Beautiful Pink & Blue Tuscany Villa Wedding

Beautiful Pink Blue Tuscany Villa Wedding


WWW readers Meredith and Eric are huge advocates for destination weddings and when you see the images from their big day in Italy, I think you’ll see why. They chose their location very carefully so that their friends and family were close enough to explore the lovebirds’ favourite city Florence and were also able to wander through Tuscany’s mesmerising countryside. They really wanted to show their guests a good time and filled their loved-up week with activities such as a pizza night, welcome drinks and a gourmet picnic and pool party. Bellissimo!

The special day took place in a picturesque villa with sprawling grounds, tall trees and the Tuscan hills as a backdrop. The soft pastel colours and exquisite décor created an atmosphere of romance and the abundance of full blooms and greenery completed the classic look and style. Meredith wore a beautiful lace two-piece mermaid gown with bright blue high heels and Eric was dressed in a custom-made royal blue suit. I think I gasped out loud when I saw the masterpiece of a wedding cake – a Millefiori, traditional Neapolitan pastry treat – and the way it was prepared in front of the couple and their loved ones. I thought it was extremely sweet that the bride’s parents were able to FaceTime into the ceremony after they sadly couldn’t travel to Italy and that their participation was a surprise even for Meredith. So gorgeous.

Thank you so much, Chloe Murdoch Photography, for these spectacular photographs.

About Us



I’m Tor and my wonderful husband to be is Chris….. (I feel so grown up saying husband to be – I’m 28 so probably should have grown up already… but hey!) I am a Science teacher from the South East (standard, slightly nerdy, very sensible) and Chris is a musician from the South West (much more glamorous!).
We met in the summer of 2014 when I went on holiday with my Mum….. to a couple’s hotel (super awkward) and there was a superbly tanned, polite and handsome Turkish man serving pre-dinner cocktails. My mum even commented on the perfect English that he spoke…..

Whimsical Pastel Travel Inspired Wedding

Whimsical Pastel Travel Wedding


Happy Friday folks. We’re just a hop skip and a jump away from the weekend and to celebrate we have a joy filled, whimsical wedding filled with pastel colours. It doesn’t really get much better than that does it now?

WWW readers Steph and Tim chose to hold their 13th August 2016 wedding at the beautiful Pollok House in Glasgow. They envisioned a vintage travel theme for their wedding and went all out crafting their dream day.  Set upon a glam gold sequin table runner they added pretty flowers in metallic vases, customised globes, stationery and props. It looked so stunning. They also added sweet pastel ribbons to the chairs for a really special touch.

One of my very fave elements has to be the gorgeous floral arrangements, particularly Steph’s dreamy bouquet. In peach and yellow tones, there were roses and foliage, tied up perfectly with tassel ribbon. Swoon. Steph chose to wear a pretty Mark Lesley frock with a classic veil and pearls. Tim looked really handsome in a blue Next suit, peach tie and tan shoes. How stylish.

Many thanks to The Gibsons for treating us to these incredible shots.

Elegant & Luxe Deep Red & Midnight Blue Winter Wedding

Hackett Groom BOA Boutique Bride autumn winter wedding Merriscourt Cotswolds Elegant Luxe Red Blue Winter Wedding


Louise and Ben wanted to share a relaxed and cosy celebration with their closest family and friends. They chose to wed at stunning barn venue, Merriscourt, on 26th November 2016. Louise and Ben both went for bespoke outfits, with Louise’s dress created by BOA Boutique and Ben getting a bespoke suit from Hackett.

Whilst the pair were blessed with a beautiful sunny day, they planned so well for losing the November light early in the day and decked out the venue in festoon and pea lights which made for such a warm, festive atmosphere. Taking inspiration from their berry decorated naked cake, they used lots of deep reds and midnight blues, just perfect for the season. Do look out for the incredible hanging floral installation too.

Thanks so much to Benni Carol Photography for the super images.

Pretty & Light Pink Country House Wedding

Pretty Light Pink Country House Wedding


I love that as an alternative to a marquee wedding, this lovely pair chose a venue with a room lined with fabric. It’s a win win, with the marquee look and yet the security of being indoors away from the elements.

Rita and Richie were married on the 3rd September 2016 at Horetown House in Ireland. The setting was truly magnificent, with it’s surrounding rolling countryside and the light and bright house perfect for their personal ceremony and following celebrations. The reception room looked so very pretty, with pale pink and green lanterns, soft festoon lighting and ornate chairs. Delicate blooms in jars decorated the tables alongside log slices, candles and elegant stationery. Wow.

Rita looked incredible in her lace sleeved gown and sweet hair vine, while Richie chose a dapper black suit and pink tie, which coordinated with the running theme. Gorgeous.

Jonathan Ryder, thanks so much for sharing these dreamy images with us.
