I have to admit that as soon as I clapped eyes on Selena and James’ wedding, I immediately felt an affinity with this beautiful bride. For one, Selena was an October bride who woke up to gloriously blue skies and sunshine (like me) and for another she adores fruit cake as much as I do.
Sadly I think we’re in the minority on the cake front.
And when I saw the sweet dachshunds on James and Selena’s wedding stationery a little bit of me died and went to heaven.
And I haven’t even got started on the dress or THAT headpiece…
Selena The Bride: Even though we live in Shanghai, we weren’t tempted by the idea of having the wedding over in China – we wanted all our friends and family, who we only get to see a couple of times a year to be there, and loved the idea of a quintessentially English setting in the autumn, just as the leaves were turning and the nights were starting to draw in.
We got married at All Saints Church in Thurlestone – the local church in the tiny village on the Devonshire coast where I grew up. The reception was at Buckland Tout Saints, a beautiful Queen Anne country house complete with an Atonement-esque fountain and a sweeping staircase.
As my parents still live in Thurlestone, it also meant I could get ready at home, looking out over the bay, with the family dachshunds ambling around at our feet – much more relaxing than an unfamiliar hotel room.… View the full post.
We know that there is a lot of love for the kilt out there in the RMW community, so todays offering of pretty should certainly satisfy. We also have some really ace paper goods and some wicked DIY table names.
Carmel and Adrian married last summer in Scotland on a farm half an hour outside of Edinburgh with a lakeside ceremony and a barn reception.
Carmel The Bride: I got my dress from David Fielden at the HQ in South Kensington. Although everyone told me that part of wedding dress shopping was to try on lots of different styles first, I knew what I wanted and what would suit me as I’m short and petite but I do have curves so I knew I needed something slinky and simple enough to not drown me. I looked at designers with that kind of style and started with David Fielden.
The cut of his slinkier dresses is unique to any others that I tried on in that they were an A-line cut with a slight fishtail, and suited me much more than the ‘straight down’ styles. When I tried it on David Fielden was actually in the store, which I didn’t realise until he came up to me and said: “Yes, that one.”
Tiny Treasure Trove
Lydia and Jack got married on Rock My Wedding home turf… The good old Midlands. The service was in Gornal Wood at the church Lydia had known all of her life.
I love a wedding with an urban feel and this one certainly has that, but in there amongst the concrete we have the green pop of fields and the blue pop of Jack’s suit. The colour and vibrance jump off the screen and little details like the hanging hearts and paper lanterns really shine through
I am also loving the trees that were brought into the reception venue. A little bit of outside greenery invading and breaking up the stark lines of internal space… Just call me Kevin McCloud.
Lydia The Bride: Jack and I did the whole venue search for our reception, and wanted to go for a place where there was enough space for around 180 guests whilst not costing the earth. We ended up choosing a secondary school, which I was slightly concerned about, as I didn’t want my wedding day to be like having a school dinner! However, the school is a brand new building with a wall full of large windows overlooking a nice green view, with lots of light and space; the risk certainly paid off-phew!
My dress was a Maggie Sottero number called Darlene which I purchased from Go Bridal in Birmingham. I always thought I’d go for a lacy style dress, but as soon as Darlene was on I thought ‘this is the one’ and, much to my amazement, it was only the 2nd dress I had tried on!… View the full post.
And so, as it is fashion week this morning we present you with a bride who has more than a touch of elegance. No more so than when sporting a cute little shrug that you can spy in more than a few of these beautiful shots taken by Summer Love Photography.
This was a wedding on a modest budget but Adele our bride shows that high street can still mean high fashion. We are big fans of mixing a bit of woolwear in with your bridal and she pulls the look off perfectly.
Adele and Matt married in the Norfolk market town of Swaffham with a ceremony at the beautiful Church of St. Peter & St. Paul and reception at Breckland Meadows Touring Park.
Too Much Choice
When it came to the dress, I knew that I didn’t want to spend thousands. For me, I wanted comfort and simplicity and to be safe in the knowledge that if it got ruined from too much partying, it wouldn’t matter. Not long after Matt proposed I had trekked into some bridal shops in Norwich with my best friend to get inspiration. The beautiful window displays and gorgeous array of dresses were certainly enticing but, once in the shop I found it really overwhelming – there was just too much choice and the prices quite frankly scared me for our small wedding budget. So, I decided to have a look at some ‘off the peg’ dresses which, in many cases, proved to be just a beautiful as the more expensive bridal shop dresses.… View the full post.
