When in Rome

Striped Cop Top H&M (Old similar here and here) Ted baker floral full skirt you can buy here (Im wearing a 0 for reference)
On Friday, my fiancé and I travelled to Rome, a trip which had been booked pre-engagement but which was the perfect ending to a brilliant week. I had previously been to Rome last year, so instead of cramming in the innumerable tourist attractions, we were able to stroll around Rome enjoying the sites whilst catching up with a good friend who lives there. We were fortunate enough that our accommodation was a two minute walk from the Colosseum. We both agreed that no matter how many times we viewed to colosseum, the vista remained spectacular.

Now that I'm home and back to reality it is definitely time to begin planning the big day. I've already learned that dates are booking up fast. I casually emailed a few photographers during the week only to be informed that they were booked solid every weekend for Summer 2016! We are going to view a few potential venues this week so fingers crossed we will find somewhere that suits. I would love to hear your thoughts or advice on wedding planning so shoot me an email or leave a comment below.


  1. Love this look. Only advice I can give on planning a wedding is.... If you have a set idea in your mind of what you want - don't change it for anyone! I had a small wedding (50) and planned it in a short time. But did my own thing. :-) it's so exciting xx

    1. Sounds fab Siobhan. Your dead right too..just need to decide on what I want first! Lol xx

  2. Congratulations on your engagement Martina! You look fab, I love the florals teamed with the stripes :)

  3. Congrats on your engagement! Love that skirt by the way!

  4. Love, love, love this outfit! Looks like perfect day and congrats on your engagement!!


  5. The reception is held in the main hall. The space at banquet halls in Chicago was gorgeous and perfect for a wedding. I have been to several weddings here but it hasn't gotten old. The place is absolutely beautiful and the views are breathtaking.

  6. You look absolutely beautiful my dear. So excited for your engagement, you will be a beautiful bride <3
