Natalia and John, a foodie yoga-loving couple from New Jersey, knew exactly how they wanted to celebrate their wedding day. A family gathering style party with relaxed vibes and a natural flow, local seasonal food and lots of it, live music throughout, a clean minimalist aesthetic and nature wild nature.  It was emotional, it was breathtaking and an absolute dream to design.

The elopement session inspired by early 20th century wanderers and gypsy caravans. We styled the campsite using eclectic fabrics, rugs and cushions in earthy tones.  The bride wore an original 1900's gown from L'arca and the bouquet was made up of hand-picked wildflowers from the desert. 

Minimalist. Romantic. Informal.

WARNING. THIS IS NOT A STYLED SHOOT. 

We just style our weddings to look that way, even on a low budget.  This wedding will change your opinion of the word minimalist, I absolutely guarantee it.

Today I am sharing tips on how to create a festive tablescape without accumulating any waste whatsoever. Yes, it's absolutely possible! Nothing was thrown away after this session and nothing was bought apart from the seasonal fruit and nuts that we later ate.

What would be the most important thing for you in your wedding?

For Susana and Rodolfo, it was to have their family and friends present. This fun-loving couple from Venezuela, now living in Manchester wanted to keep things simple and memorable.  They wanted to spend time with each and every guest and show them the best time ever as they would be travelling across the Atlantic to celebrate with them.

Do you believe in love at first sight?

A decade ago, A young Sara and Pablo met through a friend in common.  From the very first moment, there was a strong connection between them. It was the end of September in 2007, they had just spent the day together and neither of them wanted it to end. Pablo gave Sara half of a paper love heart. He told her to return it to him the next time they saw each other...Ever since that day, they have been inseparable.

Say goodbye to pre wedding stress

Say goodbye to pre wedding stress

A very good friend of mine gave me the idea for this post, when she said something along the lines of how stressful it had been organising her wedding and that when it was over, she was sure she would find something else to stress over.

A few years ago, I would have completely agreed.  But now, I truly believe that worrying and stress doesn't have to be a part of our lives.  Stress is not good for us and it can be overcome if we just dedicate some time to ourselves.  Want to know which three ways helped me become a more positive and happier person?
