Friday I'm In Love

Just in case you hadn't noticed yet, at The Big Day we're all about the love!  Recently I decided to spend some time finding 'the love' and choosing some beautiful content to share with you as part of our Friday I'm In Love features.  Well needless to say I got distracted, and a few hours later after getting very sidetracked at Moment Junkie and some side visits to some amazing photographer's websites, I just couldn't resist showing you this fun caterpillar on the dance floor from Nicole Lapierre Photography.  This image made me smile for two reasons, one because it's my husband's speciality at ANYONE's wedding and I have very fond memories of our good friend Dan doing his version at our wedding, but also because I was secretly pleased that it wasn't just my crazy hubby out there who pulls out the caterpillar at a wedding!

Happy Friday! x

Something Borrowed...

It's a classic look to wear white or ivory bridal shoes to match that fabulous dress of yours, but if you are a little daring and like to surprise people then why not add an unexpected splash of colour to peek out from the bottom of your dress?

The list of colours you could wear are endless, by why not tick off the box for Something Borrowed, Something Blue?

Aimee + Andy • beautiful Whangarei wedding by Isabella Harrex

Well here it is, our first 'The Love' real wedding!  What a privilege it is to have such a beautiful wedding shoot provided by a very lovely photographer (who also loves duck-egg blue by the way!) as our first real wedding.  A friend told us about Dunedin-based Isabella Harrex and as soon as we opened the first image Isabella sent through to us, we were hooked and knew this classically beautiful bride and handsome groom would be perfect for our first 'The Love'.  What we didn't know was how hard it would be for us to select just a few images of their gorgeous wedding to show you!  Isabella shot this wedding in Whangarei at Aimee's parents home, and it was the perfect backdrop for this very pretty wedding.  What makes our hearts sing when we look at these images is how much fun Aimee + Andy are having, their smiles are infectious and we found ourselves smiling too.  We absolutely love how Isabella's images have captured the little details that made this wedding so special and don't you just love those pretty pink and yellow macarons?   

We hope you enjoy our first 'The Love' and these beautiful images, and thank you to Aimee + Andy for sharing their big day with us and telling us a little bit about it...

Lilac, Lavender and Lace

One thing I love about trends is how they almost always come back in one form or another, and purple is no exception - except now it's 'on trend' to talk shades of lilac and violet or lavender and plum.  Purple has been one of those staple colours that regularly made an appearance in an 80's school formal photo, as fluoro is a 90's music video and on bridesmaids in the 2000's and now it's back and hotter than ever!  I absolutely adore how these modern subtle hints of lilac and lavender effortlessly make their way into the wedding theme, teamed so beautifully with snow white and grey, and I can't get enough of these bright statement wedding shoes (if you check out the link they come in a range of colours).  Oh and by the way, how absolutely beautiful is the lace detailing on this Claire Pettibone dress...

Our Favourite Image

When designing our temporary home page while The Big Day was being created (thanks to our wonderful web developer Andrew Lee!) we came across this image and knew it would be perfect for what we wanted The Big Day to represent - beautiful wedding design and imagery.  Thankfully the lovely Liz Jahn at Liddabits Design Shop and Kelsey Lauren Photography agreed we could use their gorgeous image, and we loved it so much it's also here on our Facebook page.  We hope you love it as much as we do, and hope you get excited for the things to come on The Big Day!
