Well Hello Friday am I pleased to see you! How are you all? Have you...
More and more often I am seeing colour coming back into weddings, mainly in the styled shoots I get sent. It seems these are leading the way in what to expect for upcoming years, and I cannot tell you how happy I am to see colour back on trend. Today’s styled shoot is a great example of how colour can be used, with a strong sixties theme and of course the cutest flower adorned alpaca. The shoot took place on 26th April 2019 at Forever & Always Farm in Murrieta, California. It is filled with the most gorgeous 60s decor, macrame, beautiful flowers, fab stationery and the most amazing cake table. Courtney McManaway Photography worked with a talented team of wedding suppliers to create this shoot, and I just know you are going to love it.
Today we are talking jewellery with the lovey people at Benati. Benati is the brain child of Anat and Ben Proctor a couple with a real passion for designing and making jewellery. If you are looking for something unique and individual then Benati is for you. They create a wide selection of beautiful rings in different styles, using a variety of stones and different designs. Ben is currently focusing his time on his Mobius Collection and his nature inspired leaf collection.
‘My name is Ben Proctor, I am 36 years old. I was born in London UK and moved to Israel when I was 6 years old. I am married and have 3 children.
From an early age I had a strong connection to gemstones. This fascination became a hobby, I collected these rare and beautiful gemstones, and within time my collection grew tremendously. I still remember the first gemstone I received.
I always had a connection and interest in art and design; enjoying black and white photography, drawing, and the aesthetics of sushi making. While brainstorming what to study the idea of jewelry making came up. After a few lessons at a local goldsmith school I was immediately hooked and knew this is what I wanted to do.
In 2006 I started to study jewelry design at “Shenkar” College of Engineering and Design in Israel. I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Design (B.Des). After college I gained experience with a few local and international jewelry companies, however my dream was to have my own brand and create jewelry independently.’
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a good weekend? After the heat wave we had on Friday I was glad for some milder air on Saturday and Sunday. We had Nik’s brother and his family round for a BBQ on Saturday, which was lovely. A trip to the park, a bit of online shopping and a few jobs crossed of my to do list! Now on with this weeks weddings and I have a real beauty to start the week with. Dmitry and Anna planned their perfect Russian wedding in just 5 months and the results are this Bohemian dream of a wedding. You would be forgiven to think that this was actually a styled shoot it looks so good, but it’s actually is a real life wedding. With lots of wild flowers, an amazing pampas grass ceremony arbor, deep tones of red and the most amazing decoration. This outdoor wedding ticks every wedding box there is. I’m also in love with Anna’s Rara Avis gown, how stunning does she look! What an absolute delight this whole wedding day is! Big thanks to Vladimir Simonov for the stunning images.
Dmitry and Anna were married on 13th July 2019 at Country Club “Polyana”, Moscow region, Russia. ‘From the very beginning we knew exactly what we wanted – nature, freedom and dances by the fire. Kind of Coachella for family and friends somewhere in the fields. Taking 70 people to US was impossible, so we discovered a perfect option one hour away from Moscow. For the first time we came to “Polyana” in February, when everything was covered with tones of snow. And the first “person” we saw became a huge alabai Belyash – one of a numerous four-legged residents of Country club, who won our hearts in an instant. We had 50 guests and it took 5 months to plan’

Happy Friday Everyone, how has your week been? Have you had a chance to enjoy the sunshine, or are you stuck at home or at work? I have had a busy week juggling work and childcare during the summer holidays. We have a lovely weekend planned, with a few of the family coming round for a BBQ. Nana who is in our bubble is staying the night, then we will all be out somewhere on Sunday to enjoy the outdoors and get some fresh air. What about you? I am finishing the week off with the lovely wedding of Lexi and Jeff, who had a fall wedding in Tennessee. The whole day is chilled, filled with elegant decoration with a Boho twist and full of love and smiles. Big thanks to Alex Kournetas their wedding planner for the submission.
Lexi and Jeff were married on 13th October 2018 at Liberty, Tennessee on on friends land. ‘I (Lexi) grew up in the Midwest and one of my favourite seasons was the fall. We live in Texas, and unfortunately, the climate doesn’t allow for the beautiful fall seasons I’m used to. We also envisioned our day as a very intimate occasion. We didn’t want the same experience that is advertised in the many wedding magazines we received throughout the planning process. When our family friends offered up their home and land for our wedding, we immediately knew it had to be in the fall to really allow their property to come to life. We had 50 guests and it took 7 months to plan.’
