The long bank holiday was bursting with celebrations for this family, as my husband and I celebrated 10 years of marriage, my cousin had a beautiful bouncing baby boy Leo (on the same day as the Duchess) and my brother Solos proposed to his gorgeous girlfriend Lucy and she said yes!
Such a wonderful weekend of champagne on ice (throughout), lots of laughter and exciting plans made for the future-we love a wedding here, so much so, I had 2, one in South Africa aged just 24, my husband 25 and another, a glorious Greek wedding in Harrogate, Yorkshire a year later.
I’ve written all about our specials days and my marriage in this post here: Celebrating 10 Years of Marriage (it’s really been the best 10 years of my life) so here I’ll focus on style, what I wore on date night and the gorgeous diamond ring my husband gave me to mark our decade together. Here’s to many more hey! Rings and years of marriage 😉
Date night saw us head to an intimate and truly romantic Italian restaurant in Leeds that with eyes shut could have been Rome-and being a romantic night, only red would do!
Thanks to Baukjen for my dress, a flattering long sleeved little red number worn under a soft leather jacket by River Island.
Here I am with my little red dress toughening up the look a little with a black leather jacket for a Saturday night dinner out at a local Italian.
I left my hair loose in bouncy natural curls (Peter’s favourite style of mine), wore my diamond, emerald and ruby earrings and necklace set, a gift for my birthday, my faux snakeskin Clarks (really) heels and hung my Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 bag on my arm. Together we toasted to our 10 years: meeting as MA students, now with 2 beautiful boys and so many happy memories.
Peter and I are one another’s ying and yang, I tend to be the life and soul of the party, he’s quieter and more zenned than me (I’m a born worrier), we’re both foodies, love travelling and watching back to back episodes of Family Guy-together we just totally work-he calms me down while I get him excited. Two imperfect people who make an ideal match. Aw. Now that’s enough soppyness for you all for one blog post!
