We have just come back from our long-awaited-epic trip to Italy! In the short 5 days we managed to find spare in our calendar we have visited… *Drum-roll*

Rome, Pozzuoli, Napoli, Sorrento, Benevento, Faicchio, Sperlonga, Anzio, Latina, and Lazio!

This is the next square after the Trevi Fountain. Yes, we threw our coins and made our wishes 🙂

Few things we’ve found out during our stay in Italy:

  • McDonalds does not exist, only signs. We think its an inside joke.
  • The best water is free from the street fountains
  • Convenience stores are few and far between, if any at all
  • Milk in Coffee, EH? I don’t think so mate! (This has resulted in us not wanting milk in our coffee anymore, so much better!)
  • The only thing that separates police from us is their uniform. They do not care.
  • Speed limits are unknown
  • Pizzas are square!
  • Autogrill… Service station food… There are no words aside from perfection.
  • Naples smells so bad… We found out it’s because of gases from surrounding volcanos!
  • For every 1 car, there are 100 scooters (and yes, Laimonas now wants one)
  • Nobody speaks English, nobody!
  • Italian music is the happiest and best, but only in Italy. Bring it over here and you’re considered camp. Here is our favourite:

* WARNING* This song can only be truly enjoyed if you meet the following criteria: you are driving through the mountains in Sorrento, on a hot summer’s day, with windows rolled down.

Driving in Italy is both exciting and terrifying. There are practically no rules and everybody is in it for themselves, and we believe that cars come without indicators as standard. Also, zebra crossings mean nothing, it’s merely decoration for the roads.

Ta-daaaaaaaa! That’s us! Behind is our lovely Fiat 500 and the road towards Faicchio, Julietta’s Dad’s home town.

Here is one of our recent favourite shots from a Sikh Wedding of Rajdeep & Navdeep! The colours and patterns from Indian Weddings are absolutely gorgeous! We have also used this shot as their Presentation DVD case, which will be posted in a few days 🙂

I regularly use pinterest these days to neatly organize my interests in categories, cos we need that… Anyway, I have an ever-growing wedding ideas board on there, jam packed with all my favourite designs, dresses, photos and reception decor. It is much fun, so much so that I thought I would share my latest find on here. It’s a very sweet, simple and heartfelt idea that I will definitely do when my day comes.

Now I’ve never had the joy of knowing either of my Grand-dad’s as they both passed on before I was born, but I have my Dad, who to me is the funniest man alive. He’s a little man who talks in riddles with his heavy italian accent, loves his allotment! Always laughs and makes everyone else laugh. He has a way of teaching me life lessons without me actually realising until years down the line when I remember what he said and how it completely made sense! He is just the best person anyone could ever meet. And for some reason, the older we both get, the better we seem to get on.

He’s a lot older than most people’s Dad’s my age, so I guess I got the best of both from him in the sense than I can imagine this is what having a Grand-dad would be like! But that’s enough babbling on, heres the idea that I fell in love with…

You take your Dad’s or Grand-dad’s favourite shirt/any piece of clothing (or the one that you always remember them wearing) and cut a heart out to sew onto your wedding dress. I think it’s such a sweet touch and could be a tradition you start, where you can pass it on to your daughters and they can pass it on to theirs etc.

Just a little idea to think about. It doesn’t have to be your male relatives, it could be anyone in your family who you have the softest spot for 🙂

All you lovestruckers have a lovely week!

And don’t worry, I’m certain the rain will stop one day.

wedding hairstyle ideas

Lately I have been obsessed with different styles of braids in my hair, french plait, fish plait etc and only just recently learned how to do them myself. I think plaits are very in at the moment and brides seem to be going for up do’s with little plaits tucked in, which I think looks very cute.

One of my favourite websites for tips and trends on both hair and beauty is The Beauty Department. It’s a lush blog with lots of new posts about newest trends and tutorials so you can try it yourself. No bride really wants to do her own hair on her wedding day (some might!!) But here you can look through lots of styles and have your bridesmaids try them out on you or even just choose your favourite and have your stylist do it on the day 🙂

I hope you find this helpful and fun! With all this rain, you could have a slumber, get your fluffy slippers out and plait each others hair like your back in school again!

Rain drops of Love,

Julietta

Like I said I would, here is the pick I chose for the Cornwall wedding. It’s a sweet little tune and I hope you enjoy it.
