Happy Thursday everyone, and for those of you in the UK, welcome to what looks...
Today we are talking bridal style with the wonderful Kelly Faetanini. Kelly Faetanini is a New York based bridal designer who has been designing modern, elegant bridal gowns since 2012.

I think you will love these gowns, but don’t take my word for it, here are a selection of gowns for the new Marilyn collection, along with some of the others available from Ellie Sanderson.
Today I have a real visual treat for you with this stunning wedding, courtesy of Karina Leonenko photography. Stephanie and Alex chose to get married in Cyprus with a mammoth wedding of 300 guest. They created a totally gorgeous wedding, filled with ‘Country Boho’ decoration all finished off with a very glam elegant finish. From the amazing ceremony arch filled with beautiful flowers, to the breathtaking outdoor reception, this wedding has style written all over it. As for Stephanie’s overall look, WOW! Doesn’t she look amazing! Her Julie Vino is stunning, a real show stopper of a dress. What a beautiful couple, full of love and so much happiness.
Stephanie and Alex were married on 2nd June 2018 at Ayia Paraskevi church in Germasoyia, with the reception at the garden next to it and the party at Dafermou winery in Lefkara village in Cyprus. ‘It is a cute church with a very nice garden next to it for the reception, which would make it very convenient for our guests. As for the party, the winery is a place we’ve fallen in love with, since it has an amazing view, it’s very atmospheric and romantic and matched completely with the theme that we were planning to have. We had around 300 guests and it took 1 year to plan.’
Today’s styled shoot is a real stunner, in fact you would be forgiven for thinking it’s an actual wedding as it’s so life like and set in the most breathtaking location. The shoot took place at The Farm Cottage Raglan in New Zealand in January of this year and features a real life couple. The outdoor ceremony and reception area set on the cliff tops overlooking the ocean, coupled with the beautiful greenery, festoon lighting and beautiful rustic decor, this shoot is totally breathtaking. Not only does it feature a real couple, there are also real guests too! With an array of delicious pizza to choose from against the sunset backdrop, I just adore the real nature of this shoot, the perfect inspiration for any Boho bride looking for an outdoor celebration.
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend? Was it sunny where you are? We managed to grab a bit of sunshine, which was lovely, trying to make the most of any excuse to go outside at the moment, as I’m sure Autumn will be knocking on our door very soon! I am starting the week with this lovely English country wedding that took place at the brides parents’ back garden, making it super personal and even more idyllic. They wanted a rustic theme and with this they really went to town with the decor, from the beautiful blooms to the wicker baskets and super pretty signage. I just love the Tipi reception, the 4 tipis together look magnificent in the garden setting, so summery and quintessentially English! Sarah and William have created a wonderful looking day and really looked after their guests with an abundance of food and drinks. Joe Mallen Photography was there to capture the day for us.
Sarah and William were married on 25th May 2019 at All Saints’ Church, Tilford with the reception in Sarah’s parents’ garden in Tilford. Sarah has always dreamed of a wedding in the garden and both her parents built their own house so it was extra special to have it there. Sarah’s parents are also unwell with cancer, mother of bride terminally ill and it was therefore extra special that we were able to have it at home. We had 160 guests in the day, 180 in total in the evening, it took 17 months approx to plan.
Happy Friday everyone and how has your week been? I hope it has been a good one, filled with wedding planning and lots of wedding chat. Mine has been good, so I am now looking forward to a lovely weekend with my wonderful family. I’m trying to keep it a relaxed one as we are going away next weekend. Today I am taking you over to stunning Phuket in Thailand for the most amazing wedding. Bea and Sarah knew they wanted a destination wedding so they could make their wedding last all week and give their guests a holiday to remember. They brought in the help of the lovely Ilaire from Wedding Boutique Phuket and she set to work creating the most beautiful beach wedding filled with elegant touches of white, greenery and bronze. The whole day is totally jaw dropping and with these two beautiful brides you know it’s going to be a great wedding.
Bea and Sarah were married on 21st February 2019. ‘We’ve lived in Sydney, Melbourne and Manila; our wedding was destined to be a destination wedding for some of our guests no matter where we decided to have it. So why not give all our guests a holiday to the perfect destination location!
From the very beginning, we knew we wanted to get married by the beach and fell in love with Phuket on a trip we made, right after our engagement. On that same trip, we met our wedding planner, Ilaire from The Wedding Boutique Phuket who helped Sarah start designing our dream wedding and helped us choose our location.’
