Traditionally, honeymoons take place shortly after couples exchange their ‘I dos.’ But not all newlyweds...
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you are all well and happy and ready for the week ahead of us! Did you have a good weekend? I had a lovely one, Nik and I finally ordered the bedroom furniture as our bedroom is the last one to get a face lift. Having had the rest of the upstairs renovated it’s now our turn, so we ordered all of our new bedroom furniture on Sunday which is a relief to get done. I took Dexter to the theatre on Saturday and then he went for a sleepover at his Nan’s house, while Nik and I went out to dinner. Sunday afternoon was a long very muddy bike ride and a whole lot of cake! A good weekend all round! So on with the first of this weeks weddings and it’s the turn of Zoe and Danny and their gorgeous DIY Devon wedding, captured perfectly by Helen Lisk Photography. This was Zoe and Danny’s 3rd attempt at getting married after the pandemic caused them to postpone twice, but it really was a wedding worth waiting for! With so many handmade personal details, from the hanging decor to the items collected for the ceremony, these two really went to town putting their own personal stamp on their day. I just love this wedding, it’s fun, laid back, super stylish and full of heartfelt love.
Zoe and Danny were married on 3rd September 2021 (third time lucky after their first 2 dates got cancelled due to Covid!) everything happened at The Old Rectory, Pyworthy in Devon. ‘We knew we wanted to get married in Devon as we’re lucky to be from such a beautiful part of the world, and it meant that everyone could come including our precious older relatives. We were looking for something that we could use as a blank canvas, without rules or restrictions, and we wanted somewhere a little less traditional with bags of character. We got engaged in a treehouse in Bali and I remember the first random Google I did for wedding venues was ‘wedding venues with treehouses’ and up it popped – we looked at others in real life, but this first find was the only one we fell in love with in real life. A lot of the venues we looked at were the same price (or more!) for just one day, and we wanted to make the most of it (drag it out some might say…) and have time to properly set up with our close family and friends, as well as party all weekend. So we hired the place for 4 days and did exactly that.
We had 60 guests which is more or less what we planned for – we would’ve had a handful more, though some were not able to attend due to being stuck abroad with the pandemic. On the planning side it would’ve been bang on a year, but with the postponements it ended up being 2.5 years which we didn’t envisage, but feel so lucky to have been able to do it exactly how we wanted and with who we wanted on the third date.

Happy Friday everyone, well another week that has flown by and what a busy week it has been! How has it been for you? I hope you are all good and looking forward to the weekend. Dexter and I are off to the theatre on Saturday after Nik and I have ordered our new bedroom furniture. The house is getting there now, after a bit of a break over the Christmas holidays things are back in full swing! Only another few weeks and it will all be done (thank goodness!) On with today’s styled shot and as it’s January I thought what better time to share with you this gorgeous winter styled shoot. The shoot took place on 31st January 2021 at Leadville, Colorado and is the perfect example of how you can turn a winter wedding or elopement into a cosy celebration, filled with the most gorgeous winter inspired decor. A wonderful example of how winter weddings can really work. Big thanks to In Love and Adventure – Elopement Photography for the photos.
I do love it when a couple choose a venue that is slightly out of the ordinary, so when this SanDiego wedding landed in my inbox, I knew I had to share with you. Kimberly and Dave are big fans of San Diego Zoo Safari Park , such big fans that they decided to get married there on 15th August 2021. What a wedding it was! Surrounded not only by the most amazing decor, jewel toned details and stunning flowers but the backdrop of the Safari animals is just breathtaking! Imagine having the giraffes as wedding guests, how amazing! I just love this wedding and Kimberly and Dave are such a gorgeous couple. Big thanks to Desert Born Studios for the wonderful submission.
Sometimes when I get sent a wedding I get an instant reaction to it. With today’s wedding my instant reaction was Wow!! Heather and Nathaniel did an amazing job at putting together one beautiful looking wedding. With the stunning Mexico beach as a backdrop you really can’t go wrong and this wedding really does have it all. The view, the decoration, the flowers, the energy and of course the most gorgeous of couples you could wish for! From the soft romantic tones of burnt orange, soft pink, ivory and champagne in the decor, outfits and flowers to the full on beach party through to the early hours. This wedding is one to remember. Big thanks to Lux Art Wedding Studio for the exquisite photos.
Heather and Colin were married on 9th October 2021 at Akiin Beach in Mexico ‘We love to travel! We visited Tulum in October of 2020 and just knew it was the perfect spot for us to get married. We visited Akiin, and the location took our breath away! We tasted the food and cocktails and were immediately in love. We had 48 guests and it took a little over a year to plan.’
