We always endeavour to offer no nonsense advice, inspiration and planning ideas for your wedding across every available platform, be that via the blog or our frequently updated social media accounts. Sometimes it can be quite restrictive, trying to cover everything we want to share in an instagram caption or a tweet, so it made perfect sense for us to start our very own Podcast series!
When news broke of the imminent closure of Style Me Pretty myself and the team were both shocked and saddened. It’s not for us to speculate publicly the reasons behind the decision, becoming part of a corporate giant such as Oath following various purchases and mergers by the likes of Verizon, Yahoo and AOL (who purchased SMP back in 2012) means that Style Me Pretty would constantly be under scrutiny with regards their profitability, with continual comparisons to all of the other media platforms owned by Verizon.
One thing I can say for sure is if it wasn’t for Style Me Pretty, Rock My Wedding would not exist.
The 9th of February has been a significant date for the team for many months now. The day our book “Your Day Your Way” officially launches, we are so excited to see that so many of you have already pre-ordered, as I type we are already on the Amazon Bestsellers list – number 1 in Fashion!
When my husband and I were planning our wedding we made a trip to Bicester Village, a designer shopping outlet near Oxford. Our only regret was that we hadn’t visited sooner, we couldn’t believe the significant savings that we could have made on amazing fashion and beautiful accessories.
We are loving listening to Mariah on repeat whilst enjoying a glass of Prosecco and seemingly being unable to keep our hands out of the Quality Street tin. I guess it’s well and truly nearly Christmas (6 more sleeps!) and if you haven’t yet bought a gift for your engaged friend or indeed yourself then how about pre-ordering the Rock My Wedding book “Your Day Your Way” written by our founder Charlotte O’Shea?
When we launched Rock My Wedding in September 2009 the blog certainly looked very different to how it does now.
We had a rather fetching blue polka dot backdrop and basic branding that makes me cringe (and want to erase it from my memory forever). But you can’t forget where or what you came from. Those early days were crazy, incredibly hard work and a rollercoaster adventure of learning from our mistakes and taking risks the more often than not, have paid off.
Oh my gosh this pre wedding shoot in the Peak District is SO romantic. That opening portrait captured by Deborah Grace Photography of our gorgeous couple kissing in the rain is amazing, and super HOT to boot.
They look utterly at ease laying in the fields, drinking in the views and embracing one another. Their love and happiness literally radiates out of each image, and you won’t be able to resist smiling and swooning along with them.
If you want to see more of this gorgeous couple, you NEED to pop back to the blog this afternoon when we’ll be sharing their gorgeous at-home marquee wedding, full of even more smiles, prettiness and love.
I am such a huge fan of blush at the moment. If you’re a regular reader of Sister blog Rock My Style you’ll know that I have my eye on a blush sofa. I’ve just got to convince the husband. Anyway I digress. It’s a real treat to see this blush, White by Vera Wang bridal gown gracing our pages. The layers of tulle and appliqué bustle are heavenly. It goes without saying that Bride Hannah looks absolutely AMAZING.
The outdoor ceremony in the woods adds to their fairytale story with humble BBQ, ales and ice-cream food trucks to dig into. If you like this relax approach too, you should definitely check out our Love Lust List street food & drinks post for more suppliers in your area.
If you haven’t pinned it yet. Why on earth not?! M&J Photography captured all the floral details of each bloom for you. Including some of my favourite flowers, Peonies, Snowflake Spray Roses, Hydrangea, Gypsophila, Avalanche Roses, all in crisp shades of white, and all looking absolutely fabulous next to Soft Eucalyptus, Seasonal English Foliage and Silver SenecioI greenery.
The reception then took place at Chiswick House and Gardens, giving a chic country edge to this elegant city wedding. With more dreamy sunset portraits to pore over and fabulous fashion to admire, you’ll be book marking this for a second, third and forth look it’s so stunning.
