Cream Danielle Drop Back Dress £99 – Miss Selfridge
I can’t believe how quickly the last few years have flown by. This time two years ago I had not long returned from a three-week trip of a lifetime – my amazing honeymoon to Los Angeles and Hawaii!
My hubby and I got married abroad in Ibiza and so we wanted to clearly communicate to our wedding guests that we certainly would not be expecting wedding gifts as them generously taking the time, effort and of course the cost to come out to our destination wedding was in itself the greatest gift we could have ever hoped for.
Some relatives expressed an interest in getting us a gift regardless, so we added to our invitations that a contribution towards our upcoming honeymoon would be gratefully accepted if anyone did wish to get us a wedding present.
“You being there to share our special and memorable day is the best gift we could receive. Other gifts are by no means anticipated or expected. However, for those who have expressed a desire to mark the occasion, American Dollars towards our honeymoon would be gratefully appreciated.”

Fallon & Fleetwood ♥ Paris, France
Photographer: Annabelle Denmark Photography
Fallon and Fleetwood met at a friend’s barbecue in May 2007. A brief conversation about Fallon’s tattoos led to the pair discovering that they shared a love of motorcycles. By the end of the first week this darling duo were inseparable and planning a motorcycle ride to the Rocky Mountains together…
Fast-forward six years and Fleetwood performs the perfect surprise proposal for Fallon, seriously sweeping her off her feet. She of course said ‘Yes!’ and they both knew in this very instant that Paris was always a good idea for a destination wedding!
Paris held a special place in their hearts and they had previously talked about the City of Love as a destination wedding location. They didn’t even need to discuss the idea any further, the moment that they were engaged they just knew it was for them and who could blame them? Paris really is always a good idea.
The oh-so-talented photographer Annabelle Denmark tells us more about this cute couple’s proposal and their Parisian love story…
