Well this is fun isn’t it? A giant yellow striped deck chair is definitely a good indicator of a wonderful wedding…
Briony and Ben themed their wedding around Ben’s job as a professional magician (I know, how awesome is that?!) So old-school magic posters and vintage carnival games were their first port of call. And I know you’ll agree that they did a great job, the whole day looks like an absolute riot!
It’s also rather lovely to look at too – Briony looks achingly elegant in ‘Lady’ by RMW Fashion Pack member Suzanne Neville, accessorised with pearls, her maids look divine in their milky latte coloured gowns and just wait until you see the bright red vintage jag that Ben whisked his Bride away in!!
And as if that wasn’t enough, the gorgeous bouquets brimming with roses, peonies and achillea were created by the lovely Karen at Passion For Flowers – who most definitely comes with a RMW seal of approval!
Right, that’s enough talking, let’s get on with it shall we?
Goodness me hasn’t this week gone quickly! And what a week it’s been. There have been some gorgeous weddings to swoon over and just in case you’ve missed anything, here’s my pick of the best from the last five days…
Inspiration this week came curtesy of this atmospheric shoot in the French mountains. The combination of dramatic scenery, gorgeous fashion (hello kilts, leather jackets and chunky scarves) and industrial styling made us go weak at the knees.
It’ll make you want to wrap up warm, grab your boy and head off on an adventure – promise. (Especially if there’s a whisky bar waiting for you at the end!)
Joanna and Craig’s wedding is a lovely way to round off the week. From Joanna’s gorgeous silk flower crown, to the floral archway, to the antique key table-plan, to the white wooden swing – it’s a wedding day just brimming with pretty details.
I think Joanna has some of the most perfect voluminous curls I’ve ever seen and her and Craig make a very elegant couple. We do love it when a Groom goes for an electric blue suit!!
Joanna and Craig had a very difficult moment in the run up to their wedding day, which meant they had to postpone their date…but thanks to their wonderful suppliers and the support of their friends and family they still had the day they had dreamed of.
Have a great weekend everyone and I’ll hand you over to Joanna to tell her and Craig’s story…

Hi everyone! I can’t quite believe it’s post three already, the last four weeks have flown by and been super busy, although just like Summer – not much to do with the wedding, instead just general life etc.
So what have we done since the last post? Very little, actually. I feel that I should be more worried about how little we’ve done, but I’m just very relaxed about everything. I don’t see there is any point in getting your knickers in a twist about things, otherwise where’s the fun in planning?! However, being sensible (ish), I thought I’d use this post to update you on what little we have done, and ask advice and questions on what to do next.
Firstly, we had lunch and spent time in the spa at our gorgeous venue, Walton Hall, as mentioned in the last post, all in the name of research…obviously.
When it comes to wedding entertainment, it’s hard to beat a live band rocking, jiving, or jazzing up your wedding party! But what kind of wedding bands are best for your wedding? There is an infinite number of possibilities out there, what with all of the different genres of music and different times of W-day that would be enhanced by musical accompaniment!!!
So today, Love Lust List members and the UK’s largest online entertainment agency, Alive Network are here to help by telling us their top suggestions for great bands to get your guests bustin’ some moves (yes…I did just say that. And yes…I’m cringing at myself).
What type of music are you having for your big day? Let us know if Alive Network inspire you to go for something a little different…
Now this folks, this is how you do a marquee-in-the-garden wedding. Laura and Will have, in my humble opinion, only gone and nailed the most perfect laidback garden wedding. There are lots of signs for cocktails (at last someone who loves the beverage as much as I do!), supersized balloons waving gaily from wooden fences, some epic ‘dance floor rules’ (lunges anyone?!), happy maids clutching white bouquets and one of the prettiest table plans I ever did see.
But perhaps my favourite part of the wedding, apart from the Choos and of course the loving is the table decor and marquee styling. It’s fresh, it’s green and by heck I’ve never seen anything like it before. There are ditsy, floral, mossy green napkins, cratefuls of blooms, oodles of sweet peas, blowsy hydrangeas and actual trees dispersed along the tables. It looks so modern yet so pretty at the same time and I adore it.
Laura and Will…I take my hat off to you.

How about we all jet off this afternoon to revel in the big day of the gorgeous Hayley and Matt. These two decided to get together, get engaged and get married (not all at the same time I might add!) on the sweetest Greek island called Ios because it holds such a special place in their hearts.
They decided to do away with many wedding traditions in favour of creating a day that reflected them as a couple as well as making it an amazing experience for all their friends and family and I have to say that looking at the delicious photos it definitely made for the most wonderful ‘I Do’.
I’m also very much liking Hayley’s Enzoani frock and those wonderful peachy pink bridesmaid dresses – the perfect accompaniment to that scenic backdrop of blue skies and white beaches.

Holly and Tom had such an incredible day at Upwaltham Barns that it has left me feeling somewhat alliterative. Divine dress, fabulous florals, beautiful blossom, delicious details and scores of smiles, that pretty much sums it up perfectly!
Tom & Holly live in Australia so their wedding allowed them to catch up with lots of friends and family from back home, it was a fun celebration with a cool laid back vibe.
