It’s so lovely to see our former Editor Fern, rocking the wedding world with her fabulous business Fern Godrey Weddings. She’s always had an eye for detail, which is certainly portrayed within this understated luxury inspiration shoot at St Giles House. Featuring jaw-dropping gowns, delicate flowers and minimalist wedding stationery, proving that a few key features can make a day feel extra special.
If ever you needed proof that superwoman wears a wedding dress, this is it. Emily looks sensational in her lace Avalon dress and plain bridal cape, flanked by her bridesmaids in jumpsuits and leather jackets. Talk about bridal party goals. In fact, talk about wedding goals: Emily & Simon’s ceremony focused on equality, with the bride walking down the aisle alongside both her parents and the couple having a handfasting ceremony (instead of rings) conducted by their mums. We also love the industrial feel of Clapton Country Club, simply but beautifully decorated with winter flowers, foliage and festoon lights to create a winter wonderland with a hint of Christmas charm.
We are bringing you all the goosebumps with this forest themed wedding, a day that is not only spectacularly stylish (and completely DIY-ed) but also a testament and tribute to the strength of love. Groom Will was diagnosed with cancer at the start of 2018, six months before he was due to marry Kirsty – his childhood sweetheart – in June. Too poorly to make the original date, the couple postponed their wedding until September, grateful that all of their suppliers were able to accommodate the difficult situation and new date. Wonderfully, Will got the all-clear before the wedding, turning the day into the most poignant and perfect celebration. We could not be more thrilled for this sweet couple, or more in awe of their epic styling efforts, which nail their rustic boho brief beautifully.
How has it been one whole year since the Royal Wedding?! And while Harry and Meghan are getting snuggled up with their beautiful new baby boy Archie, we thought we would celebrate their anniversary by sharing some inspiration images for recreating four iconic elements of the Royal Wedding ideas. Featuring a whole host of the handpicked suppliers from our directory, The List.
French destination weddings will always be in fashion; who wouldn’t want to say ‘I do’ amidst land that oozes love? Amy & Tim’s wedding weekend has us weak at the knees, with every picture perfect detail adding its own je ne sais quoi: from the incredible venue to the beautiful dress to the sensational styling – just look at that cornucopia of candles! – this catalogue of captures shows that heaven truly is a place on earth. Oh, and we haven’t even mentioned the Aperol spritz bar. Someone catch me before I fall even more head over heels.
Escape the every day with this rustic luxe wedding, a match made in heaven between barn conversion and luxury wedding venue. Gorgeous decorative details make the wood-clad walls and ceilings sing and create an indoors-outdoors feel, which is just perfect for a winter wedding. Kendal & Rob were blessed with beautiful weather, casting a super romantic vibe over the celebrations and resulting in golden hour shots to die for. Oh, and a note on the dress – Lexi by Enzoani – a delicate lace fishtail number with customised cap sleeves. Not only is it completely dreamy, but also Kendal admits that it had a stretchy lining meaning – in her own words – “more wedding cake for me!”. Now that truly is a bride after our own hearts.
Prepare to fall head over heels (and down a rabbit hole) with this English countryside wedding, inspired by the story of Alice in Wonderland. American couple Allie & Justin fell in love with each other at the same time as falling in love with England, so there was only ever one place where they were going to start their happily ever after. Babington House is a stunning venue, and allowed the couple to host a four-day celebration for their friends and family, including a welcome brunch and farewell BBQ, as well as plenty of time to kick back, relax and enjoy the weekend (oh hello Cowshed spa!). With travel having been a cornerstone of their relationship, I love the compass motif incorporated throughout, and can’t get enough of the beautiful blooms, which are playful, wild and whimsical. Loose yourselves in this one, lovelies. It’s enchanting.
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).
