Proud. That’s how Alex described her emotions as her brand spanking new husband stood to address the room brimming with nearest and dearest. I must take this opportunity to say that we at RMW are proud to have had Alex as one of our real brides.
Her tales has never failed to be entertianing, honest and always written from the heart. And this last bumper installment is arguably her best work yet.
Food Glorious Food!
We went back up and before we had time to even speak to everyone it was time for dinner yay! So, we were announced as Mr and Mrs M and took to our seats, which by the way is super difficult in a huge dress and veil and it took some time to get sat down.
The speeches began and my godfather started it off with a lovely and touching story of me growing up and of our favourite memories, perfect. My sister then did her tale of my childhood and everything since and that too was just perfect and had plenty of people laughing, especially me! Then, my gorgeous groom took to his feet and did me super proud with his speech, the right amount of jokes, compliments and thank yous, I have never been more proud.… View the full post.
This afternoon I want to say a very special Hello and welcome (back!) to one of the RMW real brides Alex who is now….offically married!
I’m sure Alex won’t mind me saying that she has never been a lover of the camera – in fact she confessed to having serious “face hate” issues on various occasions, which of course none of us could understand. The lady has one of the prettiest mugs I have ever had the pleasure of being extremely close up to and actually makes me kill myself laughing with her one-liners and continuous sunny disposition.
So lovelies, I would like you all to spare a few minutes of your time to leave Madam Alexandra and Mr M some serious love at the end of this post, it’s a brave (and time consuming) task sharing your deepest darkest W-day secrets with the RMW community as a real bride and essentially sharing the results of all that hard work is the ultimate end goal… And this one is a cracker, I laughed until I cried.
Oh and the face hate thing? these images by Especially Amy definitely prove otherwise.
Enjoy you gorgeous lot.
So, here I am, nearly two months into married life, sat watching cupcake challenge which is due to my new obsession with baking (just call me a stepford wife!) whilst my wonderful amazing and gorgeous husband cooks our tea. Married life is so fricking awesome and I can’t imagine ever not being this happy to be a wife and a Mrs to the man of my dreams.… View the full post.

An online Bridal Accessory store stocking everything from head pieces to shoes, Liberty in Love can kit you out from head to toe for your W-day.

Of course, we love a birthday here at Rock My Wedding, almost as much as we love a wedding and set about finding out how we could help! And instead of us helping her, Siu wanted to celebrate by giving stuff away! For free! To our very lovely readers!

Welcome back for more of Naomi’s style and our take on glamorous modern Bridal. Each of the girls wore two dresses so we could play with some different looks and with Naomi we made two very different choices….
Look One – Frill Fabulous
First up, we love a frill so we tried Naomi in this Essense of Australia figure hugging dress with a frill fabulous mermaid bottom. Not only did it LOVE her curves but it was feminine, sexy and romantic all rolled into one, whilst being undeniably modern.
With her soft waves and curls this look was all about feminine glamour, with the soft waves complimenting the flowing lines of the dress.
We used the main staircase in Hampton Manor for getting some shots of the dress full length and fabulous and enjoying those a.mazing frills, before we headed out into the garden to rock it up a bit.
The leather was a last minute addition (and who can blame us – she was freezing!) but just looked so totally rock’n’roll we had to make a feature of it… Just goes to show, in a bride this pretty with such a feminine look, a tough edge brings the look up to date and make a great prop for your portrait shots.
For accessories we kept this look super pretty with a side band from Liberty in Love’s own brand, the Cristalle Side Tiara band which is an absolute steal at £80.00. Here at RMW we don’t do Matchy-matchy so instead we looked for something co-ordinating and picked out the marquise shaped stones in the band and went for small drop earrings and a matching bracelet both called ‘Boucheron’ by Stephanie Brown.… View the full post.
I’m pretty sure one of the most difficult things to find during my wedding planning was appropriate headwear. As with everything wedding, there’s always a multitude of options, but when you know what you don’t want rather than what you do, all the options are irrelevant until you find the right thing.
For my big dress, big church wedding I had initially though flowers only… nobody is searching for a Jordan-esque tiara monstrosity after all are they?! Flowers are modern, pretty and low key… but my head was turned one day by a tiara and I surprised myself with the admission that my dress and my face for that matter, suited it immensely. I had to put aside my preconceptions on style, what was modern or I didn’t want (ahem, that had previously been anything ‘tiara-esque’) and go looking for something perfectly me.
If a real heirloom headpiece is what you are after, there are sadly not many options. I bought my ‘Bandeau’ from Andrew Prince, jeweller to the Royal Family and famous for the quality for his costume jewellery. I had not seen anything similarly beautiful until I heard about Louis Mariette.
Louis Mariette, milliner/designer extraordinaire (and ex-Britain’s Next Top Model judge) has an amazing collection of headpieces that fashion-forward brides will just totally love. Lady Gaga, Lily Cole and Kate Moss are just a few of the names that have worn his designs… His Bejeweled collection will be available at Liberty in Love from the end of November.… View the full post.
