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).

Bike Shed Motorcycle Club Wedding for ELLE Digital Editor

There are weddings, and then there are weddings, and this fantastic celebration at The Bike Shed Motorcycle Club in Shoreditch is nitty, gritty and oh so pretty. Thoroughly modern couple, Natasha and Luke, worked together to create a celebration that not only reflected them as a couple (move aside, Meghan Markle; this is how bride’s walk themselves down the aisle), but also ensured their guests had a great time to boot. Captured in mesmerising style by Nigel John, the photos feel fitting for a magazine editor and her beau: artistic, atmospheric and poignant, they would not be out of place in an editorial shoot or an art gallery. You truly are in for a treat.

Quintessential English Country Wedding in Glass Marquee at Family Home | Essence of Australia Wedding Dress | Maryanne Weddings Photography Pin Image

Quintessential English Country Wedding in Glass Marquee at Family Home

This classic English wedding is the sort of day little girls dream of (and the sort of occasion I dream of hosting for my own children; just got to get the country house, and the children, first…). The glass marquee blends beautifully into the lush garden setting of the groom’s family home, with a gorgeous hanging garland cascading from the roof. The boho luxe features are styled exquisitely in this space, and I particularly adore the gold cutlery and gold rimmed glassware; little touches really do make all the difference. With fireworks and sparklers sending our newlyweds off into the night, this glorious garden celebration will have you dreaming of halcyon summer days. Enjoy.

Intimate Italian Castle Wedding with Prosecco Tower | Pallas Couture Wedding Gown | Wiskow & White Wedding Planning | James Frost Photography Pin Image

Intimate Italian Castle Wedding with Prosecco Tower

Your wedding day is all about chasing your heart, and this romantic Italian castle wedding is proof that when the heart knows what it wants, the mind will follow. When Australian couple Cindy and Jason couldn’t find their dream venue at home, they looked across continents – and it took them only 15 minutes to find their perfect venue in the gorgeous green hills of Umbria. And we bet our bottom dollar they will be forever glad they listened to their hearts because the setting of La Badia Di Orvieto – amidst olive trees and vineyards – is sensational. Not to mention the incredible golden hour light the Italian summer blessed them with. Just wait until you see their couple’s portraits. Stunning.

Shoreditch Wedding at Village Underground with Bride in Rosa Grace Loves Lace

Some couples are born cool (I’ve long made peace with the fact I’m not), and this Shoreditch wedding at Village Underground has all the swag, with to-die-for industrial vibes and an epic party. Stylish bride, Sophie, looks hot to trot in her Rosa wedding dress by RMW favourite, Grace Loves Lace, accessorised with a pair of simple – but stunning – gold triangle earrings. Alongside her dashing groom, she looks sublime against the gritty backdrop of East London, and must be thrilled with the couples captures by Chris Barber; keep an eye out for our newlyweds shot through the window of a Routemaster bus. Genius. And as for the menu. My oh my; dive in to discover one of the best wedding breakfasts we’ve seen on these pages.

Lace KatyaKatya Wedding Dress for a Tipi Wedding at Fforest Farm

Good job stealing someone’s heart is not a crime, because these two police officers are a perfect match. Janey and Rhys’ wedding weekend at the fabulous Fforest Farm in Wales is utterly joyous, with beaming smiles, a beautiful setting and so many brilliant touches; think afternoon tea, confetti cannons and the bride doing the limbo – not to mention a steel band and rum cocktails. Yes, please! Keep an eye out, too, for Janey’s gorgeous lace KatyaKatya gown, which she customises with different coloured slips throughout the day. It complements the relaxed, rustic feel of the day and suits her perfectly.

Same Sex Wedding with Industrial Styling at Wimborne House | Paul Smith Suit | Made-To-Measure Suit from Beggars Run Shoreditch | Marmelo Photography Pin Image

Same Sex Wedding with Industrial Styling at Wimborne House

Good job these two gorgeous grooms are both doctors because this seriously swoon-worthy wedding is likely to leave you light-headed (I sure am). From the light-filled, whitewashed warehouse vibe, to the special personal touches (look out for Grandad Cyril’s marmalade!), the industrial styling at Wimborne House is beautifully enhanced by the DIY details provided by the couple, who grew all the greenery in their own back garden and roped in Jack’s builder dad to create the incredible copper arch. And not forgetting the fantastic feast, catered by RMW recommended supplier Humdingers. This may be a photography studio by day, but by Jove, it is a wedding gem by night.

Puglian Countryside Wedding with Fairy Light Altar and Olive Grove Aperitivo | Anna Kara Wedding Dress | Britten Weddings Veil | Figtree Wedding Photography Pin Image

Fairy Light Moon Gate Altar in the Puglian Countryside

Oh my. Oh my. Oh my. This Puglian countryside wedding is simply spectacular. From the wedding ceremony in the forest complete with fairy light moon gate altar to the Aperitivo hour in the olive grove, not to mention the wedding breakfast and party in the cobbled courtyard, this is romance at its most beautiful (and most appetising: don’t read if you’re hungry!). The bride’s gorgeous Anna Kara wedding gown, with long sleeves, lace bodice and soft skirt, finished off by a floor-length veil from RMW recommended supplier Britten Weddings, adds extra magic to this destination wedding, which is just oozing with love, emotion and whimsy. Enchanting.
