I hope you’ll forgive me posting an image of myself for this Sunday Edition. There is a black and white bridal portrait of my grandmother that I spent a lot of time looking at before our wedding, so when Elizabeth sent this photo over, I immediately felt like this was that timeless image for me – the one that maybe someday my own granddaughter will look at before her wedding…

    Thanks so much for sharing.

    The picture is stunning and definitely a classic for future generations to love. I want make sure now that I have a timeless portrait taken on my wedding day too.

    I also adore your wedding dress – it’s gorgeous but also looks really comfortable. You are definitely wearing the dress rather than it being the main event which is something I’ve been very conscious of when hunting for my own dress.

    I’m busy planning my wedding in September and your daily inspirations are making the process even more exciting.
