The English Riviera is so picturesque with its sandy beaches, fossil cliffs and quaint towns. Lending itself perfectly to this Devon elopement captured by RMW, recommended supplier, Emily Black Photography. There are bridal separates, boho headdresses, and an intimate picnic, complete with a cheese board and shell wedding cake. Plus, the most beautiful blooms with white and orange flowers mixed with dried grasses and foliage. Ready to take a look? Thought so!
John and Niamh had a stretch tent wedding ceremony and marquee reception at Roscarrock Farm filled with true Cornish / Irish rustic details. They DIYed bunting made of fabric, shells and driftwood. Plus, they made wooden pallet signs and included flower pots everywhere as Niamh runs her own nursery. Their ceremony was conducted by their friend and featured a very special sand ceremony where they invited their mums to mix sands from their shores (Cornwall and Sligo) in a glass bowl. There was also a sea shanty group entertaining guests during the drinks reception and a brass band to get everyone onto the dance floor. With so many more personal touches and special moments captured by Alexa Poppe Photography, it’s not to be missed!

A super relaxed wedding in Jersey for this travel-loving couple, with a globe guest book and a map seating chart! Wanting the feel of an intimate elopement, this couple chose to tie the knot in a remote coastal location in Jersey, made even more special by the fact it was the grooms childhood home! Wanting to make sure the decor was recycled and sustainable, so focused on making a lot of the pieces themselves, such as the ceremony arch, the place names and growing their own flowers whilst also making hundreds out of paper! There was also a very special guest, their beloved pet dog, who had a key role in the ceremony as the ring bearer!

A traditional church ceremony with the bride in a stunning lace edge veil and strapless wedding dress, followed by an English country reception. Located in the Isle of Wight, Appuldurcombe House played host to this celebration, with its Baroque architecture detailing and ruins all styled perfectly with candlestick centrepieces and beautiful green foliage. The bride and groom travelled in style from the church to the reception in the groom’s fathers Aston Martin allowing the couple to steal a few moments and enjoy the breathtaking views together. After the classic church wedding, it was really important for this couple that all of the guests had a good party, with excellent food and drinks flowing long into the night.

We love a Peony wedding bouquet here at RMW HQ and we were not disappointed when we saw Claire & Drew’s floral arrangements, swoon! This Isle of Wight wedding proves that you don’t have to travel too far to have a gorgeous wedding next to the sea. Set on the Bembridge coast where Drew proposed, Westcliff is the most picturesque pink house sitting right on the beachfront providing a beautiful backdrop to the days celebrations. It not only stole the couple’s heart but it’s stealing a little bit of ours too!
