Farrah & Shamus   ♥   Bali, Indonesia

Photographer:   PhotoFactory Bali

 

Bright and bold weddings have been a huge hit this year and they make for a very colourful affair, but when you stumble across a classic all-white or magical monochrome soiree like today’s elegant beach ceremony, you can’t help but fall in love with chic black and white tones.

 

Farrah and Shamus chose Bali for their destination wedding, and it’s not hard to see why. What could be more romantic than saying ‘I do’ on bleached-white sands, the glorious sun beaming overhead and a slight ocean breeze? Even just thinking about it makes me want to hop on the next flight out to this tropical paradise!

Farrah says:

“When it came to planning our special day, we wanted to do something a little different so we decided a destination wedding in Bali would be perfect. The flights and accommodation costs for guests was very affordable from Western Australia and Northern Territory, Australia (where most of our close friends and family live) and we gave everyone more than a year’s notice to prepare.”

Not only that, but the venues and the wonderful weddings that take place there are some of the most stunning events that your eyes will ever see.

Real Wedding – Portugal Was The Perfect Fit

You Mean The World To Me

Jessie & Elliot   ♥   Lisbon, Portugal

Photographer:   Piteira Photography

 

All of the pieces fell flawlessly into place for Jessie and Elliot’s destination wedding.

As they searched for somewhere to become husband and wife, they were drawn to picturesque Portugal where they had spent their first holiday together and where they truly fell in love. With such a special meaning to them both, this lovely locale appeared to be the perfect fit.

 

In pursuit of the ideal venue they discovered the dreamy Quinta de Sant’Ana (what a find!) and chose to hold their intimate reception in the wildly romantic, rolling vineyards surrounding this magnificent manor house.

 

The stunning location was infused with Jessie and Elliot’s personality with a delicately decorated ribbon alter, luscious lavender detailing and Jessie even made her own dress from the fabric of a vintage dress that she had found and with a little helping hand from a talented tailor.

 

This is the kind of wedding you wish you’d had an invite to, relaxed and informal and full of fun, yet oh-so-elegant, wonderfully whimsical and pretty as a picture all at the same time.

Jessie was right – Portugal really was the perfect fit.

“There are so many things that we loved about Jessie and Elliot’s wedding that it’s difficult to even know where to start… Right from the very first emails we knew that these guys had something special going on and Jessie’s efficiency and organisation skills are just out of this world… she kept in constant contact with us throughout the planning and when she asked us for suggestions as to what time the light would be best for the ceremony, and which way the altar should be positioned in relation to the sun, it was right there that we knew we had booked one of the most awesome brides ever.”

“Their ceremony was one of the most beautiful we have ever witnessed, not just because of the evening light (although that definitely helped!) but because Jessie and Elliot incorporated many little gestures and traditions from their collective family heritage…to honour Elliots Swedish roots they walked into the ceremony together, signifying equality in marriage; they passed their wedding rings around for their friends and family to bless before exchanging them with one another… and many other little traditions that made their day truly about them. It was everything we love in a wedding day and totally our style, from the preparations at the Aldeia de Mata Pequena (such a beautiful place!) to the intimate evening ceremony in the vineyards at the Quinta de Sant’Ana and we honestly loved every minute of it, thank you guys for choosing us to be a part of your amazing day and for your kind hearts and generous spirits, we wish you every happiness for the future.”

Jessie says:

“People say that Paris is the most romantic city in Europe but our love story began in Portugal. Well technically it began in Ethiopia, where we were working, but Portugal was the destination of our first vacation and where we truly fell in love with each other. So when deciding on a wedding location, Portugal was the perfect fit.”

Real Wedding – From London To LA

Bora & Will   ♥   Los Angeles, USA

Photographer:   onelove photography

 

Today’s real wedding is picture perfect. Of course, Bora the beautiful bride steals the show in her delicately detailed dresses and just wait until you see her shoes – you’ll definitely go green eyed!  

 

Bora and Will held their reception in one of California’s chicest hotels, The London in West Hollywood, Los Angeles. With panoramic views across the City of Angels as their backdrop, the couple put their heart and soul into adding a personal stamp to the venue (including a giant monogram topiary no less!) and they really made their special day their own.

Sara says:

“Okay, I have to spill a guilty secret. I was ‘this’ close to hijacking these two wedding dresses for my own, after seeing Bora stun in them. If only I was getting married again… swoon! Simply breathtaking! Bora is a designer for Tory Burch so it makes sense that her wedding would be so absolutely stunning!”

Bora says:

“My love of design, decor, interiors, fashion…I wanted it to be a mix of classic and modern with lots of greenery. Instead of how a ‘wedding’ should be with colour themes – I wanted it to be ‘how I would decorate my home’ or a ‘dinner party’. Romantic, classic, a bit quirky with all my favourite things – topiaries, blue and white Chinoiserie vases, black and white checkered floors, chandeliers, candelabras and I definitely wanted long rectangular tables. I also had my ‘Olympia Le Tan’ book clutch for the wedding- as something blue, which I loved!”
