Hattie and Andrew’s Colourful and Unique Intimate Wedding in Alabama by Katie Jewell Co

Happy Thursday everyone, as we inch closer to Friday I can hear the weekend calling! It’s rather cold here in Sheffield today so I have this bright and cheerful wedding to share with you to add a bit of colour to your day. Hattie and Andrew were married on 5th May 2019 in Birmingham, Alabama. They held a small intimate church ceremony which was followed by a big old party full of dancing and lots of fun! I just adore the colour combo they have chosen. The rich jewel tones are a breath of fresh air and work perfectly together. Hattie’s mustard skirt looks fantastic and really is a showstopper of a wedding outfit! I just adore this wedding, it’s so full of life, colour and happiness. Big thanks to Katie Jewell Co for the lovely photos.

Photographers Show and Tell: Helen Rose Photography – Weddings, Elopements And Outdoor Adventures

If you are a lover of the outdoors an currently looking for a wedding or elopement photographer then look no further then todays featured photographer Helen Rose of Helen Rose Photography. Helen is based in Sheffield and loves traveling around the Peak District and Derbyshire countryside to capture those special moments between wedding couples and families. Describing herself as an ‘adventure photographer’ Helen is passionate about getting out into the wild and making memories with you. Helen’s work is soft, fun, honest and natural, perfect for any Boho couples. I know you will love Helen’s work as much as I do.

I am an adventurous Wedding photographer who lives in Sheffield on the edge of the Peak District National Park.
Having spent my childhood in Scotland and Norway I have always been drawn to nature, quiet, wild places and mountains from an early age. As I have evolved as a photographer over the years I have always found that I feel that my biggest passions are photographing people but photographing them right in the heart of nature. I love the contradiction of a Wedding couple dressed up so gorgeously in a place you wouldn’t necessarily expect them to be, it feels very mischievous!

Happy Wednesday everyone and Happy 1st of December. For me it is now officially Christmas, I like to celebrate Christmas for the whole month of December, I just LOVE it!! The advent calendar is out, the elf on the shelf is up to no good and the Christmas countdown has well and truly begun! What about you? What are your thoughts on when Christmas starts? It’s a two post day today, this afternoon I am introducing you to a wonderful Sheffield based photographer but now it’s time to share this gorgeous wedding with you. Julie and Sergei were married on 18th June 2021 at Champaign, Illinois. Their planners designed a wedding for them that was both dramatic but in a simplistic way, marrying earthy tones with rich fabrics. The decor was a wonderful mixture of subtle with deep rich colours. It also included a traditional Chinese tea ceremony to celebrate Julie’s heritage. Big thanks to Inspire Your for the lovely submission and to Deidre Lynn Photography for the beautiful images.

Ask The Experts: Guide to Luxury Winter Mini Moons

Traditionally, honeymoons take place shortly after couples exchange their ‘I dos.’  But not all newlyweds have the time or means for a two-week getaway right after the wedding. Thankfully, there’s the minimoon.  It sounds like a fancy buzzword, but a minimoon is essentially a honeymoon, only shorter. Think of it as a bite-sized escapade or a preview to a future grander holiday. You can spend a couple of days exploring a cultural city or a week relaxing on the beach.  And just because minimoons are mini does not mean they are mediocre. On the contrary, most are bursting at the seams with luxury. Think lavish villas, world-class spas, fancy dinners, and exhilarating adventures.

But is winter a good month for a minimoon?  If you come to think of it, anytime is a good time for a minimoon, but there’s something uniquely special (and practical) about minimoons in winter. Off-season means less crowd and lower rates. You can have the best romantic locations exclusively as most couples wait for warmer months to go on vacation.
Ready to chuck away that post-wedding stress and be alone with your partner?  Here is our list of winter minimoon destinations that will take your breath away.

The Maldives

Ask The Experts: Guide to Luxury Winter Mini Moons

Some couples love cuddling by a crackling fire and drinking mugs of mulled wine, while others find a balmy beach and fruity cocktails so much more alluring.  If you’re the latter, then you will love a holiday stint in the Maldives.  What is more romantic than having quality time with each other in a secluded overwater bungalow surrounded by the turquoise blue sea?  Swim to your heart’s content, then soak in a cosy outdoor jacuzzi at sunset, a glass of champagne in hand.

Better yet, sail to a private island, where you can stay overnight at a luxurious seaside villa.  You can spend the entire day sunning on the shore, snorkelling around vibrant coral reefs or relaxing in an exclusive lagoon.  In the evening, enjoy a sumptuous feast prepared by a private chef.

Of course, you shouldn’t miss the honeymoon classics, such as dinner by the sea, sunset sail around the islands, long walks on the beach, and premium spa retreats.

‘Intimate Boho’ Romantic, Natural and Whimsical Wedding Inspiration

With the snow now thankfully melting away and a couple of days of slightly warmer weather ahead of us, we can look back to the summer when the weather was sunny and we could dream of outdoor weddings. Today’s super romantic styled shoot took place at Southend Barns, Chichester, West Sussex. It was put together by a team keen to celebrate the intimate wedding and show that even with a reduced guest count your wedding can look spectacular! By using soft tones of creams and pinks, pampas grass, macrame and soft draped fabrics, this shoot is just pure wedding perfection. The dog is of course the star of the show set-aside the most beautiful of decoration.

Using the Collecting Yard at Southend Barns – a stylish undercover outdoor area of the venue complete with an open fire pit – we set up an intimate outdoor wedding breakfast with a boho vibe using details such as pampas grass, peachy and pink florals and macrame. The ceremony barn was also styled in a similar theme.
