It’s truly magical to get married in the Winter time. A gorgeous ambience can be created with the candle light, the rich tones of the foliage and berries and the wealth of textures that just seem to lend themselves better to the colder months, like faux fur and tweed. There’s definitely something special about the bleakness of Winter and this has been captured to perfection in today’s shoot from Launcells Barton.
If you’ve fallen for the venue as much as we have, then make sure you’re registered to attend their open day NEXT WEEKEND, there are just a few spaces remaining.
Nadine and John’s relaxed, beautifully styled big day is just one of the gorgeous real weddings you’ll find in the RMW Book ‘Your Day Your Way’, which is released in less than a month’s time! If you didn’t know we had a book coming out, then head over to Amazon for a preview. It’ll be available to buy from 9th Feb (eekkkk!) but you can preorder now, if you’d like.
If you got engaged over the Christmas period it’ll be really helpful with guiding you through planning your big day while keeping true to your own style. Even if you’ve got lots of your planning ticked off, it’s full of stunning, exclusive imagery that will hopefully provide you with some serious eye candy and maybe some last minute ideas to borrow for your own wedding day.
Nadine and John’s wedding is in the book because they most definitely did things their way – getting ready together, walking down the aisle together, Nadine wore blush pink and they chose an industrial warehouse style space in London to hold their reception. It’s a gorgeous wedding day which shows you that if you stick to the things you love as your starting point, then you’ll always end up with a day that is cohesive, stylish and completely personal to you.
I literally cannot stop gawking at these beautiful images from Jason Mark Harris. Just everything about the couple portraits is perfect – the light, the horses, the stunning background of the Isle of Wight, the couple’s arms around each others waists as they walk of into the sunset…honestly it’s all just beyond romantic.
And I haven’t even mentioned Lucy’s blush pink ‘Tamsin’ dress by Catherine Deane. I have a tulle addiction, especially so when it’s pink and so this dress has knocked me for six.
Then there’s the gorgeous blooms, which are seemingly never ending! Just wait until you see inside the marquee! It’s simply stunning.
You may remember a few weeks ago we shared a London engagement shoot with a gorgeous Bride-to-be wearing a particularly lovely midi skirt and mustard yellow jumper…well today we’re very excited to be sharing Maggie & Sam’s wedding. It’s in London again, with two very gorgeous, but very different venues – eighteenth century mansion Clissold House and cool industrial space 06 St Chad’s Place. It’s a day that’s full of colour and fun – the yellow and grey scheme looks fabulous and works perfectly with the little lego men favours, meticulously sourced by the couple.
Maggie and Sam also had a Chinese Tea Ceremony as part of their big day, meaning that Maggie got to wear two lovely dresses, one by Catherine Deane and a stunning red dress to honour Chinese tradition.
The new Catherine Deane collection is just stunning. I think I may be a little bit in love with each and every one. Oh, but that blush Tamsin dress is just utterly beautiful. Romantic and dreamy. You could twirl all night in that one.
Gabija & George married at George’s family home. They had planned an outdoor ceremony, but in true British style, the dark grey clouds rolled in, the heavens opened and everyone had to decamp to the kitchen. The ceremony was completed in front of the Aga, surrounded by their closest family and friends, in the home where George grew up. Don’t you think there’s just something so romantic and lovely about that?
I have a total girl crush on Gabija – I love that she did an outdoor yoga session to relax before the day began, I love that she did her flowers herself, I love her bold red lip and I’m head over heels for her blush ‘Tamsin’ dress by Catherine Deane. She’s a beautiful Bride and we think her and George make a very stylish couple – he’s sporting burgundy Hugo Boss for a start!!!
It’s just basically one big party (which seems to be theme of this weekends weddings) and every looks like they are having the time of their lives!
This is such a gorgeous way to celebrate your marriage – Araminta & Martyn held an intimate candlelit dinner for their closest friends and family following their church ceremony and it just looks so sophisticated, but full of warmth and love at the same time. The table was brimming with red blooms, metallic votives and ivory candles, which truly came into their own as dusk fell, creating such a magical place in which to dine.
We’re also swooning over Araminta’s Catherine Deane gown – the tulle!! It’s heavenly! And that bespoke polka dot veil too – such a lovely Bridal look. And wait until you see the floral arch that decorates the church…there are so many gorgeous things in this wedding, let’s take a look…
Oh my! We’ve got a bit of a romantic do for you this morning…all ice-cream shades and tails and sparkly bridesmaids. Get those pinning fingers at the ready!!
Alex and James married at River Cottage, a venue they both knew and loved and had earmarked long before they were even engaged (I ruddy love that!) and it’s not hard to see why. With their gorgeous ceremony outside (complete with ribbon tying ritual), evening dancing in the barn, River Cottage catering (you just know the food will be good!) and to top it all off, a yurt with a roaring log fire, you would be hard pressed to say no.
They accessorised the venue perfectly with a delicate Catherine Deane bridal gown, the prettiest pumps, lace bunting and gypsophila and a heapful of love and laughter. Just beautiful!
Move over marquee there is a new bad boy in town. Katie and Rich had a stretch tent in Katie’s parents’ back garden and I think it looks stunning! They put some work in to that garden and it is amaing. They created some sort of mini garden in the middle of the tent and it is just, well, see for yourself… The perfect place for a table for two. And I looooove the centrepieces. So original and… different.
“…fill a venue with pretty things that you love you will have a beautiful wedding.” I think Katie has hit the nail on the head. And boy did she do just that. She also has some very sound advice for those of you who are having to source a lot of your own suppliers. And it was all sumptuously captured by the talented Kirsten Mavric. Oh, and there’s a very cute dog involved.
