Giulia & Fraser

We often hear from brides and grooms how they massively underestimate the wedding ceremony, and the same goes for Giulia & Fraser. Although they put a lot of effort into writing their vows to one another, they didn’t expect it to be their favourite part of the day. You can see from the gorgeous captures by Maryanne Weddings how incredibly heartfelt it was. Plus the location is to die for!

Never before has there been a ceremony in the cloister of the Abbazia Montelabate monastery, but I bet people will be falling over themselves to say I do there now. The ancient well made the perfect altar, and I love the draped greenery garland framing it beautifully.

The celebrations continued in a Castello Ramazzao castle, and to honour groom Frasers heritage a fabulous Ceilidh was danced by all.

As far as weddings go this couple certainly ticked all the boxes, and some! Enjoy.

A Little Piece Of Scotland In The Cotswolds.

Cover-Image

Good morning you gorgeous lot! By jove, have we got some pretty for you this morning in the form of Hannah and Shaun’s big day courtesy of David Jenkins Photography. Actually scrap that, this wedding isn’t just pretty…it’s a BEAUTY.

There are hot maids in off the shoulder neutral dresses (off the shoulder is having such a moment right now and I for one LOVE it!), decadent bouquets filled with creamy peonies and plenty of dapper men in Kilts for the Scottish ladies out there! In fact there are three generations of men in the ‘Malcolm’ tartan if we’re going to be specific about it – I for one am very impressed.

Oh and there’s the delicious illustrated menus, the AMAZING cakes and the sassy group shots. I promise you that you’ll love it all!

Pale and Oh So Interesting… Part 2

Hooray!!!

It’s Part 2 and a total detail-fest, never mind being the prettiest modern wedding I’ve seen in a long time. If you haven’t got time to read it properly now, make sure you come back later with a coffee or a glass of wine and just drink it all in. All images by Lillian and Leonard.

So Beautiful.

Fresh From the Garden

We wanted the flowers to look like someone had just been out and picked them all (a bit messy). We didn’t really have a colour scheme so there were pink, purple, blue, yellow – pretty much everything. Margaret Soudan did the flowers and she was amazing. We were not sure we had described what we wanted very well but somehow she got it absolutely perfect!

Photography beyond words…

Lillian and Leonard (Cara and Nye) were our photographers. I have no words to describe how amazing they were. Their photos are the most perfect reminder of the day and everyone who has seen them has commented on how fantastic they are.

Cake of all kinds…

I am totally addicted to cheese and so I wanted one cake to be a cheese cake. This was basically 4 wheels of cheese on top of each other and came from the Bath Fine Cheese Company. And yes, they delivered it all the way to Scotland. I ended up having 4 pieces of incredibly posh cheese on toast at the end of the night.

My sister, Sarah Kelt, made the sweet cake. It was a top tier of fruit cake and three lower tiers of individual sponges, iced in white and decorated with small white icing flowers. She made it at the venue on the Thursday before the wedding, it was stunning and delicious – what more could you want!

A Unique Space

To be honest, Crear is pretty visually stunning anyway, and the view is probably decoration enough. As below we used some of the favours to decorate the tables and people then took them away at the end of the evening, we also had some lovely “Hearts and Ribbon” bunting also from Cox and Cox. Aside from that it was just flowers.

We made the seating plan ourselves (the night before the wedding). We bought Harebell paper, pearl headed pins and a board from Hobbycraft. Names were written on small pieces of the paper and then pinned on to the board. The beauty of it was that we could move people around as we were working it out and we could make last minute adjustments for anyone who couldn’t come.

For favours we had Cox and Cox heart shaped candles, wedding matches and small slate name plates. We also bought glassine bags and put in two heart shaped chocolates. These were then machined closed with a zigzag stitch, together with a card with our names and the date.

Ceilidh dancing

We had Archie McAllister and band. They did a caleigh for a couple of hours and then played some more modern music for the remainder of the night. They were fabulous (although I think they got a bit frustrated at times due to everyone’s complete inability to follow the dance instructions).

The song was “They can’t take that away from me” sung by Frank Sinatra. I would like to say we had a romantic reason for choosing it, but it was actually because we were learning how to dance (with The First Dance Company) and the track was very short! We were really nervous so knowing we only had to be out there for a couple of minutes was somehow reassuring!

Advice from a Bride

Our wedding was special because it was ours! I could not have wished for a more perfect day. As with all occasions, the company was what counted. Everyone we wanted to be there made it (including my 89 year old Grandad), and as far as I know everyone had a wonderful time.

Arjen and I were really flexible about how the day would be, as long as we were both there and had our friends and family around us we were not really that bothered about the rest. I think if you are too fixed in terms of what you want you risk disappointment whereas if you are open to ideas you may find things that you had never really thought about that end up being your ‘best bits’.

For us though I think the venue was really what made the day, we actually stayed there with our wedding party for 3 days prior to the wedding, this made the whole experience feel much more of an ‘event’ than just a day. I couldn’t believe it when we had to leave as it had begun to feel like home (although slightly larger and with more spectacular views than our actual home!)

If it was possible I would suggest you hire my mum – she was incredible, especially with all the little details that I probably wouldn’t have thought of.

I would also say, remember that your friends and family are (generally) adults and therefore capable of sorting themselves out – don’t feel you have to sort out everyone’s travel accommodation etc, remind them of the existence of Google.

Most of all though, take it in. The day will go past so quickly and there are so many different things going on, try to stand still every so often and take a mental picture. It was the most amazing experience of my life and I wouldn’t change a minute of it.

And Sigh.

I might just cry now this is over, truly.

Thank you so much to Cara at Lillian and Leonard for making this so easy to post and so enjoyable! And thank you to Naomi and Arjen for their oodles of inspiration!

Yours Truly,

Rebecca
xoxo
