Holly and Tom had such an incredible day at Upwaltham Barns that it has left me feeling somewhat alliterative. Divine dress, fabulous florals, beautiful blossom, delicious details and scores of smiles, that pretty much sums it up perfectly!
Tom & Holly live in Australia so their wedding allowed them to catch up with lots of friends and family from back home, it was a fun celebration with a cool laid back vibe.
You know when a bouquet makes you go “Wow”…? that. The flowers at Ed and Laura’s wedding were seriously special, country garden meets rustic whimsy. Laura’s gown suits her perfectly and I couldn’t have picked more beautiful bridesmaids dresses to compliment, her best girls were VERY lucky indeed. Peachy lace perfection that they can wear time and time again.
The account of the ceremony details is particularly worth a read, so much time and effort is spent on choosing fashion, florals and decor yet I often hear how this was most couples favourite part of the day.
Emmie and Geoff’s pretty pastel wedding had me swooning from the very first image. It’s just bursting with gorgeous details and wonderful ideas that you could definitely recreate yourselves.
The baby pink and blue tin cans used as table centre pieces, the photo frame table plan, the chalkboard sign welcoming guests and the wooden signs directing guests to ceremony were all made by Emmie and Geoff, and their wonderful family and friends.
I think it’s fair to say that at RMW we LOVE shoes and Emmie’s something-blue pair are seriously gorgeous. Her lace, deep V backed gown is stunning too and continues the pretty colour scheme with that beautiful dusky pink bow.
Honestly, I’ll never tire of satin ribbon tied up in a bow.
If you’re inspired to recreate any of Emmie and Geoff’s ideas, then don’t worry – Emmie explains how she did it all below. (And if anyone makes a flying saucer or marshmallow tree – please make an extra to send to RMW HQ).
And if you’re feeling creative don’t forget all of our DIY projects can be found here.
Let’s start the day with a little list shall we… bohemian bride, tweed suited groom, Brighton ceremony, handmade pizza, ice cream, dancing on tables (for money). Do you need any more reasons to get excited about Joel and Cara’s big day?
Thought not, read on folks…
Whatever you are doing this Tuesday afternoon – you need to stop for 10 minutes and have a look at this divine inspiration shoot.
The bridal pretty comes courtesy of Miss Gen Photography and it literally has us weak at the knees…the bed-head hair, the just-been-kissed red lips, the soft drape of georgette and the voluptuousness of satin, gauzy veils edged with vintage lace, delicate and ornate wax headpieces…honestly, I’m bursting with excitement for you to see it!
The shoot draws inspiration from fairytales – two fair maidens trapped in a tower, waiting to be rescued by their true loves. And like any good fairy tale heroines, these two are in elegant gowns, with bespoke accessories and surrounded by bountiful blooms.
Exactly how I’d like to be on my wedding day!
As the title suggests, this is a truly sophisticated affair. Sarah’s Jesus Peiro gown is to die for; simple and elegant yet with the modern twist of pockets. Yes pockets. I love them.
Choosing a venue which was essentially a complete blank canvas meant that Sarah and David could really make it their own and my what a super job they did of making a barn both rustic and romantic. Think white drapes, soft lantern lighting and the prettiest flowers displayed in tin cans.
You lovelies REALLY must check out the bouquets too – unique and ridiculously beautiful.
Weddings by the sea are my absolute favourite, so I’m in love with today’s gorgeous cliff top wedding from Dorset.
Heidi and Peter chose to hold their ceremony outdoors, a brave move with our temperamental weather…but it definitely paid off, as it meant that they could marry underneath an impressive green oak arch handcrafted by lovely Groom Peter, surrounded by pine trees and with a breath taking, uninterrupted view of the sea.
The whole wedding is full of natural and rustic details, from the seasonal handpicked blooms, to the cedar shingle bunting – unfussy, relaxed, but ever so pretty. Perfect for a venue which is surrounded by wonderful nature.
Heidi and Peter have written their wedding report together and it’s lovely to hear from a Groom who had so much input into the big day.
Hayley’s Temperley dress, an evening gown not from their wedding range looks amazing and was the perfect choice. As was Buckland House, a sprawling country manor set in 280 acres of grounds. What a stunning backdrop to this simple contemporary wedding with enough home made ideas to satisfy even the the most DIY driven bride to be. So all there is left to do is fetch tea, sit back, relax and devour these beautiful images from Especially Amy
Ross and Nik’s big day at Stone Barn is a real sweet treat of a wedding for you lovelies this morning. Bursting at the seams with elegance and thoughtful details I’m positive that you’re going to love this modern “I Do” with its neutral colour scheme amidst splashes of polka dots.
I’m not sure that I’ve seen a bride who is A) smiles as much as Nik does and B) carries off a fringe with such aplomb but she does both in spades. And that’s not the only thing she does so well.
You see Nik and Ross have quite clearly poured all their hearts and emotion into the styling and planning of this big day and they’ve definitely pulled it off. From the silver framed photos of loved parents and grandparents on their own wedding days, to the table numbers and wedding signage I’ve fallen more than a little bit for this delicious wedding.
I think you might too…
when Lolly told me about this wedding… A groom called Adam wearing tweed and brogues I started to wonder if this might be a wedding delivered through time from the future and that I was, just like Marty McFly in Back To The Future 2, interacting with an older version of my own self… That’ll teach me to drink Gin before noon.
Anna and Adam had a beautiful unique wedding full of quirky, hand made details. The wedding took place at Dorset House in Bury, West Sussex. Anna looked absolutely stunning in her Maggie Sottero dress with fishtail plait. This wedding was captured beautifully digitally and in film by Camilla Arnhold.
