You know the whole “Shall I wear my hair up or down?!” debate for W-day? well, you could always do exactly what Amy-Jean did and have the best of both worlds….I like this idea VERY much….especially when it involves an over-sized floral accessory.
I also like the “After Eight face climb challenge” (no idea what I’m on about? well you’ll just have to take a peek at the images then…) and the obvious good time all of the guests had on the dance floor.
There is also cake. Lots and LOTS of cake.
The Angel Cave
The Bride Amy-Jean: My dream location would have been New York! We are such a ‘city’ couple, but unfortunately NYC was soon crossed off the list. It was important to us that everyone we loved was with us and this wouldn’t have been possible if we’d have gone stateside! My parents live in Skipton, North Yorkshire. Dave’s immediate family live in The Canary Islands, the rest live in Liverpool and we live in London, so Skipton seemed as good a place as any, and it’s a beautiful part of the world. So with that decided, the search began.
Our ceremony was held at The Wine Cave at The Angel in Hetton. We wanted a place that was small, cosy and romantic, a perfect venue if that’s what you are looking for, it was absolutely stunning. The ceremony was beautiful and intimate and we really couldn’t have asked for anything more! We then moved on to eat, drink and party the night away at Utopia, in the grounds of Broughton Hall.… View the full post.
Hannah and Marek Married in August 2012 at Tunnels Beaches, Ilfracombe.
Marek helped Hannah choose her dress. Yep. Throwing tradition out of the window, he helped her pick the perfect finish to her dress. I quite love this. It’s a massive decision to make and I for one found it very difficult not to discuss it with Mr S so Hannah must have felt just lovely being able to share the decision with her beloved Marek. They shared every aspect of their day. They even got ready together.
Also something else we don’t see that often. There are no flowers at this wedding. Yep, you heard me right…no flowers. But I promise you you won’t be disappointed…
Finer Than Cobwebs
Hannah The Bride: I searched long and hard for a Tea-length wedding dress and was so pleased to find Candy Anthony, a Boutique on the South Bank in London. I eventually chose a simple Ivory strapless gown with the most beautiful lace overlay – finer than cobwebs! It had a four layer baby pink petticoat. My brother (who was also the best man) came with me to see the dresses at the boutique on my first visit and we chose a pink polkadot overlay. Then on my second visit, Marek came with me, he insisted upon the lace overlay, and he was right. I’m glad I took my groom with me.
Pearls And Umbrellas
There were no hair accessories for me. I wore a pearl necklace belonging to my Mum (given to her by my Grandma) and a pearl bracelet given to me by my Grandma for my 21st birthday.… View the full post.
Tuesday are so boring. Until now! There are so many details in Hannah and Tim’s wedding that I’m not even sure where to start.
With their 1950′s theme perfected they achieved a truly glamorous day. And Hannah has so many fantastic vintage suppliers to share with you.
The images captured by the fabulous Lisa Devlin really tell a story about Hannah and Tim; who they are, what they’re about and the love they share. Enjoy this fabulous story told by bride Hannah and leave her some love for a wedding so true to her individual style and love of all things vintage.
A Suitably Quirky Venue
Chiddingstone is a gorgeous rural National Trust village 15 minutes from our home, which makes me feel like I am on a period film set every time I am there! Tim and I wanted a very traditional church ceremony from day one and St Mary’s is absolutely beautiful. We then wanted a reception venue which had the feeling of “come back to our country mansion for some super food, drink and dancing”. We both knew Chiddingstone Castle was the venue for us as soon as we walked in. It was intimate, Wintery, glamourous and suitably quirky with its crazy encased mummy, random artefacts and chintz floral wallpaper in various rooms. The fact that our guests could go to the old country pub opposite the church before the ceremony and could walk 2 minutes down a pretty path and over a footbridge from the church to the castle rounded off our decision.… View the full post.
I like very much the fact that groom Phil found photographers Navyblur whilst perusing Rock My Wedding. I like very VERY much the fact this wedding is fashion epic-ness and we get to share it with you gorgeous lot.
Bride Nino is all huge brown peepers and hot pixie crop, her maids are decked in mis-matched yet perfect-for-them frocks and the venue “Made In Belfast” is one of my favourites in the whole wide world in terms of decor and design.
Also the couple’s idea of naming all of their tables after a famous Phil or Nino made me laugh out loud…..and the apples used as paper holders is simple, cheap and genius.
NOT Celine Dion
Nino The Bride:I didn’t try on any dresses, and as a little girl never dreamt of wedding dresses – in fact, while kicking up a fuss about having to wear a white dress for my First Holy Communion, I had my Uncle Norman record me declaring that should I be found walking down the aisle again that it would be in a white suit! Luckily for me time and basements are unfriendly to VHS tapes…
Thinking of Celine Dion’s Givenchy backwards suit *shiver* I knew I wanted a simple 50’s style dress. My criteria: short, blush and print. Though not blush, I fell in love with this flowery white silk organza. From there, I asked about for leads of seamstress’ and met with lovely Amy from New Fashion on Dundas and Bathurst in Toronto.… View the full post.
Oh I LOVE this wedding.
For so many reasons that it’s near on impossible to count them all on one hand…but I’m going to at least attempt to do so.
Firstly preppy, beachside soirees are to die for and Annabel and Darren completely and wholeheartedly embraced this theme with bells on. And it looks EPIC… just wait until you see the table settings and the cake.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen bridesmaids quite as happy as these blue and floral clad ladies, but then, when you look as good as they do you can totally understand why they’re beaming from ear to ear. Which brings me onto the colour scheme – blues and pinks and whites – just perfect for what Annabel describes as ‘a beach picnic with champagne’.
I know! Immense, right?
And then I can’t quite help feeling more than a little bit proud that this beautiful twosome used recommended suppliers from RMW’s very own directory – The Love Lust List. From their wonderful venue – The Gallivant, to their florist – Café des Fleurs and even front page sponsor photographer Jake Morley, it’s like RMW were actually there on the day.
Come on let’s take a look.
Annabel The Bride:We got married at The Town Hall in Rye, East Sussex. We had spent a very special weekend in Rye a few years previously and not only did we fall in love with Rye, we fell in love with each other! Rye is a historic town set on a hill and it’s so pretty and unspoilt; as such we felt it was the perfect romantic venue for our wedding service.… View the full post.
