In Loving Memory
June 4, 2009
I am truly honoured to be allowed to share these gorgeous images with you today.
Gia Canali sent me these wonderful photographs of her parents as a tribute to her Father who has recently passed away.
Her parents clearly had some fabulous style on their wedding day (and the wedding day of Gia’s Uncle) and I am just so honoured to share these stunning photographs. Her Mum’s wedding dress and that gorgeous sundress were actually made by her Grandmother too (who took this photograph) how multi-talented!
Those of you who know me well know that I buried my father last week, after he battled leukemia for almost three years. Now begins the harder project—reassembling my memories of him. All our photographs are suddenly worth more. This photograph of my parents on their wedding day hung in their bedroom when I was a child. I have always, always loved it.
So, here’s to you, Dad. I’m not sure how I’m going to get through photographing the father-daughter dance for the rest of my life … and I miss you so much

We may be well on our way towards the depths of winter (waah!) but I thought I'd just cling onto those hazy Summer days for just a little while longer by sharing Lynne & Stevie's June wedding.

Junk and Glitter Themed Farm Wedding: Ellie & Ed
September 6, 2013
Ellie and Ed wanted their June wedding to not only reflect them - their likes and loves - but to be a fun day for everyone, full of DIY details. The day started with an emotional ceremony at Aldenham School, Elstree and the reception was in tipis on Buckettsland Farm, Well End. "We said the whole way through the planning process that we didn't have a theme but looking back it was essentially junk and glitter", began the bride. "If you ever saw our flat, you would know that we’re not matchy-matchy people in the slightest. I love tack and have a big collection of oddities, plus I have an obsession with the stars and the moon and anything glittery, so I always knew they would end up making an appearance."
Colourful Heart Themed Wedding in the Czech Republic: Markéta & Sam
September 8, 2014
Markéta and Sam said "I do" within the Ruins of Castle Košumberk in the Czech Republic. Their colourful theme represented the two of them, and overall their theme was love and hearts! "We love colourful things and bright styles so our theme for the wedding could be called a heartfelt kaleidoscope meets 50s twist and shout!", Markéta said. "Hearts were easy. I love Melissa shoes and I just loved my wedding shoes. When Sam proposed I ordered them just two days after. They have a big cute heart and so we decided a heart theme for the whole wedding sounded good.
Cherries and Jazz Themed Lithuanian Wedding: Antanas & Kristina
April 5, 2014
An usual wedding theme perhaps, but Antanas and Kristina knew exactly what they wanted for their Lithuanian wedding. "The first part of our theme was cherries", explained the bride. "Two red ripe cherries joined together, what better symbol of partnership? Red also means strong and passionate love. The sweetness symbolises happiness and the joined top symbolised commitment and togetherness. It became our logo for all of our stationary and guest favors. It was the background detail for the whole event."
