When You’re a Fashion Industry Bride, One Designer Wedding Dress Simply Isn’t Enough

When I get married, it’s going to be all about the dress. So this gorgeous Bride, with her not one, but two, stunning designer gowns — one for the rehearsal dinner and one for the wedding — is a woman after my own heart. After all, I’ll take any excuse to wear a Carolina Herrera or Delphine Manivet masterpiece. See all the pretty, captured by Jimena Roquero and Helher Escribano, in The Vault!

From Jimena Roquero…Elena & Eduardo’s wedding in Ibiza was the event all their families and friends were waiting for the whole year. A three-day wedding with live music, cabaret show, sunsets from a boat, paella in the beach and all happening in the amazing island of Ibiza!

Elena works in fashion so she couldn’t resist to pick a gorgeous Carolina Herrera gown even though she thought it was not the most Ibiza look. Instead, she picked a total Ibiza look for the rehearsal dinner on the boat with a light and delicate design from Delphine Manivet.

Elena & Eduardo organized a fun rehearsal dinner at the beach and the invited all their guests on a ride on the boat where they were able to enjoy the magical Ibiza sunset. The day of the wedding, Elena got ready at her family house. The ceremony was celebrated in a very typical Ibiza church, with a completely white facade and they even had local dancers performing for them on their way out.

The cutest part was when Elena drove a vintage yellow citroen all the way to the reception venue, La Escollera. A chic and trendy restaurant by the beach that they decorated with color lighting and where they fed and entertained almost 400 guests until the party was over!

The Views Aren’t the Only Breathtaking Part of This Amalfi Coast Wedding

Like M And J Photography, we’ve been dreaming about visiting the Amalfi Coast for years. So, when they made the trip to Ravello, we were insanely jealous. Not only did they visit the picturesque region, but they also got to witness (and photograph) this gorgeous day. With an outdoor ceremony in a garden overlooking the coastline and a parade through the town square, this day proves dreams come true. See how in The Vault!

From M And J Photography… The Amalfi coast had been somewhere we dreamed of visiting for years. We can’t deny that we’d secretly been holding out to be able to use a job as an excuse to visit for the first time. So when Gabriella & Duncan asked us to shoot their wedding in Ravello, we were over the moon.

After arriving late at night, we woke the next morning to the spectacularly beautiful views over Amalfi and the blue blue Mediterranean sea and knew it was going to be a very special wedding that day.

All the celebrations took place high up in the town of Ravello with an outdoor ceremony at Giardini Principessa di Piemonte, an Italian garden overlooking the beautiful coastline. Duncan and his groomsmen dressed all in black tie made their way through the town square up to the ceremony followed by the rest of the guests to the sound of cheers and shouts of “viva lo sposo!!” from locals and tourists alike. Gabriella, accompanied by her father and bridesmaids followed to an equally enthusiastic reception.

The ceremony was intimate with both emotional and humorous readings from close friends and family. A classical string duo provided the perfect musical accompaniment. There was further music as everyone made their way back to the town square accompanied by an acoustic band singing traditional Italian songs. Drinks and canapé’s in the square were followed by a photo session for the bride and groom. The procession then moved on up to Villa Eva, for an evening of more stunning food, drink and scenery at Villa Eva. After some of the best speeches wedding speeches we’ve heard, everyone danced the night away under fairy lights in the villa’s courtyard. The perfect ending to a relentlessly joyous day!

Every Detail from This Wedding is Out of a Dream (Flamingo Heels Included)

It should come as no surprise that here at Style Me Pretty, we love the color pink, but this French Riviera wedding from Le Secret D’AudreyMG Image and Lavender And Rose has us tickled pink. Designer heels with a flamingo surprise (a throwback to the couple’s first date at a zoo), a floral invitation suite with a custom rose gold wax seal, and an abundance of soft pink roses — every inch of this day is a pink dream. And thanks to The Vault, we never have to wake up!

