Fairly recently Rock My Wedding celebrated it’s third anniversary.
I know. THREE WHOLE YEARS. And my hasn’t it flown by.
And before I begin to explain what this feature is all about I want to ask you a favour….if you enjoy our pages but have never felt the urge/need/desire to comment on a post then could you make today and this one your first? pretty please? with sugar strands and those silver sparkly ball things on top?
We would really REALLY appreciate your feedback and thoughts on our campaign film…..
Yes. Our campaign film. Our AW12 RMB (Rock My Boutique!) official laid-bare finale of our most recent project.
For those of you that don’t know what I’m on about, Rock My Wedding launches its on-line boutique on Monday the 5th November with a selection of limited edition products designed in conjunction with various leading industry suppliers.
The boutique and the design and production of the campaign, is without a doubt, the best thing Team RMW have been involved in thus far. We’re not into own trumpet blowing as a rule (you just end up sounding like an egotistical w*nker) But we are really proud of this, and we hope you gorgeous lot will come inside our blue polka dot bubble of glitter and glee as we do a little dance and some serious clapping and cheering.
We wanted something unique.
And I mean completely unique.
We wanted something fashion and urban and gritty and raw.
But most of all we wanted sexy.… View the full post.
When I landed upon the image of these neon beaded beauties below, I was instantly transported back to my earliest days at school sitting with my playmates stringing simple wooden beads onto coarse woollen strands to make what can be best described as a ‘dog’s dinner’ (read tragic mess).
Obviously the epic bangles and necklaces below are of a far higher quality than my juvenile attempts – I would so rock one of these neon bracelets.
Anyone else care to join me?
The point is however, and I think I speak for most of us when I say that, it’s clear, even from an early age, that we like to adorn ourselves with decorative paraphernalia. Heck, we’ve been tattooing, crowning, encircling, festooning and garlanding our bodies since time began and it’s not likely to stop any time soon either.
It’s not surprising then that there’s a plethora of beautiful bridal jewellery out there. If there’s a day when a woman feels most inclined to bedeck herself with charming adornments then it’s her wedding day.
And whilst there is an abundance of style in traditional pieces, I love how the parameters of what constitutes bridal ‘jewellery’ are now far more relaxed meaning that there really is something for everyone.
My own bridal jewellery journey began when my future mother-in-law handed me her late mother’s prized diamond earrings when the boy and I were first engaged.
They are beautiful. Utterly exquisite. I even got quite emotional when she handed them to me.… View the full post.
…and then all of a sudden I was walking down the aisle. I say walking, I mean clinging on to Nick (legend of a friend) for dear life, heart-booming, knees knocking desperately trying to look composed. And then I arrived at Nick (the soon-to-be husband) and everything was silent and peaceful (which is strange as all our friends and family were belting out Oh Come All Ye Faithful!). And then Nicky (stick with me, this one’s the vicar) welcomed us, married us, advised, encouraged and teased us, prayed for us and blessed us. It was beautiful and poignant, faith-filled and glorious… then the ushers pelted me so hard with my home-made confetti, I thought I was going to fall over!
The rest is a blur of the people that we love, dressed in the colours that I love (oh yes, there was a dress code of “monochrome and metallic”), in the city that we love, celebrating…
I know it’s usually one of us from Rock My Wedding who leads into a real wedding, but those words from Calandre made for such a perfect introduction.
Nick and Calandre married on a sunny Saturday at St Augustine’s Church, South Kensington, London.
Now, back to Calandre…
An Old Family Friend
The Rev Nicky Lee married us. He’s an old family friend, the vicar at our church and he and his wife, Sila, were our marriage prep couple on the Marriage Course.… View the full post.
