In the past we have been a little bit slated (One Jolly Girl – You know who you are!) for not showing enough kiltage on the blog… Well, today we turn the tartan table around. Not only are there kilts, but we will also be revealing what a Scotsman keeps in his sporran…
Kate and Gordon married in August 2012 at the intimate boutique hotel Sanctum on the Green in Berkshire.
We were married in the school holidays as I am a teacher, Gordon is a policeman and had to have a full on meeting with a top bloke in the met to get the time off as it was the closing ceremony of the Olympics! I have to say, considering it was the wettest summer in 100 years we were incredibly lucky with the 30 degree summers day we had!! God knows what we would have done if it had been raining!?
In fact, I heard someone say they were the nicest canapés they’d ever had… I just wish I had tried the deep fried quails egg with truffled hollandaise with edible spoon!!! So annoyed There was always a cocktail and flavoured fizz for me and the girls, it was too much fun!!! In fact, I hear that the mango cosmopolitan was a hit! So very sanctum!!!
Well this is a bit of a long winded one….… View the full post.
Lizzie and Paul married in July 2012. Their ceremony was held at the magnificent Medieval St Mary’s Church in Bitton and a reception at Guyers House in Corsham followed.
The title for our wedding this afternoon comes from Pauls decision to go for tails for his wedding day. As a ‘king of casual’ he decided this was his one opportunity to push the boat out and go super formal. And clearly, he rocked it.
All of the beautiful light of Lizzie and Paul’s July w-day has been captured perfectly by Brett Symes.
I Felt Like A Princess
My dress was called ‘Gracie’ by Suzanne Neville, bought from a wonderful boutique in Clifton Village called The Mews. I knew it was the one as it made me feel like a princess. I looked in the mirror and thought ‘wow’, which very rarely happens!
The staff at The Mews are absolutely fantastic and made the whole experience of choosing a dress really special.
Simple And Elegant
I wanted to keep everything pretty simple and elegant. In terms of hair accessories, I wore a couple of simple diamante clips and a long veil for the ceremony and shortly afterwards.
For jewellery, I bought some lovely diamante drop earrings by Ozzie based designer Stephanie Browne. They arrived from Oz very close to the day! My Mum also lent me her special diamond (real as opposed to the rest of my diamante pieces!) bracelet bought by my Dad for their 30th Wedding anniversary.… View the full post.
Rock My Wedding readers Ange and Pat married in May at Pat’s parents home in Ivy Hatch.
In the garden stood giant tipi tents from Beautiful World Tents in place of the more traditional marquee.
This wedding has a beautiful subtle colour pallette of white and purple with a few other splashes thrown in for good measure. I was fascinated to read that their chosen florist grows all of the flowers and although commits to a colour scheme leaves actual variety choice until the last minute – so that you get the very best flowers that were in bloom on your big day. This adds a nice little element of surprise into the floral mix.
Photogrpahy today is from the truly fantastical (Excuse the man-crush) Phillip Allen – better known as Mister Phill.
You are in for a Tipi treat today folks.
Pretty Vintage Lace
My dress is from Mirror Mirror in Angel and the designer is Cymbeline. I went through numerous bridal stores trying to find the right dress, I had a picture in my mind of a pretty vintage style lace dress. When I tried this one at at Mirror Mirror I knew instantly and the reaction from my mother and brother confirmed it! I also customised the dress slightly by adding a different ribbon sash than what initially came with the dress. I bought the ribbon and Mirror Mirror where able to make the cute bow sash.
I decided to have flowers in my hair, which my lovely florist Jen put together to match the bouquet.… View the full post.
There are a few of my favourite things in today’s wedding. Firstly we have a VW camper van as wedding transport. I am a total sucker for a bit of classic VW action. I. WANT. ONE.
There is also one of the nicest table plans I have seen grace theses polka dotted pages. It’s clearly done, it’s got a hint of retro about it but above all else it is just fantastically well designed. Make sure you keep your eye out for it.
Charlotte and Dave married at Stubton Hall, Newark. Their photographer was Igor Demba
I didn’t look at too many dresses until I found the one. In fact, I thought I had found the right one in the first shop we looked in! I had originally found a corseted dress that I fell in love with but well exceeded the budget. Grudgingly, my Mum took me to some other shops to see if we could find something closer to the budget – and then we found it! A Christina Sposa dress with a sweetheart neckline and an asymmetrical skirt and a train that came out to the side. It was beautiful and I was so happy with my decision.
The Perfect Grip
I wore pearl and diamond earrings and necklace that were my Mum’s – a present from my Dad to her on their 25th Wedding Anniversary, and a pearl bracelet that was also my Mum’s.
After Carla finished my hair we realised that it was missing something, so searched through my maid of honours recent purchases and found a perfect grip with similar beading to the dress – it looked like it had been planned from the start!!… View the full post.
Good morning peeps.
Today we have a mix of influences and a match made in heaven. Nat is Sri Lankan, Adrian is Irish and they married in London…
Prepare for some rich hues, a good dose of colour pop and enough D.I.Y ideas to shake a glue-stick at.
Photography today is by Anna Clarke and what a great job Anna and her husband Simon have made of capturing all of these colours, all of this joy and especially all of the love that just pours from this captivating winter wedding.
A Six Month Engagement
Adrian and I got married on 3rd December 2011, with the wedding service at my home church in New Eltham, London and the reception at Selsdon Park Hotel, South Croydon. So many of the church congregation I had known as I grew up came as well as helped at the service, and it was wonderfully personal having friends and family praying for us. We’d met in 2004 volunteering in Uganda and started dating five years later, flying back and forth between Dublin and Oxford, and neither of us wanted to delay starting our life together so kept our engagement under six months.
I’d always imagined having an outdoor tipi wedding but as our wedding was going to be in December, this was just a ridiculous notion considering British winter weather, so we opted for practical! There’s a part of me that still longed for the tipi, but on the day, absolutely none of that mattered once we actually got married in the church!… View the full post.
Mike and Esmè Married at St Gregory’s Church in Seaton and had their reception at River Cottage.
That’s right folks – The River Cottage made famous by Hugh Fearnley “kill-a-rabbit-with-my-bear-hands-for-breakfast” Whittingstall!
Prepare yourselves for a visual feast as we head down to Dorset in the South West.
The magnificent Sam Gibson was on hand with a box of lenses to capture this rural delight in all its glory.
River Cottage Hq was the most amazing venue. The location, staff and food were relaxed and overall the place had an amazing wow factor.
Cat our wedding Co-ordinator was a super star, from the moment we walked down the wobbly hill to River Cottage we knew this was our place. Cat was always on the end of the phone or email when needed, but also was very relaxed about the day and helped us choose the food giving us ideas on how to use River Cottage for the day. We had the speeches outside in the garden with champagne and canapés, then the yurt for coffee after the meal.
The chef gave a toast to the guests explaining how the spit roast lamb was prepared and how he and the team had prepared the meal. They used veg from my father’s farm which was great to incorporate into our day. My dad doesn’t normally like courgettes but did on this day – the way the chef had cooked them, delicious!
The staff where so good on the day and so happy, the guests again commented on how good all the staff were.… View the full post.
