Today I have a real treat for you with this super cool 1970’s styled shoot....
It has been all about the colour so far this week on the blog. Monday we were all about Living Coral, Yesterday I shared with you the beautiful tropical themed wedding of Anelisse and Braden and today we are celebrating all things purple with this Celestial Dreams styled shoot, with the most amazing Geode Cake. The shoot took place in October this year at Meadowbrooke Bridal, in North Carolina and was sent into me by photographer Courtney Looney Photography. The cake alone stole the show for me when I first saw the images, then add in the table scape and gorgeous flowers and you have a vision of purple excellence that I’m sure you will love.
Yesterday I delighted the pages of the blog with Fabio and Catia’s stunning living coral themed wedding. Well today I am carrying on the colourful theme with this gorgeous tropical themed wedding. Anelisse and Braden wanted a modern, laid back wedding with a formal twist that allowed them to party the night away. They brought in lots of colour with beautiful Protea and tropical foliage and mixed in some fun decoration ideas, including a pink neon sign. This wedding in California is filled with laid back outdoor vibes that I know you are going to love. Big thanks to Alexandra Wallace for the lovely images.
Anelisse and Braden were married on 5th October 2019 at The Casitas Estate in Arroyo Grande, California. ‘We always dreamt of getting married somewhere with Spanish vibes, somewhere quaint and outdoors. The Casitas checked all the boxes. It also was an easy decision after interacting with Pat and Tony, the owners, who were an absolute pleasure to work with and would recommend them to anyone and everyone! Wwe had 150 guests and it took a year to plan.’
Happy Monday everyone and how are you all? Did you all have a fabulous weekend? Mine was fun filled with lots of Christmas activities, a Victorian Christmas Fayre on Saturday, then we put our decorations up. Then on Sunday Dexter and I went on a North Pole adventure to see Santa, which was amazing! I am now feeling super festive. However, I don’t know about you but I feel like things are about to get REALLY busy! So much still to do and so many Christmas jobs to get sorted! So I’m going to try and get on top of it all this week and really crack on with things. We aren’t quite launching into Christmas mode quite yet on the blog, as this week we are travelling around the world celebrating many of the beautiful weddings that have been happening over the past few months, starting off with a trip to Italy for this stunning wedding. Fabio and Catia chose Badia di San Vittore di Cingoli for their celebration and my my is this a beautiful location. They filled it with so many amazing touches, the flowers, the decor, all adding to the beautiful rustic vintage feel this venue has. As for Catia’s pink dress, how dreamy does she look! What a gorgeous day!
Fabio and Catia were married on 13th July 2019 at Badia di San Vittore di Cingoli in Le Marche – Italy. This location is completely surrounded by nature, with the walls of building covered with green leaves. There are gardens and an intimate small wood, inside the building pink stone walls and large vaulted arches. We had 130 guests and it took 10 months to plan.
This afternoon I have a real bridal fashion treat for you, as I am delighted to be sharing with you the brand new collection from London based designer Sanyukta Shrestha. Sanyukta is known for her sustainable bridal design, ‘the epitome of Sanyukta Shrestha’s collections is luxurious organic fair-trade fabrics, fused with flattering shapes, elegance, and individuality.’ Her work is exquisite, totally beautiful and full of personality. She really pushes the bridal fashion envelope and takes her designs to a new level. With this new collection she has taken her influence from autumn and worked with new colours, textures and silhouettes. There really are some magnificent pieces in this collection, I just know you are going to love it.
Happy Friday everyone, how on earth are we at the end of the week already? I hope you have had a good one! This weekend sees the beginning of December, so if you weren’t in the Christmas spirit already then you should be by the end of the weekend! Tomorrow we are all of to a Victorian Christmas Market, at Kelham Island, a venue I have had on the blog a few times as they also host weddings. Then we are putting our tree and decorations up. On Sunday Dexter and I are going off on a Christmas adventure together, for a North Pole Experience. The Christmas jumpers are ready to go, I cannot wait!!! So that’s my Christmas filled weekend, what about you? Before that can all happen I still have one more wedding to share with you and a fabulous bridal style article this afternoon. Tanya and Brendon held a laid back woodland wedding, with an outdoor ceremony and lots of handmade details and decoration. Their day is super cute and filled with so many lovely details. I love the woodland setting and all the rustic touches. Big thanks to Lorna Newman for the photos.
