An Unforgettable Wedding Ceremony

It’s really a great honor for me to be invited to a friend’s wedding ceremony last month. After I came back from the spousal, I was so excited that I couldn’t calm down for a long time.

garden-wedding-decorations-ideas

Now let me first introduce the two leading roles of this story. Mr. Philips and Miss Humphrey. A very handsome boy and a very chic girl, aren’t they. Their stories are so romantic that even I sometimes couldn’t believe it. Just like what is playing in the soap opera, both the bride and groom are animal lovers. They came across each other 3 years ago when they walk the dogs in the park. When they caught the first sight of each other, it seemed that something incredible emerged between them. That’s just digression.

brilliant-vintage-wedding-photography

Yeah, see their wedding photos. The pretty animals couldn’t miss the wedding ceremony. Look at the charmingly naïve golden retriever and the cute today, hahaha , happy family.

rustic-long-wedding-dresses

The brides would like to have an elegant wedding ceremony ,so they choose white as the principal color tone for their wedding ceremony. The bride pick a floor-length white gown and the groom wears an ivory suite. It just looks like that they are someone from the fairy tale———Snow white and Prince Charming.

Uniuqe-DIY_wedding_invitations

Let me get a word in. The wedding invitation they sent me few months ago was very very impressive. Like some other young couples who would like to have unique wedding invitations, so they choose DIY wedding cards. What they printed on the wedding invitations were their two dogs. Innovated and memorable idea.

To the occasion, you can easily find that they set their wedding in the open air. The beautiful scenery in the garden provide a fabulous background for the romantic event.

Our groom group!!! Handsome gentlemen.

The new couple also pay attention to other things such as reception and something so on. I think when I hold my wedding ,I will make it even better. Looking forward to meet my Mr right. Thank you god.

Melbourne Vintage Wedding Ideas

Preface: Melbourne, Australia, may be a wedding resort for various people. If you got a chance, how will you prepare you Melbourne wedding? This article will set as the clue.

We’re pretty fond of this Australian wedding sent over by none other than the stellar Tim Coulson. Emma and James wanted their wedding day (after 8 long years!) to be a day of warmth and fun, and it seems pretty clear they achieved that goal. One idea we particularly love: handing off over-sized balloons to the flower girls in lieu of bouquets or baskets.

From the bride, Emma: James and I met in an Irish pub while we were both living in Amsterdam. Eight years later on my birthday, James wrote me the most special birthday card ever. He asked me to marry him and of course I said yes! We both agreed that we didn’t want to wait too long for the big day, so we got straight to work and started planning, making, collecting and creating. We both loved the whole process. The main goal was to have a day that really reflected us as a couple and was a warm, fun celebration of our love and commitment to each other.

We’ve been city people the whole of our relationship so far, so it felt right to have a city wedding. The FitzroyTown Hall was the second venue we looked at and we both knew it was perfect. The history and the architecture drew us in and really set the theme for the day. I had my dress made in America by Stephanie James Couture. I was after a dress with a vintage feel, but also felt a bit like a party dress. I had to be able to dance in it! I also needed shoes that didn’t make me feel like a giant next to James, so I designed them myself on the Shoes of Prey website, which was so much fun. Anton’s was recommended to James and the shop was an experience in itself! He had so much fun choosing a suit that absolutely fit all his criteria, especially the one about it not being like his work suits!

We were so excited to have so many special people travel to Melbourne for the big day. We decided it would be fun to all travel to the venue together and one of our clearest and favorite memories from the day was that bus trip. After a very relaxing girly morning with my family and flowergirls, I saw James for the first time. I’ll never forget the feeling as I walked towards James standing on the back of the old London double decker bus, with everyone watching out the windows. The atmosphere on the bus was buzzing with excitement and it’s definitely one of our favorite parts of the day!

The decor was a collaborative effort. We wanted a colour to be a feature, rather than have a colour theme as such. The amazing Rebecca from Canary Jane’s Flowers was super excited about the colour theme and the flowers reflected that. The napkins were an idea I had. I thought it would be a fun project for Mum and I to do together. We got them cut out and realised it was a bigger job than we bargained for in the time we had, so we ended up getting them sewn locally. I’m so glad we did it though because everyone took them home as a keepsake. I’ve seen them in suit pockets and heard of them already being reused at friend’s houses! The candy buffet was a very popular spot on the night. A few times I realised there were more adults filling their lolly bags than there were standing at the bar!

If I had one piece of advice to couples planning a wedding, it would be to really think about who you are as people and what’s important to you, bundle it all together and add the people you love. You can’t lose!
