Colourful Summer Fete Wedding: Sam & Sarah

fun_esmemai0140WEB

Sam and Sarah were married at Hornington Manor Farm, York in August. They hired their venue for five whole days so they could have a week-long celebration with their loved ones. “From the moment Sam asked me to marry her we were adamant that we wanted a really personalised wedding which was about us as a couple”, began Sarah. “We wanted to do all the food, drink and decoration ourselves and to involve our closest family and friends in all of the preparations. We wanted our guests to feel like they were coming to our house for our wedding which we were able to do as we rented the house for five days. A summer fete theme emerged as we planned lots of activities for people to do during the day.”

“We had the legal ceremony on the Thursday before and pondered for ages about what we were going to wear”, she continued. “On a dog walk one day with Sarah’s parents we decided on a Hawaiian theme. So off 10 of us went to the registry office (myself and Sam in an old black beetle) dressed in Hawaiian shirts. When we returned to Hornington Manor we had a big Hawaiian themed BBQ party where all of our guests dressed up too!”

Minimalist Brooklyn Inspired Wedding in Ohio: Marni & James

marnijames-wedding-144

Marni and James wanted to bring their love of the big apple to their Ohio wedding. They kept things minimalistic in terms of décor, but everything that choose oozed New York cool. “I think the inspiration and theme for our wedding go hand in hand”, explained the bride. “We wanted minimalist chic. We also wanted it to feel like we were in Brooklyn, where we now live, recreated in Marietta, Ohio.”

“Getting married in Ohio saves us a lot of money. The prices there are probably 25-30% of the cost of getting married in New York City. While we really wanted a Brooklyn wedding in many ways, we ultimately decided that it would be easier for our families to attend if we had it in Ohio. That was the most important thing. Plus, we knew that we could splurge on parts of the wedding that were important to us if we had it in Ohio. I never would have been able to afford two designer dresses, for example, if we had gotten married in New York!”

Thursday Treats: Signing off Issue One!

issue 1 sneak peek1

It’s just one week until Christmas and I got the BEST gift of all yesterday. I went to Giraffe Media HQ, the publishers of my new magazine, to sign everything off and send the first issue to print! It was very The Devil Wars Prada but much more friendly… I arrived and was presented with ‘The Book’ – a mock up of how the magazine will look in a binder. Flipping through each page made it seem oh so real. I can’t bloody believe this thing is ACTUALLY going to be in the shops!

Issue one hits the shelves on January 8th and will be sold in WH Smiths, Morrisons and some independent newsagents. If you can’t find a copy locally, or you’re not in the UK, you can also purchase a subscription online (details of which I’ll be sharing as soon as it’s ready!) OH MY GOODNESS THIS IS ALL TOO EXCITING, roll on January 8th!

LED Wedding Dresses from Evey Clothing!

LED_LOVE_Laura_Grier (22)

Just when I think I’ve seen it all when it comes to wedding shoots, something like this lands in my inbox and I start to question everything!!

LA based designer Evey Rothstein was inspired by the lights of Disneyland to create some truly impossible dresses. She explains, “The Disneyland light parade opened my eyes to the possibilities of dreams and imagination as a child. I have always gravitated toward all things sparkle covered and am fascinated by fireflies and bio-luminescence. I love figuring out how things work and playing around with soldering irons, LEDs and fiber optic filaments.”

“There is different inspiration behind each dress. The chandelier dress came about because I was intrigued by the way light shines through cut glass and crystals. I created this fiber optic chandelier dress with a smashed mirror disco ball-like mosaic.”

“The rainbow paint dress was inspired by Jackson Pollock. I envisioned the body as a canvas and I splattered it with fabric, neon colors and light in an abstract experimental way.”

Epic Burning Man Wedding: Holmar & Jasmine

Stand by and prepare to flip out over this incredible Burning Man wedding. It wins EVERYTHING. The day was the truest expression of love. There were no flowers, centrepieces, stationery or cake. They had the ceremony at the Heart Phoenix Art Car by the Embrace Sculpture with 500 people looking on.

“The inspiration for our wedding was desert, caravansary, flowy, bedouin, Aladdin (with my name being Jasmine and all… haha), white and gold”, wrote the bride. “What made it unique was the fact that it was a HUGE production at Burning Man, over 500 people dressed to the nines in white and gold showed up to celebrate our union. The challenge prior was having no way to communicate. It was like taking it back to the old school days before the internet and relying on people’s memories. We did a lot of running around to different camps to remind people that the wedding was on Wednesday, which actually faired the best in terms of weather. The universe definitely worked in our favor.”
