Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend? What did you get up to? I hope the weather was kind and that it is beginning to look like Spring where you are. Our weekend was full of Spring fetes and Easter celebrations, it’s never too early to get those Easter eggs stacked up! This week is shaping up to be a fabulous week of weddings and I am kicking it all off with this complete stonker by This and That Photography. If you are a fan of the film ‘Back to the Future’ you are going to LOVE this wedding. When I saw it I just knew I had to share it with you, as it is totally unique and full of the most amazing decoration. Balloon installations for bubbles, a giant anchor, a whales tale, the most amazing flowers and a kick ass band! Oh yes, I really wish I had been a guest at this wedding. It looks like SO much fun! Emily and Richard, I applaud you for pulling off such a unique and fun-filled wedding day, it all looks amazing!
Emily and Richard were married on 4th August 2018, they held their ceremony at Islington Town Hall with the reception at Islington Assembly Hall. ‘We wanted to get married in London and wanted a venue that could capture the feeling of the Enchantment Under The Sea Dance from Back To the Future – our favourite film! Islington Assembly Hall perfectly fitted the bill – we loved the 30s decor, the high ceiling, epic stage and beautiful velvet curtains. The team there were amazing too, they did so much to help us and accommodate our unusual requests. We had 120 guests in the day plus an extra 20 or so in the evening. The only thing we did far in advance was the venue! We then smashed the rest of it in seven months; we didn’t want wedding planning to take over our lives for too long!’
Happy Friday everyone, I hope you have had a good week so far? Are you looking forward to the weekend? With spring now officially here I am looking forward to spending some more time outside enjoying the (hopefully) good weather and enjoying some Easter celebrations. This weekend we have a family fundraiser on Saturday and then Sunday an Easter bunny hunt, so lots of family fun to be had. Saturday night, Nik and I are off to the theatre to watch some contemporary dance, which I’m very much looking forward to. Today though it is the turn of Jenny and Sam, who are sharing their adorable relaxed country wedding with us. This laid back day took place in Leicestershire and features lots of homemade details, as well as a pretty pastel colour scheme and of course their pet dog. Thanks to JLM Wedding Photography for the images.
Jenny and Sam were married on 24th August 2018 at St.Philip & St.James church Groby, with the reception at The Old Stables in Swithland, Leicestershire. ‘The church was in the village I grew up in, some of my school friends had also got married there and I had been a bridesmaid so it had big sentimental value to me. The reception venue was just what we were looking for, somewhere relaxed and low key. We ahd 120 guest ad it took a year to plan.’
Today I have the most gorgeous wedding to share with you from the loveliest of couples. Alison and Austin are one of the warmest and friendliest couples I have featured on the blog for quite some time. They just radiate love when they are together, just look at these awesome images from Nikk Nguyen Photo and you will see the love and laughter pour out of them. They wanted a wedding that would celebrate their love and the future ahead of them, so they opted to cut out the frills and the fuss and focus on the bond between them. They were married on 16th June 2018 in San Marcos in Texas, at LaLa Park. This quirky and eclectic wedding venue was perfect for hosting Alison and Austin’s intimate and special day, they filled it with their closest friends and family and said their vows under an old oak tree. Pure wedding perfection.
How they met
We are high school sweethearts! We were together for 10 years before we got married. We have grown up and changed a lot along the way, but we’ve been changing together. We love that we were each other’s first and forever loves.
We decided to take a trip to Denver in the winter of 2017. Because we both love nature (we both graduated with environmental undergraduate degrees!), Austin decided to propose at the Denver Botanic Gardens. We arrived just before closing, so they let us in for half price. We went back to the Japanese garden, and Austin proposed on a secluded bridge over a frozen pond. It was perfect! Afterward, we were lucky enough to be able to celebrate with family!
Flower crowns have been big in weddings for quite some time now. For the past few years adorning your head with a ring of flowers has upped the anti on any Boho wedding and really added that ethereal look to any bridal outfit. Personally I love them and I still love to see brides, bridesmaids and flower girls wearing them in all their flowery goodness. Big, small, full circle, half circle, bright, subtle, no matter what style you opt for, a flower crown really is a fantastic addition to your final wedding look, perfect for any Boho, festival or whimsical look. Today on Boho Pins I have collected up my top 10 favourites from Pinterest to share with you. If you are currently contemplating a flower crown then why not take a look and see if any take your fancy.
Today’s wedding is super stylish and super fun and features a donkey! Now I LOVE donkeys, they are arguably my favourite animals, so when this wedding was submitted to me by Julia Franzosa Photography I just knew I had to share it with you. Joelle and Henry always knew that wanted to hold their wedding in Mexico, they wanted a destination wedding where they could celebrate for the whole week instead of just the day. They filled their day with lots of Mexican influences and the results are a stunning ceremony and reception area, with amazing blooms, lots of festoon lighting and the cutest sweetheart table. The escort card wall made up of maracas is probably my favourite feature though, how cute! But not as cute as the donkey obviously.
Joelle and Henry were married on 17th February 2018 at Flora Farms; San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico (In their mango grove!) ‘When Henry and I decided to have a destination wedding – far away from the winter snow– we knew it had to San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico. When else could we gather all our family and friends from across the United States, vacation in the sun for more than a day? We wanted to have more time to celebrate and enjoy than just the day of our wedding! Call us selfish. We had 130 guests.’
