Hello lovelies …

So, what have you planned for this weekend? I’m going to start cracking at some DIY projects I have lined up for the next Wedding Day shoot … the second issue is not even out yet , and we’re already geared up for the summer issue … It’s really great working with such an energetic and creative team! That’s enough about me … here are some pretties I found while blog surfing this week 🙂

An Irish wedding with the bride wearing the most magnificent Ian Stuart dress

A wedding in Portugal that is beyond chic

A super bright colourful kite-themed engagement

But most of all, you have to watch this! A proposal with lots of balloons

Just Because …

Yesterday I opened my letter box to find a greeting card from my best friend (we’ve known each other since I was 16 … that’s almost 12 years!!) I don’t have my birthday coming up and Christmas still has a bit to come. He bought the card just because it reminded him of me and wanted to say thank you for still being there, even though we now live in two different countries. It had me laughing and crying at the same time (in the middle of the road, may I add).

A bit later, I find an email in my inbox from Tiffany of The Curiosity Project … it was the address of my secret recipient! (For those of you who haven’t heard about it, this project is “a mass exchange of personally chosen gifts between anonymous participants”). This had me thinking … Isn’t it nice to give something to somebody just because? And not think about receiving anything in return?

Welcome

I am fascinated by weddings, always have been. My parents are always invited to countless weddings because of my father’s job, and I remember that since I was little I couldn’t wait for the morning after to quiz my mother on all the details: “What was the bride wearing? How were the bridesmaid’s dresses? How was the church decorated? How was the cake?” (And here I have to thank my dear mum for always patiently answering all my questions.)
As I got older, and especially in the process of getting married myself, I realised that there’s more to a wedding than the pretty details. There’s the story of two persons who are committing to live the rest of their lives as one and the joining of two families.
At Elegant Impressions we not only strive to create perfect little details, but also to tell the couple’s story through these details. We acknowledge every couple’s individuality and want the biggest celebration of their lives to celebrate their individuality.
Malta and Gozo are two fantastic places to get married in …. Everywhere you turn you see the sun and the sea, the islands are drenched in history and offer some fabulous examples of architecture, and the people are renowned for their warm hospitality and friendly attitude.
Through this blog we not only want to share our work but also what inspires and tickles our fancy, and what is so special about these Mediterranean islands for those out there who are planning a destination wedding in Malta or Gozo.
So with this, the only thing left for me to say is Welcome Aboard 🙂
