This afternoon lovelies we’re jetting off to Germany for Ferdi and Julia’s vintage inspired affair. We’re approaching it from a slightly different angle this time round as it’s actually the pair’s photographer – Katinka – that will be talking us through her view of the day.
I for one love Julia’s oh so chic drop waist gown which she paired with the sweetest rose and gypsophila bouquet. And just wait until you see her perfectly embellished floral inspired headdress…you will die!
I also need to make reference to Julia’s pearl stud earrings which I’ve not seen on many brides of late but they suit her right down to the ground; a wedding trend that needs bringing back methinks. Or actually just a sartorial choice that we need to see more of generally in everyday life.
Coco Chanel would be proud.
If the title of this wedding hasn’t got your heart pumping already then honestly folks what the heck is wrong with you!
I promise you what you’re about to see is truly epic. This folks is how to do a super cool, super chic, city wedding.
Cheryl and Brooke married in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona at Santa Anna church and then whizzed off on Trixi bikes afterwards to their favourite champagne bar to celebrate. I’m told by David from Modern Vintage Weddings that they and their wedding party just rocked up in ten of these bikes and ordered 30 bottles of Champagne before heading to Hotel Mercer for dinner by Barcelona’s best chef.
How insanely rock and roll is that?
There are so many things I love about this wedding that I’d be here until Midnight listing them all for you but I will say that Cheryl’s headpiece is perhaps the most beautiful hair accessory I’ve seen this year and I absolutely most definitely need a gold lead embellished cake in my life.
Cheryl and Brooke…take it away!
For once I’m at a loss with where to start when talking about Clara and Cedric’s achingly beautiful big day. I’m like a Catherine Wheel spinning off in a hundred and one different directions wanting to tell you lovelies about each and every one of the exquisite details that make up their destination Italian wedding.
I actually feel like I’ve scooped the jackpot this morning by being able to share this ‘I Do’ with you and by the time you’ve finished pouring over all the images I can bet my bottom dollar that you’ll be pinning them to your heart’s content too.
I love Clara and Cedric’s supersized wedding party and their equally slick sartorial choices; Clara’s veil and flower crown are particularly heavenly. And then there’s the romantic Italian courtyard set amongst the backdrop of a historic villa and bucketloads of sunshine. And by jove these two know how to kiss – their portrait shots are filled to the brim with passion and love and laughter.
And that folks is exactly how it should be.
Let’s take a look…
If you’re a regular visitor to these pages of pretty then you probably will have noticed that we’ve been posting the brightest and most beautiful destination weddings in our Wednesday afternoon slot.
Michelle and Rob’s laid-back yet luxurious big day is no exception – filled to the brim with bountiful floral accents, love and laughter. I particularly love the sartorial choices of both the bride and the groom in this ‘I Do’ – from Rob’s spotty bow tie and blue suit to Michelle’s couture lace frock.
Actually, I’m more than obsessed with Michelle’s ensemble actually which she designed alongside bespoke bridal designer Lisa Redman after an afternoon with a pile of Vogue magazines. The lace! The back detailing! Oh the sleeves! Don’t even get me started on the delicious antique veil…
And lastly I would very much like to see more wedding couples portraits on Moroccan rugs outside. They look flipping brilliant!
I’ve always particularly loved those weddings which take place in the childhood home of one of the couple getting married; in fact it was an idea I toyed with myself when I was planning my big day back in 2012. So when I saw the beautiful destination wedding of Anne-Laure and Quentin which took place last year in Quentin’s parents’ house in France I was blown away.
For a start it really is the most exquisite building but when you combine the picturesque riverside location and all the love and attention that has been bestowed on the place, it warms you from the inside out.
I’m biased when I say that no-one does gourmet cuisine quite like the French but I’ve yet to see a more elegant evening menu than oysters and cocktails topped off with dancing until dawn.
And Anne-Laure’s bouquet?
There’s something exquisite about the soft dreamy light of the south of France and Rob and Katy’s super romantic day is filled to the brim with it.
I adore this wedding and not just because there’s a Château and a vineyard and crazy beautiful architecture and sun-kissed happy people but because it’s proof that you don’t need to go overboard on all the details to make your day a rip-roaring success.
I also have to say that I am loving Rob and Katy’s sartorial choices. Rob is effortlessly cool in his very french blue and white striped shirt and blue suede brogues (actually I wouldn’t mind a pair of those myself!) and Katy steals the show in her Givenchy inspired delicate wedding dress which Rob’s mum made for her. I know! How rad is that! I’m more than a little bit smitten with the back detailing too and her L.K.Bennett heels are the perfect finishing touch.
Lastly I am totally game for a three day wedding in the South of France so if anyone’s hosting such a do then I’m more than happy to pop along. Honestly, it wouldn’t be a bother. At all.
