Selecting your engagement ring is a beautiful thing. It’s intimate. It’s thoughtful. And it’s rarely...
Happy Friday everyone, and how are you all? I hope you have had a good week and that the sun has been shining where you are? I am super exited for the weekend as I am off to Chester to visit my dear friend and her Family. They have just bought a motor boat (I know how fancy) so we are gong out on that tomorrow afternoon and the weather so far looks glorious, Happy Days! I am finishing off the week in style with this totally gorgeous Eco friendly wedding, and t really is a stunner! Kelly and Mark were married on 25th May 2019 in Lakemont in Georgia US. They are both environmental scientists, so the whole wedding was Eco friendly from the straws to the beer, the confetti to the decor. It all looks amazing and the attention to detail is outstanding. A truly gorgeous wedding, brought to you by the talented Raluca Rodila Photography, Enjoy and happy Friday everyone!

Today we are heading back to last October for this lovely Autumnal wedding sent in by the wonderful Becki from All You Need is Love Photography. Charlotte and Daniel wanted their wedding to be about the marriage not about a huge fancy affair, so they hired a tipi and set about creating as much of the wedding themselves. They hired Fish and Chip and Pizza vans for their food and got their friends and family to help out as much as they could. This created a laid back fun filled Autumnal wedding with a colour palette of seasonal plum.
Charlotte and Daniel were married on 27th October 2018 at All Saints Church, Cawood, with the reception at Escrick Park Estate in York. ‘Charlotte’s grandad was a priest – All Saints Church was his main parish and there is a plaque in memory of him inside the church. We had 70 guests. ‘We got engaged in February 2016 with the intention that we could slowly and calmly organise everything over 2 ½ years. However, we took things a little too calmly and had to properly start organising everything around 6 months before the wedding!’

Today I have a real visual treat for you with this stunning wedding, courtesy of Karina Leonenko photography. Stephanie and Alex chose to get married in Cyprus with a mammoth wedding of 300 guest. They created a totally gorgeous wedding, filled with ‘Country Boho’ decoration all finished off with a very glam elegant finish. From the amazing ceremony arch filled with beautiful flowers, to the breathtaking outdoor reception, this wedding has style written all over it. As for Stephanie’s overall look, WOW! Doesn’t she look amazing! Her Julie Vino is stunning, a real show stopper of a dress. What a beautiful couple, full of love and so much happiness.
Stephanie and Alex were married on 2nd June 2018 at Ayia Paraskevi church in Germasoyia, with the reception at the garden next to it and the party at Dafermou winery in Lefkara village in Cyprus. ‘It is a cute church with a very nice garden next to it for the reception, which would make it very convenient for our guests. As for the party, the winery is a place we’ve fallen in love with, since it has an amazing view, it’s very atmospheric and romantic and matched completely with the theme that we were planning to have. We had around 300 guests and it took 1 year to plan.’
