A Pretty Pastel Tea Party.

emmieandgeoff A Pretty Pastel Tea Party.

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.

The Sleeping Beauty Bride.

fairytale The Sleeping Beauty Bride.

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!

Sophistication In Suffolk.

Cover Image1 Sophistication In Suffolk.

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.

The Great Outdoors.

heidiandpeter The Great Outdoors.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.

A DIY wedding at Buckland House

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

Polka Dots And Navy At Stone Barn.

Nik Ross Polka Dots And Navy At Stone Barn.

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…

Fifty Shades Of Grey

Cover Image9 Fifty Shades Of Grey
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.

Hand Made In The Peak District

Cover Image8 Hand Made In The Peak District

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.

One Jolly Scottish Wedding.

sarahandangus One Jolly Scottish Wedding.

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…
