Sweet Thing.


There are some very fluttery eyelashes for you today, along with a little bit of vintage Chanel, a fabulous fur jacket and the ever gorgeous Eden gown by Jenny Packham. Jane and Duncan married at Love Lust Member Iscoyd Park. All the weddings we feature from here seem to have the most beautiful, atmospheric outdoor shots – have a look at our own Lolly’s amazing wedding at Iscoyd here.
Jane’s theme of a romantic spring day really comes through in the colourful mix of tulips and roses and in the amazing cake – it looks absolutely scrumptious. Apparently Bride Jane is an avid RMW reader and used us lots for inspiration – all the best Brides do!


Modern Touches And Elegant History

Jane The Bride: We were not sure exactly what we wanted in a venue before we stepped into Iscoyd Park. Immediately, we were struck by the beauty of the venue but also the welcoming hospitality of its owner and host Phil Godsal. Phil has created an amazing flow to the house – making the whole day seamlessly fit together. The perfect mix of modern touches married with its elegant history – make it an exceptional place to be. The location was also perfect as Duncan grew up nearby and it’s also in easy reach of Ireland for my family. It was the first and only venue we went to but we knew that it was the one. The only available weekend date they had for that year was only six months away, it didn’t take us long to confirm…

Love On Top.

John Day Wedding Photography

I can’t help but feel a connection with this morning’s couple – Sophie and David – since they held their wedding at Wethele Manor, a venue that I actually attended a wedding at only two weeks ago. I’ve experienced firsthand the rolling lawns, the sweet courtyard and the converted barns so I know just how wonderful it would have been to have been a guest at the wedding of this beautiful pair.

And it is beautiful.

From Sophie’s super chic Rosa Clara dress to her gorgeous auburn headed chignon and her bountiful bouquet to the sweetest maids and gambols on the lawn to the setting sun. I promise you’ll love it.

Let’s take a look.

Wethele Manor

Sophie The Bride:Our reception was at Wethele Manor, only a few miles from where we married. It’s a farmhouse with beautiful converted barns and a marquee. We chose it because you can tailor the day to how you want it and there is so much outdoor space. There are ten bedrooms in the main farmhouse so our close family and friends were able to stay the night and join us for breakfast the next morning.

Friends And Neighbours

My friend Angie from the Ginger Lily salon in Kenilworth has been mine and my mum’s hairdresser for several years so she was always going to do my hair. I knew I wanted an up-do which complemented the dress and veil. After showing her some photos she came up with the final creation and I loved it!… View the full post.

Can’t Take My Eyes Off You…..part 1

Each of the RMW team will pick out something entirely different from each real wedding we feature as their “favourite detail” or their “favourite moment”, I 100% guarantee it. That’s not a bad thing of course, it simply goes to show that we are all individuals with varying requirements for what makes us tick. Much like you gorgeous lot in fact, and why we endeavour to showcase as much variety as we possibly can.

When I first saw Lucy and Chris’s Big Day it was the dress that first caught my attention, so swishy, so elegant, so glamorous. And then it was the blooms. Peach, pink, lilac and spring green, a ray of sunshine all tied up in one ribbon wrapped bouquet.

Of course all that pretty is easy to admire, and as much as I love the obvious aesthetics, my favourite part of this London soiree has got to be when Lucy is walking up the ailse. The way Chris is looking at her. The anticipation of Lucy looking at him. The way they look at each other …..

A 1930′s inspired Natural Look

For my hen party ‘Emma Dennis’ did all my friends hair and make-up for a 1930s themed evening. She did a fab job so I asked her to do my wedding hair and make-up. I went for a fairly natural look so I looked like an improved version of ‘me’ it was definitely worth having a make-up artist because it stayed on all day and night!View the full post.

Maid in Heaven

So, while we had the lovely ladies together last week we thought we might as well squeeze a little bit more out of the day… nothing like setting yourself a challenge! We spend a considerable amount of time here at Rock My Wedding talking about bringing maids fashion up to date and making your best ladies look a million dollars. We love a colour scheme as much as the next person but we also like individuality, unique style and a bit of good old fashioned affordability so we thought we would put together a couple of looks to show you how good ideas that are often seen in shoots can look in real life.

We put the styling together on a very last minute basis, used a combination of the girls own dresses and our own clothes and a bit of sheer luck when it came to fit and theme but I don’t think the results were half bad?

First up, in keeping with this season block colour trends, how about mixing your brights?

Block Colour

If you’ve been living under a rock, then you may not have heard, but we’re certainly taking no credit for breaking this trend… Spring/Summer 2011 is all about block colour. And that means juicy or primary brights mixed and matched. If you’re a little shy then you can add in a spot of neutral, this look certainly isn’t for the faint of heart and neither are our girls…

For this part of the shoot, Mahj wore a yellow ‘Sunray’ dress from Girl Meets Dress by Ruth Tarvydas.… View the full post.

Coasting for Chic

The festive season is looming and it’s time to choose a party frock, but it’s also planning season in full swing for the winter brides out there. Todays city chic wedding makes me think of the most stylish maids in cocktail attire, looking and feeling fabulous, but where can you find perfect party frocks, special enough for a Bridesmaids dress, without breaking the bank?

Coast had become a little, dare I say it… predictable for Bridesmaids (and I think I’m allowed to, as my own Bridesmaids wore Coast) but a recent flick through the website left me pleasantly surprised and I just had to share some options for the chicest maids, prettiest parties and general festive flirtations ;)

Navy Nuances

Navy remains one of my all time favourite colours for bridesmaids. Perennially chic, suited to all seasons and just a general all round winner, it’s classic whilst remaining modern.

I’m particularly loving the old gold colours here with Navy, a really subtle and sophisticated pallet suited to the colder months and a hefty dose of city chic.

Quirky Cool

I’m really loving the idea of bridesmaids wearing shorter frocks these days… the short skirt revolution is nothing new, but cocktail styles and grown up maids are a match made in chic heaven…

Though most of these are well suited to a winter months affair, I can see the purple with floral details at a fun summer celebration with jewels tones and bright shoes.

Monochrome Magic

Whilst black is not my favourite shade for a bridesmaid, monochrome is a totally different ball game and there are occasions and settings where it can look timeless, modern and up to date in the style stakes.… View the full post.

Gentle Wild Gothic… Part 1

I am so excited to be sharing this wedding with you today and of course the second part tomorrow. Its a total fashion fest and really for me sums up why I love Rock My Wedding – being able to inspire with Serious Style like this. We’re kicking of with all the fashion and getting to the equally unique decor and reception style tomorrow.

The second reason is that this wedding was photographed by Jon Rouston – one of our earliest sponsors, I’m delighted to be able to finally share some of his stunning photography of an A.mazing wedding. – Thanks Jon!

Rachael and Andy were married on Saturday 10th April at New Life Church Scunthorpe, followed by a reception and evening do at Normanby Hall North Lincolnshire.

A Gentle Gothic Dress

The dress was from The Ivory Bridal Collection in Barton North Lincs (beautiful shop!) I saw it on a mannequin as soon as I walked in and fell in love with it! It had a simple vintage feel and was full of all the unique details I’d been craving for like that of mixed textures & materials, a bit of lace here, netting there, messy but elegant, (it had a slightly gothic feel but in the creamy ivory looked so gentle!)

It was just like nothing like I’d seen anywhere ever and looked so beautiful and I’m the opposite of a silky or bling person, so it felt so me! It was a handmade dress (which would mean mine would be different in all its details to the one I tried on, even better!) It took 6 months to be made and to be shipped over from the designers (Cymbeline) in France.… View the full post.
