Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey

What a week for celebrity engagements!! On the other side of the world from Prince William and Kate Middleton... Hollywood is celebrating a few engagements of its own.

Like many, i find it interesting that just one week after Nick Lachey announced his engagement to long-term girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo (with a stunning 4.5 carat Asscher cut platinum diamond ring), Jessica Simpson announces her engagement to former-NFL player Eric Johnson. After just six months together, Eric proposed to Jessica with a Neil Lane ruby and diamond ring, definitely a different style to the stunning 3.5 carat diamond ring that Nick Lachey gave her when they got engaged. I hope they both enjoy wonderful 'happily ever afters.'

Karen Buckle Photography

South-East Queensland brides-to-be can breathe a sigh of relief... I have found an amazingly talented photographer.... Karen Buckle. I know i'm a bit slow of the ranks, because Karen Buckle Photography has been around for a long time, but personally i think it's her most recent work that makes your jaw-drop... it is seriously stunning.

With a claim to take, "naturally beautiful wedding photography"... it certainly is... the proof is in the pudding.

First comes love,
Then comes marriage,
Then comes a baby in a babies carriage !
(and make sure you consider booking Karen Buckle
for some super-sexy pregnancy shots too... i die !!)

Glamorous Garters

Wedding garters have, over the years, carried a 'real tacky' stigma... and then came Etsy shop, Florrie Mitton Couture. A designer label based in England which sells the most divine, luxury detailed couture garters for stylish brides. Florrie Mitton Couture has certainly changed my mind about garters. Swoonnnnnnn !!

Garters available online at Florrie Mitton Couture, average price, $78 US.

It's Over! Eva Longoria files for Divorce

I'm in absolute shock today to read that after only 3 years of marriage, Eva Longoria and Tony Parker are calling it quits and filing for divorce.

On the luckiest day of the year, 07-07-07, Eva and Tony exchanged vows in Paris before 200 guests. An extravagant reception followed at Chateau de Vauz le Vicomte.

It was certainly a celebrity wedding as everything you could imagine was thought of, from the Van Cleef & Arpels bracelets that each female guest received, to the amazing fireworks display that concluded the celebrations. Celebrity planner Mindy Weiss created a truly romantic red-themed wedding. Eva was a picture of wedded happiness in her Angel Sanchez contemporary silk mermaid-silhouette gown with a five-foot long train featuring delicate metallic embroidery. But regardless of all the expensive details, it just goes to show that it's not about 'the day', it's about a life time together !! Another sad hollywood story.

Prince William and Kate Middleton Engaged

The moment most of the world has been waiting for finally arrived yesterday... the announcement of the engagement of Miss Kate Middleton to Prince William.

It's an announcement that really comes as no surprise and was simply a matter of time. It was only a few months ago i came across a group of sketches from top designers who set about creating designs for wedding dresses to suit Miss Middleton. I guess we will just sit and wait, as only time will tell !! I think she looked stunning at the engagement press conference, so i can only imagine how breathtaking she will look on the wedding day.

Designers have already created designs with Kate Middleton in mind.

Row 3: Melissa Sweet, Temperley London
Row 4: St. Pucchi
