RMW Real Bride Diary {Emma & Dean: The Final Countdown}

I can’t believe that this is my final real bride diary and in just a few short days I am going to become Mrs Walsh and marry my favourite person in the world!!! It’s all pretty exciting, but it’s all pretty hectic too.

One tip I would definitely pass on to brides-to-be who are a little further out on their wedding day countdown is make sure you help yourself by getting as much of your DIY and organisation stuff done as early as possible.

Pink Tropicana

I’ve been looking forward to sharing this bright and bold inspiration shoot with you all for a while now. Amy Faith had me after one glimpse at THAT hot pink bouquet, and that was before I’d even seen the gorgeous dresses, table decor and epic cake topper. Her ethos that your wedding day should reflect your personal tastes is exactly how we feel too.

Not only does this shoot look gorgeous, but according to Amy it has actually been scientifically proven that both the colour pink and being surround by plants changes your life in a positive way. An excellent excuse to share a hot pink botanical shoot with you all then? Enjoy!

Keziah & John

You HAVE to look out for the gorgeous moment captured by Shutter Go Click Photography of Groom John during the speeches overcome with emotion and reaching out to his mum, it is simply adorable, just like the top table pin wheel back drop and wooden signs Keziah & John cleverly DIY-ed.

Next your eyes will be drawn to all the romantic blooms, featuring so many of our favourite stems; proteas, anemones and dahlias to name a few, all designed with foliage by Campbells Flowers to give that just picked look.

And the location for this dreamy wedding is the delightful The Mansion. A Greek Palladian style Grade II listed building, set in one of Europe’s largest urban parks, Roundhay in Leeds providing the bride and groom the sweetest place for portraits.

Hannah & Steven

Aynhoe Park ALWAYS makes us smile. Every time I see a wedding featured there I always stumble across a new detail I love, and I NEVER tire of seeing the hanging giraffe. The incredibly unique decor was perfect for Hannah & Steven’s blush & white theme with unicorn details, giving an incredibly romantic feel to this achingly elegant wedding.

The colour scheme was even echoed in bride Hannah’s dreamy blush wedding dress. Plus she has an entourage of bridesmaids, flower girls and page boys in equally stunning attire that’ll have you wanting to increase your bridal squad immediately.

I can’t think of a better photographer than Lucy Davenport to capture this whimsical day, as her fine art style suits it down to the ground.

Chloe & David

This classic navy & white wedding on the Isles of Scilly is a little slice of heaven. The coastal views will take your breath away and the love between our gorgeous couple will swell your heart.

Bride Chloe wears a fairytale princess Pronovias gown which is exquisite with its lace bodice and fishtail tulle skirt. The Groomsmen don sharp navy Ted Baker suits and the bridesmaids look a vision in complimenting elegant navy ASOS gowns.

Plus more of those picturesque views and wonderful memories captured by Jason Mark Harris Photography.

Bold Is Beautiful

I love sharing inspiration shoots planned and styled by Natalie Hewitt because they are always so polished and beautifully put together. Today’s is no exception – a brightly coloured floral bonanza showcasing the stunning new barn at Abbey Farm. I adore Natalie’s idea of demonstrating that barn weddings can feel fine art, as well as rustic, and these dreamy images most definitely show that.

The gorgeous model wears the prettiest gown by Jesus Peiro, whose collections you can find in our Look Book pages. It’s the perfect gown to add a touch of sophistication to the barn setting.

Esha & Thom

Please get yourselves a hot cuppa and settle down somewhere comfortable for this one, as it’s such a gorgeous, heartfelt wedding day that you’ll really want to savour it. Esha and Thom’s write up left me beaming from ear to ear, it truly is one of the loveliest reports from a couple I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. The pair’s village hall wedding was all about doing things their way and it’s just a joy to behold. I’m not going to give away too many spoilers, but make sure you look out for Esha’s pitstop at her Grandma’s house before the ceremony, Thom’s wild entrance and the couple’s clever ways of making their ceremony completely unique.

I don’t think there could be a more suitable person to have captured it either, Alline from Beatrici Photography and Esha and Thom go together like gin and tonic. It’s such a gorgeous day everyone, enjoy!

Majella & Paul

This gorgeous wedding starts with a heartaching-ly romantic proposal story leaving a huge lump in my throat, some serious brownie points have to go to groom Paul, and after a long engagement culminates in to a gorgeous vintage pastel wedding at Beeston Manor in Lancashire.

Adding to the vintage vibes is bride Majella’s gorgeous tea length wedding dress, carefully designed by Something Blue to include all the elements she loves. And not to be forgotten the bridesmaids in their polka dot 50s style dresses from Lindy Bop which are not only incredibly sweet, but also an absolute bargain at £25 each.

Be sure to check out the all the DIY decor, dollies, beautiful blooms and more, all captured for your viewing pleasure by Ally M Photography.
