Hand Made In The Peak District

Beth made HER OWN DRESS. I know, how talented is that?! I wouldn’t even know where to start. Such an elegant and timeless design too, the shape works perfectly with the fresh natural make-up and pretty up-do. I also love how she added a delicate cardigan for evening – a sensible and stylish way to change up your look.

Now then, I must mention the “naked” cake, I have never seen so many layers in all my life, there is enough to feed 500 guests there at least… although if it was my cake I would definitely be taking home a large quantity for myself. Ahem.

One Jolly Scottish Wedding.

sarahandangus

Long standing readers of RMW will recognise this morning’s beautiful Bride…

Sarah of ‘One Jolly Girl’ fame is a previous Real Bride competitor and so we’re thrilled to be bringing you her wedding this morning!

You may have seen her work at Real Bride Karen’s wedding (where she made the cake) and you can’t have failed to notice her appreciation for a man in a kilt…I don’t doubt she went weak at the knees when she saw husband Angus on their wedding day!

As I’m sure Angus did when he saw Sarah in her fishtail Justin Alexander number. She looks so beautiful, radiant and happy.

Sarah and Angus outdid themselves with their gorgeous Scottish beach wedding. The Tunnock’s branding style stationery looks amazing, the whole beach ceremony set-up is stunning and of course, Sarah’s wedding cake looks absolutely delicious.

Without further ado, I’ll pass you over to Sarah to tell you all about her and Angus’ big day…

Peach And Rose Gold For A Laid Back London Wedding.

abby&lawrence

Our final wedding for the week is a lovely, relaxed London affair. Abby and Lawrence chose the beautiful and elegant Victorian conservatory at the Horniman Museum as their ceremony venue, followed by an informal reception at The Artisan of Clerkenwell, which just looks so cosy and welcoming and like the perfect place to celebrate your marriage with family and friends.

I love Abby’s choice of colour scheme – peach and rose gold was always going to be a winning combination and it’s feminine, pretty and delicate and works perfectly with the more masculine dark brown tones of the reception venue.

A London wedding wouldn’t be complete without the route master buses and I love that Abby and Lawrence provided their guests with champagne and goodie bags full of treats for the journey.

There are also some rather fabulous ‘just married’ lanterns that I know lots of you are going to want for your big day too…

Summer & Robin: The Perfect Blank Canvas.

summer real bride header 2 Today I’m going to be telling you a little bit about our venue.

Court Farm is a 16th Century farmhouse set in ten acres of grounds. A lovingly restored farm house just outside of Bath, it’s an absolutely beautiful, contemporary (yet rustic), comfortable home and business. I feel deadly excited to spend my wedding weekend there. The extended farm house has enough space for both of our families to be able to spend a joyous long weekend together. My family don’t really ‘do’ quiet and reflective, we’re a pretty rowdy bunch, but I’m looking forward to some personal (hungover) moments together the day after.

On the day of our wedding the outdoor space will be the main attraction. A marquee is going to be attached to the back of the barn to extend out to a dining area, leaving the main barn space free for dancing and a bar. This is were all my hard crafty work comes in. In my head it’s decked out in all the Pinterest ideas ever (and looks good) but what is it that Coco Chanel said…”simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance”. I will need to channel some Chanel where decorating is concerned or I might get a bit carried away. Or not, haha.

Win £500 Towards Your Honeymoon With Patchwork Present.

patchworkfinal

Hooray! It’s competition time! Fancy the chance of winning £500 towards your dream honeymoon? Thought so!!

At RMW we find that more and more of you lovely lot veer away from the traditional department store wedding lists and instead ask friends and family for donations to your honeymoon.

I mean let’s be honest, most of us live with our significant other halves for a while before getting married, so what’s going to be more useful to you – a set of cheese knives? Another toaster? Or a cash donation to your honeymoon???

Asking for cash can seem a little dry though…which is where gift list alternative Patchwork Present comes in! We introduced them to you a little while ago – you can read all about what they do here.

Patchwork Present offer an alternative gift list that lets you show your wedding guests your dream honeymoon as a ‘patchwork’ of individual experiences so they can choose which part of your trip they want to treat you to – £100 for a night in a hotel, £50 for an elephant ride or even £5 for two beers on the beach. Independent of any travel agents, contributions from your friends go direct to your PayPal account for you to spend when and where you like. A brilliant way to invite guests to fund your honeymoon without the embarrassment of asking for cash!

This month they’re offering Rock My Wedding readers the chance to win £500 cash when you use their site to fund your honeymoon. Patchwork Present 1

Disco Cages And Peach Flavoured Delights In Wiltshire.

Nina-&-Daniel

For once I’m lost for words with the opening to this morning’s wedding – that of Nina and Daniel who said ‘I do’ by the riverside in Wiltshire.

Why might you ask? Well it’s because this big day is flipping AWESOME, that’s why. There are so many gorgeously creative details that it’s hard to know where to begin. But begin I must, so I’ll start with Nina’s oh so chic and simple bridal gown from Jenny Packham. If there’s one thing I have a bit of a soft spot for lovelies then it’s those brides who choose and are able to carry off the merest slip of a gown for their wedding day and Nina does this with aplomb!

And then there’s ALL the decorative details; I don’t want to give away too much at this point but I will say that there are mirror balls and peach coloured lampshades and disco cages and stars and giant letters and an ACTUAL LOVE TENT.

Yes an actual Love Tent. Cor blimey, it’s enough to make this wedding blog editor hyperventilate!

So whilst I take myself off in an attempt to calm down from the sheer epicness of this big day I urge you to read on dear readers and experience the joy for yourselves.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you…

An Adult Santa’s Grotto And Woodland Wedding.

Cover-Image

Oh my! I have a sneaking suspicion that you are going to fall in love with this afternoon’s wedding – that of Jacqueline and Joe who married on Lusty Beg Island amidst the backdrop of New Year’s revelries.

For a start Jacqueline is BEAUTIFUL with delicious bridal accessories to match – I mean you just can’t help but gawp at her super sparkly Gucci shoes in awe. But that’s not all!

I adore pretty much EVERYTHING in this wonderful ‘I do’ from the illustrated stationery to the super chic bridesmaid dresses from BHLDN all the way through to the epic portrait shots by the Guinness sign and the dapper men in tweed. And you need to check out the ceiling accessories adorning the pair’s wedding reception – now that’s how to drape paper chains in style.

Take it away you gorgeous pair!
