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…
Jodie and Donnie’s super luxe black tie affair in Yorkshire is the perfect soiree on which to end my real wedding adventures of 2013; yep folks this will be the last wedding I’ll be blogging this year though you can bet your bottom dollar we’ve got some corkers for you coming up next year.
And it is luxe; filled to the brim with beautiful details and exquisite tailoring which isn’t surprising given that Jodie is the editor of MR PORTER – a men’s style site that oozes sophistication for the savvy men in your life and Donnie is a session guitarist with the twinkliest eyes I ever did see.
They married in Jodie’s childhood back garden near the moors in Northern Yorkshire under a huge oak tree. I know, I almost died from delight when I first saw the photos…but wait it gets better.
Jodie was lucky enough to have a pair of gorgeous dusty pink organza floral sandals by Italian shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti specially made for her when they’d sold out EVERYWHERE. Not only that but she also wore a custom veil to match her golden hued dress; how special is that!
I also adore the escort card Dinky car idea that Jodie created and the fact that they had a passage from Wuthering Heights read out during their ceremony – possibly one of my favourite books ever.
Oh and then there’s the escapade involving Jodie’s dad, a shotgun and a balloon.
Love On The Moors
Jodie The Bride: Like most little girls who have spent an incomprehensible amount of time imagining their wedding day, I had always had a particular setting in mind.… View the full post.
Jemma and Ollie married at Larmer Tree Gardens in Dorset this summer. Their wedding was all about the personal touches from twinkling fairy lights to imports from Thailand. There are vintage roses, peonies, birdcages, a killer Vivienne Westwood suit and games.
So sit back and feast your eyes on the gorgeous images below captured by Lucy Davenport.
Oh, and please can more brides hold their dresses up? You can never see too much shoe. Ever.
For my hair, I wanted a simple vintage look to show off the detail on the back of the dress. I bought Some hydrangeas for my hair from Etsy and finished my look off with a vintage brooch cuff, also from Etsy and some simple vintage droplet earrings from Beautiful Bridal Boutique.
My flowers were from Ena’s Florists and were a mix of soft Bombastic vintage roses, Sandblast, Amnesia roses and Peonies.
Brogues And Button Holes
The Groomsmen wore burgundy and cream polka dot Vintage bow ties by Peckham Rye. Ollie wore a Vivienne Westwood suit from John Anthony clothing, teamed with Crockett and Jones tan brogues, a Vivienne Westwood shirt, braces from Mr Porter and a vintage amnesia rose button hole.
