The Beauty Of The Ocean.


taniaandchris The Beauty Of The Ocean.


Welcome to International Week on RMW – yes, that’s right – we’re going global! This week we’re treating you to some of the most beautiful, elegant and fun weddings IN THE WORLD. In fact, I’d go as far to say that this week you’ll see some of the prettiest weddings EVER to hit RMW.

And it’s all because our Love Lust List, our handpicked directory of wedding suppliers, has gone international!

If you haven’t already found our Love Lust List – then where have you been?! It’s the place to go to find suppliers who we think are great and who will help you create the wedding of your dreams.

And now, we are helping you find great suppliers from all over the world!

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.

Around The Bonfire.


daisyandsally Around The Bonfire.


I love bonfires. I also love farms. And I also really, really love Cornwall. So when I opened the file of images for today’s wedding – I was one happy girl.

Daisy and Sally married at Sally’s parents farm, Roselidden, where they had free reign to do whatever they wanted. This resulted in a hog roast, a giant bonfire, festoon lighting and some really cool wellies.

The lovely pair met at Art College in Falmouth and their creative backgrounds are definitely reflected in their wedding day. I love the continued use of the ampersand symbol – the enormous ampersand circus lamp made by Daisy’s Dad is particularly striking.

The day was rounded off with a massive bonfire, lots of West Country cider and round-after-round of marshmallow toasting. Which sounds pretty perfect to me. There is something very spiritual and ritualistic about a fire.

Daisy and Sally’s day looks like a magical occasion that was filled with love. It’s a beautiful wedding lovelies and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

A Once In A Lifetime Love.


lisaandcraig A Once In A Lifetime Love.


We’re rounding off the week with a rustic DIY wedding that I just know you’re going to love.

Lisa chose to have dried flowers, as opposed to fresh ones. I must admit I wasn’t sure about this until I saw these beautiful images…

But now, I’m sold on dried flowers. Lisa’s flower headpiece is so pretty and looks very country maid-esque in her long blonde tousled hair. Add to that the delicate bouquet and urn full of dried flowers and there you have it. I’m a dried flower convert.

It’s probably because they look so delicate, but wild and bohemian at the same time. And not only that, but they make an amazing, long lasting keepsake from your day.

I should also probably tell you that I really struggled, and I mean really struggled, to chose the final images for todays post. Jake Morley has captured the day in such a way that every image makes you smile.

A French Forest Fairytale.

This afternoon we’re venturing into wedding fantasy land. French wedding fantasy land to be precise. Which is definitely a wonderful place to be.

This dreamy inspiration shoot comes from the lovely Louise at B.Loved who always sends us the prettiest, most romantic inspiration features.

Think blowsy roses, lashings of sage green foliage, delicate hearted shaped macarons, tiny gold forest animals and the most beautiful, unashamedly feminine Johanna Hehir gowns.

And if you loved the photography from this mornings wedding, then you’ll be pleased to know that this shoot was captured by the same photographer. Yes, Anneli Marinovich really is a super star.

Enjoy the pretty lovely ones.

The Modern Love Letter.


emmaandmark The Modern Love Letter.


You may remember this gorgeous pair from their rather special engagement shoot. If you missed it, please go and have a read – their story is such a lovely one & Emma’s words about her love for Mark are so heartfelt and moving.

‘We were so entwined that I knew I’d found my forever.’ I’m sure that’s a feeling which will resonate with all of you.

So it really is lovely to be able to share their wedding too…and believe me when I say Emma & Mark’s wedding is beautiful.

The flowers are out of this world. The Bridesmaids are sporting the most magnificent floral crowns I’ve ever seen and Emma’s bouquet is divine – oversized and full of beautiful roses and foliage. An excellent job done by Angel Like Flowers.

There is also some fabulous fashion to lust over – I’m loving Emma’s sequinned Malene Birger jacket for the evening and her Gillian Million headpiece is so pretty.

And as if the images from Horseshoe Photography weren’t enough, the wedding highlights film from MY FILM is a wonderful sneak peak into Emma & Mark’s big day.

Are you sitting comfortably? Then we’ll begin…

I Wanna Hold Your Hand.


jillandpete I Wanna Hold Your Hand.


One of the most lovely things about looking at wedding photography on a daily basis is that it makes you incredibly happy.

Seriously, there are moments EVERYDAY where an image makes me grin from ear-to-ear, or brings tears of joy to my eyes. As soppy as that sounds, it really is true.

And that’s before I’ve even read the lovely write up from one of our Brides…

Jill and Pete’s wedding is one of THE most joyous weddings I’ve come across. It is brimming with positivity and it brings me great pleasure to share it with you lovely lot this Friday afternoon.

And if Jill’s seriously pretty hair and the wonderful multi coloured decor aren’t enough to make your heart sing…wait until you see the images of the moment her Dad serenaded the guests with an acoustic guitar. Have a lovely weekend!
