Bicycle Brides

I was flicking through a wedding magazine last week , only to find 3 photos of ladies on bikes, this one being my favourite of Bride and Groom with the beautiful pink Pashley Poppy. I am getting married in April and as a proud owner of a blue Pashley Poppy, (the perfect wedding bike if such a thing exists!) I am currently trying to work out as which point in the day we can jump on our bikes. I think cycling to the wedding could be dangerous as may be too nervous and cycling home afterwards is definitely not a good idea as we will have had a few drinkees, so I'm thinking we should cycle to the reception, after the ceremony. It may not be the most practical way to travel in a rather delicate vintage wedding dress but it will be fun.
I've found some great photos of like minded couples who have saddled up for the big day on great blog Green Wedding Shoes

Has anyone else pedaled their way to marital bliss?

Miss Dior's on her bike

Doir uses the bicycle's modern yet classic elegance to promote their new Fragrance, Miss Dior Cherie. We love the bright pink coat and purple Beret, not sure how far she'll get with that big bottle on her lap though...
