50 shades of pink

Serious oohing and aaahing in IW HQ this morning, looking through these dreamy images from Austin and Annamarie´s intimate and tres chic wedding celebrated at Cotton Lounge in Figueretes....so many gorgeous shades of pink from dusty pinks and nudes, to coral and hot fuchsia. I think the ceremony arch is one of my favourite EVER (!!) and those hours spent with both Annamaria and the florist to get it spot on were so worth it in the end. I also think the mix of different flowers works beautifully and with the sparking Mediterranean in the backdrop and the white and pale pink decor of the venue, the overall result is so pretty, feminine and stylish. Special thanks to our wonderful florists, Ramo de Flores and our amazing decor team, Velvet Circus. 

Fatamorgana

Adela Baraja who shot this wedding has a strong background in fashion photography and it really shows in these super chic images of Tim and Katie´s wedding.

It was a dream set up for Adela as the ceremony was held at the cliff top with its jaw dropping views of Es Vedra and the reception was then held at one of the highest villas on the island, Fatamorgana, with views for almost 50 km to Formentera, and the most lovingly kept grounds and pools. Being a late May wedding the light was also perfect, and I searched through hundreds of beautiful photos to make a small selection here.

Katie rocked a beautiful gown with strong lines by Spanish designer Jesus Peiro and Ana Perez did the most gorgeous hair and make up. Thanks to our amazing team as always that pulled this one together....lucky to work with such talented people!

Pamper and catch up at home

As a busy working Mum of 3, it is always a treat to get my hair and make up done by the professionals and I love the whole process of a photo shoot, as well as chatting, eating cake and hanging out with my mates! Ana Lui @analuiphotography shot these images of Kerry and I at my house, as Ana wanted to submit them to Style Me Pretty Living and we also needed some updated publicity photos for our new website launched earlier this year. Jessie May Young @jessiemay_bohemianbeauty waved her magic hair and make up wand and made both Kerry and I feel fab....could so start every day with a little of this pampering! Thank you super talented ladies xx

White island dreams

Tom and Chloe flew in from Dubai to celebrate their much anticipated Ibiza Wedding and it was a super stylish, elegant affair. They hired out beautiful Villa Alexia as their base for the week, located on the West coast, with its sleek white lines and stunning views. On the wedding day Chloe and her ladies were preened and prepared for the celebrations in this luxe surrounding.

Chloe kept her make up and hair as sleek and stylish as the Adam Shaw couture gown she wore, and the cala lilies with a hint of green finished the look off beautifully. A white Rolls Royce drove Chloe to the Church where they had a traditional wedding service, followed by the reception, hosted at Cotton Beach Club...the stylish, chic white look was clearly one favoured by the couple and this little jewel in Cala Vadella didn't´t disappoint. 

The decor, flowers and cake also stuck to the all white colour scheme, and after guests had feasted on food such as parmigiana, grilled asparagus, chicken with rosemary and honey and many different Spanish style tapas, they hit the bar (serving cava sangria and passion fruit mojito amongst other things) and dance floor where Chloe literally let her hair down and the fiesta continued late into the night.

Slo mo baby

I always feel a little excited when I get a link to watch one of these slo mo party videos, which have become really popular the last few years. I defy you to watch it and you not jig in your seat...even just a little! Thanks to Jake Westwood for putting this fab one together of Darren and Kelly´s gorgeous boutique hotel wedding in June.
