If you haven’t noticed already we have a great new sponsor - Prezola.
Not only do Prezola offer a one-stop-shop for all of your wedding gift list dreams (choose from 100′s of your favourite stores in one convenient and efficient transaction) but they also gave me a very generous budget to “Go Christmas shopping.”
Essentially I had to choose some lovely pieces for the home (and I mean accessories that I REALLY want) and Prezola are going to give away every single item to one lucky reader.
Yep. YOU get to win my festive wish list lovelies.
Have a butchers at my choices below (you can click on the images to take you to the products on line with more detail) and then read on for your chance to have all of these under your tree by the end of next week. Yep – when we said for Christmas we meant it!
Clockwise from top left:
This is my favourite home scent – The White Company Pomegranate. Everyone always comments how lush my living room smells and it’s thanks to this slightly masculine sexy fragrance. You can win this gift set complete with room fragrance, candle and incense stick doo-dahs.
Perhaps this is showing my age (!) but I desperately want a hamper, this Organic Company hamper from Not On The Highstreet is full to bursting with delicious treats and would be perfect for a wintery outdoor picnic (wrap up warm!) or an indoor romantic type of event.… View the full post.
Excuse me if you think I’m a tad rude. I haven’t made an appearance on Rock My Wedding for a while and then all of a sudden I’m asking you to flash your legs… and in this weather too!
Not only is it starting to look a lot like Christmas, it’s also starting to feel a lot like winter and so we’re looking to the chilliest season of the year to provide the theme for our contest.
It’s very easy to enter; all that we ask you to do is to follow RMW on Pinterest and then create your own board called ‘Rock My Winter Wedding‘.
Then it’s time to cram your board to the brim with fabulous winter wedding inspiration. You can pin from absolutely anywhere that takes your fancy but we do request that you pin at least one image from the Rock My Wedding archives. Don’t forget to add the hashtag #rockmywinterwedding and mention @rockmywedding in your pins.
The prize on offer is to join Team RMW as a guest pinner where you’ll get the opportunity to pin to your heart’s content on a subject of your choosing (within reason, of course. This is a family website after all…)
Anyone can enter the competition so don’t worry if you’re getting married in the warmer months. This is a chance for you to let your imagination run wild and embrace all that the season has to offer; sumptuous faux furs, glimmering candle light, roaring fires, bouquets of berries and showers of snow.… View the full post.
I am beside myself with glee this afternoon because I can AT LAST share the glorious and final piece of Rock My Wedding editorial of 2013 – The Fall.
If you stopped by the blog on Monday then you’ll have read my post on the inspiration for this Autumn inspired extravaganza.
You’ll know then that we wanted subtle romance, ethereal glamour and natural beauty inspired by Mother Nature herself. Autumnal light is sublime and we were determined to capture this softness and showcase the most stylish gowns and prettiest table settings against it for your viewing pleasure.
So we set about plotting to convince you lovely lot of the tantalising charms of windswept hair, rich colour palettes, Autumn berries and buttersoft blankets against a backdrop of lemon yellow and ruby red leaves.
We scoured the land for the most perfect location and landed upon a beautiful private estate filled with nooks and crannies aplenty. There were woods and fields full of ponies, rustic barns made from weathered oak and old outhouses with handcrafted beams. And I haven’t even begun to mention the lamppost or the redbrick stables…
With so many different ‘scenes’ at our disposal it made sense to devote each set-up to a particular gown. For foxy frockage we worked with two designers that know exactly how to cater for the petite bride – the focus for this particular piece of editorial. Alan Hannah and Charlotte Balbier provided beautiful lace, tulle and slinky embroidered dresses designed with the shorter bride in mind which we paired up with two beauty looks that I’ll describe in more detail shortly…
And who were we going to use to capture our rustic romantic adventure?… View the full post.
There’s something about Autumn that stirs up a kind of yearning wistfulness in me. I’m not sure if it’s the distant memory of going back to school after a dusty summer – all new shoes and sharpened pencils and beribboned plaits – or whether it’s because the boy and I began our love affair during the departing days of summer and the colourful explosion of falling leaves.
Oh to be young again…
If I was asked to pick then I think I’d say that Autumn was my favourite season of all.
Perhaps this is why Charlotte handed the reins over to me on this particular piece of editorial and gave me full artistic direction. Oh the pressure!
It would be our last piece of editorial for 2013 and it had to be spellbinding.
Of all of our pieces of editorial that we’ve styled this year, ‘The Fall’, as we’ve so aptly named was quite easily the one I was most looking forward to. And as much as you’re not supposed to have favourites, I do…and this one has stolen my heart. I can’t wait to show you the final results later this week.
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 later this week.

After September’s insane schedule we thought that October might be y’know, a little less manic.
Ha ha! AS. IF.
There were just as many beautiful weddings to share, exciting new projects for Team RMW to progress with, various shoots to organise and a whole bunch of meetings to attend.
As you may have have seen in our last monthly round up post, we are currently designing an entirely new Rock My blog. At the moment it’s all a bit of a secret but we’re going to be giving you some sneak peeks over the coming months, and if you sign up to the mailing list above you can be the first to know exactly what it is we’re up to before everyone else.
We also have an announcement on Rock My Wedding Tuesday afternoon – so keep your eyes peeled!

As part of our imminent expansion we also require new offices. And in direct contrast to our last urban city dwelling this time we’re moving TO THE COUNTRY. Think converted farm. Think very old mixed with an eclectic selection of the new.
We’ll be taking you lot along for the ride of course so you can see all of our interior styling ideas and DIY projects for the brand spanking new RMW HQ!

Lolly La Pop was given full artistic direction of our latest editorial which made perfect sense as it was styled around her favourite season of all – Autumn.… View the full post.
At RMW HQ September will always be remembered as a month of “beautiful chaos”. It was like being aboard a high speed train of pretty.
We shot our most ambitious editorial yet on the beaches of Camber Sands, it was windy, it rained, we built our very own canopy out of bamboo and Ikea curtains (!) and I think it nearly sent Adam over the edge…(literally, there were some ladder moments there where we all thought he might come toppling down onto the dunes.)
All the hard work was worth it though, the images have more than exceeded our expectations and we think you gorgeous lot are going to love it.
“I believe in Mermaids” – coming to RMW from Monday.
Last week we were invited to London to collect our Perfect Wedding award for “Best Wedding Blog 2013″, this is the second year in a row we’ve been presented with this award and we are forever grateful (and humbled) to receive such an accolade. The awards are voted for by the readers of the magazine which is the most important aspect for us, it is after all you, our loyal community, which enables us to continue with our dream careers.
On Monday we released our much anticipated Fashion Pack, have you had a nose around yet? we know thousands of you have, we’ve been monitoring the stats and you lovelies have been looking at everything!
We hope you find the feature useful, we endeavour to come up with new ways to make your planning journey fun, inspiring and that little bit easier as well as providing innovative exposure options for our sponsors, collaborators and supporters.… View the full post.
