You know a wedding is going to be a good one when they have a...
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend? Was it sunny where you are? We managed to grab a bit of sunshine, which was lovely, trying to make the most of any excuse to go outside at the moment, as I’m sure Autumn will be knocking on our door very soon! I am starting the week with this lovely English country wedding that took place at the brides parents’ back garden, making it super personal and even more idyllic. They wanted a rustic theme and with this they really went to town with the decor, from the beautiful blooms to the wicker baskets and super pretty signage. I just love the Tipi reception, the 4 tipis together look magnificent in the garden setting, so summery and quintessentially English! Sarah and William have created a wonderful looking day and really looked after their guests with an abundance of food and drinks. Joe Mallen Photography was there to capture the day for us.
Sarah and William were married on 25th May 2019 at All Saints’ Church, Tilford with the reception in Sarah’s parents’ garden in Tilford. Sarah has always dreamed of a wedding in the garden and both her parents built their own house so it was extra special to have it there. Sarah’s parents are also unwell with cancer, mother of bride terminally ill and it was therefore extra special that we were able to have it at home. We had 160 guests in the day, 180 in total in the evening, it took 17 months approx to plan.
Happy Friday everyone and how has your week been? I hope it has been a good one, filled with wedding planning and lots of wedding chat. Mine has been good, so I am now looking forward to a lovely weekend with my wonderful family. I’m trying to keep it a relaxed one as we are going away next weekend. Today I am taking you over to stunning Phuket in Thailand for the most amazing wedding. Bea and Sarah knew they wanted a destination wedding so they could make their wedding last all week and give their guests a holiday to remember. They brought in the help of the lovely Ilaire from Wedding Boutique Phuket and she set to work creating the most beautiful beach wedding filled with elegant touches of white, greenery and bronze. The whole day is totally jaw dropping and with these two beautiful brides you know it’s going to be a great wedding.
Bea and Sarah were married on 21st February 2019. ‘We’ve lived in Sydney, Melbourne and Manila; our wedding was destined to be a destination wedding for some of our guests no matter where we decided to have it. So why not give all our guests a holiday to the perfect destination location!
From the very beginning, we knew we wanted to get married by the beach and fell in love with Phuket on a trip we made, right after our engagement. On that same trip, we met our wedding planner, Ilaire from The Wedding Boutique Phuket who helped Sarah start designing our dream wedding and helped us choose our location.’
This afternoon I have a real treat for you, a feast for the eyes in fact, as I introduce you to the work of hugely talented wedding photographer Joseph K. Sarkodie from Sarkodie Photography. Joseph splits his time between London and Sydney and his love of travel can be seen in his work. Joseph’s work is true, honest and full of warmth. They are crisp, clear and have a real artistry edge. You can tell that Joseph is incredibly skilled at what he does and his technical ability shines through in his images. But don’t take my word for it, the man himself has shared 20 of his favourite images with me today and has answered a few questions, so you can all get to know him a bit better.
This morning I have a really gorgeous styled shoot to share with you. It has been sent into me from Broadfield Court in Herefordshire, where the shoot took place. Broadfield Court is a new venue, so they wanted to create a shoot that would reflect who and what they are about. They wanted to create an edgy Boho vibe by using rich colours, feather, macrame and an abundance of beautiful floras. The whole shoot is super stylish and full of amazing decoration ideas. A hugely talented team worked super hard to pull it all together and the results are stunning.
If you are currently planning a festival wedding then one of the most important aspects will be the music and entertainment, after all that’s what a festival is all about! Choosing your wedding entertainment can be tricky at the best of times, with so much choice and so much on offer, so getting the music right for a festival wedding could be even harder. Well fear not, today the guys from Entertainment Nation are here to offer you some first class advice on what to choose and what works in different wedding situations.
Balmy evenings illuminated by lanterns. Tipis and tents under the sun and stars. The enticing aroma of sizzling street food. What could be better than reliving those heady nights of the big summer festivals of your youth and bringing together your festival-going friends for some nostalgic nuptials? There’s a reason festival weddings have gone beyond trend and become one of the most popular themes for cool young couples.
We’re biased but we think getting your wedding entertainment right is one of the most important elements in planning your wedding. And that goes double for an outdoor festival style wedding; what’s a festival without live music, after all?
If you’ve got your heart set on a summery celebration filled with singing and dancing, then you’re in the right place. We’re going to run through the most popular acts to make your big day shine whatever the weather gets up to!
