Jamie and Jonathan’s Relaxed Outdoor Forest Wedding in Wintry California by Teri Bocko 

Happy Friday everyone, I am SO happy it’s Friday as I go on Holiday on Monday! I am SO excited! I will be working all weekend getting all of next week’s posts written up and ready for you, but then Sunday afternoon it’s time to pack as we leave at 4am on monday morning (ouch!) We are off to Ibiza, it’s Nik’s birthday on the Sunday while we are there and it’s our 10 year wedding anniversary on the same day. We actually got married twice as we had to have the legal ceremony in the UK before our Ibiza wedding, so this year we are celebrating both of them. I cannot wait to see Ibiza again and show Dexter the island.
On with today’s wedding and it’s a real beauty, courtesy of Teri Bocko. Jamie and Jonathan chose 1909 as they wanted an outdoor forest feel for their intimate Winter wedding. Jamie is in events so she found it no trouble at all planning for her big day and I’m sure you will agree she did an amazing job. The soft tones and beautiful flowers are just so romantic, yet with a rustic edge. A gorgeous day from start to finish, I’m sure you will agree.

The day was so relaxed – it felt like the most natural thing in the world to be getting married in a forest with our friends and family. We like good food, good drink, and great company, and the wedding was everything we hoped it would be.  

Jamie and Jonathan  were married on 29th December 2018 at The 1909, Topanga in California. ‘We knew we wanted an outdoor wedding, some place where we could feel like we had the whole area to ourselves. We saw the 1909 and knew it was perfect – we could be married under a big oak tree, have dinner in a meadow, and dance the night away in a building reminiscent of a tree house, built into the side of a hill. We had 70 guests and it took 6 months to plan, although in reality I only planned for about 4 months of that!’

Jade and Noel’s Butterfly Themed Hot Summer Norfolk Barn Wedding by Luis Holden Photography

Today’s wedding is a sun filled hot hot hot summer wedding that took place last year in Norfolk. It’s so lovely to look back on weddings from last year and remember the amazing summer we had, and the photos of Jade and Noel’s fabulous day bring the memories flooding back. This laid-back travel loving couple held a relaxed day, where so many of their friends and family pitched in to help. From the flowers to the food, decor to the ceremony, so many people had a part to play in bringing this wedding together. The couple had a butterfly theme and showed their love of travel through their details and decoration. A truly amazing day, with some beautiful photography from Luis Holden Photography.

Under a deep blue canvas of a sky with the sun perched high, the day bathed in an abundance of love and laughter destined to last a lifetime.  The walk, the declaration, the speech, the telling look in the eyes and the first dance, all put into sharp focus of what matters most – the one you love.

Jade and Noel were married on 25th July 2018 at Chaucer Barn in Gresham, Norfolk. ‘Jade and I met just a few miles down the road from Chaucer Barn, and a North Norfolk wedding was important to us because it is where our relationship begun. Having spent many years travelling in South East Asia and Spain, coming ‘home’ to get married felt like a natural choice. Chaucer Barn was the first wedding venue we viewed; our eyes were opened to the magic this truly beautiful place beheld. Every detail had clearly been thought about, and although Chaucer Barn is described as a ‘blank canvas,’ the easel it is held up by is mesmerising. The choice was easy to make and meeting the amazing and attentive staff cemented our choice. We had 79 guests ad it took a year to plan.’
