About victoria

Editorial Assistant Victoria fell in love with the world of weddings after planning her own (in only 6 months!) in 2018. She thinks being a bride - and a wife - are the best titles going (although is still getting used to her new name).

BBQ Wedding at The Old Rectory in Hastings with Fitted ‘Raciela’ Pronovias Gown, Sweetheart Table and Ghost Chairs, shot by Georgina Piper Photography Pin Image

BBQ Wedding at The Old Rectory in Hastings with Fitted ‘Raciela’ Pronovias Gown

This beautiful BBQ wedding is the ultimate summer celebration, combining everyone’s favourite al fresco dining option with a gorgeous secret garden ceremony. Ghost chairs, a sweetheart table and an off-the-shoulder Pronovias wedding dress all feature, alongside perspex signs and the prettiest florals. There’s also some incredibly sweet and personal captures, from the reaction of an emotional guest seeing the blushing bride walk down the aisle to the cutest flower girl playing Jenga. Oh, and did we mention the appearance of the Red Arrows? This is the sort of summer day we all dream of.

Greenery Wedding at Cripps Barn in the Cotswolds with Halfpenny London Wedding Dress

Wild by name, wild by nature: this greenery wedding celebrates wild woodlands – and our couple’s newlywed name – in the most spectacular style. Wildflowers, foliage and wooden props beautify the barn, whilst the bridal party are transformed into “woodland fairies” with flower crowns, unstructured bouquets and flowing locks. With plenty of DIY décor, as well as talented friends adding those all-important personal touches, we’re pretty wild (ahem) about this one.

Macrame Table Plan for a Stylish Outdoor Wedding in Spain Planned by Paloma Cruz Eventos

I’m pretty sure I’ve died and gone to bohemian heaven thanks to this stunning wedding, which is intimate, classy, trendy, rustic and romantic all in one. Multicultural couple Loredana & Jonatan live in Sweden but planned their dream day in Spain, inviting their guests to join them for three days of celebrations at the magical Marqués de Montemolar in Altea. The perfect October weather is matched by the picture perfect décor, with a macrame table plan, copper chairs, outdoor banquet table and floral arch. And then there’s our bride, in an utterly spectacular boho chic dress. Plus, the Orthodox ceremony involves a crown. Enough said.

Hallstatt Elopement Pin Image

Intimate Hallstatt Elopement Wedding with Lace Angelic Bridal Gown

Is there anything more intoxicating than the idea of eloping? The act of stripping everything back to what truly matters – you and your beloved, your promises, your passion – is supremely simple but heartachingly romantic, and this Hallstatt elopement will certainly leave you weak at the knees. Australian couple Sari & Daniel only have eyes for each other, which is just as it should be, and look breathtaking against the beautiful backdrop of the Austrian Alps. These stunning photos are intimate and exquisite, and feel as if they should be both private and public all at the same time.

Fine Art Photography Wedding at Hedsor House with Bride in Pronovias Wedding Dress

Picture perfect wedding galleries make our hearts soar, so we were excited to receive this album of fine art photography showcasing Sandra & Zeeshan’s stylish celebrations at Hedsor House. Overlooking the River Thames, our bride and groom describe the venue as a ‘destination wedding on their doorstep’, and it truly does have the feel of an Italianate-style mansion with the beauty of being only a stone’s throw outside the Big Smoke. Classic styling and seasonal flowers mean every inch of the wedding remains as elegant as the stunning surroundings, and guests greatly enjoyed mocktails and canapes in the gorgeous grounds before heading inside for a delicious wedding breakfast created by Caper & Berry. If you’re looking for grace and good taste – alongside plenty of fun and laughter – this wedding is the one.

Charlie Brear Payton Bridal Gown & Piora Feather Skirt with Deep Red, Grasses & Pheasant Feather Floral Installation at Iscoyd Park

When an esteemed photographer describes a wedding as “epic”, you know you’re in for a treat. And by golly, does Sarah & Lee’s big day deliver. For a start, we are at Iscoyd Park, one of our favourite venues and member of our handpicked directory The List. For seconds, there’s an incredible pampas grass and pheasant feather hanging installation. And then there’s the florals; the foliage; the neon signs; the Boston terrier! But really, it’s all about the dress, Charlie Brear’s Payton gown and feather Piora skirt creating serious aisle style credentials. Swooning eyes at the ready.

Ivory, Gold and Grey Colour Scheme for Whimsical Country House Wedding at Brympton House with Bride in St Patrick La Sposa, shot by Helen Cawte Photography Pin Image

Ivory, Gold and Grey Colour Scheme for a Whimsical Country House Wedding at Brympton House

We are so in the mood for a beautiful – and beauty-filled – wedding, and this delightful day does not disappoint. Brympton House provides the perfect backdrop for the celebrations, which include a blushing bride in St Patrick La Sposa and a Britten Weddings veil (discovered through RMW’s handpicked supplier directory, The List), an elegant ivory, gold and grey colour scheme, a homemade chocolate biscuit refrigerator cake (mm mmm!) – and Barley the ‘bridesdog’. You will spy a few brollies amongst Helen Cawte‘s captures, but word from the wedded wise: don’t allow yourself to fixate on things which are out of your control. Bride Kate spent months worrying about the weather, and had more than ten forecast apps on her phone, but, with hindsight, she wishes she hadn’t spent so long worrying about the weather as there was nothing she could do – and she hardly noticed the odd shower. Plus, the white bridal brollies look rather lovely in the photos.

This is one of those weddings where the pictures really do all the talking. Be prepared to pinch yourself.

Homemade Wedding Dress Pin Image

Homemade Wedding Dress for a Tropical Wedding at Syon Park by Darina Stoda

You are in for a treat today, lovelies, with this seriously stylish wedding that boasts a stunning homemade wedding dress, as well as to-die-for natural décor including cactus plants and palm trees. Every single element of Chelsey & Ryan’s celebration is jaw dropping: from the venue to the styling to the sweet bar (send a peanut butter brownie my way, please!). We are actually drooling. And we bet groom Ryan was too when he saw Chelsey in that dress, made by her mum (who also made the bridesmaids dresses too; talk about talented), which is both perfectly demure and hot-to-trot all in one.
