A Rock And Roll Wedding.

charlotteandwill

As much as I love thrown-together-boho weddings, I’ve also got a place in my heart for a theme wedding…especially a well executed one. And I think it’s fair to say that Charlotte & Will totally nailed their 50s inspired shindig!

From the gig style posters designed by Charlotte, to the life-sized cardboard cut out of Elvis – their wedding is a proper 50s rock and roll party.

Guest were even served diner-style burgers and fries, complete with French’s mustard, followed by knickerbocker glories…I know! How amazing does that sound?

I also love the use of bright yellow flowers – perfect for bringing some sunshine to a February wedding, as do those gorgeous the butterfly print Bridesmaids dresses…

Arabic Glamour In The Heart Of Hampshire.

amalandjohn

I’m so excited to be sharing the wedding of Amal and John with you all this morning. Partly because it’s just so, so, so pretty, partly because it’s such a wonderful mix of cultures, but also because the write up comes from the lovely Groom, John. He has clearly been welcomed into Amal’s family with open arms.

Amal looks breathtakingly beautiful in her Justin Alexander gown and veil. The lace detailing is exquisite and it’s such a stunning colour. I’m also in love with her elegant up-do.

Ohhh just wait until you see the bridesmaids too – they look amazing!! Gold and pink is the best combination and each girl looks fabulous.

Also, I’m afraid I can’t promise that this wedding won’t make you cry – we’ve got the wedding film from Andrew Marshall for you, as well the images from Angela. The bit where Amal’s Dad hands her over to John set me off…and then I couldn’t stop…

It’s such a pretty one lovelies – enjoy!!

Dedicated To You.

jemmaandlee

Imagine if you were to combine a shop full of weird and wonderful memorabilia and vintage items, with a sumptuous wedding in a Victorian hotel…well people, that’s exactly how I would describe Jemma and Lee’s big day.

The lovely pair used bits and bobs they had from home for the decor – bell jars, pearls, vintage keys, old books, phrenology heads, fortune telling hands AND pieces of taxidermy all make an appearance. I can only imagine how fun their house is to visit…

Go with it – because I promise you it WORKS. SO. WELL.

I would also go as far to say that Jemma’s winged eyeliner is probably the best I’ve ever seen. The bold look works perfectly behind her demure birdcage veil. And those stacks of vintage pearls work amazingly as a statement necklace.

Today’s wedding also makes me wonder why more Bridesmaids aren’t dressed in black…these ladies look so chic and you can never go wrong with an LBD. Especially a barginous one from the high street with pretty white lace detail!

Danielle & Scott: The Engagement

real-bride-header-2015

Hello friends, how excited I am to be here writing for Rock my Wedding thanks to all of your lovely votes! I’m not going to lie, it’s also a little surreal, and a little scary to be sharing our wedding story with so many people, but I cannot wait to get talking with you all, and hopefully save my friends from constant wedding chat.

I don’t even know how that happened – I’ve never really been a girl to dream of her wedding day, but I can 100% confirm that since Scott & I got engaged 8 months ago, it has been my number one favourite topic of conversation (we’re not including my French Bulldog Vinnie, because anyone that knows me, knows that he is actually the only thing I talk about)!

Paper And Maths.

Ross-&-Nikki

There’s something infinity calming about a blue colour scheme at a wedding especially when it’s set amongst a beautiful countryside setting like that of Ross and Nikki’s big day. The pair spent precious hours carefully folding one thousand origami cranes which they later hung in the marquee as part of their wedding decor. Time well spent in my opinion as the finished result looks fantastic!

Looking at Nikki’s beautiful bridal gown you’d never know that she struggled to find her perfect dress. It’s quite clear that the pleated, floaty light creation she chose from Theia was waiting for her all along.

And her bouquet of creamy peonies and roses? Yep I could bury my nose in that all day long.

Delicious.

Chateau Chic.

Cover-Image

I swear if there’s ever a bride and groom that have smiled from ear to ear for the whole of their wedding day then it’s Lucie and Stuart. The pair married at Lucy’s parents’ super chic manoir in Puisseguin, France complete with a classic and elegant black tie theme.

And it looks as if everyone had an absolute hoot judging from the beams on their stylish guests’ faces.

Perhaps what I love most about this ‘I Do’ apart from Mister Phill’s awesome photography of the day is the time and dedication that Lucie put into the decor and styling of her wedding reception. Be it the spotty black and white paper wrapped lovingly around mini baguettes for each guest, the antique clocks set at the times that each event of the day was due to take place at or the glass window frames doubling up as an epic table plan…there’s something to gaze at in every photo.

And let’s not forget the flowers either; the little galvanised buckets filled with Gypsophila, Lucie’s Anenome and Peony bouquet and the sweet spotty feather and Gypsophila buttonholes for the boys. All just so lovely!
