  • TIFFANY AND MADISYN’S PROPOSAL IN VERONA

    Today I have a very special shoot for you – Tiffany and Madisyn got engaged at the Romeo and Juliet’s famous house in Verona! The one with THAT balcony! Andrea Tran was there to photograph it and is now sharing the shoot with us.

    HOW DID YOU MEET?

    We used to work together then we became good friends. After about 3 years of knowing each other, we started dating!

    TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL

    It happened at the most romantic place in the world on Valentineʼs Day at Casa Di Giulietta (Julietteʼs house) in front of her balcony. Tiffany wanted the proposal to be unique and romantic. Her mission was accomplished by making sure it was a complete surprise. Andrea caught beautiful shots of the moment!

  • MAX & DARREN’S WINTER SPECTACLE WEDDING

    DO YOU WANT TO TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL?

    It was New Years Eve and Darren was going to propose in front of friends but chickened out. As we were walking home he had the ring in his pocket and asked me then and there.

    WHAT WAS THE THEME AND INSPIRATION FOR YOUR WEDDING?

    The wedding day was on 1st December 2017, this was the day we met back in 2009. So we had a winter wedding, we didn’t want a Christmas themed wedding so went with winter.

  • Richard & Ricardo’s relaxed London city wedding

    DO YOU WANT TO TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL?

    It just sort of happened. Ricky kept saying “when we get married”… Richard just went with it with a “whatever, whenever” attitude. And then we started talking about it properly, decided to do it for real and told our families. So no real proposal.

    WHAT WAS THE THEME AND INSPIRATION FOR THE DAY?

    No real theme, although we did use peacock feathers as button holes and had a peacock coloured cake (blues and greens). Wanted something different!

  • Anji & Dera’s facetime couple shoot

    Today I have something completely diffreent for you. Anji and Dera got photographed remotely by Kinga Leftska and I think that even if it’s so far away from what you can usually see on GWB, it’s also so perfect right now, in this reality we live in.

    HOW DID YOU MEET?

    Anji: We met 9ish years ago at an NAACP meeting at our university, SHSU! There were no LGBTQ+ organizations on campus at the time and we became fast friends.

    Dera: We reconnected again when Anji’s then-boyfriend came over to show her off to his best friend/my roommate at the time. WHEW — Scandal!

    DO YOU WANT TO TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL AND WEDDING?

    Dera: I planned a surprise engagement for Anji in Venice, Italy. It was just our first international trip together, her first time in Italy and the airline lost our luggage!! Not the best start to our trip.

    We stepped off the train in Venice and started “exploring,” but in actuality, I was trying to find Kinga. Working with a Google Earth picture for the meet-up location and my Nigerian-Italian cousin as our guide/translator. The specific meet-up time was sunset and we were officially lost! Anji, on the other hand, was (clueless) getting hangry and wanted to stop to have a picnic with some sandwiches she bought.

  • VICKY AND SIAN’S FUN OUTDOOR DEWSALL COURT WEDDING

    DO YOU WANT TO TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL?

    Vicky made the proposal to Sian at Christmas, using Ralph the naughty elf who played daily tricks on her (From creating a snow scene in our living room – inclusive of giant polar bear, sticking 100’s of sticky notes on her car to destroying some of her favourite tops) until the final day where he presented the ring and Vicky stumbled through her proposal.

    HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING STYLE IN ONE SENTENCE?

    Outdoors, chilled festival type vibe with lots of personal touches.

    WHAT WAS THE THEME AND INSPIRATION?

    Festival meets boho chic! The inspiration was blending Vicky’s love of old world and rustic charm with Sian’s natural eye for immaculate detail of femininity. There were special items for loved ones no longer with us, a jazz band and a children’s entertainment tent – We also had family rounder’s on the evening before. We fell utterly in love with Dewsall the moment we got there, there is a magic and a charm here I have never felt before. Between the stylish Wainhouse barn for our evening, the beautiful outdoors ceremony and grounds – It was a magical environment to work with.

    DID YOU STYLE IT YOURSELF?

    From start to finish – We had a scrap book and every detail was captured!

  • MATTHEW AND BRYANT’S GIBRALTAR ELOPEMENT

    Even if you can’t have your amazing big wedding, you can still have the time of your life marrying your other half!

    HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING STYLE IN ONE SENTENCE?

    Rustic and burly.

    WHAT WAS THE THEME AND INSPIRATION?

    We had originally planned a Spanish inspired wedding for July 2020 in San Francisco. Lots of yellows, reds, and blues… with Talavera tiles. However, COVID decided to change our plans. We postponed our wedding and planned an elopement in Gibraltar. Our style is simple.. we love jeans and leather. So we chose a minimal, rustic theme for our elopement.

  • SOPHIE AND ASHLEA’S RELAXED SPRING WEDDING

    Hello! Today it’s the spring in the air.. at least here on the blog! Lovely wedding with two brides with the biggest smiles ever! Thanks to Shane Webber Photography for sharing this wedding with us!

    DO YOU WANT TO TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL?

    Ash proposed to me on November 26th 2016. We were decorating our Christmas tree and sheʼd suspended the ring inside a bauble but I hung it on the tree without noticing; she then kept staring at it with heightened levels of anxiety until I spotted it!

    WHAT WAS THE THEME AND INSPIRATION FOR YOUR BIG DAY?

    Weʼre both teachers so had a theme of books; each table was named after a novel we love and we had confetti made from the books themselves.

  • LAURA & DANICA’S LIVERPOOL WEDDING

    WHAT WAS THE THEME AND INSPIRATION?

    Rustic/hippy theme. A lot of pastel colours and flowers. We styled it ourselves with help from our florist.

    TELL US ABOUT THE CEREMONY AND RECEPTION LOCATIONS. WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THE VENUE AND WHAT DID YOU LIKE ABOUT IT?

    For the ceremony it was the 60 Hope St. and the iconic door made it for us! Their floral displays around their front door made it an easy choice.
    We had reception at the Siren. It was a small and not a well known location. It was very intimate meaning we could have few guests who we really wanted to share our big day with. We loved the rooftop terrace and the view of the city.
