Florida Keys Weddings & Weddings Worldwide

What’s better than a featured listing on an international online wedding magazine? Two! Well yeah. Here is the first: European based: Let’s Bee Together

wedding trends


What do we know about weddings and wedding trends? Wedding make up, wedding hair, wedding decor, wedding planning, wedding dj’s, wedding cuisine, wedding venues, wedding culture! Drone wedding video, weddin film and wedding photography.

We love the world of weddings and if Martha Stewart is focused squarely on it with a magazine. Well what does that say to you! Hmm. Since we stopped scuba diving around the world and stood still long enough. Suddenly the world on dry land makes sense. It seems weddings are the life blood of this crazy human existence. And so we are diving in with both fins on!


When you live here, in Florida, you can’t swing a camera without hitting a bride or groom. Best thing is we photograph and film wedding trends as they unfold in front of us. Literally on our doorstep a few – feet from our front door is a wedding venue to the north, south, west, east.

We are passionately enamored by Elopements or Weddings at boutique resorts, large venues or private homes. Drone wedding video soars from secluded beaches. From drones we glimpse a bride as she takes the last meaningful steps to the altar – to her new life – through the tip tops of swaying palms – love is in the air!!!


Wedding traditions always seem to bring us back to us ancient culture. No matter who we are. Each moment someone says I do somewhere on earth – it’s a moment of connecting them to the first ceremonies between two humans into a single bond of matrimony. And joy!

We love the flow of wedding trends and we follow along within the Florida Keys and far outside our own neighborhood. Because the threads of our wedding traditions extend beyond our personal space.


And how can that single ‘I do’ not affect me and my little place on earth? The butterfly effect. Imagine it multiplied thousands of times over daily, worldwide!

Weddings Today is the global idea that we are all connected. More so by our digital visual content sharing. Than ever before. Photography and film from a wedding in Prague is on Instagram accounts all over the world instantaneously.

When a bride in Russia raises her bouquet to heave it over her shoulder that specific combination of floral elements is absolutely snagged by floral creators worldwide – their inspirations is instantaneously shared!

When a bride in Dubai steps out of a limousine stop the press and crush on the dress.

And when an Irish misty veil is raised from the blush of a brides face as she turns to her betrothed on the Emerald Isle – is the make up and hair styled to perfection copied around the globe – of course it is – do we all fall over ourselves to capture the deep woodland theme of the dark ash grey green of the forest decor on the endless table – of course we do. We go giddy for it!

PERFECT MOMENTS NEED TO BE SHARED – it’s the antidote to bad news

Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest – the list goes on, let us all see the moment they share. Whether it’s the kiss, their trending color choices, the mod setting, their local cultural decor, a style we’ve never seen before. We see it almost immediately.

It’s all about social wedding geeking out! And we love the connectivity presented to us. Weddings Today are amazingly esthetically attractive. All because of a bond. A human exchange of eternal rings so many many of us choose to make. For life. Until death. From whenever And wherever we hail.

Our ancient and human matrimonial bond has been intended in the same way – worldwide – since the beginning of time.

Where two families join together with the intention to create a life long bond. There is a whole new universe of wedding food, flowers, tradition, decor, dress and culture just overflowing…and it’s the same worldwide.

Nada – Weddings Today

This woman owned and operated, woman lead small film photo production studio started life in Europe.

We want to bring international and local weddings together alongside each other. Here. At Weddings Today dot Co dot UK.


As freelance journalists and world wide crusty scuba divers we lived tough and rough and kept ungentlemanly hours.

Since getting hitched in 1996 we have grown accustomed to the same latitude and longitude for sunrise to sunset for about 23 years!

Our family (4 kids 2 dogs 1 cat) waterfront life is lived as wildly as possible. We endeavor to stay within the boundaries.

Wild sometimes finds us in this Florida’s Scuba Diving and Destination Wedding capital of the USA. The Florida Keys.

We thrive on our absolute favorite visual content production projects; luxury waterfront real estate, elegant beach elopements, stunning prom portraits and weddings weddings weddings!

Not always tropical coconut and beach themed we do ultra modern fashion forward and trending Florida Keys wedding styles.

Just a sample of some of the local chefs and professional wedding cuisine vendors can really illustrate that!

Pair tropical and modern European fusion cuisine, super glamorous or laid back and local dining. Bali and Asia with Europe and the Middle East – there simply aren’t any limits when it comes to weddings.

One of my personal fave topics for film and photography is a solid dose of dance and good wholesome partying, fueled by energetic and creative mixologists, dj’s, music. We truly do fight for your right to party. As long as we can keep the camera steady! And there are some exotic cocktails and interesting eats to feast our lenses upon!

PUBLISHED!!!! Yes we publish our wedding photography and film. Worldwide. And it gives the impression that, yes many more are beginning to agree, that the work we do influences peoples choices.

And that would be true quite a few times over. Because we LOVE the world we inhabit. And we do share our work widely, frequently.

When we ‘style’ shoots that are featured what goes around, comes around in an online magazine or website. Sharing influences becomes even more relevant and powerful.

Art and science are rooted in the same library of my imagination: we dream what’s possible, then create it. Look at the geniuses alive today making dreams come true. It’s the same imagination and impetus that fuels us to make what we see around us into a trend, a style, a combined culture, all the American, Middle Eastern, African, Asian and European cities we visit.

How can you ignore the threads of saffron, the bohemian prints, the call to prayer, the patterns of henna, the church bells, the silks and linens, the woodland scents and fresh or dried flowers, the fusion of cultures: we love the collision of worlds.

It’s like the colors have run and blended into something new no one could have imagined.

And the collision of all marriage cultures comes here: to be played out at the beach resorts, private estates and homes, where we host elopements and weddings from around the world, daily in the Florida Keys.

