Belle & Bunty: The Bridesmaid Collection.

Belle And Bunty Bridesmaid Dress Collection Belle & Bunty: The Bridesmaid Collection.

Happy Monday you gorgeous lot you. We’ve got a special treat in store for you today in terms of FABULOUS frockage from the gorgeous girls at Belle & Bunty.

As lovely as they are super sassy and achingly cool on the sartorial front (read a whole darn lot – check out their instagram account here for daily fashion pretty) the designers behind the Belle & Bunty brand – Alice and Hannah – are uber talented too. The girls recently told us all about the launch of their brand new bridesmaid collection and once we’d clapped eyes on it we just knew we had to share it with you.

Colourful and bright and oh so luxurious the new range consists of five styles called, in no particular order, The Luna, The Hera, The Sura, The Theia and The Portia.

Practical as well as stylish, each of the five designs can be made with or without sleeves from a choice of sixteen vibrant colours. And that’s not all! The dresses are all available in maxi, midi and mini lengths too. It’s like being a kid in a candy shop….where to begin?!

Of all the dresses, The Theia is probably my favourite – I’m a sucker for 3/4 length sleeves and a bit of classic tailoring – but I adore all of the frocks for completely different reasons. The Hera for its delicious scooped out back detailing, The Sura for its bohemian infused bodice tailoring, The Luna for its clean lines and ultra modern silhouette and The Portia for its inherent girlyness. In fact the silk look fabric from which all the designs are made has the perfect drape which the Belle & Bunty girls assure me mimics the luxury of the bridal collection but at an attainable price point.

So there you have it, the perfect blend between contemporary and vintage, of playfulness and personality that any fashion-minded maid would be proud to wear again and again.

We’ve got HUGE images of every design for you to enjoy and of course we’ve also included a gallery at the end of this post for you to pin away to your heart’s content – go forth and swoon lovelies!

London Based Bridal Designers Belle And Bunty Launch Their Brand New Bridesmaids Collection comprising of five styles including The Luna The Hera The Sura The Theia and The Portia. 0001 Belle & Bunty: The Bridesmaid Collection.

What Kitty Did…Had Her Happiest Moment Ever.

kittyandal What Kitty Did...Had Her Happiest Moment Ever.

This morning we’re bringing you the first instalment of RMW Real Bride Kitty’s wedding to the lovely Al.

I think Kitty is probably one of our sweetest Real Brides ever – it’s been so lovely reading her planning posts and we’re so happy to be sharing the fruits of her labour with you all.

The wedding is just so pretty and after admitting that flowers weren’t high on her priority list – Kitty has ended up with one of the most stunning bouquets I’ve seen for a while!!

As ever with Kitty’s writing, she expresses her emotions so well that her words will have you living every moment with her.

So, without further ado – I’ll hand you over to Kitty to tell her and Al’s tale. We start on the eve before the big day, with both nerves and excitement running high…

The Fashion Pack Asks What’s In Your Suitcase { Part One }.

Whats In Your Suitcase The Fashion Pack Asks Whats In Your Suitcase { Part One }.

As I write this, I’m looking out of my window at the torrential rain that Mother Nature has decided to gift us on this very grey Friday in April. Technically I know I/we should be grateful; the plants get a thirst-quenching drink and I’m sure that bluer skies will probably be on their way next week. I can’t help feeling a bit miffed however…I mean it’s the end of April and frankly I still feel that we’re in the depths of Winter at times.

Come on Summer!

With dreams of warmer climes and balmy nights on the brain, the RMW team turned their thoughts to summer holidays this week…more specifically honeymoons. In fact some of you lovelies might already be ‘mooning as we speak (which actually makes me a very jealous girl indeed) but then I know there’ll be a fair few of you planning and scheming about your romantic holiday to come and which essentials to pack for the journey.

If you’re anything like me then you’re a veritable hoarder, squirrelling away the equivalent of a year’s worth of provisions for a five day city break. Ridiculous. Yep, you can guarantee that I’ll be the only one out of my family that will check in luggage for the hold rather than taking a carry-on…much to their dismay, but this girl can’t help it. Are any of you guilty of ‘travelling heavy’?

