I can’t remember featuring a Polish wedding on my blog before, but if this is the kind of standards they’re setting, then I seriously should be posting more of them! There’s so much wedding gorgeousness in these images I can hardly contain myself.
Martyna & Piotr were married in Warsaw. The ceremony was held at
Jablonna Palace and the reception was at U Różyca, a private farm just outside of the city and right by Lake Zegrzynski. The reception was basically one big party! Laid back, unpretentious and with everyone pitching in to help.
Seriously, stop it Martyna. You’re killing me with your fierceness.
The bride wore a daring but beautiful short dress by
Bizuu and shoes by Aga Prus (she changed into Melissa sandals for dancing!) Her style was quirky yet timeless, elegant yet adventurous – and I for one can’t get enough of it. The pink sash with her bold bouquet is perfection and the giant floral hair wreath that she wore late into the evening added even more fun.
One of the most important factors to this couple was booking the right wedding photographer to capture their day. They were lucky enough to find Dorota & Michał of WhiteSmoke Studio. “For me it was love at first sight”, wrote Martyna. “Chemistry is the key factor when you’re in love but it is also vital between wedding photographers and a couple. The wedding photographs taken by Dorota & Michał look more like fashion shots for Vogue. They charm you with their natural beauty and ease. We didn’t have to pose at all, the photos just happened.”
I couldn’t agree more, these photos are so incredibly stunning! Thank you to Martyna & Piotr and photographers Dorota & Michał of
WhiteSmoke Studio for sharing with us today.

Simple & Cozy London Knees Up: Lee & Lauren
February 6, 2013
Red flowing locks, a faux fur coat, deep red flowers in her hair... as soon as I spied the beautiful Lauren on photographer Emma Case's blog I knew she was definitely a Rock n Roll bride. And then I saw the entire wedding and I literally couldn't wait to get it up on these pages - as soon as possible!
Lee & Lauren were married in November at Stoke Newington Town Hall. They has their reception at The Artisan of Clerkenwell, a pub/restaurant in North East London. They did things their own way. They picked a non-traditional venue, they homemade as much as possible and only invited people that they really wanted to be there. This wedding was every bit the modern fairytale.
Unpretentious & Family-Focused DIY Wedding in Anglesey: Anna & Adam
November 13, 2014
I'm not gonna lie, I've been looking forward to featuring Anna and Adam's wedding for a while. Anna is a wedding photographer herself, and I'm a big fan of her work, so I knew her own wedding would be something special. The wedding was 100% DIY. They picked a venue that wasn't specifically for weddings, but meant a great deal for them. They didn't want to spend a lot of money, so did most things as frugally as possible. Their main concern was that the day involved all the special people in their lives.
The wedding took place by the sea in Anglesey in May. "We didn't have a wedding theme as such", began Anna, "we just wanted it to be colourful, relaxed, fun, full of laughs, unpretentious, family-focused and very much DIY and personalised to us and the people and things we love. We wanted everyone there to feel special and comfortable and get involved as much as they wanted to. Lots of weddings focus just on the bride and groom, but to us it was also very much a day about our wonderful group of friends and family. We’re both incredibly close to them and it was really important to us to celebrate the fact that we weren't just coming together as a couple, but also as part of a precious larger community."

Iwona & Piotr wanted a simple and fuss-free wedding, one that reflected their Polish heritage but also showcased their love for all things retro. The day had a lot of DIY elements, from the brides dress to her brooch bouquet and the majority of the reception details.
"We wanted a simple wedding", wrote Iwona. "We love Rock n Roll and retro styles and we both have very old souls and like the old minimalist styles. Our colours were cobalt, black and white and we kept things simple. We also DIYed a lot."

For Roxane and Pierre, a relaxed homespun wedding was perfect. Their small ceremony was held at city hall, and they hosted the reception in the bride's house. "Pierre and I met in Qatar, where we both work as airline pilots", the bride began. "Everything happened very fast and after eight months together we decided to move in together. The only problem was that you are not allowed to live together without being married in Qatar so we decided to get married!"

I honestly don't know where to begin describing Emma & Pete's wedding to you all. From the reaction to just the sneak peek post (epic) that I put up last week, I know pretty much the whole of blog-land has been eagerly awaiting to see this wedding too and so I'm pretty flipping honoured that not only was I invited (and let into the secret that it was a surprise wedding!) but that Emma & Pete have allowed me to share it with you all. I have the best job in the world.
Bohemian Family Wedding in Poland
April 13, 2015
Ania and Stach did not want a formal day or a church ceremony, but they also didn't want to do the registry office thing, "We thought it would strip the magic away" the bride said. So instead they decided to marry on the hill near the groom's parent's cottage. They had the reception in a barn on the same land.
