Todays wedding is a real beauty, a flower filled outdoor wedding, that I absolutely adore. Elaine and Fletcher were married in California on the 15th October 2016, they chose a beautiful setting for their outdoor ceremony, along with the most amazing outdoor reception. With a tear jerking first look, they started off their wedding day filled with emotion and so much love. The reception brings an amazing outdoor setting, filled with fabulous furniture and most beautiful blooms. It ends with the rain taking over their first dance but oh my, how this just adds to the photos, that have been captured so amazingly by Inner Song Photography. A truly beautiful day, I’m sure you will agree.

There’s no shortage of luxury on the French Riviera. You’ll get to taste world class food, award winning wines and you’ll never be too far from a yacht party. But many don’t know that this sparkling coastal destination also features some incredible walks and outdoor activities, including hiking, cycling and mountain biking. Hire a car and be sure to stop off at the isolated mountain commune of St. Paul de Vence and if you visit Villefranche-sur-Mer, don’t miss the vigorous walk around the Citadel.
In this job I get to see so many different types of weddings, to be honest not much surprises me these days. However when todays wedding landed in my in box, there was something particularly different about it that made me realise straight away I had to share it with you. What could be so different? Well todays Bride and Groom, Olivia and Mikael, flew themselves to their own wedding reception in a glider! Which is how the couple actually met, on gliding lessons. The whole day has been captured perfectly by Lizette Photographie.
Olivia and Mikael were married on the 6th August 2016 in a ceremony in Rystad Kyrka followed by a reception at Kanalmagasinet in Mem in Sweden. ‘We were looking for a cosy small place which fit in our budget and were close to the church. When we finally found Kanalmagasinet there was nothing which could be compared to the location! We had 60 guests. We started planning about a year before the big day, we did much ourself and spent several hundred hours to search for decorations, cakes, hair styles, dresses and everything else.’
It’s that time of year when summer brides are checking the to-do list, crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s. What could you have possibly forgotten?! Well today we are welcoming back our in-house wedding experts to talk about the bridal emergency kit! From makeup to snacks, they’ve got everything covered. Add it to your to-do list folks, its a quick and simple solution we hope you won’t need, but could save the day! With thanks to Lisa and Sam from Carmela Weddings for this wonderful advice!
While you may have planned your wedding day to perfection, there are bound to be a few hiccups along the way and chances are, said hiccups will be out of your control. Whether you spill a drink on your dress or your bridesmaid’s heel breaks, there are always going to be accidents that you simply can’t avoid. But what you can do is be prepared!
We recommending anticipating anything and everything, which is why we pack an emergency bridal kit for any wedding we plan. Bursting with make-up, sewing kits and even food, our ‘just in case’ wedding kit can easily save the day – trust us! While you may not have even thought about packing a bridal survival bag, we certainly wouldn’t show up to a wedding without it. Keep on reading to find out what to pack in yours. You can thank us later…
We’d recommend keeping your emergency kit in the Bridal Suite or in a safe place at your wedding venue – if so, make sure your bridal party know exactly where to find it should disaster strike. Alternatively, you can delegate the kit to your team of ‘maids, and one of them could pack it in a pretty clutch bag.
First things first, pack spare make-up! Whether it’s lipstick top-ups or redoing your mascara (think of all of those happy tears), you’ll definitely be turning to your make-up bag at some point during your big day. Plus, your bridesmaids will probably need to top up their make-up too. You don’t need to pack your whole cosmetics drawer, but definitely bring a few essential items. This will also ensure you’re looking picture-perfect in your wedding photographs, and there would be nothing worse than flicking through your wedding album to see smudged mascara.
A compact mirror is also super handy to have in your kit. Whether you have a quick glance at your make-up or to check you haven’t got any leftover food in your teeth (imagine your photographs), we would never be without a mirror at any wedding.
We are celebrating all things sunny today with this beautiful wedding in Sicily from Hilo and Ginger Photography. Mariella and Philip chose this stunning location while on holiday and you can see from the photos why they chose such an amazing venue. The views, the sea, the natural backdrop, all go together to make this wedding a real stunner. I just love the outdoor ceremony and the outdoor reception and when the sun goes down it looks even more beautiful. Full marks to groom Philip who chose these wonderful flowers, I love it when the groom gets involved and these blooms are a great selection.
Mariella and Philip were married on the 18th June 2016 at Tonnara di Scopello, Sicily, Italy. ‘We always knew that we wanted it to take place outdoors. So it had to be a summer wedding. And I wanted it to be next to the sea or a lake because I love the water. I didn’t want it to be too big but have all my loved ones with me. We were at vacation in Sicily and came across the Tonnara, and that’s when we knew were we want to have the wedding. We had 110 guests and the wedding took 9 months to plan.’
