Well hello everyone and welcome along to another fabulous week on the blog. Did you...
The wedding world LOVES balloons, whether you decide on giant balloons, balloons with tassels, single balloons or a collection of them, you really can’t go wrong. Today we have invited the guys from Pro Flowers onto the blog to teach you how to make your own Balloon Arch. This may seem pretty daunting to start with, but you will see from the simple step by step tutorial and video that it is actually very easy to make, AND it looks great!
How will you dress up your big day? Your wedding decor should not only make a statement, but also represent the two of you as a couple.
Balloon arches are quickly taking the wedding world by storm, and for good reason! From fun backdrops for the ceremony and welcoming your guests to the reception to adorning the getaway car and making your “I,do’s” pop, this swoon worthy decor element is a fun way to incorporate balloons into your big day. And the best part? You can create one yourself! A DIY wedding arch is your chance to customize every detail. Select a muted color palette and add drapey florals for a natural feel or customize your arch with lengths of greenery and foliage to bring the outdoors in.
This fun do-it-yourself project may seem daunting at first, but don’t let the impressive design discourage you from creating your own. To help you get started, ProFlowers put together a video guide and step-by-step tutorial.
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a fabulous weekend? Did you attend a wedding? Maybe you had a weekend of wedding planning or wedding jobs? Mine was really good, if not a bit busy. Saturday was Dexter’s birthday party, as well as my wedding anniversary, and yesterday was, of course, Fathers Day. Today we are taking Dexter to CBeebies Land for a 2 day stay over as it’s his birthday tomorrow! He is so excited, bless him!
Back on with the weddings and to kick us off this week I am taking you off to gorgeous New Zealand for the wedding of Astrid and Greg. The couple is actually from Australia, however it was always Astrid’s dream to get married at her father’s family holiday home in New Zealand. The whole day was gorgeous, filled with beautiful flowers, an amazing Rembo Styling gown, some super pretty detailing, even the downpour during the outdoor ceremony didn’t put the couple off. Big thanks to The Good Wedding Company for the wonderful images.
Astrid and Greg were married on 4th November 2017. ‘We decided to get married at my dad’s house in Wanaka, it had been our holiday home for the last 25 years, with my dad making it his permanent home last year. I had always dreamed of getting married there, in saying that, it was a very hard decision as we live in Australia and knew a lot of our family and friends would have to travel, it was also a big decision as we knew that this meant our beautiful 12-year-old Poppy dog would not be there.
We are incredibly happy with the decision we made, it was the perfect setting, and now holds even more special memories.’
Happy Friday everyone, I do hope you have had a fantastic week? Are you looking forward to the weekend?? I have a full on weekend ahead of me. Tomorrow is Dexter’s 4th birthday party, so I have been busy getting that ready. It is also mine and Nik’s 9 year wedding anniversary tomorrow, so we will be celebrating with 30 4 year olds and a plate of sausage rolls and birthday cake! Sunday is Father’s Day and then Monday and Tuesday we are away at CBeebies Land for Dexter’s actual birthday. Oh and did I mention we are then going on Holiday the following Sunday! So to say I’m a tad stressed is a understatent! However, I’m really looking forward to all of the celebrations and can’t wait to spend a few days with my 2 best boys!
Today however, we are back to Barcelona, after visiting it yesterday, I have another glorious wedding to share with you. This one is a chilled out woodland wedding, with a music loving couple, all planned in 2 months. The day was captured by Ruben Cruz.
María and Andy were married on 11th November 2017 at Ca l’Iborra, Mataró in Barcelona. ‘We looked at other options first but we were very happy to find this place. The house is very nice, built in the 1920’s and restored with subtlety and care, preserving most of the originalarchitectural features. It’s surrounded by a gorgeous mediterranean forest where we wanted to celebrate the ceremony. Also, the people who own it are really nice. We had about 150 guests and it took two surprisingly short months. to plan.’
What do you get when you have a cool desert location, a super Boho wedding dress and an English photographer on a road trip around Arizona??? Today’s super cool desert inspired styled shoot! The shoot took place in January of this year at San Xavier Mission, Tucson desert Arizona, while Anna our photographer in question took some time out to road trip across America. Anna created a simple but colourful and beautifully photographed shoot with real couple Kiley and Tyn and the results are this super pretty collection of images.
Today’s wedding sees us travel to Barcelona for the wedding of jet setting couple Barbara and Bert. Their story begins in Belgium, moves on to Spain and then to Switzerland, with a proposal in Argentina and finally their beautiful wedding back in Spain. The ceremony was meant to be held outside, but a last-minute downpour meant they had to switch to Plan B, all handled with great ease by wedding planner Pearl Sandles. With the rain easing off long enough to hold their drinks reception outside, the couple realised their dream of holding part of their wedding amongst the Barcelona backdrop. A candlelit reception followed and for me is the highlight of the whole day. The most gorgeously decorated room, filled with festoon lighting, greenery and so many lovely little details.
