Melissa and Steven’s Super Glam Peacock Themed Wiltshire Wedding by Kate Gray Photography 

Today we are moving away from our normal rustic style weddings as I share with you this super glam Wiltshire Wedding. I am a huge lover of all things sequin and rose gold, so when this gorgeous wedding filled with both sequins and accents of rose gold landed in my inbox I knew I had to share it with you. Melissa and Steven’s surname is Peacock, so when they found The Larmer Tree which has peacocks walking around it’s grounds, they took that as a sign and booked it straight away. They filled their day with subtle touches of a peacock theme, along with candles, beautiful flowers and a neon ‘The Peacocks’ light. The whole day is gorgeous from the beautiful outdoor ceremony to the balloon filled party reception, all captured perfectly by .Kate Gray Photography 

It really was perfection, somehow everything fell into place, making any stresses absolutely worth it. It was everything we imagined and wanted it to be

Melissa and Steven were married on 21st September 2019 at The Larmer Tree, Tollard Royal, Wiltshire. ‘We wanted a venue that was slightly different but our guests would enjoy, we met with Gail, the events planner at The Larmer Tree and she was just fantastic. She told us, anything we wanted, she could make it happen! It’s such a beautiful place and had everything we wanted for our wedding, we couldn’t say no, especially as they have so many peacocks on site! We had 78 guests on the day (another 5 to the evening) It took roughly 2 years to plan, we booked the venue 22 months before the wedding and the photographer 18 months before but we mainly did everything in the last 11 months’

Nora and Mason’s Dog Loving Natural and Outdoorsy Boho Wedding by Sarah Elizabeth Photos

Today’s wedding is super sweet and stars the most beautiful dog called Helen, who really does steal the show. Nora and Mason were married on 26th May 2019 at Idaville in Indiana US. They are both lovers of the outdoors so it was important that their venue reflected this. The day was full of rustic outdoor charm wild flowers, amazing vegan food, gorgeous decoration and of course their dog Helen, who was part of the day from beginning to end. From the gorgeous first look to the beautiful outdoor ceremony, this wedding is just stunning, natural and captured beautifully by Sarah Elizabeth Photos.

Ella and Jamie’s Locally Sourced, Hand Made Tipi Wedding at Home by Miss Whittington’s Photography

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you are all well and happy and have survived yet another big storm here in the UK? I sure am looking forward to Spring and the end of this horrible weather! How was your weekend? Mine was good and now we have a week of half term. I am looking forward to a few days off with Dexter, days out with friends, making memories and having lots of fun. Today’s wedding is a good one, we are in North Yorkshire for this hand made tipi wedding and it looks like a great day. Jamie and Ella were lucky enough to hold their ceremony and reception at Ella’s mums garden. They kept it super personal by making a lot of the decoration, including the flowers themselves. Friends and family helped with things like the cake and the entertainment and they sourced all local suppliers for the other elements. The whole day is natural, laid back and full of fun. Miss Whittington’s Photography  was there to capture the day in all it’s glory.

Our wedding was just the best day ever. It was just full of happy moments, our favourite people, smiles, giggles, jokes and sweet moments – we feel really lucky.

Jamie and Ella were married on 27 July 2019 at Newton Upon Rawcliffe in North Yorkshire. ‘We were lucky enough to have the wedding in my Mum’s garden. We’ve always wanted to get married at my Mum’s house. It’s obviously where I grew up, and the village and garden holds so many special memories for us as a family, as well as Jamie and I as a couple. We have 90 day guests and 150 evening guests. We were able to plan the wedding from start to finish in around 10 months. We were too excited to have a long engagement!’

Jacqueline and Adam’s Sun Filled Greek Wedding by Crete for Love and Andreas Markakis

Happy Friday everyone and Happy Valentines day! I hope you are having a lovely romantic day with your loved one. Are you celebrating this day of love at all? Nik and I are celebrating by attending Dexter’s end of term assembly…I know so romantic! We are both working from home today so I am hoping to pop out for some coffee and cake at some point. I normally work on a Friday evening, but I’m taking the night off, Nik is cooking some delicious food and then we are going to watch a film. Not exactly the height of romance BUT after 11 years of marriage just getting the whole night together is a rarity! So as it’s Valentines day I had to share a super romantic wedding with you and what could be more romantic than a traditional Greek wedding, with plenty of sunshine, on the beautiful Island of Crete. Jacqueline and Adam used to live and work in Crete, in fact it’s where they met each other, so it seemed only fitting to return to the island for their wedding. The wedding has been sent into me by their wedding planners Crete for Love and captured perfectly by Andreas Markakis.

Our wedding day was a fun, relaxed and very sunny affair. Our life together and our personalities were entwined throughout but everything was given a fantastic Greek twist!

Jacqueline and Adam were married on 22nd June 2019 at Spilia Village, Chania in Crete. After meeting at the airport in Crete and then working on the island we always knew we would come back here to get married and have our wedding in a traditional Greek setting. The moment our wedding planner took us to the village of Spilia outside Chania we knew it was the one. The area outside the church was just gorgeous but it was the Taverna in the middle of the village that stole our hearts. Cobbled stone floor and rustic wooden tables underneath an array of tree branches – it was breathtaking. We wanted somewhere beautiful and that our guest could have fun well into the night – dancing under the stars! Our guests were truly blown away by the setting. We had 85 guests and it took 18 months to plan..
