Jane Chung and her fiancé Chris eloped on August 24 in Joshua Tree National Park in a Desert Pop Up wedding that started with Chung getting ready at a nearby Airbnb before golden hours vows in the park, with their dog Juniper bearing witness to the celebration.

A pandemic-era wedding was not what she envisioned, but for Chung, eloping in the desert was as memorable as the Van Nuys couple could have hoped for.

“It was just me, him and our puppy,” she said. “It just made it super intimate and super loving. I felt like we were in

Gemma Atkinson admits she’d love a quick budget wedding to Gorka Marquez

Gemma Atkinson has admitted she’d love to have a quick budget wedding to her boyfriend Gorka Marquez as she opens up on the possibility of marrying him.

The 35-year-old actress has dished the dirt on how and when she’d like to wed Strictly Come Dancing pro Gorka.

Appearing on Monday’s Steph’s Packed Lunch, Gemma was put on the spot when quizzed over how she’d feel if Gorka rocked up to the studio and demanded they got married right then and there.

Gemma admitted: “I don’t know if I could be bothered with everything. I’d say no, not yet.

She continued: “I’m assuming part of the nice bit of the wedding is the build-up whereby you both plan it together – I know it will be stressful.”

Posted on by iwano@_84

In early 2020, photographer Jessica Thomas wanted to create a geeky wedding shoot but with an elegant twist. So with the help of Glamour & Grind Events, she decided to do a Harry Potter-themed wedding shoot that still captured the essence of a beautiful traditional wedding. The shoot’s theme focused on the Slytherin Hogwarts house from the popular franchise, so the color scheme was hunter green with muted gray and a dash of silver.

The shoot took place in Lakeland, FL, and with a lot of effort and collaboration from many vendors, it was an absolute success. “No longer shall geek weddings be associated with kitschy themes,” Jessica said. “All of these details together created a beautifully elegant and romantic shoot that had the perfect subtle hint of ‘geek wedding’.” The team truly dreamed up a wedding worthy of the Malfoys!

The bride wore a lovely dress with lace detailing,

The presenter and comedian, 41 – who once performed Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious at a musical comedy night dressed as Mary Poppins, as you do – has recorded an audio tour highlighting the best of Leicester Square, which celebrates the history of cinema.

Ah, cinemas – remember those?

It’s called Scenes In The Square and celebrates the history of cinema with nine iconic statues – Batman, Wonder Woman, Mr Bean, Gene Kelly, Paddington, Mary Poppins, Laurel & Hardy, Harry Potter and Bugs Bunny.

It’s brilliant, really special.

Carrie Grace McQuaid and John Michael Simpson exchanged vows on Sunday afternoon missing some of the trappings of a traditional wedding.

The bride didn’t get a dance with her dad, nor the groom with his mother. There was no dinner banquet for 250 guests. Some loved ones had to watch via Zoom.

The whole affair took place in a parking lot.

And yet, it was the perfect start for a couple’s matrimonial adventure: proof that, even in a pandemic, love finds a way.

“Super cute. Very Carrie,” guest Judy Strickland said at the end of the ceremony, which she and most of the others in attendance watched through their windshields. “If anybody could do this, Carrie is the one who could make it happen.”

Marrying in a parking lot was not Carrie’s original plan. But it hasn’t been a good year for plans.
