When you have booked all the big bits of your wedding, it’s time for the...
Happy Friday everyone, I hope the sun is shining where you are? I’m of work today as I am looking after Dexter. I couldn’t have picked a better day as it is hot and sunny already here in Sheffield so the paddling pool is out and ready to go. Nik is away for the weekend, so I am meeting friends for dinner this evening, Dexter has a party tomorrow afternoon, then I have another friend coming over on Saturday night, then Dexter and I are out for the day on Sunday. Happy Days indeed! On with today’s wedding, and what a wedding it is. I have been so excited to share this one with you ever since it was submitted. Emelyn and Breck were married on 22nd September in Bedford, Virginia, on their family ranch. What started off as a calm garden wedding in the sunshine, soon turned into complete disarray as they experienced a whole lot of rain and a flash flood. The rain turned into mud and more mud and more mud! You have to see the pictures to appreciate just how much mud there was, as the dance floor turned into a mud sliding competition. Everyone was covered head to foot in mud! What a crazy day it was! Big thanks to Sowing Clover Photography for the fantastic photos.
Finding the right wedding photographer in my opinion is one of, if not the, most important parts of your wedding planning. Once the wedding is over, all you will have is your memories and your wedding photos to look back on. That’s why finding a photographer who understands you, your vision for the day and that you get on with is such an important factor. Today I have Aaron Morris, owner and photographer at Beyond the Frame Photography to share with you some of his favourite photos and tell you more about what he does and his work. Aaron is such a lovely guy. I have got to know him via email over the past few weeks and it has been a pleasure working with him. He is so enthusiastic about his work with an infectious love of what he does. He brings with him a fun, yet professional outlook and is ready to hear all about your wedding plans. One of the things I love about the way he works is that Aaron will send you a box of prints before you get to view your online gallery, what a lovely idea! Don’t take my word for it though, read on to find out all about Aaron and his work.
Happy Thursday everyone, anyone else got that Friday feeling? I am off work tomorrow looking after Dexter, so today is my last day in the office till Monday. Nik is away for the weekend, so I have lots of plans with my friends. I’m looking forward to lots of catch ups, wine, good food and of course lots of time with Dexter. Today I am taking you off to the gorgeous South of France for the wedding of Steven and Yosra. They held an elegant day which was filled with lots of emotion, laughter, tears and of course lots of love. Studio Balzac was there to capture the day for us.
Steven and Yosra were married on 13th June 2019. ‘The ceremony took place at the Town Hall of Cannes, the city where we live. And the reception took place a bit far from there, 100km exactly, at Le Domaine du Castellet in the little town of le Castellet in the south of France. The location of the reception was obviousness for us. Since the second we put our feet out of the car we knew we want to celebrate our wedding there. The atmosphere was perfect we couldn’t explain why. It was like ‘love is in the air’. We had around 80 guests we started to plan the wedding one year in advance’
What you wear to a wedding can be one of the most important aspects for some people. Choosing the brides outfit, the bridesmaids, the suits all have a big part to play in the whole feel of the day. BUT what about the guests? As a guest you will also want to look good but there are a few things to consider when looking for your dream wedding guest outfit. Today I have enlisted the help of wedding expert James to talk to us about top tips for choosing the perfect wedding guest outfit. I hope you find his advice useful.
When you get invited to a wedding, it means that you are someone special to the couple. Your presence during the couple’s union is important to them. As such, you need to make sure that you go to the celebration with the couple in mind. Besides choosing the best gift to give them, you also have to make sure that your outfit is appropriate for the celebration. Here are some tips on how you can pull off that perfect wedding guest look:
One of the first things that you should look for before you commit to buying a new dress for the wedding is the invitation. Verify if the couple indicated specific instructions on what their guests can wear. Is it a black or white tie? Are there any colors that the couple prohibits? Will the reception be a cocktail party? If the invitation does not indicate a dress code, you can never go wrong with a printed dress or a neutral suit because they will surely work well for both day and night events. You can opt to accessorize as well if you are unsure since you can easily swap them, depending on the time and venue of the wedding and the reception.
More and more often I am seeing colour coming back into weddings, mainly in the styled shoots I get sent. It seems these are leading the way in what to expect for upcoming years, and I cannot tell you how happy I am to see colour back on trend. Today’s styled shoot is a great example of how colour can be used, with a strong sixties theme and of course the cutest flower adorned alpaca. The shoot took place on 26th April 2019 at Forever & Always Farm in Murrieta, California. It is filled with the most gorgeous 60s decor, macrame, beautiful flowers, fab stationery and the most amazing cake table. Courtney McManaway Photography worked with a talented team of wedding suppliers to create this shoot, and I just know you are going to love it.
