Rock My Wedding readers Carly & Simon both love the arts, particularly music and theatre. They reflected their shared passions with a Shakespeare themed wedding in old London town.

With a Justin Alexander gown, maids in Jenny Packham for Debenhams and photography by Dominique Bader this vintage inspired wedding is as beautiful as one of Will’s sonnets. I love the fact that Carly and Simon got up on stage to contribute a few lines in a play performed for their guests at the reception, check it out!

The Joys Of Spring


Cover Image4 The Joys Of Spring


Well this is just lovely. Rachel looks so elegant in her fishtail lace gown and the spring blooms are to die for, I love the mix of orange and yellow tulips in particular. You’ve also got to hand it to a bride who can’t resist a bargain, dedicating her budget to the things that matter and making clever savings in areas that are less important.

Did I mention this is one of the greatest table plans I have seen in a long time? such a fun film theme – and so well put together. The cake also deserves a mention, simple yet sophisticated and ties in beautifully with the rustic decor and feminine colour scheme.

Enjoy lovelies!

Love, Light And Laughter.


yasminandalex Love, Light And Laughter.


This morning’s wedding is extra special because it has two ceremonies and two gowns. So there’s twice as much wedding pretty for you!

You’d think with two ceremonies to fit into the day that everything would be on a tight schedule and that it would be totally jam-packed, but Yasmin and Alex’s big day looks unbelievably relaxed and laid back.

They even stopped off for brunch after the first ceremony. I know? How perfect does that sound?

There are so many gorgeous Spring flowers on show too – bright yellow daffodils, deep purple tulips and dainty crocus, which make such pretty bouquets. The flowers look beautiful in the river side venue too and are the perfect way to bring the season indoors.

A Rock And Roll Wedding.


charlotteandwill A Rock And Roll Wedding.


As much as I love thrown-together-boho weddings, I’ve also got a place in my heart for a theme wedding…especially a well executed one. And I think it’s fair to say that Charlotte & Will totally nailed their 50s inspired shindig!

From the gig style posters designed by Charlotte, to the life-sized cardboard cut out of Elvis – their wedding is a proper 50s rock and roll party.

Guest were even served diner-style burgers and fries, complete with French’s mustard, followed by knickerbocker glories…I know! How amazing does that sound?

I also love the use of bright yellow flowers – perfect for bringing some sunshine to a February wedding, as do those gorgeous the butterfly print Bridesmaids dresses…

Dedicated To You.


jemmaandlee Dedicated To You.


Imagine if you were to combine a shop full of weird and wonderful memorabilia and vintage items, with a sumptuous wedding in a Victorian hotel…well people, that’s exactly how I would describe Jemma and Lee’s big day.

The lovely pair used bits and bobs they had from home for the decor – bell jars, pearls, vintage keys, old books, phrenology heads, fortune telling hands AND pieces of taxidermy all make an appearance. I can only imagine how fun their house is to visit…

Go with it – because I promise you it WORKS. SO. WELL.

I would also go as far to say that Jemma’s winged eyeliner is probably the best I’ve ever seen. The bold look works perfectly behind her demure birdcage veil. And those stacks of vintage pearls work amazingly as a statement necklace.

Today’s wedding also makes me wonder why more Bridesmaids aren’t dressed in black…these ladies look so chic and you can never go wrong with an LBD. Especially a barginous one from the high street with pretty white lace detail!

Kate and Toby had a relaxed and stylish wedding at Buxted Park. Kate looks effortless glamorous in her fishtail Benjamin Roberts and Toby rocked the Reiss in style. With friends and family arriving to celebrate from all over the UK, Buxted Park offered the perfect solution for the ceremony, reception and accommodation, not to mention beautiful interiors and views.

Message In A Bottle.


message Message In A Bottle.


We love sharing inspirational Bridal shoots with you lovely lot and today’s is a corker.

The theme captures the sense of longing we all feel when parted from our loved one…waiting for them to return. Minutes feel like hours…hours feel like days.

It’s a throwback to times when you had to wait weeks for a letter from your lover to arrive…when people were still hopeful and romantic enough to put a message in a bottle and watch it drift out to sea.

I don’t know about you, but I think Tuesday afternoons are definitely lacking in a bit of romance – so this shoot from Light & Lace Photography is very welcome.

Right, I’m off to braid my hair, find a pink feather shrug and send a love note out into the ocean.

At The High School Dance.


katiedan At The High School Dance.


This morning’s wedding is the wedding of teenage sweethearts Katie & Dan.

The sweet pair have been together since they were bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and married in the village where they had their first kiss.

Isn’t that adorable?

They had such a fun wedding too, I love the vibrant blooms and the Bridesmaids look great in their postbox red prom dresses.

The 50s high school dance theme worked perfectly in the village hall and they had total control over the decor…this meant fairy lights, flowers in jam jars and bunting galore.

Having tables named after 50s icons such as Brigitte Bardot and Elvis is such a fun idea too. Are you ready? I think you’re going to like this one…

A Spring Heaven.


lanaandrahul A Spring Heaven.


Lovers of pretty pastel tones and vintage details will be swooning over this mornings wedding at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park…right in the heart of London, but you’d never guess from the images of Lana and Rahul surrounded by nature.

The lovely couple’s big day literally couldn’t be more full of the joys of Spring – Easter eggs, daffodils, tulips, a bicycled bedecked in blooms and the sweetest colour palette you ever did see.

I love Bridesmaids in yellow and this group look particularly gorgeous in vintage dresses, loving searched for by the Bridal party.

And as well as the lovely images from Shell de Mar, we also have the highlights film from Newlywed Films – which I have to admit made me shed several happy tears…

A Question To Be Answered.


katandmark A Question To Be Answered.


This morning’s lovely couple, Kat and Mark, married at Brighton Bandstand. I would go as far to say it looks like one of the coolest places to get married in the UK.

The bandstand itself is beautiful – it dates from 1884 and is considered to be one of the finest examples of a Victorian bandstand still surviving in England today!! With azure blue sea behind it and Brighton Pier and the town sea-front by it’s side, I don’t think it could be more quintessentially Britain-by-the-Sea.

Kat and Mark were so lucky with the weather too – glorious sunshine meant that their dream ceremony could be a reality.

Their wedding just looks like so much fun, lots of live music, lots of friends and lots of delicious food. So, without further ado, let’s enjoy Kat and Mark’s vintage Brighton themed wedding…
