Last weekend we were gazing up at the stars in a dark skies park, this weekend we’re heading to the bright lights and big smoke. In between there’s been a whole lot of life happening, and all the highs and lows that includes. Today is all about the love. Here are our highlights…
If your thoughts are turning to dress shopping, then here’s a date for your diary. On October 12th, the preview of the new Bridal by Freja collection is due to take place in Edinburgh. We’ve had a peek and we can’t wait to see more!
And if you can’t make it along that evening, then why not head to one of these wedding open days, where Freja Designer Dressmaking will be exhibiting – Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (Sunday, September 24th), Mansfield Traquair (Friday, September 29th) and Hopetoun House (October 1st).
Calling all bloggers
If you haven’t entered our competition to become the next WFIL guest blogger yet, then don’t worry. There’s one day left to get your entry in.
We’re looking for brides or grooms who are getting married in Scotland next year. However intimate or extravagant your wedding is, we’d love to hear your story.
If you’re good with words and happy to share the highs, lows and in-betweens of your wedding journey, then you could be the perfect match.
Quote of the Week
“Everything turned out perfectly… it had been raining the day before and in the morning but the sun came out for the ceremony, the midges weren’t too bad, dolphins appeared in Ord Bay later in the evening and there was the most incredible sunset. To top it off some of our guests saw a shooting star as they were making their way back to their campervans! You couldn’t have made it up.”
Catie & Simon’s musical beach wedding made us smile lots this week. Who knew that you could meet your other half through morris dancing!
This beautiful life
Five things I’ve been doing this week:
1: Trying to improve my Spanish skills with the brilliant (and free!) Coffee Break Spanish podcast.
2: Dreaming of a road trip to the Isle of Harris. Those white sand beaches!
3: Gazing up at the stars in Dumfries and Galloway. One of my favourite things about autumn.
4: Stocking up on poetry books. It’s been a sad week after the sudden loss of a dear friend, and losing myself in other people’s words on love, life and loss, has been soothing.
5: Making plans with friends. Too often work and life gets in the way, and it’s been great to reconnect after a busy summer. Every day counts.
Wherever the weekend takes you, remember to hug those you love extra tight. If you can throw in a smile at a stranger and a few shapes on the dancefloor along the way, then even better. Christina x
