Nadia and James married in Lyon, France. Nadia had two dresses and being a lady with a petite frame she looked immense in both of them.
With a gentle colour palette and infusing her Scottish heritage with James’ British heritage but staying true to French style, this is a very eclectic wedding.
Drinking, Dancing And Celebrating
Nadia The Bride: James and I were blessed husband and wife in a tiny village near Lyon, France. On the 11th of August 2012 we said our personal vows (embarrassingly I cried – a lot) in the church where my uncles were christened, where my aunt got married and where we lay my late grandfather to rest. From the church we moved onto a rural manor house to start the vin d’honneur – drinking, dancing and celebrating followed.
We wanted our day to be rustic, elegant and fun. There was no strict colour theme and no talk of ‘carriages at midnight’. We opted for colours that felt natural – greys, greens, blues and neutral earthy tones. Wherever possible we tried to have a (con)fusion of classic English and French touches.
Throughout the day there was a healthy amount of DIY paraphernalia: wicker heart pew ends laced with rosemary, lavender confetti, a huge old wheelbarrow filled with old-school beers, dozens of paper pompoms, and an abundance of hand painted signs painfully put up at the last minute (thanks Mum & Dad!) to help people navigate the rural roads.
A Little Lady
Dress shopping wasn’t easy being a little lady of 5ft nothing.… View the full post.
I love this wedding.
Billie and HB got married in France. A stunning venue with gorgeous views and a very special ceremony. One like I’ve never seen before.
I also have serious statement necklace envy. Billie’s look is one of my favourites of the year so far. I love a quick change up for the evening do (cue said statement necklace). And the bridesmaids! A beautiful sea of ivory goddesses. Oouff. Ruddy gorgeous.
Billie The Bride: HB and I got married at my Mum and step-dad’s house in the Pyrenees in France. It was somewhere that I had spent time as a child, and had fond memories of. The views are amazing and despite us having some rain the day was mainly bright and glorious.
Subtle But Smokey
My friend is great with hair and so she id my hair on the day. I did my own make up. I wanted to keep it quite soft with a subtle but smokey eye.
My dress was from Emma Victoria Payne Bespoke. I was absolutely thrilled with it. It could be tied in two ways to give me a day and an evening look. Sort of two dresses in one! It was so fun to be able to change it up a little bit. I teamed it with a statement necklace, a matching hairpiece and some super sky high heels.
I wore a veil during the ceremony and then took it off when I changed my dress straps for the wedding breakfast to totally transform the look.… View the full post.
When I first took a look at Meg and Adam’s wedding, I had serious heart palpitations.
And then when I read what Cole and Jakob from Nordica Photography had to say about this gorgeous pair…particularly the amazing Meg…I just had to sit down.
And folks you’ll soon see why.
She only ruddy renovated her wedding reception. Yep. You heard right. Meg gutted an entire barn on the farm where she first met Adam because the place holds so many special memories for them.
Now that’s dedication.
And I haven’t told you about the emerald green bridesmaid dresses (pantone colour of the year don’t you know so Meg is bang on trend!), their antler motif, the epic outdoor ceremony, the pickles and the decor.
Come quickly, let’s take a look…
One Rad Couple
Cole & Jakob From Nordica Photography:We are Cole and Jakob from Nordica Photography – wedding photographers from Vancouver, Canada. Not so long back we were lucky enough to shoot a barn wedding with a rad couple named Meg and Adam about an hour south of Vancouver, Canada on an island called Westham Island. We just had to share it with you…
It Was All Meg’s Vision
Long story short, this wedding was all Meg. It was completely her vision and her passion that put everything together, and we were blown away by her ambition from the very first email she sent us right up until we left their party the night of the wedding. She is simply incredible.… View the full post.
Lorna and Paul hold Miami South Beach in Florida very close to their hearts. For one, they love the architecture of the place, the Art Deco vibe and Old Hollywood influences but it’s also where they first holidayed together as a couple.
It’s also where they chose to get married too – at the beautiful Spanish Monastery with the most wonderful gardens. Apparently it was love at first sight.
And that’s not all…they partied on down at The Tides, South Beach – an iconic 1930’s building that screams Hollywood glamour. Beginning with a Cocktail hour complete with signature pink concoctions and a gorgeous meal they then danced the night away on the rooftop of The Tides until the early hours.
Lorna The Bride: I always knew I wanted a shorter styled, vintage dress. After visiting a couple of bridal shops I realised they weren’t quite what I’d had in mind. I thought about having a dress made for me but didn’t know where to start. Then I went to a vintage wedding fayre with a friend and stumbled upon two lovely designers from Timeless Couture. I actually began to feel excited while talking to them about my ideas. Like it was meant to be.
I loved the idea of having a dress that was the 1950’s full skirt that I loved, but with something extra. The idea of being able to have a train which I could then put up later on really appealed to me.… View the full post.
Rosie and Ben married in September 2012 in the South of France near Thermes Magnoac.
She wore a simple yet detailed gown and he opted for traditional tails. The sun shone down as the guests listened to what has to be the coolest looking band ever…
The Time Traveler’s Wife
Rosie The Bride: I loved the wedding dress in The Time Traveler’s Wife, so I gasped when I tried my Lea-Ann Belter dress on. Although the one in the film may have had more layers I was thrilled with my dress.
Pearls And Roses
I found it really difficult to find a hairband that wasn’t covered in diamantes. I wanted something softer, more gentle to match my dress. I ended up having one bespokely made with pearls and small roses. I also wore my Grandma’s antique watch.
I bought some nude wedges from Russell and Bromley. Having an outdoor wedding I thought wedges would be the sensible option to avoid any sinking in the grass. They are the most comfortable heels I have ever worn! I didn’t even have to change out of them on the evening.
The aim for my hair was to have gentle cascading waves but I seemed to end up super curly. As the day went on it dropped some which looked lovely and almost like two different looks!
Choosing my flowers was more of a pointing exercise as my flower choosing French is not the best! My florist did a great job with the bouques and table centres and needed no instruction.… View the full post.
