Displaying family wedding photos at your own nuptials is a wonderful way of including your parents, grandparents and siblings in your big day. You can display on any backdrop in your venue that’s suitable. We chose to use a gorgeous apple tree to make the perfect setting for a family tree, but you could easily hang this from an archway or beams, depending on the venue.
This quirky Scottish wedding literally screams our ethos Your Day Your Way and we absolutely LOVE it.
With the gorgeous couple turning their home into their reception venue and having the ultimate house party. Decorating it with more than a few amusing DIY signs, a gin bar and leading guests from the pub lunch wedding breakfast to their party central with a fabulous brass band procession through the city streets.
Sophie & Colin look so relaxed and at ease with their guests and each other, and are literally having the time of their lives. This is one epic party I would have loved to have been at. Rock My Wedding faves Tub of Jelly have captured every essence of this couples personality not to mention all the delicious decor. You just HAVE TO check out the video below too, it’ll put you in a good move for weeks.
Adding to the uniqueness of this intimate wedding is Sophie’s gorgeous Zimmerman gown. She looks like an absolute siren with it fitting in all the right places. You would not believe it only cost a mere £100! And not to be forgotten groom Colin who also sports a dashing red Slaters waistcoat that POPS under his Harris Tweed jacket fabulously.
Shall we take a look? Guaranteed you’ll be beaming from ear to ear, and giggling at all their signage.
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!
There is SO much fabulous DIY decor at this gorgeous same sex wedding at Greenwich Yacht Club in London. I especially adore the gin bottle table plan, centrepieces and signs full of fun gin-ism’s. I also absolutely adore the bunting ceiling canopy and boat origami backdrop, which have made all the ceremony pictures extra adorable.
Talking of adorable these beautiful brides brought along their pooch AJ to join in their nuptials and what a great addition he makes to the celebration. Continuing with not conforming to tradition, they also chose to cut shapes on the dance floor and share handmade mini gingerbreads & battenburgs with their guests rather than cut a cake and have a first dance. And why not in deed.
Both ladies look absolutely stunning in their wedding dresses. So sit back and enjoy double the bridal fashion and brace yourself for an epic pic of them in the rain captured by the oh so talented Anna Pumer Photography.
The show definitely went on at this gorgeous rustic wedding at Smallshaw Farm Cottages. After a few hiccups with suppliers and lots of support from family and friends rallying around to make everything perfect, Tamsin & Alvyn enjoyed their dream lace & hessian filled marquee reception & garden games just as they’d hoped. They were even joined by the resident cows which made a stunning natural backdrop for the photographs captured by Mike & Tom.
There’s a whole host of inspiration and DIY decor, including wooden signs, bunting and wild flowers in pitcher jugs, plus a yummy selection of homemade treats and divine cheese tower wedding cake. And did we mention Tamsin’s braided up do…. insert multiple heart emoji’s here. Enjoy.
This takes the term a white wedding to a whole other level! 5 inches of enchanting fresh snow covered The Ashes wedding venue and its already naturally beautiful setting. It was the true icing on the cake for an already stunning country house & rustic barn.
One Little Daisy photography not only captured an absolutely amazing Winter wonderland they also captured the pure unadulterated happiness and love Wendy & Eamon feel for each other, the ceremony pictures in particular are heart wrenchingly amazing, that lonely tear streaming down Wendy’s face and Eamon kissing her head tells a thousand tales.
Just like the sun shining in Summer you can’t guarantee the snow in Winter, so this mornings wedding feels like an extra special treat that will leave you feeling all warm inside…
We love a bride with a budget and lots of very helpful tips on how to stick to your budget. We know most of you have restrictions when it comes to how much you can spend and it’s great to read Mags’s story on how they compromised on certain areas to make sure they stayed within their set budget.
Mags is stunning with her shocking red hair (and super nails to match!), her Romona Keveza gown is epic and has an epic veil to boot. There’s lots of high street and lots of handmade and it has all been perfectly captured for your viewing pleasure by Mirrorbox Photogrpahy.