From Le Secret D’AudreyAs a wedding photographer in France I know I will be lucky enough to travel to beautiful venues across the country. I must say the French Riviera never disappoint. Shooting on film I know the light there will be just perfection with the right amount of glow.

Marie has the most amazing sense of style like most British girls living in London. When she got engaged to her French fiance Alexis it is in the South in France where they spent so many summers she wanted to celebrate her wedding. And the French Riviera was the perfect backdrop for her elegant wedding. With her extravagant shoes and dress she stole the show and all the guests had fun all night in the beautiful Villa overlooking the Mediterranean Sea at sunset.

From Lavender And Rose… As part of three days of celebrations on the French Riviera, British bride Marie and her French groom Alexis chose arguably the most beautiful venue on the Côte d’Azur for their August nuptials; the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild The stunning “Belle Epoque” property with its pastel pink facade and stunning French gardens was the backdrop for the glamorous soirée.

Marie & Alexis’ wedding was packed full of lovely details, many with a personal significance for the couple. Marie’s pink flamingo shoes by accessory designer Sophia Webster tied in with the couple’s first date which was at the zoo when Alexis compared Marie’s slender long legs to those of a flamingo!

The location for the wedding weekend was a no-brainer for the couple as Alexis grew up in the South of France and since they met, the couple have been holidaying on the French Riviera every summer.

Marie was extremely careful to make sure that both the French and English speaking guests felt comfortable at each step of the way so she created the bespoke invitations with designer Louise Richardson both in English and French using a blue colour code for the French and pink for the English. A personalised rose gold wax seal and tailor-made floral pocket finished off the feminine floral invitation suite which took inspiration from the rose gardens at the venue.

On the day the speeches were translated by a professional translator and copies were handed out to guests by the planing team.

Details were certainly not spared for the groom and his groomsmen, Marie had arranged for the guys’ initials to be embroidered on their shirt and groom Alexis had the couple’s name and wedding date embroidered into his suit lining. The bride and bridesmaids had personalised bath robes to wear while they were getting ready and enjoying a class of pink bubbles in their suite at the ever so chic Grand Hotel du Cap-Ferat Four Seasons where the bridal preparations took place.

The imposing floral centrepieces and the grandiose floral arch created by florist Wayne Riley were definitely one of the highlights of Marie and Alexis’ big day. The soft pink colour pallet matched perfectly with the venue which was the backdrop for the romantic outdoor dinner.

Guests enjoyed a gastronomic experience provided by famous French caterer Potel & Chabot The buffalo mozzarella and chilled tomato soup was the perfect light, summery entrée which was followed by a grilled sea bas served in a salted crust presented whole to the table and then filleted and plated by the Maitre D’ with seasonal vegetables and olive oil crushed potatoes to accompany. The chocolate crater dessert with peach, caramel and macadamia nuts was a sweet end to a delicious dinner. For their cake designed by Debbie Tapp the couple chose three flavours; carrot cake with lemon filling, lemon cake with limoncello filling and a classic vanilla cake with raspberry jam and buttercream filling. The cake was decorated with sugar flowers and a mother of pearl finish and was presented on a table with a mirror tabletop.

A string quartet performed “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri fo the processional and a lovely version of Bruno Mars’ “Marry You” for the recessional. During dinner an acoustic band played table to table taking requests and building the party atmosphere. The first dance “You and I” by John Legend took place in the fairy-light lit ballroom. With Nick Boot from UK DJs Abroad behind the decks, the set list was an eclectic mix of 90’s British R&B, club-style house music and current commercial hits.

Marie wanted to bring something special to her wedding and surprise guests so we brainstormed ideas for this and settled on a surprise performance by an artist. During dessert, set to music, the artist appeared and began his glitter painting show; using transparent glue to great an invisible design on a black canvas, the tableau came to life when the artist threw glitter onto the canvas revealing a portait of the bride and groom.