With this packing dilemma in mind we turned to our delicious Fashion Pack designers for a little bit of their divine wisdom and a helping hand and asked them which items they simply couldn’t travel without…

This week we’ll be hearing from Belle & Bunty, Kate Halfpenny, Naomi Neoh and Johanna Hehir. Check back next Friday for more inspiration from Charlotte Balbier, Wednesday Roses and Suzanne Neville.

Always Love.

beccaandash Always Love.

Awww, just look at this cute pair. I love this wedding. It’s just so fun-filled and happy and Bride Becca’s report is a joy to read.

That beautiful red rose bouquet you can see is actually made from paper. I know!! Paper?? Becca made it herself and I have to say, it really is something to be proud of.

And not only did Becca make the bouquets, but all of the button holes too. AND she designed ALL of the stationery. One very talented and dedicated Bride.

Becca also has lots of sound advice when it comes to the dress too – as you’ll see. But I think you’ll agree that she looks gorgeous and you wouldn’t think for a second that the dress was anything but perfect.

This wedding also contains one of the sweetest first dance song choices I’ve ever come across. Seriously, it’s a story that will make your heart melt…

RMW Rates – Sara Dalrymple Photography

Introducing London natural wedding photographer Sara Dalrymple

Hello! I’m Sara and I’m a natural wedding photographer based in London.

When I say I’m a natural wedding photographer, I mean that I keep a strong focus on capturing the natural moments and real emotion that all weddings are bursting with. The magical and totally unique atmosphere of a wedding brings out real emotion in everybody – it’s in the eyes, smiles and happy tears of all those you have chosen to celebrate the day with, and it is these wonderful moments that give me goosebumps and that I want to preserve for you.

saradalrymple 0001 RMW Rates   Sara Dalrymple Photography

I love getting to know new people and taking natural photos that capture a sense of personality. I have always loved looking through old photos – imagining who the people in them were, daydreaming about the lives they led and wondering what they were thinking the moment the photo was created. That’s why it’s so important to me that I get to know you…I like my photos to show a little of who you are and your feelings in that moment. I want you to love your photographs, to help you always remember your wedding day in all it’s glory, and I love the idea that at some point future generations will get out your wedding album or family portraits and will continue to get just as much enjoyment out of looking through them.

I work in a friendly and relaxed way, I don’t like to impose or for anything I do to be forced, most of the time you won’t even notice me as I document your wedding unobtrusively, always looking for those special moments that when captured are such precious keepsakes, so unique to your day.

My favourite weddings to shoot are those that reflect your unique style and keep a strong sense of fun. My aim is to create a beautiful and timeless set of wedding photographs that capture who you are and the unique spirit of your day, for you to treasure forever.

A Skiing Adventure In Alderney.

Holly Derek A Skiing Adventure In Alderney.

Holly and Derek’s ski-inspired beachside ‘I Do’ is a real stunner of a wedding. It really is. In fact I’m not sure what to talk to you about first. Technically you wouldn’t think that a skiing wedding theme would blend so harmoniously with a seaside location but it really does. In fact they go together so seamlessly that it’s a wonder that no-one’s thought of this pairing before.

Anyhow Holly and Derek’s big day has stolen a little piece of my heart; their paper branding is fresh and original and so completely spot on…right the way down to their off-piste bar. I love their ethos of recycling and collecting every piece of decor for their wedding day and the fact that the community of Alderney rallied together to contribute to their day brought a tear to my eye.

And blimey when I say there are some cracking looking guests at this wedding I’m not ruddy joking. Everyone is smiling and joking and so flipping cool!

Old Fashioned Traditional English Style In An Italian Setting.

Cover Image edited 1 Old Fashioned Traditional English Style In An Italian Setting.

I think it’s safe to say that Adele and Todd’s wedding is the first I’ve seen where the bride arrives with her father in a boat. And what a handsome boat it was! And OH MY! What a SETTING.

If there’s ever a place that has jumped to the top of my must see list then it’s Lake Orta and when you see the images for yourselves I think you’ll agree. It is sublime, completely picturesque and the most perfect setting to contrast a little bit of English charm against the majesty of the Italian landscape.

Adele and Todd injected their day with a healthy dose of their personalities – from Todd’s brightly coloured and perfect (English) gentlemanly accessories to Adele’s love of sparkle. Her skin is also the perfect combination of porcelain and luminosity – I am so jealous.

And then there’s their attention to detail – to all the little touches of their intimate wedding.

It’s a total love fest!
