Olympic Couples Strike Gold

Our Favourite GB Olympic Couples

We all love a LOVE STORY

Laura Trott and Jason Kenny

The ultimate golden couple, with five golds between them, made their relationship public while watching beach volleyball with David Beckham at London 2012. It prompted one observer to say British Cycling had thought of everything to produce champions. The relationship between the two began in the build-up to London 2012, with Kenny about to come out of Chris Hoy's muscled shadow at his second Olympics and Trott about to experience her first
They are engaged.

Kate Richardson-Walsh and Helen Richardson-Walsh (hockey)

The pair tied the knot in 2013, the year after winning bronze in the London Olympics, and became the first married gay couple to compete at the Games. This is skipper Kate, 36, and 34-year-old Helen’s fourth Olympics together.

Chris Adcock and Abby Adcock (badminton)

The Adcock's, one of the favourites for gold in the mixed doubles, married in 2013 and it has proven to be a match made in heaven. They won the first tournament they competed in on returning from honeymoon and went on to take gold at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014

Siobhan O'Conner & Chris Hebborn-Walker

The Bath-based swimmers are a long-time couple. Walker-Hebborn is the tattooed north Londoner and O’Connor was born in Bath and raised in Keynsham, south of Bristol. She made her Olympic debut at London 2012,
aged 16.

Bristol International Balloon Fiesta 2016

From time to time my work takes me to different parts of the UK, recently I travelled to the South West for a consultation for a 2018 wedding and whilst there I was lucky enough to visit the
Bristol International Balloon Fiesta.

before the nightglow

I have been to the festival previously to see the nightglow, which is a great event where after what must be much preparation hot air balloons light up the night sky along to music.

On this occasion I was visiting to watch the final mass ascent, where over 100 balloons take to the sky, such an awesome sight.

This year was a little different though, seemingly Bristol International Balloon Fiesta seems to be the go to destination for Brides and Grooms.

The Bride and Groom pose for a photo before taking to the skies

Up, Up, and Away they go!!!

 One Happy couple even travelled all the way from China to have their photos taken in a hot air balloon. Chloe apparently had visited the Balloon fiesta previously as a student at Bristol university.

So if you have a head for heights, then maybe this is for you!

The balloon fiesta is a must see event, it is held annually, so if you would like to know more please check out their website below.

Celebrity Wedding Dresses - Angelina Jolie, Jessica Ennis, Kim Kardashian, Millie Mackintosh

A quick look at some more Celebrity Wedding Dresses

Angelina and Brad


Created by Versace the gown featured a simple bodice with thin straps,  the bust was complete with ruchings, a plain waist and a flowing full skirt.
This Versace Gown I think is perfect as it had sketches that their children had drawn on it. Such a beautiful tribute to her children i think and a beautiful way of adding a personal touch and something that i am sure she will keep forever.

Jessica Ennis and Andy Hill

Jessica Ennis

When Jessic Ennis married her childhood sweetheart back in 2013 she chose a
  wore a Monique Lhullier V Necked sleeveless ivory silk gown with a ruffled tulle skirt along with a full length veil

Kim and Kanye

Kim Kardashian married Kanye West married in June 2014 on a beautiful hilltop location overlooking Florence Italy in a long sleeved lace Givenchy Haute Couture gown. Her look was finished with her long flowing hair and a cathedral length veil. Mother Kris Jenner walked down the aisle with baby North.

Millie Mackintosh and Professor Green

Millie Mackintosh was looking beautiful wearing a vintage lace by Alice Temperley wedding dress and Christian Louboutin peep-toe shoes in white, her hair was styled into a pleated floral updo with a short veil that fell past her shoulders and she accessorised with some simple pearl earings.
Carrying a bouquet made up of white, cream and pink flowers, She looked happy and relaxed as she married her love Professor Green back in September 2013. She was walked down the aisle by her father Nigel, who looked every inch the proud father. Her bridesmaids were good friends of hers and the wedding was well attended by the usual expected celebrities and fellow musicians and reality tv stars.

Sad to now say that this marriage has ended, although they have stated that they will remain good friends.

So much happiness: The newlyweds can't contain their joy as they pose for wedding photos after the ceremony

I really love the simplicity and how delicate this vintage dress looked, out of all the celebrity dresses above, I think that this is my favourite, which is one is yours?
