Happy Friday everyone, I am SO happy it’s Friday as I go on Holiday on...
Well hello Thursday! have I got a jam packed blog for you today. This afternoon I will be sharing a competition with you that you won’t want to miss, so pop back then for more details. This morning I have this gorgeous and totally jaw dropping wedding from Maria Rão. It’s the super stylish wedding of Teresa and Gabriel, who were married in Marrakesh in Morroco in April of this year. The whole wedding looks spectacular. The Ceremony was held in the olive groves, so has a natural, soft look, with some gorgeous flowers. They then moved to the sunset roof bar for their cocktail hour, where they were entertained by traditional Moroccan musicians and acrobats. The reception, for me, is the most striking with the amazing table arrangements, abundance of flowers and many, many candles. The whole day looks stunning, I’m sure you will agree.
Teresa and Gabriel were married on 6th April 2019 at Villa Taj Marrakech in Marrakesh, Morocco. ‘Gabriel grew up in Morocco and still has family in Casablanca. Marrakech was a great halfway point between our family in the USA and our home in Dubai. The desert landscape reminded us of our love of the Dubai dunes, while the Atlas Mountains provided the perfect backdrop to highlight our love for the great outdoors. We had 75 guests and we planned the wedding in just under 5 months.’
If you are currently looking for a wedding gift, either for your fiancé or for a couple’s wedding you may be attending this year or next, then today is your lucky day as I have a super personal and gift idea for you. May I introduce you to Mapiful, an online company who can take any location around the world and turn it into a beautifully presented map. These maps can also be personalised with a speical date, name, or a line of writing, making it the ideal gift for any couple getting married. These beautiful maps can also be used as a signature guest book, or as part of the seating plan. Perfect for a travel loving couple, or a travel themed wedding.
Today’s wedding sees us head across to Nottingham for this ‘Festival Feel’ Woodland wedding that is filled with amazing decoration, gorgeous blooms and the sweetest couple. Lydia and Seth managed to plan a wedding for 150 people in 6 months, pretty good going i’m sure you will agree! They wanted a laid back day, at a location they cold really put their stamp on and this they found in the local Scout field. The whole day was helped along by utilising lots of their good friends’ talents, including the catering, cake, wedding ceremony and decorations. The whole day is full of colour, garden games, fantastic blooms and lots of smiley happy people. The day was captured beautifully by Vicki Clayson Photography.
Lydia and Seth were married on 1st September 2018 at Tollerton Scout Field in Nottingham. ‘We knew we wanted a venue that was ‘us’ somewhere we could put our own stamp on things – relaxed, informal and a bit wild. We looked at a handful of ‘proper’ venues but none of them felt quite right then Seth suggested we have a look at the old scout field in the village where he grew up. It was perfect – a blank canvas, a field with a small wood behind it. The fact it was part of Seth’s childhood made it feel even more special. We had 150 day guests plus quite a few more in the evening (we lost count slightly as I thing we ended up inviting half the village!.) It took 6 months to plan, we got engaged in March and got married in September.’
I have something a little different for you today with this super fun wedding of two halves. Tess and Sean were married on 11th April 2019 in Santa Fe. Their rustic outdoor wedding takes place in the backyard of an Airbnb, with their gorgeous pet Corgi. The intimate ceremony sees them celebrate with close friends and family, all before we are transported to the most amazing wedding reception venue I have seen for a long time. Meow Wolf, their second, venue is an arts space and interactive instillation full of the most amazing sculptures, lights, paintings and 3D art. Tess and Sean were lucky enough to hold their reception here and the results are astonishing. The variety of portrait shots are fantastic, so many hidden areas, secret rooms and amazing lighting. Big thanks to Rachel Veltri Photography for being there to capture the day for us, what a fantastic experience.
Hello you lovely lot and welcome to Monday! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and managed to do something, exciting, relaxing or fun? My weekend was spent at out local village carnival on Saturday and then Sunday at Dexter’s best friends birthday party. We have a wonderful selection of weddings to share with you this week, starting off with this colour filled Fiesta wedding from Babb Photo. Keira and Jake wanted a wedding that showed their personality, as well as their love of California, so mixed in the English countryside with a Californian Mexican theme, adding in lots of colour, glitter and bright patterns as well as keeping the wedding as Eco friendly as possible. This wedding oozes fun, from the flamingo hook a duck to the taco truck as well as the vibrant decor, it all looks amazing!
Keira and Jake were married on 25th May 2018 at Two Woods in Sussex. ‘We had Two Woods booked as our venue by the new year as we knew that with Jake’s roots there it had to be Sussex. And just seeing two woods you don’t need to ask why there. It’s just stunning. We always knew that we had to get married outdoors and all other venues in Sussex just didn’t light a fire inside us. As soon as I clicked on two woods I cried and we knew that after Jake proposed to me in the forests of California we had to get married in the only redwood in the UK.’
