Nautical Wedding Inspiration

red white and blue bride

With today being Memorial Day, this red, white + blue nautical themed shoot seemed so perfect to share with you lovelies! Nautical is always popular for summer weddings and with the rise in popularity for Sperry Top-Sider shoes to the always on trend stripes, there are lots of great trends to pull together for a fab nautical wedding.

When designing today’s nautical styled shoot, Will & StaceyPink Paisley Events and Cori Cook Floral wanted to do something outside of the box for Colorado – so they decided upon a nautical theme with a very New England vibe for the shoot. The bright colors of the bridesmaid dresses, gorgeous flowers, and rope details were able to steal the show in the midst of the dreary, gray day…

April Showers Bring May Flowers

april showers bring may flowers

Inspired by the phrase “April showers bring May flowers,” the team for this lovely styled shoot (led by stylist Lindsey Zamora and Amanda Jameson Photography) wanted to put together some whimsical garden inspiration for weddings. The upside down umbrella spilling over with flowers is so magical – wait until you see it! So perfect for spring or summer garden weddings! And the bride’s Catherine Deane gown with it’s petal inspired bodice is the perfect dress for any flower lover.

From Lindsay, The pewter bodice in the dress was mimicked by the metal chairs, which gave a great masculine and textual balance to the otherwise overly feminine feel.

Elegant London Wedding: Tamara + Jonno

london wedding

Tamara + Jonno were married down in the crypt of St Paul’s Cathedral with their reception held at the Trafalgar Tavern looking out onto the Thames in central London. Tamara wore one of my favorite Jenny Packham dresses along with her mother’s vintage fur coat. They had two gorgeous Red Routemaster buses take them from the church to the reception…followed by amazing food, beautiful speeches and then a set from their ‘super band’ (a mix of all their friends from different bands playing together).

I just love what their photographer Emma Case had to say about the two of them…

Tamara and Jonno were made for each other. Jonno cried pretty much most of the day and Tamara never stopped smiling. They both just kept looking at each other in total disbelief at how amazing their wedding day was and how amazing it was to be married and how amazing their friends and family were. It was an absolute joy from start to finish to be a part of their day and we love them to pieces.

It’s an obvious one – but I loved the service. You spend so long planning everything around it that you can lose sight that it’s all about the vows. It was so emotional. We got married in the crypt under St Paul’s Catherdal because Jonno’s dad has an MBE, and it is the Crypt of the British Empire. So it was special because it was something his dad could provide for us – but also St Paul’s is a symbol of London, the city we live in and the city we love. It’s brilliant every time we see it to think that it’s now part of our history.

We spent a really long time questioning the decisions we made, as we didn’t want just to have wedding by numbers. It’s easy to get caught up in the hype and do everything by the book – but what’s important is how the day reflects you as a couple. When we got engaged we sat down and talked about what we wanted from the day, and what was important to us. I said speeches. Jonno wanted an hour of old-school music and a green lazer. Both were amazing.

We had a band playing for an hour who were a ‘supergroup’ made up of my friends and Jonno’s friends who played instruments – some of whom had never met before the four rehearsals they had!

On the day don’t stress about a thing – plan it well, write a thorough list... and then you can hand it all over! Everyone will help out on the day, people like little jobs to do – it makes them feel important. However, don’t let everyone take over before then – you don’t need an organizing committee, otherwise you run the risk of it not being ‘your day’.

I promise you are all going to freaking love getting married! I promise you will! I’m jealous of you all that you have this amazing day to come...
