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.
Heathcliff fans: rejoice! This sensational Scottish wedding has more than a hint of Wuthering Heights to it, with low-level lighting in the form of a fabulous festoon light canopy, foliage features reflecting the rugged rural coastline outside – and lashing wind and rain, which did not dampen Clare & Steven’s spirits, but in fact makes for the most mesmerising and magical couple’s portraits. Honestly, they’re spectacular. Add in a delicious drippy wedding cake, perspex signs, a tree-lined aisle and the groom in his family’s tartan kilt for a truly romantic treat. Ready, set, swoon.
Unleash your inner magpie, for this wedding is all about the sparkle! Metallic confetti cannons, sparklers, a glitter artist and the bride’s stunning sequin drop waist dress ensure this East London wedding shines from start to finish. The couple’s six month-old son also has a star turn in a mini kilt, matching that of his dad. Cuteness overload.
Sarah and Steven married on the edge of Loch Lomond, which has to be up there with one of the most beautiful places in the world. They were incredibly lucky with the weather and the sun shone down on their big day, meaning they could go ahead with a ceremony right at the edge of the water. It’s just magical.
Sarah planned lots of their big day from Australia and managed to DIY loads of components too – which is no mean feat when you’re on the other side of the world. Lots of organisation, online shopping and an obvious LOVE for wedding planning definitely helped 😉 The final result is gorgeous, really homespun and heartfelt.
Images come from Maureen Du Preez whose dreamy style always inspires me. Enjoy this one lovelies!
Lovely couple Cheryl & Mpho were in a car accident just 6 weeks before their big day. It resulted in Cheryl breaking BOTH of her ankles. How she managed to look this gorgeous AND walk down the aisle is absolutely amazing.
The images from Jennifer Moyes of this very happy South African wedding have captured the essence of the day perfectly, there’s nothing posed or staged – everyone looks so happy and there’s a lot of hugging going on. I suppose being in an serious car accident makes all the emotions of a wedding day even more acute and it shows in everyones faces. Congratulations Cheryl & Mpho!!!
Long standing readers of RMW will recognise this morning’s beautiful Bride…
Sarah of ‘One Jolly Girl’ fame is a previous Real Bride competitor and so we’re thrilled to be bringing you her wedding this morning!
You may have seen her work at Real Bride Karen’s wedding (where she made the cake) and you can’t have failed to notice her appreciation for a man in a kilt…I don’t doubt she went weak at the knees when she saw husband Angus on their wedding day!
As I’m sure Angus did when he saw Sarah in her fishtail Justin Alexander number. She looks so beautiful, radiant and happy.
Sarah and Angus outdid themselves with their gorgeous Scottish beach wedding. The Tunnock’s branding style stationery looks amazing, the whole beach ceremony set-up is stunning and of course, Sarah’s wedding cake looks absolutely delicious.
Without further ado, I’ll pass you over to Sarah to tell you all about her and Angus’ big day…
