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.

Plan Your Wedding by Color

Here’s a big tip to save you time and money; when choosing your wedding colour scheme firstly pick a colour theme that speaks to you and your partner but also be sure to consist what suits the venue you have chosen. Working with the organic aesthetics of the venue will help to create a cohesive look and save your efforts if there are already decorations in place which can work with your theme.

Also remember to be inclusive having a theme and colour palette reflective of you as a couple will help to encourage buy in from your partner and engage them in the planning process.

For my own wedding I was clear from the start regarding the colour scheme I wanted; for me it had to be green to reflect my oriental background and H2B’s Irish background and it just so happens green is my favourite colour so a winner all round. Our venue was a countryside location a marquee on a backdrop of rolling green fields so it was easier to create a complete theme using the natural backdrop of the countryside landscape, continuing the green theme into my wedding stationery and wedding attire as gentle accents.

The UK Asian wedding fair

Productive day at the UK Asian wedding fair held at the Hilton Hotel in Bradford.

There was certainly a good turn out from both eager brides to be and even a substantial amount of grooms to be as well as a wide range of wedding suppliers.

I have to say I was quite impressed though unfortunately could stay for the fashion show.

Watch this space for my great finds the the fair, there were a couple of suppliers there I’m really excited to promote!

Welcome to the wedding fair season

September marks the start of wedding fair season.

Wedding fairs are an invaluable source of information, as Parlour Millinery said to me “its a great opportunity to meet suppliers and create a relationship as you are trusting these people to make your dream of a perfect day come true”. Its also a good time to check out what’s available from local suppliers and determine if maybe you need to be looking further a field though in my opinion local is always easiest and best but its always good to know what’s what.

For Yorkshire brides here are a few coming up, you can also keep up to date with various wedding related events via the events page on the blog.

Wedding fairs tend to be an annual or bi-annual affair, staged at the same venue year on year so if you’ve missed one you really wanted to get to don’t worry just check with the venue they most probably have another coming up in 6months time.
