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.
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!
I adore a Winter wedding as the cold gives everyone a fresh glow, the bold colours appear even more vibrant and somehow it feels as if everything is more glamorous – maybe it’s the faux fur, smart shoes and gentlemen in waistcoats? Anyway, Joanna and Pete’s wedding is industrial luxe at it’s very finest. Joanna looks so chic in a bespoke gown with the most gorgeous sequin work on the top, the bridesmaids look sophisticated in black (who says it doesn’t work for weddings?!) and the boys look dapper in RMW fave Jack Bunneys.
The whole day feels stylish yet relaxed and has been captured beautifully by Heather at Eclection Photography, I love the images of the girls getting ready together and she has also captured the season to perfection, you can almost hear the rustle of leaves as you look through this feature…
Well if this wedding doesn’t make you want to pack up your bags and head straight to Portugal, then I don’t know what will…the whole day is just a delight from start to finish. Bride Vanessa is a designer with a newly launched wedding styling business, so naturally, her and Tom’s big day is just beautiful. I love the way they’ve opted for very simple, clean decor as this feels perfect for a cool dinner under the baking hot Portugal sun. The venue, which just happens to be Vanessa’s mothers house, is incredible and the pair were very lucky to hold their nuptials there.
Vanessa and Tom’s magical wedding day (or should I say weekend) was captured by Ali Paul, whose style is just dreamy. The couple portraits are SO romantic and Ali has captured all the fun too.
Beautiful Babington House is such a gorgeous wedding venue and it’s always a treat to share weddings from there. It was the perfect venue for Laura and Dan’s stylish Autumnal affair. Look out for the gorgeous table set ups, the immense fashion by Mirror Mirror and Self Portrait, and the couple shots under the lanterns.
Images come from one of our recommended suppliers, the lovely Matt Parry, who has captured the day perfectly in his usual relaxed and fun style.
I’ll always have a place in my heart for Sheffield, as it’s a city I’ve spent a lot of time in. This shoot also focuses on botanicals, which is one of my favourite styling themes, so naturally, I’ve got all the heart eyes for this one. The colours are gorgeous, so earthy, warm and natural and it’s lovely to see a botanical shoot with a focus on flowers again, rather than foliage. It also shows that you can totally embrace a botanical vibe for a city wedding. Flower crowns aren’t just for countryside affairs you know.
There’s a dream team of suppliers behind it, like planners Once Upon A Wedding and florists, Frances & Rose, so make sure you check out their websites if you’re planning a wedding in South Yorkshire or beyond 🙂
So as a bit of Sunday fun and given that the penultimate series of Game Of Thrones kicks off in the UK tomorrow, we thought we’d put together a piece on styling your wedding with a Game Of Thrones theme, in a Rock My Wedding style of course. We don’t often delve into the world of wedding themes, as we much prefer when a look is organically brought together, but sometimes a dash of personality is in order and if Game Of Thrones is your go-to for #netflixandchill, then maybe including some subtle nods to the series in your decor would really suit the vibe of your day.
This wedding is extra special so I’d like you to make sure you’re sitting comfortably with a large cup of tea in hand before we begin. The images come from Willo Photography, who some of you may remember as Lee, the husband of RMW Real Bride Karen, whose wedding planning journey we featured a couple of years ago. Karen and Lee have a special place in our hearts as they are two utterly lovely beings, and their wedding was epic, so we’re thrilled that Lee is now carving out a career as a wedding photographer himself. We couldn’t be more happy for them 🙂
Alex and Martyn found Lee of Willo Photography right here on RMW, so that makes this wedding even more special. It’s just like one big happy family here and if you find a supplier on our wedding directory, you know they are going to help you have the best day ever. Anyway, here are the gorgeous images and lovely words…so much love for this feature.
Over the last month or so, we’ve been sharing a series on bridal beauty and today we’re discussing spots. If you’ve ever suffered from acne you’ll be able to relate, so we’d love to hear your thoughts and recommendations below the post too. I’ll pass you over to Bex, who is sharing her story with us today…
