English Countryside Wedding Inspiration

Today’s photo shoot comes to us from Photography by Rachel who was inspired by the English countryside to create a vintage wedding look fitting of setting as beautiful as this.  The photographer shared with us the ideas behind the shoot with not one, but two couples!

Set in the english countryside at an outdoor wedding venue called Briasty Estate it was the perfect place to compliment the wild english garden look which was the overall theme for this styled wedding shoot along with the idea to have two real loved up couples in one setting.

One couple with an air of modern luxury about them who looked stunning amongst the wild foliage of the venues ‘greenhouse’ and a beautiful brunette couple who completely represent the classic beauty in english literature – think Mr Darcy!

The venue is a blank canvas for your outdoor wedding with the only limit being your imagination with rolling hills as far as the eye can see. I love to photograph outdoor weddings so this venue was perfect and I love the idea of capturing the romance between a couple amongst the beauty of a wild garden overflowing with nature.

A Gorgeous Formal Elopement in Austria

Georgiana and Stefan had an intimate elopement, just for two, three years after their first wedding. She is from Romania he is from Austria. They met in Bucharest and originally wed in Romania before deciding to do it all over again years later, just the way they wanted to. The location they selected may look familiar, Schloss Leopoldskron in Salzburg, a spot used in the film The Sound of Music!

Georgiana shared a little bit of the behind the scenes from their second big day with us:

It was definitely strange after almost 3 years to put my wedding dress back on to see each other like this again but it felt absolutely wonderful – magical really. Since it was just the 2 of us it was more intimate than with an entire wedding party. We had plenty of time just for us and with Claudia our photographer. We were able to do all the things we didn’t have time at our first wedding. It was a real luxury. A full day just for the two of us.

  

I really trusted Stephanie my wedding planner to come up with a perfect colour theme. I love opulent décor mixed with a contemporary feel so the grey was a nice and balancing touch.

      

The Rolls Royce was a real treat. The driver took us around the lake and we really felt like superstars.

Congratulations to the newlyweds!

An Oceanfront Wedding on the island of Nevis

Malea and Eric wanted an intimate wedding and opted for a destination wedding on a somewhat remote island in the Caribbean to give them just that. The two tied the knot at the swanky Four Seasons Resort Nevis and Malea gave us a peek into their big day and how it came to be.

When we got engaged, we decided pretty quickly we wanted a small, intimate wedding with our closest friends and family. With that in mind, we wanted to select a destination that our guests could also spend a few extra days vacationing. Ultimately, we chose the remote West Indies island Nevis for its gorgeous beaches, quaint town, and Nevis Peak. But what really sold us on the secluded island was The Four Seasons Resort. We knew we could trust the long-standing, prestigious brand with our wedding and that it would be flawlessly executed. Not the mention, the grounds would be immaculate and the food would be top notch. Another key factor in our decision-making was that we didn’t want a bustling, tourist town with cruise ships flocking in every day. For us, it was about seclusion, uniqueness and the ability to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our guests.

When we officially selected Nevis as the destination, we knew the island scenery would be nothing short of amazing with breathtaking mountain views, panoramic multi-colored ocean and lush gardens. We didn’t want to compete with the natural surroundings, so we chose a neutral palette of tans and grays, with small pops of color in the floral arrangements and groomsmen’s ties and pocket squares to bring it all together. 

  

Other than the actual exchanging of vows, there are a couple of moments that we relive regularly in complete awe. First, we strategically scheduled an “event” every day that guests were in Nevis. From the moment guests arrived, we wanted their experience to be as great as our own. On Thursday, we hosted a welcome celebration at the Resort with a full buffet dinner. Friday, guests were shuttled half way up Nevis Peak for a sunset rehearsal dinner at Golden Rock Inn, nestled in the jungle with sweeping views of the ocean. Saturday proved beautiful for our nuptials on the 18th green lawn, overlooking the ocean. And the finale included a half-day catamaran cruise complete with snorkeling adventures. The other moments that we constantly relive are the hours leading up to the wedding itself. We had a three-hour block of time that we spent with exclusively with our Details photographers, exploring the island with our wedding party. The photos and video captured the personality of our crew and in-the-moment experiences that would otherwise be lost over time. 

Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Picture-Perfect Private Island Destination Wedding in The Bahamas

destination wedding invitationcustom wedding napkins

Kaileigh and Kyle held their destination wedding at the beautiful Hope Town Harbor Lodge on a private island in The Bahamas. The couple had a special place in their hearts for the location, a destination that the bride had been going to most of her life. Kaileigh shared the story of their big day with us.

My family has a house in the Abacos and I’ve grown up going there. My favorite place in the whole world to hang out is where we had the reception – I even took swimming lessons there when I was a child! Kyle visited a few times with me while we were dating. He instantly wanted to move there and open a coconut stand. It was safe to say he agreed with the location.

We asked the bride about her favorite moments from the day:

When I saw Kyle’s face walking in the ceremony.

Getting ready with my friends, mom & Ky’e mom.

Seeing my dad walk in while we were getting ready in his seersucker suit and pink sailboat tie.

Surprising the guests with the fireworks.

And of course, when everyone jumped in the pool!

I wanted everything to look elegant with subtle beach elements. I picked blush, gold and white to offset the beach scenery (instead of selecting a turquoise or coral). We wanted to make it as personal as possibly and spent a lot of time with the details such as the welcome baskets, table names, Bahamian bread favors, the napkins, etc. My goal was for people to look at things and know that they were related to Kyle and I.
