Love Is A Rose.

When Ant and Vicky started searching for their venue for their wedding in July earlier this year they had three specifications.

Firstly that the venue ooze a laid-back atmosphere.

Secondly that it convey a ‘country feel’ for their guests.

And lastly, that it be on a farm or in a barn.

When they finally found Upwaltham Barns, they immediately fell in love and didn’t look back.

And lovelies, when you see this delicious array of images below, all captured by the wonderful Ed Peers, you’ll completely understand why.

We have a bride swathed in cappuccino coloured lace, a dapper groom complete with pipe, clouds of gyp and an adorable breakdancing youngster.

What’s not to love?

Cappuccino Lace

I’ve never been a really girly girl and originally was determined not to be a bride who spent huge amounts on a dress. I bought one online and when it arrived it was beautiful, but I never really felt comfortable in it and it didn’t make my mum cry (she cries at everything).

I reluctantly booked a few appointments at wedding dress shops and stumbled upon the gem that is Bridal Rogue Gallery in central London. The minute I walked in they made me feel comfortable and it was much more fun than I expected.

I had always liked lace and when I tried on their ‘Simone’ dress in cappuccino I loved it. Return trips with more bridesmaids and a suitably teary mum confirmed my choice and I joined the legions of brides who overspent on the dress, but didn’t regret it for a second.… View the full post.

Love At Lake Ohau.

We have a delicious destination wedding for you today peeps… And destinations don’t come much more delicious than Lake Ohau in New Zealand!

The spectacular Lake Ohau Lodge is basically in the middle of nowhere – 2 hours north of Queenstown. For a secluded and intimate celebration I can think of nowhere finer as I sit here in gloomy Birmingham!

Just by chance, super talented photographer Helen Cawte was honeymooning in Queenstown and took time out to take this amazing set of images.

Nina and Josh are our newly weds of the day and Nina is here with all the delicious destination detail.

Simple Vintage Taste

I expected finding a dress to be a lot more difficult living in the middle of nowhere. I flew to Auckland for a day to find something with my mum and sister and was lucky enough to find something in the first shop I went into!

My dress was designed by Sera Lilly who is based in Ponsonby. I didnt want a traditional wedding dress and Sera helped me to find something that suited my simple vintage taste.

Something Borrowed

As the lace of my dress was quite detailed I didn’t think I would need to accessorise much. My auntie lent me a set of beautiful pearl bracelets and another auntie some pearl earrings, which were perfect together and looked great with the dress.

Tried And Tested

I had worn my shoes as a bridesmaid to my bridesmaids wedding a year earlier and loved them to bits so decided to have them as my wedding shoes.View the full post.

Big City Love.

Joanna and Dave we married over the Easter weekend earlier this year. Dave is from Southend on Sea and Joanna is from New Zealand and they both now live in London. Their ceremony was at the beautiful 1920s building that is Islington Town Hall. The guests were then whisked away to a reception at The Londesborough in Stoke Newington in a classic Routemaster bus.

Aparently there was a substantial amount of New Zealand bubbly on board to get everyone in the party spirit.

Show A Bit Of Ankle

My dress came from the lovely ladies at Morgan Davies in Islington. It was important to me to have a dress by a British designer and I was delighted when I found ‘Heaven’ by Blue Bridal. When I tried it on, the pure silk fabric felt so luxurious and it fitted perfectly. I’d wanted a 1950s style dress from the start and was pretty sure that I wanted a ‘tea length’ dress. Being on the shorter side I thought it might be an idea to show off a bit of ankle! It’s such a buzz to twirl a full skirt with petticoats!

Perfect Sentiment

One of the most special pieces of jewellery was a silver filigree bracelet belonging to my late mum. My dad brought it over from New Zealand for me and it was a great feeling knowing I had a part of her with me. I’d been on the lookout for earrings for months, so I was delighted when I saw a beautiful pair that matched my engagement ring in a shop in Courmeyer, Italy.View the full post.
