A Strong, Feminine and Mysterious Nordic Inspired Styled Wedding Shoot

A Strong, Feminine and Mysterious Nordic Inspired Styled Wedding Shoot

Strong, feminine and mysterious were the key words stylist The Wedding Spark used when putting together today’s gorgeous Nordic inspired shoot captured at the stunning Abney Park Cemetery and Nature reserve in London. It is full of all the markings of the on trend Scandi theme of Hygge, with it’s gorgeous Nordic patterns and faux fur throws, but with a much more darker and wild approach. Captured by Maria Assia Photography and featuring the work of some wonderful UK suppliers, this is a shoot whose line up you will definitely want to note down….

Lucy and Danny’s Big Top Wedding

Lucy and Danny’s Big Top Wedding

Happy Monday beauties! Hope you all enjoyed the glorious sunshine over the weekend……..it seems all that rain did have a silver lining after all! This morning we have a brilliantly unique wedding for you to feast your eyes on. Lucy and Danny’s Big Top Wedding was perfectly poised and put together by the flawlessy super Something Blue Wedding Planning. The couple used a giant big top tent belonging to the Groom’s family to unite everyone in style. Captured by the amazingly talented Martin Beddall  and Matthew Page , we love this wedding from start to finish. Naturally elegant and bustling with dazzling creative décor, it really does have a little bit of everything, including a grand manor house as the backdrop to their funfair-style marquee reception! Bride Lucy describes her day as ‘magical’ and we absolutely agree that there is a sparkling touch of fairytale about this big day.

Roxy and James’ Rural Bohemian DIY Wedding

Five cups of coffee, half a pack of tissues and bucket-load of lemon sorbet…. and I’m finally ready to share my very own Real Wedding with you beautiful Festival Brides readers! Writing a Real Wedding feature about my own wedding has been a total emotional delight. I think I’ve brought a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘happy tears’… I’m sure most brides will agree that this pinnacle day in all of relationship history is so sacred that it’s often indescribable to people that weren’t actually there with you, living and breathing the moment for themselves. However, through bloodshot eyes and smiling cheeks, I’ve really tried my best to share our wedding with you as honestly and authentically as I can, in the hope that our alternative, outdoor, rustic, bohemian day will give inspiration to all you free-spirited brides. Think hippy, laidback with an ethereal touch of old-chic glamour and a whole lotta LOVE and you will be on your way to envisioning our day. Using Festival Brides and Pinterest as my guide, (OK, so I know I’m biased, but Festival Brides is THE best inspirational blog for brides like us!), we managed to create a dreamy DIY wedding on a shoestring budget. With just a third of most couple’s average wedding-spend, I think we’ve proved that you don’t have to break your back (or the bank) trying to afford your perfect wedding. The only thing you really need….is love.

Franki and Rob’s Vibrant Tropical Paradise DIY Festival Wedding

Morning gorgeous people! Hopefully you’re all feeling refreshed after the weekend. For us, another glorious Monday morning means another beautiful festival-inspired Real Wedding to share with all of you. This morning we’ve been ‘wowed’ by photographer Casey Avenue’s most recent artistic accomplishment, featuring a modern boho bride so super cool it hurts! Franki and Rob infused their Latin American influences and love of travel, food, wine, music and good times, to plan their vibrant festival wedding, aptly named ‘LoveSmash’ by the couple themselves. Showcasing some of the brightest and boldest décor to hit a blank canvas since 1976, these guys knew exactly what they wanted from their big day. Think glamping, fairy lights, fuschia meets nautical-blue, home-crafted dreamcatchers and a hippy mix of love, light and cool vibes, and you might just be on the right track! It’s so refreshing to see couples working their weddings against the grain and doing it all differently, and this colour-injected, collaborative showpiece by this smoothly eccentric couple is leading the way in true non-traditional wedding style…
