Afternoon folks! And we’re back to earth with a bump after the glorious weekend. Yep it’s Monday but have no fear, we have a whole heap of pretty up our sleeves for you to indulge in this afternoon.
If you stopped by the blog last week then you’ll have seen our Midsummer Night’s Dream inspired extravaganza and this week we’re back with another dose of inspiration for you – namely Peaches And Cream.
Honestly it looks good enough to eat!
Having been shoved to the back of the inspiration cupboard for so long, it’s no secret that Team RMW are huge fans of the peach colour scheme wedding. Perhaps it’s because it’s such a pretty shade or maybe it’s because it’s such an adaptable and flattering hue for all seasons of the year, either way we just can’t get enough of it.
And so as a way of paying homage to the ‘Peach’ wedding, we’ve decided to dedicate this afternoon to it by way of a whole heap of delicious decor, beautiful bouquets and decadent dresses moodboard inspiration.
I hope you like it…
Now I have to be honest here and tell you that green is not my favourite colour. It has just never appealed to me in the same way as gorgeous shades of blue and grey. But having seen this shoot – I have to say that I now see green in a whole new light!!
The sheer number of different shades of green on show here is unbelievable…the vibrant and fresh apple green, the muted and slightly grey sage green, the richness of ivy green and the yellowness of the young budding flowers. All created by nature. Amazing.
I mean just look at that table scape below…it’s like a glimpse into a hidden tropical garden of Eden!
I love the idea behind the shoot too – just because you are getting married in a rustic venue, doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on the glamour!
Every so often I like to share a moodboard or two with you lovelies. In the past these glorious concoctions of delicious images, carefully curated from my favourite blogs and sites, were a far more regular occurrence but I confess I’ve probably been a bit remiss of late in sharing such inspiration with you.
This makes me sad. I have been a bad blogger. But I’m determined to redress the balance over the coming weeks and set about on my mission to inspire and invigorate you beauties once more starting with this Midsummer Night’s Dream affair this afternoon.
This post is a bit of a departure from my usual inspiration posts however. Because I’ll readily admit that as nice as it is to see the most wonderfully composed images slotted perfectly into a neat and tidy moodboard there’s always a part of me that scratches my head and wonders where I’ll be able to source that elegant vase or those calligraphed place names or even that elaborate headdress.
Have you ever felt like that?
The lightening bolt feeling when your eyes land upon the most perfect cushion/desk/pair of sparkly shoes on paper yet you cannot for the life of you find a source for the god damn things and google won’t play ball either.
Well far be it from us to add to your daily frustrations. This post will provide you with a link to each and every item that appears below should you take a shine to one thing or another.… View the full post.
Afternoon folks! And how are you after that damn fine piece of weather yesterday? Rested? Perhaps slightly sunburnt? Or are you feeling slightly despondent with a case of the Monday blues?
Allow me to attempt to cheer you up with another glorious glitzy DIY project for your big day as a way of whiling away the hours until the going home bell rings. It’s probably the easiest D.I.Y project we’ve ever posted on Rock My Wedding…aside from the Glitterific Table Numbers that is.
Hell to the yes! It’s time to get your glitter on!
This lunchtime we are introducing you to Pumpkin Events, an award winning, bespoke venue styling company specialising in design and decoration. Renowned for stylish design, they offer the ultimate transformation for weddings, corporate events, private parties and much more.

Have you ever had one of those days when you feel like writing everything in capitals? Not because you’re angry or because you want to make a point but because you’re EXCITED.
Today is one of those days. Don’t ask me why…
Perhaps it’s because I’m relishing the bright mornings and the longer evenings (yes even on this grey drizzly Monday). Maybe it’s because the plethora of colour pop and heavily fragranced blooms that stretch as far as the eye can see along country lanes and in green front gardens make me very happy indeed. Or actually (and far more realistically) it’s because the long Easter weekend is on its way with its promise of a chocolate overload or two…
What better then than to share a smidgen of inspiration with you dolls this afternoon inspired by Spring lambs, snuffle-nosed bunnies and Easter chicklets in homage to this frankly awesome time of year. Perhaps it will inspire you in your own wedding decor planning or maybe even provide a few ideas on how to style your Easter lunch…
You can’t fail to have noticed that today is Saint Patrick’s Day. Yes the day where we traditionally celebrate all things Irish… leprechauns and Guinness and shamrocks and soda bread and celtic knots and all things green with bucketloads of revelry and a healthy amount of drink.
It seemed only fitting then to pay homage and create a moodboard inspired by…yep you guessed it…all things of the mint and emerald and granny smith apple variety. That’s green in case you hadn’t guessed already…
We have everything you could possibly dream of in order to integrate this invigorating colour into your big day – from racing car green bouquets to beryl coloured maids dresses and mossy hued cakes.
Honestly you can’t go far wrong. What is it they say about the luck of the Irish…?
It’s here. It’s finally arrived. Yes lovelies, I can AT LAST share the ridiculously pretty spring-filled, heart-shaped extravaganza that is ‘Enamoured’ – Rock My Wedding’s first editorial shoot of 2014.
If you stopped by the blog yesterday then you’ll have read my post on the inspiration for this love inspired shoot. You’ll know then that we wanted a girly feast of heart-shaped balloons, champagne and more shoes than you could ever imagine.
And so we set about sourcing the very best petals and marshmallows and candy floss and glitter and love hearts and mini eggs and heart-shaped glasses and ribbons and shoes that the world had to offer.
Your six year old self would be proud.
Every single shoot from 2013 took place outdoors, in sun-drenched meadows, under fecund branches of wisteria, in forests and dappled glades. Hell we even went to the beach! For 2014, we decided to move our creative vision indoors against a back-drop of off-white floorboards and ummm bathtubs…
More on the bathtubs later…
And who were we going to use to capture our romantic capers? Well that would be the lovely Julia from Julia & You Photography. Her talent for capturing beautiful detailing and romantic outlook suited our vision perfectly and we are bowled over by the results.
Let’s take a look…
If you follow our Facebook page or my Instagram account then you might have seen some of our sneak peeks of our first RMW styled editorial of 2014. Not content with a gentle transition back into work after the Christmas break we decided to launch a new blog whilst simultaneously staging a sizeable shoot down in London.
ALL in January.
No rest for the wicked eh?
I have a tendency to be a bit ‘serious’ when it comes to envisioning and styling editorial. I like everything to be ‘just so’ whilst epitomising grown-up glamour at the same time. My chosen colour-palettes tend to be muted and on the sophisticated side of the spectrum and I’m always drawn to wistful ponderous images as opposed to those about the lighter side of life.
Despite my confessions above I am a hopeless romantic and I adore Valentine’s Day (yes I know it’s a commercial gimmick) I just can’t help myself. And I love this time of year – full of the promise of longer days and sunshine and Spring flowers and lambs gambolling in the fields.
It made perfect sense then to make the first RMW editorial of 2014 a (personal) challenge, something unexpected, something carefree and girly and FUN.
‘Enamoured’ as we’ve so aptly named it is the result.
I hope you like it…
As always we love to share the inspiration behind all of our editorial shoots with you lovely lot before the grand reveal; the smorgasboard of delicious images below should give you a hint of what’s to come tomorrow afternoon.… View the full post.
