A timeless rustic wedding amidst the rain and snow
Charlie / 3 September 2011
This might just be one of my favourite weddings ever. I love the simplicity of it: the beautiful scenery, pretty dress, and everyone dressed in their rain coats huddling beneath umbrellas does all the speaking. There’s no need for overly fussy details.
That being said, there are a few fun details, like the handmade flags and these gorgeous giant paper flowers.
This is a very timeless wedding, which is something I’ve been thinking about a lot when looking at some of the overly themed or stylised weddings you see. I very much believe that everyone should do what they want at their wedding, but I wonder how we will all look back on our wedding photos when we are in our 80’s.
So many people like to include framed photos of their parents and grandparents on their wedding day, and all those photos seem so timeless, so very much of the era. But will ours look like that? There are so many fads, and trends, and themes, will we look back and think “Oh gosh, what were we thinking?”
A wedding like this, I don’t think they will. For me it is timeless, simple, of the time and place, letting the emotions and meaning of the day come through. What do you think?
