Beautiful Canadian Wedding with Awesome Groom and Groomsmen Attire!

Hi everybody! Have a look at this fantastic wedding that took place in Canada. I literally fell in love with the groom and his groomsmen’s attire and I am a great fan of those deep purple touches—well, I’m not really the pastel kind of girl. The pictures were taken by Lin and Leon of Orange Memories!

The wedding took place on October, 3, 2014, in Hycroft Vancouver. Here’s the story of the couple:
We met in culinary school 3 years ago. Ian as a chef, and savannah as a pastry chef. Our first project together was about Bacon, which really launched our love for food and each other. We got engaged one year ago in Disney, florida, he proposed in front of the magic castle as the last firework went off at the end of the evening. We live in Vancouver together and own a cat, Donatello. We plan to open a bakery/café one day.

Name one thing you regret…

I wouldn’t have made my own invitations. I sent months getting everything together and making every part from scratch, including the save the dates, which were magnets. It was so time consuming, they were beautiful but I would have preferred a little more free time.

… And one thing you’re really happy you did.

Getting a wedding coordinator. No matter the size of your wedding or the style, having someone to take care of all the little details so you can enjoy the big day is so important. It takes all the weight off of your shoulders, just make sure its someone you trust and who shares your style.

Wedding in the Woods near Barcelona

Yeah, I’m back!! Sorry, I know it’s been a long time, but it looked like I really needed that time. I really do want to go on with the blog, despite the day job, the baby, and you know, trying to keep up friendships… But I must admit I can’t promise I’ll be as regular as before. So now more than ever, the best thing for you to do if you want to be kept informed about the latest updates here, is to enter you email somewhere on this website to be notified. But you know, it’s up to you.

Today’s wedding took place near Barcelona. I really really loved the spot, this little church in what looks like the deepest depths of the (Catalonia) forest. Let’s take a quick history break, apparently the church is an ancient construction from the XVII-th century called Pou de Glaç, where people used to store the ice. It was an intimate party with only 30 guests and the reception was celebrated in the woods near the construction. I hope that you’ll enjoy it and that it’ll inspire you (mojito soaps as a wedding favour? yes please!) Photography: Raquel Benito.

Here’s from Carla and Carles about the kind of wedding they wanted.

Well, that was crystal clear since day 1. A special location and a few number of guests (family and close friends, basically). No obligations and things like that. Birthday party-like, but celebrating love instead of years. We were very lucky to be able to celebrate our engagement in a pretty magical place in the middle of the forest in Catalonia.

Name one thing you regret…

We know it sounds cliché, but nothing. Second thought: Ok, maybe if we had eaten something during all the afternoon we would sure have appreciated the quality and diversity of our catering. According to everyone else in there, it was yummy. Not kidding, though.

… And one thing that makes you proud.

Getting married in front of our little baby girl (we have a daughter), making our family and close friends feel happy and comfy on our day, hiring Bodas de Cuento to organize everything before and during the wedding, being able to call Marina & Ricky (from Bodas de Cuento) our friends right now, having wonderful memories about that day that will last forever thanks to Raquel Benito and her gorgeous photo essay… and yeah, why not? Having pretty less memories on the “after-party” thanks to tequila”.

Beautiful Artistic Traditional Sikh Wedding

It’s not every day that you’ll see me post a more traditional wedding, but this one is something else. I’ve only discovered about Sikhism about a few months ago, while in India. I’ve always thought that if I had to choose one religion, that would be Buddhism, but I have to say Sikhism is maybe the most respectful, generous and open-minded religion I’ve heard about (but I leave it to Wikipedia to talk to you about it). So today’s wedding is a traditional Sikh wedding, but any religious consideration put appart, it is above all a beautiful and emotional wedding, just as I like them! Let me know your thoughts! The wonderful reportage was done by UK wedding photographer Matthew Jones aka Lucius Fox.

The wedding took place on August 8th, 9th &10th in Birmingham, UK. From Manpreet.
We are quite a thrifty pair, always looking for great deals and bargains whenever we are out shopping. We love everything vintage and shopping in charity shops so I guess thats where our inspiration for our wedding reception came from. We are both technology teachers and love making things ourselves so we made most of the details ourselves. We spent evenings after work, school holidays and weekends making our own newspaper prints for canapés, table decorations, signposts and all the other details for the reception. We even spent some of my Hen party sewing the bunting! Our apartment was taken over by all the things we had made!

Name one thing you regret…

The only thing we’d change about or wedding would be to make it last longer! it really was the best time of our lives and we’re so happy that we can relive it through our wonderful photographs.

… And one thing that makes you proud.

We are most happy that we managed to pull of an alternative Sikh wedding reception. The two ceremonies on the Friday and Saturday were both traditional, and it was important for us to put our own stamp on the reception which we had on the Sunday. We wanted all the details to be about us and our personalities, Daljit chose a pink Ted Baker suit, and my Mehndi (Henna) had swallows in it, which is a lot more ‘me” than the traditional patterns.

Our photographer Matt (Lucius Fox Photography) is awesome, we found him through my Brother, also a photographer. Our photography was really important to us and we wanted someone who’s style would reflect ours. As soon as we saw Matt’s work we fell in love, it is so unique and artistic. Matt was brilliant to work with, so relaxed yet always focused on what he wanted to achieve. We met with him a few times before the wedding and we got on so well with him that we were so comfortable on the wedding day(s).
