Cindy ~ Peaches and Cream Bride....

Good Morning Monday and all you lovely people who will stumbled upon my dot of the cyber universe!

This beautiful photo of a friend on her wedding day captivated me when she placed it on facebook a few months back. Have a look...

She looks breathtaking, don't you think? The photographer manged to capture a very special moment in time of a beautiful young women on her wedding day...

Her youthful beauty, the delicate tulle and lace, the small roses in her bouquet, her peaches and cream complexion and the way she is framed with the light makes this images of her completely beguiling. I simply love this photo! Love it! It is one of the most wonderful wedding photos I have ever seen, and Cindy kindly allowed me to use it. Thank you, Cindy.

I am still getting to grips with all the wonderful tools at my disposal to create a blog. Quite apart from that I have also gone of on a different track, experimenting with mood boards, colour combinations, etc.

So this lovely image of Cindy, on her special day took me on a whole journey of discovery,,,,,

I think, that those luscious peaches and pink cabbage roses, reminded me of Cindy's wedding photo.

And... she inspired a few colour combinations. The delicate blooms of the Prunus fits right in...

So, I experimented a bit more...

And some more...

...and I began to imagine where such a beautiful bride might live and I can so see her descending from that stunning Nouveau Staircase looking for all the world like a princess..

Genius design....

 I am not very in to pink, but this peachy pink boudoir is a yes please!

And, who could resist this?


A huge thank you to Cindy for allowing me to use her wedding picture.
I do not know the name of the rose below, but I think we should name it ... Cindy.

I am linking with Mosaic Monday over at Dear Little Red House where I spotted some beautiful garden images. Please wonder over there and have a peek!

I do hope Monday is behaving herself immaculately!

Happy Living
