I have another fabulous wedding for you today that was sent into me by Libby...
Good afternoon everyone, today we are off to sunnier climes to explore South America for some honeymoon inspiration! I have Cuba on my to-do list for next year and these activities are making me more excited! Have you been to any of these places? Do you recommend? I’m going to pass you over to Tom our resident Honeymoon Expert for some exciting ideas on Latin America as a honeymoon destination.
South America is a fantastic honeymoon destination for those who like to do things a little differently. It’s thrilling, exciting, perfect for adventure-seekers, and filled with surprises along the way. From off the beaten path destinations and mind-blowing sights to experiences that will change your life forever, a Latin American honeymoon is just daringly different. If this sounds like your kind of place, here are 7 once in a lifetime experiences that you just have to try.
Bordering Argentina and Brazil, the Iguazu Falls are a sight to behold, especially if you’re travelling by helicopter. Air tours are available from both sides of the river so whether you are on holiday in Brazil or Argentina you can take a ride right over the Falls for a spectacular panoramic view. Go at sunset for that added honeymoon magic and some great photo ops.
Set below the Andes in southwest Bolivia, this huge salt flat is the world’s largest and it’s a place where hopeless romantics can come and “walk on water”. Often called The Mirror of God by the locals, you can walk, skip, jump or drive over what, at first glance, appears to be a big lake. But this dried up salt flat is just a huge reflective surface where salt and minerals have solidified. A spectacular place for photography and a magical stopover if you stay in an Airstream Campervan. Some luxury campervan packages even come with a private driver, a tour guide and a personal chef – ideal for honeymooning couples who want some serious luxury.
We have another fabulous wedding for you today, courtesy of Emma & Rich. It’s a beautiful colourful barn wedding set in the Scarborough countryside and it’s full of love, colour and lots of DIY touches. James and Rachel wanted to use touches of vintage and a hint of the 70s within their wedding and this they did. Rachel’s’ dress is beautiful with the little daisies attached, and the mix of colorful flowers really make the wedding pop.
Rachel and James were married on the 16th July 2016 at St. Laurence’s Church, Scalby, followed by a reception at The Barn, Coastal Road, Scarborough. ‘We chose to get married at St Laurence’s as we have many family connections to the church and it is the most beautiful church in Scarborough. We chose The Barn because it is in a beautiful and calm country setting, extremely charming, rustic with relaxed feel to it. The venue was only a 5 minute drive up the road. Reverend Mr Pynn led the church ceremony who was actually Rachel’s old head master at secondary school, which was nice. We had 65 guests and the wedding took 5 months to plan.’
This afternoon we have a wonderfully colourful styled shoot to feature on the Blog, submitted from the very talented photographers 2 Brides Photography based in Sweden. With bright outfits, eclectic blooms and festival styling there’s lots to love about this laid-back shoot.
We are heading across to Canada today for the most stunning wedding. It’s another rainy wedding which I seem to be featuring a lot of at the moment, but that doesn’t make it any less beautiful. In fact Jordan and Bobby completely embraced the rain and it really adds to the day. Jordan is the most stunning bride, in her bare feet and beautiful gown, but it’s their super cute baby that really steals the show, check out the picture of him asleep in Jordans eyes, sooo cute!! The whole day is set off beautifully with the clean modern colour scheme of green and white and Jordans wish that the florals take prime spot is realised with the most amazing blooms. Big thanks to Grace & Gold Studios for these gorgeous images, I know you are going to love this wedding!
Jordan and Bobby were married on the 13th August 2016 at a Private Residence in Morrisburg, ON Canada followed by a reception at The Harvest Barn, Upper Canada Village. ‘We decided to get married in my parent’s back yard purely because it is a stunning location and in our minds, there wasn’t a more beautiful, or meaningful place to say our “I do’s”. We had 130 guests and the wedding took 8 months to plan.’
This afternoon we have the most beautiful collection to share with you from Anna Campbell. Anna’s collections are always full of the most delicate and beautiful embellishments. There is something truly mesmerising about an Anna Campbell dress, with designs simply dripping with decadent hand-embellishments, intricately hand-beaded laces, soft pretty tulles and floating silk chiffons. Inspired by the opulence of bygone times, yet influenced by the relaxed elegance of modern weddings. We featured the Gossamer Collection here last year which went down a storm, so I hope you enjoy the new collection!
