Jane & Michael   ♥   Hudson River Valley, New York

Photographer:   OLLI STUDIO

 

There’s been a touch of autumn in the air over the last few days in the UK. Torrential downpours and grey skies have been greeting us most mornings and once the sun finally came out yesterday afternoon there was a cool, fresh autumnal edge to the breeze and the pavements were strewn with yellow leaves where the trees must have mistaken the unseasonable weather for the beginning of fall.

 

Despite it signifying the end of summer, autumn is a lovely season and a gorgeous time of year for a wedding. Deep earthy shades can be teamed with pops of autumn brights – pumpkin orange and golden yellow and rich red leaves – to create a warm and romantic wedding theme.

 

Jane and Micheal jetted off to Upstate New York to create just this kind of cozy atmosphere for their wedding day. Their day was filled with crisp, bright sunlight and their venue didn’t disappoint with autumn-hued treetops and a dewy view over the Hudson River Valley as their backdrop. Cute personalised touches including pumpkins and scarecrows added to their pretty, rustic autumn theme.

 

Fingers crossed that the summer sunshine is going to return to us for a little while longer, but it is quite exciting that the lovely autumn months are just around the corner too…

Claire & Kevin   ♥   Bordeaux, France

Photographer:   OssaPhoto

 

I love it when you stumble across a totally new and exciting holiday locale that you knew nothing about previously, but that instantly makes you want to add it to your future must-visit list. One such delightful destination is the beautiful beach location that Claire and Kevin chose for their engagement shoot – Biscarrosse, situated on the Atlantic Coast in southwest France.

 

Apparently a renowned surfing spot that attracts surfers, windsurfers and kitesurfers from across the whole of Europe, Biscarrosse is also surrounded by three inland lakes that come complete with water activities and is settled beside the largest forest in Europe (the Forest of Gascony), therefore developing itself into a family-friendly beach and outdoor activity vacation resort.

 

Biscarosse beach sports a busy beach life vibe with a central plaza and pedestrian streets that are packed with restaurants and bars with buzzing outdoor-terraces and as the sun sets the atmosphere comes alive with street performances and live music. Sounds like a truly idyllic summer vacay spot doesn’t it and could there be a more picturesque setting for a sundowner engagement shoot?!

 

This cute couple and their photography team (Ossama and his wife – film wedding photographers from OssaPhoto) wanted to capture the action, love and beautiful light of this stunning beach haven and draw us in to the feeling of an endless summer in France….I think that they did just that!

Jess & Rob   ♥   Seneca Lake, New York

Photographer:   Smile Peace Love Photography

 

Today we’re jetting off to the US and the state of New York for a luxury lakeside destination wedding! Waterside weddings are one of my favourites; whether it’s overlooking the ocean, a river, a lake or even a canal, being beside water creates an incredibly calm and at-one-with-nature feeling, and of course it makes an undeniably beautiful backdrop.

 

Jess and Rob tied the knot beside the harbour of the elegant Watkins Glen Harbour Hotel, overlooking the spectacular Seneca Lake in the heart of Finger Lakes Wine Country (sounds good to me!).

 

Their springtime celebration was prettied with pink details and Jess stunned her groom (and their guests) in a sophisticated capped-sleeve Vera Wang gown, just right for this spring soiree.

 

They pampered their guests with lovely little personal details at the wedding reception including pashminas as favours to keep everyone snug as the sun began to set and the early evening chill arrived….

When it comes to sharing real destination weddings on You Mean The World To Me the main focus tends to be on the venue as this is the key factor to decide upon with a wedding abroad. So the weddings featured aim to help you decide where in the world should you tie the knot through sharing a range of chic and unique wedding venues from across the globe!

 

Whilst on the subject of unique……today’s destination wedding took place in the idyllic Key West in sunny Florida however, the truly one of a kind feature in Beatriz and Chadwick’s wedding was the lovely locale that they chose; they said ‘I Do’ within the landscaped gardens of the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum!

 

Tucked away in the heart of Old Town Key West, this beautiful property was home to Ernest Hemingway (one of America’s most celebrated and respected authors) for more than ten years. Full of character and charm this exceptional venue gave the bride, the groom, and their guests (who all flew in from Philadelphia) a truly memorable wedding day.
