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 DIY Backyard Wedding Filled with Fabulous Florals: Jen & Dan

A DIY Backyard Wedding Filled with Fabulous Florals 1

I love the idea of a backyard wedding. For most it will be the place where either the bride or groom will have spent most of their lives growing up and will hold lots of precious memories, there is a good chance it will continue to remain in the family for a long time to come so what better place to make more memories and mark the start of your new life with your significant other.

Of course holding your wedding outdoors does come with some amount of concern, for Jen & Dan the main worry was the looming rainclouds overhead, but it seems mother nature was on their side and the rain held off for the entire day.

The floral elements in this wedding have real wow factor, I can’t stop swooning over the floral arch and the aisle is lined with the prettiest array of flowers. The bouquets are filled with pastel coloured wild flowers and succulents, and there is even a tandem bike used to display more floral beauties giving this wedding a real shabby chic element.

Be prepared to fall in love…

A Purple Wedding Dress For a Backyard Wedding – Tina & Jared

A Purple Wedding Dress For a Backyard Wedding 1

If there is one thing I adore, then it is a colourful wedding dress and it is because of this I am so excited to share today’s real wedding with you, as the bride wore purple! Tina’s love of classic movies and vintage style was the inspiration behind her beautiful bespoke gown, which I can’t help but feel has Marilyn Monroe-esque quality about it.

Tina and Jared’s wedding has to be one of the most personal weddings we have ever featured on this blog. The couple chose to hold the ceremony at 100 year old home, filled with vintage furniture from their loved ones and complete with memories. Now that is something really special dont you think?

I also love Tina’s honesty about planning her wedding, although it is meant to be the happiest times of your life, planning a wedding doesn’t always come without stresses and worries so it is refreshing to hear someone being so open about their own planning fears.

Although I can honestly say Tina needn’t of worried – this is one hell of a beautiful wedding!
