Bride and groom walking with wedding party

We love it when we are sent a wedding with a super-cool bride and groom, and that’s just what we have for you today. This wedding took place at the George Brown Botanical Gardens in the Australian outback, which created the perfect setting for their laid back, fun wedding.

The groom’s cousin, Josh from Joshua Kane Photography, photographed the wedding, and these pictures just go to show what a difference being relaxed with your photographer can make.

“Our wedding was exactly what we wanted it to be – casual, fun, celebrated with family and friends, delicious food and lots of dancing; our perfect night. We met as 15 and 16 year olds at Matt’s cousin’s party… Matt’s cousin, Josh Wood, was our amazing photographer at our wedding!

“The George Brown Botanical Gardens was a wonderful spot to get married. We picked the Heritage Lawn, so by 4:30pm there was a lot of shade and the backdrop was a beautiful bright red Ginger Tree.

“Our bonbonnieres were little jam jars, and the plum jam was homemade by Matt’s aunty. The jars were decorated by us, and we used them as not only a thank you but also the name card so everyone could find their own seat.

“Josh and Matt spent a lot of time together growing up so having someone we knew as our photographer just made it so comfortable for us. Josh is extremely professional and has this ability to make you feel super-comfortable and confident during the shoot. He flew all the way to Darwin to shoot our wedding and with hardly any time to prepare (and in a totally unfamiliar city!) he produced these amazing shots, kept everyone calm and was so time efficient. I get so many compliments on our photos, I would recommend this guy to everyone! He is an absolute pro and we love him for the amazing gift he has given us, something we can look back on and treasure forever.”

Vintage bride and groom

You are all in for a very special treat today, as we are sharing the pictures from this charming wedding shoot, captured by Krista Mason Photography. This Vintage Picnic and Games shoot has been beautiful styled and crafted to create a simply gorgeous and whimsical result. The styling details, including the drinks stations, flowers, Coke bottles, bowling pins, and the pretty calligraphy tags, are all a feast for our eyes. We hope you enjoy it…

“For our shoot we wanted to do something vintage and whimsical. To achieve this look, we brought together the best team of vendors and found the perfect location, Franklin Canyon Park, to set up an afternoon reception complete with games and picnic-style dining.

“We thought a typewriter might be a fun way for the guests to leave love notes for the bride and groom, and the guests could then place them into our vintage mailbox and we could mail the love notes to the bride and groom after the wedding.

“From the vintage style basket weave to the vintage cake topper, our cake, designed by Fantasy Frosting, was the perfect treat to complete our look. It was placed on a wavy cake stand and sat on top of a vintage soda crate to tie in the Coca Cola station.

“For our beverage station we wanted to do something fun! For brides and grooms out there that love Coca Cola, we decided to create a table featuring Coke, Diet Coke, Cherry Coke, and the like, and then paired it with cherries, lemons and limes. A fun, refreshing drink for a warm, summer day.

The National Wedding Show Catwalk Autumn 2014

Last weekend saw the last of this autumn’s National Wedding Shows across the country. Thousands of brides made their way to the incredible shows in London, Birmingham and Manchester.

We loved every minute of this year’s show, and here is our mood board showcasing our Top Finds at the Autumn 2014 National Wedding Show.

The Wedding Community is always very excited about seeing The National Wedding Show catwalk, and what the bridal wear trends are going to be for the new season. Did you see our live posts on our Facebook page during the catwalk? If you missed them follow the link.

This year we were treated to such beauty on the catwalk… what girl doesn’t love looking at wedding dresses? There was an abundance of lace and sparkle as well as colour – lots of colour; we love the red ketchup suit from Moss Bros.

Which are your favourites?

Tracey Warren - Warble Entertainment Agency

Interview with: Tracey Warren

Company Name: Warble Entertainment

Website: www.warble-entertainment.com

Location / Coverage: UK and Europe

Who are Warble Entertainment Agency?

Warble Entertainment is an agency designed to make finding your perfect wedding entertainment fun and stress free.

Wedding Singer - Warble Entertainment Agency

How did Warble Entertainment Agency get started and how long have you been going?

I set up Warble Entertainment back in late 2006/early 2007 with my husband Matt. We’d just been travelling around the world for 13 months and were ready for a new adventure. We both had relevant degrees and experience in the events and entertainment industry, and decided we enjoyed spending as much time as possible with each other so it would be good to work together. That was eight years ago and we now have a strong team of 11, and I’m pleased to report that we still enjoy working together and feel very lucky to be part of such a lovely industry.

Soul and Motown Band - Warble Entertainment Agency

Why are you called Warble Entertainment Agency?

The word warble means: To sing (a note or song, for example) with trills, runs, or other melodic embellishments. It’s also a fuse of both of our surnames so it just seemed right. Choosing a name was actually one of the hardest parts of setting up the business!

Where do you cover?

Our office (Warble Towers) is based in Cheshire, but we cover the whole of the UK and Europe, regularly book for weddings taking place in France and Italy, and recently booked for events in Poland, Russia and Istanbul.
