Jennifer and Steven’s Romantic and Rustic Italian Wedding By Sam and Louise

We are half way through the week so I thought it was a good time to jet you off to the Italian lakes for a stunning Italian Wedding. I think it’s safe to say it is now officially winter, so this burst of Italian summer sunshine is just what we need to brighten up this cold day. The wedding was sent into me by Sam and Louise and it really is beautiful. The location, the decoration, those amazing views and of course the very happy bride and groom. I know you are going to love it!

‘A relaxed day surrounded by our closest family and friends in a location that is truly breathtaking. Keeping the true meaning of marriage at heart – us two and our two beautiful daughters’

Jennifer and Steven were married on 10th July 2015. The Ceremony was held at Villa Bossi, Orta San Giulio, Lake Orta, Italy and the reception was held at L’Ustaria Cà dal Rat, Orta San Giulio, Lake Orta, Italy. ‘We are in the wedding industry so always knew we would get married abroad to give us a completely different experience to what we are used to here in the UK. Italy is close to our hearts our first family holiday with our 1st born daughter was in Italy and we also found out we were pregnant with our 2nd daughter in Italy. When we got engaged we decided we wanted to marry at one of the lakes and just from searching for pictures, Lake Orta took our breath away. We had 56 guests in total and it took one year to plan.

Ciara and Richard’s Picnic Style Barn Wedding in York By James and Lianne

Today we are heading back to the midst of the summer for this gorgeous barn wedding in York and a big dose of sunshine. James and Lianne photographed this gorgeous wedding full of country-style and a picnic theme. With amazing food, a Ceilidh Band, a beautiful BHLDN wedding dress it really is a day to remember and a feast for the eyes. Well done to Ciara and Richard for planning the whole thing from Singapore, what an amazing day you had.

‘Our wedding day was very relaxed and informal with a garden party feel as people sat in the sunshine and chatted over gin and ice cream. From getting ready in the morning to dancing in the ceilidh the whole day was full of fun’

Ciara and Richard were married on 2nd August 2015. The ceremony was at St Lawrence’s Church in York and the reception was at Tithe Barn in Nether Poppleton. ‘As we currently live abroad in Singapore it wasn’t easy for us to choose our wedding venues, but the beautiful church was just up the road from where we used to live! Our wedding in St Lawrence’s was actually a church blessing as we did ‘the legal bit’ in Singapore a few weeks beforehand in a small ceremony with 4 close friends. Getting our marriage blessed in the church was very important to us as we got to share it with all of our special people. We had 80 guests, which was just the right number for the barn venue. The planning process took about 18 months and although stressful at times it was very enjoyable! The internet was our best friend during this time as we had to book everything online or through Skype calls with family, friends and vendors. We never even saw our venue in person before we booked it – just some pictures online.

Boho Loves: Wedfest – Festival Wedding Wristbands

Festival weddings are BIG at the moment! I have featured so many on the blog I have lost count. Over the past few years brides and grooms have certainly taken a more relaxed view to their wedding day and turned it into their own festival of love. Bringing in bands, creating  a much more chilled environment, more relaxed catering options and really making their wedding reflect their personality. One way you can really give your wedding a festival feel is with the stationery. Wedfest are a specific festival wedding stationery company, offering a multitude of options for your own Festival wedding.

One of the unique products that Wedfest produce are Festival Wedding Wristbands. Wedfest offer lots of different options with their festival wristbands.

Personalised Festival Wrist bands 

First of all Wedfest design personalised wristbands to fit the theme of your own wedding. You can choose the design, the colour, add in your name, dates of the wedding, anything to follow your own wedding theme. These are great for larger weddings and really add a splash of colour and a real festival vibe. They can be given to the guests as they arrive at the wedding, just like at an actual festival. They are then left on for the whole of the wedding and taken away with them as mementos, acting as a cool alternative to the wedding favour. They can also be given to the guests as an actual wedding invite alongside their paper invites, which would really set the tone for any festival wedding.
The beauty of the personalised options is you can make everyone feel like a VIP for the day with a wristband that says ‘Access All Areas’, or ‘Backstage Pass’
