When you’re planning a wedding, it’s SO easy to let the budget run away with you and spend spend spend like there’s no tomorrow. This savvy pair knew they wanted a beautiful wedding from the off, but also wanted to make sure they didn’t bankrupt themselves in the process. Between them and their amazing wedding guests, they’ve pulled off a gorgeous wedding, for less than 5k. Yep, you read that right, less than £5000. Want to know how they did it? Read on for the low down…
Line and Adam’s wedding is so laid back you can’t help but feel relaxed looking at the images from Dale Weeks. The pair chose the wonderful RMW recommended Nancarrow Farm as their venue and it’s gorgeous barn spaces, incredible home grown food and general lovely vibe was the perfect place for these lovebirds. (You can see more Nancarrow weddings here).
Line loves to knit (she runs a Nordic knitting blog) and Adam is a tree surgeon. And if you were to imagine a wedding that combined a love of knitting, with a love of trees, this is exactly how it would look…! We adore weddings like this, full of personality and fun and totally representative of the couple.
‘Frandy’ as this adorable couple are better known as are just a dream, as is their pretty country wedding. Saying their I dos under an oak tree at a sweet outdoor ceremony, and holding their fabulous reception in a corrugated iron rustic barn.
Of course no wedding is complete these days without a pimp your prosecco station, and a tower of cheese wedding cake, and no bridal party is as fierce unless they include men in navy suits, white bridesmaid dresses and bridal separates. And hey presto this wedding reception and party included all those fashion forward looks and immense wedding trends, with the lovely Dale Weeks Photography on hand to capture all the magic and style in his legendary way.
So happy to share Rachel & Chris’ fun London wedding. Filled with personal touches, surprise singing from the groom, romantic gestures and city intimacy it is a total joy. You can really tell how much Rachel & Chris love their City and how it has inspired their day.
The soft grey’s in Rachel’s dress and Chris’s suit make such an elegant pairing and the super cool venue, St John is giving me all the city thrills.
I think I have a little bit of a girl crush on bride Nat. She is ridiculously cool and looks both stylish and elegant in her vintage bridal separates designed by Saldana Vintage. Made with the most beautiful lace, and including an adorable crop top and full length skirt with front split, it really is the stuff of bridal dreams. Completing her look is a greenery flower crown, and an oversized white flower & foliage bouquet. The perfect boho edge.
The location for this contemporary wedding was the lovely Bell in Ticehurst, who will always have a special place in our hearts, first and foremost because of its epic neon “I will always love you my friend’ neon sign, but also because of its ability to bring family and friends together in the most intimate and relaxing way.
My love for the Casa Cornacchi Tuscan Country House wedding venue has been alive ever since we featured Real Bride Sophie’s wedding there a few years ago, so it’s an absolute treat to go back there today and see all the magic of Kerry & Jules’ intimate wedding captured by Dale Weeks Photography.
The surroundings are absolutely stunning and truly speak for themselves, and the minimal white flower decor compliments it beautifully. Add Bride Kerry in her stunning Sarah Seven gown and you have some serious destination wedding envy to feast your eyes upon.
Have you seen the golden light flooding through Bride Emily’s lace Benjamin Roberts (2650) gown yet? It’s enough to set your pulse racing it’s so beautiful. But make no mistakes, even though Emily’s gown is as traditional and classic as can be, she certainly has an alternative side; teaming it with a black leather jacket in the evening and looking über cool.
The fabulous Dale Weeks Photography captures all the magic and fashion of this rustic wedding at Southend Barns in Chichester, including so many beautiful moments between the gorgeous couple, and their little daughter, not to mention more of that fabulous golden, Spring light.
Bride Holly refers to her best girls as bridesbabes instead of maids. And they are, they truly are. Their mis-match high street grey dresses are to die for and look absolutely gorgeous against the greenery of the Welsh countryside and their giant foliage bouquets. Holly leads her ladies in an unbelievably stunning Emma Beaumont gown with an embellished top with loooong sleeves. But my absolute favourite details of the dress has to be the incredibly sexy low back and front spilt in the billowing skirt.
Tamsin and Alex are a little bit cool. Actually scrap that, they’re super cool. I mean a bride and groom who performs Pulp Fiction inspired choreography for their first dance has serious style points in my book and we haven’t even gotten started on their Lobster Shack wedding venue in the super pretty Whitstable.
Tamsin looks beautiful in her Alice Temperley frock and colour pop headpiece and Alex looks like a dapper dan in his light blue Suitsupply garb. All the action was captured magnificently by Dale Weeks.
