Erika and Roger’s Laid Back Earthy, DIY Wedding at Home by Lauren McCormick Photography
Happy Monday everyone! How are you all? I hope you had a wonderful fun filled...
Festoon Lighting has become so popular at weddings over the years. When I first started out wedding planning many years ago it wasn’t such a big thing but luckily for all those wedding planners, suppliers and guests stumbling around in the dark, festoon lighting is now massive! Not only does it look super pretty but it is so functional, making a day time wedding reception turn into a night time party with no fuss! Festoon lighting really does add a cosy feeling to any wedding or event, it adds a warmth, brightness and real festival vibe to any event.
Festoon lighting comes in various lengths and colours. Its is perfect for an outdoor wedding, whether it be a separate outdoor chill out area, a dancing area or a full on festival wedding. How much you want to use them is totally up to you. Choose longer length festoon string lights for the ideal venue lighting or pick solar festoon lights for a garden party.
Versatile and easy to use, there are many ways to decorate your space with outdoor festoon lights, regardless of how much room you have to play with. Get creative and couple festoon lights with string lights for a perfect overhead light canopy
Today’s styled shoot is all about Luxury and Glamour! Doing your wedding in a BIG way and really pulling out all of the stops! If you are looking at an outdoor wedding, your thoughts may instantly be pulled towards festival style décor or relaxed, earthy detailing. Well not all outdoor weddings have to be that way! Courtesy of the very wonderful Shelly from Toast of Leeds and a team of super talented wedding suppliers, today we are going BIG and going GLAM! The shoot took place last year at Wharfedale Grange, Harrogate and it is all about spring time luxury and showing that outdoor weddings can be as extra as you want them to be. The styling in this shoot is remarkable! The flowers are out of this world, the whole shoot is so well put together; the colours, the textures. It is all just so beautiful! Here’s to BIG weddings, to bringing the luxe back into Boho and keeping those florals on point!
If you are currently dreaming of summer holidays and trips abroad then today’s wedding is going to get your travel juices flowing even more! Kim and Karl are massive lovers of travel, with Italy holding a special place in their heart. So when it came to finding a venue to get married, Italy seemed like the perfect option. With a guest count of 70, they had the perfect amount of people to keep the day intimate yet full of love and atmosphere. The whole day is just amazing, with a gorgeous array of flowers against the old Italian architecture, the soft colour scheme and of course Kim’s stunning Grace Loves Lace Dress. Big thanks to Maison Pestea Photography for the stunning photos.
Kim and Karl were married on 1st April 2022 at Borgo Di Tragliata, Fiumcino, RM, Italy. ‘Travel has always been a big part of our relationship, so getting married abroad was something we both wanted. Our very first trip together was to Venice 12 years ago, and since then Italy has become our favourite destination in Europe. We are huge fans of Italian food and culture, so choosing an Italian wedding venue was an obvious decision for us. We wanted a venue where everyone could stay together and where we could hold our ceremony and reception in the one place. The Borgo ticked all of these boxes.
We had 70 of our closest family and friends which was the perfect number for us. It still felt like a huge celebration but with a lovely intimacy to it. We planned for over 2 years – but Covid definitely had an impact on that timeline. It was worth the wait.’
Well hello Monday! And how are we all today? I hope you had a good weekend? Mine was wonderful. I went for a meal with some friends on Friday night, Saturday I went to the ballet with my best friend and then Sunday I went to watch my son Dexter in a show put on by his Stage school, which was AMAZING! I’m a very proud mum right now! So out 3 nights on the bounce! What a weekend! So I am welcoming you back to the blog with the gorgeous wedding of Candice and Ben who were married on 1st October 2022 in Oakland, Oregon. They held a chilled and fun farm wedding and filled it full of rustic 70’s inspired detailing and decoration, a lot of which was put together by the bride herself. A superb looking day filled to the brim with the most wonderful autumn wedding inspiration. Big thanks to Christina Louise Photography LLC for the beautiful photos.
