Imogen & Martin

I do so love a city wedding.

There’s something so chic about weddings ‘in town‘ that it makes me want to plan a vow renewal in the metropolis complete with cocktails and a chauffeured E-Type Jag with a pile of monogrammed trunks (for the second honeymoon) secured to the luggage rack with my very own Parker. But you don’t want to hear this waffling. No indeed, you’d like to see the wonderful big day of Imogen and Martin instead.

There are wildflower bouquets and dusky purple bridesmaid dresses, there are boys in blue and a cheese cake and romantic kisses on stairwells. Those of you planning your own city nuptials definitely need to check this wonderful wedding out.

Lorna & George

It’s a perfectly pretty Spring wedding on offer this morning; more specifically the gorgeous big day from Lorna and George at Askham Hall in Cumbria. Lorna tells me her hubby George was very involved in the planning of their travel inspired wedding sourcing their suppliers and spending hours punching heart shaped confetti from a stack of vintage atlases. Apparently George was also instrumental in finding their wedding photographer Sam Docker too. What a superstar!

Anyway I digress. There are so many lovely touches in this wedding that it’s impossible to list them all but I will give a special mention to the lovely bridesmaids’ dresses and the wonderful vintage travel themed centrepieces on their wedding tables, oh and their card table too. So thoughtful and so beautiful too.

Peach Flavoured Delights

It’s been a long time since we’ve shared a colour themed inspiration post here on Rock My Wedding so we thought we would rectify that situation pretty sharpish in this afternoon’s post in our coral and peach flavoured affair.

It’s no secret that Team RMW are huge fans of the peach/coral colour scheme wedding. Hell we wax lyrical about the hue at pretty much every appropriate opportunity. Perhaps it’s because it’s such a pretty shade or maybe it’s because it’s such an adaptable and flattering hue for all seasons of the year, either way we just can’t get enough of it.

So this afternoon we’ll be showing you lovelies how to create your very own peach inspired wedding through your delicious decor, beautiful bouquets and foxy fashion choices. Let’s take a look…

Annie & Gareth

This morning’s wedding is pretty with a capital ‘P’. It’s fresh, it’s light and oh so dreamy and I’m completely lusting after Annie’s candy pink peony and ranunculus bouquet which complements her delicate lace Stewart Parvin gown perfectly.

Annie mentioned that she incorporated flourishes of pink into her neutral colour scheme for a pretty country garden feel and I think she’s hit the nail on the head wonderfully. I also adore the sweet monogrammed teacups next to Annie and Gareth’s cake which double up as a cake topper without being a cake topper per se.

Also can we just talk about the cake for a moment. Whoever thought up of the combination of Guinness and chocolate is a ruddy genius in my eyes…I would very much like to try a slice of this bad boy!

Come on, let’s take a look…

Bryony & Nick

We love a good barn wedding, even more so when there’s heaps of individual touches that reflect the happy couple in question and there’s no doubting that’s what we’ve got this morning in the big day of Bryony and Nick.

We have bunting and fairy lights, jam jars and giant light up letters, milk churns and tassels all of which are topped off by some epic dancing and a dollop of ice-cream. I really really love Bryony’s Sassi Holford gown too – I don’t think I’ll ever tire of a lace sleeve especially when your maids have got them to boot. Epic.

Ruth & Neil

I actually don’t even know where to begin with Ruth and Neil’s big day. Perhaps I should start by saying that I think this is perhaps one of my favourite weddings EVER to appear on Rock My Wedding. I should probably follow this up with the fact that I found this the hardest wedding to curate for these pages because I wanted to include every single image in the slider at the top here. So will you promise me that you’ll take five minutes to look at all the images below in the gallery. Pinky promise?

Whenever we’re sent a wedding by photography genius Mister Phill, we know it’s going to be special but this unique do is an absolute corker. It’s clear that Ruth and Neil invested so much time and effort into making their knot-tying uniquely them. There is signage, there is an epic order of service, there are hay bales and a very sweet bouquet that you would never have guessed was not made by a professional.

There are awesome speeches and truly immense supersized posters (I honestly went green with envy when I saw the posters). There are doughnut eating contests, passionate smooches, branded signage for different parts of the wedding breakfast. Hell even the pieces of paper slotted into the vintage typewriter were branded. These two thought of EVERYTHING.

And I couldn’t not go without wondering if anyone else thought that Ruth has a touch of Sophie Dahl about her? She so wonderfully channels the English Rose archetype in her beautiful dress.

Becky & James

I’ve been lucky enough to have attended a wedding at this morning’s big day venue – The Curradine Barns – and I can attest to its beauty and the fantastic food provided by the catering team there. I was amazed though to see how different it looked from how I remembered it when I looked at the photos from Becky and James’ wedding however – still completely wonderful but altered nonetheless. Proof then that even the simplest touches like bunting and flowers can truly change a venue into a special place that reflects you as a couple for the day.

Becky is a stunner in her lace dress with a smile that radiates her entire face and James is clearly a smitten kitten. Oh and I couldn’t not mention their awesome bags of confetti – so colourful and bright and fun! I just know you’ll love them too!

Alex & James

Oh my! We’ve got a bit of a romantic do for you this morning…all ice-cream shades and tails and sparkly bridesmaids. Get those pinning fingers at the ready!!

Alex and James married at River Cottage, a venue they both knew and loved and had earmarked long before they were even engaged (I ruddy love that!) and it’s not hard to see why. With their gorgeous ceremony outside (complete with ribbon tying ritual), evening dancing in the barn, River Cottage catering (you just know the food will be good!) and to top it all off, a yurt with a roaring log fire, you would be hard pressed to say no.

They accessorised the venue perfectly with a delicate Catherine Deane bridal gown, the prettiest pumps, lace bunting and gypsophila and a heapful of love and laughter. Just beautiful!

Rhiannon & Dave

There’s a special place in my heart for Winter weddings, especially when they’re in Scotland and set against a glorious backdrop of hills and mountains and lit up by candlelight. Which incidentally Rhiannon and Dave’s big day was…I know how lucky are we this morning!

Rhiannon married the love of her life in a Lusan Mandongus frock whilst Dave sported a bit of traditional tartan cut in a very modern way. Granted it was January and one of the coldest months of the year but warmth and love oozes from every one of the photos you see below. If there is one adjective to describe this gorgeous couple’s big day then it’s got to be ‘spectacular’. From the show-stopping fireworks for the guests in the evening to the dashing groomsmen and to the monumental displays of flowers that appeared on the tables and down the aisle; everything is a wonderful statement of love.

Enjoy folks!
