Happy Friday everyone, how are you all? I hope you have had a good week...
Today I have a super cute Tipi wedding for you that took place in Sheffield and Derbyshire. Emily and Luke married in Sheffield in the church on the same street as Emily’s family home. It was the obvious choice, especially as both of Emily’s sisters had married there. Their reception was then a homemade rustic affair that took place in field in Derbyshire inside a collection of beautiful Tipi’s. The whole day was a DIY dream, with so many personal projects; Entertainment from the guests, stationery made by the bride and flowers put together by friends and family. A very English country wedding, oozing charm and personality. Big thanks to Stevie Jay Photography for the lovely images.
Emily and Luke were married on 7th September 2019 at St Chad’s Church, Sheffield with the reception in a Tipi in a field in Wardlow Derbyshire. ‘The church is on the same road as Emily’s family home, the bridal party walked to the ceremony. Both Emily’s sisters were also married in this church. When we realised how many guests we wanted, it ruled out a lot of venues (especially ones we could afford). After realising how many guests you could fit in a Tipi, we fell in love with idea of a relaxed wedding in the countryside. The guest count was roughly 140 all day, then almost 30 more joined for the evening. We got engaged about 30 minutes into January 1st 2019. So 8 months and 7 days to plan it.’
This afternoon we are back with our regular feature ‘Advice from the Married Side,‘ real life wedding planning advice from all the lovely brides and grooms I have featured on the blog.
I get to feature so many amazing real weddings here on the blog and with each wedding I ask the couple to share with us their wedding planning knowledge and experiences. This post is a super useful collection of wedding wisdom from those who have just got married, to help you on your own wedding planning journey. I hope there will be something amongst these experiences that help you. Happy Planning!
Today’s super sweet styled shoot comes all the way from Honolulu in Hawaii. It features a real couple celebrating 3 years of marriage together in one of the most idyllic settings you could wish for. Chavah from Vida Chic Events was the brains behind the shoot, while Jenna Lee Pictures was there to capture the whole thing for us. They wanted to do away with flowers and bring in greenery and macrame instead and the results are stunning. This shoot is just what we need as the weather here gets colder, shedding some warm Hawaiian sunshine on this cold October day.
Happy Monday everyone and how are you this lovely Monday morning? I hope you had a good weekend? Mine was lovely. Friday evening was all about the school Halloween party that I organised with a couple of other mums, it all went well, and despite the bag of nerves that I was, everyone had a great time. Saturday I got my hair cut, and then took Dexter to a birthday party, and yesterday Dexter and I went to the theatre, what about you? Today I am kicking off the week with this STUNNING wedding from Nikk Nguyen Photo. Stephanie and Mark were married on 1st December 2018 at Villa Mazuelo Vineyards in Driftwood, Texas. The Vineyard actually belongs to Stephanie’s mum, which meant they could hold their ceremony there and then hold the reception in a marquee on the grounds. And what a reception it was, oh my!! So beautiful. The colour scheme was burgundy, black, cream/white, dark green, and navy, giving a dark, romantic and opulent feel to the day. With jaw dropping floral displays and the most stunning decor, this wedding is oozing style and glamour. A total triumph of the day and as for Stephanie and Mark, what a beautiful couple!
Happy Friday everyone, I hope you have had a good week? Mine has been super busy as I have been working with a group of other mums to put together a Halloween event for all the children at Dexter’s school. I may have spent years planning weddings but planning a party for 180 children really is another level of organisation! All is good though and the party starts at 4pm today. Dexter is SO excited! The rest of the weekend is taken up with birthday parties and a trip to the theatre for me and Dexter to watch Alice in Wonderland. For now though, I have the last wedding of the week and it’s the turn of Hollie and Mike and their gorgeous woodland wedding that took place at The Woodlands at Hothorpe Hall. The day is full of lots of pretty rustic touches, the flowers are gorgeous, adding a real burst of colour to the decor, I especially like the wooden backdrop that was made for them in the reception room. The whole day is full of DIY goodness, with so many friends and family pitching in and helping them make this a super personal wedding. Big thanks to Nathan Walker Photography for capturing the day for us.
