• 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.

  • STYLED SHOOT: FLORAL EXPLOSION

    Today we have a very modern styled shoot with some amazing florals photographed by Esme Whiteside.

    This is real couple Sam and Adam at countryside wedding venue Bashall Barn in the North West. We wanted something really stylish, but still relaxed and inspiring.
    We opted for a more colourful suit for Sam, paired with a floral shirt and something more formal and elegant for Adam, to suit their personalities.

  • 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.

  • Matthew and Sam’s Southwold beach engagement shoot

    Today we are going to take you for a seaside walk with Matt and Sam beautifully photographed by Amanda Karen Photography.

    TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET 

    Sam and I went to school together – with Sam joining my school’s sixth form college. We have been together since that time, and 10 years later we are just about to move in to our first home together (before getting on with the wedding planning)!

  • NATHANIEL AND MATTHEW’S BLACK TIE SUMMER BALL WEDDING

    WOULD YOU LIKE TO TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL?

    Matt and I went to Peru in 2016 with another couple. During our trip to Machu Picchu Matt proposed on the summer solstice. It was really special as it was the day of our 10th anniversary.

    HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING DAY IN ONE SENTENCE?

    The best day of our lives

  • GEMMA AND VICTORIA’S CYCLAMEN PURPLE WINDSOR WEDDING

    TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET

    “You’ve Got Mail”, just how Kathleen Kelly and Joe Fox met, we met online. Although with much faster internet speeds and no dial up tones! We met on a gay dating website, chatted for a few weeks before making the decision to meet up. We met up for dinner at a local Caribbean restaurant & the rest was history! 

    NOW ABOUT THE BIG DAY! WHAT WAS THE THEME AND INSPIRATION? HOW DID THE DAY LOOK LIKE? DID YOU STYLE IT YOURSELF?

    Our wedding was very much planned round the main venue, The Guild Hall in Windsor. This has special associations for Vickie’s family as her Great Grandfather was the Mayor of Windsor in 1968 & her sister also got married there. 

    Once we had the main venue booked everything else fell into place. One of our favourite local pubs to Windsor, The George, was the perfect place to have our Wedding reception. It had a little barn for the reception and a private outside area with a Teepee! On top of being a very convenient location to The Guild Hall, the food is amazing so we knew we would have a fabulous meal. 

    Our wedding theme was based on our favourite colour, purple and Vickie’s favourite flower, Cyclamens. The table centre pieces, Bridesmaid dresses & table decorations were all based on these. The rest of the décor was based on a rustic feel as the barn is quite rustic. 

    All of the decorations were either made by us or by family members. 

  • BEN AND PAUL’S MODERN GEOMETRIC WEDDING

    Today we are joining Ben and Paul and their super stylish wedding photographed and shared with us by Mini & Me Photography.

    TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET

    I (Paul) saw Ben on a mutual friends Facebook page, casually mentioned to our friend that I thought Ben was good looking and was he single?.. Then our friend put us in touch and the rest is history. 

    NOW ABOUT THE BIG DAY! WHAT WAS THE THEME AND INSPIRATION? HOW DID THE DAY LOOK LIKE? DID YOU STYLE IT YOURSELF?

    We were keen to have a masculine wedding, something different and modern. We didn’t start with a plan nor theme it developed in time looking at Pinterest and Instagram for inspiration. I (Paul) started buying ‘stuff’ I’d see something that fitted into the 5 colours we’d chosen; Navy, Black, White, Grey and Silver (a lot of colours really) anyway every month I’d add to the collection which then started to take on a geometric theme, which started from our stationary. Somehow it all came together on the day and looked amazing we received so many lovely comments about the details.

  • LIZ AND JO’S COLORFUL ‘SAN JUNIPERO’ LONDON WEDDING

    TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL

    We were on holiday in the Philippines and staying in a beautiful island resort. Liz had come to meet me after I had completed my medical elective in a hospital there. During the day, we had been island hopping and Liz seemed a bit ‘off’ and keen to get back to our treehouse after. When we got back she asked me to wait in another room as she had a ‘surprise’ for me – I assumed this would be a gift for completing medical school! When I came out, she had laid out photos of us from when we first met to the present day leading out to the balcony where she made a beautiful speech and popped the question!

    NOW ABOUT THE BIG DAY! WHAT WAS THE THEME AND INSPIRATION?

    Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror episode ‘San Junipero’ – and generally we wanted to achieve relaxed house party vibes.

    As two women getting married, we also went out of our way to remember and recognise the women that inspire us. This included a photo montage of women who couldn’t make it (from Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin to various dead relatives), table names inspired by our dream dinner party guests (mostly female!) and a friend’s speech which closed with the epic final words of Morgan Lloyd Malcolmʼs Emilia.

    DID YOU STYLE IT YOURSELF?

    Yes, with help from talented family and friends.
