Today I would like to introduce you to one of the best ideas I have...
Happy Friday everyone, how are you all? I am so excited for the weekend as tomorrow the Christmas celebrations officially begin. We are off to the cinema tomorrow to watch the Grinch and then on Sunday it’s the Christmas lights switch on in Sheffield city centre! SO excited for Christmas!! Today though, I am brining you some sunshine filled elopement inspiration from beautiful Portugal. Muza Weddings Concept came up with the idea for this shoot, as they wanted to show how elopement and intimate weddings can be just as beautiful as large-scale celebrations. The shoot took place in October of last year at Sublime Comporta in Portugal as they wanted to show off this beautiful venue. They drew inspiration from Morocco and filled it with gorgeous flowers and amazing Moroccan inspired decoration.
This afternoon I have some gorgeous bridal style for you courtesy of CoCo Melody. CoCoMelody were on the blog back in August sharing with us their advice on choosing your wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses. Today I am delighted to welcome them back to share with us their stunning new collection for 2019. However, this is all rather special, as there isn’t just one collection, but three! Lily White Collection, Grace Luxury Collection, Classic Collection. Each one has its own unique CoCoMelody style, and is filled with jaw dropping gowns perfect for the style conscious bride. My personal favourite is the first black gown, so unique! I’d love to know which is your favourite.

I don’t know about you, but it’s blooming freezing here in Sheffield, Winter is definitely on its way! To warm you up I am jetting you off to sunny Spain for this super stylish, rustic chic wedding of Carlota and Jorge. Even though they chose the end of October for their wedding, the sun shone and it was a super warm and fun-filled day. They opted for an elegant day filled with lavish touches like the beautiful venue and the delicious food. The whole day was super stylish and full of so much love, all captured beautifully by Alicia Nacenta Photography.
Carlota and Jorge were married on 29th October, the ceremony was held at Otero de Herreros, a little town in Segovia (Spain) with the reception at Finca Las Margas en Madrona, little town in Segovia (Spain). ‘The church, a small hermitage in the middle of the forest was incredibly charming. The venue has beautiful views, in the middle of the field, we loved the decoration and we could stay to sleep over both of us and our families. We had 190 guests, in regards to planning we had a year in total but the big part was done in the last 5 months.’
A few months ago I set up a Facebook group for the readers for the blog. In it, lots of lovely brides and grooms share with each other their wedding planning adventures, homemade projects, swap advice and general wedding chit chat. It is also a place where couples can share their wedding photos once they are married. This is where I spotted Joanna and Charlie’s gorgeous wedding. Joanna was sharing a few of her wedding photos from Jonny MP Photography and I knew I just had to feature her fabulous wedding on the blog. Luckily Joanna agreed, so today I am delighted to be sharing her wonderful day with you all.
Joanna and Charlie were married on 23rd August 2018 at The Old Lodge, Minchinhampton in the Cotswolds. ‘I did a really serious search of the whole of the UK as we were on quite a tight budget but also wanted something quite particular and perfect for us, more rustic and relaxed than a typical wedding venue. When I stumbled across The Old Lodge, its prices seemed too good to be true. So, we quickly arranged a weekend trip to The Cotswolds. As we drove across the huge common with nothing in sight but trees, fields and cows and then spotted The Old Lodge, slap bang plonked in the middle I realised this was somewhere to be excited about. Then the accommodating nature of the wedding planner who met with us telling us if the menus weren’t what we fancied, chef would be happy to plan a menu to whatever ideas we had and as far as décor we had pretty much free rein. The icing on the cake for me was being able to get married outside in the garden for a real ‘Boho’ feel. We had approximately 60 guests, and it took 2 years to plan merely for saving purposes.’
