Relaxed neutral colours balanced with crisp black tuxes and a mermaid fishtail wedding dress (yes, you read that right!) set the tone for Abbie and Mitch’s chic ceremony. Three cancelled dates, a change in venue, and an entire re-jig of the day didn’t stop them from having the wedding day of their dreams at Recommended venue Elmore Court. There was an abundance of beautiful flowers, including the most beautiful bouquet. Embracing the trend of maximalist florals, Rock My Wedding Recommended supplier Corky & Prince stole the show. To round it off, a magician and two miniature dachshunds in tuxedos made appearances, filling the venue with more than enough joy to go around.

Mermaid fishtail wedding dress? Yes please.

It’s very hard to choose a favourite moment from the day. However, we think it would have to be when we first looked at each other as I walked down the aisle. We were both so nervous, but as soon as we were together, nothing else mattered. The room was filled with so much love, and the day just got better and better from there.

Abbie’s mermaid fishtail wedding dress from The Cotswold Frock Shop by Morilee left us all speechless. The figure-hugging design created an hourglass silhouette that drew her in at the waist before flaring out. Paired with a stunning bouquet of flowers, an elegant veil, and silver strappy heels from Jimmy Choo, Abbie truly looked like a mermaid dream.


Keep it simple! Trust your suppliers! As a bride, spend your morning getting ready with your loved ones and don’t stress about the small things. Don’t be scared to tell your suppliers EXACTLY what you want, speak up if you don’t like it. Also, don’t have any regrets, have your day exactly how YOU want it – this is your day. Don’t listen to others’ opinions. Do what you want to do!

The super stylish mermaid fishtail wedding dress paired perfectly with the fun and energetic theme of this ceremony.

We had a magician who brought our guests together during the drinks reception. We also had our two miniature dachshunds there, wearing little tuxedos. I got up and sang at the evening reception, once the live band started. We kept the day simple and relaxed, and it was just perfect. I wouldn’t change it for the world.
