Bridal party throwing confetti in the air

A Wedding at The Grounds of Alexandria

This wedding is super cool, super stylish, super relaxed and best of all, super fun! We have never featured a wedding with a piñata before, but we now feel that every wedding should have one! Kirstie and Emilio’s wedding at The Grounds of Alexandria is just amazing (can you tell we love it?!).

The wedding reception looks so relaxed and fun; the long banqueting tables where guests feasted on the most delicious looking food set the scene for the relaxed atmosphere. The incredible hanging baskets, beautiful floral centrepieces and cute pot plants were the perfect decor for the day, not to mention the really cool ‘I Got You Babe’ illuminated sign that made a great backdrop for the pictures.

We adore Kirstie’s Oscar de la Renta wedding dress. It’s so simple, feminine and stylish, and it is complemented so well with the bridesmaids’ beautiful silver-grey dresses.

Lara Hotz was the lady who captured this wedding, and her pictures tell such a beautiful story of Kirstie and Emilio’s fabulous day.

The Strongest Friendship

“Emilio and I met in our first lecture at uni. I was sitting behind him, he turned around and started a conversation, and the rest is history. We got along so well and spent so much time together. I think that’s the reason we make such a great team – our relationship is founded on the strongest friendship.

A Handmade, Vintage Styled Wedding in Lancashire

Jessica and Antony had a clear vision of how they wanted their wedding day, and they created the most beautiful vintage styled wedding. Every aspect of this wedding was handmade or upcycled, which saved them a fortune (although it meant many weekends rummaging at car boot sales!).

We love the decor; the cute handmade bunting with gypsophila between the flags at the entrance to the church looks amazing, and the abundance of pretty vintage crockery and jugs used as the table decor and the beautiful handmade seating plan in the old frame all bring this vintage styled wedding together perfectly.

Jessica’s wedding dress is just stunning and looks incredible with the beaded vintage style cape. The beautiful bridesmaid dresses in sage and blush pink really complemented her dress too.

If you are planning a vintage wedding then you’ll get loads of inspiration from Jessica and Antony’s day, captured perfectly by Delicious Photography…

Handmade or Upcycled

“All our decor was either handmade or upcycled, and most was a result of my mother in law’s creative eye and amazing skills. I knew exactly what I wanted and was very particular about it being perfect. We didn’t have a big budget but luckily we had time, so most weekends were spend in charity shops, goose clearance shops and hundreds of trips to various car boot sales throughout Lancashire!”

Emotional

“A lady who used to own a florists in Ramsbottom arranged my flowers. They were perfect – exactly what I wanted. When she turned up with the flowers she thought I didn’t like them due to my overly emotional response. However, that was due to my chief bridesmaid having just given me a beautiful gift of two pin on brooches for my flowers, with a picture of my gran and nana who are no longer with us.

A Colourful, Mexican Themed Wedding at Tohono Chul Park

This Mexican themed wedding in the Arizona desert is totally amazing and unique! Incredibly, Reagan and Ryan planned their fabulous wedding at Tohono Chul Park in just six months. We haven’t featured a wedding in the desert before, but it’s such a spectacular, natural backdrop and really sets the scene for this Mexican inspired wedding.

We love all the colourful handmade details and pretty little Mexican touches that add to the beautiful styling of the day – and wait until you see their wedding cake…

A big thank you to Plain Jane Photography for sending us this incredible wedding.

Natural Beauty and Charm

“We wanted to get married in the desert. Like, IN the desert. We were originally planning a backyard wedding at my mom’s where the ceremony would be in the gorgeous natural desert near their house. However, the logistics of throwing a party that large at their home started to get overwhelming. Then I remembered visiting Tohono Chul as a child, and I’d read so many testimonials on how beautiful the park is now. The natural beauty and charm was exactly what we were looking for.”

An ‘Anything Goes’ Aircraft Hangar Wedding

Wow, wow, wow! Oh how we love everything about this wedding! Gab and Cory planned their spectacular aircraft hangar wedding at Bromesberrow Place in Gloucestershire in just five months.

It’s not very often you see a wedding with bridesmaids in emerald green, but it’s so pretty, fresh and gorgeous that we are pretty sure you are going to want to, erm, copy this style!

Everything about this wedding is fun; the colours, the decor, the bridal party style, the entertainment and, most importantly, the couple. That’s why we love this wedding so much – Gab and Cory really put their hearts, souls and personalities into making their wedding so fabulous.

Huge thanks to the very talented Tom Leishman of Picture My Love for sharing the amazing pictures from this wedding…

Full of Memories

“Our wedding theme was ‘anything goes’. Any colour was welcome, and the more flowers, ribbon, and bottles, the better!

“We knew we wanted our wedding to be at Bromesberrow Place. We spent a lot of time there in the first year or two of our relationship because my mum and I lived in part of the manor, where my Mum worked. The grounds and gardens are so meaningful and full of memories for us.

“We loved the vibe of the aircraft hangar and that it was a blank canvas for us to create a colourful world of our own. We wanted a giant picnic with everyone we love, with no guest limitation, unlimited food and drinks and dancing and happiness! Our day was spontaneous and controlled by a megaphone, used to herd the large crowd of guests to each location!”

Couple kissing with leaves falling around them

An Intimate Forest Wedding in the Czech Republic

Jitka and Honza didn’t want a big wedding with the whole shebang. Instead they chose to marry under the falling autumn leaves in an intimate forest wedding. Just their daughter, best man and Jitka’s best friend Eliška, who was also their wedding photographer, were there.

Jitka loves a bit of rock so opted to wear a leather jacket and boots with her wedding dress, which looked amazing. Her matching bridal bouquet and floral headband completed the look perfectly.

After the ceremony the couple and their bridal party went to a wonderful restaurant, Drmalská Myslivna, located in a picturesque valley at the foot of the Ore Mountains. Here they enjoyed a fabulous lunch set on a woodland styled table decorated with moss, twigs and conkers.

We love how intimate their forest wedding ceremony was. Who needs a church packed full of people when you can have those nearest and dearest to you under the trees.

We adore these pictures by Eliška of Khiria.

Enough Company to Have Fun With

“We decide to get married alone in the forest because we simply felt that big weddings aren’t made for us. I was in the 7th month of pregnancy and I just wanted to spend the day with my best friend, our daughter, Honza and his best man. It was enough company to have fun with.
