This afternoon we are back with another amazing styled shoot for you. I get inundated...
Happy Wednesday everyone, well done, you have made it to the half way point of the week! If you are working then the weekend isn’t far away and if you are surviving the school holidays, don’t worry it is closer to wine o’clock! Today we are heading across to Texas for the wedding of Carolina and Steven who were married on 9th March 2018 in Nevada. However, this isn’t Texas as I imagine it to be, these photos are filled with the most amazing blossom trees that give an absolutely perfect backdrop for this gorgeous wedding. With a beautiful outdoor ceremony and touching first look, this wedding by April Pinto Photography really is something special.
This afternoon it’s all about the boys! Finding a unique gift for the men in your wedding party can often be harder than you think. With so many age ranges in one wedding it can be difficult to find something that suits everyone. Today I would like to introduce you to Groovy Groomsmen Gifts who are here to make finding your groomsmen, ushers, best man, father of the bride, any of the males in your life the perfect gift. Their website is full of unique, quirky and personalised ideas. Today they are here to share a few options with you. Do let me know what you think.
When picking groomsmen, you’re typically inclined to choose your best mates. Your buddies have been there for you through life’s ups and downs and it’s natural that you choose them to play an important part in your wedding.
It’s also a tradition to give your groomsmen a gift as a way of thanking them for their help in the wedding. It’s a great memento of your bond, so gift them something they’ll love, something they can use, something like a mug for their drink. But regular mugs are too mainstream.
Thankfully, Groovy Groomsmen Gifts offers unique ideas to those who need help in finding a present. They specialize in gifts that can be personalized for each of your groomsmen, and some of their bestsellers are unique utensils with which one can use to imbibe their favorite poison. Check them out!
Starting off with class, a decanter not only makes alcohol look good, it can also refine the taste of the drink—perfect for gentlemen and ladies with a preference for luxury.
If you’ve got people of culture among your groomsmen, browse over a dozen styles of decanters on Groovy Groomsmen Gifts’ website. Some are available in sets, like the Sip & Smoke which comes with cigar holders and cutters or the BarFriender that’s complete with two lowball glasses, a wooden tray, a wooden ice bucket, and a wooden ice tong.
All of them, even their boxes, can be imprinted with your recipient’s name, just so you can make the gift more special.
Today we are heading off to not so sunny Italy, as Jenny and Adam share with us their rather rainy destination wedding. When you think of a wedding in Italy the first thing that comes to mind is sunshine, blue skies and very hot weather, instead in today’s wedding in Italy we see lots of rain. However, if anything it made Jenny and Adams wedding even better as it really did add to the magic of the day. Jenny and Adam didn’t let the rain stop the celebrations, they put the brollies up and got on with it. Soon after the ceremony the rain stopped which meant they were able to walk the Italian streets for their gorgeous couple shots. With the reception right on the beach front, the views are stunning, as is the pastel colour scheme and table decor. The whole wedding is captured by Jess Yarwood Photography and planned by My Secret Italy wedding planner and is just gorgeous!
Jenny and Adam were married on 14th June 2018 at Santa Maria di Castellabate, Italy, with the ceremony at Torre Perrotti and the reception at Lido Azzurro. ‘We have both always loved travelling abroad, and when we couldn’t find exactly what we wanted at home we decided to go abroad. I popped into a travel agent who said most Brits go to Italy or Cyprus to get married because the legalities are easier, so there was no question about which – Italy it was! After lots of Googling and searching I came across a woman’s blog on her own wedding in Italy. She had used My Secret Italy wedding planner. After speaking to Julie from My Secret Italy over the phone, I knew this was it! I had an instant connection, how Julie described the town, the possible wedding venues and how she plans the weddings. I spoke to Bazz (Adam) and he got the same butterflies. After looking over the costs and realising it wasn’t as expensive as we had expected, we booked with My Secret Italy and started planning our wedding in Santa Maria di Castellabate. After discussing what we wanted with Julie, and sussing our personalities, she recommended the venue and reception venue. I’d briefly looked at other options, but trusted her judgment fully so went ahead. Guest wise we had 24 adults, 4 children and the 2 of us. We booked with My Secret Italy about 18 months before the day. Engaged for 2 years.’
Happy Monday everyone, I do hope you have had a fabulous weekend? What did you get up to? We had a bit of a party at our house on Friday night, which was lovely. We had some friends round and their children and we all had a great time, our fridge is still full of BBQ food though, one day I will get my portion control right! I’ve been looking at what I have planned for you this week and we have lots of fabulous wedding articles and loads of wonderful weddings, starting off with this jaw dropping elopement which takes place at the Joshua Tree in California. Julian and Brandon chose the location for its Bohemain vibes and overall chilled out nature and the results are outstanding. Beautiful photography from Serena Genovese photography and the most stunning decor.
Julian and Brandon were married on 9th March 2018 at the Joshua Tree in California. ‘The desert is a beautiful place, and has such a bohemian vibe the resonates with both of us. That’s the exact idea we ad in mind. It took about 6 months to plan.
