This afternoon we’re gathering together our girls, grabbing our most floaty bohemian frocks and running off into the forest for fun and frivolity in a tent.
And on a giant mint-green double decker bus, obvs.
Don’t worry – there will be cake. Lots of cake. And gorgeous flowers spilling out of mismatched vases. You can even crimp your hair if you want…and I’m afraid smokey eyes, floral crowns and feathers in you hair are absolutely compulsory
This shoot from Jasmine Orchard and Sarah London was all about creating a free spirited festival style set up and I think the ladies have got it completely bang on…it’ll definitely have you reminiscing over your favourite Summer memories!
Well then, where to begin?
I admire any bride and groom that really put their heart and soul into sourcing unique decor pieces and styling up W-day exactly how they want. Emma and Ant had some simple yet super pretty ideas from huge sheets of draping lace to hanging lampshades over tables and a family made dessert table displayed on old wooden crates. Finding such treasures in charity shops and via ebay means a gorgeous mismatch of unique personalisation on a budget – genius.
The portraits of the couple are absolutely beautiful, blue skies and rolling hills making the perfect backdrop. I couldn’t choose which ones to feature so I basically just selected them all for your Tuesday pleasure.
I’ve been looking forward to blogging Daisy and Jon’s wedding for a very long time…
When photographer Lucy Turnbull showed me the images from their Bristol ceremony – I just knew their three day wedding extravaganza would be seriously fun…it’s just exactly how I want my wedding to be – relaxed, full of fun and as looooong as possible!!
It began with Daisy and Jon looking fabulous for an intimate ceremony at the registry office in Bristol, followed by a boat trip and a delicious looking dinner at The Olive Shed.
The next day, family and friends gathered at Daisy’s Mum’s house for a huge party in a Yurt – filled with colourful fabrics, candle light and all sorts of wonderful decor. And for the Sunday – a hog roast and a football match were the order of the day.
I’m going to pass you over to Daisy, as she has written (by her own admission) a dissertation on her wedding…
So grab a cup of tea, settle down and enjoy the beautiful photography from Lucy and the infectiously fun words from Daisy.
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.
