Inspiration

Make sure your passport is to hand, people, as today we travel to Texas and, oh boy, are you in for a treat. For bride and groom, Lauren and Adam, their Fort Worth wedding was all about fun. And did it deliver! We're talking popsicles. We're talking burgers. We're talking Rifle Paper Co. trainers. Need I go on? Keep an eye out for the 'first look' photos, as well as the cheeky garter toss, two American traditions that we can see British couples catching on to.

The Vibe Of The Day

 

We wanted our reception to be laid back and fun. After the ceremony our guests enjoyed ‘poptails’ from Steel City Pops in the courtyard, while we took a few family pictures and waited to make our grand entrance from the balcony. For dinner we had burgers and grilled chicken sandwiches from The Hamburger Man, and my high school friend, Bethany Bradley, made us the most amazing wedding cake for dessert with vanilla and blackberry cream cheese filling and lemon and blueberry filling. We danced, played games, took the coolest pictures in the photo booth and made our big exit with the longest sparklers I’ve ever seen! - Lauren & Adam

Rifle Paper Co. Trainers

I'm a graphic designer by day and one of my favourite brands is Rifle Paper Co. - so I just had to incorporate them into our wedding somehow. Enter an utterly fabulous pair of Rifle Paper Co. trainers, which I changed into before heading up to the rooftop with Paul & Nanda for some couple's portraits set against the Fort Worth skyline. They worked wonderfully with my Stella York dress, which had the most exquisite ivory lace detail and a gorgeous gold underskirt. It was a perfect fit, for both my style and my personality.

Here at RMW, we love a sparkler send-off, and Lauren and Adam's exit is one of the best we've seen; I mean, how long are those sparklers! If you, too, are keen to nail this trend, we have some top tips on how to organise your troops - and what to tell your photographer - ahead of your wedding swansong.
