Molly & Patrick   ♥   Sonoma, USA

Photographer:   onelove photography


Just like many couples before them Molly and Patrick chose to have a destination wedding so that they could enjoy guaranteed sunshine on their big day and celebrate their special occasion outdoors.


So they said farewell to their beloved Chicago city and its more temperamental temperatures and jetted off with their nearest and dearest to tie the knot al fresco at the rustic Beltane Ranch in Sonoma, just an hour outside of San Fran.


The pretty peach theme and perfectly fitting vintage touches purely accentuated the lovingly restored ranch house backdrop and breathtaking vineyard surroundings. Thankfully the oh-so-talented onelove photography team were also on hand to beautifully capture all of this wonderful wedding pretty!

Hadley & Kal   ♥   Los Angeles, USA

Photographer:   Megan L Photo


Sometimes the key to a great wedding is simplicity and that is exactly how the talented photographer of today’s sweet nuptials described this darling Los Angeles Temple wedding day.


Megan L Photo:

“Hadley and Kal’s short, but sweet Los Angeles Temple wedding was planned in only two months! They went for simplistic, and put more importance on the love that they shared than on anything else.”


Wide beaming smiles were worn the whole day through by not only Hadley and Kal but by each of their guests too. Fun, love and togetherness are the main ingredients for creating a successful and memorable wedding day and that’s exactly the recipe that today’s super-cute couple went for, and there’s no denying that the beautiful clear blue skies helped to deliver a bright and breezy, summer party feel.

Gabrielle & Gareth   ♥   Phuket, Thailand

Photographer:   Hilary Cam Photography


Of all the beautiful sandy shores there are in the world upon which to tie the knot, the destination ceremonies in Thailand always look like pure wedded bliss.


The gorgeous Gabrielle and Gareth, like many couples, decided to get married abroad as it provided a midway point for their families who are from opposite corners of the globe – South Africa and Australia. The picturesque island of Phuket was their destination, the secluded beach of Kata Noi Bay was to be their dreamy big day setting.


Gabrielle looked every bit the beautiful boho bride with a delicate headdress, floating veil and a chic and unique layered gown. Oh and of course, who could forget her strappy gold Choo’s and matching clutch bag – the ultimate in finishing touches!


As always, today’s flyaway couple added their own personal touch to their destination wedding with brightly coloured sunglasses and fans as favours for their guests and they enchanced their blissful beachfront wedding ceremony with traditional Jewish customs. The wedding party then headed on to the pure white sands to watch with wonder as the sun set over the ocean to a vibrant display of pink, violet and scarlet hues – destination wedding perfection!

Karen & Michael   ♥   Georgia, USA

Photographer:   Brandy Angel Photography


Natural, rustic, woodland weddings – how you make our hearts sing! This bright and breezy take on the classic boho bridal look is without doubt one of the most popular trends on the wedding scene this year.


Karen and Michael tied the knot at a lovingly restored dairy farm that originates from the 1800’s, creating a wonderfully rustic reception. Their daughters epitomised prairie perfection in boho bridesmaid dresses, au natural accessories and a pair of stylish cowboy boots.


To really rock the rustic wedding theme, ensure your flower crowns and bouquets feature an abundance of garden green foliage whilst bridesmaids all dressed in white will purely emphasise the organic impression. Team these meadow-worthy details with a pale pastoral-inspired palette and a farmyard reception with a village fete atmosphere to create your own countryside chic wedding.

Lia & Reza   ♥   Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Photographer:   Julie Comfort of Comfort Studio


Sometimes you only need to lay your eyes on one single wedding photograph for you to know that what you see before you is going to be Amazing (yes, with a capital A!).


Of course you guessed right…today’s delightful destination day in Costa Rica is beyond-doubt one of those wonderful weddings and I guarantee it will have you instantly obsessed.


Reza proposed to Lia whilst on a vacation together in Costa Rica and so it seemed only right to hot-foot-it back to this little piece of paradise that they hold dear to their hearts, along with their close family and friends for their nuptials.


They held their darling day at the luxury beach resort of Reserva Conchal; ‘a spectacular resort nestled between the lush tropical forests of Costa Rica and the shimmering Pacific Ocean, with pristine stretches of ivory sand overlooking the Catalinas Islands.’ Sounds all-kinds-of-dreamy right? Well it certainly was and with a little help from wedding planner extraordinaire Weddings Costa Rica they produced a heart achingly beautiful day to remember!


Every fabulous feature is seriously swoon-worthy; the delicate combination of pretty purple hues against crisp white tones with a hint of metallic is simply perfection and Lia and Reza’s big day style complimented their modern vintage theme impeccably with Lia rocking a gorgeously graceful gown along with a stylish flower crown.


The oh-so-talented Julie of Comfort Studio was also there to capture every magical moment of this breathtaking beachside day.

Laura & Ramin   ♥   Sayulita, Mexico

Photographer:   Dekker Photography


Mexico has long been topping the popularity charts for destination weddings and it’s not hard to see why; with a year-round tropical climate, sundrenched white beaches lapped by clear azure waters and an abundance of hotel and villa options combined with warm Mexican hospitality and delectable cuisine, this is one lovely locale.


Laura and Ramin decided to go off the beaten tourist path in Mexico for their destination wedding and tied the knot on the secluded sandy beach of sunny Sayulita – a charming fishing village situated on the west coast and famed for its surfing.


Traditional Mexican charisma is in abundance here and today’s couple ensured that their day represented the local culture with a wooden Mexican ‘La Boda’ wedding sign and ‘Novia’ and ‘Novio’ bride and groom seat signs and of course customary Mexican mariachi musicians sporting silver studded charro suits and sombreros to entertain their guests.


Your wedding guests will love it if you add some destination details to your day like Laura and Ramin did; getting married abroad is truly unique and by showcasing the lovely local style you will really give your wedding party a day to remember.
