Real Weddings: Super Kitsch in Pink with Added Glitter! (part 2)

kitsch decor

I just love this super kitsch styling and all the  little touches that turned this wedding from awesome to spectacular!

And, oh my goodness, it is so lovely to keep in touch with the couples I do ceremonies for , and it’s so fabulous when you get sent a link to their official photos.  Somehow, it’s especially exciting when there’s a big gap between the wedding and their arrival (Leanne and Martin went off on a big adventure straight after their wedding… lucky them).

Anyway, it was last August that I wrote about their stunning wedding at Gellifawr Woodland Retreat.     You can read about its glittery, super kitsch, pink, family (and big kid) friendly awesomeness right here

Here a just a few of the amazing energy filled images captured by the fantastic Alt Wedding Co




This is everything I have to tell you about love: nothing.

This is everything I’ve learned about marriage: nothing.

Only that the world out there is complicated,

and there are beasts in the night, and delight and pain,

and the only thing that makes it okay, sometimes,

is to reach out a hand in the darkness and find another hand to squeeze,

and not to be alone.

It’s not the kisses, or never just the kisses:

it’s what they mean.

Somebody’s got your back.

Somebody knows your worst self and somehow doesn’t want to rescue you

or send for the army to rescue them.

It’s not two broken halves becoming one.

It’s the light from a distant lighthouse bringing you both safely home

because home is wherever you are both together.

So this is everything I have to tell you about love and marriage: nothing,

like a book without pages or a forest without trees.

Because there are things you cannot know before you experience them.

Because no study can prepare you for the joys or the trials.

Because nobody else’s love, nobody else’s marriage, is like yours,

and it’s a road you can only learn by walking it,

a dance you cannot be taught,

a song that did not exist before you began, together, to sing.

And because in the darkness you will reach out a hand,

not knowing for certain if someone else is even there.

And your hands will meet,

and then neither of you will ever need to be alone again.

And that’s all I know about love.
