There is a secret princess in all of us that wants to wear the perfect gown and get married in a castle. And Bride Alice did exactly that in a gorgeous homemade wedding dress to her perfect groom Francois. The whole Highcliffe Castle wedding is full of atmosphere and emotion, captured beautifully by Carrie Lavers Photography and featuring confetti and entertainment from Shropshire Petals and DiscoWed, both of whom are on our reccomended supplier directory The List. Keep your pinning fingers ready for the immense King Protea bouquet and wedding flowers too!
This stylish and relaxed pair planned their beautiful big day in just six short weeks. Proving that it absolutely can be done and there’s no need to cave into pressure about having everything booked months in advance. They were lucky that the amazing Carrie Lavers was available to shoot their wedding, and that Anneka’s Dad let them hold their reception at his farm, but still, the rest was pulled together with hard work and a sensible attitude. Outfits, marquee hire, flowers, food, drinks, done. It doesn’t have to be more complicated than that. And I must admit, Anneka and Lee’s wedding looks like one of the happiest weddings I’ve seen. Plus I’m loving Lee’s attire – a groom in a pink jacket should be a feature at every wedding in my opinion.
The pair had a very special announcement for guests, which left everyone in tears of joy. I’ll let you read all about it in the report, if you haven’t guessed what it was already…
This gorgeous pair had a relaxed and fun DIY wedding at Warborne Farm, full of homemade details, incredible food sourced from their deli and a party to end all parties under an electrical storm. The lovely Carrie Lavers was there to capture all the fun, and you might recognise these two from their engagement shoot as we featured it here on RMW.
Dan & Michael found one of their wedding readings on RMW, which is weirdly apt for today as the latest version of RMW The Podcast released this morning, is all about readings! Have a listen after you’ve enjoyed this feature…
Good vibes only pretty much sums up Stef and Dean’s relaxed, stylish city wedding. They chose the Clapton Country Club for their reception, which I think is a new venue to RMW? It looks gorgeous though, and certainly one I’d like to see more of.
Stef and Dean chose RMW favourite Carrie Lavers to photograph their day, and we’re so glad she did. I love her natural, atmospheric style and she always brings the fun too. Enjoy this one loves, if you like industrial styling you’re going to swoon over this…
Would you just look at this gorgeous pair. They may not have been keen to begin with to have an engagement shoot, but the fabulous Carrie Lavers Photography won them over with her artistic style and ability to put them at ease.
The results are absolutely amazing and the love radiates from the page, just like all the gorgeous golden hour portraits captured.
You may have come here looking for a photographer, but you’re probably going to leave with a new friend. Carrie Lavers is not just a brilliant photographer, effortlessly capturing wonderful moments from your big day, but she’s a joy to be around. We say it an awful lot here at Rock My Wedding, but your dream team of suppliers will be people you don’t know, but trust completely to deliver your vision, and Carrie can be entrusted completely.
Anyone who reads this blog regularly will know that I really like dark and moody wedding styling (see here)…so when Carrie Lavers sent us over this dramatic inspiration shoot, my heart skipped a beat. I love how luminous the blooms from Lily Lupin, the stationery by Geri Loves Emi and the sparkling Jenny Packham gown look against the dark interiors of the venue, there’s still plenty of light to be found in this shoot. And there’s no lack of romance here either – with an abundance of flowers including some of the most gorgeous peonies I’ve ever seen!
The whole team behind this shoot are some of our favourites, so if you’re on the hunt for talented, stylish and seriously lovely suppliers then do get in touch. After you’ve swooned over all this pretty of course…
How atmospheric are these gorgeous pre wedding images from Carrie Lavers? I love that she took Justine and James to places close to their hearts to capture some adorable couple shots, but with the most incredible backgrounds. Even on grey days, London is such a striking city.

She’s also 100% lovely, so will make you feel completely at ease on your wedding day (and all of her couples get a FREE pre wedding shoot too)!!!
