I Want Them ALL.

celeb dress header I Want Them ALL.

A wee while ago on our Facebook page we shared an image of Fearne Cotton’s wedding day, she looked beautiful and it went viral – we had over a 2.5 million reach. I know….what?!

It just goes to show that folks love a butchers at a celebrity big day dress, it is kind of fascinating, they must have so many contacts and so much choice!

As a result we asked our own fashion pack members what their favourite celebrity wedding dresses of all time were and which famous face they would like to design for, given the choice. We’ve shared the details below for your afternoon pleasure, please do share in the comments box what your favourite is – we would love to know!


A New Beginning.

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…

Rustic Glamour.

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!

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.

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.

And we have it on good authority that Hyacinth is the personal favourite of Charlotte Balbier – fabulous designer and RMW Fashion Pack member.

In The Pink.

inthepink In The Pink.

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…

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.

Pale Valentine.

palevalentine Pale Valentine.

So I know it’s May, not February…but Valentines Day is a day that celebrates love and romance, as does a wedding…

So when we received this pretty shoot from photographer, Eva Sanders, we just knew we had to share it with you. Albeit a few months past February 14th.

The inspiration shoot features the gorgeous new collection from Corrine Smith, a Scottish designer who makes all of her pieces by hand.

Decadence celebrates 10 years of business for Corrine and is a truly stunning collection. I’m in love with the Magda headpiece, with a crystal and pearl detail and delicately draping gold chain.

I love the styling of this shoot too – elegant in it’s simplicity, light bright and airy, but with warmth from the muted tones AND a sense of fun from the colour pop make-up and the floating paper hearts.

There’s also a bouquet that will make you go weak at the knees and see carnations in a whole new light…just look at this image below…
