Free-Spirited Outdoor Wedding Style in Quebec

Serious wife goals and life goals from today’s shoot, a dreamy festival-inspired wedding ceremony in Mouton Village, a charming estate hidden in a valley in QuĂ©bec, Canada. In fact we love this so much we’ve shared it twice! If you’ve picked up a copy of issue 23 you may recognise a few of these shots from Kat’s ‘Dear Kat’ letter!

Nestled in the countryside, Mouton Village is full of quirk and charm. Photographer Yanique Fillion wanted to use it as the location “to give the impression of being lost, and very far from civilisation. John and Natasha allowed us to capture their love, wrapped in sun and flowers. Who doesn’t want to get married after looking at these pictures?!”

And she has a point. The team made the most of the beautiful outdoors with a towering white geometric backdrop for the ceremony, adorned with light fabric that fluttered in the breeze. Using nature’s movements was a major inspiration for this shoot, as they decorated their reception with a parasol with floaty fabric that Natasha and John were lost in their own world underneath. Their long trestle table was prepared for an idyllic outdoorsy reception.

A Ghanaian Prince Marries his Italian Princess

Engagement shoots don’t get any better than this. Taking place in Italy, where the couple live, it just screams love, happiness and damn good style. Isn’t that what being a Rock n Roll bride is all about!?

Griffith, from one of the noble families of the GA tribe of Accra, Ghana, met Ilaria in Rome through a mutual friend. Three years later he asked her to marry him. They wanted to celebrate their engagement with some beautiful, fun and colourful photographs taken in their own flat in Italy. They also shot down by the beach, as they both love the sea.

Ilaria’s GORGEOUS pink gown was handmade for her and all of Griffith’s accessories came from Ghana. Ilaria’s engagement ring was handmade by a little independant jewellers in Ghana as well.

Phantom of the Opera Meets Interview with a Vampire

Misty and David’s Memphis wedding was 1930s formal meet 1800s masquerade ball. And as a couple who hit it off discussing Dali’s rare Alice In Wonderland paintings, we’d expect nothing less than artistic brilliance. At their first meeting with their wedding planner Misty informed her she wanted their ceremony to look like something out of Interview with a Vampire, and a mixture of 1920s and 1930s Hollywood glam meets old world Parisian brothel!

“David and I love the music and formality of the big band era by day, but by night are deeply intrigued and inspired by the era of Romanticism,” Misty explains. “Our ceremony was therefore inspired by a mixture of elements from Phantom of the Opera and Interview with a Vampire – formal yet dark, intense and mysterious.”

Red Rock Roadtrip Elopement – with Irn Bru toast!

Lauren (from Fife in Scotland) and Matt met while Lauren was solo travelling in the USA in 2015 – they met in New York and bonded over music, live shows and wine on a Brooklyn brownstone rooftop overlooking the Manhattan skyline. They stayed in touch, talking everyday, after that and their love blossomed. He even sold his car to visit Scotland to meet her family and friends!

After doing long distance for a while. flying back and forth and having epic road trip adventures in both countries, Lauren was lucky enough to get a work visa and move to Philadelphia with her company for a year. In 2017, Matt proposed at the top of a mountain on one of their many road trips, and Lauren made the move to Brooklyn to be with him full time.

With their love of travel, it made perfect sense for them to elope – and get married at the top of another mountain – this time in Sedona, Arizona. They finished off with another road trip down the West Coast – catching places like Vegas, Bryce Canyon, LA and San Diego.

Finding Your Style with Prezola: Matt Black

I have two very distinct sides to my personality: A rainbow loving, magpie emulating, glitter obsessive, ‘Disney is everything!’ side and an all-black-all-the-time, metal music listening, ‘forever looking for the perfect nude lipstick’ side. I am nothing if not a contradiction but for some reason it makes total sense to me. One day I want to roll myself in glitter, dress head to toe in rainbows and slick on some hot pink lipstick, and the next I only want to wear black and for everything to be clean and very neatly organised.

I feel like our home is a bit like this too. Our style has very much always been white walls with pops of colour in each room, but when we started to plan our next big project (the bathroom) we both agreed that we wanted to go the other way entirely and to experiment with a more masculine approach. We’re going for the darkest blue walls, black accents and lots of leafy plants.

When it comes to finding your own style (with what you wear or how to decorate your home) I am all for absorbing as much inspiration as possible, then picking and choosing the things that appeal. So what if it doesn’t make sense to other people that one room is painted royal purple and the next is entirely monochrome!? Like with everything in this life you have to do what makes YOU happy.

I have been trying to convince Gareth that matt black taps are the way to go for the bathroom too, unfortunately he’s having none of it but that hasn’t stopped me looking around for matt blank inspiration regardless. According to the people that know way more about this stuff than I do, matt black is a huge interior’s trend for 2019. Featured at the top of this post are some of my favourite recent finds, which are all available to add to a Prezola gift list. I certainly plan to incorporate some of these kind of details into the bathroom.
