Here’s to all you flippin’ fantastic February brides … past, present and future … enjoy your special month!
I am delighted to be continuing this new monthly feature for 2019 especially as you seemed to enjoy the “January Bride” a lot!
For those of you not familiar with this feature I have decided that for 2019 I will do a monthly blog for the month that is in it and share wedding inspirations, real wedding features, celeb weddings, themes for that month etc!
Real Wedding Featuring My In-Laws Wedding
When I starting thinking about featuring a real wedding for this February blog I realised that we haven’t been to a February wedding … yet! But fear not I had a better idea! Niall’s parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this month! Imagine … 50 years! It is such an achievement! So I then wanted nothing more than to feature them! Gretta kindly took out her wedding album and I was lucky to get a few of these photos! It was actually so lovely to hear stories about their wedding day! Special memories!! Wishing Gretta and John a very Happy Anniversary!
Celeb Weddings in February
With such a big fan base, I am not surprised that in 2015 Benedict Cumberbatch married Sophie Hunter in a private ceremony on the Isle of Man after a super short engagement.
They announced their engagement in November on The Times newspaper and to make him even more the romantic – they got married on Valentine’s Day!
Their announcement read: “Mr B.T. Cumberbatch and Miss S.I. Hunter: The engagement is announced between Benedict, son of Wanda and Timothy Cumberbatch of London, and Sophie, daughter of Katharine Hunter of Edinburgh and Charles Hunter of London.”
The couple definitely had a busy 6 months as they welcomed their second son on March 3 2015.
There are no photos of this wedding but here are two cute photos of the happy couple!
Another top secret wedding took place on 15 February 2014 with Leighton Meester and Adam Brody tieing the knot only a few months after they announced their engagement! They are a very private couple but this is photo was taken just a few days after becoming husband and wife!
The gorgeous Gisele Bündchen married Tom Brady 26 February 2009. They are such a stunning couple and always look so loved up every time we see them! And yet again this was another short engagement of only 1 month! It must be a trend for February weddings 😉
And last but by no means least is Amy Schumer who is celebrating her first wedding anniversary on 13 February 2019 with her husband Chris Fischer. And we were over the moon when she shared her wedding photos with us on Instagram!
WeddingsOnline Gala Awards
This month is a very exciting month for me as I am a finalist in the WeddingsOnline Awards 2019. They are taking place on Monday 18th February in the Mullingar Hotel! I am in the middle of trying to sort out my dress, make-up and hair!!
I will be posting lots on the evening! Wish me luck 🙂
There is no way I could write this blog without talking about Valentine’s Day! Whether you love it or hate it, it is another day to remind you to say “I love you” to you partner! For someone like me who is mad about weddings, Valentine’s Day does not rate that highly for me. We don’t go out for dinner and we don’t do cards (as I get the best handmade ones from the kids) but what I do do is cook Niall’s favourite dinner and we sit down for it in peace when the kids go to bed! For us it is about making the time to be together!
