It’s about the old made new – it’s a renewal in Koh Samui *location envy sigh* and all this gorgeousness is straight out the lens of Cherry May Photography and the gorgeous couple are Ashley and Dominic.
We’ll hand over to the born again bride, Ashley and let her share her re-wedding experience:
My dress was a wedding dress from Monsoon, which was an unworn wedding dress on ebay! BARGAIN. I then had it altered to suit my style, changing up the back into a more racer back form and dropping the neckline. I added a broach at the back to pull it in and show my back a bit more. I then added a vintage wedding dress lace around the waist as a sash.
My headpiece I made myself from fake flowers I bought from a lovely florist, local to me.
Of course I did my own hair and makeup.
Dom wore some skinny chinos I bought him and a lovely Nautica shirt I bought him. I thought he looked very handsome and comfortable. I didn’t want it to be too contrived. It all was so lovely and perfect.
And… not only did she make her own flower crown, this resourceful Mrs (well she is a make up Artist – check her out! Primp Powder Pout did her own beautiful face she shared: I used : Benefit ‘they’re real’ mascara and bareminerals mineral veil as well with barryM eyeliner and maybelline eyeshadow. I also used Enrapture Totem styler on my hair

Yo y’all it is handkerchiefs at the ready for the first Beyond Beyond wedding of the year *muffled sob*
So, who are the lovely couple – who are the gorgeous nuptial devils cummin atcha via the screen? Well the drool-some twosome and the drool worthy day is that of Linnea and Bryce. And, of course as ever being shutter candy fiends we are suitably transfixed by the beautiful images lensed by Seattle Based Photographer, Sahara Coleman.
This summer I had the privilege to photograph a truly beautiful wedding in my own home town on Whidbey Island. I have to admit, this was one of those weddings that I found myself getting nervous and sick over.
The weather had been terrible in the week leading up to that day, the bride’s hair person hadn’t shown up yet, and the groom was watching the soccer game up until five minutes before it was time for us to start portraits. I thought for sure I had a challenging day ahead of me…I’ve never been so pleased to be so wrong in my life.
The thing about these two amazing people is that they are the most laid back, and genuine human beings I have ever had the pleasure meeting. As long as they were together, it didn’t matter what happened that day, or how anything worked out (this quickly became evident to me when Linnea allowed Bryce to ROW her to the ceremony in a small wooden boat a quarter mile across the water “if we fall in, then we fall in”). I could only hope to find a love like that some day. The wedding took place on Whidbey Island, WA. It couldn’t have been more perfect.
With those lovely words it’s time for you to be transported to a lovely wedding! Let shutter candy begin!See Some More Post a comment (5)
Wedding time – it’s that moment where only the finest pixels will do and we hope that you like, no scratch that, love these from the wedding of Sarah and Joe, lensed by the magnificent Vancouver wedding photographers, Love Out Loud Studios; and theirs is a love that was all about geographical changes as Joe relocated from the UK to be with the one he loves.
Can we please get a collective ‘Awwwwww’.
Sarah and Joe had a had a DIY inspired back-yard wedding that overflowed with colour and charm. The full glory of this wedding has been artfully ensnared by the guys Love Out Loud Studios: a husband and wife team (we always get happy at couples shooting couples – not in a Natural Born Killers kind of way, that would be wrong we mean the photographic way) ; who blur the lines (but not like Mr. Thicke) between Photojournalism and Fine Art – it’s all about photographs that ooze beauty and feeling.
Time to kick back and relax and dive into a wedding that is shutter candy personified.

If you have a good memory you may just remember this adorable couple that we featured on Beyond Beyond a little way back. Well they are back and this time they are… MARRIED! We made that seem ominous – but really it’s beautiful, it’s time for you lovely people to step into the world Olivia & Lekai.
The lens queen behind this shoot, Maureen du Preez, shared: They had a sweet & meaningful ceremony at their church in Harrow, West London. Their reception was held at St Paul’s in Ealing & the venue was decorated beautifully with wild flowers, tweed & bunting.
The day was also filled with fun, quirky touches. The couple hired a fish & chips van to feed their guests, with a vintage-style ice-cream cart for dessert.
They also had a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony as the groom’s family is from Malaysia. Olivia got a lot of her wedding ideas from Pinterest & is now a self-proclaimed addict! Her family were a bit help in making her dream wedding possible, her mother even arranged her stunning bouquet!
So you want to know more about who else was behind this gorgeous day newlywed and pinterest addict Olivia said:
We used Casablanca Hire to rent a lot of stuff, including tables, chairs, table covers, glasses, jugs, plates etc. Basically anything you need in terms of equipment, they have it. Whenever I thought of something else we needed I would just call them and they’d happily add it to our order
A lot of the decoration we did ourselves, my Mum did all the flowers, including the bouquets. If people plan on doing their own flowers we’d recommend using the Convent Garden flower market, it means an early start, but it is well worth it.
We used Fish and Chip Catering for our fish and chips. They were AMAZING! My Mum wasn’t sure about how good the fish and chips would be if they were catering to so many people, but the fish was fresh and the chips thick and crispy! It’s also a cheaper alternative per head than a classic three course meal-
For dessert we used the Matt Benecci Ice Cream Co. It added asome extra fun to the wedding and there was plenty of delicious ice-cream to go around for everyone. -
We had an amazing band called Our Dad play in the evening, they’re a jazz funk band and everyone enjoyed dancing to their music. It was the perfect music for a warm summer’s night! -
Even though it was a lot of hard work using an empty venue, and literally designing it from scratch and setting up the venue the day before, it was well worth it when we saw the end results. The whole day was perfect and better than we ever dreamed it would be.See Some More Post a comment (4)
