A Mountain Top Ceremony for a Modern Art Wedding
July 8, 2010
Sara & Andy’s mountain top wedding took place at
Sapphire Point in Breckenridge, Colorado. They kept it intimate with only 50 guests to the wedding and reception, which was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver.
As well as keeping their wedding small and personal, the skipped a lot of the traditional fluff – for example instead of a cake they opted for ice cream sandwiches with sprinkles! They also didn’t want (or need) to add any extra decor to their ceremony location or their reception venue as the surrounding countryside and the museums art work spoke for itself and complemented their unfussy theme perfectly.
“We utilized the beauty of the spaces from the natural mountain top to the contrast of the modern space of the contemporary art museum to make the couples wedding photographs uniquely theirs” photographer Anna told me. “It was nice working with the two seemingly contrasting spaces to create wedding photographs that were cohesive and representative of the couples day, personalities and love for each other.” Finally, Sara & Andy chose not to have any bridesmaids or groomsmen.
Thanks to photographers Anna & Aaron for sharing this awesome day with us

Ahh Big Sur. In the early part of my wedding blogging career I had no idea what this 'Big Sur' was... a magical sounding place that all the other wedding bloggers spoke of so often. And then finally I realised the obsession.
These Californain mountains are picturesque. And overlooking the Pacific ocean. Is it any wonder they're such a popular spot for weddings? Come on English mountains... step it up a bit...

Worried about rain on your wedding day? Well, don't! Not only is it something you literally can not control, but Ashley and Andrew's day proves that stereotypical 'bad' weather can make for the most beautiful images and special moments. They were married in October at Mt Hood in Oregon. They wanted their day to have a autumnal fairytale wedding with whimsical touches. They were inspired a lot by nature and the beauty of the area.

Moody Desert Magic: A Utah State Park Ceremony
August 4, 2023
Having both been married before and done the big, traditional wedding thing, Candice and Kiel knew they wanted to do something entirely different for their wedding. Candice had visited Dead Horse Point State Park in Moab, Utah a few years previously and while she was there set some new intentions for her life. Just a few weeks later she met Kiel so it felt very fitting to go back to this beautiful and meaningful spot to say their vows.

I was convinced this wedding was a styled shoot with models. Convinced. These kinds of beautiful people don't exist in real life do they?!
Well, apparently they do, and I've got the photographs to prove it. Stand by for some serious wedding envy my friends - That light! That dress! Those model-esque bridesmaids!
Powerful Mt Warning Wedding, 100 Bridesmaids & Flower Crowns for all: Polly & Jamie
June 10, 2013
People often ask me if I ever get bored of blogging about weddings. I can see why because usually once you've been doing something - anything - for as long as I have been doing this, it's natural to think that you might start to become a little 'over' it. So while I'm not going to pretend that I'm always thrilled, overjoyed and amazed by every wedding that graces my inbox, I can safely say that I am probably as far from 'over' this job as I could be... especially when I get sent images like Polly and Jamie's wedding to drool over.
A Rain-Soaked Wedding Festival: Helen & James

Rain on your wedding day is a big worry for a lot of couples, but today I'm here to prove to you that it can actually be pretty amazing! Yes, Helen and James' outdoor festival wedding was a wash-out, but they definitely didn't let it ruin their day. Check out the amazing photographs their photographer Neil Thomas Douglas was able to capture... of course shots like this requires a couple who aren't afraid to get a little wet and muddy, but these guys went all out! They even went out in a boat on the river during the downpour!
