There are some weddings that simply make your heart soar, and this London summer wedding – filled with beautiful family moments and a fantastic floral arch – is one such celebration. I won’t give anything away, as bride and groom Chloe & Ben tell the story best in their own words, but suffice to say you might want your hankies out for this one. Let’s just say, you’re never too old to find love!
Roxy and Liam are outrageously good looking and their gorgeous York city centre wedding is every bit as aesthetically pleasing as the couple themselves. Roxy wears a Phase Eight wedding dress which fits her like a glove and is a great reminder never to discount the high street when it comes to bridalwear. We’ve featured lots of Phase Eight brides over the years, and I have to admit they always look spectacular (check out Philippa and Lucy for further evidence)…
The couple chose the fabulous Middletons Hotel to host their big day, a gem of a venue hidden in the heart of York. If you like stylish, city weddings with a touch of history and lots of flowers, then this wedding is definitely for you.
We’ve long recommended looking outside of the world of weddings to find inspiration for your own big day. Often interior and floral trends can be seamlessly transferred into wedding design, and using these influences ensures your styling is completely unique and visionary. With that in mind, we’re sharing this beautiful minimalist inspiration shoot from Anemone Style and Genevieve Wedding Photography to show you just how this is achieved.
The styling here allows the incredible lofty venue to breathe and really celebrates each element of design – from the delicate and considered florals by Kitten Grayson, to the ceramic plates from Lucia Fraser. It’s paired back, minimal elegance at it’s very best.
In a world of ostentatious wedding design and endless imagery, we like to think RMW is a breath of fresh air. We feature weddings that are completely true to each couple, reflecting their tastes and personalities, rather than conforming to what a wedding ‘should’ look like. Ashley and Paul’s big day does this in spades and then some. They took a very relaxed approach to planning and let their suppliers have lots of creative control, Ashley sums up the result perfectly –
‘In the end, something we didn’t have full control over became fully perfect to us. It’s all verging rather close to some kind of moral or life lesson: that maybe the best weddings, and relationships, happen when you let go of total control, trust the people around you, and make room for a little bit of alchemy.‘
Enjoy this one beauties, and please savour every last word from Ashley, she writes with such flair and ease, it’s a joy to read her and Paul’s wedding report…
Anna and Ben’s intimate, stylish London wedding is just the slice of cool we need for a Wednesday morning. The creative pair held their big day on a modest budget, but with some savvy venue hunting and one VERY generous bridesmaid, the pair pulled of the wedding of their dreams, which is what it’s all about. Your dreams, your day, your way.
I’m pretty sure you’re going to love the succulent filled bouquets, Anna’s cohesive design work which ties every element of the big day together beautiful, and the Krispy Kreme tower which seem to be having a bit of a come back at the moment. Donuts are the new cupcakes…again…
Images come from the wonderful Fern Edwards whose style matches the chilled vibe of Anna & Ben’s day to an absolute tee. Enjoy lovely ones and anyone who is searching for a London venue with a low minimum spend – then do check out The Refinery.
My jaw hit the floor when I saw these images from Pablo Laguia and I just knew we had to share them with you all. If anyone is questioning why you need to have a huge over the top wedding and spend a fortune, then the answer is you don’t – you could do it like Sophie and Reeda and just have a really special day for the two of you.
Paloma of Paloma Cruz Eventos, along with the fab Grace and Thorn team on the florals, has done the most amazing job of styling an intimate dinner party setting. It looks like a really chilled Saturday night in with your besties, except everyone is dressed to the nines looking gorgeous!
Nina and Damian’s wedding is the epitome of our mantra – ‘your day, your way.’ They held an intimate civil ceremony at Islington Town Hall, followed by a family dinner. Then they held an Indian wedding blessing and a big party in the coolest space, Tanner Warehouse. Every part of (both) weddings was personalised to the include the things they love, making this wedding truly unique and a total pleasure to look at.
Nina’s lavender sari is absolutely beautiful. I’ve been longing to see a Bride in this gorgeous shade ever since I saw this wedding, so it’s a real treat to share this big day with you all. The images come from We Heart Pictures whose work we always love to feature, Hector and Charlie capture weddings in such an honest, fun way that you feel as if you’re there, soaking up every last moment with the couple, just from looking at them.
I’ve loved this wedding dress from Katya Katya Shehurina ever since I clapped eyes on it’s delicate-lace-pink-underlay loveliness and so it’s SUCH a pleasure to finally blog a real wedding with the Bride wearing it!!! And doesn’t Carly wear it well?
London weddings at Islington town hall always have a really cool vibe and this one is no exception. With a pub reception at The Peasant too, it’s all about good food, good drink and good times. The menu for this wedding day made me salivate. Seriously good grub. As well as being self proclaimed foodies, Carly and Sam are also really into their music and so that was a really crucial component of the day for them too. It sounds like a proper party went down in Clerkenwell on their wedding night…
Hannah and Nick decided to plan a ‘p*ss up in a brewery’ for their wedding day. Yes, those are their words, not mine and I’m pleased to report they pulled it off perfectly and with real style too. LOVE that Hannah incorporated her pretty botanical prints from home with the on-the-day decor. We always recommend looking to your belongings to work out how you’d like to style your wedding day as it results in a look that is completely true to you.
The best thing about marrying in an industrial city building is the incredible photo opportunities and this wedding is just brimming with them. The shots of Hannah and Nick on the roof of The Tetley building are SO dramatic. Ryan of Shutter Go Click has captured the essence of the couple and the venue perfectly.
