Wedding Ideas Awards 2014

14_7927831_orig

On the second Friday of January we swooshed off to the Wedding Ideas Awards for a night of glamour, dancing, and mingling with the best of the wedding industry. What a night. Champagne, a slow motion booth, ice sculpture giraffe luge, damn good DJs, and the hottest award winners and nominees in attendance. Hope you enjoy these fantastic photos from Thomas J Barnes Photography, www.thomasjbarnes.com.

The awards were held at the Tower hotel in London, a stunning location with a beautiful view of the river. The wedding ideas team were the most welcoming, gorgeous, glamorous hosts you could ask for and all the wedding industry scrubbed up impeccably well. Some unbelievable dresses being shown off.

The whole evening was so enjoyable. It’s not often you can have such a fun time with people you’ve just met; but everyone was so friendly and the fantastic music, food and entertainment definitely brought everyone together. Dancing along to cheesy tunes is a sure way to bond, right?

When we arrived we were greeted with champagne with ACTUAL gold in it! Served by the fittest waiters who had thankfully forgotten their shirts. The awards were presented by the amiable Francine Lewis who lead the way with laughter at her fantastic impressions. The awards then followed and congratulations to all the fabulous winners! Best stationer went to Sarah Wants and the special recognition award was also to a stationer! The talented Lucy Ledger, just showing how important those invitations are for your wedding.

Decadent, extravagant, vintage style weddings have been catching my eye and with the discovery of pinterest I have captured all this wonder onto a board. Chic headpieces, lace details and classic decorations all capture this old-timely vintage feel. While the boundless amounts of materials involved; beads, glass, sequins of stunning embellishment really keep it fresh and new. Everything glitters. I especially liked the idea of using vintage broaches instead of flowers for a bouquet; such a unique touch and much longer lasting that a standard bouquet; just be careful if you throw it, yikes! 1_1747466_orig

These musings have also and for the first time EVER had me dreaming about my perfect wedding dress; a beaded, twenties, vintage style creation…This is extremely dangerous, Gatsby inspired champagne fountains and wedding dresses are definitely not on my agenda. More likely a theme party with some classic Aldi cava; bubbles are bubbles right?
