I haven’t shared a DIY with you for quite a while now, so when I...
I think its fare to say Autumn is well and truly here! The leaves are falling, the nights are getting darker and I seem to have my heating on all the time!! Today I am sharing with you a beautiful Autumn/Fall wedding for you all the way from Tennessee, full of the most beautiful deep rich Autumn colours, with the most stunning backdrop. Bridget and Alex were married on 3rd November 2018 at Fall Creek Falls State Park in Spencer, Tennessee. They wanted a wedding that reflected their personalities, their love of the outdoors, their love of Autumn, nature, falling leaves and their love of bicycles. This they did with pure wedding perfection and the results are this gorgeous leaf filled day brought to you by OkCrowe Photography.
Diamonds are beautiful, there is no denying that, but do you always know where your diamonds are coming from? Now I have to admit this isn’t something I gave much thought to back when I was looking at engagement rings, however now I know more about diamond mining and the harm it can do it’s certainly something I would think about for any future diamond jewellery purchases. MiaDonna is a company I would definitely look at buying diamonds from, as they are conflict free, Eco friendly and Support The Greener Diamond charity. Anna-Mieke the founder of the company set MiaDonna up to try and give something back to the diamond industry and offer a new alternative ‘to offer consumers beautiful, ethical and affordable fine lab-grown diamond jewellery that would help free innocent children oppressed by the active conflict diamond mining industry.’ The diamonds are beautifully cut and a fraction of the price of a mined diamond, plus you can wear them with a clear conscious.
I have something rather special for you today in the form of this rather gorgeous elopement with added honeymoon night pictures. Willow and Tate are a free spirited couple who love the outdoors and knew they wanted something different for their wedding day. They decided on a chilled desert elopement, complete with hanging macramé, crystals and a beautiful drip cake. The elopement took place on 29th September 2018 in Utah at the gorgeous Under Canvas Zion. The couple had a super personal ceremony, followed by fizz and cake and then an intimate shoot in their honeymoon suite. Such a stunning day captured beautifully by Taylor Made Photography LLC.
Willow and Tate are a modern love story. Bonding over their love of adventure and the outdoors, they knew they wanted something unusual for their elopement. One of their first adventures was a weekend in Zion, so it was only natural that they would return to celebrate their forever.
Taking place at Under Canvas Zion, their elopement was elevated from traditional camping, but still close to nature. Their tent had everything a new couple would need, including a window panel above the bed to stargaze on their first night together.
Today I am taking you off to one of my favourite places in the world, Cornwall. I spent my childhood years growing up in Cornwall, and even though I left when I was 18 to move ‘up North’ it still has a very special place in my heart, which is why I love featuring weddings from Cornwall so much. Today’s wedding features one of the most gorgeous Cornish wedding venues, Lusty Glaze Beach in Newquay. A stunning beach side venue with the most amazing views and terrific backdrop for photos. Carly and Pete have done an amazing job of making this wedding super pretty, with just the right balance of DIY projects to keep it personal, while bringing in the best suppliers to make sure it all runs smoothly. Johnny Dent Photography was there to capture the day for us in style.
Carly and Pete were married on 25th May 2018 (and Pete’s 35th Birthday – double celebration and a date he will never now forget) The ceremony was held at Church: St Paul – Ludgvan with the reception at Lusty Glaze Beach in Newquay, Cornwall. ‘Pete’s mum was a vicar at St Paul (and sadly passed away 3 months before we got together), and so there was no question as to where we wanted our ceremony to be (albeit it ever so bittersweet on the day). Lusty was a no-brainer for us, we wanted to have a big party by the beach and Lusty gave us the laid back, boho wedding we were looking for! Plus a pizza oven! Who doesn’t want pizzas on their big day?! We ha 100 ish guests and it took 1 year and 3 months to plan.’
Happy Monday, and here we are again at the start of another wonderful week. How was your weekend? Mine was wonderful. I took Friday afternoon off to treat myself to a make up shop, so the weekend started early. I then went out with Nik and some friends to see Rhod Gilbert which was a fab night. Saturday I worked and yesterday we all went to see Marvel Universe, which was excellent. Dexter LOVED it! So a fun packed weekend. Today we start the week with a trip to New York for the wedding of Rita and Joey who were married on 4th July in Brooklyn at Brooklyn Winery. The whole day is super stylish, the couple look great together and the venue is just a wonderful backdrop to a cool laid back wedding. I love all the flowers and how they work against the wood of the venue. Everly Studios was there to capture the day perfectly for us.
