Photos by Dom John
If you caught my latest wishlist post then you’ll know that I’ve been preparing for the first wedding since I was so small that I’m unable to remember any of it.
The time finally arrived last week when Dom and I headed to not one but two summer weddings. And this post is purely to show you what I wore for the occasion. I committed a minor fashion crime and wore the same outfit for both weddings, even down to my shoes, bag and accessories. In an ideal world I would have found two beautiful dresses to really make the most of the chance to dress up a bit. But to be honest, when it came to finding something I didn’t really know where to start!
In the end I went for this little Oasis number, because not only was it both slightly casual and slightly dressy, but it was also summer appropriate and in the sale. I also felt pretty confident in the knowledge that I probably wouldn’t end up looking like one of the bridesmaids in it. That was a faux pas I certainly didn’t want to make in front of a bunch of people I’d never met before.
My boyfriend seems to have reached the age where the weddings are (or will be very soon) coming thick and fast, but going to two in the space of a week has made me realise how different each wedding is to the next! Both were lovely, but these photos were taken at the first in Burford, Oxfordshire. I thought it was best to get them over with before there were any chances to get dinner down my front. Just joking. Kind of.
They were also taken with my iPhone as I thought it would be best for Dom not to get confused for the wedding photographer! Anyway I hope you enjoy and you can alway check out my Instagram for more of the action, and follow me on Bloglovin for more summery content.

This weekend I will be attending the first wedding I’ve been invited to since I was about six months old. I am pretty bloody excited about it. For years, when I was younger, it was my dream to be a bridesmaid. The thought of having a pretty, pouffy dress, to have a little bouquet of flowers and my hair done properly – that was heaven to me. Sadly no family members or friends have got married, or ones close enough for me to be invited anyway, for 22 years!
So now, finally, I’m off to a wedding as my boyfriend’s plus one. I don’t even mind that I won’t know anyone there, I just want to witness the whole thing. The ceremony, the dress, the reception, the first dance, the bouquet tossing… All of it!
Finding the right dress for this occasion has proved a little trickier than I thought it would be. In my mind I thought I would find a beautiful, summer occasion dress, a pair of heels and some pretty accessories and be ready to go. Unfortunately my budget was not as extensive as I hoped it would be, so after shopping around and getting a bit sick of looking at dress after dress I *think* I might have found the right dress.
After re-acquainting myself with a few Adobe programs when putting my last wishlist together, I am determined not to lose the skills again. My solution to this is to window shop until my heart’s content and create a wishlist that will hopefully give you a few ideas if you are also looking for a special occasion dress.
I hope you enjoy! Don’t forget you can follow me on Instagram, especially if you fancy seeing some photos of said wedding, and on Bloglovin to find out what’s coming up next on here!
