Two years ago today, I became Mrs Robertson! On June 1, 2013, I finally became a bride and a wife to my handsome husband, Mark. It’s the day I’d hoped and dreamed of forever and yet struggled to imagine ever living out those perfect moments for real.
But, it happened and we were blessed with the most incredibly perfect day. Not a thing went wrong (ok, so calling him by his middle name during our vows will be a moment never to be forgotten, but…) and it truly was the happiest day of our lives. » Read more
Another week, another wedding, another stunning photo for our wall! This weekend was the wedding of my brother-in-law. With my handsome husband as best man, I was even more keen to get a professional photo of the pair of us together. Step in wedding photographer Chris Deller (www.chrisdellerphotography.com).
Despite pouring rain all morning, as soon as it was time for the ceremony, the clouds disappeared and out came the sun! The backdrop to the photos was this far too stunning for words pink blossom tree in the grounds of Orsett Hall (www.orsetthall.co.uk) which, along with the bright sunshine, made for the most incredible colours.
Within hours of the big day finishing, Chris popped over these two incredible images for us. » Read more
Thrilled to have been sent this photo of my husband and I by Matt Heath Photography (www.mattheathphotography.com). Matt was the photographer covering my friend’s wedding over Easter weekend and he snapped this photo of us both enjoying the day.
It doesn’t matter how hard you try, you’ll never get a photo as wonderful as one by a professional. Sure, snapshots can be fun and full of meaning, but the colour and composition of this photo is just beautiful.
Thanks, Matt! Can’t wait to see the rest of the photos from the day now.
This last week has all been about celebrating my husband’s birthday. I love an occasion (you know this about me by now!) and I love spoiling my loved ones and so I go all out on birthdays. This year, I was able to give Mr Robertson a giant surprise…an oversized balloon by Love Me Do Balloons (www.facebook.com/lovemedoballoons)! Ok, so when he arrived home to be faced with it, he almost had a heart attack, but he loved it once his heart stopped racing!
Who knew there were so many aspects to consider when choosing your wedding flowers? I’m lucky to have a mother-in-law whose hobby has been floristry for many years so she could help us with our decisions. I knew from the start that I would like white avalanche roses, white calla lilies and gyp to keep things simple against our bridesmaids’ pale silver dresses, but it’s not that easy for everyone.

I love a photo! If my husband hadn’t stopped me, our home would be covered from top to bottom with wedding and honeymoon photos. I love being surrounded by such happy memories and am always keen to discover new ways of using my photos.
