Alyona and Sasha are both photographers from Moscow but when it came to their own wedding they decided to celebrate the start of their life together in sunny Spain with close friends and family. They hired a gorgeous villa in a national park and spent a week swimming, relaxing and playing games, culminating in this beautiful celebration captured by KATYA AVRAMENKO. The bride and her girlfriends made everything for the wedding themselves. Looks like one amazingly fun celebration if you ask me!

Julie & Mark had an intimate wedding in Hawaii, and to celebrate this the mother of the bride wanted to throw the couple a large cocktail reception back in their hometown of Newport Beach, so that their friends and family could share in the joy. ESTHER SUN captured all the beautiful details… we don’t have too many shots of the happy couple as they wanted to keep them private but there is so much inspiration to take from this gorgeous reception so I just had to share! To honour their Hawaiian celebration they brought in island sentiments; had tropical floral arrangements, palm tree accents, a pineapple motif, and an island steel drummer. Looks like the perfect tropical chic theme to me!

We’re starting off the week with this beautifully lush wedding in tropical Queensland by the always lovely KELLY ADAMS, with some gorgeous vibrant florals by one of favourite Australian florists COTTON BLOSSOM STUDIO. Alysa & Dan found the planning aspect of their wedding a little challenging to start with as they didn’t really have a ‘vision’ for their day, but once they realised that the most important aspect was creating a wonderful atmosphere that reflected their easy going and loving natures, it all fell into place. When their ‘perfect’ venue was found the sweet and authentic wedding they wanted came together.
Alysa says, “The day was a complete success, it was everything & more than we had imagined. There were a few small dramas, but nothing that we couldn’t overcome by having a true awareness of what the day is really all about. We knew what our vendors were capable of because we had carefully selected them because of their particular talent and creativity. Everything surpassed our expectations. We loved each and every element of our wedding and would honestly not have had it any other way. Kelly, was more a friend than a ‘wedding photographer’ and we were comfortable enough to be ourselves, which resulted in more natural photographs. Nicky’s styling, The Old Church and Radio Club Band made that night what many of our guests called ‘the best wedding they had ever been to.’ We had no unrealistic expectations and we didn’t worry ourselves with the finer details. We just lived in the moment & had fun!“
