It’s hard to remember the summer, as we head deeper into winter, but today’s wedding may remind you what incredible weather we had this summer and how amazing life was! Becky and Alex were married in June when the summer of 2018 was in full force and what an amazing day they had! They always wanted an outdoor ceremony and a venue that let them hold their wedding over a whole weekend, so when they discovered Elmley Nature Reserve in Kent, they knew they had struck gold! They went for a relaxed rustic Boho theme, with a colour scheme of pale green and blush pink and the results are stunning. The day was pulled together with the help of lots of talented friends and family, as they all shared their skills to create Becky and Alex’s wedding of dreams. S Bowdler Photography was there to capture the day.
Becky and Alex were married on 30th June 2018 at Elmley Nature Reserve in Kent ‘We always knew we wanted a barn wedding, but didn’t want a place that felt like a wedding factory or a formal setting. We also wanted a DIY venue which we could create something unique and bespoke for us. Elmley Nature Reserve was the first place we found online and we completely fell in love with it from the start. As soon as we drove down the 2km track to the barn through fields full of cows, we knew it was the one. Georgina who owns it is another reason why we loved it, she was one of the first person at a venue who sat down and asked questions about us and not just the wedding. It is a family run business and we liked the fact that you have full access to the venue on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday, meaning that is the only wedding there that weekend. We could create the wedding we wanted and choose all our own suppliers. It also allows you to have the ceremony outside, something we struggled to find without having the legal stuff done before. It literally ticked all the boxes and more for what we wanted to create a relaxed summer wedding. We had 135 day guests and 6 evening guests. We booked the venue in November 2016 so we had 18 months to plan.’
The stationery you choose for your wedding is the first glimpse your guests will get of your wedding. The wedding invitation, as well as being full of the information your guests need for your big day also sets the tone, and lets them know what kind of wedding to expect. Is it a classic invitation, a modern one, rustic or super chic? This will give them a good indication on what to expect of your day. Today I’d like to introduce you to Paperlust, an online platform set up to make choosing your wedding stationery that much easier. With hundreds of designs to choose from lots of different designers, Paperlust makes the whole process that much easier by making sure that everything can be done under one roof. The design, customisation, printing, everything you need to create your own custom made invitation suite is there for you on one easy to use platform. Don’t take my word for it though, pop over to their site and have a look around and find your perfect design.
Today’s wedding is full to the brim with bright colours, fun and lots of sunshine. Laura and Lee chose a destination wedding to Ermita De Santa Lucia in Spain as Laura’s family have been residents there for over 40 years, so it seemed like the natural choice. They chose a fiesta theme with an abundance of colour and wonderful Mexican influences. The day is bursting with bright bold decorations, and so many DIY details, from the individually made felt skulls, to the flowers, the table plan and the paper lanterns, it really is a feast for the eyes! Yana photography was flown out especially to capture the day and I’m sure you will agree has done a fabulous job.
Laura and Lee were married on 31st May 2018 at Ermita santa Lucia in Spain, Alcossebre and reception was at the Restaraunte El Pinar. ‘My (Laura’s) family have been residents of El Pinar for over 40 years. Lee and I love the place. It’s home from home and holds a very special place in both our hearts. As a child I remember the restaurant was just a small family run place that served tapas and simple meals, like lomo and chips! I used to play there ordering food for me and my friends, playing cards with the staff and generally getting in the way! As the years have gone by they have made so many changes to the place and now serve Michelin class food, but, the same family are still at the heart of it all and the staff are like a part of our family. The 16th century monastery (Ermita Santa Lucia) sat at the top of a mountain is full of History and beauty. Very few people have been lucky enough to say their vows there. In fact we were the first English couple given permission to marry inside the monastery. The setting is breathtaking, it’s hard to capture in pictures. We are very lucky to have a house in such a beautiful part of Spain, that is not only right next to a very pretty 16th century monastery with stunning views, but also a superb restaurant featured in the Michelin guide. We had 72 guests and it took around a year to plan.’
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend? Did you get up to anything festive? We have got our tree and decorations up, which involved Nik nearly sawing his finger off! A story I’m sure he will revel in telling for the next few months! Our house is now full of Christmas cheer, don’t you just love Christmas?! Today’s wedding sees us head off to the US, and see Maria and Damani who were married on 8th July 2018 at Boyds, Maryland by Shelly Pate Photography. It’s a simple wedding but filled with some beautiful natural detailing and the most stunning Needle and Thread dress for BHLDN.
