Beth made HER OWN DRESS. I know, how talented is that?! I wouldn’t even know where to start. Such an elegant and timeless design too, the shape works perfectly with the fresh natural make-up and pretty up-do. I also love how she added a delicate cardigan for evening – a sensible and stylish way to change up your look.
Now then, I must mention the “naked” cake, I have never seen so many layers in all my life, there is enough to feed 500 guests there at least… although if it was my cake I would definitely be taking home a large quantity for myself. Ahem.
Long standing readers of RMW will recognise this morning’s beautiful Bride…
Sarah of ‘One Jolly Girl’ fame is a previous Real Bride competitor and so we’re thrilled to be bringing you her wedding this morning!
You may have seen her work at Real Bride Karen’s wedding (where she made the cake) and you can’t have failed to notice her appreciation for a man in a kilt…I don’t doubt she went weak at the knees when she saw husband Angus on their wedding day!
As I’m sure Angus did when he saw Sarah in her fishtail Justin Alexander number. She looks so beautiful, radiant and happy.
Sarah and Angus outdid themselves with their gorgeous Scottish beach wedding. The Tunnock’s branding style stationery looks amazing, the whole beach ceremony set-up is stunning and of course, Sarah’s wedding cake looks absolutely delicious.
Without further ado, I’ll pass you over to Sarah to tell you all about her and Angus’ big day…
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…
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!
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…
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…
Louisa and Emma held a Burns Supper for their wedding day celebrations. If you’re not aware of what a Burns Supper is, it involves reading poems to a haggis, eating said haggis and drinking lots and lots of scotch. I’m sure that’s the official definition*
Burn’s Night is basically just a proper knees up, in honour of great Scottish Poet, Robert Burns. Scotland has a special place in Louisa and Emma’s hearts, as it’s where they got engaged.
But just because the lovely ladies held a proper party – doesn’t mean they overlooked the pretty details. I’m swooning over the dusky pink and sage green Bridesmaids dresses, the elegant table dressing and the beautiful, beautiful cake.
*Hmmmmm, maybe not so official…
Louise and Oli’s wedding is just so full of summer fun – it’s the perfect wedding to bring you on a Monday morning. There’s a bouncy castle, space hoppers, a candy floss machine AND a Mr Whippy ice cream van!!
It’s a real family affair too…the gorgeous couple held their reception in a tipi at their home and incorporated their little girl’s Christening into their big day as well. Which I think is such a lovely idea.
There are so many pretty decor touches too – I love the chalk board table plan, the flowers in milk churns and the silver candelabras adorned with flowers and elegant ivory candles.
And if you’re looking for sparkly Bridesmaids dress inspiration then Louise’s choice of gown for her girls will definitely give you a touch of the green eyed monsters…
There’s something infinity calming about a blue colour scheme at a wedding especially when it’s set amongst a beautiful countryside setting like that of Ross and Nikki’s big day. The pair spent precious hours carefully folding one thousand origami cranes which they later hung in the marquee as part of their wedding decor. Time well spent in my opinion as the finished result looks fantastic!
Looking at Nikki’s beautiful bridal gown you’d never know that she struggled to find her perfect dress. It’s quite clear that the pleated, floaty light creation she chose from Theia was waiting for her all along.
And her bouquet of creamy peonies and roses? Yep I could bury my nose in that all day long.
Josie and Jonny are just so cute. There are just so many images of the pair looking loved up that it’ll make your heart melt. I particularly love the shot of their feet while they are canoodling in the shed!!
They served guests the most scrumptious high tea I’ve seen for a while too, in the prettiest array of vintage china.
I do love a good teapot and there are some absolute beauties in this wedding.
All of the hanging paper birds and hearts, the jam jar toppers and the little bird place names were made by Josie from pages of books, which creates such a lovely effect.
Josie also put together all of the flowers for the big day and I think you’ll agree she did an excellent job – I love her colourful bouquet, which is finished off perfectly with a mustard yellow ribbon.
