Wedding Files: A Spring Soiree


It gives me butterflies to announce that in the spring of next year, I will be marrying the love of my life.

He popped the question in a most spontaneous manner (almost forgetting to get down on one knee ~ thankfully, I reminded him!) the day after Christmas. After careful deliberation, we have decided upon a May 2014 ceremony and garden party with all of our most treasured family and friends who will be traveling far and wide to join us. We are planning an outdoor ‘Spring Soiree’ that is fun, relaxed and above all, romantic. The look I envision is a vintage meets boho meets rustic romantic garden party! Did that make any sense?

Because I am very far away from my family and friends around the world, who won’t be able to get involved in the planning of our big day, I have decided to document my ideas right here over the coming months to share some of the gorgeous inspiration I have come across that are forming the basis of our Spring Soiree. For me, this is a way of documenting my thoughts and ideas, and of really pinpointing the atmosphere we are hoping to create our ourselves and our guests. We want our guests to feel special and appreciated for coming to join us as we make our commitment to each other. Doing this is my way of getting everyone involved in some small way and generating excitement for our big day ahead of time. So, now that we have decided upon the concept I am thrilled to bring to you the first of many posts in the ‘Wedding Files’ series! Soak up these beautiful images and spot the little notes I have made along the way.

    Oh Holly, I can already see a really beautiful, romantic wedding. Love the wildflowers and touch of lace. I got married in May too. According to the Chinese calendar, that is a very auspicious month. So looking forward to seeing you in London. xx

    HI Holly,
    I love your style and wedding ideas. It looks so gorgeous. A relaxed approach is so lovely.
