RMW Real Bride Diary {Emma & Dean: Flowers}

Happy Mother’s day you lovely lot!

Today’s a really appropriate day for me to talk to you about flowers, because my lovely Mum is definitely a big driving force behind the floral vision for our big day. You see, I have developed my love of florals later in life. A peak at my Instagram feed will probably show you that pretty blooms are a regular feature in my house, so that they can grace my feed in style.

But, and it’s a big but, my knowledge of flowers is pretty thin on the ground.

Sophie & Louis

Sophie and Louis are simply adorable. Both of their facial expressions as they are getting ready are priceless – anticipation, nerves, excitement and joy – there’s nothing quite like the melting pot of emotions that is your wedding morning! Sophie looks like a Princess in her stunning Suzanne Neville gown. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, it’s always worth trying on a style of dress you hadn’t considered before. Sophie’s stylist at her boutique suggested this gown and I have to say, it’s perfect for her!

Images come from the lovely Mary & Maurizio at Quattro Studio who you’ll find on our Love Lust List. If you’re planning an Italian wedding too, then we’d certainly recommend their dreamy style.

Oh and one final mention – THAT incredible lighting! The evening festivities look simply magical – a fitting end to the day for our Princess bride.

When Louise from One Stylish Day burst onto the wedding scene last year, we were very excited – we loved her branding, we loved her Instagram feed and we just knew we had to share her talents with you lovely lot. Louise offers her bespoke planning and styling services to couples across the country and she’s one of our current sponsors, which means we really rate her talents.

This gorgeous shoot at Victoria Warehouse shows you can do ethereal and elegant in an industrial space – you just need Louise involved 😉

Livvy & Josh

I’ve been looking forward to sharing this gorgeous wedding for a while. Livvy and Josh are both absolute beauties and their wedding was a stylish, winter wonderland of a day, bathed in golden sunlight and full of smiles. All captured in glorious detail by Richard Skins.

Elmore Court is an amazing venue, the perfect size, the perfect mix of classic and contemporary – our very own Creative Director Adam got married there last September to Lizzie and we, like Livvy and Josh, had a fabulous time.

And I can’t not mention Livvy’s outfit – she looks amazing in Rime Arodaky separates combined with a faux fur jacket from Oasis. The perfect attire for a winter Bride…

Sarah & Phil

WOW, where do I begin… There is SO much to take in.

Sarah & Phil didn’t have a set theme, they just included EVERYTHING they love including a marquee reception in their back garden, which just oozes a lovely relaxed vibe, not to mention a plethora of DIY decor and entertaining garden games, and it all just works!

There’s dinosaurs to pay homage to their joint love for Jurassic Park, a photo booth, pin the tail on the donkey, pom poms, homemade cakes, wild flowers and SO much more. If you need inspiration and cheering up this Friday afternoon THIS is the wedding for you. Enjoy lovely ones it’s a goodie.

Massive shout out to Schryver Photo too for capturing all this deliciousness for us to feast our eyes upon.

Caroline & Ed

This wedding has it all. Wonderfully classic, gorgeously chic and fabulously rustic. The blue and white colour scheme is utterly divine too, being picked up in the bridesmaids stunning For Her and For Him gowns, not to mention the bloomsey cornflower hydrangeas in the centrepieces, church floral arch and bouquets. It’s no wonder Bride Caroline kept hers so near as you’ll see from all the heartfelt moments captured by Frances Sales Photography.

Also, Caroline in her Ingrida Bridal gown has to be one of the smiliest brides we’ve featured, instantly lifting your spirits and seriously making you re-think your bridal look. Her chic chignon bridal up do with flower crown looks SO beautiful, do you think we could get away with this for everyday?

10 Top Tips For Styling A Beautiful Wedding Reception

How many times have you seen a stunning tablescape or place setting on Pinterest and thought ‘OOOOOOHHHH I’d love to have that at my wedding day’ and then had a total confidence crisis and decided that there’s no way you could recreate it in real life? I’m guessing more than once. We’ve all been there.

There is this crazy idea that the weddings we see on Pinterest aren’t real. Well most of them are! We feature beautiful weddings every single day on RMW and more often than not they are styled by the couple (with a little help from some fabulous wedding suppliers). THOSE are the ones we see repinned the most – not the styled shoots. You can TOTALLY do it, just read these top tips from Love Lust List stylists Duchess and Butler and you’ll be well on your way to a beautiful wedding…

Zoe & Luke

Gosh this wedding is pretty. Every single element works together beautifully, Zoe has a real eye for combining colours and details. I love that she even went as far as coordinating the edible flowers in the Pimms to the rest of the scheme – that’s attention to detail for you right there! This garden party wedding was held at The Walled Gardens, which looks like such a lovely place to host your wedding celebrations.

Images come from Grace Elizabeth, a school friend of Zoe’s who just happens to be an amazing photographer. We love this stylish, elegant, pretty day and I’ve got a feeling you will too…

Daniela & Carlo

In the words of fabulous wedding photographer Samuel Docker “This was a trip and a half!!” I couldn’t agree more. The gorgeous Tuscan views and the stunning Villa Catureglio has literally taken my breath away whilst putting this destination wedding together for you lovely lot. As has Bride Daniela’s customised David Fielden gown. The tulle skirt and embellished bodice look truly magical amongst the greenery and natural beauty, especially when lit by the dreamy sunset.

Also making me mouth a huge sigh is Daniela & Carlo’s gorgeous Golden Retriever. Doesn’t he look dapper in his floral collar and so at ease roaming around during the romantic outdoor ceremony. And if you still need convincing as to whether or not you should include festoon lights at your wedding, this wedding’s gorgeous display will definitely convince you.

Pinning fingers at the ready. You’re not going to want to forget this gorgeous day.
