"Hey Lauren, can I take your dress outside for a moment?"  Err, you're not going anywhere near the pool are you?"  "Well, not exactly...." And so Mike (my assistant) and a very nervous mother of the bride very carefully carried a gorgeous Maggie Sottero pearl coloured dress past the pool and

Yeah, this was never going to be a normal wedding...Candy had other plans. I'm going to fast forward through the bridal preparation pictures.  There are two reasons for this.  (1) There are a LOT of pictures to show you and (2) Mark has to be the first person to see some

Did you hear the one about the two vegans who wanted to get married at a centuries old castle on Valentine's Day?  They got their wish. It was slightly unusual to be at a wedding on a Monday but Monday was a very special day (and a great day for a

I love weddings in London churches. You have all the hassle of getting there and parking and never getting a clean shot of the outside of the church and all that. But then you go inside. And it looks like this. And you have such a

OK, phones are back on the hook, new year planner is on the wall and I'm back from my "summer" holidays.  PeopleByRyan is open for business for 2011. After last year's wonderful though moist visit to Venice, we settled for somewhere a little warmer this year.  Which gave me a chance

Wizard playing on the stereo?  Check.  Presents wrapped?  Check.  Wine mulled?  Check.  Pies minced?  Most def. It's Christmas and I'm about to close down for the holidays. There's just one thing I haven't done this year.  For reasons "beyond my control" I haven't sent Christmas cards out.  I'd love to say this

Every wedding gets a nickname.  This will always and forever be "the one where it snowed".  It doesn't matter how many weddings I do in the snow, sideways driving, 4 hour traffic jams, amazing hospitality and the fact that I didn't get home for 28 hours mean that name is
