From The Bride…I always envisioned our day to be pretty florals, pastel pinks and a small, personal relaxed wedding! With good food and music!My favourite moment of the day was when I stood at the beginning of the isle with my dad arm in arm and saw my husband to be look round and seeing his face! Then to walk down the isle in front of all our close friends and family there! Was the best! I think my favourite crafted detail would be the flower adorned swing because how beautiful our amazing photographer captured it in the photos!

We’d always said we would get married abroad, we loved the idea of being away with all our close friends and family and also the uniqueness that no one had probably been there before! Then we found Almonry Barn and it was the best of both worlds we was still in the UK so our grandparents could make it but we travelled and had the uniqueness that no one had been there before! Almonry Barn is amazing we loved it so much on the website that we booked it before we even went to see it! And when we did its even better than the photos! The barn would look amazing for a wedding even if you didn’t add any extras it’s a stunning venue! Louise the Owner is lovely and so helpful! Always at the other end of an email she helped so much with me planning from afar! Almonry barn is beautiful inside and out!

When we started planning the wedding the owner of Almonry Barn, Louise put us in touch with an amazing Florist Amber Persia, as I knew what colour palette I was thinking for the flowers and had a few pictures on pinterest of the cake etc, Amber asked me to send her my Pinterest board and she was amazing! she had so many great additional ideas and sent me pictures of what my bouquet could look like, the men’s buttonholes, the corsages etc! She sent me a detailed email of all the flowers she was looking to use in my bouquet, on the tables, table plan and on the cake! She could not have made them any more perfect; They were even better than I could imagine! The flowers looked great against the bridesmaid’s pastel blue dresses and the groomsmen’s suits. Of course made the venue even more beautiful with blush flowers everywhere!

 I’d seen Kerry’s beautiful, natural images I knew I would love her to photograph our wedding! Kerry was great; we spoke a lot over email, due to the vast distance between us and she was always so helpful! She made me feel very comfortable straight away! When we met at our engagement shoot it was lovely to get to know each other and have a good discussion about the wedding. I found it really nice that when we received our engagement photos, not only were they really beautiful, Kerry also wanted to discuss these photographs in order to tailor our wedding photography personally to us. We felt this was a great personal touch and as you can see from the wedding photographs, it worked! We are massively pleased with our photos; Kerry captured some amazing moments that we will treasure forever!

My advice to brides-to-be would be to enjoy the planning, Pinterest will become your best friend! Our wedding day was the best day of my life, it may seem like an obvious observation but it really was, it was so personal, loving and joyful, I would do it all again tomorrow if I could!

Luxurious Parisian Wedding Inspiration

I struggled to narrow down the adjectives to describe this shoot; it’s glam, yet elegant, ethereal yet simply romantic and inviting. Either way, it’s what we call a winner. Captured at The Belle Arte Workshop hosted by event planner Cynthia Martyn Events in Paris by Katie Stoops,  these pics have us wishing upon our lucky stars for an invite (from Seniman Calligraphy, The Wise Creative or Written Word Calligraphy perhaps?) to a French fete as fabulous as this. Just a little forewarning though: the rest of your Friday will be spent in our Vault right here.

From Katie Stoops Photography… This is a styled shoot that came out of The Belle Arte Workshop. The Belle Arte Workshop is a luxury immersive educational retreat for professional wedding planners, stylists, photographers and related creatives. The workshop is a curated and collaborative experience focused on the world of fine art weddings. The first edition was hosted in Paris, France during November 2015 and plans for a second installment are underway for Fall 2016.

Timeless Late Summer Engagement Session in Paris

Guillermina and Ben’s e-sesh is essentially what our daydreams are made of. A french inspired scene complete with a pretty pink gown and stellar views, it’s surely to be your new favorite too. French Grey Photography captured these sweethearts to share and we’ve got it all in THE VAULT!

From the Bride-to-be… Ben and I met in 2007 while we were both studying abroad on Semester at Sea, a three month long program where we circumnavigated the globe. Once back in the U.S., Ben went to California and I returned to Miami. We dated long distance for two and a half years, then Ben moved to Miami. Fast forwarding to Christmas 2014, Ben surprised me with a ski vacation in Aspen. As you can guess, he proposed in Aspen, while we were having wine and hanging out by the fireplace. It was very intimate and I was caught completely off guard. We only called our parents that night, and we savored the moment by getting dressed up and going out to a romantic dinner to celebrate.

I was having a hard time finding a wedding venue that really excited me. I knew I preferred a destination wedding, but nothing seemed perfect until I came across a French chateau wedding. From then on, wedding planning became more fun than stressful, so I knew this was what I wanted my wedding to mimic. I looked at various places in the U.S. that had the same style, but it wasn’t the same. We finally decided to go for the real thing, and we booked flights to Paris to check out the venue I had fallen in love with.
While researching French wedding everything, I came across some of the most beautiful engagement pictures I had ever seen, by French Grey Photography. I fell in love with the lighting and the elegance of Brian’s photography. Ben and I booked a session, happy to know that even if we didn’t have our wedding in France, we’d have great pictures and memories of our time in Paris. We were both surprised as to how much fun the shoot was, and are in love with the pictures.
