Sophie + Sam's wedding was my first of 2016... St Marys Church Norton and then onto Seaham Hall on a very dark and wet 2nd day of January 2016. Their beautiful story was still there to be told...
Today, I'm writing this post whilst tucking into a mountain of chocolate coated marshmallows (the only mountain I will ever be attempting).
I started my week off in The Big Smoke - London, not Billingham.. ha. The three days I stayed happened to be during London Fashion Week and although I didn't attend any shows, the fashion bug was infectious throughout the city. Aside from being a couple of degrees warmer than the north, it's also one of my favourite places to visit to do some serious clothes shopping. London comes with a care-free attitude that allows you to be as experimental as you like when it comes to your clothes and image - this reason alone makes it one of the most inspiring cities in terms of creativity, art and style.
When visiting the capital, it is almost obligatory to do the 'touristy' thing and be photographed with Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and other generic 'touristy' sights and to genuinely enjoy yourself whilst doing so (even if it is the 50th picture of you standing in exactly the same position, with exactly the same view of Westminster behind you). Admittedly, for me I will always enjoy being the generic tourist. However, this time I did manage to add a couple of new places to my visited list. One of which was the delicious Choccywoccydoodah... Oh my! Where to start?! It's basically heaven for any chocolate/ cake lover. For those of you who have never heard of it… Choccywoccydoodah is a company born in Brighton and specialises in, well, chocolate. There is a successful TV series following the Choccy chocolatiers, showcasing their amazing art work and allowing them to then open another store located just off Carnaby Street.
Extravagant, elegant and extraodinary, Choccywoccydoodah is the perfect place if you're looking for that one-off, beyond-your-wildest-dreams wedding cake. As well as creating cakes for special occasions, they make and sell gorgeous, innovative chocolate gifts (hence the marshmallow mountain) AND that's not all! They also have a cafe where you can eat a wide range of mouth-watering chocolate desserts. So, if you are visiting London soon/ live near and are planning a wedding or just have a sweet tooth, I definitely recommend a visit to Choccywoccydoodah!!!
