The clocks go forward this weekend here in the UK, which marks the official start of British Summer Time – hurrah, bring on the sunshine!


This led me to thinking that if you’re getting married on a day when the clocks change, or maybe New Year’s Eve, or possibly you just love vintage clocks, then a subtle time theme or a display of charming clock faces could make a creative and decorative wedding feature.


So this week’s Friday Five features five ways to incorporate clocks into your big day. From ceremony backdrops to wedding table centrepieces, show your guests that it is wedding o’clock with these cute clock themed wedding ideas!

Artful watercolour inspiration has been making a splash across the wedding world in recent years.


Subtle watercolour effects paint a pretty picture for any wedding theme and would work wonderfully against the bright sunshiny backdrop of a destination wedding. Today’s styled shoot from onelove photography shows you how to perfectly incorporate hints of pale painted ombre with bolder blocks of colour for a wow-factor wedding.


Start by selecting the soft hues you’d like to use for your watercolour palette and build in paler shades or cheerful hues as a contrast…and voila you have your master piece!

I hardly know where to begin with this shoot! It’s bursting with pops of warm weather brights, every single photograph literally has you longing for the joy of sunshiny days and the whole theme is inspired by travel, globes, maps and summer trips to one of Europe’s most vibrant cities…Amsterdam!


Throw in some seriously-stylish vintage inspiration, a cheerful bicycle or two and a hint of whimsy and you have all the quirky, creative ideas you need for a spectacular destination wedding!


Erin Johnson Photography:

“We LOVE summer travel!  Myself and my husband Paul, have traveled all through Europe and so we decided to pull a bit of inspiration from one of our favorite places – Amsterdam!  There’s just something about riding bicycles on cobblestone streets and of course the tulips.  Mix in our addiction to all things vintage, in this case: vintage luggage, cameras, globes, collected stamps and travel tags and some of our very favorite vendors and you have this little inspiration shoot!  We’re calling it ‘Summer In Amsterdam!’ – ENJOY!”

There are some seriously snowy situations going on across the globe. A few flurries have fallen across the UK and our neighbours just across the (frozen!) pond in NYC have been engulfed in a snowstorm this whole week. Of course blizzards can bring all sorts of impracticalities, but in the right setting it sure does look pretty!


To be in keeping with this wild winter weather, today is all about snowy white weddings. A destination wedding needn’t just mean sunshine and the seaside; a winter wonderland wedding is just as spectacular and awe-inspiring as any warm weather wedding.


So if you’re newly engaged and wondering where to get married abroad, hopefully this snow white wedding inspiration will help you to decide if snowfall could be the backdrop to your big day and if you believe it could, then be sure to make the most of the magical white wonderland with these cool ideas…


  • Opt for frosty looking flowers or beautiful berry toned blooms to compliment your icy surroundings.


  • A cosy bridal cape is a must. It’s almost reason enough to get married in cold weather!


  • Cuddle up with your beau under a blanket, wrap your arms around each other to keep warm or just snuggle up together and be warmed by each other’s love, making sure to capture these magical moments on camera!


  • Use your snowy destination as direction for your wedding theme.


  • Use snowflakes for fabulous photo ops with your rings embedded in a ball of snow or have a playful snowball fight!
