Colorful and Stylish Wedding in Wales

Sabrina-Jay-Nick-Murray-Photography-26

When the first images you see of a bride are her eating ice cream, you know it’s going to be a good wedding. Sabrina and Jay are such a fun, cool couple who had a larger-than-life vision for their day. Fortunately, they brought on master photographer Nick Murray to capture every moment of their colorful and stylish wedding. From a planning perspective, the couple prioritized light over all else–both natural light from the sun around stunning venue Oldwalls Gower and a light spirit in their love and in their guests throughout the day.

The Couple: Sabrina and Jay

The Wedding: Oldwalls Gower, Swansea, Wales

The Moments: “Jay and I wrote our own vows and I loved how personal it made our ceremony. I remember turning abounding and being surrounded by all our friends and family, seeing them all so happy for us.

The Inspiration: “We found the most naturally beautiful venue so we wanted to keep the decoration quite simple and elegant. We chose a colour pallet of ivory, blush and pale peach to blend in with the gorgeous natural surroundings. Our theme was loosely based on travel as our parents all hail from different countries. The tables were named after countries that hold meaning to us and on every table there were interesting facts about the country. 

Music was also very important to us and for every aspect of the day we chose songs that hold meaning to us. My bridal entrance was to Michael Jackson’s ‘I Just Can’t Stop Loving You’, played on a baby grand piano. Our first date was to a Michael Jackson musical. Our guests really appreciated how much effort was put into the music and sang and danced throughout the wedding breakfast, even before the dance floor was open!

For our wedding day fashion we both wanted a modern look. My dress was the second dress I tried on, it just felt right. It was form fitting and had a touch of sexiness. Jay had his suit made bespoke in a renowned tailor in Dubai, as a special touch he had our initials and wedding date embroidered inside. It made it that extra bit more special.

Lavish Orchid Wedding in Georgia

Parker and Zach wanted an elegant Southern affair, and their lavish orchid wedding absolutely fits the bill. Held at Ocean Forest Golf Club, the wedding balanced Southern charm with rich details like Parker’s Amsale gown and her stunning fuchsia orchid bouquet. By keeping the wedding party attire black and white, Parker’s bouquet stood out even more. Photographer Jessica Rawlings beautifully captured the couple and their gorgeous wedding party from start to finish, and we love the sparkler send off at the end of the night.

The Couple: Parker and Zach

The Wedding: Ocean Forest Golf Club, Sea Island, GA

The Inspiration: “In terms of wedding day fashion I was aiming for comfortable sophistication inspired by the wedding locale. Sea Island is a place I have known and loved my entire life and it epitomizes easy southern elegance in my mind. I wanted to embody that throughout the weekend including my attire.

The Couple Recommends: “Jessica Rawlings was absolutely spectacular. Our biggest priorities for a photographer for to (A) capture amazing photos and (B) blend into the wedding and have it not feel like we were part of a big production. Jessica took unbelievable photos and blended seamlessly in with the crowd – she was amazing!

The Moments: “Marrying each other. Outside of that probably our fake exit. We went through a full sparkler line exit, got in an amazing 1930’s convertible and drove off into the sunset with fireworks lining our path. Much to our guests surprise we had no intention of actually leaving our close friends and family and missing the celebrations. We cruised around for 15 minutes while sipping champagne then returned to the event and surprised our guests as we joined them for the after party for two more hours. It was SO much fun to be there for the end of the night and see the looks on everyone’s faces. The only other part that gets close to competing is the private dinner we had immediately upon arriving at the reception. It was our first moment as husband and wife and our first chance to be alone for 24 hours and actually enjoy and savor everything that was happening. It was all awesome!
