You mean the world to me 31


You’ve got to love a lakeside wedding; all that fresh air, being outdoors at one with nature and the incredible waterside views, it certainly delivers a wildly romantic setting for saying “I Do”.


The talented team behind today’s styled shoot wanted to set a wedding scene that enhanced, rather than over took, their chosen lakeside lodge location. The beauty of exceptional wedding venues such as these is that they need less dressing and so when it comes to choosing your wedding pretty, be sure that is sympathetic to the surroundings and it will simply add flair to the existing scene without being overpowering.


So here’s Tana Photography to tell you more about this luxurious lakeside lodge wedding theme….

Worldwide Wedding Inspiration – Happy Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year!

Last year was the year of the horse in the Chinese zodiac calendar and so it seemed only fitting to share some horse themed wedding day inspiration and ideas for adding a little equestrian elegance to your big day.


This year is the year of the goat/sheep in the Chinese zodiac calendar, so instead of focusing on an animal theme, today is all about drawing inspiration from Chinese culture.


If you got engaged in Hong Kong, or the culture holds a special place in your heart, or if you’d like to add hints of your own Chinese heritage to your wedding day, then feast your peepers over this display of pretty patterned prints, Chinese lanterns, paper parasols, paper cranes, paper flowers and origami, Chinese fortune cookie favours and elegant tea ceremonies!


Add dashes of red to symbolise love, joy and prosperity or the Chinese happiness symbol, which represents the union of a husband and wife together with their families.

Friday Five – Wedding Ideas Marsala Pantone Colour Of The Year 2015

12/12/2014 |

Pantone Marsala

If you haven’t already heard, the peeps over at Pantone (the official authority on all things colour) have announced the 2015 colour of the year.

Drum roll please… And the Pantone Colour of the Year 2015 goes to… Marsala!


Rich, earthy and vino-inspired, the rusty red wine colour of Marsala has undertones of brown and at first glance it can take some warming to. However, once you delve a little deeper this full-bodied beauty really comes to life.


“Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.” – Pantone Colour Institute.


When it comes to weddings, Pantone’s Marsala instantly feels like an obvious autumn/winter wedding colour palette, however teamed with brighter pops of pink and against the white of a wedding, Marsala can really make a year-round statement.


So this week’s Friday Five introduces this seductive colour to you and shows you five areas of your wedding where Marsala could add impact.


“Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth.” – Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute.

Jen Leslie Events:

“Perfectly coordinated by Jen Leslie Events and beautifully captured by Tonie Christine Photography, this Anthropology-inspired shoot shows off the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest with a romantic, feminine touch. Portraying a bridal luncheon, all the little details compliment springtime in Seattle – a time that can still be chilly but blossoms are beginning to reappear promising better weather to come. So tea was served to warm the guests, alongside berries and lemonade.”


“Hosted at The Corson Building the simplicity of the space was brought to life with gorgeous bouquets from Columbia City Bouquet that elegantly combined soft pinks with the grit of ferns – true NW greenery.”

Top of the morning to you! With The Cheltenham Gold Cup starting today (a popular date on the calendar with the Irish) and St Patrick’s Day on Monday next week, it seemed only fitting to look to our neighbours across the Irish Sea for this month’s worldwide wedding inspiration.


Famous for St Patrick, countless castles and stunning churches, its beautiful wind-swept coastline and craggy cliffs, grey skies and gorgeous green countryside, a rich literary history, Irish dancing, horse racing, shamrocks, good luck, friendly locals, welcoming pubs, and of course Guinness! Whether you’re holding your nuptials in Ireland or simply want to inject the essence of The Emerald Isle into your big day style, the rich culture can create a beyond-beautiful theme.


Represent the spirit of Ireland with rich wintery shades of green or light heather hues, teamed with fabulous flower crowns, rustic bouquets and centerpieces, natural ethereal elements and Celtic cross details.
