Tigerlilly Quinn: Our Weekend in Pictures

Our Weekend in Pictures


FYI Rocotillos hands down do the best milkshakes in Bristol. Pregnant me was addicted and it seems un-pregnant me feels the same way.


Me and my buddy, hanging out with this little chap is the best. Life sure would be dull without him.

I see this church often on our way to the zoo gardens and I just love everything about it! The architecture is just so fantastic, doesn't it look like a church from the future? That and the typography, well everything about it really. I'd love to see the inside some day.


Wilf top is c/o Little Peco he was getting lots of compliments from the market seller's that day. I mean I bias of course but I do think he is pretty cool..who am I kidding, he's the coolest of the lot of us


On sunday we headed up to Clifton for a stroll, we wanted to check out a stall at the Alma Vale Rd Fayre for wedding-y related things. As our days start pretty early we ended up stopping for (second) breakfast on the way at Rocotillos, pancakes for Wilf and I to share, veggie breakfast for Tom, much needed cawfee for mama and we all three shared a bucket of the BEST milkshake in town.

We took a quick look at the stalls, resisted the oh so pretty - do not need - but really really want vintage rails and then headed home for lunch. Increasingly I realise my day and blog is very much dictated around food. My mum has written a diary for most of her life and she spent most of her twenties documenting the food she ate. I guess it just runs in the genes, I live for a good brunch.

In the afternoon we took a trip to visit our wedding venue, Tom had never seen it so it was exciting to plan out where we would have people sit, the decorations, kids play area and all the rest. I flit between feeling super chilled and excited to a little overwhelmed to be planning it in just a couple of months. For the most part (with Tom's help) I'm organising the whole shebang on my own. My parents are not 'wedding people' so won't be attending (I guess that's weird for most people to hear, I'm planning on explaining it soon). At times I feel like maybe my experience must differ from the average bride but I love that it's going to be done our way and feels very personal. Plus it was never going to be that kinda wedding. I'm so touched by how many of our friends are helping out with making bits and bobs or offering their skills, Tom's sister and brother in law will be our wedding band and I'm SO excited about our first dance, it's a pretty amazing song!

For those of you who are married how did your wedding planning go?

I craved milkshakes when preggers too as it was last July and was a eat wave. Love Wilf's little outfit - so cute!

Eleanor Willock said...

we are heavily into milkshakes at the moment so thanks for the local tip! By we, I of course mean my daughter. Of course!

Gorgeous pics. My parents are not wedding people either and wouldn't attend if I did and I wouldn't want them to either as much as I love them. If and when I get married it will be a different type too. :)

Rocatillos looks like it could be some cool little place in Barcelona - you always find the best cafes! I too live for a good brunch or 'second breakfast' - we must have been Hobbits in a past life.

I love all the little details you have, the foam board mounted photo's look great & love your little dressing table nook. The fireplace reminds me of one I had in my old bedroom it was black though, the white looks much prettier!

Lovely photos! Little man is beyond cute!!


I planned the majority of my wedding on my own with help from my hubby and my mom. It was a "traditional" wedding but chill and relaxed and more casual than anything. For the day of a friend of mine acted as my wedding day coordinator so that I literally had to do nothing but get my hair done and smile for photos. I totally recommend having a wedding day coordinator to do things like set up decor, tell the wedding party when to walk down the aisle, to keep the dessert table stocked, etc. That way you can just enjoy the day!

I'm so excited about your wedding!! And I love reading about all the food you've eaten over the weekend, I miss good cafes, there are none where I live! xx

Mmmm, milkshakes! We did all our wedding planning, I was surprised at how involved my husband wanted to be, but it was his wedding too! I remember finding it all quite hard work and felt like it took up too much of my brain space but it was definitely all worth it in the end. Some of it was traditional but most of it wasn't! I found a blog post about it from the time, my husband wrote several about it in great detail but mine is more a favourite moments one - http://chatiryworld.wordpress.com/2009/06/14/moments/

Mmm, Rocotillos. I loved planning my wedding but thank goodness there was no Pinterest around as I would have OBSESSED about everything! I love your broad-rimmed hat. I want to get one for our holiday soon but...it's a want not a need...want is a kind of need?

Your room is charming, its full of character and colour. The little blue French style dressing table is a gorgeous feature and I agree that the fireplace is so pretty. I love that you have your own art work up too. A really personal room :O)

Jannatul Rahamoni said...

nice room. I always prefer colorful bed sheet koz white bed sheet= dirty and messy for me ..

Lia Billimore said...

Oh I love Wilfs top and your dress is amazing!

Wild & Grizzly said...

Love love your bedroom and the colour, it looks quite uncluttered although I know you said you'd been tidying for a while ;) I have just ordered some more prints for our lounge, inspired by seeing the work on your walls. x

Wilf always looks so cute! We started wedding planning recently although it won't be until February 2016. It's going to very different to most. Quiet and with our family, because to use that's the most important thing. Lovely post as always :)

Lauren said...

My wedding planning was done mostly in a couple of weeks because I was in the US and Chris was in Ireland. His visa got delayed by 6 months and he only arrived a month before our wedding date. So little details like flowers & food mattered less to me than actually having a dude to marry! Looking back, I wish I had him with me to do share the fun of picking things out. Hope you guys are having fun. Oh, he did arrive in time for cake tasting. We knew the first cake we tried was what we wanted, but pretended to be indecisive. Nothing beats 15 free slices of cake at 9:30am! It was definitely a highlight of the whole affair!
