Happy Friday everyone and how are you all this cold Friday? I don’t know about...
The sun is shining and it really is beginning to look a lot like Spring. How much better does the day feel when we have some sunshine? It really is the simple things at the moment that can make a day that much better. And sunshine is something that is plentiful in today’s wedding, as we head over to beautiful Croatia. Lisa and Robert went for a woodland fairy theme filled with lots of rustic detailing and plenty of glitter. With the most gorgeous outdoor ceremony filled with dream catchers and Boho decor. The whole day looks amazing with Lisa and Robert really setting the tone in their stylish outfits, against the beautiful Croatian backdrop. Aloha weddings was there to capture the day for them.
Lisa and Robert were married on 15th June 2019 at Lovrecina bay on island Brac in Croatia. ‘We decided on Croatia as we heard it was beautiful and easy for people to get to from England. We had 55 guests and it took 18 months to plan.’
Happy Monday everyone and how are you all? Did you have a good weekend? Many of you reading this may be in the midst of what you feel is a wedding nightmare having to rearrange your spring or Summer wedding to later in the year, or even next year. You may have dreamed of a Summer wedding and now be having an Autumn or Winter wedding. Well I wanted to share today’s wedding with you because it is a stunning super cosy Autumn wedding and if I were to get married in Autumn, this is what I would want my wedding to look like. It’s full of candles, fairy lights, greenery, amazing decor and has a really cosy and romantic feeling to it. It goes to show that Autumn is now the season to rock when it comes to weddings. Aimee and Mark did a fantastic job creating such an amazing day, big thanks to Lena and Patrick for these gorgeous photos.
Aimee and Mark were married on 5th October 2019 at The CowShed, Crail, near St.Andrews in Scotland. ‘Where we live there are a lot of castles, manor houses and hotels which are very popular for weddings. Mark and I wanted to steer away from the status quo and make our wedding as personal as possible. We live in a converted Steading in the countryside next to the sea and when we found The Cowshed during our research (which is a converted cowshed in the countryside next to the sea) we fell in love. It was the first and only place we viewed. It was airy and open but still managed to give that cosy rustic feel when inside. Not to mention it was 100% bare which allowed us to do exactly what we wanted to it. We had 90 guests, we gave ourselves two years from engagement to wedding however the majority of the planning was done in a year.’
Happy Friday everyone, how are you all doing? Well, at the end of Week 2 of lockdown things seem to be settling down a bit? I guess we are all getting used to things in our new way of life. I have to say though I can’t wait for this to be over. I’m sure like you some days are harder than others. Personally I am trying to count my blessings every day and today I am looking forward to the weekend. I love my job but man it’s hard trying to juggle child care and work, it sure isn’t easy! So the weekend is just about family time and enjoying being with each other. Today though we are celebrating the wedding of Grace and Craig who held a beautiful day last June in the gorgeous French countryside. They had a very chilled outlook on the whole day and this was reflected in their laid back celebration. Minimal fuss, simple decor and a fuss free celebration. Goes to show you don’t need a whole load of stuff to make a wedding special. Big thanks to Jessica Grace Photography for the lovely submission.
Grace and Craig were married on 22nd June 2019 in Monflanquin, France. ‘We wanted a whole weekend of fun and felt like the best way to get that would be to go away. We also wanted a better chance of good weather. We had around 100 guests. We left most things a little last minute, even though we were engaged for 2 years. We properly kicked into gear about 6 months before. We had a lot of help from (much more organised) friends and family because we are a bit useless at this kind of thing.
This afternoon we are talking engagement rings with Jason D’Heureux, Creative Director from Taylor & Hart. Weddings may be on hold at the moment, however getting engaged is still on and what better time to do it! Choosing your engagement ring may be a bit harder than normal as just popping along to your local jewellers may be a bit tricky! However, Taylor & Hart offer a custom made jewellery service that is completely virtual and totally personal, meaning you can still choose your dream engagement ring in the comfort of your own home – ‘We will ignite your imagination and bring your engagement ring ideas to life. Individually designed or customised by you, your personal design consultant will offer their guidance and insight along the way.’ Creating both lab-grown & mined diamonds and gem stones in a variety of colours and shapes Taylor & Hart have a variety of styles to cater for any taste.
I have invited Jason D’Heureux the Creative Director onto the blog to answer a few questions about the company and offer some advice on designing your own engagement ring.
‘Joining the team from across the pond, Jason leads product development and manages the overall direction of the brand. His passion for jewellery is infectious and his love of all things beautiful is reflected at Taylor & Hart. Completing an MBA and leading teams in other industries before making a change into jewellery, he also manages the human resources function for the team. As a trained GIA Graduate Gemologist, he’s our resident expert on coloured gemstones.’
Hello everyone and how are you all doing? I’m not going to lie it’s been a tough couple of days. It’s not been easy having Dexter at home, while Nik and I try and work from home. Some days are good and some days are just rubbish. Yesterday was bad, so I’m positive that today will be a good one. How are you all coping? It’s not easy but we need to keep going to help fight this thing, then normal life (what ever that is) can resume. Anyway back on with today’s wedding, as we head over to Atlanta for Megan and Chads wedding that happened on 4th October 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia. The day includes portraits in a cemetery after their ceremony and a big party in an open top bar. They did things the way they wanted and ignored many of the traditions, making the day completely unique to them. Big thanks to Aline Marin Photography for the lovely images.
