This afternoon we are talking engagement rings with Jason D’Heureux, Creative Director from Taylor & Hart....
Happy Wednesday everyone. As we reach the mid-point of the week I hope it has been a good one for you so far? The sun is shinning here in Sheffield, I hope it is where you are. It’s half term, which means no homeschooling (thank the lord!!) so Dexter and I are off to the woods this morning and then it’s an afternoon in the paddling pool. For now though I have THE most perfect wedding for you. Katerina and Eric were married on 21st June in Davenport, California. They chose the Redwoods as it is such an idyllic location. Their outdoor ceremony was so beautiful followed by an outdoor reception, which was pure wedding perfection and really made the most of the amazing location . I do LOVE an outdoor wedding, especially when the whole thing is held outside. There is something about eating alfresco and dancing under the stars that is truly magical. Oh and Katerina’s flower crown really is a thing of beauty! Big thanks to Sebastien Bicard Photography for the gorgeous photos.
The incredible emotions Eric showed that day was overwhelming for everyone. The crying is one thing but the genuine feelings he dared to share with friends and family touched all the guests. From the first look where he could not believe seeing Kat walking to him (see the photo of their first look in the redwoods), the ceremony where he lost it when Kat walked down the aisle to the speeches where hugs and happy tears only scratched the relationships they build with the persons involved.
In addition to that, the venue was incredible as well. There are not a lot of weddings there (it seems to be hard to have a hold of the owner) but the location deserves 5 stars. Redwoods and cabin are setting the background of this wedding in a way that very few other venues can offer. It gives a sense of serenity, calm and almost a family gathering.
This afternoon we are talking wedding entertainment. Finding the perfect wedding entertainment is so important, but people often underestimate just how difficult choosing a wedding band can be. There are a number of things to take into consideration. You need to consider what your guests will enjoy, as well as what you want, what your own style is, plus you need to make sure that you can fit the cost of wedding band hire into your budget as well.
Luckily, one of the UKs leading providers of professional live music Music HQ have put together a list of top tips to help you find the perfect live wedding band:
The atmosphere from live wedding music is one of the most memorable things about the day. It makes such a huge difference to the party, and it’s one of the things that people will remember long after the wedding. Unfortunately, the best live wedding bands are in high demand and they get snapped up quickly. Some people hire a band for a wedding up to 2 or 3 years in advance. If you wait for too long, all of the best options are likely to be booked up. It’s best to focus on the band before you do anything else, so as soon as you have a date set for the wedding, start looking at live wedding music and book your perfect band right away.
Weddings are expensive and there are so many different things to pay for. All of the small details soon add up and you will quickly realize that this is going to cost you a lot more than you thought it might, so you need to find ways to cut back. However, don’t cut any corners when you hire a band for a wedding because it will make a huge difference. A professional wedding band will create an amazing atmosphere and ensure that you and all of your guests have an amazing time.
When you are trying to find ways to save money, think about what people are going to remember about your wedding.
I have a laid back 1970’s inspired styled shoot for you today. A real treat for all you retro loving, bohemian brides out there. The shoot took place this February at Pauntley Court in Gloucester and was sent into me by Pixie Abbott Photography and her collection of super talented wedding suppliers. The shoot brings with it carefree, hippie vibes with earth tones, pampas grass and an original 1970’s dress. The whole shoot looks beautiful, so full of amazing inspiration, which is simple but hits the laid back brief perfectly.
Happy Monday everyone and if you are in the UK then happy bank holiday weekend. I hope you are enjoying your bank holiday Monday and that the sun is shinning where you are. I am being rather boring and spending it in the office catching up on some work. Nik is off work today, so able to look after Dexter, so I’m making the most of the quiet and having a good catch up. So on with today’s Austrian wedding and it’s a great example of how intimate weddings really do rock. If you are currently streamlining your guest count due to the world wide pandemic, then do not fear, intimate weddings are a thing of beauty. I only had 35 guests at my wedding and I loved it. Yes it’s lovely to hold a big grand wedding with 100s of guests, however holding an intimate wedding really does make life easier. Less stress, less people to try and talk to, no invitation nightmares and so much cheaper! So if you are currently thinking abut your wedding guest list, coupled with your postponement worries, don’t! cutting your guest list down could be the best thing that ever happened to your wedding and this wedding is proof that it can look absolutely amazing. Big thanks to Wild Connections Photography for the lovely images.
Ashley and Ben were married on 3rd September 2019 at Tirol, Austria at the Maierl Alm. ‘Ben and I always talked about having a small destination wedding in the mountains. Once we were engaged, a trip overseas was fresh on our minds to visit his sister and brother in law who were living in England at the time. We’d never been to Europe and always wanted to visit! After browsing the typical top 50 mountainous destination wedding locations we decided to just go for it and shoot for an adventurous destination wedding abroad! We had exactly 20 in the group including ourselves. It took 14 months to plan, couldn’t have done it without our fabulous wedding planner, Nadia Wood at Amulet Events.’
