When this lovely Port Cunnington Lodge wedding landed in my inbox, I was immediately struck by its special charm. Even without reading anything about the wedding, I could just tell from the images that a lot of love and thought was put into making this vision come to life. And I love featuring love like this!
Photographed by Kate Hood Photography, Kim and Graham’s quaint lakeside lodge wedding, complete with special handmade details and held on a perfect early summer day, was nothing less than brilliant. I love the laughter that erupts when Kim’s veil flies up into the air and as you will read in Kim’s account of the wedding below, it’s beautiful that she, her mother and her future mother-in-law all worked together to make 125 napkins for the wedding. Now that’s love!
From the bride:
What friends and family commented on most were the details. The process of planning this celebration really opened up a world of creativity for me that I hadn’t tapped into for awhile and I was able to blend my love of design into what I hoped would be a very personal experience for everyone involved. The hours spent preparing was a complete labour of love and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Another fun project was the table settings that included 125 cloth napkins, sewn by my self, my mom and my mother-in-law. The mix and matched blue and white patterns were fresh and looked crisp placed with fresh pears that held each name done in calligraphy and attached with a pearl headed pin (the birth stone for both Graham and I, June babies).
The details that I cherished the most were the ones no one would have even noticed. These included the faith, hope and charity charm that my mom pinned inside my dress (a necklace she wore every day when I was a child), my great grandmother’s bible that was used during the service and lace cut from my mother’s wedding gown that I had wrapped around my bouquet.
