The first signs of Spring are something that I look forward to every year – so I was always going to love this inspiration shoot from Coco Venues and Katrina Otter Weddings, inspired by early, fresh Spring days.
I just know you’re all going to fall head-over-heels for it too – gorgeous boho-yet-sexy Rue de Seine gowns, gold Isabelle Row accessories, refreshing white blooms and some oh-so pretty hair and make up looks to swoon over.
Right, I’ll stop waffling and let you enjoy the pretty – pin fingers at the ready…
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.
We’ve got some really good news for you this Friday afternoon – not only do we have the exclusive first-look of the new collection ‘Blue Iris’ from Amanda Wyatt – but also we’re thrilled to announce that Amanda is now a lovely RMW Fashion Pack member too!
If you’ve started searching for ‘the one’ (the dress, not the husband – we’re assuming that if you’re here, then you’ve found him), you will no doubt have come across the beautiful designs from Amanda Wyatt.
With three generations and over 50 years of bridal fashion heritage (!) Amanda Wyatt has listened, learned and evolved. This means that if you’re an Amanda Wyatt Bride or a stockist then you will develop a personal relationship and partnership with the AW team. Which is exactly what you want when you are investing in the outfit for the best day of you life!
We love to champion British design and so we’re really proud to have Amanda Wyatt in our Fashion Pack.
If you click into the gallery, you can see the front and back of all of the gorgeous gowns and their names – do let us know which gowns you’ve fallen for!
My favourites are Brogan – those pretty lace straps that cross at the back? LOVE them! And Juliette – because I’m still crazy about lace sleeves.
RMW Grooms tend to be a style conscious bunch, sometimes they rival the ladies in the time it takes to put together their wedding day outfits!
We’re not complaining though – we LOVE a dapper Groom, whether he’s in top hat and tails, tweed, a kilt, or even shorts…
This lunchtime we’re showcasing the 2014 Look Book from Marc Wallace. If you’ve got a boy on the look out for a bespoke, luxurious suit for w-day, then look no further.
Marc Wallace launched his first collection in 2000 and has since become renowned worldwide for his handmade suits and luxury accessories; Marc’s passion to challenge the direction of menswear is evident in the label’s fresh and original style.
Through Marc’s hands on approach, collaborating with skilled artisans on limited edition pieces, the label continues to drive forward with inspiration and design at it’s heart.
The Marc Wallace collections have always been at the forefront of British menswear and tailoring. Each collection embodies a mix of traditional tailoring techniques, designs and luxury fabrics.
With their made to measure offering, they carry a core selection of seasonal fabrics carefully selected by Marc and his team from the UK and Italian mills, offering only the finest quality.
With the weather being so beautiful, this afternoon we’re turning our attention to outfits for summer occasions – be it a garden party, a pool party, a trip out on the river, a glamorous beachside bar – our Fashion Pack members have got it covered. Actually, that doesn’t really do it justice…they’ve got it covered with style!
So, let us know if any of the designers have picked things you love, if you’ve been tempted to purchase anything…and if you’ve got any great recommendations for the perfect outfit for a summery celebration then do let us know – the RMW team don’t need much encouragement to shop!
This afternoon’s shoot is unashamedly pink and fluffy. It’s light hearted, oh-so pretty and sums up the phrase ‘girls just wanna have fun’ to perfection.
There’s the sweetest pink poodle, endless amounts of pink gift wrapped presents, a giant heart shaped balloon and bucket loads of blooms, with hues ranging from the palest blush to the brightest fuchsia.
And I haven’t even mentioned THAT dessert table yet, swelling under the weight of the most delicious looking goodies imaginable.
It really is like a birthday party from your childhood dreams…from the time when your favourite colour was unquestionably pink and you always wanted to wear your best frock, whatever the occasion.
Hmmmm, as far as team RMW is concerned, not much has changed…
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.
If you are looking for a very special something blue, or if you are looking for something to remember your wedding day by, or perhaps even something to pass on to your daughter on her wedding day – then the new range of lace garters from The Wedding Garter Co. is definitely for you.
Hand made in lace sourced from a long-standing family of lace makers, with every pattern hand drawn and every bead sewn on by hand, these lace garters really are something to treasure forever.
And not only that, but they are made in The Wedding Garter Co.’s ancient workshop just outside the beautiful town of Bath, England.
Achingly pretty and so feminine, they really are the final piece of any Bridal outfit. Even if the only person who gets to see it is your Groom.
This lunchtime we’re so, so excited to tell you lovely lot that Houghton Bride NYC are coming to the UK! London Town to be more precise.
Houghton Bride are holding a trunk show at Soho House between 3rd – 6th June, strictly by appointment only – where you can see these gorgeous, gorgeous gowns in the flesh. And not only that, but Houghton designer herself, Katharine Polk, will be there to help and advise you.
If you’re looking for a Bridal gown with a fashion edge, then Houghton Bride is definitely for you. Form fitting, elegant, with the most beautiful lace and sequin details – their gowns really are exquisite.
Personally, I’m in love with the semi-sheer, lace detailed, spaghetti strapped beauty above. And, there’s ALWAYS a place in my heart for a Bridal gown with pockets!
Events like this don’t come around often – so if you are looking for a dress with some serious wow factor – get yourself to the trunk show!
Houghton Bride’s first ever UK trunk show is coming to London between Monday 3rd June – Friday 6th June 2014 at Soho House , Dean Street Townhouse, 69-71 Dean Street, Soho, London, W1D 3SE.
