A Childhood Dream Realised

This weekend my childhood dream was realised. 
I have been a huge fan of Nigel Kennedy since I was about 9 years old. I wanted to play just like him... unfortunately I gave up the violin at 12...I kick myself now that I didnt keep it up.

My anniversary pressie from the Wonderful Dutchman was tickets to see him play The Four Seasons at the Brighton Dome...we were due to go in September, but it got put back until last weekend due to his recording commitments.

He honestly was sensational.... spine tingling playing. 
He reworked the Four Seasons which was a delight...fresh, modern, and such fun. Added vocals which added an eerie quality.
If you would like a little taster go HERE to see him playing in Nuremberg

He also treated us to his new works he has written; The Four Elements. In true Nigel Kennedy style it mixes classical, pop, blues & jazz. Which has me and the Wonderful One smiling.. as he put it 'only he can turn a classical concert into a rock concert!!

It was a truly beautiful experience, mixed with Nigel's fantastic sense of humor, foot banging and hand bumping the audience!! It was rounded up by him playing Danny boy which was so moving...he has a strong place in my heart and my heart will always sing when he plays.

So Thank You Nigel for being as amazing as my dreams &
Thank you Wonderful One for making this Magpie's dreams come true yet again...
I couldn't love you more

One Happy New Year Bride

Getting a Thank you email is one of the highlights of my job. I love to know my Brides, or as in this case the Groom, has had an amazing day.

Getting married on New Years Eve must be so exciting, and when Chad bought Aubrey for his Bride to be, he was pretty excited by the whole thing! But hey with this stunning bride, who can blame him!

 Their smiles say everything to me.
What a beautifully happy couple.

Chad ordered his Brides bouquet through my Etsy shop. He lives in America, and received his bouquet in 7 days! 

I have another bouquet which is being whisked off in a Brides hand luggage to New York, to get married in Central Park!! Wow, can you imagine how gorgeous that is going to be...I am waiting with baited breath for those photos!

America seems to be the hot spot for Weddings right now!

Welcome 2012...Year of the Dragon!

A quiet New Years eve in our house this year....
Candlelight flickered, giggles filled the air, silly photos taken, snuggling on the sofa, the Pip kicking.
In every way perfect.

This year is going to be a big one for us on a personal level...Or little Dragon baby will be born, and we are SO excited.

As the clock struck 12 we popped the champagne, and marveled at the stunning fireworks in London.
I just loved the silhouette of that skyline.

I hope you have lots of exciting time ahead of you this year...may the fireworks of your life be bright, hopeful, sparkling, and awe inspiring.
