HOW TO NOT LET A HURRICANE RUIN YOUR WEDDING DAY: REBECCA & DAMIAN

Carnival Wedding Balloon Heart Arch

So what do you do if a hurricane suddenly hits your wedding venue just weeks after you have decided on it. Well you up and move it all to your backyard of course! After Hurricane Sandy demolished Rebecca and Damian seaside venue they decided to renovate their whole backyard and host the wedding there instead. Pretty extreme some might think, but I agree with this couple when they say it will be a memory that they get to keep forever!

A Laid-back & Handmade, Backyard Wedding: Sarah & Mark

A Handmade & Laid-back Backyard Wedding in a Tipi (28)

I realise it is now autumn and the days of tipi’s and garden parties are just a distant memory, but today’s wedding is just too darn pretty to not share right away! Firstly I adore the bridesmaids two pieces! The blush toned maxi skirts and lace tops are a gorgeous combination, something I could definitely see myself wearing. Second the brides 1920’s inspired gown is totally dreamy, it shimmers from head to toe and I am in love with the statement sleeve!

It was all about imagination for Sarah and Mark, two talented creative business owners who were passionate about injecting their own personality and talents into their day. To reflect this they  pretty much handmade all their details including the stationery, decor and favours with a little help from friends and family! Lets not also forget to mention the delicious array of handmade beverages from lavender lemonade and ‘Sham-pagne’ to every girls favourite – lots and lots of Pimms!

Over to Sarah to tell you more…

A Small Country Wedding Planned in Just 4 Months: Vicky & Paul

A Small English Country Garden Wedding

Woo hoo it’s Saturday and in my never ending bid to try and slow down the approach of winter I wanted to share this summery english garden wedding with you all today. Now I am not usually one for pastels but the decor in this wedding is so darn cute. What shocked me the most is that Vicky and Paul created this whole wedding in just 4 months and on a serious budget. The amazing Cake that you are about to feast your eyes on was made by the brides mum, the florals are all handpicked garden flowers and the bunting was so sewn by Vicky’s aunt. We best not forget to mention that the groom played a massive part in this fun-filled budget wedding too, creating his own DIY photobooth and card box. This is one very talented family!

Here is Vicky to tell us more…

The Rustic Garden Wedding of Childhood Sweethearts; Lucy & Ryan

Watt_Dessington_iZO_Photography_1344_low

Ryan moved to Australia in 2007 and became a boarder at the same school as Lucy, she spotted him on his first day at school and thought that he was unlike anyone she had ever met… Ryan eventually plucked up the courage to ask Lucy out on a “year 11 trip” while on the bus, she thought he was going to say that he wasn’t interested in her but he was actually trying to ask her out! Everything was ok once they held hands, and the rest is history…

A Rustic Garden Party: Chelsea & Chris

Chelsea and Chris get married!

Chelsea and Chris married at their ‘family’ barn in Vermont. Despite living thousands of miles away (the couple actually live in sunny California) they were able to plan their perfect wedding in just 6 months surrounded by close family friends whilst enjoying good food and excellent wine. Now this sounds like my type of wedding!

I asked Chelsea to tell me more…

A Shabby Chic Champagne Brunch Wedding: Jeannine & Gib

Thibaut_Shellenberger_Lizard_Nickel_Photography_GibJeannine317_low

When a bride describes her wedding as ‘shabby chic’ and ‘ Anthropologie style’ you know you are going to be in for a treat! Lets start with Jeannine’s absolutely gorgeous dress! In my opinion we don’t see enough mini wedding dresses, this beautiful lace number has the most amazing low back and bow detail and I am just so so so so in love with it!

Next there’s the stunning DIY decor, mason jars filled with homemade goodies, an antique armoire filled with sweet treats, recycled window panes for a seating plan and a cute childs bar set up on the back of a truck. Mix that with lawn games for entertainment and tractor rides and I think you have the recipe for one pretty darn fun wedding day.

Lastly, I need to congratulate Gib for growing a moustache that even Yosemite Sam would be proud of. I had to show Mr T, who is forever trying to grow a decent beard and I think I might have just caught a glimmer of moustache envy – is there such a thing?

Photographer Liz filled us in on the details of the day…
