Adding a little romance to your weekend couldn’t be easier with this burgundy, blush and sage wedding inspiration. Full of fabulous floral, a dreamy Bardot lace wedding dress and the rustic charm of Patrick’s Barn in Sussex.
It doesn’t take much to make good styling sing, and this gorgeous minimalist wedding is proof that less can most certainly be more. The monochrome colour palette, with grey and amber accents, is modern and timeless in equal measure, and allows the amazing space at Sunbeam Studios to shine whilst also creating an intimate atmosphere. The guests – who flew in from all over the world to celebrate with our Hong Kong-based couple – must have greatly enjoyed the elegance of the occasion, whilst also letting their hair down to music by GoldBeat (booked via handpicked RMW supplier Alive Network). Oh, and plus points for the piñata, which was clearly a hit with the kids (and, ahem, big kids for that matter).
This is surely one of the simplest but most effective table plan ideas: using beer bottles as both vases and as a seating chart. (Useful and beautiful. Marie Kondo would be so proud). Plus, it’s FUN! You get to drink ALLTHEBEER. Or wine, or cider, or whichever nicely bottled drinks you can get your hands on. (But always drink responsibly, kids!). Here’s how to do it.
You’d be dotty not to be, well, dotty for this fantastic wed fest set in an old veterinary college in Edinburgh. The bridesmaids burnt orange dresses – sourced from Australia – add an amazing autumnal colour to proceedings and look so good with the beautiful botanicals and foliage which frame the dissection room where dinner was served. Bride Siobhan is a total babe, pairing her stunning Charlie Brear gown (oh hello cheeky leg split!) with a Frida Kahlo-inspired flower crown and polka dot wedding veil. All together now, she wore an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot… oh wait…
Your wedding photos are probably one of the most important investments you will make for your big day. As a veteran bride myself, I can tell you that the day goes past in a gorgeous, love-filled, rip-roaring blur. You want to soak up every moment, (in the moment!), whilst leaving the precious moment capturing to the professionals. And for them, the wedding photography timeline is key.
Our criteria for accepting wedding photographers into our carefully curated wedding supplier directory, The List, means that we KNOW you’re in good hands. And one of the things most often discussed is the importance of communication with the couple. They want to know exactly what you want. And your wedding photography timeline is a map of the day that ensures you get that cherished shot with Gran, that blissed out golden hour shot with your new husband or wife and every delicious detail in between.
So, how do you design a wedding photography timeline? We’re glad you asked. Because below we have a step by step guide, a list of shots to consider, top advice from the industry experts (these are nuggets of golden wisdom – Do not miss them!) AND a free printable to keep you right. You are SO welcome.
If heaven were a place on earth, I think Tuscany would have a good claim to it. Rolling hills, winding roads and cypress trees make for the most picturesque backdrop which, when combined with amazing food and stunning Renaissance architecture, is enough to make your heart skip a beat at every turn – and that’s before you’ve even said your vows! Katrina & Mark’s wedding has that magical quality that only the Italian landscape provides: a classical romance made modern in the stunning setting of Casa Cornacchi. I love the fairytale feel created by the soft textures of the bride’s beautiful lace Essense of Australia dress and the gorgeous drapery hung across the altar and behind the top table. Further romance comes in the form of first look photos, stunning blush and burgundy florals, and beautiful calligraphy signage and stationery, as well as the confetti moment with guests throwing eucalyptus leaves.
We’ve always had a soft spot for a C.D real bride, so it’s with real pleasure today we can introduce you to the new Catherine Deane Bridal Separates Collection in the hope we’ll be featuring lots more of you lovelies in these dreamy designs. Whether you like, lace, tulle or sleek styles there is a top or skirt for you. And the best part there are no restrictions to the combinations you can choose. Sounds like a bridal dream… It is!
I can’t think of two themes richer in colours or flavours than those which inspire this wedding: autumn and Mexico. The striking shades of Sophie & Steve’s autumnal colour scheme – mustards, rust and berries – are vibrant and vivacious, and work so well on all levels: from the mismatched bridesmaids dresses to the bouquets and doughnut wall. Mexican catering, plus margaritas, must have kept guests extremely happy, and a note on the cake – a three-tiered vegan chocolate cherry and almond number – made by local bakery Luminary, a social enterprise that provides training, community and employment opportunities for socially and economically disadvantaged women. Now that truly has a RMW stamp of approval.
We have a very special wedding for you this afternoon. It’s the beautiful wedding of our very own Alice to her beau Ben at Nancarrow Farm. It’s full of emotion and wonderful captures by Ross Talling. Not to mention Alice’s bespoke bridal gown of dreams made by her dress designer sister, Beyond Bridal.
