Jo & Alex

We do love featuring weddings where the couple have sourced their suppliers from Rock My Wedding, and today’s photographer, Frances Sales, was found by Jo and Alex right here on these very pages 🙂

It’s a gorgeous wedding, filled with pretty decor and flowers, and the images have captured so many wonderful moments – the one of Jo hugging her Dad brought tears to my eyes, and the time the ladies spent getting ready looks like such fun!

Jo looks perfect in Esme by Jenny Packham, a gown we never tire of seeing, the embellishment and fall of the fabric is just divine. Oh and the metallic Jimmy Choo sandals are rather easy on the eye too…

Jenny Packham 2017 Bridal Campaign

Jenny Packham gowns continue to take the Bridal world by storm and the 2017 collection was no exception. This evening we’re sharing the beautiful campaign images with you. When the collection dropped a few months ago, we loved the midwest take on styling the gowns (think cowgirl luxe, hay bales and festoon lights). And so the campaign images are just a delight – there’s a fabulous continuity of the theme – shot on location in the USA, bathed in summer sun and surrounded by the most beautiful horses, it’s Bridal editorial at it’s best.

The images showcase six of the most stylish dresses from the Jenny Packham 2017 collection: the Dixie, Apache, Daisy, Harmonica, Faith and Nashville gowns.

I loved the Dixie when the collection was first released, and I’m still loving it now, that detail on the bodice and collar is just second to none. Although Apache is making me swoon with it’s embellished bell sleeves and I simply adore the golden barley hues of Faith.

Which dress is your favourite? I can’t wait to see these landing in boutiques and then making their way into real weddings…

Olivia & Alex

This has to be one of the loveliest rustic Winter weddings we’ve featured. A bold statement I know but you’ll know exactly what I mean when you see everybody’s beaming smiles.

Although The Happenstance Bar in central London was the perfect modern restaurant to have their relaxed do, my absolute favourite part of this wedding is the portraits taken by Jessica Williams of our gorgeous couple at the ruins of a derelict church (now a gorgeous city garden in St Dunstan in the East). Firstly they look incredible in Justin Alexander and Marks and Spencer, and Olivia’s bridal bouquet is something of dreams, but also how off the chart adorable are they giggling away. You just know they are SO in love and unbelievably happy, you can’t help but smile with them and feel the love radiating from the page.

Can we all just take a moment to swoon over Olivia’s gorgeous mermaid locks too. Not jealous, not jealous at all.

Naomi & Andy

I can’t help but do a little jig whenever I spy a wedding wreath and Naomi and Andy’s gorgeous rose, snapdragon and twiggy affair that adorned the door of their wedding venue at The Hare & Hounds in Bath is no exception.

In fact the jig turned into more of a full scale riotous dance when I spotted that Naomi had chosen to dress her maids in simple ivory tea dresses complete with matching brogues. So unbelievably chic! Much like Naomi’s cable knitted jumper when they ventured out for portrait shots later in the day.

There’s so much to point out and wonder at in this wedding – be it the abbey where the pair got married or Naomi’s delicate floral headpiece or even the contemporary and refined table name pennants that decorated their reception. I’m off to pin…who’s going to join me?

Mary & James

An elegant City of London wedding is just what the doctor ordered for a Thursday afternoon. I’m feeling the need for some refinement as the weekend draws nearer and this intimate but stylish affair at the Town Hall Hotel completely delivers, with elegance and sophistication in spades.

Mary wears a gorgeous Marchesa gown with the prettiest lace detail and which she describes as feeling light and comfortable, which can be hard to come across in a wedding gown. This particular dress looks like it was made for her though, and the way it sits and falls is simply beautiful.

The whole day has been captured by Sarah Gawler whose sensitive photography always captures light, emotion and special moments in a natural and totally unobtrusive way. I love everything about the portrait above – the framing is perfect and for me seems to sum up Mary & James’ day – lovely London, a truly happy couple and that feeling of intimacy only provided by a small wedding.

And I must mention the gorgeous cake created by one of our recommended suppliers, Little Bear Cakery.

Katie & Mike

You’d be forgiven for thinking that this morning’s wedding was somewhere hot and dreamy like the South of France whereas in fact South Farm is an oasis of calm and rustic goodness near Cambridgeshire.

American gal Katie married her English gentleman Mike against the sunniest backdrop of canary yellow sunflowers and blue accents. Her maids – all Californian girls – wore the best bridesmaid outfits I’ve seen in a while…silken blue jumpsuits accessorised with delicate floral headpieces. Awesome.

This wedding is full of the sweetest details, from the signage dotted about the venue, to the funny prank Katie played on Mike in the ceremony and even the cheeky presents for the ushers. I know you’re just going to love all of it.

WOW.

I am actually speechless.

Where to start with this incredibly beautiful and intimate gold and white celebration in Cape Town…? I know the lighting. Have you ever seen such an incredible setting? The chandeliers are beautiful, the fairy lights magical and the atmosphere is. Just. Wonderful. Finished beautifully with an abundance of greenery and gold details. The whole look is so opulent and cosy, and just screams elegance.

I absolutely adore the outdoor ceremony in the garden of the Winery too, conducted by the grooms father to give a personal touch, and culminating in clinking of champagne glasses with guests as the bride and groom walked back down the aisle as husband and wife.

Fiona Clair Photography never fails to captured all the love and inspiration which is good for us as this destination wedding is PIN-tastic!

Hannah & Tom

We’ve shared several weddings with darker colour palettes this week, so it’s lovely to share something a little different this morning. Citrus tones never fail to make me smile and this weddings yellow colour scheme gets it spot on. Hannah & Tom’s rustic wedding at Bassmead Manor Barns is super pretty and full of details to covet (read steal).

White Stag weddings have captured some gorgeous images and the confetti moment is absolutely perfect. The brightly coloured confetti looks incredible and it’s just another moment that can’t fail to put a smile on your face.

Jessica & Claudia

We love featuring engagement sessions where the Bride is wearing fabulous clothes. It’s a nice change from seeing gorgeous wedding gowns everyday 😉 (We know, what a hardship…)

And this evening’s engagement shoot has double the dose of fashion as Jessica and Claudia BOTH have amazing style. Vintage finds, floral prints and fabulously full skirts, then smart lines, stylish trainers and shirts – both ladies look gorgeous.

Their engagement shoot is fun, natural and full of smiles, Kitty Wheeler Shaw is definitely one to watch and I’m already excited to see this wedding…
