Joy & Gabriel

Hampton Court House is such a beautiful place for a wedding – I love that the reception room is behind a gorgeous doorway, meaning you can create a show stopping moment as guests enter the room. Joy and Gabriel have dressed the venue simply with white lanterns and lots of blush pink flowers, making the most of the stunning archway door, high ceilings and floor tiles.

Our lovely couple have lots of friends and family with young children and I have to say, this is hands down the best wedding in terms of catering for kids that I’ve ever seen! All the little people look like they’ve had the BEST day, as well as giving their parents the time and space to enjoy the wedding on their own terms too. Even more lovely, is the fact that Joy found out she was pregnant shortly before the wedding 🙂 making these photographs even more special.

Katie & Mike

Hold on to your hats team, as this wedding is a total blast from start to finish. Gorgeous fashion and details are kind of a given with RMW real weddings, but we feature photographers and videographers with lots of different styles (quality being the similarity between them all). And today it’s all about fun and creativity. Katie and Mike chose The Crawleys as their photographers and This Modern Revelry to film their big day – these guys both love to capture the individual personalities brought to a wedding day and I have a feeling you’re going to really like looking at the images and watching the film. So grab a cuppa, get comfortable and enjoy…the joy is simply infectious!

Alice & John

This morning we’re escaping to beautiful Umbria in Italy for an intimate, minimal and stylish wedding brimming with fun, family and friends. Having a destination wedding is a sure fire way to ensure that guests are relaxed and really make the most of their weekend and it certainly looks like Alice & John’s guests did that! They actually used the destination weddings we feature here on RMW to help them narrow down their venue and they opted for the stunning Abbazia San Pietro.

Alice and John look utterly glamorous and sophisticated in a minimal elegant gown Charlotte Simpson and a black tux with red rose corsage. Images come from Paolo Ceritano who we rate highly for his authentic style and it also sounds like his help was invaluable for Alice & John when planning their destination wedding.

Introducing Nat’s Paper Studio

January is such a great month for getting stuck into wedding planning. Filling those long dark nights with lots of wedmin is the perfect remedy for post Christmas blues. And gorgeous stationery is definitely something lovely to think about. Today we’re introducing you to the lovely Nat at Nat’s Paper Studio. Nat has a background in graphic design, but was being constantly asked to create stationery for friends and family so the transition was a natural one! We can see why – Nat’s designs are stylish and contemporary and perfect for today’s modern bride, who wants her wedding to be a reflection of her and her partner’s personal style. Want to see more of Nat’s work and hear all about her business? I thought so, let’s take a look…

Stuart & Jess by Sarah-Jane Ethan Photography Pin Image

Jess & Stuart

If you’re having a winter wedding, one way to keep things feeling warm is to fill your day with colour and that’s exactly what Jess and Stuart did. Their colour palette was a classic and elegant one of navy and golds, but the florals were literally a rainbow of shades and they just look SO beautiful against the dark blues and metallics.

Bride Jess and her best friend Laura (who happens to be a dress designer) created some stunning gowns for Jess herself and her beautiful bridesmaids. Not only are they handcrafted by someone Jess loves, but the dresses are totally unique too! I think you’ll agree that the whole bridal party look stunning.

The light and bright images come from the lovely Sarah Jane Ethan (as some of you will know already, her style is so obviously her – full of positivity and joy). Oh and did I mention, this gorgeous couple chose the wonderful Healey Barn to host their day?! You’re in for a treat…

Sophia & Chris

Sophia & Chris filled their lovely wedding day with pastel blooms and lots of rustic, handcrafted details. Sophia wore the gorgeously feminine Esme gown by Naomi Neoh and her bridesmaids dazzled in Needle & Thread, whose dresses are fast becoming the most coveted dresses around. We get it, that tulle and sequin combination is hard to beat!

The photos come from the wonderful Katherine Ashdown whose light-filled images have graced these pages often. It’s always a pleasure to share her imagery with you all. Sophia and Chris definitely hit the jackpot in choosing Katherine to capture their wedding day, as you’re about to see…

{Atlantis} The 2018 Collection From Halfpenny London

Sharing the latest collection from Halfpenny London always makes my heart skip a beat. Kate’s ability to create a line of bridal wear that is unique, ahead of the curve but still gorgeously wearable is second to none and there really is a dress here for every (stylish) bride. Inspired by the fabled lost city of Atlantis, this collection channels the asymmetric splendour of rugged coastlines and frothy waves caressing a sandy beach. It’s also hugely versatile with a selection of lace tops and slips/dresses to combine plus a stunning shaggy jacket that is set to be the must have accessory for all winter brides.

We have the pleasure of Kate sharing her favourite pieces from the collection on the blog this afternoon so grab a seat and get comfortable, I have a feeling you’re about to find your dream dress…

Alli and James chose the stunning Launcells Barton as their wedding venue. The pair adore Cornwall and so Launcells, with it’s gorgeous location, luxurious accommodation and epic new reception barn was the perfect place to host their wedding. With guests flying in from all over the world, treating them to a weekend of fun was really important and Lara & Matt (Launcell’s owners) were there to help every step of the way.

If you’re looking for a venue in the South West then do have a nosey at Launcells Barton, they have an open day coming up on 28th Jan – so why not treat yourself to a mini break in Cornwall and visit? You can see the full details and make an appointment via their website. But first, let’s share Alli and James’ joyful big day…
