‘Dune Gypsies Wedding Inspiration’ By Love and Stuff Photography

I seem to be featuring more styled shoots on the blog recently.  I’ve not always been a massive fan of them but every now and again a real beauty drops into my in box and I just know I have to share it with you! This afternoon I have a real treat in he form of this Dune Gypsies shoot, courtesy of Susan from Love and Stuff Photography. The shoot comes all the way from Sydney Australia and takes place in the Wanda Sand Dunes in Cronulla Sydney in the middle of June this year. There is a real relaxed Boho feel to the whole shoot and I just love it, I hope you do to!

‘A free-spirited couple roam the dunes in search of a sacred place to pledge their love.  Part Moorish part Southwest they find a relaxed desert setting where they can adorn their table with succulent fruits, flowers and luxe details. With a palette of white, neutrals, metallicS and pops of bright colour, this shoot juxtaposes opulent details with a relaxed boho vibe.  The most perfect day for the most non-traditional couple.’

I’ll pass you over to Susan to tell you more about the shoot…….

‘I’d been wanting to collaborate with Niki for a while and we decided on Wanda Sand Dunes for the shoot.  The rest was working to find vendors that we loved and we were lucky to engage some talented artists. The inspiration was free spirited, adventure and loads of love. We wanted to evoke our inner gypsy.
We were so lucky leading up to the shoot, the weather and timing was on our side.  We wanted to show a really isolated sacred scene for our couple and we achieved that even with all the spectators and runners near by.
We have a few more shoots in the pipeline, thinking of shooting in more national parks and using beautiful botanicals in a woodland theme. (more…)



Katie and Martyn’s ‘Boho Meets Surf’ Turquoise and Pink Wedding. By Libra Photographic

On this cold, wet and windy Tuesday I have this warm, bright summer wedding to cheer you up, courtesy of Libra Photographic. Katie and Martyn decided on a ‘Boho Meets Surf’ themed wedding, to draw on both of their personalities. This was mixed in with a Turquoise and Pink colour themed which gave it a bright, modern twist. I just love this colour scheme, as well as all the amazing details in this wedding. Katie really went to town with all the different handmade details, from stationery, to favours, sweetie tables to the surf board guest book, no details was left out! Couple that with Katie and Martyn’s, wonderful outfits, relaxed manner and stunning looks and you have a totally wonderful wedding. Happy birthday to Nathan from Libra Photographic, whose birthday it is today!

Katie and Martyn were married on 14th June 2014 at The Guildhall Poole and Lake Yard Marina Poole. We are both from Poole and we both love the sea and boats. It was our special place where we met and made a life together. We had 70 guests to the Guildhall and 50 in the evening it took 4 1/2 months to plan.

Victoria and Paddy’s Gorgeous Garden Party Wedding. By Rebecca Douglas

Hello and welcome to a brand new week! How was your weekend? I hope you had a good one! I have a week jam-packed with beautiful weddings for you this week and lots of fab inspirational articles to share with you, so let’s get the ball rolling with this superb wedding which has been sent into me by blog regular Rebecca Douglas. Rebecca has captured this beautiful garden party themed wedding perfectly! Such a  relaxed, chilled out summer wedding which has a fun happy feel to it. Victoria and Paddy have really pulled off a chilled out day full of smiling guests and so much love and laughter, the perfect way to start the week!

‘An intimate ceremony in a country chapel followed by champagne afternoon tea, lawn games and dancing. A relaxed and rustic garden party.’

Victoria and Paddy were married on Saturday 26th July 2014 at Ashdown House School, East Sussex. ‘Ashdown House is the wonderful boarding Prep school where we both teach. Paddy has worked there for over 13 years. It’s where we met and it’s where we live. The little chapel is charming, the sprawling grounds rival those of any popular wedding venue and the views of the Ashdown Forest are simply glorious. Ashdown occupies a special place in our hearts and we could never imagine being married anywhere else. We had a small wedding for 90 of our closest friends and family – including 16 little girls, 5 little boys and 3 babies. As we are teachers and so many of our guests have young children, we wanted to include even the tiniest people in our day. No one loves a wedding more than a little girl wearing a princess dress! We planned the wedding in fits and starts. During the term, we can work seven days a week and so we made sure to use the holidays wisely. We made our major bookings 18 months in advance – the marquee, band, flowers – all of the important suppliers. And of course, the dress! We then took a long pause before ramping up the organisation about 3 months before with other outfits, invitations, favours etc. In honesty, we really kept planning right up until the day itself. All along the way, we had help from the lovely Jenny at Bellaboo and Beau which was a great relief!’
