When Emma and Tim started to plan their wedding they knew that they wanted to provide a great feast for their guests. Originally thinking about a traditional country wedding their heads were turned by South Place, a contemporary London venue with a great reputation for food. Emma bought a little taste of the country to this inner city soirée with her choice of natural and delicate flowers, a vision realised with help from Willow florist.
When South Place earned a Michelin Star in the run up to their big day, Emma and Tim knew everything had fallen nicely into place!

There is something very ‘other worldly’ about Julia and Grant’s engagement shoot. It’s like they’ve disappeared to another planet – honestly, it sounds crazy, but when you look at the images, you’ll see exactly what I mean!
The light and colour captured in the images is incredible – soft golds, bright yellows and azure blues.
The scenery is also magnificent, I mean how can you beat a coast line that records 185 million years of the Earth’s history?! It’s truly spectacular.
I’m also really hoping that we get to see the wedding photos so we can see how Julia styles her cute bob…and judging by her outfit for the shoot – I’m pretty sure she’ll be wearing something delicious for her wedding day too.
The whole shoot really is dreamy, so I’ll stop waffling and let the pictures from James Green do the talking.
Well then, isn’t this a sophisticated and modern wedding and a half. Amy and Andy make the perfect city chic couple, all sleek silhouettes and colour pop brights. The concert room at St Georges Hall which held the ceremony is absolutely breathtaking, so grand and opulent.
The flowers! must mention – absolutely AMAZE, I want them in my house. Now please if at all possible. You’ve also got to love a bride who takes inspiration from our very own DIY projects, this big day is elegant in its simplicity but that’s not to say you can’t involve a little craft to make things personal and unique.
Did I mention the bouquet?
I’m going to be totally honest here, I’ve always thought of Portugal as being a bit… Dull. The straight laced older sibling of crazy young tear-away Spain… With it’s Algarve – favoured destination of the moderately affluent over tanned middle aged sun-seeker. I found out how wrong I was last month when I had the opportunity to stay for a few days at Four Seasons, Lisbon.
As it turned out Lisbon is one of the coolest and most vibrant cities I’ve visited in a long time and is the perfect curve ball choice for a wedding abroad, honeymoon or even high class hen or stag do holiday.

If you love rustic, pretty weddings full of covetable details – then you are going to love this morning’s wedding. Alanna and Dane chose to marry in the Cotswolds and held their reception at the idyllic Hyde Barn.
They went with a beautiful pastel pink, pale green and ivory colour scheme. The pair handcrafted the majority of the rustic details for their big day and it was clearly worth it – everything just looks so perfectly presented.
Alanna’s girls wore pale pink gowns by RMW favourites, twobirds. The different styles suit each girl perfectly and add a lovely Grecian elegance to proceedings. Alanna herself looks divine in the lace topped ‘Samantha’ by Sassi Holford. I love her metallic sash too.
It would also seem that the naked cake trend isn’t going anywhere. And quite frankly we hope it stays forever! Anything that looks that delicious is fine by us and I know today’s example will have you wanting cake for breakfast…
Just in case you thought that’s what the underlying tone of this post was… I wanted to confirm that we are absolutely NOT using a hot American actor as a visual marketing ploy to try and make you vote for us to win The Best Wedding Blog category in the Cosmpolitan Blog Awards 2014.
As if we would ever do such a shamefaced thing. Obviously we want you to vote for Rock My Wedding because you think we are the most super duper amazing and best wedding blog in the whole of the United Kingdom. Or in fact The. World. And not because we made your Friday afternoon infinitely more attractive with a certain Mr Gosling.
Turns out we also tell giant fibs.
I don’t think I can think of a more perfect wedding for a Friday. This pretty big day is set in a fairytale castle, with a fuchsia pink and Cadbury purple colour scheme, lots of pretty card butterfly details and is literally brimming with smiley, happy people.
I promise, it will put a smile on your face.
Emma and Kevin held their wedding at the magnificent Berkeley Castle, parts of which date from the 12th Century. Just imagine all of past hearts that have been won in such a place!! The castle just looks so atmospheric and grand in the images from Joseph Hall.
I suppose if you get married in a castle – then a Princess dress is definitely called for…Emma’s choice of Chardonnay by Maggie Soterro is perfect and looks absolutely beautiful on her.
So, if you’re sitting comfortably, then we’ll begin. Once upon a time there was a girl named Emma…
Hi friends! It feels like an age since my last post, but I have so enjoyed reading my fellow RMW real brides stories over the last month. They are such a lovely lot & I’m so looking forward to the next year with them! Today I’d like to share with you the ideas behind our wedding day, with a little bit of back story to help you understand why it’s going to be so perfect for us.
Ever since we got engaged back in November, Scott & I have been discussing what our ideal wedding day would involve. Our biggest decision, Scotland or England, had been tackled and decided on very early on. Ever since moving almost 3 years ago, I’ve been fully in love with this city. Actually though, I loved it long before I lived here, I’ve known it for many years.
When I was a little girl, my favourite person in the world, my aunty Gwen, lived here, so I visited often and it was always a magical, vibrant, full-of-life city to me. I used to tell my family that one day I would live here. Life normally tends to catch up on childhood dreams for most people (I still can’t believe I’m not the next Francine Pascal, aka the greatest author in the world known for Sweet Valley Kids/Twins/High/University!) but fate obviously had other ideas for me, so even though I thought I was settled in Edinburgh for good, I suddenly found myself moving to London and living out my childhood dreams at (the grand-old-past-it age of) 25.
