I think its fare to say Autumn is well and truly here! The leaves are...
Destination weddings are BIG! I have been writing this blog for 10 years now and I have to say I am seeing even more destination weddings landing in my in box. Is it a question of budget? As getting married in another country can sometimes be cheaper then getting married in the UK? Is it a need for guaranteed sunshine? After all holding, an outdoor wedding in this country often comes with it’s risks. Whatever the reason, destination weddings are becoming more and more popular. For this reason I have invited Noemi Bellante: www.noemibellante.com onto the blog to talk all things Destination weddings. From choosing the right ceremony to the benefits of choosing another country to get married in, Noemi is a first class wedding planner, so knows all the ins and outs and tricks of the trade!
“There are several reasons we help more and more couples celebrate their weddings abroad – explains Noemi Bellante, Wedding Planner in Tuscany and Abruzzo (Italy)
1) The desire for some intimacy with closer relatives and friends
2) The beauty of something never seen before
3) The will to go back to the native country of their families
Noemi says: “I consider destination wedding a romantic love escape for two. Getting married away from home means celebrating in an intimate atmosphere just with a few close relatives/friends and sometimes it’s a smart way to cut costs as well!”
Today is all about Destination weddings. This morning I am taking you to the beautiful Greek island of Crete for this stunning styled shoot, then this afternoon we are visiting Italy to learn more about weddings there. So on with today’s shoot. The shoot took place in March at the Amari valley, island of Crete, in front of Mount Ida where the god Zeus was born and grew up. It has been put together by Sveta from Crete Within Weddings, along with a team of hugely talented wedding suppliers. The shoot is timeless, ethereal and full of elegant Bohemian charm, perfect for a dreamy Greek wedding.
Today I am taking you away from the cold November day and whisking you off to gorgeous mountings of Portugal. Nathalie and Nathan came over from America to be married amongst the stunning Portuguese backdrop in March 2018 and their wedding is pure perfection. With just a handful of guests they kept their day super personal and very easy going. With beautiful flowers and a stunning outdoor seated reception area this wedding is so pretty and full of charm. D10 Photo was there to capture the day for us.
Happy Monday everyone and how are you all? Did you have a good weekend? Whatever you go up to I hope you had lots of fun and feel refreshed and ready for the week ahead of us? Mine was lovely. Saturday was what I call a life admin day, so I now feel a bit more organised and caught up on everything. Sunday I took Dexter to Cannon Hall Farm with a friend to watch their Pantomime of Aladdin, such a lovely day with my boy! So on with the week and starting off with this glorious bright and colourful wedding. Lindsay and Andy were married on 18th May 2019 at Addison Grove in Dripping Springs, Texas. They held their gorgeous outdoor Jewish ceremony under the trees, followed by a wonderful celebration bursting with colour inside the barn. The whole reception area is a joy to behold, so many bright colours and gorgeous decoration. I see a lot of white weddings filled with foliage and greenery, which I adore, but it does make a pleasant change to see so much colour in one wedding. Cory Ryan Photography was there to capture the day for us.
