Hello, Adam Here (again!) I hope you aren’t getting bored of me just yet. I have had a busy one both behind the scenes and front of house at RMW this week, and as a finale I am sharing with you the wedding of Marc and Amy.
With no bridesmaids or best man this is a wedding that breaks the rules of convention. The short floral dress and classic VW camper add a sense of bohemia and a great big dose of WOW! But before I give it all away I’ll hand you over to Amy herself…
I bought my dress from the wedding collection at Monsoon. It took me a while to decide on a dress but I knew that I wanted a low key wedding with a more casual feel so I went for a short dress, it had lovely detail on the front and I loved the style of it.
If You’re Going To San Francisco…
I only had two yellow roses pinned into my hair, I didn’t want to wear a veil or tiara as I didn’t think it would go with my dress.
I went for quite skyscraper heels! I got them from Nine West, they were leather rather than satin but in a cream colour and I love them and can wear them lots more!
I did my own make up, I had a free trial at a Bobbi Brown counter, I bought their eye make up but I wasn’t keen on the foundation so I bought a clinique foundation and on the day just did it myself. A lady called Sarah at Truffle Hairdressers in Rye did my hair, again I wanted it quite low key, I knew I wanted it slightly curly and some up and I was really pleased with how she did my hair, we had a trial before hand and then on the day she came to the George to do my hair.
I’ll Buy You A Yellow Rose
My favourite flowers are yellow roses so I had them as my bouquet with white mini gerberas, for the table centre pieces I had yellow roses and bright pink and orange mini gerberas.
Suited and Booted
Marc bought a suit from Next and his Dad and my Dad had yellow roses for button holes. Marc had a dark grey suit with cream tie which matched my dress.
We chose Liam Smith for the photography, he did a wedding of someone that we knew and were very impressed with the photos so went with him and we were not disappointed.
I had the idea for the wedding cake to be a VW camper van and I rang round some cake people and chose a lady in Maidstone. The company is called Creative Cakes, we had a lemon sponge cake which was delicious and I was really impressed with the final result.
We didn’t have a separate reception, we had 35 people to the day and evening and so just had music from an iPod for the evening which worked well.
We got our favours from Custom Cookie Co, they were biscuits in the shape of VW camper can, the girls had pink and the boys yellow and the names were written on each one so they doubled up as name settings as well. These went down really well with everybody, I would definitely recommend them, they came packaged really well, no breakages or anything and they gave a few extra just in case. They weren’t cheap but well worth it!
Keeping it Simple
The table centres had candles in the middle of them, other than that we didn’t have much in the way of decoration, the chairs were all cream and the room was lovely without anything else.
We had a friend whose parents owned a VW split screen camper can which we had as a wedding car, I know for the Groom this really made his day as he is obsessed with them! For me I loved the cake and it was the one little extravagance we had. I think best piece of advice is don’t be nervous, relax and make the most of it because it goes far too quickly!

I really really really really want a split-screen Vdub Camper. I don’t actually think it’s fair that I haven’t got one. I also want a cake please. And a biscuit.
Have a great Friday people.
