Cosy Alternative Restaurant Wedding: Sandra & Kristijonas
December 8, 2013
Sandra and Kristijonas were married in Lithuania, at
Jalta, an alternative restaurant in Vilnius. From the outside it looks like a wooden house, they serve food made from locally sourced ingredients and they have a DJ in a greenhouse (which is actually where they had their ceremony!) The tree-lined terrace garden was the perfect setting for their laid back and cosy reception.
“We didn’t want to copy a wedding theme so just picked things we liked”, wrote the bride. “Our
wedding cakes were baked by a close friend and instead of champage we served Cuba Libre cocktails in small jars. Also, instead of traditional gifts all our our friends gave us vinyls which were played in the evening, after the band!”
The wedding was full of DIY and personal touches and so cost them just $5000. “We have tried to be realistic with the budget and we wanted it to be affordable”, she continued. “We started planning in advance and this allowed us to find the best deals. We also had friends and family to help us out. Our advice to other couples planning budget weddings would be to decide what do you really want yourselves and try to make it a celebration. A beautiful day does not necessarily has to be an expensive day.”

A Backyard Rainbow Wedding: Jason & Gwen
I Love that Glove
September 9, 2012
Honestly? I struggled with what to write about today. Usually on a Sunday I'll post something non-wedding related that's caught my eye or I'll share something exciting that I've done in the week. But I shared my Photography Farm retreat escapades in this week's Thursday Treats and since then I've basically been chained to my computer replying to the squillions of emails that came in whilst I was away and writing as many blog posts as physically possible. I also spent rather a lot of time on the phone to Cosmopolitan Magazine. NO BIG DEAL (more on this soon!)
And then this wedding pinged into my inbox and it all became clear.

January 14, 2013
I'm definitely not only of those girly girls. I favour a bold and modern aesthetic over pretty pastels any day. But Joey & Mike's wedding slayed me when it landed in my inbox recently. And 'pretty' is really the only word I can use to best describe what I saw.
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
Neil Thomas Douglas
September 30, 2013
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!
