This ‘barnquee’ wedding is a first for us – but we certainly hope not a last, as the marriage of barn and marquee is sheer brilliance. Claire & Andrew look completely at home in the rustic luxe setting – perhaps unsurprising when their love story started just down the road in St Andrews, where they met as students – which comes complete with its own 16th-century castle, boasting 10 bedrooms and 44 acres of land. Foliage and florals dominate the styling, with perfectly placed urns and arches stealing the show, as well as some fabulous botanical wallpaper in the barnquee. Genius. Plus, with the groom in a kilt, the bridesmaids in tonal dresses by Ghost and the bride in Charlie Brear, there is so much pretty lurking in every single corner. Smitten? Just a little.
You’d be dotty not to be, well, dotty for this fantastic wed fest set in an old veterinary college in Edinburgh. The bridesmaids burnt orange dresses – sourced from Australia – add an amazing autumnal colour to proceedings and look so good with the beautiful botanicals and foliage which frame the dissection room where dinner was served. Bride Siobhan is a total babe, pairing her stunning Charlie Brear gown (oh hello cheeky leg split!) with a Frida Kahlo-inspired flower crown and polka dot wedding veil. All together now, she wore an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot… oh wait…
To quote Claude Monet “I must have flowers always and always” and this city wedding full of bright blooms is most definitely satisfying my needs this morning. Your pinning fingers are going to go into overdrive when you see the floral arch entering into the fabulous St JOHN restaurant and bar, not to mention the just picked bouquets.
Also making my weak at the knees is Bride Jodie’s Charlie Brear gown. I love the delicate tulle top layer over the sleek strapless gown, so edgy, cool and chic all at the same time. Plus Jodie’s red lipstick against her porcelain skin & white blonde locks makes her look like an elfin princess.
This laid back wedding culminates in a trip around London on a red route master bus, a fabulous reception with pavlova wedding cake, and of course copious amounts of live music, bubbles, love and fun. All captured by the super talented Verity Quirk.
Firstly what a weekend, the weather was absolutely glorious wasn’t it, we hope you all had the best time with loved ones, and to continue the gloriousness we thought we’d share this colourful, eclectic wedding at the Victoria Baths in Manchester.
Your eyes are instantly drawn to the vibrancy of the blooms, complimented beautifully by glittering gold bridesmaids dresses and finishing touches. Then your jaw will hit the floor when you see bride Charlotte’s Charlie Brear gown, complete with tasseled skirt and Juliet cap veil.
After you’ve poured over the images by Emma Case Photography, you should definitely make yourself comfortable and read groom Matt’s report. Not only does he say romantic things about Charlotte, but he also has a wealth of advice.
Bath is such a beautiful place I can totally understand why this gorgeous couple would wanted to marry there. Not just in any location, at the fabulous Assembly Rooms and Roman Baths too. Photographer Steph Newton literally must have thought all her Christmas’s had come at once, capturing the love amongst such historic and beautiful surroundings, and oh my are the pictures dreamy.
A lot of thought and detail went into this contemporary wedding. None more so than the fashion. With the Groomsmen donning sharp navy blue suits and the Bridesmaids in fabulous coral frocks from the high street, But last and no means least Bride Laura who wore a sumptuous Charlie Brear gown adding a touch of glamour to the day. I’d also very much like to steal her earrings and shoes. SO pretty.
From the pastel painted walls of the Assembly Rooms to the aged brick of the nearby buildings and the chalky colours of the raw stone around the roman Baths, every photo is engulfed in colour, history & love. What a day!
If you are still searching for floral inspiration then I think your search may be over when you see the stunning creations by RMW recommended supplier Mrs Umbels. I just couldn’t resist sharing all the pretty florals for you to pore over. From big bloomsey wild bouquets, to single stems in vases, not forgetting the delicate flower crown and wrist corsages for the little ones. All in the sweetest pastel shades using seasonal spring blooms of ranunculus, grape hyacinths, roses and eucalyptus, and all looking incredible.
The fashion is also spectacular. Bride Kitty allowed her bridesmaids to pick their own gowns from Look Book members Ghost, which although in different hues and styles compliment each other perfectly. Then there is Kitty who is the picture of elegance in Charlie Brear. Opting for a Haliton dress with Catroux lace skirt. It couldn’t have been a more perfect choice for their idyllic classic country wedding at Norwood Park in Nottinghamshire.
Matt Horan Photography has captured all the details as well as the emotive story of this wedding in such a beautiful way. The last portrait in the slider above literally made my heart ache, my eyes well and my face beam.
There is something so magical about autumnal light that gets us every time. Especially when you see it flooding through the beautiful stain glass windows of The Asylum in London. What a heady combination.
Also making us feel all fuzzy inside is Bride Cat who looks an absolute vision in her Charlie Brear gown, and like me I’m certain you will have serious hair envy for her cute tousled ponytail. Also pretty swoon worthy are her best girls dressed in adorable mis-match blush separates from Reiss.
Such a relaxed, laid back wedding in the city that screams style. Wait until you see the DIY copper spray painted vases too, all captured beautifully by Haywood Jones Photography.
Let’s make no bones about it, I’m the first person to fall in love with absolutely EVERY wedding we feature that takes place in France. And Rebecca and Sam’s is no exception, think permanent September sunshine over rolling hills and romantic vineyards.
Rebecca looks beautiful in her Charlie Brear gown and her relaxed up-do is a thing of your wildest pinterest dreams. I love the simplicity of the decor and the chateau makes the most enchanting backdrop, altogether the whole affair looks like the perfect fairytale.
Oh my days. I mean would you just take a moment to look at that glorious image of Sam and her girls at the top in the slider there. Don’t they look amazing with their oversized bouquets and perfectly peach frocks. Utterly dreamy.
It doesn’t stop there either. There is the cutest flower girl complete with floral crown, a rustic bicycle made for two complete with basket of blooms and all kinds of portrait gorgeousness outside a greenhouse. I’m in heaven looking at the images.
Sam’s Charlie Brear frock looks as if it was made especially for her and I love the family history that is entwined with the duo’s choice of venue. I won’t reveal too much here and let Sam tell you about it herself; suffice to say though that it is so sweet.
