It’s unusual that I’d just share a video, without the wedding pictures or story alongside it. Yet when film maker
Philip White showed me his latest offering – a cinematic take on the wedding film – I couldn’t help but want to post it immediately.
Grab yourself something to drink, sit back, relax, and enjoy.
This is completely captivating.
Happy Friday everyone!

Michelle & Deborah’s Romantic Parisian Themed Wedding
April 1, 2011
Michelle & Deborah's touching ceremony was one of the main reasons I wanted to share their wedding with you all today. Quite apart from all the beautiful and individual details the couple put into their day, the readings and poems that they selected for their ceremony made this wedding really special and signified their relationship perfectly.
They chose Shakespears Sonnet 116, a section from the children's book "I Like You" by Sandol Stoddard and "I carry your heart with me" by E.E Cummings for their vows. Finally in order to include the fight for equality they read the Massachusetts ruling on marriage. They thought it was so simple and basic and spelled out what marriage meant to them in a perfect way.
"FROM GOODRIDGE V DEPT OF HEALTH (Mass. 2003): Marriage is a vital social institution. The exclusive commitment of two individuals to each other nurtures love and mutual support; it brings stability to our society. Without question, civil marriage enhances the “welfare of the community.” It is a “social institution of the highest importance.” Civil marriage is at once a deeply personal commitment to another human being and a highly public celebration of the ideals of mutuality, companionship, intimacy, fidelity, and family… Because it fulfils yearnings for security, safe haven, and connection that express our common humanity, civil marriage is an esteemed institution, and the decision whether and whom to marry is among life’s momentous acts of self-definition….It is undoubtedly for these concrete reasons, as well as for its intimately personal significance, that civil marriage has long been termed a 'civil right'."

As we kick of 2020, I'm not sure I can think of a more perfect feature than this roaring 1920s themed vow renewal! And OMG is she a beauty! We feature quite a few vow renewals, but not often those of LGBTQ couples, so I was super excited to hear all about Kaitlin and Stephanie's love story. The day began life as a styled shoot, but they decided to renew their vows for real. They were married in Paris originally so wanted nods to this throughout too.
Monochrome Montmartre Wedding
Les Mariages de Elo
November 23, 2020
Shauna and Joe decided on the historic and beautiful Montmartre for their September 2019 wedding. The day was held at Hotel Particulier, the smallest hotel in Paris which has only five guest rooms. It meant they could take over the entire place with their 30 guests and hold their ceremony in the beautiful courtyard garden. The best part was that the distinctive décor meant they didn't need to add any extra decorations themselves.
