a beautiful rustic barn wedding in Staffordshire, with a hint of Harry Potter | uk wedding blog

Merry Monday! Kirsty tried on over 100 dresses before she found her dream gown, which was made bespoke and my goodness, she looks gorgeous in it. What I love about Kirsty and Scott’s wedding is that they took everything they loved and put it all in to their day, for the people they love. There are so many fun and personal touches that make this such a fun and pretty wedding. And no wonder Kirsty couldn’t just choose one favourite moment, there are several touching images from their day. I hope you enjoy. I am always in favour of a wedding that has Harry Potter vibes!

A picture is worth a thousand words. So you need to get it right!

Guy Hearn

 

Picking a photographer is one of the more stressful decisions you have to make in terms of vendors. I think it’s really difficult to find someone who has a style that you like and that you can trust implicitly. I mean you have literally just met them and you are giving them one of the most important jobs within your wedding. I would say they are second only to the bride/groom or registrar/vicar (basically those doing the marrying and those getting married!) It is a huge responsibility for the photographer as they have to get the shots you want, plus those that perfectly capture your big day and they only have one chance! If they miss that special moment then it’s gone forever. How horrendous and stressful a job does that sound!? I definitely could not do it, that’s for sure.Read More

Honeymooning at Baros Maldives | UK Wedding Blog

facebook-profile-picture By Rebecca

The photo above shows the dreamy Baros Maldives where we spent the second part of last week. It’s a photo I can’t stop looking at, a heart shaped tropical island with the most incredible sea surrounding it. Having been voted the world’s most romantic resort, honeymooning there is pretty special. I actually spent my own honeymoon there back in 2014 {before I started working for SYGM} so I knew that you guys would love it. I was so excited to return, it had been such an incredible place but I also hoped it would be as good as we remembered. Would we potentially ruin our fond honeymoon memories? But I shouldn’t have worried, both trips will always be remembered and I think this time it was even better than the first.

a botanical urban cool editorial | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

Morning! Oh my how we are in for a treat. Yesterdays editorial was whimsical, rustic countryside and now we have minimalist, romantic urban cool to oggle at. The team do a much better job at describing the overall feel for this look, but I have to say, I am a huge fan. It muddies somewhere between urban/minimal/Nordic to dark romantic/femininity. Love it. The florals really steal the show, but the use of simple, clean jumpsuits is genius. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

a beautiful rustic farm editorial | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

 

Afternoon! We have the wonderful Katie from A Vintage House that Could on the blog sharing images of her recent shoot in a beautiful derelict farm. The shoot contains beautiful ideas and detailing for a rustic country wedding with a little bit of a twist. I agree with Katie that table decor is really important, because that is where your guests will be sat for a large portion of the day. You needn’t spend a fortune on the details but it helps to give it a decent amount of thought. Can we say hello to that beautiful Sanderson fabric?!

an Isle of Skye elopement | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

Good morning all, from the mountains of Slovenia yesterday, to a hand tying ceremony along the rugged coast of Skye today…who knows where we will be tomorrow? Hint. It is Yorkshire.

James and Leoni eloped to the Isle of Skye with just their two children and two friends, for a very intimate ceremony on the hillside. They followed the ceremony with a meal at The Three Chimneys. As you can imagine there aren’t many suppliers involved in an elopement, it seems quite tempting doesn’t it? And their whole day came in under £1000.

take me to the mountains of Slovenia | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

Good morning all! I am so so sorry for the little hiatus I had from blogging. I needed to get some stuff in order and sadly I just couldn’t find the time or energy to get my shit together to get out the weddings. Do not fear, not only am I back with fire in my belly for SYGM, but I behind the scenes I am also nearly ready to launch my new lifestyle blog Simply Weekend. I am hoping to launch at the end of April. It is basically an extension of The Weekend Edits but with a few added extras thrown in. I am busy photographing and writing on top of SYGM and vlogging but all will hopefully work in harmony with each other. I have give a few sneak peaks on insta, and I will continue to do so till the launch. I also changed my instagram name (I KNOW) to simply.weekend, so find me on there as I have lost a few followers because of it 🙁

Anywho! On to today’s beauty of a wedding. I don’t often blog overseas weddings, but if I do I like them to be within Europe and they have to speak to me. This one definitely did, in fact, it was the stunning scenery. The gorgeous mountains and the happy couple standing under the never ending sky saying their forevers. Meta and Albert both love hiking and spending time in the mountains, there was only one place they wanted their ceremony to happen.

Flower Power

These flowers…

 

Flowers are really indicative of personal style and taste. They enable you to make a statement at your wedding whether you want to be classic, romantic, modern or wild. They’re completely individual and something I always look at when attending weddings!Read More
