Hope you’ll enjoy this perfectly styled shoot, filled with beautiful details and gorgeous landscapes.
An intimate atmosphere, boho chic details, two men in a small countryside in Abruzzo and the creativity of an all-female team. The shoot took place in Santo Stefano di Sessanio a small countryside in Italy hit by the earthquake in 2009. After this event, the area was bought by a Swedish manager who fell in love with Abruzzo.
This wonderful side of Abruzzo became a diffuse hotel, the project is known as Sextantio. The aim of the project is to bring back new life to this small countryside. With our shoot we tried to focus on the space; indoors and outdoors, nature and man. Our models are a real-life couple. The boho chic inspiration links every detail of the pictures while remarking on the elegance of nature and love.
Blogs, directories and websites are great but nothing beats chatting to wedding suppliers face to face and getting inspiration in person. There is plenty of wedding fairs and events out there and I’d like to share the good ones with you. Organisers of The Unconventional Wedding Festival got in touch and sent us some details so check it out.
Taking place at Stanford Hall, a stunning Grade 1 listed William & Mary House in the heart of the Midlands on 11 and 12 May 2019, The Unconventional Wedding Festival is a new breed of wedding fair designed to cater for the latest trends in the wedding industry.
Unconventional in every sense of the word, The Unconventional Wedding Festival is aimed at couples who don’t want their wedding to be the same as everyone else’s and would rather stand out and be a flamingo amongst a flock of pigeons.
With a growing number of couples looking for ways to add their own unique touches to their wedding and create something that truly reflects their personalities, we have created a wedding fair with a difference which aims to not only inspire the modern couple and connect them with suppliers who can help them make their dream wedding a reality, but also have a lot of fun in the process.
And it’s not just the wide array of alternative and unique suppliers and performers we’ve pulled together that makes The Unconventional Wedding Festival so different, but the set up as well.
Round Chapel is a gorgeous venue in Clapton, Hackney, and location of Skanda and Paul’s incredibly colourful wedding. It was shared with us by their wedding planner Revelry Events.
HOW DID YOU MEET?
We knew of each other through work. We first got to know each other properly when our paths crossed in a bar. I thought it was all going really only for him to invite his then flatmate over to join us so I naturally assumed that it was going nowhere but (after some chasing) it ended up getting to, well, this…

5 Reasons Why More and More Couples are Getting Hitched in Portugal
Let’s start this article by saying I am biased. As a destination wedding planner in Portugal, of course I want to share the merits of this gorgeous country and what it has to offer. However as 1 in 5 UK couples are now considering getting married abroad according to Destination Weddings Magazine, there is a clear reason why there has been an increase in interest in getting married in Europe and particularly in Portugal, which has seen a sharp spike in its wedding industry from the international market over the past 5 years. This is not by accident dear reader, and in this piece I’m going to share with you, what is tempting couples from all over the world to tie the knot in sunny Portugal. Speaking of which…

Probably stating the obvious here but bear with me, I might surprise you. Portugal is not a sun-all-round-winter-does-not-exist kind of place, so be mindful of anyone who sells it to you that way. Portugal is not all sunshine and rainbows and should never pretend to be. What it does offer is bright, temperate days in the Spring, hot, long days in the Summer and often warm, sunny days in the early Autumn too. For weddings, it’s the ideal evening soiree destination as the warm Summer evenings are great for late ceremonies and dancing into the early hours under the stars.
The blog post today is brought to you by Shropshire Petals who provides real biodegradable delphinium and wildflower petals handpicked and handpacked on their Shropshire Farm. Personally I believe there’s never too much confetti, and if you want to do something a bit different than just a classic shot leaving the ceremony, here’s a few alternative ideas.
The confetti toss is a tradition we all know and love. It’s that dreamy romantic moment on your wedding day, typically just after you have said, “I do” where friends and family shower you with beautiful, delicate confetti. As you are an individual and unique couple, why not capture something a little more fun for your special day? Natural petal confetti growers, Shropshire Petals share their alternatives to a classic confetti shot for your big day.
A confetti shot with a bang
The newest confetti trend has to be Confetti Cannons. They are fun and exciting to use; with a quick twist, out explodes a confetti blast to cover you during your confetti moment. They are fun and exciting to use and can fire up to 10 metres.
Set up a group shot with the bridal party and twist a few Confetti Cannons for a huge eruption of beautiful petals. Filled with your choice of natural petal confetti, as petals are released, they will flutter down gently giving your photographer plenty of time to capture some fantastic photographs. After the initial blast, have fun and be silly in the falling petals for a spectacular confetti moment.
A group affair
The confetti moment doesn’t have to be just for the newly married couple. Add some of your own uniqueness and personality by including props and photo frames for some alternative and fun confetti shots. Order plenty of confetti to ensure you have enough for several group shots to include different members of the bridal party and your guests. Why not supply confetti alongside a photo booth and see how creative your guests can be!
These two beautiful girls who live in Hong Kong decided to get married in UK where they met. Here’s their beautiful spring engagement shoot with Nina Pang.
TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET
We first met each other at bus stop at the University campus when we both were freshers (actually we thought of having photo shoot at the same bus stop that we met! haha). We studied different majors but our lectures were in the same campus, so we often bumped into each other between lectures. We haven’t got really close until we became flatmates in the year after and went to a part time job together. Since then, it has been 10 years that we are with each other. Time flies!
Hello! Today we are travelling to Leeds to see modern stylish wedding in The Faversham. Phil and Daniel are such a fun couple, you can really feel their amazing spirit through photos by Matt Simm (and I seriously need to hear more about that note they sent to a friend!!).
TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET
The short version is we moved next door to each other. The long version is that we knew of one another at uni but ran with different crowds. We were both dating other people too. It wasn’t till after uni that both those relationships ended around the same time and that’s when we became neighbours by chance. We bonded over sending a mutual friend a threatening note made up of newspaper cuttings (see 1992’s The Bodyguard for the reference)
Yes, I know it’s almost 2019. Yes, I realise that Pantone came up with the new colour for that year. Yes I know Ultra Violet is an old news. But since I don’t really care about what Pantone says and I like doing things my way, today we are having an Ultra Violet styled shoot. Enjoy!
We featured a lesbian couple, as we all feel too often same-sex couples are under represented in the wedding industry-which can still be quite old fashioned and traditional! So as suppliers, we wanted to support gay couples looking to plan their wedding.
Last real wedding of 2018!! How is it end of December already?! We are ending this year with Clare and Corrina and their lovely and fun wedding at The Elvetham. Photographed by Helen Sarah Photography.
TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET
Dating in the gay world is like finding a job, you have to do it online or get referred, as we had no mutual friends. We only had the one option which was online dating which soon lead to an awkward first date in Nando’s and the rest was history.
NOW ABOUT THE BIG DAY! WHAT WAS THE THEME AND INSPIRATION? How DID THE DAY LOOK LIKE?
The inspiration came from things we both enjoy together and things that are important in our lives. We had a rollercoaster themed wedding cake because we both have a passion for rollercoasters, the bigger the better. The signs were written in American Horror Story font because it’s something we both enjoy watching together, amongst other things we decided to ditch the traditional flowers on the wedding breakfast tables and go with chilli plants because Clare has a passion for chillies!
