This morning we’re heading to the Azores, for an elopement in a volcano. Don’t worry it’s no longer active, just incredibly beautiful! Now a lake known as ‘Lake of Fire’ it was the perfect backdrop for Sarah and James’ elopement. Adriana Morais was there to capture all the magic – the light, the mist and the amazing vibrant greenery; this really does look like a once in a lifetime experience. It’s making me want to go on an adventure! How about you?
I’m going to begin with a quote from Wanderlust Creatives themselves…
‘A wedding is always a happy, joyful event, no doubt; but with this styled bridal inspiration, we thought of how somber thoughts have a huge part in making one’s wedding day such a beautiful, romantic moment: remembrance of loved ones who are not present for the union; memories of past, painful relationships that actually brought forth a happier time; tears cried to express exhilaration from finally tying the knot! Yes, we took inspiration in something intangible yet very familiar – nostalgia.’
Isn’t that such a beautiful idea? To me it suggests that wedding photography captures so much more than an moment in time. It captures the history of two people, coming together as one. ‘All things born of the soul that can only be felt.’ I love how the team have created this feeling in their gorgeous imagery…
We had the pleasure of meeting gorgeous bride Vivienne in London for a work meeting at the beginning of the year. Viv’s excitement about her wedding day was infectious, so it’s really lovely to be able to share her and James’ beautiful day with you all. The couple have created a truly elegant occasion, from the florals to the fashion, every element is truly timeless. Viv wears Ronald Joyce and quite rightly states that there aren’t many times in life where you can wear a silk ballgown…so you may as well make the most of it! And we’re so glad she did, Viv looks incredible.
And for such a stylish, classic wedding, an elegant photographer was needed – step in Anneli Marinovich, whose style reflects Viv and James’ big day to perfection. And make sure you watch the film from Cupcake Videos – it really brings the day to life. Congratulations lovely Viv, and thank you for sharing your day with us.

If you like your weddings homemade and full of DIY and sentiment then STOP, get comfortable and savour every moment of this Lineham Farm wedding in Leeds.
Bride Emily’s dad designed all the stationery, table names and signs whilst her green fingered mum grew all the flowers so the barn reception and outdoor woodland ceremony would be full of pretty wild blooms. DIY colourful bunting was also crafted which was hung everywhere and looks absolutely incredible tying everything in beautifully.
Both of them look absolutely incredible in their wedding attire, and perfectly in keeping with the country vibe. Emily wore the prettiest of Catherine Deane lace gowns, and Jamie had the suavest of wool Ben Sherman suits teamed with a bow tie and gingham shirt. The pair of them are literally beaming from ear to ear the whole time and I challenge you not to do the same when you pore over the images by Shutter Go Click Photography.
The tones in this morning’s wedding are just sooooo beautiful. Gorgeous maids in lilac with a deeper purple in the bouquets, accented with pops of yellow and all bathed in soft Scottish summer light. I always love featuring weddings from The Byre at Inchyra, it truly looks like a magical venue – with it’s fairy lit ceremony room, stunning brick barn with huge doors, all surrounded by rolling countryside. Our couple Carlynne & Paul certainly fell for it, this was the only venue they visited. It was love at first sight for Carlynne and her Suzanne Neville dress too – again this was the first dress she tried on!
Images come from the wonderful Maureen Du Preez, whose weddings I adore featuring as she somehow always captures the invisible moments at a wedding – peoples thoughts and feelings. And these are the things you want to remember about your wedding day, so she’s one very talented lady. Right, let’s begin shall we? If you’re getting married in Scotland, prepare to get excited…
With the nights drawing in and the clocks going back very soon, it’s the perfect time to cosy up with some gorgeous homeware picks from our favourite wedding gift list provider, The Wedding Shop. During the winter months we spend much more time in our homes, so it’s only natural that we’d want to make them feel cosy; a welcome retreat at the end of a long day.
When it comes to choosing items for your wedding list, thinking seasonally is a fantastic way to make sure you don’t miss anything that you’d really love for your home. When you’re planning your wedding in Spring and Summer, things like blankets, candles and casserole dishes probably aren’t high on your agenda – but when the season turns you’ll be really glad you added these products to your wedding list…
East Midlands brides you are in for a treat! Former international fashion buyer, Julia, had a vision to create a luxury yet friendly space in Nottinghamshire for brides to enjoy discovering their individual bridal style in, and she’s absolutely succeeded. Today we’re thrilled to give you a peek inside this wonderful space, which we think is perfect for a relaxing day of dream dress hunting surrounded by your best girls.
We’re bringing you the prettiest wedding this morning, with an elegant and minimal ceremony at Compton Verney, followed by a bright and colourful reception in one of PapaKata’s infamous Sperry Tents. This means the best of both worlds – classic white wedding meets big party in a field. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it?! It’s YOUR wedding day after all.
Lovely Lissy found their photographer, Emma Pilkington, right here on RMW, which always makes us happy. Talking of which, the bridesmaids blue tulle skirts are also bound to put a smile on your face, the girls all look gorgeous!
