Deanna and Joshua’s Rose Gold Rustic Barn Wedding in Toronto by Megan Michelle

Well hello Friday! I hope you are looking forward to the weekend as much as I am! Dexter was poorly last weekend, so I am looking forward to hopefully getting out a bit more this weekend and enjoying some family time together. How has your week been? Have you been doing any wedding planning, or have you been to a wedding? I would love to know your plans.
We are finishing off the week with this lovely Toronto wedding. Deanna and Joshua chose Black Creek Pioneer Village as it gave them the freedom to hold their ceremony and reception in the same place, making life easier for their guests. They filled their day with lots of lovely rose gold accents, as well as some super sparkly sequin table runners, and an abundance of gorgeous flowers. The day has been captured perfectly by Megan Michelle 

Our wedding was a day that paid tribute to our families and friends, both present and passed away, who helped shape us as individuals and a couple. It was our way of showing appreciation to everybody who has impacted us through our journey in a way that felt organic, comfortable and joyous for us as a couple entering into a new stage of life.

Deanna and Joshua were married on 9th June 2018 at Black Creek Pioneer Village in Toronto. ‘We wanted something earthy and different, but comfortable for our guests and matching our personalities which are more laid back. Black Creek was the perfect fit – modern and up to date, yet rustic and historical. We also wanted our venue to be wheelchair and mobility accessible. Black Creek has many locations on site for the ceremony and reception, and we chose ones that were all one level (no stairs) Our guests loved wandering around the village, as did we, and it provided a comfortable and homey atmosphere. We had 110 guests and It took a full year of planning and booking vendors. It was a relaxed year though, with the bulk of the work occurring the month before the wedding.’

‘Dreaming of Love and Romance’ Fairy Tale Wedding Inspiration

I have the most romantic and totally beautiful styled shoot for you today. A whimsical look at true romance mixed with an enchanted dream world. The shoot took place in October last year at a private villa in Sounio, Greece, named ‘Villa Pasha’. The 12 Events came up with the concept of the shoot and the photos are by George Liopetas Wedding Photography. The rich colours and dreamy styling along with the floral heavy tablescape mix perfectly with the calmness of the beach scene. The whole shoot has been perfectly executed and gives any bride and groom-to-be lots of inspiration if you are looking at creating an enchanted, super romantic wedding day.

Do you believe in ‘magic’ or ‘fairy tales’? When I was a young aged kid, I always loved listening to tales or stories just before I close my eyes. This styled shoot can be described in only one sentence, in my opinion. This is ‘Dreaming the love and romance everybody dreams of, in early ages’.

Terri and Jason’s Travel Themed DIY Festival Wedding by BeMusa Photography

Happy Thursday everyone, I hope you have survived the wind and the rain! It sure has been windy up here in Sheffield! I’m sure you will remember this summer though and the glorious weather we had, a  little different from today but not too much of a distant memory! Well today’s wedding comes from this summer and shows off the amazing sunshine we had! Terri and Jason were married in an outdoor ceremony followed by a tipi reception, after eloping to New  Zealand for their original ceremony. They wanted their day to be filled with fun, laughter and all of their friends around them. This they achieved with lots of DIY elements, which helped keep the costs down and added a lovely personal element to the day. BeMusa Photography was in charge of the photography.

A summer festival vide, fun and relaxed. No pressure and just the way we wanted it for family and friends to just share with us a special day without having to travel around

Terri and Jason were married on 30th June 2018. The eloped to Queenstown, New Zeland and followed it up with a UK Wedding/Reception at North Hill Farm in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire. ‘We had seen options in Sussex where we could take over a farm for camping/glamping etc but were keen for something closer to London for older family to travel shorter distances, and for many of our guests coming from overseas being nearer airports was handy. We had around 120 guests and it took about a year to plan.

James and Meghan’s South African Safari Elopement by Megan Ann Photography

I see a lot of weddings in my job, as you can imagine, but ever so often a wedding will drop into my inbox that really takes my breath away. Today’s is one such wedding. It’s actually an elopement and it’s set in Richard Branson’s very own Private Game Reserve in South Africa. This is somewhere that is definitely on my wish list to visit! I have always wanted to go on Safari and these photos by Megan Ann Photography ,who was entrusted with the very lucky job of capturing James and Meghan’s Safari Elopement, have only made me want to go even more. What more could you wish for in a wedding backdrop! And the chance to see all those amazing animals on your wedding day, well what an experience! The whole day is totally stunning!

It was the most romantic day of our lives filled with picturesque nature and animals, relaxing spa treatments, 5-star African dining in the bush, and memories we will never forget. We were treated like absolute royalty and Ulusaba’s team surprised us left and right to make sure that our day was everything we ever wanted and more.

Meghan and James were married on 11th May 2018 at Ulusaba, which is Richard Branson’s Private Game Reserve in South Africa. ‘Since James is from England and I am from America, we knew it would put financial pressures on our family and friends to come to a wedding abroad and we didn’t want to do that. We really wanted to elope on a safari in South Africa in a beautiful part of the world, doing a fun activity and making the day as memorable and relaxed as possible which is exactly what happened. It was just the two of us at the wedidng and it took a matter of hours to plan, it couldn’t have been easier! Our venue took care of all the details so that I didn’t have to.’
