Laura & Andy

Fit. Seriously – So. Much. Fit. I don’t think I’ve seen a bride and groom with such amazing teeth and thus beautiful beams in every single image, they should model for Colgate*

Apart from the general mega watt smilies and pretty details what is also super special about Laura and Andy’s wedding is that they stuck to a strict budget, making clever choices and incorporating various DIY projects and help from family and friends and truly created the day of their dreams.

I especially love the “brownie baking” competition – what a fun way to incorporate your nearest and dearest into W-day AND provide a selection of delicious (and free!) desserts.

*other toothpaste brands are also available.

Monica & Ian

The first thing you notice about this contemporary city wedding is the POP of colour, namely red!

Monica wears the most fabulous red lipstick and nail polish and they match her shoes and underskirt perfectly. She also carries a cleverly crafted fabric flower bouquet with hints of red, which is simply adorable and such a lovely keepsake. Her Bridesmaids are just as eye popping and colourful in cobalt blue dresses and compliment her vintage look perfectly.

The reception at The Roost in Hackney doesn’t disappoint either with its quirky decor and personal touches. I love the Eiffel Tower bunting and origami flowers and was that a honeycomb pineapple I spotted….?

A beautiful hand made heart felt DIY wedding filled with family and friends and gin for all!

RMW Rates – Alice Made This

I am completely in love with the exquisite craftmanship of the cufflinks and lapel pins from Alice Made This. With a stunning design they use British Industrial methods to create clean and honest accessories.

These are the most perfect accessories for you groom or groomsmen to complete their outfits. They would also make the perfect gift for you to give to your other half on the big day. I’m pretty sure he would love them.

Think beautiful summer meadows with pastel pretty wild flowers and you can envision the whimsical wonderland Kerry & Ben decided on for their summer wedding at Barton Hall.

But what I bet you won’t of guessed is all the creativity, dedication and crafty family & friends who helped to make their dream come true. Between them they handmade bespoke mis-match Bridesmaid dresses, table plans, signs and so much more, in fact if it wasn’t made with love, they didn’t want it and the cutest thing of all is the sign made by their adorable Daughter to carry down the aisle before Mummy entered.

If you love a wedding with an intimate vibe and budget friendly personal touches you’re going to love this… Enjoy!

Decorating Cakes With Edible Petals

You may recognise the gorgeous cakes in this post from our Instagram feed…When the lovely Bee from Bee’s Bakery joined our Love Lust List, we shared an image of one of her cakes, and it was one of our most liked photos ever. Yes – EVER!!

And we can totally see why – Bee’s cakes not only look really pretty and oh so delicate, but they also look deliciously mouth watering too. Given that it was so popular, and lots of Brides are making their own wedding cakes these days, we asked Bee for her top tips for decorating with edible petals – just in case any of you fancy giving it a go, or if you’d like to ask your cake baker to recreate the look.
