RMW Real Bride {Vicky & Oli: The Dress}

Hey lovelies, hope you’re all having an indulgent bank holiday weekend. This weekend on RMW I will be talking all about the dress…including my rather interesting process of finding ‘the one’, as well as giving some advice for those who are yet to embark on the dress shopping trips!

I would say my wedding planning has been going really well, and I have been lucky enough to book nearly all the suppliers I was hoping for. However, when it came to finding my dress, this was far from easy. After covering what felt like every dress shop in Manchester & Norfolk over the past year, only in March (just 4 months before the wedding!) did I decide on ‘the one.’

Maison Des Rêves {Lihi Hod Bridal}

There’s nothing I love more than a beautifully shot bridal campaign, so when I spotted these images from Lihi Hood in the feed of top photographer, Thierry Joubert, I just knew I had to share. Thierry has such an evocative style and I love how he uses dark and light. We’ve featured some stunning weddings from him over the years (like Larrisa & Oliver and Nina & Eric).

Lihi Hod is an Israeli designer who trained in Paris at Dior, alongside fashion designer John Galliano. Her fashion kudos is undeniable and even with just a glance at her stunning gowns you can see that.

As you’d expect from the people involved, this shoot is fashion editorial worthy and it makes me very excited for the direction Bridalwear is going in. It’s no longer just enough to shoot your dresses against a grey screen with a bride holding a bouquet. We live in a world where every image needs to tell a story, and these most definitely do that…

Lizzy & Rob

If you fancy taking in some of our city’s iconic landmarks this afternoon then this is the wedding for you. Lizzy and Rob started their London wedding journey with an adorable ceremony at the Houses of Parliament, before heading down the Thames on a boat to their fabulous reception at Trinity Buoy Wharf.

The beauty of Trinity Buoy Wharf is each couple who celebrate there get to transform it into their own unique space. Lizzy and Rob’s vision is simply spectacular with DIY bunting, a homemade naked wedding cake and a truly fabulous wooden crate and plant pot table plan which I think you are going to go Pin-crazy for.

The wonderful Sara Dalrymple Photography not only captures the love between this gorgeous couple, but also London, and all the classic and urban cool in-between.

Julia & Alex

When the bride is a fashion buyer, turned bridal boutique owner you just know the dress is going to be epic, and it is my lovelies, it so is. A gorgeous fishtail Ian Stuart gown with stunning appliqué detail and a detachable tulle skirt and matching veil, honestly folks it is just heavenly, and the way Emma Lawson Photography has captured the light shining through it shows it off to perfection.

Making this wedding even more dreamy is the fact it was held in a castle, the breathtaking Drumtochty Castle in Scotland to be exact. Think gorgeous glens and a chic woodland theme, with tall centrepieces in the grand reception and the most fabulous of bouquets and buttonholes. Now, are you ready to fall in love with this autumnal wedding as much as I have?

Amanda & Ben

Godwick Hall is one of my favourite wedding venues because not only does it offer dramatic backgrounds for couple portraits, but the Great Barn is the ultimate exposed-brick-festoon-lit dream for creative couples. If you like your weddings rustic, but oh so stylish then this is the wedding for you. Amanda and Ben’s big day is full of gorgeous seasonal blooms, vintage china tea cups and adorable polaroid place settings for guests, as well as lots of love and laughter.

The lovely images come from Leanne Jade Photography, whose RMW debut this is. We’re really hoping that she sends lots more weddings our way as we’ve fallen for her natural style hook, line and sinker. And I’m pretty certain you will too…

Beautiful and unique wedding favours your guests will actually love including edible and drinkable gifts and fun and eco-friendly favours such as seeds_0004 Pin Image

Favours For The Win

It’s been a while since I last shared an inspirational post with you all so what better then than to focus on the theme of favours. Granted it’s a contentious issue because let’s be honest it continues to split folks into two camps…those that love a favour and those that don’t really see the point of them. I know that I’m not exactly your typical guest in that I can remember the wedding favour of every single wedding I’ve attended. I’m a sucker for sentimentality but so many of my friends have openly admitted to me that they’d rather the bride and groom save their pennies or popped it behind the bar instead.

Mireia & Artur

I’m not going to lie I found it incredibly hard not to include every single image captured by Sara Lobla of this gorgeous pair. I am completely and utterly mesmerised by their love, beauty and sense of style, not to mention all the fabulous details this Spanish wedding has to offer. It has most definitely made my heart swell and my eyes bulge. Even more heartwarming to learn is this adorable couple met when they were just 12! What a bond.

Both of them look incredible, with Bride Mireia resembling a boho princess in her flower crown and Verónica Miranda bridal separates. And the Lindos Huéspedes Spanish venue styled by La Puta Suegra is the perfect reflection of the couples natural, laid back lifestyle and effortless elegance.
