Mr and Mrs Butterfly Got Married


In a 19th century chapel in North Yorkshire at 3:30 yesterday Paul and I got married and officially became Mr and Mrs Butterfly!!! Thank you to everyone who sent us their love and best wishes before we headed back to the UK to get hitched, we have felt incredibly special.

I'm feeling a bit loved up today so I wanted to tell you how Paul and I came together and created Butterfly Collection. If you don't already know, Paul is responsible for every image, boob truth, Facebook profile and video that you see on Butterfly Collection. He is the only man in Canada staring at images of boobs all day to see if there are any odd shadows or fit issues!
I write the words then Paul puts them into beautiful pictures - a perfect partnership
We met at a media agency where we sat next to each other for two years before we realized that we were actually meant to spend our lives together (we're both blonde so we're slow on the uptake!) After just a few months of dating I told Paul that my ultimate dream was to have an online lingerie store that gave full bust women the choice, understanding and knowledge they need to feel great about themselves. Without a moment of hesitation he said "Let's do it now then we'll never regret not trying." I knew then I was the luckiest woman in the world.

We have worked night and day to make Butterfly Collection a reality (and managed to get engaged in the middle of it all as well!) Butterfly Collection is so much more than a bra store to me, it's a place for busty women to feel celebrated, respected and loved... all the things Paul makes me feel.
I wanted our photography to be sexy but also beautiful and realistic. Our models always love working with Paul.
We always say that I am the words and Paul is the pictures. I tell him what kind of photography appeals to me and the things that make me laugh or mad about boobs and he brings them to life. Because he has two sisters Paul has a huge respect for women and I think you can see that from the way he shoots our beautiful models. He lets their smiles shine, their curves sing and never, ever objectifies them.

Today we feel so incredibly blessed that besides finding each other we also found what we were meant to do with our lives. Our skills have come together to create a company that we are both immensely proud of and we feel we have made a difference to some full bust women.

As we are celebrating our marriage and love for one another I also want to send huge love to everyone who has supported us and Butterfly Collection. We will continue to grow a haven for full bust women with your love and support so thank you. Next stop... Barcelona for some honeymooning Butterflies... xx
