Ashley and Joey held their destination wedding on the beautiful beaches of Costa Rica, surrounded by their closest family and friends. After getting engaged there a year prior the couple thought it would be the perfect place to get married as it represented the very things they hold so dearly adventure, peace, love and positivity.

I asked Ashley to tell us more…

Be prepared for some pretty breathtaking photography guys!

A Locally Sourced Wedding with a Surprise Pregnancy, the Saronic Gulf of Greece – Anna & Philipp

This wedding completely captured my heart, I love how Anna & Philipp didn’t want to pollute by getting decorations delivered from somewhere else so instead they locally sourced products from the island they married on, using olive as the symbol of their wedding because olive is a symbol of abundance, glory and peace. I also love how Anna’s second wedding dress showed off her new baby bump!  The photos captured by Anna Roussos are absolutely breathtaking…

A Latin Inspired Beach Wedding: Jessabelle & Angel

I adore every bride and groom that we feature on Bespoke Bride but every now and again there is one couple that comes along that you feel an instant connection with. Jessabelle and Angel are certainly one of those couples and they really touched my heart. Jessabelle spoke about her wedding with such passion, you can tell that every ounce of thought and love had gone into making her wedding a reflection of their love, their traditions and their roots.

I was blown away by Jessabelles determination to hold her dream wedding by the sea no matter what was thrown at her, whether it be budget or vendor cancellations, she was a real problem solver and is a brilliant example of how a little imagination can go a long way.

Last but not least it would be awfully rude of me not mention that Jessabelle and Angel were looking forward to being joined by their best man and best friends at their ceremony but at the last minute they were suddenly deployed and sadly could not make it to share the couples special day. Jessabelle spoke of how especially important it was to them that these friends although not present were remembered and supported and so they said a prayer for them at the service to honour the important part they would still play in their day.

I asked Jessabelle to tell me all about it…

An Intimate Rustic Beach Wedding: Ryan & Amber

An Intimate Rustic Beach Wedding 1

Today’s stunning wedding comes all the way from the beaches of California. It has to be one of my favourite ever weddings we have featured on this blog and you will soon see why, the details of this wedding although very simple are so swoon-worthy!

Ryan and Amber chose to get married on  Stinson Beach, they opted for a small intimate ceremony with just close family and friends and the beach provided the privacy this couple so desired.

There was a huge emphasis on family in their wedding which I really loved – Amber wore her great grandmothers vintage wedding ring and Ryan’s father officiated which I think is wonderfully special. They worked very hard to create lots of personal touches with Ryan creating the stationery and favours and Amber putting together her own bouquet.

The beautiful photography was courtesy of Crystal Lynn Photography who has done the most amazing job of capturing the natural simplicity of this wedding.

A Travel Themed Destination Wedding – Jose & Cynthia

Jose and Cynthia’s passion for travelling the world was their inspiration for a destination wedding in breathtaking Santorini. The stunning scenery surrounding the venue made for the most beautiful wedding photography. Seriously these images look like they should be on the pages of OK or Hello – hats of to Vangelis Photography!

I am super impressed with this couples endeavours to share their personalities and passions with their family. Jose and Cynthia were joined by their closest friends and family as they turned their one day event into a twelve day event, stopping off in locations such as Rome, Athens, Monaco and Cannes before stopping in Santorini to get wed.

Whilst on their travels the couple picked up memorabilia from some of their favourite places, as favours for their guests which I think is a beautiful final touch to this travel themed destination wedding. Here is Cynthia to tell you more…

Angela and Tyler’s beach wedding is simply stunning, it will have you dreaming of long hot summers by the beach for days to come.

I love how the beautiful pinks, peaches and creams pop so well against the white sand and clear blue sea. As Angela describes the beautiful house on the beach was perfect for the intimate setting the couple had chosen and their first ‘non-look first look’ will make your heart melt.

Photographer Crystal George has done such an amazing job of capturing this couples day, the shots of the couple at sunset have really captured this couples personality and relationship with each other, they really are very touching.

A Shabby Chic Styled Destination Wedding In Ibiza – Michelle & Mark

Ibiza Wedding

December is finally here and I am already wishing it were summer although todays wedding brings me a little closer to the dream of being somewhere warm and sunny.

Michelle and Mark were married at Cala Codolar in Ibiza over looking the rock of Es Vedra. Just from the photographs of the beautiful views and surroundings you can tell that the location was breathtaking.

Here to ease you into the week is Michelle with all the details on her stunning wedding day…

Ibiza wedding

We chose the Elixir Shore Club as our venue. The moment we visited, the place took our breaths away, with it’s simple, effortless, shabby chic style and view of the rock of Es Vedra.  The club has a marquee style outdoor area for dinner and an indoor bar area for drinks and dancing which made the evening flow perfectly. We have travelled to Ibiza for almost 6 years and have seen a lot of the island and had spent 2 weeks previous travelling to plenty of possible wedding locations and venues but our search was over as soon as we found the Elixir.
