Happy Friday everyone, I hope you have all had a great week? Do you have anything fun planned for the weekend? Any wedding planning jobs on the to do list? My week has been great, slowly getting used to having a little fur baby in the house. Daisy our new kitten is certainly a character, I have found it quite hard to get any work done, as she is constantly on my desk being cheeky and looking for attention! We are completely smitten though!
To finish the week in style, I have this elegant and earthy destination wedding for you. Heather and George always knew they would get married in Greece, as George’s mum owns and runs a Villa out there, so it seemed like the natural choice. You can see why as the views are amazing, and the villa itself is beautiful! What a perfect location for a wedding! The Springles were there to capture the day in their own beautiful style.
Heather and George were married on 15th June 2018 at the luxury villa Kapari Bay, Zakynthos, Greece. ‘Kapari Bay is a luxury villa owned and run by the mother-of-the-groom. The villa and location on Zakynthos Island is stunning, and the groom has many fond memories of summers spent at the villa. As the bride is Canadian and the groom English, a wedding in Greece (neutral ground!) suit us perfectly. We had 60 guests, close family and friends and it took 6 months to plan.’
This afternoon we are turning our attentions to the grooms and groomsmen. Weddings are often very female focused, but it is as much the grooms day as it is the brides, so it is important not to leave the men out. From my experience, the groom is playing a much bigger role in the wedding planning, so it is important that their opinions are heard as much as the ladies. Today we are looking at the role of the groomsman specifically. The groom will need a team of his best men around him to make sure the day goes off without any glitches.
It’s usually considered an honour to be a groomsman. However, this honour also comes with a lot of responsibility. In order for you to become a great groomsman, there are several things you’ll need to do. Emelina has joined us on the blog this afternoon to give us a few ideas of how you can become a great groomsman and help out your mates on their wedding day.
Planning a wedding can be incredibly stressful for both bride and groom. One of the best things you can do for your friend is to offer to help them out and try and take some of the weight off their shoulders. There’s any number of things you can do that will make their lives just a little easier over this stressful period of time.
For example, you can provide their measurements to the suit hire shop and then go pick up the groomsmen suits once they’re ready. How about offering to pick up visiting family members from the airport, train or bus station.
If your friend is having a stag party, then help them plan the party. You can research the best venues where it could be held, and then help your friend stock up on the food and supplies required for his stag. Any help you can give to the groom will take some of the stress off him.
Today I am taking you across to San Francisco for this super stylish wedding set in a stunning Conservatory. The venue is the perfect location for this super chic and modern wedding. Linda and Michael chose the Conservatory of Flowers as it was a perfectly peaceful getaway from the hubbub of the city and a totally idyllic backdrop for this nature loving couple. They added in modern, sleek detailing amongst an array of flowers and greenery, and I just LOVE the results. The day was planned by Jessica Gauss, one of the owners at Riley Loves Lulu and the photos were supplied by Alison Yin.
Linda and Michael were married on 29th September 2018 at Conservatory of Flowers, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. ‘We both love nature, and especially the public parks in San Francisco. The Conservatory of Flowers is idyllic and gorgeous, making it an welcoming oasis from the city. Not to mention, we thought that our guests would enjoy perusing the flower galleries. We had 150 guests and it took 9 months to plan.’
Today we head off to Newark in Lincolnshire for the colourful, eclectic wedding of Donna and Kurtis. The couple wanted a wedding that reflected their individual personalities, their love of summer garden parties and a venue that allowed them to bring their pets to their ceremony. This they found in Priory House. The quirky venue gave them all the freedom they needed to create a totally personal, hand made wedding, full of life, colour and as they say a few ‘exotic eccentricities’ Geoff Kirby Photography was there to capture the day.
Donna and Kurtis were married on 18th of August 2018 at Priory House. Long Bennington. Newark, Lincolnshire. ‘We had visited a number of wedding venues but had not yet found one that reflected both of our personalities. It was when looking for a photographer that we stumbled across Priory House. We liked the idea of the relaxed walled garden party for the reception as we had plenty of party games, firepits and a love for summer outdoor evenings below the stars. We instantly fell in love with Priory House and its hosts Carol and Roger. Priory House, with its unique quirky features blended with practical outdoor space was just what we were looking for. We later discovered that we could also have the ceremony at Priory House, our guests could camp in tents and campervans and we could bring our dog ‘Poppy’…Obviously, we were sold! We had one year to plan the wedding and due to me starting a postgraduate course in the September, we had most of the big things planned and booked in the first 4 weeks!’
