Love And Brights In Liverpool



Cover Image6 Love And Brights In Liverpool


Well then, isn’t this a sophisticated and modern wedding and a half. Amy and Andy make the perfect city chic couple, all sleek silhouettes and colour pop brights. The concert room at St Georges Hall which held the ceremony is absolutely breathtaking, so grand and opulent.

The flowers! must mention – absolutely AMAZE, I want them in my house. Now please if at all possible. You’ve also got to love a bride who takes inspiration from our very own DIY projects, this big day is elegant in its simplicity but that’s not to say you can’t involve a little craft to make things personal and unique.

Did I mention the bouquet?

Rustic Vintage Prettiness In Stow On The Wold.


alannaanddane Rustic Vintage Prettiness In Stow On The Wold.


If you love rustic, pretty weddings full of covetable details – then you are going to love this morning’s wedding. Alanna and Dane chose to marry in the Cotswolds and held their reception at the idyllic Hyde Barn.

They went with a beautiful pastel pink, pale green and ivory colour scheme. The pair handcrafted the majority of the rustic details for their big day and it was clearly worth it – everything just looks so perfectly presented.

Alanna’s girls wore pale pink gowns by RMW favourites, twobirds. The different styles suit each girl perfectly and add a lovely Grecian elegance to proceedings. Alanna herself looks divine in the lace topped ‘Samantha’ by Sassi Holford. I love her metallic sash too.

It would also seem that the naked cake trend isn’t going anywhere. And quite frankly we hope it stays forever! Anything that looks that delicious is fine by us and I know today’s example will have you wanting cake for breakfast…

A Fairy Tale Castle Wedding.


emmaandkevin A Fairy Tale Castle Wedding.


I don’t think I can think of a more perfect wedding for a Friday. This pretty big day is set in a fairytale castle, with a fuchsia pink and Cadbury purple colour scheme, lots of pretty card butterfly details and is literally brimming with smiley, happy people.

I promise, it will put a smile on your face.

Emma and Kevin held their wedding at the magnificent Berkeley Castle, parts of which date from the 12th Century. Just imagine all of past hearts that have been won in such a place!! The castle just looks so atmospheric and grand in the images from Joseph Hall.

I suppose if you get married in a castle – then a Princess dress is definitely called for…Emma’s choice of Chardonnay by Maggie Soterro is perfect and looks absolutely beautiful on her.

So, if you’re sitting comfortably, then we’ll begin. Once upon a time there was a girl named Emma…

Danielle & Scott: The London Lovers.


danielleandscott Danielle & Scott: The London Lovers.


Hi friends! It feels like an age since my last post, but I have so enjoyed reading my fellow RMW real brides stories over the last month. They are such a lovely lot & I’m so looking forward to the next year with them! Today I’d like to share with you the ideas behind our wedding day, with a little bit of back story to help you understand why it’s going to be so perfect for us.

Ever since we got engaged back in November, Scott & I have been discussing what our ideal wedding day would involve. Our biggest decision, Scotland or England, had been tackled and decided on very early on. Ever since moving almost 3 years ago, I’ve been fully in love with this city. Actually though, I loved it long before I lived here, I’ve known it for many years.

When I was a little girl, my favourite person in the world, my aunty Gwen, lived here, so I visited often and it was always a magical, vibrant, full-of-life city to me. I used to tell my family that one day I would live here. Life normally tends to catch up on childhood dreams for most people (I still can’t believe I’m not the next Francine Pascal, aka the greatest author in the world known for Sweet Valley Kids/Twins/High/University!) but fate obviously had other ideas for me, so even though I thought I was settled in Edinburgh for good, I suddenly found myself moving to London and living out my childhood dreams at (the grand-old-past-it age of) 25.… View the full post.

She Said ‘I Do’ In Her Choos.


Laura Michael She Said I Do In Her Choos.


Oh ho ho! We’ve got a corker of a big day to share with you this morning lovely people. Yep we have Choos and a pretty Rose bouquet and vintage cars and mint bridesmaid dresses and floral arches galore for you to pin and gawp over.

Laura and Michael married in Whittlebury and then decamped to a private field where they partied until dawn amongst reams of bunting, a pink bicycle and a beehive table plan. Yep an actual beehive table plan; it’s most definitely the first time I’ve heard of such a novelty and hopefully not the last because it’s pretty darn awesome!

Laura it’s over to you!

A Terrific Tuscan Adventure.


Sarah And James A Terrific Tuscan Adventure.


You’ve probably already guessed from the title of this post that this afternoon’s wedding takes place in Italy; in Goriolo, Tuscany to be precise. And folks it’s a romantic, dreamy affair suffused with elegance and grace and a dollop of vintage too.

Bride Sarah is a bit of a vintage aficionado who adores the fashion and spirit of the ‘20s era and her exquisite Charlie Brear frock perfectly compliments the look and feel of this wonderful ‘I Do’. It’s clear that James – the groom – is head over heels for her when looking at their picturesque portrait shots.

I have to say that I also particularly love the groomsmen’ bright pink accessories – so fun!

To Thine Own Self be True.

Rock My Wedding readers Carly & Simon both love the arts, particularly music and theatre. They reflected their shared passions with a Shakespeare themed wedding in old London town.

With a Justin Alexander gown, maids in Jenny Packham for Debenhams and photography by Dominique Bader this vintage inspired wedding is as beautiful as one of Will’s sonnets. I love the fact that Carly and Simon got up on stage to contribute a few lines in a play performed for their guests at the reception, check it out!

A New Beginning.


anewbeginning A New Beginning.


The first signs of Spring are something that I look forward to every year – so I was always going to love this inspiration shoot from Coco Venues and Katrina Otter Weddings, inspired by early, fresh Spring days.

I just know you’re all going to fall head-over-heels for it too – gorgeous boho-yet-sexy Rue de Seine gowns, gold Isabelle Row accessories, refreshing white blooms and some oh-so pretty hair and make up looks to swoon over.

Right, I’ll stop waffling and let you enjoy the pretty – pin fingers at the ready…

The Joys Of Spring


Cover Image4 The Joys Of Spring


Well this is just lovely. Rachel looks so elegant in her fishtail lace gown and the spring blooms are to die for, I love the mix of orange and yellow tulips in particular. You’ve also got to hand it to a bride who can’t resist a bargain, dedicating her budget to the things that matter and making clever savings in areas that are less important.

Did I mention this is one of the greatest table plans I have seen in a long time? such a fun film theme – and so well put together. The cake also deserves a mention, simple yet sophisticated and ties in beautifully with the rustic decor and feminine colour scheme.

Enjoy lovelies!

Rustic Elegance Amongst The Apple Trees.


vicciandjamie Rustic Elegance Amongst The Apple Trees.


This morning we’re in Somerset for a rustic, yet elegant farm wedding. Rustic because of the glorious English countryside and outdoor ceremony on hay bales. Elegant because of the simple white decor and statement Oscar de la Renta gown.

Vicci and Jamie live in San Francisco and work for a top design agency, so they were always going to have a visually striking wedding. I love the red colour pop of the boys braces, the fun and completely personal stationery and the prettiness of the white lanterns hanging in the apple trees.

The lovely pair have a wonderful engagement story too, which I’ll let Vicci tell you all about…
