Two globetrotting grooms, one chic intimate wedding in Cheshire

Sion and Ben are globetrotters who planned to leave the country right after the wedding for infinite adventures. Is it the dream? Hell yes it is! But before they were off, we got to experience their wedding with these fab photos of their UK wedding in Cheshire.

After all the sweetness of the ceremony and the speeches, it was time to dance. The jackets were off and the tunes were on. You'll love this ultra chic wedding in Cheshire of two globetrotters.

I didn't bother to hire offbeat vendors and now I regret it

As time as gone by, my priorities have changed (I loved the post on how it's totally fine to have a cookie cutter wedding) and I am having a fairly traditional wedding in about two months. For this reason (and also budget limitations), I ignored the wise advise on this site to seek out vendors whose wedding style fits my vision. But what I am finding as I get deeper into planning the wedding, is that I weirdly am worried about living up to my photographers (and others) expectations and I worry about not being a "hot" enough bride with a "pretty" enough wedding. How do I keep the wedding day focused on what my fiance and I want, even though some of the people around us have different expectations?

Elisa and Nathan celebrated their meaningful wedding in Italy with readings by witnesses, sharing promises, exchanging rings, and a wine ceremony.

Globes, library cards, & Hogwarts houses: 12 unconventional wedding guestbooks

If you're into the concept of capturing a snapshot of those who attended your wedding, a wedding guestbook is ideal. But you don't have to settle for one of those padded, white, crystal-covered books with a feather pen. You can literally have your guests sign anything you want! We're talking Harry Potter houses, book-lovers' library cards, a chic globe (that I'd want in my house anyway!), clear acrylic puzzle pieces, and Instax snaps in a cute AF book. The world is your guestbook oyster. Here are some recent I wanted to share…
