Well, this destination wedding planner definitely pulled out all the stops and did an amazing job for this stunning romantic black-tie celebration. In an old building perched on the hillside of the village the bride grew up, candles littered the venue with reds and golds creating an incredibly warm and cosy atmosphere enhanced by the seasonal tones of nature. And up the ancient staircase, the drip wedding cake took centre-stage where it was surrounded by an array of candles. The bride chose an applique detailed Dimitrius Dalia wedding dress while her groom looked dapper in a classic black tuxedo wedding suit with a horseshoe waistcoat as they said their vows in front of their nearest and dearest.
The capture of real groom Eliot collapsing to his knees as he sees his bride Purity walking down the aisle at their Devonshire Terrace wedding is priceless. Nataly J Photography you are a genius behind the lens. We love all their couples portraits at St Dunstans in the East too. Not only are they incredibly beautiful, but they are seriously stylish too. Trust us, you won’t be able to stop yourself from being filled with joy as you pore over their incredible city wedding. Just wait until you see the rooftop reception with drapes, foliage and ghost chairs. Wow.
If you’ve chosen to have a church wedding, you will not be short of readings. The Bible has a lot to say about love. So much so, in fact, that it was quite the emotional task to whittle it down to our absolute favourite Bible wedding readings. We’ve shared some known favourites and found some hidden gems as well. The first section is full of verses that would be beautiful wedding readings and the second half of the post focuses more on small verses that would be perfect either read aloud, embedded in your wedding stationery or dotted around your venue. However you choose to use these verses, it’s a wonderful way to pepper your wedding day with words that have deep meaning.
A truly stunning ceremony in a walled Italian city where the bride wore a beautiful Justin Alexander wedding dress. The wedding kicked off with the couple saying their vows in front of their close friends and family at Palazzo dei Priori, where guests were surrounded by history and art, followed by an intimate celebration and dinner at the extremely picturesque Tenuta Mocajo deep in the Tuscan countryside with beautiful views and scenery. The decor was kept simple, with white flowers, foliage table runners down the banquet tables and candles, letting the venue and scenery speak for itself. Bellisimo!
A gorgeous boho, industrial vibe for this Brooklyn elopement. This couple got married at an open art installation at a park overlooking the East River and the NYC skyline! They had their day the way they wanted it without compromising and had their closest family and friends present to witness. The bride looked amazing in her dress from BHLDN teamed with a pair of motorcycle boots and the groom kept it casual wearing white sneakers, perfect for this rock and roll couple and really embodies who they are. Every part of this day was truly personal including the epic cake dinosaur cake topper, yes that’s right, dinosaur!! This city celebration is all captured beautifully by Anais Possamai.
You lot are so good at telling us exactly what you need to make your wedding planning life easier. When we asked you if you’re considering a gift list, we had great feedback from not only those who were in the ‘hell yeah’ camp, but also from those who were on the fence. We are and have always been of the opinion that wedding gift lists are a fantastic tool for couples. If you asked anyone in our office if they’d have a gift list, you’d get a resounding YES! In fact, some of us (me then) who get to compile these features spend far too long looking at products wishing they could add them to a gift list (Le Creuset Calm Collection I’m looking at you).
But as you’ll find out from the myths we’ve busted below, there are a lot of misconceptions about gift lists. No, it’s not rude to point your guests to things you would actually like. And no, you don’t have to just choose crockery. But we’ll deep dive below to give you all the clarity you need to make your own decision.
Make sure you read to the bottom. We’ve tackled every single wedding gift list myth we’ve come across so chances are, your question is answered below.
