lovemydress 93 years young Surreal morning of roller-coaster emotions involving heartbreaking news and wonderfully uplifting and funny moments with my dear Grandpa Norman. I'm so very inspired by this gentle and loving man's courage and positive attitude. His parting words to us as we left the hospital ward just now, after telling me to NEVER vote Conservative that is, were, 'It's been such a lovely surprise to see you all today! But you can bugger off now, as I'd like a nap' #grandpa #family #love 8h

lovemydress My 3rd and final #ShareTheHonestLove post for tonight @mrscaudery - there may be more tomorrow This is my husband and I on our wedding day on Friday 20th March 2009. Our dear friend Scott is delivering a reading to us both - it is a reading that Phil chose himself. I *love* how our photographer Karen McGowran has captured Phil’s emotion at this precious moment in time.

This is what Scott read: “Today is Spring Equinox – the very first day of Spring. It is not by chance that Philip and Annabel chose today to celebrate their coming together in marriage and the start of a new chapter in their life. In Spring time, all of nature comes alive; the flowers of the plants breathing sweetly, give life and hope to a new beginning. Nature is stable and orderly and each Spring, the spirit of love returns, like the plants and leaves.

The power of the garden to inspire love, is expressed in this poem that was inscribed by an Egyptian Girl on a papyrus many years ago; ‘I belong to you, like this plot of land, that I planted with flowers
and sweet smelling herbs. Sweet in it’s stream,
shy by your hand,
refreshing in the North Wind.
A lovely place to wonder in, Your hand in my hand.’

lovemydress …..and following on from my last Instagram, THIS Is what #ShareTheHonestLove reminds me of, a breathtaking image photographed by the wonderful @Mckinleyrodgers for a wedding that was featured on Love My Dress. It inspired me to write a piece entitled ‘Pausing for Thought to Consider the Wedding and Wedding Photographs That Really Matter’, and you can read this post here:- lvmyd.rs/pausing4thought

The bride in this photograph is enjoying a precious and tender moment with her father who had travelled all the way from Colorado to London to see his daughter tie the knot. Her father was then in the early stages of dementia - I know his dementia has sadly progressed since as the bride has been in touch to say so, and to tell me how much she treasures this image. Admittedly, this isn't an image I might have included in a feature say, a couple of years ago. Now, it is one of the first type of images I'm drawn to when I'm preparing a real wedding to share with readers for the blog, because it moves me, and reminds me what weddings, for the most part, are all about, a celebration of love, life and family.

So I salute you @MrsCaudery for bringing it back to the fore and encouraging us all to #ShareTheHonestLove

  •   lovemydress So it should be @misskp10 - it has become more and more important to me as time passes and we have lost some of those at our wedding already, including my dear Grandma - read the feature I link to if you've not already - make sure your photographer knows that this is super important to you xxx 2d
  •   thetwinsweddings I adore this photo. Perfect. 2d
  •   jordannamarston I love that! #sharethehonestlove yesssss! @lovemydress x 2d
  •   mrsjpage Beautiful! 2d
  •   thevowtexasweddings Awesome idea! It's the love that makes it all worth it!! 2d
  •   vintage_headdresses Beautiful image, so evocative and moving. Brings tears to the eye as soon as you look at it. Xx 2d
  •   bridgelower Thank you as always for sharing this and for your kind words. This is one of the things I remember most about that day - my dad singing quietly in my ear as we danced. Not homemade bunting or pricey favors or how good the dessert was, although all that stuff is fun. What really matters is that I was surrounded by those I love. I'm so grateful for the talented people who captured those moments so when I too am old and gray, I can still remember. @mckinleyrodgers @reellovefilms 2d
  •   gemmaruthwilson Getting married in two days and this #sharethehonestlove idea has been really comforting. Thanks! X 1d

lovemydress Today, my dear friend and colleague @MrsCaudery of @FetchamPark has launched a new social media hashtag, #ShareTheHonestLove, designed to encourage couples and all those working in the wedding industry to remember what really is important in this whole crazy carnival of wedding planning: the love that’s celebrated, shared and felt on a wedding day. “I regularly warn our couples against obsessing too much over the ‘pretty’ and this wedding – and this incredible photo – is the perfect example of what a wedding day is really all about. I wish brides and grooms to be could see more honest and real photos like this on blogs and in magazines; it would remind them of what’s most important. Whilst I think our Instagram and Facebook pages are filled with the prettiest of weddings, I’m going to make sure I share a lot more photos like this too. I love the wedding industry but I think sometimes the message gets a little lost. Let’s all remember and celebrate what a wedding day is really about: let’s #sharethehonestlove.

Well said @MrsCaudery!
I’m about to share another image via Instagram that this reminds me of completely, but for now, lets enjoy this precious moment captured on camera by @EddieJudd during a wedding held at @FetchamPark earlier this year.

lovemydress Little shot I took earlier on my iPhone as I was sat in the comfy arm chair of our living room catching up on a few emails. I adore Autumn, and for so many reasons, it is my favourite season by far - a last beautiful burst of colour and light before the dark winter months I feel so lucky that we are able to watch all the seasons unfold from the beautiful hilltop view of our house in Whitby #autumn #view #afternoon #afternoonsun #briggswath #whitby #sky #sun #trees #viewfrommyhouse #seasons 3d
