Your wedding day is all about chasing your heart, and this romantic Italian castle wedding is proof that when the heart knows what it wants, the mind will follow. When Australian couple Cindy and Jason couldn’t find their dream venue at home, they looked across continents – and it took them only 15 minutes to find their perfect venue in the gorgeous green hills of Umbria. And we bet our bottom dollar they will be forever glad they listened to their hearts because the setting of La Badia Di Orvieto – amidst olive trees and vineyards – is sensational. Not to mention the incredible golden hour light the Italian summer blessed them with. Just wait until you see their couple’s portraits. Stunning.
If you dream of your big day in pastel tinted tones, then look no further: this country tipi wedding is perfection. Shot with Sarah-Jane Ethan’s sublime signature style, this stunning catalogue of captures details a wedding weekend that has it all: a breathtaking priory with petal-lined altar, hanging flower installation,, dreamy DIY touches including a macramé arch – and two miniature schnauzer ring bearers in burgundy bow ties to match the groom. Step this way for a magical summer celebration (washed down with wine shipped over from the couple’s favourite vineyards in Australia. Cheers!).
Some couples are born cool (I’ve long made peace with the fact I’m not), and this Shoreditch wedding at Village Underground has all the swag, with to-die-for industrial vibes and an epic party. Stylish bride, Sophie, looks hot to trot in her Rosa gown by RMW favourite, Grace Loves Lace, accessorised with a pair of simple – but stunning – gold triangle earrings. Alongside her dashing groom, she looks sublime against the gritty backdrop of East London, and must be thrilled with the couples captures by Chris Barber; keep an eye out for our newlyweds shot through the window of a Routemaster bus. Genius. And as for the menu. My oh my; dive in to discover one of the best wedding breakfasts we’ve seen on these pages.
Garthmyl Hall’s modern summer house is the perfect venue to showcase this romantic pink and gold wedding inspiration by Hannah of KnockKnockPenny Studio. The epic florals, dreamy tapper candles and delicious desserts fill the distressed but charming space leaving you truly speechless. Add the gorgeous silhouettes of chic bridal gowns and the intricate details of some truly wonderful bridal headdresses and you are going to be hitting PIN before you you’ve even reached the second gallery!
Good job stealing someone’s heart is not a crime, because these two police officers are a perfect match. Janey and Rhys’ wedding weekend at the fabulous Fforest Farm in Wales is utterly joyous, with beaming smiles, a beautiful setting and so many brilliant touches; think afternoon tea, confetti cannons and the bride doing the limbo – not to mention a steel band and rum cocktails. Yes, please! Keep an eye out, too, for Janey’s gorgeous lace KatyaKatya gown, which she customises with different coloured slips throughout the day. It complements the relaxed, rustic feel of the day and suits her perfectly.
If you’re planning on using confetti at your wedding then a gorgeous touch (and lovely talking point) is to create a confetti station from which guests can help themselves to their own cones of confetti. It’s a super easy, fun and affordable DIY that only takes a couple of hours. Get your bridesmaids involved and you’ll have whipped one up quicker than you can say Confetti Cone Station…
Good job these two gorgeous grooms are both doctors because this seriously swoon-worthy wedding is likely to leave you light-headed (I sure am). From the light-filled, whitewashed warehouse vibe, to the special personal touches (look out for Grandad Cyril’s marmalade!), the industrial styling at Wimborne House is beautifully enhanced by the DIY details provided by the couple, who grew all the greenery in their own back garden and roped in Jack’s builder dad to create the incredible copper arch. And not forgetting the fantastic feast, catered by RMW recommended supplier Humdingers. This may be a photography studio by day, but by Jove, it is a wedding gem by night.
The beautiful, transparent acrylic wedding trend has been slowly gracing our pages for a while now, but we think it’s high time it was catapulted into weddings everywhere in 2019.

We love to see it etched or adorned with beautifully written calligraphy, and whether your wedding is ultra modern, traditional or rustic there’s a place for this versatile wedding decor amongst it. Our handpicked supplier directory, The List, is filled with every supplier type you will need to set your acrylic dreams alight, so let us take a look at these inspirational ideas from our Stationers and Planners & Stylists to inspire your own use of acrylic, perspex and lucite details.
Oh my. Oh my. Oh my. This Puglian countryside wedding is simply spectacular. From the wedding ceremony in the forest complete with fairy light moon gate altar to the Aperitivo hour in the olive grove, not to mention the wedding breakfast and party in the cobbled courtyard, this is romance at its most beautiful (and most appetising: don’t read if you’re hungry!). The bride’s gorgeous Anna Kara wedding gown, with long sleeves, lace bodice and soft skirt, finished off by a floor-length veil from RMW recommended supplier Britten Weddings, adds extra magic to this destination wedding, which is just oozing with love, emotion and whimsy. Enchanting.
