real wedding – mustard and claret colours…

Real weddings.   We love them.   Which is a good thing because it’s our job!   Actually it’s a great thing because it’s our job.   This is the time of the wedding season when the photos from our weddings earlier in the season start coming in thick and fast – hoorah!

I love to see the official photos and spend a good deal of time sorting through them to pick out my favourites for that wedding’s real wedding page here on the website.  I know, it’s a tough job and I get to do it – yay!

Yesterday I downloaded 1,200+ (yep over 1,200 photos!) by the lovely Anna & Mike of Luna Weddings from Alena & Dave’s wedding here a few weeks ago in June.   You’ll be seeing a lot of these photos over the coming weeks and months because a) they’re too gorgeous not to share b) it would be rude not to…

Their spectacular colours of mustard and claret sing out from their fab photos.  So today I’m just going to do a couple of my faves to give you a taste of the loveliness to come.

And how about this?  Have you heard of a first look?   When the couple take a couple of moments to see each other before the ceremony.   It’s quite a popular thing in America.   There’s a variation on that which is a “No Look First Look” which looks (haha) a bit like this…

So the couple make contact without seeing each other.   Usually round a corner or in this case round a door.   Emosh…

I said just a couple of pics, but I can’t resist a final one, our bride and groom in front of our salavaged door which they used for their table plan and which we placed in front of the water feature on the terrace.

We love a bit of wedding passion here at Ever After!

So stay tuned for more from this wedding soon, I’ll be back to let you know when it’s up on the real weddings page with a write up of how Alena and Dave planned their wedding.   I’ll give you a clue – there was gin.  A lot of gin.   A cart load of gin…
