Orangery Wedding Inspiration

We’ve all gone totally bonkers for glasshouse, orangery or clear marquee venues at Rock My HQ, it’s not hard to see why when they literally light up your wedding and illuminate every inch of the decor and details.

The lovely Holland Park, Kensington, London was the perfect backdrop for such elegant proceedings. From the immense hanging floral installation by Blue Sky Flowers, to the elegant tablescape, complete with ghost chairs and romantic candle light.

Every elements was planned and styled beautifully by Katie Stocks of The Events Designers, and working her magic behind the lens was Eva Tarnok Photography.

Botanical Boho Luxe

I really wish I could inhale this whole page and take in the scent of the fabulous florals by Floribunda Rose. They really bring this wonderful concept to life.

The thought behind the shoot, planned by Charlotte Nichols & designed by Fleur and Fig was based around timeless botanical with a slight nod to boho-luxe, combined with the natural backdrop of The Matara Centre venue, an abundance of fine art imagery by Philippa Sian Photography and a ‘destination’ wedding feel, and you have some pretty heady inspiration.

With a whole wealth of other talented suppliers and pretty to pore over, make sure you’re sitting comfortably so you can enjoy every inch of this botanical beauty.

Stef & Ciaran

Some of you lovely readers may remember real Bride Stef, who was planning a fabulous traditional wedding in Scotland (if not, you can catch up on her planning journey here on Rock My Wedding) and today, finally (!) we are sharing the results of all of her and Ciaran’s hard work.

It’s such a dreamy wedding, with a gorgeous stag motif, tulip bouquets, the prettiest purple Bridesmaids dresses and a knockout Suzanne Neville gown aptly named ‘Stunning.’ And it will have you swooning over Scotland…the scenery is just breathtaking and we’re totally jealous of that soft light – just wow.

I’m not going to waffle on, as I know Bride Stef has lots and lots to tell you all, so I’ll pass you over. Enjoy the images from Ten 21 Photography, and the film from White Balloon Films.

Natasha & Noah

We’ve got such a pretty wedding for you this morning – those of you who love vintage inspired weddings and pastel shades are going to absolutely love it. Natasha is a self confessed afternoon-tea-aholic (!) so she was always going to serve it as her wedding meal and this one looks particularly delicious. It’s the perfect food to serve at Cambridge Cottage in Kew Gardens – which is the former royal residence of the Duke of Cambridge don’t you know…

Keeping with the theme, Natasha opted for a tea length dress, which suits her down to the ground and was the ideal outfit to compliment Noah’s relaxed, no tie look. (If you’re looking for Groom outfit inspiration, have a look at Adam’s post on Groom style – who said ties were compulsory?!)

I think my absolute favourite thing from this wedding though is the blooms – they are just gorgeous. Frilly roses of various varieties, big blousey white peonies, dark lilac hydrangea heads, delicate blue-petaled pretties and pale green accents from succulents and foliage. Divine! (And if anyone can identify the blue ones for me I’d be a very happy bunny).

Helen & Simon

The flowers!

For a start they have my favourite hydrangeas in, but also they are just everywhere & I love that the bright blooms pop against the pastel bridesmaid dresses.

Helen & Simon’s wedding took place at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park. A classically elegant venue for a classically elegant wedding, all captured beautifully by one of our very own talented Love Lust List suppliers Claire Penn Photography.

I’m off to Pin like crazy as I’m still lusting after those epic blooms, also the shoes, also the dress, also the cakes!

Vintage And Piñatas At Mindaribba House.

Jackie-and-Craig

Oh Jackie and Craig you really do know how to throw an awesome wedding don’t you.

A party full of delicious handpicked blooms and floral bow tied ushers and lace shoes and actual wedding cake shaped piñatas. Well actually it’s just the one piñata but it’s so immense and so humongous that there very well could be more of them and we mean that in a totally good way!

Jackie’s Claire Pettibone gown is bound to induce a case of mass envy amongst our Rock My Wedding community too with its delicate capped sleeves and embroidered back detailing which she pairs so elegantly with the most wonderfully dainty headpiece. I think I actually need that headpiece in my life it is that beautiful.

Lastly the ‘guest’ DJ slots idea is pretty blinking fantastic too and I think more weddings should employ the idea. I’ll leave Jackie to tell you more about it!

In The Pink.

inthepink

This afternoon’s shoot is unashamedly pink and fluffy. It’s light hearted, oh-so pretty and sums up the phrase ‘girls just wanna have fun’ to perfection.

There’s the sweetest pink poodle, endless amounts of pink gift wrapped presents, a giant heart shaped balloon and bucket loads of blooms, with hues ranging from the palest blush to the brightest fuchsia.

And I haven’t even mentioned THAT dessert table yet, swelling under the weight of the most delicious looking goodies imaginable.

It really is like a birthday party from your childhood dreams…from the time when your favourite colour was unquestionably pink and you always wanted to wear your best frock, whatever the occasion.

Hmmmm, as far as team RMW is concerned, not much has changed…

The Best Thing Rock My Wedding Ever Did (Again.)

Cover-Image-quote

When we decided to create an on-line boutique we really didn’t know what to expect. As with anything you’ve never done before, it’s a steep learning curve complete with daily challenges and constant surprises.

We wouldn’t have it any other way though, there is never a dull (or even vaguely quiet) day at RMW HQ. “Boredom” doesn’t feature in our vocabulary.

Launching Rock My Boutique was a huge project for us, we hosted our biggest industry event to date and spent a significant amount of time scheming, dreaming and designing our first campaign “Big City Love“.

Those of you that have already seen AW12 will know it was very urban, quite…… edgy.

And so for Spring/Summer (let’s face it – we’ve kind of um…by-passed Spring already (!)) we decided to do something very different. Actually, we decided to create what might be considered the polar opposite of our disused-nightclub based Autumn/Winter shoot complete with a zillion spray-painted tins and break dancers….

2013-05-22_0001

Our new campaign is called “Coco” after one of Lolly and I’s favourite icons of all time…..Coco Chanel.

Think super super polished. Think sophisticated and clean and timeless. Think mercuried glass, sequins, feathers and an abundance of beautiful blooms. Think Provence in July with a generous dose of Parisian chic thrown in for good measure.

Think pretty. Really REALLY pretty.

We love the outcome of our latest adventure. And we’ve got everything crossed that you gorgeous lot will feel the same way.

The full shoot will be appearing first thing in the morning along with details of our new product range and the official collection shop launch.

For now we’ll leave you with our campaign film by the very talented Simon Clarke – he did such an awesome job of the last one how could we ask anyone else?

Plus frankly, he might be the only person on earth who could put up with my Miss bossy-boots director ways and verging-on-the- ridiculous requests.

With special thanks to a whole host of unbelievably creative Love Lust List suppliers who made this whole thing possible, you can find links to their websites in the credits below.

Enjoy lovelies.
