Stop what you’re doing and take a breath, for this wedding is going to leave you breathless. Chateau La Durantie in the Dordogne is divine, and our lovely couple certainly make the most of the gorgeous gardens and fairytale castle during their wedding celebrations, with an outdoor ceremony, outdoor seating area and inside-outside marquee. Sandwiched between two stormy days, their wedding celebrations are drenched in sunshine – which explains why the party ends up in the pool! With a pastel macaroon tower, Pronovias dress and hot pink heels to boot (can you spot the little fashionista giving them a try?), this wedding is all things pretty. Enjoy.
Barn wedding venues are the hidden gems of the wedding venue world. Sometimes proudly placed on Google, sometimes tucked away where only those in the know can find them. And there are some STUNNING barn wedding venues in the UK. Being the venue geeks that we are, we have done all the leg work for you and have listed over 30 of the most magical barn wedding venues in the land via The List (our carefully curated wedding directory). Best of all, with most listings featuring imagery from our real weddings, you can get a true feel for the venue as a wedding space before narrowing down. And to make it even easier, you can also filter by location, capacity and facilities.
Are you still debating over whether a barn wedding venue is the right choice for your day? If so, let us give you a rundown of why these characterful buildings make the perfect place for both whispering vows and roaring parties.
If the idea of industrial styling has you thinking of something a little harsh, think again: this wedding is prettiness personified. String lights soften the exposed brick walls, and foliage, pampas grass and ferns combine with burgundy and blush flowers to bring a sense of the outside in. Bride Jo is a beauty in Lenora by Wtoo Watters, and looks every inch a goddess as she floats down the foliage-lined, candle-lit aisle. Captured gorgeously by one of RMW’s handpicked suppliers, Frankee Victoria Photography, this truly is a selection of shots to savour. Do not miss the sunset!
Join us on board the SS Nomadic for a multi-venue nautical wedding that takes us on a wonderful tour of Belfast, before transporting us to sea aboard the boat that tendered the Titanic. Ruth & Alan’s day starts with an intimate church wedding, followed by lunch in the trendy back streets of the city before a big party on the last remaining White Star Line vessel. A vintage Routemaster bus, black tie dress code and retro close harmony trio add to the glamour of this gorgeous day, which includes a bride in pretty Jesus Peiro and bridesmaids in mint green Maids to Measure.
Today’s classic country wedding comes from Pimm’s wedding dash winners Jade & Daniel. Who also won an incredible £8,000 towards wedding services from our very own handpicked wedding supplier directory The List. We absolutely love how they chose to spend their winnings. Most noteworthy was choosing The Dawdling Duck so they could provide guests with a FREE bar. Absolute genius! So, we feel that Good Friday should be spent swooning over this country wedding.
I am LOVING the craze for hoop décor that’s setting weddings alight at the moment. IMHO you can’t get a more beautiful, classic, and timeless shape than a hoop: they fit seamlessly into all types of venues and settings, and are a simple way of adding impact and interest. And if you’re canny about it, they’re affordable! All the bits I needed to create this hula hoop table plan came to a grand total of just over £30, so if you’re planning a wedding on a budget it’s a great way to save a couple of quid.
Easter is a time to indulge and I can guarantee you’ll be getting a treat when you see this powder blue and luxury gold wedding inspiration by Hayley Jane Weddings & Events. There are taper candles, luxury linens and the most epic balloon and floral arrangements. Now, are you sitting comfortably? Then let’s get stuck in!
Heathcliff fans: rejoice! This sensational Scottish wedding has more than a hint of Wuthering Heights to it, with low-level lighting in the form of a fabulous festoon light canopy, foliage features reflecting the rugged rural coastline outside – and lashing wind and rain, which did not dampen Clare & Steven’s spirits, but in fact makes for the most mesmerising and magical couple’s portraits. Honestly, they’re spectacular. Add in a delicious drippy wedding cake, perspex signs, a tree-lined aisle and the groom in his family’s tartan kilt for a truly romantic treat. Ready, set, swoon.
There are some weddings that simply make your heart soar, and this London summer wedding – filled with beautiful family moments and a fantastic floral arch – is one such celebration. I won’t give anything away, as bride and groom Chloe & Ben tell the story best in their own words, but suffice to say you might want your hankies out for this one. Let’s just say, you’re never too old to find love!
