A Chic City Wedding At The Bloomsbury Ballroom.

sarah tim

Simple yet chic is how I would describe Sarah and Tim’s elegant London wedding. And with a venue as beautiful as The Bloomsbury Ballroom – I can see exactly why the pair kept things low key decor wise.

White roses, giant round bubbles of gypsophila and candles were all it needed to make the venue look beautiful.

Sarah is a girl after my own heart with two gowns, as well as a simple gypsophila circlet for the reception. I love the addition of a grey sash on her gown too, it compliments her lovely grey suede Emmy shoes perfectly.

I also love the amount of stunning couple shots that Eddie Judd has captured – Sarah and Tim are clearly a couple who make each other laugh, their love and chemistry really shines in these images, as you’ll see.

Sunshine Yellow After The Winter.


It’s been far too long since we shared a sunshiny yellow Spring wedding with you but never fear Cheryl and Matt are here to save the day with their awesomely bright wedding this morning.

And it is AWESOME. Completely and utterly take-your-breath-away awesome. I for one LOVE it…can you tell?

Captured by the uber talented Mister Phill, this ‘I Do’ has inspiration by the bucketload for you. And before you disappear off to start your pinning marathon, I really need to share some of the best things about this wedding if that’s even possible.

Can we all just take a minute to appreciate Cheryl’s totally bargainous dress that she scored from eBay for the grand total of £39. She looks like a veritable real life Swan Lake prima ballerina flanked by beautiful girls in yellow and an exquisite Tulip and Daffodil bouquet (one of my favourites of 2014 I’ll have you know!)

And then there’s all the paper pretty (such brilliant branding) and the chocolate Easter inspired wedding cake (just genius) and the Musical Bingo. Yes ACTUAL musical bingo. I think I just died and went to heaven.

Well what are you waiting for? Go forth and admire the pretty…

A Rich Tapestry Of Italian Memories.


Natalie and Duncan are super stylish, I mean you can tell this is the case as soon as you start reading Natalie’s wonderful description of her wedding day below. And any man that accessorises a splendid navy Italian jacket with a crisp white shirt and a very strong gin and tonic for the woman in his life (as Duncan did when he first met Natalie) is a winner in my book.

And where would a super stylish couple such as this pair choose to host their big day, why in Italy of course, set against the backdrop of olive trees, deliciously fresh white linen and a sprinkling of lavender.

Heaven! Let’s take a look!

Lucy & Danny

We’ve already met Lucy & Danny once before… We featured their engagement shoot back in June this year, you can catch up on all the details here. So how do you follow such a romantic engagement (involving a serious amount of kissing underneath a Cherry blossom tree)?

Well… with this!

I Should Be So Lucky.


This is the ridiculously beautiful wedding of Nicola and Jack. You will more than likely recognise Nicola as she was one of our 2014 real brides – her writing style is aces, as is her taste in venues. The French Chateau setting is the stuff made of dreams, as are the white on white florals with a smidgen of glitter and twinkle.

This is timeless glamour at its very finest, soft feminine decor touches combined with a selection of sartorial triumphs. It’s probably a big no no to admit you are jealous of someone else’s wedding but I’m going to come right out and say it – I am.

Nicola’s report is LONG, there’s no denying it but it’s well worth a read folks, perhaps gawp at the lush imagery and then come back later for proper sit down?

I expect muchos pinning action to be occurring this morning, I know we will be!

A Pretty Pub Wedding With A Picnic.


If there was ever a perfect wedding to cure the Monday morning blues – Lorna and Will’s big day would definitely be it.

Honestly, by the time you’ve finished looking at the lovely images from David Long and read the report from Lorna, you’ll be smiling.

The brightly coloured details are perfect for a Summer marquee wedding – retro children’s party balloons, multicoloured pinwheels, floral garlands and an abundance of blooms create such a happy atmosphere. I also particularly love the table plan made from a sunshine yellow vintage door.

Lorna looks beautiful in a printed dress from Beyond Retro – we do like it when ‘the one’ is something unusual and a bit different.

How The Cool Kids Get Married.


I’m not sure you get actually get much cooler than Millie and Christopher’s East End nuptials…

The pair began proceedings with a three week road trip around California – which included a stop at Coachella Festival (ALWAYS the most hip and stylish looking of all of the festivals).

They had planned a Las Vegas wedding, but Santa Barbra captured their hearts and so they married at the Court House there instead. On their return to the UK, the pair held an intimate and laid back reception in London for their closest friends and family.

A beautiful giant heart shaped wreathe, sparkling with fairy lights and adorned with tiny flowers brings a gorgeous sense of cosiness to the white walls and parquet floor of their venue, St John Bread & Wine. Where guests were served traditional British fare at long wooden tables, surrounded by candles and tulips.

Peonies And Pearls At Babington House.


Sam and Luke seriously know the meaning of the words ‘class’ and ‘elegance’ because their big day has it in spades. You’ll see what I mean when you take a look at the images below…

It helps that this pair are ridiculously good looking, like a pair of Hollywood film stars just destined to be together. But it’s clear that the pair are completed besotted with one another which makes me smile from ear to ear.

There’s so many things I love about this big day – from Sam’s voluminous white peony bouquet and sleek and sophisticated Caroline Castigliano gown to the sage green bridesmaid dresses and off-white table centrepieces. Oh and they got married at Babington House too which always looks sublime whatever the season.

I have a feeling that you folks will like this ‘I Do’ as much as I do.

The Perfect Romantic Italian Garden Dinner Party.


Marcelle and Joe’s wedding is a little bit blinking special. Set amongst the beautiful surroundings of Borgo Santo Pietro in Tuscany, this beautiful twosome partied on down until the dawn began to rise the next day.

For me, this wedding is completely refreshing. Marcelle chose to forgo the traditional wedding dress style in favour of a super sleek and contemporary creation from Tom Ford accessorised only by a glamorous wrist cuff and off-white bouquet. Just wait until you see the architectural back detailing on her frock!

And that’s not the only thing that has me swooning. Ever the enthusiast for well designed table settings, this Tuscan affair has me reaching for the ‘Pin It’ button. There are candles and herbs and rustic table runners and it all works so beautifully yet so cost-effectively too.

And the guests…well if the photos at the end of the night are anything to go by, then it’s clear that they had a darned good time!

More Than Meets The Eye

Faye & Coops both work with Derren Brown, who was also a guest at this wedding. Relaxed, fun and gorgeous pretty much sums up their big day and they also lived by the RMW Mantra of “Your Day Your Way” choosing to do their own thing rather than play by the wedding rules.

Faye and Coops photographer Steve Gerrard is an old friend of Team RMW, when not shooting weddings he can usually be found shooting pop and rock stars so he’s used to rubbing up next to a celebrity or too… But after this wedding Derren Brown mentioned him in a tweet and temporarily crashed his site. Having had a good look through these amazing images I can understand why.
