Summer & Robin: The Perfect Blank Canvas.

summer real bride header 2 Summer & Robin: The Perfect Blank Canvas. Today I’m going to be telling you a little bit about our venue.

Court Farm is a 16th Century farmhouse set in ten acres of grounds. A lovingly restored farm house just outside of Bath, it’s an absolutely beautiful, contemporary (yet rustic), comfortable home and business. I feel deadly excited to spend my wedding weekend there. The extended farm house has enough space for both of our families to be able to spend a joyous long weekend together. My family don’t really ‘do’ quiet and reflective, we’re a pretty rowdy bunch, but I’m looking forward to some personal (hungover) moments together the day after.

On the day of our wedding the outdoor space will be the main attraction. A marquee is going to be attached to the back of the barn to extend out to a dining area, leaving the main barn space free for dancing and a bar. This is were all my hard crafty work comes in. In my head it’s decked out in all the Pinterest ideas ever (and looks good) but what is it that Coco Chanel said…”simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance”. I will need to channel some Chanel where decorating is concerned or I might get a bit carried away. Or not, haha.

Win £500 Towards Your Honeymoon With Patchwork Present.

patchworkfinal Win £500 Towards Your Honeymoon With Patchwork Present.

Hooray! It’s competition time! Fancy the chance of winning £500 towards your dream honeymoon? Thought so!!

At RMW we find that more and more of you lovely lot veer away from the traditional department store wedding lists and instead ask friends and family for donations to your honeymoon.

I mean let’s be honest, most of us live with our significant other halves for a while before getting married, so what’s going to be more useful to you – a set of cheese knives? Another toaster? Or a cash donation to your honeymoon???

Asking for cash can seem a little dry though…which is where gift list alternative Patchwork Present comes in! We introduced them to you a little while ago – you can read all about what they do here.

Patchwork Present offer an alternative gift list that lets you show your wedding guests your dream honeymoon as a ‘patchwork’ of individual experiences so they can choose which part of your trip they want to treat you to – £100 for a night in a hotel, £50 for an elephant ride or even £5 for two beers on the beach. Independent of any travel agents, contributions from your friends go direct to your PayPal account for you to spend when and where you like. A brilliant way to invite guests to fund your honeymoon without the embarrassment of asking for cash!

This month they’re offering Rock My Wedding readers the chance to win £500 cash when you use their site to fund your honeymoon. Patchwork Present 1 Win £500 Towards Your Honeymoon With Patchwork Present.

Disco Cages And Peach Flavoured Delights In Wiltshire.

Nina Daniel Disco Cages And Peach Flavoured Delights In Wiltshire.

For once I’m lost for words with the opening to this morning’s wedding – that of Nina and Daniel who said ‘I do’ by the riverside in Wiltshire.

Why might you ask? Well it’s because this big day is flipping AWESOME, that’s why. There are so many gorgeously creative details that it’s hard to know where to begin. But begin I must, so I’ll start with Nina’s oh so chic and simple bridal gown from Jenny Packham. If there’s one thing I have a bit of a soft spot for lovelies then it’s those brides who choose and are able to carry off the merest slip of a gown for their wedding day and Nina does this with aplomb!

And then there’s ALL the decorative details; I don’t want to give away too much at this point but I will say that there are mirror balls and peach coloured lampshades and disco cages and stars and giant letters and an ACTUAL LOVE TENT.

Yes an actual Love Tent. Cor blimey, it’s enough to make this wedding blog editor hyperventilate!

So whilst I take myself off in an attempt to calm down from the sheer epicness of this big day I urge you to read on dear readers and experience the joy for yourselves.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you…

An Adult Santa’s Grotto And Woodland Wedding.

Cover Image3 An Adult Santa’s Grotto And Woodland Wedding.

Oh my! I have a sneaking suspicion that you are going to fall in love with this afternoon’s wedding – that of Jacqueline and Joe who married on Lusty Beg Island amidst the backdrop of New Year’s revelries.

For a start Jacqueline is BEAUTIFUL with delicious bridal accessories to match – I mean you just can’t help but gawp at her super sparkly Gucci shoes in awe. But that’s not all!

I adore pretty much EVERYTHING in this wonderful ‘I do’ from the illustrated stationery to the super chic bridesmaid dresses from BHLDN all the way through to the epic portrait shots by the Guinness sign and the dapper men in tweed. And you need to check out the ceiling accessories adorning the pair’s wedding reception – now that’s how to drape paper chains in style.

Take it away you gorgeous pair!

Bright Lights, Big Love, Big City.

Cover Image7 Bright Lights, Big Love, Big City.

When Emma and Tim started to plan their wedding they knew that they wanted to provide a great feast for their guests. Originally thinking about a traditional country wedding their heads were turned by South Place, a contemporary London venue with a great reputation for food. Emma bought a little taste of the country to this inner city soirée with her choice of natural and delicate flowers, a vision realised with help from Willow florist.

When South Place earned a Michelin Star in the run up to their big day, Emma and Tim knew everything had fallen nicely into place!

Magical Light On The Jurassic Coast.

juliaandgrant Magical Light On The Jurassic Coast.

There is something very ‘other worldly’ about Julia and Grant’s engagement shoot. It’s like they’ve disappeared to another planet – honestly, it sounds crazy, but when you look at the images, you’ll see exactly what I mean!

The light and colour captured in the images is incredible – soft golds, bright yellows and azure blues.

The scenery is also magnificent, I mean how can you beat a coast line that records 185 million years of the Earth’s history?! It’s truly spectacular.

I’m also really hoping that we get to see the wedding photos so we can see how Julia styles her cute bob…and judging by her outfit for the shoot – I’m pretty sure she’ll be wearing something delicious for her wedding day too.

The whole shoot really is dreamy, so I’ll stop waffling and let the pictures from James Green do the talking.

Love And Brights In Liverpool

Cover Image6 Love And Brights In Liverpool

Well then, isn’t this a sophisticated and modern wedding and a half. Amy and Andy make the perfect city chic couple, all sleek silhouettes and colour pop brights. The concert room at St Georges Hall which held the ceremony is absolutely breathtaking, so grand and opulent.

The flowers! must mention – absolutely AMAZE, I want them in my house. Now please if at all possible. You’ve also got to love a bride who takes inspiration from our very own DIY projects, this big day is elegant in its simplicity but that’s not to say you can’t involve a little craft to make things personal and unique.

Did I mention the bouquet?

Destination Lisbon.

Cover Image quote2 Destination Lisbon.
I’m going to be totally honest here, I’ve always thought of Portugal as being a bit… Dull. The straight laced older sibling of crazy young tear-away Spain… With it’s Algarve – favoured destination of the moderately affluent over tanned middle aged sun-seeker. I found out how wrong I was last month when I had the opportunity to stay for a few days at Four Seasons, Lisbon.

As it turned out Lisbon is one of the coolest and most vibrant cities I’ve visited in a long time and is the perfect curve ball choice for a wedding abroad, honeymoon or even high class hen or stag do holiday.
