What’s in your Ketchup?

Ketchup is back! This time with their very new collection which is perfect for the winter. We have basically hijacked this collection and Ketchup might have to personally come and take them back from us!

Each time we shoot these bags, it starts off as a challenge- WHAT should we do so it’s different? So so hard.Then it comes to us in a flash and we know exactly what we need to do. (Okay, there might have been one shoot before this where we tried to do something else but failed miserably!)

So, do you have a ketchup bag? What’s in it? Send us a picture!!

Guestpost Bon Anniversaire Ketchup!

I just saw a notification from WordPress telling me we registered this blog three years ago. THREE YEARS! Could the Unreal Bride possibly be so many years old?  WOW! This calls for a celebration and a plan. Ironically, I came to write a post about a birthday celebration but not our own! This can only mean one thing- a combined birthday party!!!! Who is going to be our birthday buddy , you ask? Well none other than our favourite bag people (I say that in the nicest way possiple)- Ketchup! You know them well from our blog- we have done some of our favourite shoots with their products, had insane giveaways and have become great friends since then! If you know the Unreal Bride, you know Ketchup!!

Ketchup celebrated their 2nd birthday last month and to celebrate -they took a trip to gorgeous Paris. Anyone who visits Paris is sure to come back oozing with inspiration. So as a way to celebrate their birthday they wrote a guest post for us on Paris annnnd if you read to the bottom of the post, you might find a pleasant surprise waiting for you!

Here’s what the Ketchup girls had to say!

idea  Paris is always a good idea – Audrey Hepburn


5 things about Paris (pronounced Fr. paˈri), that we L-O-V-E !


Très chic:

Paris is the fashion capital of the world. The french, both men and women, don’t just love fashion, they understand the true essence of fashion and they sure as hell know how to rock some seriously hot haute couture – respect!



C’est si bon:

One simply can not get enough of the breads, the cheeses, the steaks, the wines, the mussels, the brews, the desserts – yes the desserts : when we say french desserts, we mean lots of delicious calories such as macaroons, mille-feuilles, profiteroles, eclairs,tarte tatins and crème brûlées!


Talking of which… we could kill for a fresh french vanilla custard creme brûlée in a super cute cafe in Paris RIGHT NOW!

Bon appetit!

Très magnifique:

French architecture took our breath away .. The gardens, the ever-so-beautiful river Siene, the 18th century buildings, le tour d’eiffel, the champs-elysees, the museums. What’s not to love? Infact we even loved the windows, the open spaces, the boulevards and the sidewalks.


Je ne veux pas travailler:

The weather in Paris all through our birthday month was spectacular, the cool breeze and the slight drizzle along with the smell of freshly heated chestnuts made our walks in the pristine gardens along the river Siene simply surreal.


Le temps de l’amour :

The city of Paris is like a classic timeless black and white romantic movie!


Paris makes one want to fall in love, Paris makes one want to kiss…. and then keep kissing … and at Ketchup we love kissing .


Paris je t’aime!

(All photos have been taken by the Ketchup girls unless otherwise indicated!)

WAIT WAIT WAIT!! We aren’t done here yet!!

How can there be a party without a present? Or rather, TWO presents!! If we don’t love Ketchup already, get ready to love them even more because they just said they wanted to GIVEAWAY TWO bags to celebrate their 2nd birthday!
