On Top of the City
This heartwarming wedding at Duddell’s was one that caught our eyes instantly. We love the idea of rooftop weddings in the city! Eilidh and Willfilled filled Duddell’s with palms and greenery, transforming the place into a lush-looking venue that looked as though they all were able to escap the city entirely! The very organic look and feel of the theme really turned their special day into a warm, inviting event tucked in the skies, away the bustling metropolis below.

Saying “I Do” at PMQ
A wedding at PMQ? It’s never crossed our minds before, neither did we ever imagine that this place could turn into a gorgeous wedding venue! But thanks to Jenny and Jonathan, we’ve witnessed an astonishing venue transformation! They decorated PMQ with minimalist white details and added some greens which kept the venue looking immaculate and elegant. This wedding is truly unique, hence, one of 2018’s best.

Sweet Garden Romance
There are weddings that leave us speechless–when the photos unfold, we’re left with no words. Jessie and Samuel’s wedding in Italy was of that kind. They chose the elegant Villa Cora as their venue. Aside from its grand interiors of gold details and 19th century inspired architecture, Villa Cora is surrounded by the most beautiful garden ever. Hence, the moment the event started to unfold in front of use, we were all just filled with awe at this undeniably captivating union.

Spellbinding in Burgundy
What really made Claudia and Marvin’s wedding extra enticing was the rich burgundy color theme that brought life to the entire celebration. From Claudia’s bouquet, to her bridesmaids’ dresses, and the geode reception table decorations–the boldness of the color really made all the difference. Styled to perfection with the color in all the right places, this celebration really had that special touch that was both irresistible and addicting–we didn’t want the photos to end!

How can one not fall head over heels for this gorgeous wedding? When Tina and Tao began their journey as husband and wife, they had a beautiful floral arch over them, a view that overlooks the sea, and a colorful sunset as their backdrop. We were instantly drawn to the utterly romantic view and luxurious flowers everywhere! The pastel color theme only made everything look even more stately and the bride’s ensemble was just as enchanting.

In All Its Majesty
Every little girl dreams of marrying a prince and becoming a princess. And if people today say this only happens in fairy tales, this surely didn’t stop Peiwen and Thanh from making the dream a reality. Their castle wedding in France was just as magical and majestic as in any child’s dreams! Now every other girl out there knows that just because you grow up, it doesn’t mean you can’t live your dreams, no matter how outlandish it may seem, even when it comes to your wedding.

Picturesque from all angles and surrounded by the serene waters of Lake del Garda, Loraine and Nick’s wedding day was a touching celebration that filled our hearts to the brim. While we adore everything about their lakeside venue, we also loved all the intimate moments from their celebration. They kept styling at a minimum–with an all-white color theme–so that every one could better appreciate the beautiful location and peaceful surroundings. And it worked, because we surely did.
