We have a delicious destination for you today folks. And they don’t come much more delicious than the Chateau Rigaud, Mouliets et Villemartin in south-west France.
Situated between Bordeaux and Bergerac it was the perfect location for Rock My Wedding readers Kate and Greg to tie the knot as they both have a love of all things French.

Married In France
Greg and I have always really loved France – the food, the wine, skiing in the mountains! – and have spent loads of holidays there. We’d always had an idea of getting married in France, more laid back, the lovely food/wine, having a holiday with our friends and family, while still only asking them to take a short flight to get there. We looked at six venues in Hertfordshire (where we’re from and where we would have got married should we have gone for the UK) and six in France. The French options just blew us away! We ended up hiring Chateau Rigaud for four nights and the day before the wedding our guests went wine tasting or canoeing on the Dordogne River (in glorious 30 degree sunshine!) and for a meal on the river’s banks the evening before.
By the time the wedding came people had got to know each other quite well and everyone was really relaxed. We then had everyone back for Sunday brunch and for a dip in the pool – the perfect end to a perfect weekend!… View the full post.
Our final (and I’m guessing favourite for many of you) Dolly……. Madam Daydream. And as much as we can turn our hand to the Rock Star/Pop Star styling I think this is where Rock My Wedding excels – the PRETTY.
There’s no denying that this look has some gorgeous gowns but actually, what we really wanted to show you guys is how to accessorise on a teeny tiny budget. We realise not everyone has a W-day money tree growing in their back yard ( oh and if you do can we come over for tea?) and more often than not the “finishing touches” get left until well, exactly then……the finish. The point at which Mr bank account is flashing an angry shade of red and shouting at your subconscious NOT. TO. BUY. ANY. MORE. JEWELLERY.
Or maybe that’s just what happens to me.
Not just for rockers the William Chambers Camillia headpiece also comes in this more traditionally bridal shade of creamy ivory, perfect if the thought of real blooms in amongst your tresses doesn’t appeal.
The dramatically precious earrings from Glitzy Secrets are exactly the right mix of relaxed romanticism, a steal at £32.00 and the colour-pop coral bracelet is even more bargainous at just £3.00 from New Look.
Let’s talk knitwear. Cute yellow cardigan type knitwear. Perfection for the Spring bride who may want a little bit of a cover up to keep out the chill of the evening air or just to update her W-day look from day to night.… View the full post.
