An international occasion in Oswestry......Polly and Paul's Wedding!

With the beautiful Bride.....Polly!
When humans of twelve different nations gathered at a sleepy village called Oswestry in the quiet English countryside for Polly and Paul's wedding, it was nothing short of the remarkable fact that a small party reflective of a United Nations gathering made it across lands as well as seas to celebrate the special day of a lovely couple. I must admit that I have not been to Oswestry or Gobowen before and  found it not to be the easiest place to get to with my lacking sense of direction....but as ever a mini adventure is always welcomed in the crazy world of May! And I am happy to report there were no real accidents to worry about and friends akin to guardian angels were never too far away throughout the whole mini all was blissfully well! It was a beautifully sunny day for a church wedding, and as the bells chimed merrily in the warm breeze I felt as though I was transported back into the scene of an old film where the cast sung in all jolliness to the ditty of 'Get me to the Church on time'! The difference being both the Bride and Groom were very punctual and no pints of larger or tophats were involved at all.....even the priest commented on how punctual the Bride was! Everything was orderly as it should be, but most of all, the people who mattered were present and the newlyweds beamed with joy. The lovely day ended with lots of dancing on the dance floor and a sea of happy smiles from all the guests!

Here comes the beautiful Bride......

The happy Bride and Groom.....Polly and Paul!

Confetti time.....

The beautiful Bride and her girls!  ^_^

**So here is to Polly and Paul........Congratulations! 
May you be blissfully happy together in the many many years to come! 
Hip Hip Hurrah!**

Now for a closer look at how I wore my purple comb fascinator with my purple Pippa Dee (at Dorothy Perkins) dress! Having done an up-do last time I wore a blue fascinator, I decided to leave my hair down in some curls this time and secured the purple comb fascinator on the left side of my head with three pin curls surrounding I managed to hide my floppy ears! Matched with my short faux fur coat, simple black satin-like clutch and favourite black suede shoes with gold triangles that reminded me of the Art Deco style....I was utterly ready to attend Polly and Paul's fabulous wedding!

All dressed and ready to attend the wedding!

Somehow felt this photo should be in black and white......

I hope this post has been useful in inspiring your own look to attend any weddings this summer or to wear a fascinator.....and hopefully we will have more sunshine soon! Since getting back to London I have been kept occupied by a family graduation and catching up with friends.....also a new look and hairdo which will be in the next post!  I shall also be going to see a production by a Korean Ballet Company at the Peacock Theater in London this Thursday! Have a fabulous week my darlings....and keep those sunny smiles shining!

Until the next time,
May xx

  1. How wonderfully, beautifully special! I always feel fortunate to get so wedding photos and share in the couple's happy day in spirit (albeit after the fact).

    I adore the hats that you gals were sporting - we need to pick up on the fancy-hats-at-wedding tradition here in Canada, too.

    Wishing you a gorgeous week ahead, dear gal,
    ♥ Jessica

  2. I love all the gorgeous fascinators - so fun! Yours is especially unique. ;-)

Qipao Love: Part 5 ~ How-To choose and wear a Qipao (Cheongsam) that will love your frame!

A little warning is probably in order my this will be a rather comprehensive How-To Qipao post! I will try to incorporate my own knowledge as well as what I researched through time, to create a rough but helpful guide for ladies who might want to attempt wearing the Qipao! Why do I say attempt? In today's fast paced life the Qipao has become a rather occasional dress even for a faithful admirer like me and I can understand why it might not be the most popular attire in the world, but I also know that many ladies who admire the Qipao might resist the idea of wearing it because of different barriers. Being a lover of the Qipao me I know the fearful qualms and muffin top resistance to wearing a Qipao all too well.....whether it is a matter of figure, budget, impression, style, occasion, look or finding the excuse to wear a Qipao, I hope to be able to offer some help towards a solution and ask that you forgive me if I am too long winded. The Qipao really i…

Qipao Love: Part 1~ From Qi Pao to evolution of a dress about women!

Welcome my lovely darlings to the new address as the blogspot to custom domain transition is now officially completed! Worry not, if you are still using the address it should automatically divert to the blog and there is also a new e-mail address if you should like to drop me a line to say hello or ask any questions;! What better way to celebrate this transition than to start on one of my favourite topics.....with Part One of my "Qipao Love (All about Qipao)" series of posts!

Throughout my blog over the two years, I have mentioned the Chinese Qipao dress (also known as Cheongsam in Cantonese) quite a few times, especially during the run-up to Chinese New Year. Having a self confessed love of the Qipao, as some of you darlings who have been following may know, I can usually be spotted wearing the Qipao throughout the 15 days of Chinese New Year festivities and have been adding one or two new Qipao dresses t…

How-To: Build a 1920s inspired Great Gatsby look!

With my birthday coming up in a little more than two weeks, and having decided on a vintage themed party, it is time to put my vintage thinking headband on! Last year I had fun dressing up as a 1940s inspired Pin Up girl, and this year I have decided to go a little further back in time.....yes my darlings....we will be roaring in a 1920s glitzy Great Gatsby affair!

The 1920s has been a favourite decade of mine for quite some time.....admittedly the decadence of the glittering heavily beaded long gowns, the extravagantly flirty ostrich feathers and the shiny Art Deco gem-stoned pieces might have something to do with it! It was true that the roaring 20s was a rebirth period for many because of the survival of WW1, so living every new day as free, happy and extravagant as possible became the ideal dream. With more women embracing liberation by replacing restrictive corsets with loose flowing dresses that revealed more flesh than ever before, a period embracing individuality, creativity, …
