Kirsty & Fergus ♥ Amalfi Coast, Italy
Photographer: Oli Sansom
Not only is Fergus and Kirsty’s wedding utterly ‘words can hardly describe it’ beautiful but Kirsty perfectly sums up some of the reasons why a destination day can be the best way to tie the knot.
Halfway through planning a traditional big white wedding at home, their dreams of an intimate Italian getaway could no longer be ignored and so they bravely changed direction and jetted off to the picture-postcard town of Positano, etched into the awe-inspiring cliffs of the Amalfi Coast, for a relaxed, hassle free and downright darling day instead.
Walking hand in hand through the winding whitewashed cobbled streets with passing villagers cheering and taking photos, Kirsty and Fergus look on top of the world. They said their vows on a cliff top terrace, with sweeping views of the sparkling sea – seriously romantic!
Oh and I must mention Kirsty’s divine dress (that she wears so effortlessly, like she was born to wear it), which is so fitting for the style of their day, especially with its beautiful beaded belt shimmering in the sunlight – pure Positano perfection.
Heidi & Rick ♥ San Diego, USA
Photographer: Raw Fusion Studio
When it comes to engagement shoots the ones that I love to share are those that are literally bursting with a couple’s personality or that make a wonderful worldwide location the heart of the engagement shoot story. Hopefully these two key elements present you with an abundance of wanderlust ideas as inspiration for your own shoot before your upcoming destination wedding.
Today’s trendy love shoot ticks both the personality and the lovely locale box and displays some serious San Diego style.
Lovers of all-things vintage, Heidi and Rick headed to Sante Fe train station with the super-talented Raw Fusion Studio team. This Spanish Colonial Revival station provided a picturesque backdrop to the antique twist of their theme.
Next stop was Silo in Makers Quarter, a dynamic and original urban space in the East Village. A hub for vibrant creativity, this colourful corner of the metropolis brought Heidi and Rick’s character to life.
Whilst arriving at your wedding on horseback might be a jump too far for you, a subtle nod towards horse-inspired detailing could create a unique wedding theme – check out some equestrian wedding theme ideas here.
Take inspiration from the oversized blush blooms complete with a pretty peach ribbon that perfectly matches the center of the flowers and compliments the groom’s tie. And whilst we’re on the topic of the groom, how about your darling displaying some Lord of the Manor panache in a checked 3piece suit?!

I absolutely loved being a bridesmaid. I didn’t really dream about being a bride when I was a little girl, nor did I dress up in white and parade around the garden with a pillowcase on my head as a make-shift veil, pretending to be a wife-to-be like a lot of my friends! I did however truly long to be a flower girl, and then a bridesmaid once I was no longer young or cute enough to be a flower girl.
The idea of being a bridesmaid seemed hugely appealing; getting to wear a glamorous gown (I should use the term ‘glamorous’ lightly, it was the 80′s when I was young enough to be a flower girl!) and being such a special part of what seemed to be the best party ever, looked like something I would really enjoy.
Well, I didn’t have to hang around for long. The privileged day of me becoming a bridesmaid, finally came at the ripe old age of…wait for it…29! So yes, there was a lot of expectation on my end when one of best friends popped the question. I of course said yes, with tears in my eyes.
This morning began with some Scottish patriotism in the form of wonderful wedding inspiration dedicated to bonnie Scotland, to celebrate the opening of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow last night. The Scotland-inspired wedding ideas don’t stop there….
You’ll officially be enchanted with this ethereal Scottish castle wedding styled shoot; captured to perfection by the super-talented, fine art photographers from Glass Jar Photography.
The clever combination of contemporary touches and nostalgic notions creates a wildly beautiful scene, overflowing with atmosphere and romanticism.
Recreate the feeling of countryside chic with differing textures and checks, fine woolens against chunky wellies; the perfect contradiction to the whimsical windswept locations, soft muted tones, dainty flower crowns, graceful vintage jewellery and delicately detailed dresses, whipped up by the breeze.
