The Talented Mr Ripley Groom Style  Image by  Samara Clifford

I couldn’t go past this week’s absolutely beautiful styled-shoot for inspiration when penning this Friday Roundup – not only for the sentiment, the style and the joy it has shared, but the fact that it had a travel-theme, particularly strong through the bespoke letterpress stationery created just for the shoot (by the inimitable Saint Gertrude Letterpress).

Mr Herringbone and I are off for a jaunt across the US for 5 weeks, and I’m just champing at the bit to be inspired by new sights, sounds and tastes. I’ll be checking out what’s new in the world of Weddings, and taking snaps and notes along the way – just to share with you all!

So now to the roundup – with so much from our fabulous specialty blogs, and some great events not to be missed! Enjoy!
