November… The month of fireworks, family and the anticipation of the festive season. Yep, it’s set to be a good one!

But before we get too far into this next phase, let’s look back at the delights of October. Here’s what we’ve been up to, what we’ve been loving and who we have welcomed in this Autumnal treat of a month.

Press Highlights

The big highlight of October was seeing our Modern Vintage styled shoot set at Iscoyd Park looking beautiful on Love My Dress.

The kittens of the sixties inspired our Shoot – La Jolie Mariée. Why, you only need to flick through any of the fashion magazines to see how hot this style is right now! We love the sixties vibe and for our Modern Vintage boudoir styling it was the perfect era for Katrina Otter and I to channel. Think soft, undone, Bardot-bunny with nude lace and blush pink florals, all wrapped up in a romantic Parisienne bow.

It looked perfect on Love My Dress so thank you to Annabel and Tamryn for such a beautiful write-up!

*Full story and some behind-the-scenes action coming soon*

November is all about looking ahead for Coco, with further development of our (already) very pretty website, Christmas plans for the soon-to-be engaged and of course thinking about our impending first birthday at the end of the year!
