Gatsby Glam In The Derbyshire Dales.


karenandmatt Gatsby Glam In The Derbyshire Dales.


The flowers in today’s wedding are so, so, so pretty. Every time Karen’s bouquet sneaks into shot, it just looks divine. If I was her, I don’t think I’d have let it go all day. AND the coral roses used are called Little Miss Piggy. Isn’t that the best name ever?

I also love Karen’s choice of the brightly coloured Bridesmaid gowns – her girls look ravishing and they makes the perfect contrast to the natural surroundings of the venue, Shottle Hall, in the rolling Derbyshire countryside.

The images come from Kathryn Edwards, who Karen found via our very own Love Lust List.

There are so many fun shots of the wedding party – anyone looking for something different for their group shots should take note. Matt and his gangster Groomsmen, and Karen and her glamorous girlies, all look like they are having so much fun and it’s the perfect tone for their Great Gatsby inspired day.

An Intimate Wedding In Argentina.


ashandtom An Intimate Wedding In Argentina.


Today we’re heading to Argentina to bring International Week to a close. We’ve had some BEAUTIFUL weddings for you to swoon over and this one is just as fabulous.

Ashleigh is English and Tom is Australian – they opted for an Argentinian wedding so that everyone would have to travel – not just one family. Despite the costs of the flights, this actually meant that they could keep expenditure down, by having a small but perfectly formed day.

AND they all had a lovely holiday in Argentina too. Which I think is probably the best reason for having a destination wedding!

I love the simplicity of their day – the beauty of the venue and the surroundings really shine through. Ashleigh’s Charlie Brear gown is perfect too, it looks so elegant and creates a gorgeous shape on her, but she also looks comfortable and happy – which is hugely important when you are getting married at 35 degrees!

The beautiful images are courtesy of Kristian Leven who has done a fabulous job of capturing almost every emotion to pass across the Bride & Groom’s faces. Just look at that cover image…it’s as if the world has stopped for Ashleigh & Tom.

Enjoy this escape to Argentina and have a lovely Easter weekend full of family, friends and chocolate! We’ll be back on Monday with lots more wedding inspiration on UK turf.

An Elegant Supper In The Italian Mountains.


tamraandsimon An Elegant Supper In The Italian Mountains.


Yesterday we took you to Maine in the US…today we are heading to the region of Piedmont in Italy. More specifically, the ancient town of Alba.

Alba is a gastronomic gem and is also famous for wine production. So it was the perfect location for the wedding of self-proclaimed foodie couple, Tamra and Simon, who both work in the wine industry.

Their wedding is one of pure class. Every detail screams elegance, from Tamra’s slinky Jenny Packham gown, to Simon’s Tom Ford suit, to the crisp linen, the crystal glasses and the choice of simple white roses for the centre pieces…it really is the epitome of wedding chic. And I know I say it often, but for me – simple is always better.

The location and gorgeous sunshine will have you pining for a cold glass of dry white wine while basking in the Mediterranean sun.

The images come from RMW regulars, M&J Photography who are lucky (and talented) enough to shoot some absolutely incredible weddings. I know you’re all going to love this one…and I can think of a few of our RMW Real Brides who I know will love it too…

This morning we are off to Maine, USA. It’s no exaggeration when I say that this wedding took my breath away. The incredible natural scenery, the use of light, the feeling of warmth that radiates from the family images…

Tania & Christopher’s wedding is absolutely beautiful. They married at Tania’s family home, surrounded by the sea and by people they love. The images from Rebekah J Murray are exquisite.

Tania has some wonderful words of advice about embracing imperfection too. It’s definitely something we all need to remember from time-to-time.

Fish And Chips On The Sunny Sand Dunes.


Cover Image2 Fish And Chips On The Sunny Sand Dunes.


Oh I do like to be beside the seaside and Joss and David’s easy breezy beachside big day is divine. Honestly it is the British coast at its very best complete with fish and chips and ice-cream.

But before you run ahead thinking all about bare feet and sea shells and bohemian charm, let me stop you in your tracks. Because you see there are kilts and maids in sequin dresses and chic white bouquets and the most beautiful bride in the aptly named ‘Captivating’ Suzanne Neville gown. Not necessarily what you’d think of when you hear beachside wedding eh?

But it so works and if the photos of Joss and David frolicking amongst the Camber Sands sand dunes are anything to go by then I think it’s safe to say that they agree too.

I’ll bet my bottom dollar you’re going to love this ‘I Do’.

The Prettiest Of Palettes.


julesandtim The Prettiest Of Palettes.


As a true girly girl at heart – I adore this morning’s wedding. The colour palette of blush pink with dusky green and golden hues is beautiful. Bride Jules out did herself in achieving the soft and romantic look she was aiming for.

Just wait until you see the dreamy dessert table piled high with macarons, the elegant floral centre pieces and the wedding party in their pretty pastel coloured dresses.

Jules’ gown is stunning too, a strapless number with ruffled layers of lace. This Bride was lucky enough to find ‘the one’ and I can completely understand why this dress made her cry.

Today’s images come from the lovely Razia N Jukes, who has captured Jules and Tim’s day beautifully. For each image, the tone is just right. Anticipation, fun, laughter, love and joy are all clear to see.

Personally, I think it’s probably the best way to start to the week…and I really hope you’ll agree.
