Lighthouse Lovers

Holly and Tom_Laura Power Photography (46)

I’m totally obsessed with the spectacular location of Holly and Tom’s informal Welsh wedding. They were married in the lighthouse at Nash Point, on the coast of Vale of Glamorgan in South Wales. They chose the location because it was so naturally beautiful.

“We drew inspiration from our gorgeous surroundings, the beautiful beach and the stunning coastline”, said Holly. “Tom used to be a keen surfer so we instantly knew that we wanted the wedding to take place near the sea. We were so lucky that Nash Point has a breath-taking view. The fact that the lighthouse is the only working lighthouse in the country licensed for weddings sealed the deal.”

“We didn’t want anything too formal so I spent hours scouring Pinterest for casual wedding ideas”, she continued. “The first thing we wanted is for the wedding to be like one big party, like a festival, so we hired tipis and set them up in the field next to the lighthouse for our reception. The farmer we hired the field from also let us borrow his hay bales which made for great decoration and seating. We wanted to have a sweet table, a popcorn bar and s’more kits for our guests which we made ourselves the night before the wedding. The finishing touch had to be fairy lights and bunting because let’s be honest they make absolutely anything look pretty and magical!”

Lo-Fi Vegas Elopement

Ollie and Emma ran away to Vegas to be married. The British couple wanted to do things completely on their own terms so that meant no guests and no fancy formality. They had a party for their friends and family back in the UK when they returned.

“We really wanted to escape and let off some steam after originally planning a very sensible wedding!”, the couple told me. “Vegas seemed the perfect playground and being free of guests meant we were able to do things exactly as we wanted. There was no pressure to please anyone other than ourselves.”

Colourful Vegan Wedding in Kent

www.kerryannduffy.com

Anita and Claudia were married at The Ferry House Inn in Kent. They wanted a wedding that reflected them both so that meant lots of colour, lots of personal touches and everything being vegan.

“We knew that we weren’t pastel coloured kind of people, we love bright colours!”, Claudia began. “We are also not pom pom kind of people, and roses are not really our thing either… So nothing that was very popular in weddings really worked for us. Instead, we simply tailored the wedding to suit us, what we felt is normal…”

“The day had a rustic and boho chic feel but it was also colourful… and vegan!” she continued. “The whole wedding was vegan, so our outfits had to be too. I had my dress made by Frederica Bruno Couture, that ended up being one of the most expensive things but it was amazing and so worth it! Anita’s suit came from The Butch Clothing Company.”

Nostalgic Romance & Travel Themed Wedding

Nostalgic romance and journey wedding (28)

With just a few guests and $7000 to spend, Joanne and Paul planned their travel themed wedding at Wakarusa Historical Museum. “The inspiration for our wedding was ‘love is a journey’ and nostalgia”, said the bride. “We both love to travel, hence the train station location. Our unique flowers were made of old maps and we had suitcases and atlas jars with candles. We also had lots of globes and vintage cameras. We were married in the waiting room of the train station.”

“All the décor was DIY and we planned the whole thing ourselves. My favourite part of our wedding was our handwritten vows where we both expressed that we not only married one another, but our children too. We are a blended family of one another and three children total.”

Four Reasons Why You Should Have a Wedding Video

When planning your wedding, you’ll be told over and over again that you should book a great wedding photographer. I wholeheartedly agree with this, but have you also considered booking a videographer? Unlike photography, videography seems to be right down the bottom of most couple’s ‘must have’ lists and I think that’s a real shame.

Obviously budget has a lot to do with it, but as someone who didn’t have a wedding film and regrets it, here are four reasons why I really think you should book one! You are never going to be sorry that you had a wedding video made, but you might regret not having one.

1. You’ll get all of the feels

There is nothing quite like the emotions you’ll feel on your wedding day. The anticipation just before you walk down the aisle, the nerves as you listen to your other half read their vows, the lump in your throat as you hear your father say how proud he is of you during his speech…

A video lets you to relive those precious moments over and over again. We have one shaky, 20 second clip from our wedding of me walking down the aisle that a friend filmed on her phone, and whenever I watch it and hear the music, I GET ALL THE FEELS. I’m brought right back to what I was feeling at that very second. Its something you can’t quite understand until you’ve experienced it for yourself and I would do anything to be able to relive some of the other special moments from our wedding again.

2. You’ll see the bits you missed

Unlike photos, video will capture some really subtle parts of the day, things that you otherwise might forget. The nervous shuffle your groom did as he first saw you at the top of the aisle, the way your dad’s voice cracked as did his speech, your mum’s eyes welling up just the tiniest bit as she first saw you in your dress. There’s so many special moments that photography alone can’t always capture.

It’s very common for brides and grooms to say that their wedding was “such a blur” or “went by so fast”. Wouldn’t it be amazing to replay the whole day again and catch the things that you missed?

Rainbow Fairy Wedding with the Bride Wearing Wings!

Now this is something you don’t see everyday – a bride in wings! Chris and Chilli were married in August and planned their rainbow fairy wedding completely by themselves.

“Our wedding was rainbow themed with a relaxed, fun atmosphere”, explained the bride. “We didn’t want a fancy church ceremony, posh cars or for me to wear a simple white gown. Instead, there was a horse and carriage (I have been around horses my whole life and it has always been my dream to arrive at my wedding in one!), a civil ceremony outside under a pagoda, and colourful outfits including me in fairy wings! Our reception had a pub atmosphere and our meal was a BBQ. We also had a bouncy castle!”

“My dress was originally by Benjamin Roberts but with a heck of a lot of changes and alterations by Margaret from Confetti & Lace, we turned it into a unique piece to show off my personal style. My shoes were custom made rainbow Converse. I live in Converse, so it only felt right to wear them on my wedding day too. I don’t like cut flowers, to me they are expensive dead things, so I carried a felt bouquet made by Miss Jennifer Rae.”
