Julie & Neil’s French Alps Wedding Image by Yann Audic for Lifestories Wedding Photography 

I’ve been coveting a whole lot of winter bouquets lately, which I’m sure is in part due to the current season (brrrr) and also the crisp colour combos of white, green and greys. I mean, I’m a big colour-girl, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes the understated elegance of the cool palette just hits the spot.

We have a couple of great giveaways in today’s Friday Roundup, along with a whole bunch of gorgeousness that you may have missed from our specialty blogs. Grab a coffee (I’m onto my second after a ladies night out), take a seat, and enjoy the roundup!
