Dear lovelies,

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas and the happiest of holidays!

I hope you take a well deserved break from work and wedding planning to simply enjoy spending time with the people you love.

I’ll also be taking a little break from Bridal Musings over the next week to spend time with my family here in Dubai.

Then it'll be back to getting settled in our new flat and eating our way around all the delicious restaurants in Notting Hill.

And because you know I can't write a post without a pretty photo or two ~ here's some dreamy festive inspiration from the uber talented photographer, Paula O'Hara.

Flowers and floral crown: Floral Earth | Make-up: Jennifer Ireland | Hair: Lynette Murray Hair  | Dress: Petticoat Lane Bridal | Model: Sophie Irwin

Such exquisite imagery. You can see the rest of this beautiful shoot over on Paula O Hara's blog.

Exciting Happenings on Bridal Musings in 2013

I can’t tell you how excited I am about all the loveliness I’ve got in store for you in 2013.

Most exciting/nerve-wracking of all is the brand spanking new blog design and features that will hopefully go live in a few weeks. Talk about butterflies!

I'll also be welcoming more talented contributors to these pretty pages in 2013 so if you're a stylist/florist/planner or a DIY/health/beauty/fitness expert interested in sharing your expertise on Bridal Musings please do get in touch. I'd love to hear from you!

But in the meantime, if you need a dose of wedding loveliness why not…
