Julie’s hair is immense. A half up, half down beehive. It looks incredible, I am more than a little jealous.
With a grey colour pallette and subtle accents of yellow – the shoes are so cute – this wedding is so fresh and inviting.
It brings you awesome wedding transport, a delicate daffodil within a beautiful bouquet and a ruddy lovely story of a joyous wedding planning experience. Oh, and there is a bit of butt grabbing…we all know how I feel about this. Such a super in love couple! Julie also gives you a great list of suppliers that she worked with to make her wedding dreams come true.
So, without further ado…
A Fairytale Venue
Julie The Bride:I did some research on the internet and made a shortlist of possible venues. The first venue we looked at was Sandhole Oak Barn and it was just beautiful. A wedding barn on a farm…overlooking a lake! The barn itself was huge with so much light and stunning views. It was simply perfect for our rustic country wedding. It felt as though we were miles from nowhere, so peaceful apart from the geese on the lake! The venue was completely exclusive which is exactly what we wanted and another big plus for us was having accommodation on site for guests to stumble back to after the party!
18 B&B rooms and a gorgeous bridal cottage, with breakfast served in the farm house over looking the lake- we knew we wanted to spend time with our guests the morning after the wedding.… View the full post.
This is rustic…but done a little differently. Karla and Pat married at Stokbridge Farm in Sherborn, Dorset. It was the first venue Karla looked at and it ticked all the boxes. She wanted something magically rustic and she got it.
There are so many sweet details and I love the seating plan and cute lavender favours.
Karla tells the story better than me…so here goes…
Karla The Bride: I saw one of Patrick’s friends get married in a blue sequin dress and knew at that moment that I didn’t want to wear white. I decided that I wanted a timeless look reminiscent of 1940′s Hollywood glamour. I have a pear shape and wanted a dress that hugged my hips and made me look like Jessica Rabbit! My dress was the Winter Kate Limited Edition Nicole Dress in Pink, designed by Nicole Richie. I got it for a quarter of the price on Outnet.com. It was a dusty rose colour with tailored paneling. A distinctive feature was the fishtail. I wanted my dress to be catwalk moment.
A Little Lace
I wore a lace cover from Etsy. I wanted something white for the ceremony. I had a quicksand dusty pink rose in my hair. I’m half Latin-American so I wanted to have a slightly Hispanic look. I wore a third generation Rose gold bangle, my mum’s pearl earring and a necklace my dad gave me.
The first thing that struck me when RMW reader Ruth submitted her W-day was the too-cool-for-school colour pop. I LOVE it. And her gorgeous glossy locks (think L’Oreal advertisement). Oh and just generally all of the unique decor details, contemporary styling and the fact that everyone seemed to have a thoroughly good time…
I swear to you folks, there are so many steal-for-yourself ideas here that I wish I had my own big day to plan.
And a vat full of whatever shampoo Ruth uses. Obviously.
Happy Monday lovelies.
A Polished Edge
After booking a hair and make up artist in plenty of time before the big day I was faced with a bit of a nightmare when he cancelled on me a few months before. After ringing about 20 others who were all booked up, our wonderful photographers came to the rescue and recommended the amazingly talented Tally Bookbinder. She’s done make up for everyone from Take That to Elle magazine and she was brilliant at keeping me nice and calm on the morning of the wedding.
I really wanted to still look like me (just on a very good day!) so I went for a relaxed look of loose waves and a glowing mix of browns and a flick of eyeliner to give it a polished edge.
Inspired By Audrey
Shoes were so tricky, I’d definitely recommend brides to set off on this task as soon as possible as it’s so important to get the colour right, leave time to try them on with your dress and get a comfortable flattering heel height.… View the full post.
The W-day of Gordon and Victoria-Rose is the perfect mix of pretty, chic and vintage-inspired. Combining both Gordon’s Canadian roots and Victoria’s British heritage, this couple made sure their big day was full of personal touches and significant details.
There was no formal wedding party dress code for this Edinburgh affair which for me just adds to the unique aesthetic and relaxed atmosphere of the day. And the bride’s original (and beautiful) 1950′s floral print tea dress was fifteen quid off of ebay.
I kid you not.
Coping with last minute nightmares, family illness and keeping to a limited budget Victoria is one hell of an inspiring bride.
A friend found a flier for Miss Dixiebelle’s in Glasgow who also have a shop in Edinburgh. They sell ‘What Katie Did’ lingerie and Besame make up products which I buy quite often and which made me feel they might be good for a trial styling. The trial was really encouraging, I chose a style from the 1940s/1950s and Anke went for a 1960s up-do, both with make-up to match. The other bridesmaids all lived in different places outside of Edinburgh and the UK, but trusted mine and Anke’s opinion. On the day, the two stylists were amazing and they did all 4 bridesmaids, my mum and me.
The makeup artist was not the same person as at the trial, and I did not know she was going to be replaced, which caused a little panic as she was not using the Besame products I had chosen, and the makeup was not the same as I would have liked, but I didn’t really worry about it.… View the full post.
We have some core values here at Rock My Wedding, and for those of you less familar with our ethos, (where have you been!) let me spell it out for you:
- We are all about having Your Day Your Way.
- We are all about love – Family, friends and the person you want to spend the rest of your life with.
- We are all about the pretty
That’s it really, you’ll find these basic Rock My Wedding elements threaded through every single picture and paragraph on these pages, and today is no exception. We have classic RMW, but with a significant difference. There is no groom.
Jenny and Kelly got married at Amante Beach Club in Ibiza in May 2011. Today we are all in for a treat, it’s a summer holiday, an exclusive party, and a celebration of love all rolled in to one neat destination wedding bundle.
Nick Tucker has taken some amazing shots that perfectly illustrate Jenny’s tale of her big day with Kelly…
I knew that I didn’t want to wear a dress, as I don’t in my day to day life, but I wanted something feminine and a bit different. After months of searching for the perfect outfit, I gave up looking and designed my own playsuit. I was recommended a great seamstress and took my design to her and she turned it into a reality. I went out and chose the fabric myself from Broadwick Silks, and bought some pretty vintage pearl buttons for the sleeves from Etsy.… View the full post.
