{Planning Redefined} Engaging & Honest Training For The Modern Wedding Planner

The wedding industry has come on in leaps and bounds over the last few years. The creativity and freedom we see on a daily basis is not only really inspiring, but totally heart warming too. We all know that everyone loves a good wedding – but an impeccably planned wedding that truly reflects the couple getting married? That’s even better!

And while lots of areas of the industry are truly at the forefront of business, wedding planning training hasn’t quite caught up. That is until now. Because now we have Planning Redefined. Set up by experienced and highly respected planners, Katrina Otter and Lisa Johnson of Carmela Weddings, this training workshop is refreshingly honest, full of practical advice and SO MUCH FUN. I was lucky enough to attend the inaugural workshop at the beginning of the month, here’s what happened…

Kristy & David

Choosing orange as the accent colour for your big day is a bold move – but it has seriously paid off at Kristy and David’s rustic, love filled barn wedding. The gorgeous tone adds pop of colour to the more muted, natural surroundings and also works beautifully with the soft golden light in the barn. Not to mention the gorgeous bridesmaids who are looking utterly ravishing in a 70s-esque orange floral print.

Kristy writes really honestly about planning a wedding, so make sure you take the time to read her words of advice. The atmospheric images are by From The Smiths Photography. The couple portraits are just so dreamy I couldn’t chose which ones to include, so I’ve just added them all 🙂 Enjoy!

Often when British couples get married abroad, they have to hold their legal ceremony here in the UK but lovely Patricia and Nick were lucky enough to get married in the Marie local to their venue, because Nick’s family have lived in France for many years. Their big day is just so French and lovely, think beautiful buildings with gorgeous taupe bricks, pastel painted shutters, golden sunlight streaming into the grounds of their chateau – it’s all a total dream.

Images come from the wonderful Frankee Victoria, whose romantic style is just perfect for this occasion. Patricia and Nick made photography and music their priority which sounds very sensible to us! So read on to enjoy Frankee’s images and to find an awesome English band who are based in France, ready to rock your wedding day…

Ria & Jordan By Chris Barber Photography Pin Image

Ria & Jordan

The utterly gorgeous Ria and Jordan held their reception at the infamous Town Hall Hotel – we were lucky enough to attend an event there at the beginning of the year, and it truly is a fabulous place for a party. Opulent, elegant and intimate, Ria filled the space with greenery, white and pink florals and copper accents – all of which were DIY’d by friends and family.

On the subject of which, Ria’s bridesmaids look seriously HOT in Reformation dresses. And the leading lady herself dazzles in Delphine Manivet. Ria says she was drawn towards French designers and I totally understand why, their gowns have a real sense of understated, effortless beauty. Perfect for this wedding day then, non? Images come from Chris Barber, whose relationship with his couples always shines through in the frolics he captures.

Cold Summer, Warm Hearts - The Shard by Claudia Goedke Pin Image

Cold Summer, Warm Hearts

One of the very best things about working at RMW, is being able to share incredible industry talent with you all and today’s gorgeous inspiration comes from a planner and stylist we’re extremely excited about. We adore Anne’s minimal and elegant vision – which she describes as understated urban elegance. The fact that Anne has named her company Hilde after her Grandmother is also just so lovely. Beautiful styling that tells a true love story is what weddings should be about.

Anne has gathered an awesome team of creatives to help bring her vision together and I promise you, every aspect is executed to perfection. We’re also very proud that you’ll find Anne (and Lucy who made the stunning desserts) on our recommended supplier directory, The Love Lust List. Which happens to be completely relaunching NEXT WEEK. We may have mentioned it a *couple* of times (ahem ok a lot of times) but the fact is our recommended supplier directory has always been full of the very best the wedding industry has to offer – creatives like Anne at Hilde Stories who will help you bring your perfect wedding to life.

But for now, I suggest letting this soft, minimal and refined wedding inspiration envelop you, it’s all just so beautiful.

Merav & Martin By Green Antlers Photography Pin Image

Merav & Martin

This morning’s wedding takes us to sunny France for a classic, elegant wedding in a Chateau. Merav and Martin celebrated their wedding with close friends and family in the most beautifully French way – with lots of good food and wine of course!

Green Antlers were on hand to take some stunning photographs for them – the dusk shots outside the chateau are just dreamy and have me longing for warmer days and later sunsets. This wedding is an absolute stunner, but also feels homespun and intimate and I’m sure you’ll see what I mean when you enjoy the images…

A Gentle Autumn Breeze by Olivia Bossert Photography Pin Image

A Gentle Autumn Breeze

For today’s final feature, we’re heading to the coast, for an atmospheric inspiration shoot that incorporates several of our favourite things. Pampas grass, moongates and puppies. Could this actually be what heaven looks like?! The styling is from the lovely Elle at The Artful Event Co, who brings her industry-leading styling experience to a new venture. And it’s safe to say after seeing this shoot – we’re excited! If you’re looking for a wedding stylist then do get in touch.

The whole shoot is a visual treat. The colours and textures are just so perfect for the season, reflecting all of the natural tones in the flowers and coastal surroundings. Olivia has captured everything beautifully too, the moody skies, the chemistry between the couple and of course, her adorable puppy Milo (who quite frankly is the star of the show). Enjoy this one beauties, I’ll just be over here, dreaming of pampas grass and puppies…

Susie & Frazer by Tub of Jelly Pin Image

Susie & Frazer

Whenever a wedding from Tub Of Jelly lands in our submissions platform, we always know it’s going to be an absolute riot. Husband and wife duo Betty & David just attract the most fun loving, party loving, stylish couples. This afternoon’s gorgeous bride and groom Susie and Frazer even changed their original photographer to bag these guys! And it was most definitely the right decision…these images and film well and truly capture the free spirited nature of their wedding day.

Make sure you’re sitting comfortably, this is definitely one you’ll want to savour. Oh and the film is killer too, so if you’re at work, headphones at the ready!

Laura & Dave

If The Little Mermaid were to live in Sheffield, in 2017, then this is what I imagine her wedding would look like…Laura is essentially the human version of Ariel and she looks flippin’ gorgeous in her fishtail Pronovias gown.

Laura and Dave chose to hold their wedding at three different venues across Sheffield, each one totally unique, but all three perfect for the couple. I really like the idea of keeping things moving on your wedding day, sometimes a change of scenery livens things up, especially when each one holds new and exciting things to look at. From the lush botanical gardens, to the industrial Chimney House, to cocktails at a city bar – this wedding has it all.
