... the marriage of true minds......

Call me an old sentimentalist but having such a wonderful wedding here recently got me daydreaming about what I might wear if I was twenty (thirty?) years younger and planning a big wedding celebration here at Les Soeurs Anglaises; a sort of brain candy exercise.  It would be really interesting to hear whatyou would wear and how you would celebrate if you were six months away from the Big Day .....

Balenciago 2006                                   Yohji Yamamoto 1999

               Bienenkiste, Irving Penn for Vogue US 1995                Comme des Garcons 1990                                      

       ? Talk about princess for a day......                                   and beautiful bridesmaids                             

Carol, Les Soeur's transport co-ordinator and wedding organiser extraordinaire (many of you who have visited us in the past will know her well as the cheeky, little sister) is now taking bookings for weddings next year and 2016 at Les Soeurs Anglaises through her company, Simply French Weddings.  Interestingly she comments, 

"Although white is the classic colour for a bride, other colour is always a very important part of the celebrations.  Each wedding might begin with the bride-to-be describing her favourite colours, and with these as a foundation we can design almost every aspect of her wedding - choosing the flowers, table linens, the decorations for l'Espace (Les Soeurs' beautiful venue), lighting, food, seating etc.  Colour is a powerful ingredient which we love synchronising with the greens and flower shades from LSA's amazing mature gardens as a backdrop!"

If you're helping to plan a wedding for someone you love sometime in the near future you might like to visit the artful Jessie Chorley's shop in Columbia Road, London where she makes her unique handmade wedding invites, seating plans, wedding albums and other bespoke celebratory items.  All of which can be treasured and/or framed once the Big Day is over.  And if you think you might like Jessie to show you how to make your own, we still have one place left on Jessie's workshop, Usable Treasures, here from the 2nd to 9th September.
Ah, what fun to be young and in love again!
