This Spanish destination wedding has my heart racing. Styled to perfection by Paloma Cruz Eventos and captured by Serafin Castillo, it has one of the most beautiful outdoor receptions I have even seen with hundreds of twinkling fairy lights creating what I bet was a truly magical ambience.
Also pretty epic is the IX century Santa Barbara’s Castle where Victoria & Iain held there ceremony. Think rustic ruins enhanced with a truly elegant white floral arch and aisle flowers.
Gorgeous Bride Tanja is a super talented creative lady, who runs her own brush lettering studio, Frau Hölle Studio. So naturally, she did all of the stationery for her big day. The whole thing is just truly beautiful – the couple opted for an apricot and pastel colour scheme, which contrasted perfectly with the dark interiors of their rustic barn venue and included pretty paper wheels and lots of balloons.
Tanja is clearly a true romantic at heart, as she bought Andreas a pair of Micky Mouse slippers as a wedding present, to match her Minnie Mouse ones – super cute. AND she made a speech to declare her love and joy at getting married to him. Enjoy this one lovelies, it’s full of gorgeous pastel details, delicious looking sweet treats, lots of smiles and one VERY pretty dress.
This morning it’s all about a quiet, intimate elopement to the bustling city of Barcelona. Sounds like a complete juxtaposition, and it is, but somehow Claudia Rose Carter has managed to make it look like Courtney and Jon are the only people in the whole city.
In amongst the big weddings, the DIY frenzy weddings and the chic, elegant weddings, sometimes it’s lovely to share one like this. Of course they are all celebrations of love, but for some people, choosing to do it quietly suits them better.
Laura & Will’s intimate French chateau wedding has stolen my heart for many, many reasons. First off, the couple had to overcome their original venue cancelling their booking and rearrange the wedding at a totally different place (although given how stunning Domaine de Ribaute is – we think this was entirely fortuitous – if a little stressful). Then, their celebrant didn’t turn up on their wedding day, meaning that one of their friends had to step up and read the entire ceremony from an iPad (again, this turned out for the better, their ceremony looks truly intimate and heartfelt).
Secondly it looks beautiful – elegant but rustic decor, simple branding throughout and the most gorgeous aisle lined with petals. For me, it’s exactly what a destination wedding should look like – the venue, location, and that incredible light do all the talking.
And thirdly – the photography is just dreamy. I think everyone getting married in France should book Susie Lawrence as their photographer. It’s raw, it’s candid, it’s honest and it’s beautiful. If I were Laura & Will, I’d have ALL of the images printed and framed, adorning the walls of my house and I’d stare at them all day long.
It’s a gorgeous wedding lovely ones and it’s such a pleasure to share it with you all this morning…
Super hot Bridal party alert!!! How stunning do all of the ladies look? Bride Abi’s ‘Petra’ Vera Wang gown with it’s blush bow is just perfection and it’s lovely to see Bridesmaids looking chic – that one-shouldered fuchsia pink dress with the ruffle detail is gorge and each lady looks lovely! And the excellent sartorial choices don’t end there – the boys look rather dapper too. We always love navy suits and Andy’s addition of a polka dot tie and a sharp Lanvin tie clip completely makes the outfit. AND there are some adorable little ones dressed in Monsoon’s finest – such cuties.
Decor wise, Abi decided that she didn’t want to over-do it and so chose just to focus on fresh flowers, with a really pretty flower motif stationery suite – the whole look is bright, colourful, fresh and not at all over styled, which Abi really wanted to avoid. It’s a beautiful wedding, filled with beautiful happy people! Enjoy lovely ones.
The styling in this afternoon’s sunshine filled at-home wedding is so unique, I love the glamorous, opulent feel to the dining tables and the blooms are just fabulous – huge displays full of colour and texture…I’m not surprised they took Bride Jessica’s breath away! They did the same for me too. Jessica also mentions that her Mum thought the cake looked like something from Pinterest…well I can guarantee that after this post goes live it will be a bona-fide Pinterest cake in it’s own right. It’s an absolute stunner.
Jessica herself also looks stunning in Memoir by Suzanne Neville, whose tailoring as always is spot on – Jessica looks the epitome of elegance and the ever so subtle touch of Sports Luxe about the dress is just super stylish too. There’s also a cracking bar (unsurprising as the couple run a bar together) with delicious looking cocktails, and last but by no means least, the fabulous photography from the lovely Claire Penn and wedding film from Papertwin which capture the essence of the day perfectly – fun, relaxed but ever so stylish.
Josefina & Ali’s big day is one of those weddings I’d love to have attended. There’s something about a big raucous house party that lends itself perfectly to a post-wedding-ceremony shindig. Once the formalities are out of the way, it’s really just time to let your hair down, and I think it’s safe to say everyone at J&A’s wedding did just that. The whole affair just looks so glamorous, stylish and most importantly, fun!
We love the addition of a blush pink silk ribbon to Josefina’s dress and her turquoise earrings add a gorgeous pop of colour that keeps things a little bit bohemian. The couple are clearly very creative and that shines through in every aspect of their big day. Enjoy the glamour lovely ones.
Holly and Charlie’s big day just has such a lovely vibe, looking through the images really did make me smile. I think it’s because it has a perfect balance of fun, family and love, the whole day was bathed in golden sunlight and everyone just looks so happy.
I loved reading Holly’s write up too, she’s got a very dry sense of humour and it made me laugh. All in all, it’s just a lovely feel good wedding for the middle of the week – I hope you enjoy it too.
You know when the Autumnal sunshine is all lovely and low and casts that perfect warm light? that. The portraits of Emma and James at sunset are stunning.
I love how the couple didn’t have a theme as such but kept their styling cohesive with a classic typrwriter font throughout their paper goods and a palette of soft pastel hues. I should also mention Emma’s undone bun, one of my all time favourite bridal hair styles, easy breezy and so very elegant.
Aren’t we having a beautiful first week back in 2016…..I can feel a lot of pinning action occurring.
