What makes a wedding cake fall into the rustic wedding cakes category I hear you cry?! Well, it’s a really good question; one there isn’t actually a definitive answer to. We’ve come to the conclusion it’s a cake that fits perfectly into your rustic wedding theme, be that a naked cake, an iced wedding cake or a tower of cheese! One common denominator we have noticed is whatever your chosen cake design (your day your way), 9/10 couples choose to have it resting on a tree stump cake stand or surrounded by foliage and flowers. Shall we take a look at some of our favourites from the archives? We hope you’ve had breakfast/lunch/dinner (insert as appropriate) as we can pretty much guarantee some serious drooling going on! Enjoy.

If you’re hoping to have a cheese tower for your wedding guests to nibble on, then this post is a must read. Drawing on the vast experience and talents of our The List recommended suppliers, Neal’s Yard Dairy and The Cheese Plate, we’ve put together the ultimate guide to choosing, assembling and devouring ALL THE CHEESE…
This gorgeous concept by Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium, and styled by Anna Fern Weddings is a celebration of soft and delicate and bold and beautiful, giving you the best of both words this afternoon. One things for sure though is that both are absolutely stunning and sure to have you swooning with delight.
I have never seen so many mesmerising cakes and flowers in one place, it is literally a feast for the eyes. Plus the bridal designs by Jo Fleming are exquisite, perfectly complimenting each set up beautifully.
Roberta Facchini Photography works her magic behind the lens, making full use of all the light flooding in the glasshouse at Horniman Museum and Gardens wedding venue, and captures every last detail. So get your pinning fingers at the ready and enjoy.
How utterly gorgeous is this shoot? The less is more approach always appeals to me – I’d much rather see a beautifully curated small edit of items than a flamboyant display of mediocrity and I think it’s safe to say The Inner City Weddings girls agree. This shoot is so striking and stylish but also, SO simple. Just a stunning venue, gorgeous blooms and some lovely outfits.
The shoot was captured by the wonderful Agnes Black, whose bohemian eye was just perfect for this styling. Ready to lose yourself in a palette of marsala, cerise and burnt orange? I thought so!
If I got to be lady of the manor for a day this is exactly how I’d like it to look. Surrounded by elegance and flowers and me looking utterly chic and refined.
The vision by Kate Cullen of Fine Art Wedding Boutique is one of beauty and has been executed perfectly with the help of Bramble & Wild’s immense floral creations, and whole wealth of other talented industry suppliers and experts.
Get ready to be blown away…
One of the very best things about working at RMW, is being able to share incredible industry talent with you all and today’s gorgeous inspiration comes from a planner and stylist we’re extremely excited about. We adore Anne’s minimal and elegant vision – which she describes as understated urban elegance. The fact that Anne has named her company Hilde after her Grandmother is also just so lovely. Beautiful styling that tells a true love story is what weddings should be about.
Anne has gathered an awesome team of creatives to help bring her vision together and I promise you, every aspect is executed to perfection. We’re also very proud that you’ll find Anne (and Lucy who made the stunning desserts) on our recommended supplier directory, The List. Which happens to be completely relaunching NEXT WEEK. We may have mentioned it a *couple* of times (ahem ok a lot of times) but the fact is our recommended supplier directory has always been full of the very best the wedding industry has to offer – creatives like Anne at Hilde Stories who will help you bring your perfect wedding to life.
But for now, I suggest letting this soft, minimal and refined wedding inspiration envelop you, it’s all just so beautiful.
There’s no escaping the glorious sunshine, smiles, fabulous details and fashion at this Italian destination wedding, every gorgeous moment captured by Frances Sales Photography is basked in light and love and will leave you feeling all warm inside.
Plus the moment you see bride Nicola’s backless Sarah Seven dress yet your jaw is going to hit the floor. Sexy, sophisticated and just dawn right stunning. Her bridesmaids look beautiful too in blush pink dresses from the high street and I love that groom Sam has opted for a different coloured blazer to his trousers and waistcoat so he stands out from his groomsmen.
Everything was planned and executed to perfection by Tuscan Wedding Planners, including a dreamy festoon covered al fresco reception. *Swoon.
For today’s final feature, we’re heading to the coast, for an atmospheric inspiration shoot that incorporates several of our favourite things. Pampas grass, moongates and puppies. Could this actually be what heaven looks like?! The styling is from the lovely Elle at The Artful Event Co, who brings her industry-leading styling experience to a new venture. And it’s safe to say after seeing this shoot – we’re excited! If you’re looking for a wedding stylist then do get in touch.
The whole shoot is a visual treat. The colours and textures are just so perfect for the season, reflecting all of the natural tones in the flowers and coastal surroundings. Olivia has captured everything beautifully too, the moody skies, the chemistry between the couple and of course, her adorable puppy Milo (who quite frankly is the star of the show). Enjoy this one beauties, I’ll just be over here, dreaming of pampas grass and puppies…
