Eloping Never Looked So Pretty!

If you’ve ever, and I mean EVER toyed with the idea of an elopement, this inspiration shoot is about to convince you completely. Set in Venice, Italy with breathtaking architecture and a classic gondola ride, consider this your visual blueprint designed by Atrendy Wedding for a European “I do.” Go see the gallery by Eric Kelley for even more moments to love.

From the vendors… A timeless styled photo shoot that inspired an enchanting, Old World dream. We were inspired by the blossoming wisteria, the bustling waterways and intimate canals… the most beautiful city in the world. An outdoor ceremony in the garden of the Belmond Cipriani followed by an intimate dinner creation under the purple wisteria set the Venetian mood. We took advantage of the quintessential beauty of the city exploring bridges, hidden alleys and the famous stone paved St. Mark’s Square. A palette of white and green with pops of pink and orange enhanced the natural setting without distracting from this city’s natural beauty. The Venice canals were highlighted in the watercolor paper suite, and a gondola ride for the bride and groom were key elements of this quintessential Italian shoot.

Want to Rock Your Vintage Wedding? Get Away in a Car Like This.

When your wedding day takes place at an English manor as charming as this one, it doesn’t take much to wow your guests. A lovely off-the-shoulder Moira Hughes number, anemones, peach and ivory roses, and of course, a getaway car like this will do the trick. Ready to plan your own vintage affair? Make sure to soak in the full gallery from Weddings by Nicola & Glen in The Vault!

From Weddings by Nicola & GlenNicola and Tom’s wedding took place in the romantic surrounds of Calcot Manor in the Cotswolds. A luxurious 14th century Manor house with epic views over the rolling English countryside made an amazing location for our couple to return home to. Nicola and Tom, although originally from England now live in Sydney, Australia both working in advertising. With their creative background it is unsurprising how many gorgeous details permeated their day.

Nicola and Tom planned so many fun surprises. A seriously swish vintage Jaguar XK12 waited outside the church so they could drive themselves back to Calcot Manor to cheers from all their guests. On arrival at Calcot Manor a three piece Mariachi Band surprised guests at the drinks reception complete with trombone, guitars, sombreros and pisco sours! Impromptu dancing ensued!

A stunning stationery suite was designed by Nicola’s friend and water colour artist Harriet de Winton. She created a pretty lavender and fern wreath motif that was echoed on the dreamy hand-painted cake by Curtis & Co Cakes. An installation of giant wreaths by Lisa Elliott Flowers was suspended in the Barn at Calcot Manor making quite a statement! de Winton Paper co also created a beautiful water colour commission for Nicola and Tom to use as a table plan on the day based on all their favourite beaches in Sydney.

Other highlights included our beautiful Bride’s stunning Moira Hughes wedding dress – an Australian designer with an eye for romance. The dress combined an embossed Italian bodice and raw silk skirt, with an oversized silk bow and exquisite lace veil completing the look! Nicola wore cute Charlotte Mills peep toe heels with a poem on the soles. For the evening our Bride swapped her veil for a dreamy Bride La Boheme vintage headpiece.

Nicola’s Bridesmaids looked so chic in 1920s style white and silver dresses from Coast and strappy white heels. Sally and Nicola from Bristol Bridal Hair and Makeup mixed it up styling the girls hair both up and down and creating very natural yet polished beauty looks. The guys looked dashing to match in grey suits, black and white polkadot ties from Scotch & Soda and cufflinks made from reclaimed watch parts.

We loved that Nicola and Tom put so much heart into making sure every detail fitted with their overall vision for their wedding day to reflect them as a couple. Most of all we adored capturing how much these two souls enjoyed their actual wedding day as months of careful planning unfolded with style and oh so much fun!

From Super Tuscan Wedding PlannersOn the 20th of August, in a really hot summer day, we celebrated the love of Sarah and Paul! They decided to get married in Tuscany because they fell in love with this region: landscape, people, food and culture. And they decided to share all of this with family and friends in this romantic and rustic chic wedding day! Stunning locations: Horti Leonini, gardens in San Quirico d’Orcia, hosted the ceremony and a hidden Borgo in the middle of Val d’Orcia, was chosen for the stay and the wedding party.

When we arrived at the Borgo, that morning, we smelt the excitement in the air. All the guests were staying there and while everyone was getting ready we breathed a festive air and could feel the real connection, bonding and closeness among all of them.

Sarah was surrounded by her bridesmaids all the time and assisted by her mum step by step. They were all together in the same room getting hair and makeup done to share also this special moment. The pastel colors palette chosen for flowers suits perfectly to the delicacy of these moments.
Paul was ready long before, and took his time to try and chill out with his friends playing pool. He and his best men were handsome with their blue suits and their pink ties and pocket squares. But nothing compares to their colored striped socks, such a nice touch!

When the ceremony time came, Vintage Buses were ready to bring the 70 guests to San Quirico d’Orcia, at Horti Leonini. While waiting, key parts were the parasols and the hats, essential details studied to let people enjoy the moments under the tuscan sun! The Bride arrived with an iconic Vintage Bentley. All eyes were on her!

The civil ceremony was held in the center of the characteristic radial design made of triangular flowerbed, under the statue of Cosimo III dei Medici.The ceremony attracted a lot of curious people but we all still felt the sense of something intimate, just because the only thing that mattered for everyone there was Sarah and Paul’ love. Bride and Groom offered an after ceremony drink to their guests and left San Quirico on their Bentley.

Back to the Borgo, with the vintage coaches, guests were ready for aperitif and dinner. One of the reasons why Sarah and Paul chose Tuscany for their wedding finally came out: it was time to taste the italian food and wine! And finally came out also other details: vintage bicycles and guest book corner, tableau de marriage and table decor in rustic chic style.

After dinner, time for a super wedding cake, for gelato and Cantucci, to bring a little bit of Tuscany also in the desserts! And, for sure, time for dancing to conclude an unforgettable wedding day with the stunning landscapes of Val d’Orcia in the background!
