'If you still believe.... perfection, you are too young to get married'

(Meg, from A Practical Wedding)

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in.

(Leonard Cohen, via Quote Garden)


Perfection is boring. Imperfect is perfect.


  1. Flaws give character. Experience teaches. Scars tell stories. But the important thing, in all of this, is the paying attention. ;-)

  2. I wish I came across your blog earlier! Are based in Scotland? Your vendors list is extremely useful. I struggle to find a good wedding photographer in Scotland but the one you listed is just fab!

  3. Thank you for this post!

  4. Yes, here's to imperfection by all means!

  5. You stole my Friday post right out from under my nose :) Ah well, your quote is so brilliant, my dear, that I might post it again on Friday along with some other thoughts and a link to you anyway. Also, did you see the style Me Pretty budget wedding last week? I'm re-posting some pictures of it tomorrow, and it reminds me of what I think your wedding will be like!

  6. Oh wow that Leonard Cohen quote is just... perfect!

    (Sorry, couldn't resist...)

  7. Vanessa, so very true.

    Loretta, I am based in Scotland! And trying to compile a list of really fab Scottish vendors!

    Meg, that's so sweet, I adore that wedding and would love if ours was similar.

    Guilty, heehee! You made me laugh!


play nice.
