Get your sunglasses ready because todays wedding is a serious colour fest. Loads of funky DIY and tons of cool ideas and Kates light dusky pink gown and the pastel maids look amazing against the lush backdrop of Sefton Park Palm House…
Have you got your sunglasses..? Well get your Pinterest boards ready too because you are most certainly going to need them!
Lately I’ve been craving colour. I’m not sure whether it’s the influence of Spring with her purple hyacinths, sunshine yellow daffodils and girly pink cherry blossoms but frankly I just can’t get enough of a bright hue.
So Harriet and Mishal’s colour pop affair is the perfect way to satisfy my cravings on this overcast morning. Set amidst possibly the most perfect backdrop I’ve ever seen at Sefton Park Palm House in Liverpool, these two married amongst the palms and exotic blooms.
I particularly love Harriet’s dad’s souped up Lagonda which looks a little as if it’s come from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang – what’s not to love – and the EPIC dancing that took place once the sun went down.
Honestly folks this is a venue and a half.
Let’s check it out…
Chloe and Nathan are from the east end of London and married at the Larmer Tree Gardens in Dorset – a stunning place with peacocks running around all over the place!
Theirs was a wedding full of east-end charm with a sprinkling of festival chic thrown in which suited the outdoor venue perfectly. Everyone danced on the lawn and sang into the night when very a very special and super secret guest arrived… Stevie Wonder!
Ok, so it wasn’t the real Stevie Wonder, but as the night bounced on and The Larmer Tree Gardens became the Glastonbury Festival for one special evening I’m not sure anyone even noticed…
There’s something utterly chic about a groom in a tux.
It’s not a sight we see much of at the moment with most menfolk either opting for Morning suits or for super swish modern day attire and personally I think it’s a bit of a shame for a man clad in black tie always makes me go a bit weak at the knees.
Adrian almost gives the lovely Amy a run for her money with his Dries Van Noten tux and shiny dress shoes and colour pop pink hydrangea buttonhole. I said almost because Amy is most definitely hot to trot in not one but two completely gorgeous bridal frocks and EPIC accessories. Just wait until you see her shoes.
Perhaps the most amazing thing about Amy and Adrian’s wedding though is that every single guest ‘married’ the couple. Yep you heard right, their best man printed the vows the pair had written onto flash cards so that their guests could read them out in unison for the couple to then repeat back to them.
Georgie and Michael are both extremely artistic people and their creativity poured into every aspect of their big day. Michael designed for all the stationery including the beautiful invitation and the paper goods at the reception… And that is just for starters.
This was a real global gathering with family flying into London from Australia & Ireland; and they all chipped in with the decoration… It was a totally DIY Affair.
We have a seaside treat for you lovely folks this morning. Mandy and David’s outdoors affair on the Dorset coastline is an absolute stunner from start to finish. My Favourite things from this vintage seaside themed wedding are the old school ice-cream bike, the creative home made stationery and those cliff top deck chairs… Especially the shot of the happy bride and groom holding hands and reclining.
