Grooms Bas and Lars laughing at their wedding

A Stunning Outdoor Wedding at De Deugdzonde, Belgium

We are delighted to be sharing the pictures of Bas and Lars’ spectacular wedding at De Deugdzonde in Belgium, captured by the very talented David Walters Photography. Bas and Lars had a wonderful outdoor wedding ceremony (then a thunderstorm hit!), with a fabulous reception under a sperry tent.

The couple, along with their wedding planner, created the prettiest wedding styling, with an abundance of bright coloured flowers, ribbons and personalised details. We love the personalised wedding favours – bags filled with little treats, including a hangover kit!

Every picture of Bas and Lars shows the love they have for each other. David Walters did any amazing job capturing the special moments and emotion of the day.

“Bas(tiaan) and I (Lars) met in the dog park in Brussels. He is Belgian and I am German, and we both had spent some years abroad before we both moved – independently – to Brussels (Bas grew up in Gent).

“It was love at first sight for the both of us, as well as our dogs. I brought two vizslas into the family and Bas his Spanish greyhound. A whirlwind romance turned serious very quickly, and we soon moved into a terraced house in the Brussels suburbs. We have never looked back.”

An Amazing Day in the Flemish Countryside

“Our wedding last summer was an amazing day, seeing all our friends from the different places we had lived. Even a giant thunderstorm that blew over most of the dinner tables did not deter us.

“Our wedding took place at De Deugdzonde, a converted farm that now serves as a B&B in the middle of the Flemish countryside.

“We made our own favours. Our friends who are graphic designers put a quick B&L logo together, which we printed onto bags, which were filled with handmade soap, a hangover kit, and personalised M&Ms.

A Great British Seaside Wedding in Bournemouth

Katie and Hugh’s wedding makes us long for summertime! They married at Bournemouth Town Hall and then went to the beach for an amazing British seaside wedding.

If you are thinking of having a seaside inspired wedding; do it! Katie and Hugh really went to town on their seaside wedding theme. They adorned the reception with bunting, beach hut string lights, spades, swimwear, sun hats, and even had a dinghy full of beer!

Guests enjoyed fun games including bingo, and a solo guitarist serenaded them in the sunshine as they sipped gin cocktails and dined on hog roast.

You can see in everyone’s faces how much fun they’re having… resulting in a mad dash into the sea! Enjoy these beautiful pictures by Anna Morgan Photography…

A Nautical Sparkford Hall Wedding with a Festival Vibe

We love a festival wedding, and this nautical Sparkford Hall wedding with a festive vibe is awesome. Sarah and Dan created a relaxed and fun wedding with fab nautical details throughout; the ship knots on the tables, nautical wording thrown in at every opportunity, whale cufflinks and even the master of ceremonies in old fashioned crew wear!

Sack race at festival wedding

For us the best thing about this wedding is the relaxed day everyone had, with the guests enjoying fun and games on the lawn, including a tug of war and sack race.

Our thanks go to Brian Robinson Photography for sharing these amazing pictures.

Rustic, Nautical Theme

“Dan and I work as yacht crew so we spend most of our lives at sea. We therefore don’t get to spend much time with our friends and family. Our Sparkford Hall wedding took place over the whole weekend, which meant we could spend some quality time with our loved ones.”

“We wanted the wedding to reflect our personalities, so we chose a rustic, nautical wedding theme with a fun, festival vibe. There were lots of activities for the kids and, of course, lots and lots of rum for the adults!

A Wedding We’d Like to Go To

“We had a brilliant wedding day. We didn’t want to get sucked into having a day full of the ‘right’ stuff, so instead we decided to have the wedding we’d most like to go to. It took a lot of hard work and effort, but it was so much fun. We haven’t laughed (or cried) that much in years!

A Beautiful Summer Colshaw Hall Wedding

Bride and groom kissing after Colshaw Hall wedding

Lily and Oliver’s Colshaw Hall wedding is simply stunning. They created such an elegant summer wedding, making the most of stunning summer blooms for the bridal bouquets and floral arrangements, and the natural summer light that lit up their beautiful venue.

We love Lily’s dress with its delicate lace back, and wait until you see Oliver and the groomsmen’s cool suits.

If you are looking for inspiration for your evening reception then you will love their wedding party! A photo booth, casino tables and a sparkling dance floor; what more could you want?

We hope you love these pictures by Jess Yarwood Photography as much as we do…

“We met at school in 1995 where we became best friends. I then went to university and travelled around Europe working for Thomas Cook. Oliver went to America to undertake a football scholarship and then went on to travel around Australia.

“However, we remained close friends and would often meet to catch up. Then in 2014 Oliver moved in with me as my house mate following a break up. It was from here that we realised that we were more than just friends, and began dating in June 2014. Oliver proposed in Las Vegas in September 2015.
