Hello and welcome to Bridal Musings!
My name is Elizabeth Muhmood Kane. I’m originally from London but currently living out of my suitcase, travelling the world with my handsome husband, Zee. We both work online so before babies and mortgages come along we thought we’d go on a big adventure.*
I started this wedding blog soon after my own wedding in 2011 as a pretty little place on the internet to geek out about weddings with fellow wedding obsessed folk. Three years on, it’s my
full time dream job and I’m still just as enamoured with weddings!
It wasn’t as if I spent my childhood dressing up in net curtains and planning Barbie’s dream wedding but somehow, the moment that sparkly ring was on my finger and I discovered my first wedding blog – it was love at first click.
I love all things wedding related, especially of the chic and unique variety, and want every reader to enjoy their wedding planning and their wedding day as much as I did.
Wedding planning is a once in a lifetime experience – it’s a chance to be creative, to express yourself and share the things you and your partner love with the people you love.
There are so many fun and exciting things to do / see / enjoy in the run up to your wedding. From venue visits to menu, wine and wedding cake tasting (yum!) deciding on your wedding music (one of my fave parts) and, of course, those dreamy days spent in a sea of satin and lace at bridal boutiques.
It’s not without it’s stresses and strains but for the most part it’s a joyful experience all culminating in the best party EVER, surrounded by your favourite people in the whole wide world!
Whether you opt for an intimate wedding at your local city hall, a rustic shindig in a barn, a destination wedding on a far flung beach, an opulent, black tie affair in a ballroom or a simple, backyard wedding, there’s something on Bridal Musings for every couple.
(Our name may be Bridal Musings but grooms are very welcome here too!)
I love to promote the work of talented wedding vendors here on Bridal Musings, from make up artists to stationers, dress designers to planners and all the other people who work tirelessly to ensure that each couple has their ‘best day ever’. It’s always such a treat when one of my industry friends pops by to share their expert tips and advice!
As a lover of beautiful imagery and film buff, regularly featuring the work of creative photographers and videographers is a dream come true. I’m a big believer in the importance of having your wedding documented in a meaningful, beautiful way. (Trust me, it’s well worth the investment.) After the champagne’s popped and the confetti has fluttered away, all you have left from the day are your memories so capture them and treasure them.
But I’m not just all about weddings, I’m also an early years teacher/ dog person / lover of beautiful imagery / undomestic goddess / Londoner / avid cinema goer / internet and world explorer / red lipstick wearer / daughter / friend and wife to the most wonderful man, Zee.
But enough about me, what about you? I’d LOVE to hear your bridal musings!
Say ‘hello’ in the comments below any pretty post – it’s always so lovely to hear from fellow wedding obsessives / suppliers / brides and grooms.
Oh and FYI, most days you’ll find me pinning all sorts of pretty things on Pinterest.
