Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s First Photos as a Married Couple—See the Exclusive Pics of the Newlyweds!

Wowzers here is it the moment wedding bloggers and brides to be all over the world have been waiting for all weekend, nay all year since that epic proposal in October……. the first official glimpse of the Kimye wedding.

And she didn’t disappoint with a exquisite Givenchy dress and veil.

Obviously I don’t know Kimmie personally so I can’t comment in that light but fashionably Kanye has been a positive influence on the new Mrs West.

Third time certainly is a charm a far better improvement than that over the top dress with endless white trail and frankly bizzare head band she worn for wedding number two and who knows what to her first teen trip down the aisle.

No this time Kim has nailed it she looked elegant and sophisticated with simple hair and make up all the attention was on the beautiful lace detail of her dress and veil.

No to mention the breath taking scenery and classy theme I mean who wouldn’t want a wall of flowers as their photo background.

Well don’t Kim it’ll be hard to top this one.

Hat’s off to the Millinery Appreciation Society

It was a few years ago when I stumbled on The Birds Yard, a wonderful collective of fashion, crafts and treasure housed in one old building just off Briggate in Leeds city centre.

I went in to check out a friend’s new shop area on the second floor but was immediately drawn to a collection of fascinators and headbands arranged in one of the glass towers. This is when I met Melissa.

At the time I was approaching that period in a person’s life when you become a serial wedding goer, and my first non-parental wedding was approaching so I decided to go all out and get a hat for the wedding.

From the minute I met Melissa she was enthusiastic and brimming with creativity, we arranged to meet the following Saturday when I would bring my already purchased wedding outfit for her to create an accompanying custom headpiece for.

On our initial meeting I picked out pieces from Melissa’s collection that I liked to base my own new hat around, I also provided her with the extra sequins and beads from my dress that were spares. We decided on a straw based fascinator using the beads and sequins to draw the hat in line with the dress and a large feather to compliment the colours of the dress.
A week or so later Melissa invited me to come look at progress and when I had a few amendments Melissa totally understood where I was coming from and when I finally came to pick up the finished piece I couldn’t have been happier. At the wedding I got lots of compliments and was only to happy to recommend Melissa.

Following our initial creation Melissa and I went on to commission another 2 beautiful head pieces, she always seems to have a raft of ideas and know exactly what I mean. I usually turn up with the dress and some idea of the style of headpiece and Melissa crafts something beautiful.

With this in mind, as soon as I knew I was getting married the first person I contacted (other than family) was of course Melissa. My eyes had been opened to accessibility of custom made accessories so obviously I would want custom made wedding accessories. At present Melissa is working on a custom made ceramic tiara something just a little bit special and unique, a finger tip length veil (though her cage veils are divine), hair combs for the bridesmaids which compliment my tiara and bridal bouquet made from lush fabrics.

So what should you do if you want to experience the glorious satisfaction of wearing a custom made piece well, if you don’t live in Leeds then do a little Google search for your local craft spot, head to boutiques not the fancy over priced types the vintage handmade and starting out student types. Check out a local craft fair and don’t be affair to try something you’ve created you can make your vision come true though it might take a little planning and direction.

Once you’ve found your local craft network or creative person to undertake the job get a mood board together, basically just collate images, fabrics anything that inspires your piece and have these to hand when you’re describing your ideas to the person making your piece.

It may not be right first time but, that’s the benefit of a customized piece you can amend it work on it and evolve your idea.

Keep popping back as I’ll be blogging our progress as Melissa creates my very special custom made wedding accessories.
