Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding by Neil Redfern Photography

I’m practically drooling over the cheese wedding cake in this delightful UK wedding. It looks so inviting and delicious, I might just have to pop over to the deli this afternoon and grab a bite of gourmet brie to indulge myself. Then again, the cheese stack is not the only delight in this sweet wedding held at the lovely Sandhold Oak Barn in Chesire. It’s full of homemade sweets, vintage inspired mismatched centrepieces, and an ice-cream van! Just a whole bunch of prettiness and delicious all round really! Brought to us by Neil Redfern Photography all the way from the UK, it’s the perfect little sunny soiree to get you through your day!

From the photographer: Photographing the wedding of my personal friends is such a privilege, it just takes the enjoyment of a job which I already love to an even more enjoyable level – and so it was when I photographed the friends of my very good friends Natalie & Jack at the beautiful Sandhole Oak Barn in Cheshire, England on one of the warmest days of the year so far – the sun was shining all day! 

I used to work with Jack and mainly through of shared passion for the odd drink, we became really good friends. Seeing him so happy on his wedding day was just brilliant:-) Jack had every reason to be happy, he was marrying the beautiful Natalie (how amazing does Natalie look?!) in front of all their family and friends at one of Cheshire’s best wedding venues on what must have been the hottest day of the year! Not a bad day then. Natalie and Jack had the perfect day and I couldn’t have been happier for them both. Natalie had planned everything to the smallest detail and the day literally couldn’t have gone any better. I was just pleased to be able to photograph it for them both.

From the photographer: Maggie & Haydex met during their undergrad at UBC. They did the same degree so shared many of the same classes. They had been good friends for 4 years before they started dating. Haydex’s original plan was to propose to Maggie on a romantic getaway to the Sunshine Coast. However Maggie found out about the ring before they went on their trip. At the end, he proposed in her bedroom and she said yes!

This next wedding will give all you shabby chic brides out there more than your daily fix. Aside from being incredibly pretty and feminine, it also features a pair of silver Jimmy Choo’s – so I have no doubt it was one dead-set stylish affair. Photographed by Mathew James Photographers, this California wedding is jam packed with so many charming details. From the amazing floral ceremony arch, to the picturesque outdoor setting, to the gorgeous silver and white tablescapes that have us ready to hit the thrift stores for shabby chic finds.

{Cake Inspiration} Ruffled Wedding Cake in Pink & Gray

I would have to say this pretty two tiered concoction with layers and layers of delicate gray, white and pink ombre ruffles literally ‘takes the cake’ as far as I’m concerned. What girl wouldn’t be smitten with this amazing ruffled wedding cake? It’s so pretty.. and whimsical… and ethereal, you want to wrap yourself in it from head to toe!  This will have to be filed under one of my favorites for 3 big swoon-worthy reasons: 1. It has a pretty pastel palette in vintage tones of pink and gray 2. It’s topped with a gorgeous crown of plump peonies, and 3. I love the ombre design – it gives the cake a modern meets vintage vibe all rolled in to one! Yes, I’m sold. Bring down the hammer! That will be ‘one fabulous wedding cake to go‘ thanks!

{Cake Inspiration} Pretty Croquembouche with Spun Sugar

The historical French croquembouche with it’s majestic design and historical origins, will always come in and out of vogue for weddings. We’re seeing a bit of a comeback of late – just like this gorgeous creation from an equally stunning handmade Sydney wedding. I love how the over-the-top design is toned down by displaying it on a rustic-style timber log. And the use of spun sugar and teeny-tiny white flowers give it a magical and whimsical look – a lovely mix of organic, glam and pretty. I expect we will see more croquembouche’s inspired by this year’s glamorous wedding trend making an appearance.

DIY ‘Love Is Sweet’ Guest Favors

It’s DIY Friday and once again we’re delighted to pass the reigns over to the lovely Ashley from Sugar & Cloth who has the prettiest (and sweetest) wedding favors you can easily create yourself!

Sweet DIY Wedding Guest Favors

Today I, Ashley, have an exceptionally simple and practical DIY wedding favor for you. For some brides wedding favors are on high priority, whereas others consider them last. At the end of the day though, they are  simply meant to say ‘thank you for celebrating our love with us’, and what better way to say so than with these Love Is Sweet guest favors–

  • Small gift boxes
  • Sugar cubes
  • Tissue paper
  • Glitter
  • Glue pen
  • Paper tags
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Washi tape (optional)

DIY Guest Favors Sweet Project

 

 1 + 2 | Cut the tissue paper down to size for each box, and then fill the lined boxes with sugar cubes.

3 + 4 | Using a glue pen (I use the Martha Stewart ball point glue pen), write “love is sweet” and then promptly dust with glitter.

5 | Shake off the excess glitter and let dry.

6 + 7 | Fold the sides of the tissue paper down and secure with matching washi tape, and then place the card on top.

8 | Seal the box with a bow and give!
