In all the excitement of planning your wedding it’s easy to get caught up in the minute details of the day. Is the font on your invites the exact shade of blush you want or will that beautifully crafted wall of origami cranes hang correctly? Yes, these are important. They are what makes your day unique and brings together everything you want in your day. Without these gorgeous details we wouldn’t have half as many wonderful weddings to share with you. But sometimes it feels right to remind you to cherish the moments rather than the things. That gentle kiss, the proud look in your father’s eye or that subtle hand squeeze that reassures you. It could just be the mad laughter that overtakes you as you see the best man strutting his stuff on the dance floor.
I always have a soft spot for a Sheffield wedding as it’s my university city and where I lived with my boyfriend for the first time, so I’ve loved putting together Jaye and Tom’s big day. I can totally vouch for Tamper Coffee too, in fact, I’m tempted to jump in the car and head back up North to visit the warehouse space they’ve just taken over in addition to their coffee shops, Jaye and Tom’s wedding reception just looks so cool, the styling is spot on.
Funnily enough I’m also a huge fan of Kate Halfpenny’s designs, and Jaye looks simply beautiful in her Halfpenny London gown. Kate’s gowns are always an absolute feast for the eyes and this one is no exception. The pretty lace crop top over the silky slip dress has got my heart all of a flutter – Kate knows how to design dresses that fit beautifully.
Enjoy this wedding lovely ones, it’s the perfect blend of romantic meets industrial styling…
Bath is such a beautiful place I can totally understand why this gorgeous couple would wanted to marry there. Not just in any location, at the fabulous Assembly Rooms and Roman Baths too. Photographer Steph Newton literally must have thought all her Christmas’s had come at once, capturing the love amongst such historic and beautiful surroundings, and oh my are the pictures dreamy.
A lot of thought and detail went into this contemporary wedding. None more so than the fashion. With the Groomsmen donning sharp navy blue suits and the Bridesmaids in fabulous coral frocks from the high street, But last and no means least Bride Laura who wore a sumptuous Charlie Brear gown adding a touch of glamour to the day. I’d also very much like to steal her earrings and shoes. SO pretty.
From the pastel painted walls of the Assembly Rooms to the aged brick of the nearby buildings and the chalky colours of the raw stone around the roman Baths, every photo is engulfed in colour, history & love. What a day!
What we wanted for our minimoon (and what we needed after a hectic few
weeks months in the run up to the wedding day) was somewhere calm with a slow pace of life, somewhere we could amble around at a leisurely pace and take stock. Above everything we wanted to spend a fews days just chatting about the wedding and not a lot else! Mousehole in Cornwall with it’s cobbled streets, slate roofed white washed houses, picture postcard harbour and olde-worlde public house was the ideal location for such activities.
Well if you can’t get whisked off your feet by a handsome man on your wedding day, then when can you quite frankly…?!
This morning we’re off to the Lake District for a quirky and fun wedding brimming with pops of neon, flamingoes and Easter Eggs. Oh and Jenny Packham, beautiful sparkly Jenny Packham. I’ll let Bride Kate tell you all about how she found her dress – it’s a lovely story and hopefully one that will encourage you to take a gamble when it comes to finding ‘the one.’
The Belsfield, Kate and David’s venue, is actually owned by Laura Ashley, hence all of the delicious sofas, wall paper and decor. What a fabulous location to hold your wedding celebrations! Images and the stunning video come from Tub of Jelly, who always manage to capture dramatic light, along with emotion, brought together with a real sense of fun. Enjoy this one lovelies, it’s a real treat for a Friday!
Sarah and George’s wedding was a weekend long celebration at Chateau Rigaud, combining their ceremony and reception with a boozy family lunch and a big party for George’s 30th birthday. What’s not to love about making the celebrations as big as possible?! And if you can do it in such incredible surroundings, all the better!!! We feature lots of weekend-long nuptials here on RMW, but I must admit this is one of my favourites to date…
It looks like a huge amount of fun and frivolity was had, and everyone looked gorgeous too. Sarah’s wearing Hermione De Paula – the bridal designer of the moment whose bold floral designs are instantly recognisable. And just look at those HOT bridesmaids in mustard yellow? I’m absolutely loving this hue for the bridal party.
One of the enduring wedding trends that continues to feature so frequently (even from the moment I joined Rock My Wedding back in 2012) is the blush colour theme. Piles upon piles of exquisitely framed images all using tones of peachy, pinky blush hues with a dash of gold here or a splash of dove grey there. And it never gets old. Not ever.
Well it doesn’t for me at least. In fact I don’t think that it’s a colour scheme that can be bested in terms of the romance, love and classic glamour that it imbues…plus it flatters all venues, all brides (yes and grooms too!), all settings and all seasons. The colour palette has versatility in spades.
Kate and Rob along with Olive in Love (who Kate found on our fabulous recommended supplier directory The Love Lust List) have done an amazing job at planning this gorgeous peachy, destination wedding at Villa Catignano. As well as being absolutely breathtaking its location just outside Siena in Italy was the perfect central spot for their 130 guests travelling from 15 different counties.
As you can imagine with family from all over the world, there were lots of different cultures to incorporate into the day. My favourite being the Pacific dance off between families whilst donning DIY flower garlands around their necks. Such fun.
You definitely need to check out Kate’s Terry Fox gown too. The back and spaghetti straps are exquisite. She is undoubtably radiating beauty, and it’s not just down to being a blushing bride…
Well if this wedding doesn’t get you in the mood for a party then I honestly don’t know what will. It just looks like an absolute riot, from the moment Rebbie started getting ready her Bridesmaids, to the last raucous dance moves thrown on the dance floor.
Rebbie is lucky enough to work for The Real Flower Company, which meant her wedding was adorned with gorgeous, heavily scented British grown flowers – it looks magical and I can only imagine how amazing it must have been for guests to behold – just heavenly. Then there’s her Claire Pettibone gown to swoon over – Rebbie just makes the most beautiful Bride, with a huge smile on her face all day long…
