Shooting a wedding on film ALWAYS creates a beautiful, dream-like quality to the images. Weddings shot on film by Peachey Photography? Well they are EXTRA special.
Dickie is Scottish and works in advertising. Annie wore a 50s style gown. The couple married at Annie’s parents house in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside. So naturally, the theme was Scotland meets Mad Men meets English Country Fete. It worked a treat too.
Annie’s parents genuinely put their hearts and souls into preparing the garden for their daughters wedding – they had the garden landscaped, grew flowers from seed and even built the summerhouse where the ceremony was held! They did an excellent job, I’m sure you’ll agree.
And if you’ve just come along for a gander at a man in a kilt – you’re in for a treat. Dickie is sporting some very fetching Douglas tartan.
We’re starting the week with a wedding EXTRAVAGANZA. Seriously – I’ve never seen anything like it.
Yes, the gorgeous wedding elements are there…Alexis has a swirly to-die-for Jenny Packham gown, a dreamy bouquet filled with pink roses and green foliage, and there’s the obligatory London wedding transport – a big red wedding bus.
But that wasn’t enough for theatrical pair Alexis & Nathan, OH NO.
They’ve taken weddings to a whole new level.
There are also magician acts, live bands, sparklers, performance artists, hula hoops AND a flash mob first dance. You have to see it to believe it. But it looks like SUCH FUN.
Alexis & Nathan – all I can say is that you guys really know how to put on a show.
Kirsty and Tom’s village hall wedding is absolutely brimming with gorgeous vintage and handmade details, and there’s not a scrap of bunting in sight.
I’m particularly loving the table plan, which was created with an old door and some glass paint.
The flowers in soft pastel tones are also exquisite – the lovely couple are lucky enough to have a whizz florist as a friend.
These colours were reflected in the outfits for the wedding party, with the Bridesmaids looking fresh and pretty in dresses from the high street, and the boys totally nailing their self-proclaimed ‘English Country Gangster’ look.
The whole wedding was a proper family affair too, with Kirsty’s Mum and Dad helping to either grow, collect or make most of the decor.
I’m feeling more than a little smug this morning because I get to share possibly the best two-day-English-Indian wedding I have EVER seen. That’s right folks, Lyndsey and Kayyor were lucky enough not to have one but TWO big days!
They started their wedding extravaganza with a smaller, intimate traditional English infused civil ceremony at the Olde Bell in Hurley. Filled to the brim with soft pink roses and silver candelabras and a beautiful 1920s drop waist dress, it couldn’t have been more different to their second ‘I Do’ the following day at Hedsor House.
This time, against a back-drop of freshly fallen snow, the two participated in a traditional Hindu ceremony that just oozes colour and energy and excitement. Saris and a Bollywood theme were the order of the day with guests in traditional Indian dress against lavish decor.
Just wait until you see the beautiful flowers on the Mandap. I died and went to heaven. Actually I died over pretty much every single detail of Kayyor and Lyndsey’s two day affair. It looks flipping epic!
I always feel a flutter of excitement whenever I share a wedding that has taken place at Iscoyd Park. Perhaps it’s because it’s where I married my boy so it will always have a very special place in my heart or maybe it’s because it’s just such a beautiful, harmonious, tranquil place and this vibe is embodied in all of the big days that take place there.
Regardless Ross and Jennie’s ‘Country Garden’ themed do is no exception. For starters I’m liking Jennie’s Charlie Brear dress very much indeed – the most perfectly flattering frock for her baby bump. Yep Jennie is radiant as both a blushing bride and a mummy to be too!
Secondly I am in awe of Jennie’s make-up application skills… radiant skin, cat flick eyes and pinky pout a-plenty here!
And then there’s Billy – the most dashing Page Boy I think these pages have seen. I think you’ll agree folks that his outfit is EPIC.
Come on let’s go and partake in a cream tea or two and be serenaded on the lawn…
Today’s wedding is all about embracing the season.
What better for a New Years Eve wedding than a candle lit ceremony, Bridesmaids in faux fur jackets, vintage roses in metallic vases and an exclusive Dublin townhouse from which to watch the fireworks at midnight?
There was only really one gown fit for the occasion…
And that of course, was Eden by Jenny Packham. The ultimate in glamorous wedding gowns.
Probably THE dress of 2013. But rightly so – it really is eternally beautiful.
I am well and truly embracing the festivities now, have a lovely Christmas everyone!
Venues That Speak For Themselves
Emma The Bride: We wanted a local, intimate, city wedding. With no fuss. It was also important that the venues had the wow factor. This meant they spoke for themselves and required very little dressing/styling.
Our civil ceremony was in City Hall on Dame St. Once we knew it was an option there simply was no other contender. City Hall is a stunning historical building in the city centre of Dublin.
The reception was in The Cliff Town House on St. Stephens Green. The Cliff Town House is a short stroll across Grafton St. from City Hall. It overlooks Stephens Green and has fabulous views of the park. The interior is gorgeous. It was the perfect size for our wedding (86 people) and it is known for it’s top notch food and wine.
We had the whole house for the wedding, the drinks reception took place upstairs, the meal was in the restaurant on the ground floor and the party was upstairs again.… View the full post.
