We’ve got a gorgeous pastel infused, rustic barn wedding for you this afternoon, courtesy of the lovely Matt Ethan photography. Bride Nicola is rocking a bardot neckline Charlotte Balbier number – make sure you read her advice about trying on dresses – never have truer words been spoken.
As well as looking like a total babe, Nicola crafted and styled lots of the elements of this pretty wedding day herself. And the final result is simply lovely. I promise you’re going to love it…
Tell me you haven’t taken a second glance at bride Lucy and thought she resembles Kate Middleton. Even her composure is Kate-esque, and doesn’t she look a vision in her JLM Couture Ti Adora gown. The three quarter sleeves, beaded belt and lace underlay skirt is so elegant and suits her down to the ground.
The rest of the celebrations are just as timeless and traditional, starting with a Catholic ceremony at Sacred Heart church in Wimbledon, conducted by the same priest who married groom Dom’s parents. Que a short journey to the reception in a white Figaro vintage car for an adorable après-ski themed reception at Cuddington Golf Club, with alpine evergreen lining the beams and little wooden skis in the flower arrangements. Plus how can I forget the floral initials framing the couple on the top table, such a gorgeous idea.
Matt Penberthy Photography was definitely the best person to capture this glorious wedding, taking the couple off for some truly breathtaking golden hour portraits, as well as all those delicious details for you to pore over and pin.
I’m obsessed with gorgeous homes on archipelagos after watching this programme on the BBC. Seriously, can you think of anything more romantic or beautiful than living somewhere you have to access by ice-blue water?! And imagine how snuggly and secluded it must be in the Winter time! Anyway, the reason I’m waffling about waterside venues is that Sandra and Immi held their wedding at Sandra’s parents gorgeous archipelago home. I think speedboat must be one of the most impressive bridal party entrances I’ve ever seen!
Gorgeous fine art images come from Cecelina Photography, whose style reflects the light and airy vibe of this wedding to perfection.
Amy’s veil is rather spectacular, wouldn’t you agree? I can’t stop looking at the image above, Paul Fuller has captured it at the perfect moment – the angle, the fall of the fabric, it’s just divine. And we can completely understand why Amy had her heart set on that Charlie Brear veil before she even knew what dress she wanted!
It’s lovely to share a glamorous wedding with you all, especially with the boys in tails, they look so smart and if you can’t get dressed up for your wedding day, then when can you?!
I’ve been looking forward to blogging Becky & James’ big day for a while for lots of reasons – there are cardboard cat cutouts (!) an animal print wedding cake, it’s at Preston Court (epic wedding venue) AND Becky is wearing a gorgeous polka dot gown by one of our favourite designers, Katya Katya Shehurina. Then there’s the coral Bridesmaids dresses, the colourful lanterns adorning the ceiling of their dining room, the carousel and Groom James’ dapper outfit! Honestly, every image by Miki Photography seems to have captured another fabulous detail.
The whole day is full of fun and frolics and it looks like everyone had a lovely time. The couple held a BBQ the following day too, which is a great way to spend some more time with family and friends in a less formal way. Plus, as every Bride will tell you, the day flies past and you never get to spend as much time with people as you’d like. If only wedding days had extra hours…
I don’t normally work on the real weddings but today’s is just that little bit special. You see it is my baby sister’s wedding. A day full of so much love and laughter that I couldn’t not share it with you.
Abi looked beyond stunning in her Amanda Wyatt Natalia gown which was chosen to compliment my new brother-in-law’s military dress. Seriously smart. And you will probably spot my two little girls in there too. You’ve got to love a tiny tutu.
I can’t say enough about how amazing Cripps Barn was, just fabulous, and the perfect back drop to the hours of crafting, planning and baking. Everything came together to create an elegant day with just the right amount of fun. It was a truly amazing day and I hope you love it as much as we all did. Enjoy!
This morning’s lovely wedding really warms the heart because it was such a team effort from family and friends – almost every element was borrowed or crafted, which meant that Hannah and Dan’s wedding had an understated and laid back vibe – but it was still ever so beautiful! The gorgeous rustic floral arrangements were created by one of the couples friends, which meant that Hannah got to enjoy trips to the flower market and could be involved every step of the way. And the couple gave guests home made honey as favours, what a delicious treat.
Hannah’s gown was a great find in Monsoon, whose gorgeous Bridal collection you can see right here on Rock My Wedding. A fabulous option for those who don’t want to fork out thousands of pounds on a dress, but still want unusual design, stunning details and craftmanship you can trust – I mean just look at Hannah’s dress…it’s one of the loveliest I’ve ever seen and suits her down to the ground.
This is a wedding for all of you pastel, afternoon tea loving ladies out there, held in the most romantic of settings! The Secret Garden Kent is beautiful. Think walled gardens, gravelled paths flanked by wild blooms and secret corners covered by hanging trellises. Penny’s choice of soft pink and yellow blooms just makes it look even more pretty.
There’s a particularly impressive cake too, made by Penny’s best friend, who is clearly a very talented lady. I’m also loving the Cocktail Cart which is brimming with rather delicious looking drinks. I can’t promise that this wedding won’t make you hungry (and crave a cocktail in the sunshine) but I can promise that you’re going to love all of the pastel details…ready to take a look?
