This afternoon we are back with our regular feature ‘Advice from the Married Side,‘ real life wedding planning...
Today I am taking you to Cornwall, the place I was brought up. Cornwall will always have a huge place in my heart as I lived there for 18 years from Childhood until I started University. For that reason, I LOVE receiving weddings from this part of the country. Becca and Mike’s wedding is a great example of a stunning Cornish wedding that is both DIY, luxe and stylish. Both Becca and Mike have super talented friends and family, so they had lots of help with things like the flowers, decor and the cake. I just love the way it has all come together. The geometric patterns and shapes are gorgeous and the modern colour scheme of white, gold and green work perfectly with the geometric theme. Big thanks to Alexa Poppe for the lovely images.
Becca and Mike were married on 28th July 2018 at The Green in Cornwall. ‘We looked at several places closer to home (in Plymouth) but when we went to The Green we knew this was the place. With all the different buildings we didn’t have to worry about weather. The wedding barn was full of character, which meant a lot to us and we love to be surrounded by the moors. We had 80 guests and it took just over a year to plan The bridesmaids’ dresses were the first things I bought back in June!’
Happy Monday everyone, how are you all this wet and windy Monday morning? I hope you had a good weekend? What did you get up to? Mine was lovely. My Mum came up from Cornwall for the weekend for her birthday. It was spent, drinking, visiting the cinema, going out to dinner and eating birthday cake. A lovely time was had by all. Now it’s time to dive straight into the week and start Monday with a bang with this stunning Ibiza wedding. As the weather has been pretty rubbish over the last few days, I thought you might appreciate some Summer sunshine. It’s a stunning wedding, very natural and calm with the most amazing backdrop of the famous Ibiza Benirras beach. Maite and Ricardo put their trust in their wedding venue Element’s Restaurant, as they planned their wedding from overseas and the results do not disappoint! Sara Lobla has done a fantastic job capturing the day.
Maite and Ricardo were married on 23rd June 2018 at the dork of Element’s Restaurant in Ibiza. ‘By coincidence we both wanted to get married in Ibiza. When we had visited (individually) the island, we just fell in love with it. It has a kind of energy and vibe one cannot describe. As for the venue, we wanted to embrace nature and so we decided to pick Cala Benirras, one of the most iconic – if not the most – sunsets in the island. People gather there every sunday to play drums and dance as the sun sets and closes with an applause. The venue itself Elements was just perfect as well. We wanted to have a very natural look that tied to the elements of water, earth, sun.. on the beach. We even included Apachetas around our wedding ceremony to honour mother earth or Pachamama. We had 51 guests and it took just over a year to plan overseas.’

Yay for Friday! I certainly have that Friday feeling, do you? How has your week been? Mine has been busy, so I’m looking forward to a couple of days off from the computer with a bit of time to unwind. It’s my Mum’s birthday this weekend so she is coming up from Cornwall to spend the weekend here in Sheffield. I have a trip to the cinema planned and a lovely dinner out to celebrate. I’d love to hear your plans?
Today’s wedding sees us head to Essex for this rustic farm wedding, filled with DIY decor and details, lots of pretty lavender, a Ceilidh band and plenty of fun, all captured perfectly by Amy Jordison.
Frances and Joshua were married on 11th August 2018 at St Mary’s Church, Radwinter, Essex and Anser Gallows Farm, Hempstead, Essex for the reception. ‘We had 100 guests, from engagement to the big day, it was a year and ten months, but it took us a while to find the perfect venue in that time. Once we did, it was just over a year to organise everything, which was plenty of time to make it personal.’
