Casper&Pearl headband | Random eBayed dress | MaxMara trench coatI have a complicated relationship with the concept of marriage. I'm both its biggest sceptic and most obsessive fan. I know exactly what my engagement ring will look like (1930's sapphire set in rose gold), what I'm going to wear (this Reem Acra S/S 2008 gown - here I must clarify that I decided on it before it was on Gossip Girl) and who my marriage celebrant will be.
That's pretty impressive for someone who believes in love like she believes in Disneyland: it's dreamy and wonderful and fun to experience for a while, but one day you have to wake up and realise that it doesn't actually exist in real life. That said, I'm not anti-love. Would I ever fall in love? Probably not, to be honest. I'd probably get married if I did, in spite of my belief that marriage is entirely irrelevant. But that doesn't mean I can't wish to be beautiful and wear white and have an excuse to throw a spectacular party, does it?
What I'm getting to is that I spent the weekend working for White Wall Photography (go look at their photos; you won't regret it!) at The Eclective, a wedding expo for creative couples who lean towards the non-traditional. It was incredibly visually inspirational, and of course loads of fun to spend a few days slogging it out with fellow creatives.
Go on, you know you want to share your thoughts on marriage...
