It’s here. It’s finally arrived. Yes lovelies, I can AT LAST share the ridiculously pretty spring-filled, heart-shaped extravaganza that is ‘Enamoured’ – Rock My Wedding’s first editorial shoot of 2014.
If you stopped by the blog yesterday then you’ll have read my post on the inspiration for this love inspired shoot. You’ll know then that we wanted a girly feast of heart-shaped balloons, champagne and more shoes than you could ever imagine.
And so we set about sourcing the very best petals and marshmallows and candy floss and glitter and love hearts and mini eggs and heart-shaped glasses and ribbons and shoes that the world had to offer.
Your six year old self would be proud.
Every single shoot from 2013 took place outdoors, in sun-drenched meadows, under fecund branches of wisteria, in forests and dappled glades. Hell we even went to the beach! For 2014, we decided to move our creative vision indoors against a back-drop of off-white floorboards and ummm bathtubs…
More on the bathtubs later…
And who were we going to use to capture our romantic capers? Well that would be the lovely Julia from Julia & You Photography. Her talent for capturing beautiful detailing and romantic outlook suited our vision perfectly and we are bowled over by the results.
Let’s take a look…
If you follow our Facebook page or my Instagram account then you might have seen some of our sneak peeks of our first RMW styled editorial of 2014. Not content with a gentle transition back into work after the Christmas break we decided to launch a new blog whilst simultaneously staging a sizeable shoot down in London.
ALL in January.
No rest for the wicked eh?
I have a tendency to be a bit ‘serious’ when it comes to envisioning and styling editorial. I like everything to be ‘just so’ whilst epitomising grown-up glamour at the same time. My chosen colour-palettes tend to be muted and on the sophisticated side of the spectrum and I’m always drawn to wistful ponderous images as opposed to those about the lighter side of life.
Despite my confessions above I am a hopeless romantic and I adore Valentine’s Day (yes I know it’s a commercial gimmick) I just can’t help myself. And I love this time of year – full of the promise of longer days and sunshine and Spring flowers and lambs gambolling in the fields.
It made perfect sense then to make the first RMW editorial of 2014 a (personal) challenge, something unexpected, something carefree and girly and FUN.
‘Enamoured’ as we’ve so aptly named it is the result.
I hope you like it…
As always we love to share the inspiration behind all of our editorial shoots with you lovely lot before the grand reveal; the smorgasboard of delicious images below should give you a hint of what’s to come tomorrow afternoon.… View the full post.
It’s Friday afternoon. It’s the end of January. The weather is absolutely abysmal, and that’s putting it mildly. Fancy planning your escape to sunny shores???
Thought so. I’ll pass you over to Online Luxury Travel Advisors Of The Year, Holidays Please…
I remember it clearly, I was sat on the edge of the most beautiful infinity pool on mini-moon in Mykonos and I just thought, you know what? I’m going to give it a go, why the hell not – what’s the worst that can happen?
What I was thinking about at the time was the creation of a UK specific wedding blog, I had used various American sites for inspiration in the run up to my May 2009 big day and couldn’t understand why there wasn’t anything similar for us (equally as style savvy and creative) British brides.
Almost two years ago we shared the news that we had recently agreed investment for this seemingly small-ish on-line wedding adventure.
I think we can safely say that Rock My Wedding is not in any way smallish, it is rather um…..big.
Our readership continues to grow year on year, every day we have new and beautiful ideas, images and stories to share and our amazing community (that’ll be you lovely lot then) never fail to amaze us with your enthusiasm and creativity.
We never EVER have a dull day in the office. It’s stressful at times admittedly but at least it’s never boring, not a single day is ever the same and I have yet to wake up in the morning and think “Oh no, I’ve got to go to work….”
I know. I am very very lucky. And I never take any of it for granted. Once we’ve started one project we are already planning the next, sometimes even the one after that. To stay on top you’ve got to constantly be innovating, engaging your audience and improving your existing services. I’d say that was true for any business in any industry.
So, which camp are you in when it comes to making New Years Resolutions? Are you with the ‘why wait until tomorrow when you can start today’ pro-active peeps or do you like to set a goal? A date to get something started?
Here at RMW towers, we like goals..and we think we’re pretty good at reaching them so we’ve set ourselves some resolutions for 2014…
