Do you ever watch those mind-blowing experiences on TV and wonder what it would feel like to be chosen to take part? To be sent on an exotic holiday or take delivery of a luxury car…or have your dream wedding day planned for you. Well, it turns out, those fantasies do become reality for real people!
When I spotted ITV’s This Morning was looking to throw a wedding this spring, I knew the exact people who should put themselves forward. My good friend Annie is, thankfully, just coming out the other side of a hellish year, having discovered a lump in her breast while watching a feature on This Morning this time last year urging women to check themselves.

Pompoms are fast becoming the decoration of choice at shabby chic / country garden weddings. There’s nothing more striking than pretty balls of paper hanging from the ceiling in a marquee or barn, or decorating an afternoon tea party table.
Pompom Blossom (www.facebook.com/pompomblossom) has come up with a unique twist on the trend – bespoke, hand-dyed, two tone pompoms! Each pompom starts off life as 15 sheets of white tissue paper, before each piece is hand-dyed so the centres and outer petals are different colours.
