Eugenia and Enrico’s theme for their Italian wedding was ‘take it easy’. That meant they wanted to make the celebration as fun, stress-free and easy for everyone as possible. They told their guests they could dress casually, however they felt most comfortable, the goal was really just to have a party where they happened to get married!
“Our dream has always been to create an amazing party rather than a traditional ceremony”, said the bride, “where everyone could be free to enjoy themselves. The day started with a simple and quick civil ceremony followed by a nice lunch of beer and chat. Then the real fun came – our friends organised a multi-religious ceremony and at the same time we sang, danced and played! Then the party took off with diving in the pool, cocktails and music and a great desire to have fun!”
The big after party was held at the groom’s parent’s home. They decorated it themselves with lights, dreamcatchers and vintage furniture. The party went on long into the night concluding with everyone – the bride in her dress included – jumping into the pool!
“The wedding day really was one of the best days of life,” Eugenia concluded, “so dear brides and grooms, have less anxiety and more fun!!”

A Backyard Pool Party Wedding: Kate & Doug
July 31, 2012
Kate & Doug's backyard wedding took place in Kent in June. Kate designed her own dress, hand-crafted the decor and played in a band with her husband at the reception! She told me all about their magical day. "We have been together for 10 years so we really wanted to have a proper big wedding to cement our relationship and have a blast with our friends and family. I really wanted to get married in the garden of England, Kent, where I grew up and have a proper English country wedding. So we started looking at venues and found Ratsbury Barn, a beautiful 17th century Kentish barn in Tenterden for the ceremony. Then, my Mother's boyfriend who lives down the road very kindly offered to let us use his amazing place for the reception! We got a marquee and extended his pool house area, it was perfect."

December 21, 2017
Round here, we all know that you don't have to wear white to your wedding - Rock n Roll Bride couples adorn themselves in all colours of the rainbow! Here's a couple that did just that by wearing outfits in warm tones of blue, but the twist was that they asked their guests to be the ones wearing white! It's a stylish move (well, they are fashion designers), and everyone looked so bright and glamorous.
Poolside Palm Springs Wedding
Let's Frolic Together
July 7, 2018
Lauren and Matt's goal for their wedding was simple: they wanted an intimate celebration where they could spend the week before with their families. To achieve this they rented a private home in Palm Springs rather than going for a traditional wedding venue. This meant more work, of course, but a bigger reward at the end of it too!

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.
1970s Inspired Backyard Barbecue Wedding: Emily & Chris
March 14, 2013
Ahh Emily & Chris' Florida nuptials is what my wedding dreams are made of. Getting ready in the Hard Rock Hotel (my spiritual home for sure) this achingly cool pair had their beautiful wedding at Ybor City Museum Garden in Tampa. Emily wore the Greenbow lace gown by BHLDN and Miu Miu shoes, while Chris kept it casual yet chic in a checked shirt and a vintage velvet jacket combo. The 1970s is an era that many might feel should be left back with the flares, disco and Woodstock hippies, but I'm am here to tell you the exact opposite. How bloody cool are these two?!
Insane Italian Vintage Circus Wedding: Michelangelo & Francilla
September 3, 2013
Unlike so many Italian weddings that they'd been to before, Michelangelo and Francilla wanted a day that was big, ridiculous and most of all fun! They went for a vintage circus theme, and oh boy, they really did go all out on the theme! Francilla told me all about it, "In Italy it’s quite impossible to have a different wedding and not do everything traditionally. It’s so hard to get away from the 'rules' that everyone says you have to obey, but we worked hard to make sure we did! We would have never been happy to marry in this way, and luckily our families knew it!"
