You know those couples that are a bit of a surprise, but actually are so in love they are perfect together. You know one of those couples that have everything and nothing in common?
Are you a winter bride wondering how you're going to keep warm in this chilly weather?
Here's a round up of some beautiful options.
(Ps. I'll never advocate buying new fur, so if you love the look, please know that faux fur is readily available on Etsy and vintage fur is available from hire shops.)
There's no words to accurately describe what its like to walk into a bedroom and find your baby blue. Just writing that makes me sick. My husband and I, are unfortunately no strangers to this, our baby Delilah has been blue more times than we can count. It's every parents worst nightmare. It's completely unnatural.
But we are the lucky ones.
Yes, lucky. Because every time she's been revived at hospital, or at home, we've been told we were lucky. Lucky we're not labelling this a SIDS incident because SIDS is past tense. We cannot bring ourselves to imagine how devastating it would be.
Sudden infant death Syndrome is the unexplained death of a precious soul. in our world of technology and medical advances, there are still hundreds of families like ours and families who have gone through much much worse, who cannot explain what is happening/ what has happened to the most wonderful gift the world can ever give.
You can help change that.

UNIFORM • Is it normal to get this excited about an apron? Thanks @cargocrew for making the SFF team feel super profesh 🙌 Now to figure out how to brand and show off. Can't wait to see Mr SFF try it on tonight 😜🙋
If you really forced me to pick a favourite type of bouquet, these would be it!
I love the unpretentiousness of wildflowers, they are the most sustainable bouquets as well as they are seasonal and most often than not...weeds.
One of the huge pluses, other than being a rad original bride is you get more bang for your buck. The amount of wildflowers you can buy in comparison to the amount of nursery grown flowers is ridiculous.
My own wedding flowers were wildflowers.
Here's a collection of the most gorgeous bouquets that have caught my eye and my breath whilst down the rabbit hole of pinning. Usually late...really late or early in the morning whilst my babies are sleeping.

I took my sweetie girl Hazel Lou on a special holiday for just the two of us this weekend.
The impact its had on our relationship I can't accurately describe. It must be so hard for the eldest child to suddenly lose a big portion of their mother to someone else. We mended a lot of little misunderstandings and laughed til our bellies hurt. It was so beautiful.
Also beautiful was rural NSW.
Stunning in its drought stricken bareness, grass bleached to an unearthly white and trees looking bare ad silvery.
One of my closet friends lives in Walcha, a little arty town about 5.5 hours drive from Sydney (it took me 7 both ways but I stopped for pretty flowers along the way!).
The cattle farm they manage was beautiful and cold and their garden was incredible.
Whilst I answered no emails all weekend (sorry brides) I did poke around her Autumn garden and get an amazing variety of foliage, in 4 degree weather.
I loved, Hazel loved it, now I hope you love what I've done with the bits and pieces I collected!
Happy Mothers Day SFF Village!
In between all the mum stuff: lukewarm tea, crying, washing, spew, yup spew, I painted this little tribute to you!
Thinking I might turn it into a Boho invite in the future, what do you think?
Have a lovely day xx
Throwback Thursday and a Happy 4th Anniversary to the other half of the SFF team.
"Do I have to have flowers? I'm not really...a flower person."
NO! You don't have to have anything you don't want to.
Here are some non floral alternatives that I'm pretty in love with. Ok, that's an understatement. I'm obsessed.