City & River Wedding Inspiration

Good Day! We have been traveling around seeking wedding inspired perspectives and angles

Found – January’s Wedding Inspiration starts in Sloane Square.

For a cool but not freezing January in our beautiful English capital city and a riverside Sunday at Walton-On-Thames.

This wedding inspiration, our first in 2020, we took the indomitable Sony Alpha 9 out for a morning meander in Sloane Square and a lunch time languish in the country.

Walton-On-Thames is Wedding Ready

Sincerely – the swans and the decor inspired us to spend some time investigating. This great spot was definitely naturally Wedding Ready!

Insert Wedding Party Here

Deftly blending form and function – this ‘Classic Inn’ gives the feel of tradition paired with modern trends.

There are fabulously appointed rooms and furnishings. Classic mixed with overlook of the fiercely flowing river!

We loved the crosses oars adorning the wall, and the hand painted signage. Calligraphy and its applications today are always so alluring and luxurious. And it’s all over this Riverside Inn. Happily!

Sunday Lunch – ‘The Angler’s, Walton-On-Thames‘ absolutely iconic and famous for its food, river side tables, views and bar offerings.

In this case he had a plan and had executed it. The photographers weren’t available, or were too steep in pricing, or were simply not answering phones. He called me, and in a matter of a few hours, we met and it worked out perfectly.

Living across the street or minutes away from hundreds of miles of coastline covered in resort boutique and franchised hotels has it’s benefits.

And running a Down syndrome charity for 9 years taught this photographer there are a lot of resources on these islands, way more than you’d expect. And when you’ve got the local knowledge last minute is actually really easy. Especially in these amazing Florida Keys.

We have a very simple road system: one road US1, it goes north and south, for a couple of hundred miles. And on either side are hotels and beaches, with bars and restaurants, shops and ocean or the bay.

Engagement Photography

British born Key Largo based, our photographs and films are featured frequently on wedding magazines world-wide. If you want a visit check out the most recent inspiration on our popular @skybornvisual instagram this one was featured on two magazine websites. We love it! #featuredphotography

So when last minute engagements come through, at the Hampton Inn, in Key Largo we get going fast and we know where to go. Sourcing the ‘stuff’ that makes a last minute rush job look planned is quite skilful but we love to do it.

Here is what it looks like in the end. Simple, beach, sunset. Of course she said YES! All this on a budget too: total $45 champagne, $35 flowers, $295 photographer (with coordination, flowers, glasses and champagne in hand)

Weddings & Color

Rose Gold Is A Super Hero

Like for me it’s Rose Gold and anything that fits in around that. Rose Gold is my hero that can sleigh any situation with panache.

When the film maker photographer who runs this joint ( she is a cool drone piloting, adventure crazy, scuba and free diving chick w snow skiing tendencies ) left for a European trip she discovered some hard in your face, color and culture and decor truths.

Rose Gold is the base color this film maker loves most – but the Pantene 2020 choice is blue – so what now?
White and Gold and Rose Gold themed – then the next week was brightly tropical coloured and beach boho – so what trends are really trends?

We just can’t get off of our passion for rose gold! Even though ‘Pantone’s color of the year’ sets the ‘tone’ for many of those in fashion, design, weddings – how much of the new color will weave it’s way into your life.

Weddings are definitely influenced by culture. So using that ‘blue’ may not be cool. We discovered the color palette from one week to the next is totally different. As you’d expect, we are all unique.

2020 Wedding Color Schemes

Westchester has a wedding color review to die for, here it is below


Wedding Color Choice

Found this amazingly short and concise article by TK Bridal Designs

The story about wedding colors in different cultures below was an inspiration for me, because they got most of this right along side the other stories I’ve found. It seems there is a root which really keeps our cultures grounded in ancient beliefs and translates that into colors for wedding day.

Well TK Bridal Atlanta managed to put it into short paragraphs, with no research references, but, if you read and research, you’ll find they are spot on.

Wedding Color Should Start With Your Personal Taste

TK Bridal Designs, Atlanta


In China, brides pick not one wedding dress, but three. At first she wears a red dress because the Chinese believe red is the color of joy and luck. Later, bride swaps into a white dress and finally she wears a gown according to her own choice of color. 


Americans didn’t always consider white as a traditional wedding dress color. American brides would dress in red to symbolize the sovereignty desired during the time of Colonialism. Besides red, some brides also wore purple, which represented a tribute to bravery during the Civil War as a mark of respect to the war dead.


Moroccans support wedding dresses in bright yellow, because they believe the color scares away the evil eye. If not yellow, in Morocco, wedding dresses come in green. It is to represent greenery and respect to the motherland. In addition, green is supposed to bring good luck according to Moroccan tradition.


Kimono is a traditional dress of Japan. So, to keep their tradition Japanese brides wear a white kimono lined in red. The mixture of these two colors symbolizes happiness and a new beginning. Shifting into additional gowns in gold, silver, gold, red and white is common.


In India, wedding is bounded by many rituals and ceremonies. Bridal outfits are generally made of silk embroidered with golden thread. Depending on the region, the silk is red or white with a red border or a combination of yellow, green and white. Indians believe in making the environment colorful during wedding, which is why they mix multiple colors in wedding gowns.


In Korea, brides wear Wonsam over the traditional wedding dress, the Hanbok. Wonsam is usually lime-green in color. The Wonsam is embroidered with flowers and butterflies. It is banded with red symbolizing paradise, indigo for terrain, and yellow for compassion. The bride’s hands are covered in white, the symbol of esteem.


When the entire world is behind colorful wedding dress, Spanish tradition does not necessarily follow the trend. Spanish brides wear black gowns and lacy mantillas. The black color is to represent the devotion of brides to their partner until death.
