I cannot tell you how much I love today’s Safari Engagement Session by London Light Photography. This talented wedding photographer might be one of the most creative professionals we’ve ever had the pleasure of featuring. It all began with an idea Sydney Takeshta had to photograph Zebras – and then she came across this quote “Love makes the wildest spirit tame, and the tamest spirit wild.” And just like that a Safari Engagement Session was born. Enter today’s beautiful couple. Marcus and Kristina happen to be devout animal lovers and were hoping to wed at the Wild Animal Park. Sydney pitched them her idea and they of course thought it was perfect! Together, with Touched By Time Vintage Rental, they were able to put together a romantically wild scene for the happy couple. BTW – if you love this creative session, you must check out this Enchanted Engagement Session by London Light Photography!
Theeeyyy’rrrreeee hitched!! For those of you who haven’t heard that Cary Grant’esq, dreamy philanthropic ladies man is a bachelor no more. Ladies and gents George Clooney is officially off the market. When a Hollywood star weds a human-rights lawyer you better believe said wedding will spare no expense. And by “spare no expense” I mean a wedding that has an estimated price tag of up to 13-million smackeroos! The 36-year old stunning bride and accomplished barrister exchanged vows with her Prince George in Venice, Italy with a star-studded weekend-long wedding. There were luxury hotels, motorboats, world class entertainment, lavish welcome gifts, and couture…OH THE COUTURE! The pair were married by Clooney’s friend Walter Veltroni (and the former mayor of Rome), and surrounded by their nearest and dearest including Cindy Crawford, Rande Gerber, Anna Wintour, Matt Damon, Bono, and funny man Bill Murray (the Afflecks and Jolie-Pitts were a no show!). It’s rumored that Mrs. Amal Alamuddin-Clooney wore an Oscar De La Renta creation for their intimate Saturday ceremony, however no photos have surfaced just yet. Have no fear though because there were many other designers showcased throughout the weekend that we did manage to find and have featured below everything Amal wore on her wedding weekend extravaganza.
Kicking off the weekend in Italian fashion on Friday, she donned a classic black and white Dolce and Gabbana dress.
That evening, the bride and groom parted ways for his and her parties. Amal donned a dramatic red and black Alexander McQueen Resort collection dress with a high-low hemline. It was the perfect gown for the night before her wedding….and can I just say I’m obsessed with her legs?!
Clooney and his boys surprised the owner of this ristorante – they drank vintage wine and ended the night with tequila shots.
While the hotel staff were of course obliged to sign a nondisclosure agreement, however several details did leak of the grand ceremony. Corriere Della Sera reports that the halls of the party were flooded with white roses. And a string jazz ensemble played Nat King Cole’s “When I Fall in Love.” Agence France-Press reported that the guests dined on polenta with wild mushrooms and prosciutto with figs before sitting down to a five-course meal which included lobster risotto. – reported Hollywood Reporter
Festivities reportedly continued through the weekend with, per Us Weekly, a spectacular dinner at the Aman Canal Grande’s 19th-century Granary, which has been decorated with flowers and “stunning crystal chandeliers” on Sunday. Swoon………………………
The day after the wedding, the couple was spotted looking fabulous and very much in love during a Sunday brunch.
The newlywed wore this gorgeous white Giambattista Valli Couture 5 macrame embroidered dress….gush. I absolutely adore the high-low hemline on her.
For their palazzo Ca’ Farsetti civil ceremony Amal chose a white Stella McCartney two piece Bespoke suit with black detail. She accessorized this chic suit perfectly with a cream Beckette clutch and fantastic floppy hat to match. And in case you were wondering how one closes a wedding weekend such as this, here you go. The dashing groom then helped his brilliant bride into their water taxi appropriately named ‘Amore’ and whisked her away down their red carpet canal.
Now we’ll all have to hold our breath and wait for the coveted wedding spread said to be featured in People this month. ET Online has reported that the couple sold the sought after wedding photo rights to the publication and will donate the money to charity. Okay. Now they’re just rubbing in their beautiful perfection.
