After a very busy Saturday, getting wedding things done in the day and attending a wedding reception Saturday evening, Sunday was definitley a day to chill.
The day got off to a good start with a visit from our friends Hannah and Alex. Hannah is one of my bridesmaids and had come over for a catch up and to try on her bridesmaid dress. I acutally ordered the girls dresses from Ebay - They came all the way from China and as anyone else would be I was a bit worried about the quality and fit but I can now breathe a sigh of relief as all 5 dresses fit each girl perfectly - apart from the length they all need to be hemmed shorter! I wont go into much more detail about them. I'm sure once the day has been an gone I'll write up a post or two sharing details as I know it could be helpful for anyone else getting married in the future.

We were a bit naughty and ordered Dominos for lunch/dinner so instead of continuing to sit on our bums in front of the TV we decided to go on a stroll along the canal after consuming pizza. We are pretty fortunate where we have moved to, as the canal is literally across the train track from us. There are a lot of fields behind our estate and on the opposite side of the canal. Some filled with live stock, so I did say hello to a few cows and sheep! It was nice to just take some time out and go for a stroll, armed with some bits of bread incase any ducks were about. We passed a fair few canal boats making their way up towards Newbury, as well as a few cute dogs splashing around in the shallows! It was just really nice to take an 45mins or so, away from everything and mooch around! It's funny sometimes you just dont realise what you have right outside your doorstep!
Today I am heading off out with Sarah to go on the hunt to find my perfect foundation for my wedding day!
Much love,


  1. I love being near to somewhere I can walk! By the canal looks great!! I always wonder about eBay dresses. I've heard quite a lot of positive things from people getting bridesmaid dresses from china lately!



  2. I've been trying to find places near me to go for lovely walks, am not having much luck living in a city though. So glad the dresses fit, that must be a huge relief! xx

  3. Looks lovely there, gorgeous and sunny. I was naughty this weekend and ordered domino's too. Oops! :) Tasty though!

  6. Gorgeous photos. We have a canal just down the road from us but hardly ever go for walks across there. Stupid really.x

  7. It was nice to take some time out and people watch in the sunshine! x

  8. It was! We should do it more often really!

  9. Sometimes you just cant say no to pizza! x

  10. Yes a huge relief! It's just the hems that have to be altered, they are all too long!

  11. It is really nice, especially when the weather is good!

    I know I was a bit worried but it all worked out okay and the quality is amazing for the price i paid! x


Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
