Mario Testino, Blog Crawl and a Hippy Wedding.

I am excited to be participating in today’s blog crawl inspired by Will and Kate’s wedding today. This genius idea came from Danielle of Breakfastattoast blog. I am really supposed to be sharing some fun wedding ideas with you, but I strayed just a bit. You see, when I heard that Mario Testino would be photographing Will and Kate, I was just grinning from ear to ear. I was so happy for him! I feel like I know the guySmile. As a result, this post will be somewhat of be an ode to him.  I will be featuring a wedding editorial that he recently did and also a simple hippy wedding that I fell in love with.

Please enjoy:

Presenting the Hippy Wedding:

It’s certainly not as grandiose as Will and Kate’s, but you can just feel the love whiffing in the air…

And now, presenting the man of the
hour, Mario

Mario photographed the models in this wedding editorial, also inspired by the Royal wedding  for Vogue UK, May, 2011. The models are wearing these really beautiful wedding dresses that make me want to get married all over again so I could don one of these!  Kate’s dress has been shrouded in such mystery and I’m bursting to find out what her dress will look like. By the time this post goes live, I would already know and I am sure I will not be disappointed!

Did you know that Mario Testino also received an invitation to the Royal wedding? Danielle, this was such fun! Really great idea! Have a fantastic weekend everyone! Be safe! XX

PS. Giveaway Winner will be announced on Monday! Thanks for participating everyone!
