William & Mary

There are many parts of a couples wedding that I get to experience and whilst my images can a story, one thing they cannot do is share with you the incredible smells that waft through a day… from the florals to the food.

It will be the smell of lavender that will forever take me back to Mary and Williams day. From the lavender and mint in the flower arrangements in church, to the lavender the flower girls handed out to guests as they walked down the aisle. The lavender that was thrown and Mary and William as they left the church right to the amazing lavender candles that were burning throughout the reception. I am so sure that there must be experts out there who can help you create a story through scents for your day and if this is something you would consider, I beg you to do so. Weddings nurture all of our senses and scent is one way for you to be transported back to your day in a heartbeat.

Mary and William were married at the amazing Daylesford Organic Farm deep in the Cotswolds. A stunning location for a wedding, theirs was the first ever wedding Daylesford have done! Their day started beautifully and calmly, not least because they had chosen a later afternoon ceremony which left plenty of time for getting ready and a sense of calm remained through their whole beautiful day.

Mary looked utterly breathtaking wearing her Mum’s wedding dress which I could not believe was over thirty years old. I could not stop looking at it! The detail….the lace….it was so perfect!  They were wed as the sun started to set on a beautiful Autumn day and we were so unbelievably lucky with the amazing light we had.

The evening reception was a  candlelit affair. Incredibly romantic and cosy, with amazing food catered by Daylesford’s talented chefs. Surrounded by beautiful friends and family it was so wonderful to watch the day unfold and see how incredibly loved these two are. Their wedding felt like the coming together of friends over an intimate meal with a whole lot of chat, bucketfuls of laughter and a good old knees up and party to the end!

It was such a pleasure to work with the lovely wedding planner Jessie Thomson who helped Mary and William create the most beautiful wedding. This lady is a diamond and a dab hand at ringing her bell too!

Mary and William, it was such an honour to be a part of your beautiful day, to meet your wonderful families and to be there to capture the story of your marriage. I wish you both every love and happiness in the world. x

A Candlelit Lavender Wedding at Daylesford Organic Farm - Jessie Loves - [...] wonderful day then do take a look at my website and facebook page - and also do have a read of Debs Ivelja’s own take on the day [...]

Linda & Jason

If someone had said to me 10 years ago “Debs one day you will live in, and absolutely love, London” I would have laughed really hard with a resounding ‘no way!’ In fact, Caroline and I had the conversation many times over. A small town girl at heart I have always lived in the country or by the sea. But that did change and within the last 10 years I found myself living in, and loving London. I loved the craziness of the city, one that is it always on the go but at certain times of night and in certain parts of town, it is very much a sleepy country town.

But it was the people I met during my time in town that made it home, two of whom are this gorgeous pair,  Linda and Jason.

I met Linda when she moved into the shared house I lived in, in Wandsworth. A huge bundle of fun our lives soon became entwined and I have had many an enjoyable evening out with her. Jason and Linda’s paths soon crossed and it was clearly a perfect match.

Two graphic designers Linda and J lead an awesome, creative life in London. They set about creating the most personal day in a totally hands on way. From  Linda working with  Tobi Hannah to custom design her dress to her custom designed Shoes of Prey shoes and creating their own flowers, favours, table games and the amazing stationery.  Special touches throughout the day gave a nod to their heritages and shared loves such as Tim Tam favours and a shared love for snowboarding, and a tear jerking moment for all during the ceremony where family from Australia had been able to watch their marriage through a live webcast. Perfection!

They also embraced all London has to offer and created a perfect city wedding. A ceremony at the very amazing (and totally undiscovered) Wandsworth Town Hall, a walk along the river in Putney, a photo stop in a fish and chip shop and an evening reception at a fabulous London pub, The Brook Green Hotel.

Being a part of your wedding was the most incredible experience Linda and J and I cannot wait to share more adventures with you both…. hope the house renno’s are going well you two!

Since getting hitched, Linda has been working with Tobi Hannah on an exciting project, just launched. The Short Wedding Dress book is a collection of all things amazing short wedding dresses! Be sure to check it out here!

Wild Abandonment – A Cornish Elopement Shoot

I love, love, love the idea of eloping… running away, just the two of you to somewhere beautiful. Saying your vows to one another in private, a perfect moment in time that only the two of you are present in.

It was while shooting Nessa and Russ’s beautiful elopement earlier this year that I got to meet Maya and Tom of BoHo Cornwall. A little part of paradise in this part of the world, a place you can run away to to be wed in a part of the country that is utterly divine. Where the barren, rambling Cornish moors meet the wild Atlantic ocean.

It is like running away to get married at the edge of the world….

So incredibly inspired but the talent in Cornwall and our shared love for elopement weddings, the three of us came together recently  to work on an inspirational shoot, showcasing local suppliers and the beauty of BoHo Cornwall and the surrounding areas.

Think Wuthering Heights…. wild abandonment… windy moorlands and winter sunshine. Crazy wind stripped trees and candle lit ceremonies. An intimate and cosy table for two. Hedgerow foraged flowers and feathers making the most beautiful bouquets and jewellery inspired by the land and sea. Simple yet lovely personal touches and a whole heap of romance.

Exactly what it is to elope.

Running away from it all and sharing a perfect moment together.
