Wedding; Dad tied the knot.

Last month was chaotic, from wedding dress shopping to photo frame decorating we all jumped on board to help my Dad and, now Wife, prepare to tie the knot!

Having slightly neglected my blog over the last few months I felt I owed it the low down of the day.. or more importantly, the outfit!

Weddings are stressful, particularly for women looking to find that perfect dress, and no, I don’t even mean the bride! I mean the guests! .. I spent what felt like decades looking for the right dress, trying on frocks from the likes of Ted Baker, French Connection and Reiss yet failing epically. I enjoy a statement piece and so a neutral colour was not quite going to cut it. My search spanned over several weeks and covered numerous cities. London, Manchester and Newcastle had failed me.

Cher Lloyd; Leeds O2 Academy

De de de de dum dum, de dum dum .. guess where I’ve been this weekend with my wonderful boyfriend Sam?

Obviously Leeds.. the O2 academy to see the wonderful Cher Lloyd on her Sticks and Stones tour! I’m sure we all know how much love I have for the girl, supporting her since her very first appearance on the XFactor, she has been in my life ever since <3 haa!

I realise I offer only a bias opinion but I really do feel her show was fantastic, she has such a raw voice and her ability to perform and sing live brought the room to life.

Naturally I intended to stroll up with my digi cam .. however, its absent as of late and with my phone being critically low on battery it left me with no other option than to take my big SLR with me. With Norris the Nikon in hand we queued up.. forgetting that little venues don’t tend to allow the use of ‘professional photograph’ it was only a matter of waiting before the marshal’s took him from me, quarantining him away until the very end.

Oh and my ‘critically low’ phone died. Beyond gutted that I couldn’t even snap a shot of my beloved Cher. We did however have a fantastic time, Cher sang a great number of songs from her debut album along with a collection of classics. She’s a natural performer and a star in the making, I can only predict great things for her future.

If you are going to go to her tour however, avoid taking mum and dad, the place is packed out with 12 year olds who love to shriek not quite the scene for the parents.
