Hello Monday and how are you all? I hope you had a good weekend and...
Today I am taking you to Kansas for the wedding of Brandi and Craig who were married on 18th May on a friends farm in Norton. The couple kept to a strict budget by stripping back the decoration, keeping everything simple, and getting married on their friends farm. This laid back wedding is oozing with love, smiles and strong friendships. I just adore Brandi’s gorgeous Wilderley Bride gown, it is simply stunning and perfect for this rustic farm wedding. Big thanks to Native Roaming for the lovely photos.
It’s fair to say that 2020 has been a rubbish year so far! If you have a wedding planned for this year then it will probably seem even more rubbish! Coronavirus has had a HUGE impact all over the world with pretty much EVERYTHING being cancelled, your wedding included. However, please don’t despair, your wedding will happen, it will be fabulous, you just need to choose a new date and roll with the changes.
I’m sure you have seen many articles around the internet about postponing your wedding, so much information out there. So today I have invited Carla and Owen from Coastal tents one of our long time partners onto the blog to give us some easy to follow hints and tips for postponing your wedding with minimal fuss.
‘Over the last couple of weeks we have been talking to lots of our brides and grooms for this summer. Sadly many of them are in a position where they have to or feel they need to postpone their weddings. Most of them have been planning their weddings for over year if not longer and despite this they have been so understanding and pragmatic when it has come to rearranging their wedding. We are in the wedding industry because we love a celebration and we never imagined we would be in this situation but we will make sure everyone one of our clients has the best wedding or party on whatever day it happens.’
With the current wedding world being so up in the air and with weddings of a large number being banned all across the world, couples have had to think outside the box. Many have had to postpone their big day if it was due to happen in the next few months, but what will you all do when the ban is lifted? Will you look to hold the exact same wedding this time next year? Or are you looking for an alternative? My prediction is that elopements will become a lot more popular. People may opt to do this straight away just so they can tie the knot and at least be married as soon as possible, then carry on with their original wedding plans when a suitable date becomes available. For that reason I thought I would share this beautiful styled shoot with you. Set in the Roan Mountain area of North Carolina, the shoot was photographed by Alina K Photography & Design and submitted by Roan Wedding and Events.
The sun is shining and it really is beginning to look a lot like Spring. How much better does the day feel when we have some sunshine? It really is the simple things at the moment that can make a day that much better. And sunshine is something that is plentiful in today’s wedding, as we head over to beautiful Croatia. Lisa and Robert went for a woodland fairy theme filled with lots of rustic detailing and plenty of glitter. With the most gorgeous outdoor ceremony filled with dream catchers and Boho decor. The whole day looks amazing with Lisa and Robert really setting the tone in their stylish outfits, against the beautiful Croatian backdrop. Aloha weddings was there to capture the day for them.
Lisa and Robert were married on 15th June 2019 at Lovrecina bay on island Brac in Croatia. ‘We decided on Croatia as we heard it was beautiful and easy for people to get to from England. We had 55 guests and it took 18 months to plan.’
Happy Monday everyone and how are you all? Did you have a good weekend? Many of you reading this may be in the midst of what you feel is a wedding nightmare having to rearrange your spring or Summer wedding to later in the year, or even next year. You may have dreamed of a Summer wedding and now be having an Autumn or Winter wedding. Well I wanted to share today’s wedding with you because it is a stunning super cosy Autumn wedding and if I were to get married in Autumn, this is what I would want my wedding to look like. It’s full of candles, fairy lights, greenery, amazing decor and has a really cosy and romantic feeling to it. It goes to show that Autumn is now the season to rock when it comes to weddings. Aimee and Mark did a fantastic job creating such an amazing day, big thanks to Lena and Patrick for these gorgeous photos.
Aimee and Mark were married on 5th October 2019 at The CowShed, Crail, near St.Andrews in Scotland. ‘Where we live there are a lot of castles, manor houses and hotels which are very popular for weddings. Mark and I wanted to steer away from the status quo and make our wedding as personal as possible. We live in a converted Steading in the countryside next to the sea and when we found The Cowshed during our research (which is a converted cowshed in the countryside next to the sea) we fell in love. It was the first and only place we viewed. It was airy and open but still managed to give that cosy rustic feel when inside. Not to mention it was 100% bare which allowed us to do exactly what we wanted to it. We had 90 guests, we gave ourselves two years from engagement to wedding however the majority of the planning was done in a year.’
