The Weekly Round Up.

weekly-roundup

So another week has flown past – it’s been a busy one here at RMW HQ. We were up in Shropshire at the beginning of the week shooting for the second issue of our magazine. We’re ALREADY excited to share the results with you, but I’m afraid we’re going to keep you waiting…

Don’t worry though, issue one is brimming with pretty and you can view it right here.

In other news, our lovely Editor Lolly had her baby boy – huge congratulations to her and husband Ste. If you’re relatively new to RMW, you might not have seen Lolly’s very own gorgeous wedding – if not make sure you check it out. It’s every bit as stylish as you’d expect it to be :)

We also featured a plethora of stunning weddings – first up is this unbelievably elegant Italian wedding.

Friday Filler – How To Apply Cream Blusher.

busher-cover

There’s something about cream blusher that sucks me in. I’m not sure what it is but every single time I visit the glittering make-up counters you can be sure as sure that I’ll be dipping my fingers into the latest range of creamy blushers of that particular brand. In fact I’m carrying at least three around in my bag at the moment – from Charlotte Tilbury’s Beach Sticks in ‘Moon Beach’, Chanel’s ‘Inspiration and Laura Mercier’s ‘Oleander’; I think I have all the bases covered.

With this in mind – this simple Friday Filler tutorial is right up my street.

Hopefully it’s up yours too…

How The Cool Kids Get Married.

millieandchristopher

I’m not sure you get actually get much cooler than Millie and Christopher’s East End nuptials…

The pair began proceedings with a three week road trip around California – which included a stop at Coachella Festival (ALWAYS the most hip and stylish looking of all of the festivals).

They had planned a Las Vegas wedding, but Santa Barbra captured their hearts and so they married at the Court House there instead. On their return to the UK, the pair held an intimate and laid back reception in London for their closest friends and family.

A beautiful giant heart shaped wreathe, sparkling with fairy lights and adorned with tiny flowers brings a gorgeous sense of cosiness to the white walls and parquet floor of their venue, St John Bread & Wine. Where guests were served traditional British fare at long wooden tables, surrounded by candles and tulips.

Summer & Robin: The Witches Coven.

summer and robin 5

As we approach the spookiest night of the year, Halloween, Rock My Wedding readers – I proudly introduce you all to…my coven.

Also known as my bridesmaids (also known as my sisters). We aren’t actually witches by the way, we’re just dorks who love The Craft and Sabrina The Teenage Witch (SALEM!!) and dressing up on Halloween. The last time we where together for Halloween, Florence dyed her hair blue to be Enid from Ghost World, Roslyn was a scary dead bride and I was evil Mary-Kate (or) Ashley Olsen. Marianne was too little back then…she’s the baby.

Roslyn, Florence and Marianne or Roz, Floz and Maz, are all younger than me and we are spread out between Bath, Leicester and Paris. We don’t usually all find ourselves in the same place at the same time, so where better to do the introducing than The Canopy and Stars Chapel. Hidden in the woods around Walcot Hall in Shropshire, it was our first holiday all together without Mom n’ Pop.

Peonies And Pearls At Babington House.

Sam-And-Luke

Sam and Luke seriously know the meaning of the words ‘class’ and ‘elegance’ because their big day has it in spades. You’ll see what I mean when you take a look at the images below…

It helps that this pair are ridiculously good looking, like a pair of Hollywood film stars just destined to be together. But it’s clear that the pair are completed besotted with one another which makes me smile from ear to ear.

There’s so many things I love about this big day – from Sam’s voluminous white peony bouquet and sleek and sophisticated Caroline Castigliano gown to the sage green bridesmaid dresses and off-white table centrepieces. Oh and they got married at Babington House too which always looks sublime whatever the season.

I have a feeling that you folks will like this ‘I Do’ as much as I do.

The Perfect Romantic Italian Garden Dinner Party.

Marcelle-And-Joe

Marcelle and Joe’s wedding is a little bit blinking special. Set amongst the beautiful surroundings of Borgo Santo Pietro in Tuscany, this beautiful twosome partied on down until the dawn began to rise the next day.

For me, this wedding is completely refreshing. Marcelle chose to forgo the traditional wedding dress style in favour of a super sleek and contemporary creation from Tom Ford accessorised only by a glamorous wrist cuff and off-white bouquet. Just wait until you see the architectural back detailing on her frock!

And that’s not the only thing that has me swooning. Ever the enthusiast for well designed table settings, this Tuscan affair has me reaching for the ‘Pin It’ button. There are candles and herbs and rustic table runners and it all works so beautifully yet so cost-effectively too.

And the guests…well if the photos at the end of the night are anything to go by, then it’s clear that they had a darned good time!

More Than Meets The Eye

Cover-Image
Faye & Coops both work with Derren Brown, who was also a guest at this wedding. Relaxed, fun and gorgeous pretty much sums up their big day and they also lived by the RMW Mantra of “Your Day Your Way” choosing to do their own thing rather than play by the wedding rules.

Faye and Coops photographer Steve Gerrard is an old friend of Team RMW, when not shooting weddings he can usually be found shooting pop and rock stars so he’s used to rubbing up next to a celebrity or too… But after this wedding Derren Brown mentioned him in a tweet and temporarily crashed his site. Having had a good look through these amazing images I can understand why.

In Lavender Fields.

charingandpony

Well this is rather pretty isn’t it?

Super cute couple Charing & Pony decided that they wanted to use lovely old England for their pre-wedding shoot.

They both love picture-postcard villages and Charing loves flowers – so the village of Castle Combe and the fields of Mayfield were the perfect location for them.

I love that Charing and photographer Sofia Plana totally used the pre-wedding shoot as an excuse to create a gorgeous cake table, literally covered in fresh and vibrant blooms.

I also love that Charing & Pony went full on wedding mode for their outfit choices and wore a suit and a Bridal gown. Any excuse to wear a wedding dress for another day is absolutely fine by me!
