Trinity Buoy Wharf weddings really are the best. It’s such an incredible blank canvas, with every wedding we feature from there so different. Plus it’s right on the Thames with beautiful views of the city and enough exposed brick and quirky details to keep every industrial loving bride truly happy. Paula and Geoff almost didn’t get married here, as you’ll read in the wedding report, but we’re glad they did, and I think they are too!
They enlisted the help of one of our all time favourite wedding planners, Liz Linkleter to help them and the results of their ideas with Liz’s vision and organisational skills are just gorgeous. The natural, relaxed images come from My Beautiful Bride and just capture every last detail and emotion to perfection. Enjoy this one my loves, it’s not only a feast for the eyes, but Paula and Geoff’s obvious love for one another just warms the soul too.
If you’re having a marquee wedding and are worried about how to make it look beautiful inside – then please take your lead from Becky and Sam. This clever pair opted for a marquee with clear sides, a gorgeous draped ceiling and added lots of hanging lanterns, making the space feel like an extension of the house, rather than a tent. The festoon lights providing a ‘ceiling’ to their outdoor seating area, again creating a space that felt purposeful, rather than accidental.
A wonderful marquee wasn’t Becky and Sam’s only excellent decision, this is clearly a couple with great taste, as every detail of their wedding day is elegant and cohesive. Celebrating their coastal location in Jersey and it’s affinity to France, everything is light and breezy. You can almost smell the lavender 😉
Images come from the wonderful team at Wedding_M, whose work it’s always a real pleasure to share. Look out for the incredible shots of Becky and Sam whizzing off into the sunset…and the gorgeous couple shots on the beach too!
Our gorgeous bride today wears not one, but two beautiful gowns from Phase Eight, but being a wedding dress designer for the brand I could imagine she wanted to wear them all. I know I would have! The low back & beaded bodice of her ceremony gown is exquisite and the multi straps on her evening gown is the perfect detail to get the party started.
The location for all this style is the beautiful Chateau Riguard in Bordeaux, France which has the perfect mix of elegance and rustic charm with it’s greenery and candle light decor. I love that groom Phil stays true to his origins too, opting for a tartan kilt in his clans cloth.
Bringing all this sentiment and fashion alive is Real Simple Photography, so sit back relax and enjoy all this destination wedding has to offer
