The wedding world is in a very difficult place at the moment. If you were...
I have the cutest wedding for you today. It comes from the wild meadows of Oregon and features a nature loving outdoorsy couple who wanted to introduce their love of the wild into their wedding. Molly and Tim were married on 7th September in Hood River in Oregon. They found the perfect spot and held a gorgeous outdoor ceremony filled with the most gorgeous blooms, including some stunning sunflowers. The whole day is super laid back and filled with so much love. Molly and Tim look so in love and are obviously head over heals for each other. Big thanks to Elissa Deline Photography for the gorgeous images.
Shopping for the perfect engagement ring can be extremely overwhelming. There are so many different styles, designs and jewelry stores to pick from. Not to mention the added pressure of spending so much money on a ring that your partner may or may not like. That is why doing as much research as possible is a great step in the right direction when it comes to picking the perfect engagement ring. Whether you want hand picked diamond engagement rings or you want something from the diamond district, here is everything you need to know to purchase the best ring for your partner.
The “Four Cs” stand for cut, carat, clarity and color. Understanding these factors will help you determine the best diamond for your buck. The cut refers to how much it sparkles as the shape of the cut is done with particular parameters in mind so the facets interact with light for maximum sparkle. Carat refers to the size or weight of the diamond. On average, an engagement ring diamond is one carat or 200 milligrams. Clarity deals with the imperfections of the diamond as most stones have flaws. The smaller, fewer and less visible the flaws, the more expensive the diamond will be. Colors refer to the spectrum of shades the diamond comes in and is ranked on a scale from D to Z. D is no color and is one of the rarest while Z is visibility yellowish. There are also other colors like pink, yellow and chocolate. A good rule of thumb is the more saturated the color, the more valuable the stone.
Today I am taking you to Oxfordshire for the rather splendid wedding of Christopher and Chad. These two grooms wanted a rustic themed day and Lains Barn was the perfect option for them. This stunning barn venue meant they could hold their ceremony and reception in the same place making it a much simpler and fuss free day. They both went for tweed suits which added a real country feel to the day, and the barn itself looked absolutely gorgeous. I love the cake, which highlights their love of running and the beautiful photos from MT Studios.
Christopher and Chad were married on 9th August 2019 at Lains Barn, Wantage, Oxfordshire. ‘We both had either attended or were attending Oxford at the time of the wedding, and consequently, wanted a venue that was close to the University. In addition, we were both keen for a rustic theme. We had 90 guest for the ceremony with an additional 30 for the reception. We began organizing the wedding a year in advance, starting with the more impactful decisions such as where the venue would be located, the number of guests, creating save-the-dates, and who would be our respective groomsmen. Once we knew who to expect and where the venue would be, everything else fell into place.’
With the news that small weddings are now allowed in the UK, some wedding plans may be looking to change to accommodate the new rules. Small weddings can be just as amazing as a big, large scale affairs. Intimate weddings can be more personal and easier to organise. Elopements are also incredibly popular at the moment. Today I have invited Lena & Carsten from Denmark onto the blog to tell us all about choosing the Danish Islands as an option for your small or intimate wedding. As wedding planners at Nordic Adventure Weddings they offer expert advice and a number of options for planning a unique, intimate, fun filled wedding.
Love is the experience of a lifetime, but as is a small intimate wedding abroad, especially on Danish islands.
Your wedding day is your special day, but to make it unforgettable, have you ever imagined eloping abroad or having an adventure wedding? Imagine having a Nordic wedding and embracing a totally different part of the world!
Denmark is the perfect country for an adventure wedding because it is full of history, beauty, culture, and nature. Also, its laws make it easy for international couples like Courtney and Patryk to get married.
For a small intimate wedding abroad, Møn Island can rejuvenate you with its peaceful nature.
Møn island is characterized by steep cliffs and a neverending shoreline. Located in the south-eastern part of Denmark, it is an island full of beautiful landscapes like meadows, ponds, steep hills and woodlands.
Møn’s Klint spans for over 6 km and peaks at 128 meters. Møn’s Klint (klint means cliff in English) is a collection of chalk cliffs that last for days.
Møn’s Klint came into existence over 11,000 years ago after a glacier melted. It is full of fossils as it contains many shells from creatures that lived more than 70 million years ago. Imagine getting married at these hills and having that as a backdrop!
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend? What did you get up to? As ours was so busy last weekend with Dexter’s birthday, this weekend we had a chilled one. We managed to get a few jobs done and on Sunday we went to Chatsworth with Dexter’s Nana. It was a lovely day out, just what we all needed! I have a jam packed week for you this week, starting off with this fun filled rainbow tipi wedding. Katie and Andy held an outdoor humanist hand fasting ceremony and then a tipi reception. They filled the whole day with so much colour, with their bright blooms and DIY decoration. They really went to town making this a super chilled out day and it looks like so much fun. Cassandra Lane was there to capture the day for us.
Katie and Andy were married on Saturday 3rd August 2019 at Penney Fields, Knutsford, Cheshire. They wanted to do their day differently and have a non-traditional wedding that was an alternative to other weddings they had attended before. They chose to do their day completely DIY and arrange it all themselves. The tipi was the starting point for their plans and became the focal point of their informal celebrations. Once they had settled on a tipi wedding, the couple chose Penney Fields in Knutsford for the location.
