An Enchanting West Virginia Vineyard Wedding – Lauren and Justin

Last year we launched our very first Instagram competition where a special Bride could win a pair of lace boots of their choice. Today I have the pleasure to share with you the stunning wedding of our competition winner Lauren who was married in the most magical setting, West Virginia's Daniel Vineyards. Filled with beautiful and whimsical details, including butterflies and a vintage floral wreath created by Lauren's mom, Lauren and Justin's special day was just jaw droppingly gorgeous. Lauren even had a 'Flower Grandpa' to honor her incredible veteran Grandfather! The whole day was just the perfect celebration of a love which started back when Lauren and Justin were teenagers in high [...]

A Vintage Summer Fete Inspired Wedding – Andrea and John

Every time I read one of our Bride's wedding stories something jumps out at me about their own unique special day and personality. When reading about Andrea & John's amazing wedding at Brinkburn Priory it was the sense of fun and passion which was infused into every little detail of their wedding day and that fact that they just sound like the warmest, friendliest and full of fun couple you can meet. You can tell from the photos that this wedding was a blast (I wish I could have been there!). So much thought was put into every little detail and Andrea even made and designed her own stationery, favours and table [...]

A Jane Austen Inspired Wedding – Emily and Matt

Oh, do I have a treat for your eyes today. This wedding, it is simply breathtakingly gorgeous. When Emily told us her wedding theme would be 'Jane Austen with a Gothic, Corpse Bride twist' we were beside ourselves with excitement to share it with you! I had so much trouble whittling down the amazing images by Leslie Lockhart Photography for this real bride feature. Emily & Matt's beautiful wedding brought the English charm of Jane Austen to the stunning Martha Washington Inn in Virginia and each thoughtful, handcrafted detail encapsulates the romance and heritage of her novel's perfectly. Emily chose to wear an incredible gown by Essence of Australia which was just [...]

Romantic Vineyard Wedding – Chloe and Dennis

There is something utterly romantic about a wedding set in a beautiful vineyard amidst falling leaves and washed in soft autumnal light. Chloe & Dennis chose to say 'I do' against this gorgeous backdrop in New South Wales, Australia, and their wedding day was filled with so many beautiful personal touches. Of course in Australia, the autumn falls in May so it was wonderful to see the rich hues of gold in so many of these gorgeous photos taken by Erin Latimore Photography. Chloe chose to wear a classic strapless dress with an ivory guipure lace overlay, paired of course with a pair of show stopping 'Goodnight Sweetheart' lace over the knee [...]

Brenna & Phil’s Blue and Silver Winter Wedding

Snow, a winter's evening sky, and twinkling lights reflecting on silver and blue...Complete that with the most romantic proposal story, the intimate nature of the ceremony (Brenna's brother acted as officiant), the cutest little flower girl (their daughter) and you have a wedding day which is not only beautiful but the perfect celebration of the deep love between this wonderful couple. Brenna and Phil's nighttime winter wedding in snowy New York state certainly had us swooning in the House of Elliot studio and we are honoured to share their wedding story with you. Bride Brenna's beautiful wedding look was timeless and elegant and she chose to wear our 'Evangeline Elliot' white lace [...]
