The big day came and went in a flash and thank goodness the rain held off until the meal and we were all under canopies. It was my first ever beach wedding and it was amazingly beautiful. Being by the sea is one of my favourite things to do so to have it as the back drop whilst watching my cousin get married was a very surreal experience. I was so pleased with my bargain £20 dress from Topshop, it was comfortable and cool to wear and my sandals were perfect - after all that indecisiveness! I accessorised with items I already had, I love it when an outfit comes together like that. The clutch was a gift from my Sister many Christmas's ago from Faith. I spied it as it was all suede (which I love). My necklace was from Matalan and as it was fairly large I kept my rings and earrings simple and just added a pearl bracelet by Thomas Sabo.
The one thing I had completely over looked was my hair - and that heat, oh that heat! Think Monica from that episode in Friends a few hours later. No amount of hair and sea salt spray was going to sort it so I pinned a few bits back and forgot about it.
I couldn't let this post go live without sharing a few snaps of the stunning wedding party. I know as a Mummy we are all bias but my little angels looked so grown up and scattered those rose petals with such pride they made me a very proud Mum. Their dresses were found in the Summer sale at Debenhams half price at £24.50 and were by John Rocha.

The Maid of Honour looked gorgeous in her peach gown. It looked even better in the flesh and I thought it was a designer, something from Temperley I asked? Um no, Asos - WOW! Great job Asos, really really well designed and made, it looked a million dollars.
And finally, the 'piece de resistance', my beautiful cousin. Flawless H, utterly flawless.
|The necklace was hand made especially for her by a relative, how gorgeous is it cascading down her back|
Back to the UK with a bang; loads of washing, work, cold weather and a toddler that is struggling with jet lag and the time adjustment. But hell, it was worth it!
