OK so you know I do my best not to go harping on about all our lovely sponsors all the time - and you can rest assured we most certainly only blog what we absolutely, genuinely LOVE around here.... but with that in mind we reckon one of our newest sponsors, From the Owl, genuinely deserves a little mention!

From the Owl is a such a seriously fabulous new website, bridal registry and online shop! Everything about this site has been so carefully considered - the web design and layout is super cute and extremely user friendly, and the product selection is brilliant, featuring a perfectly edited range of homewares, affordable artwork, cool-looking bicycles(!!), experiences and charitable gift options.  Every effort has been taken to ensure the bride-to-be is well looked after, with so many excellent custom features and a great list of recommended wedding suppliers.... BUT, geniusly, you can still shop in the online shop EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT GETTING MARRIED.  True story.

There is some serious creative talent behind this sweet start-up - Marissa Fleming, one half of From the Owl, is a graphic designer and WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER of amazing skill!  Check out her stunning work HERE and HERE.  Must admit I have been known to trawl through the archives of wedding photographers just to see the gorgeous styling and get swept up in the romance of strangers... there is little better way to while away an hour or so on the net!

Anyway, enough about my creeping wedding photography voyeurism :)

Pop over to From the Owl and have a little look around.  Cuteness.
