It’s been a bit of a hairy week around these parts, the joys of having a big website meant that yesterday we crashed and all the lights went out for a really long time. Nothing quite gets your adrenalin going, like your heart and soul – quiet and silent, as you work like a maniac troubleshooting to try and get it back up.

Anyway, the result being Friday Roundup is a little late today so that you get to enjoy yesterday’s gorgeous posts (Modern Forest Wedding Inspiration and Adrian and Govind’s Colourful Mixed Culture Wedding).

Let’s get into the gorgeous inspiration around the Polka Blogs!
