Bree & David   ♥   Bali, Indonesia

Photographer:   PhotoFactory Bali

 

The first thing I noticed when I opened up Bree and David’s beautiful destination wedding photos was the piercing clear-blue sky. There isn’t a single cloud in the sunny sky and it’s that deep, vibrant shade of blue that you just can’t take your eyes off, it’s just that perfect.

 

However…once I started to read this cute couple’s story, I realised that they nearly didn’t have this scorcher of a day as a backdrop to their destination wedding! They were meant to tie the knot the day before but there was a bit of a crazy turn in the weather. Luckily they managed to postpone the entire wedding until the next day.

 

It just shows that when you’re getting married abroad, it doesn’t matter where in the world you choose, you still can’t guarantee or control the weather! But there’s never any need to stress about these things either, as there is always a solution and it couldn’t have worked out better that Bree and David married the following day as they got to enjoy the most glorious day and said “I Do’ with the best of the Balinese sunshine smiling down on them.

Luxury Airport Lounge Review – No.1 Gatwick with BookFHR.com

No.1 Gatwick Airport Lounge Review

 

When you’re getting married abroad it’s a good idea to get to the airport early! This will ensure that you’re feeling stress-free and you won’t be rushing around last minute as having more luggage to juggle than normal might mean that it takes you longer to get to check in and move around the airport.

 

A nice peaceful sit down with a chilled glass of champagne and a bite to eat would be the perfect start to your incredible destination wedding journey wouldn’t it? But where would you find this calming corner when you’re jetting off from one of the UK’s busy airports and will there definitely be some free seats and ones where you can park your wedding dress, suit bag and extra hand luggage next to you without being knocked by hoards of passing travellers?

 

If you want to kick start your destination wedding, honeymoon or upcoming holiday in a relaxing way with a little extra luxury thrown in for good measure then you should visit BookFHR.com and pre-book a visit to one of the UK’s stylish airport lounges.

Left: New York City Ceramic Tile Coasters £19.07 – Tilissimo via Etsy

Right: Boston City Ceramic Tile Coasters £19.07 – Tilissimo via Etsy

 

These beautiful ceramic tile coasters are ‘more then just coasters’ they are ‘little squares of happiness’ says their maker Tilissimo at Etsy, and I would wholeheartedly agree!

 

There are so many delightful styles to choose from, so be sure to take a peek at the Tilissimo at Etsy shop and browse the full collection!

 

I love the travel themed tiles (of course) but I think that they would all make great wedding presents or thank you gifts or they could be used to decorate your wedding tables, one for each guest, to be taken home from your destination wedding as a favour. They would brighten your wedding tables or continue your travel theme and make unusual gifts. The customised number tiles could also be used to display your wedding tables numbers.

 

So if you’ve taken to these tiles as much as me, you’ll be picking up a set for your home, for gifts and for your destination wedding!

There might be sunshiny skies here in the UK today but the blog is boasting all shades of autumn… 

 

This real life bride and groom (Shannon and Al) were hoping to create a stylised ‘day after’ photo shoot and so together with a talented team of vendors they set about achieving this wonderfully bohemian woodland wedding inspiration.

 

The crisp days of early fall delivered an atmospheric light for this romantic rural shoot set within a family owned vineyard at Baiting Hollow, New York.
