Way back when in 2010 The RMW Team were on a real mission to bring back peach to the masses. There were peachy maids dresses, peachy florals, peachy decor details, peachy stationery….
But not once did we spy an actual bride in peach.
Well that’s all about to change lovelies, as the uber talented Julia Boggio submitted the wedding of Jo and Luke to feature on these very pages and now we have the absolute pleasure of sharing it with you.
There are many many things I love about this W-day, the fashion, the fun factor, the cake ( to die for I tell you), the flawless bride, the wedding rings served up in giant strawberries….
I could go on.
But I won’t, I’ll just let you gorgeous lot enjoy the pretty for yourselves.
My shoes were from Rachel Simpson, who designs vintage style wedding shoes. A comfortable height in a soft cream colour!
The Perfect Accessories
My dressmaker Jenny made me a headpiece on a comb which matched the diamond embellishment on my dress. I attached a piece of merry widow veiling as a birdcage netting to the comb. I had a simple clutch bag from Coast.
I didn’t need much jewellery as my dress was heavily embellished around the waistband – but I had a lovely bracelet and matching earrings from the Bridal Rogue Gallery in London
Bespoke Hollywood Glamour
I had my beautiful wedding dress made by the amazing Jenny Lessin – she was so great to work with and without doubt achieved the perfect dress for me. I didn’t have a clear idea of what dress I wanted, which is why I went for a handmade dress.
The material was a mixture of satin and chiffon in a beautiful soft peach colour – with lots of embellishments! The inspiration was old school Hollywood glamour (and Sienna Miller!)
Our theme which we created with our wedding planner, the wonderful Zoe Lingard was “Vintage Bohemian”
At the beginning of the planning process we sat down together to discuss our likes and loves and our history together. After putting a range of initial ideas together, we opted for a vintage bohemian look that combined our love of vintage style, current trends and also our laid back outlook on life!
The bridesmaid dresses were custom made by Genevieve Leicester-Thackara
From Zoë: Inspired by a wedding featured on Style me Pretty we asked Genevieve to make the dresses in a range of different but complimentary colours. Genevieve came up with the fantastic suggestion of using the wrong side of the Satin. This meant the dresses were really glamorous without being too shiny and nightie-esque! The overall look worked beautifully with the fun, bohemian feel of the day.
The Sweetest Blooms
Claire at Scarlet & Violet were responsible for our flowers and they did and incredible job. My bouquet was a soft, shower style bouquet of garden and spray roses with tumbling sweet peas. For the ceremony there were two large milk churns of blossom, lilacs, peonies and seasonal greenery
For the table centers we had anemones, garden and spray roses, sweet peas, lilacs, snap dragons.
The roses were perfect for the theme and everything else was seasonal and fitted well with the theme of the day.
A Peachy Dream
Luke wore a really lovely Italian suit in a cappuccino colour – it was 100% wool but so lightweight. He had a white shirt from Massimo Dutti and instead of a tie he had a peach coloured pashmina scarf to match my dress. He looked gorgeous!
