The more and more weddings we post the less “never seen before” original ideas and decor we come across – that’s a given.
And do you know what? actually it really doesn’t matter – every gorgeous bride puts their own unique spin on their Big Day in some way or other.
It is especially lovely though when we receive a submission that literally has the whole RMW Team going “Goodness Lordy that is TOTALLY DIFFERENT”
And the wedding of Shaun and Sarah captured by the uber talented Binky Nixon did exactly that – the boldest brightest florals we have ever seen anywhere.
Not to mention a completely dreamy and unusual backdrop for the love/couple images.
I like this folks. A lot.
A Magenta Moment
My shoes were very exciting – I wore a pair of magenta jimmy choos which I absolutely love and have been able to wear since.
My dress was made by my mum. I described what I wanted it to look like and she put it together. It had a black ribbon round the waist and she embroidered swallow motifs up the back of the dress. Shaun is from South Africa and the swallow, a symbol of enduring love, migrates the 6,000 miles between there and the UK each year. So it was really special to have something so personal handmade by my mum.
For accessories I just wore black pearl drop earrings and a bracelet that Shaun bought for me that morning as a surprise gift.
A MAC Spree
My hair was done by Barnets Hair Company, Castle Road Bedford – they made the morning there so special for me and all the bridesmaids (I had 5 – so they were kept busy!) I did my make up myself after a little spree at MAC.
The Perfect Venue
Something For The Boys
Shaun wore a lovely suit with an ivory cravat and gloriosa lily button hole. It was fantastic to see him there at the end of the aisle.
We hired the wedding party attire from McBride and Groom in Bedford
A Glorious Bouquet
My bouquet was made up of solely gloriosa lily and looked really striking!
Have you ever seen a bouquet like it?
So much more bright bold statement florals on the way in part 2.
