BUDGET £10 – 12.5K
Start your day in the most joyful way with this seriously sweet wedding; I honestly think it may make my heart burst. Bride and groom, Jacqueline and Sheldon, got engaged seven years ago in Santorini, on a night when there was both an earthquake and a lunar eclipse! Jump forward almost a decade – and a house and two children later – and here we are on their wedding day: a day that could not be more delightful. For a start, we have a high street wedding dress. All the heart eyes. For seconds, we have a pub venue. So fun! And for thirds, we have the cutest flower girl and page boy, who fill this day with utter wonder. There are so many magic moments captured in this album, but do keep an eye out for my favourite photo, that of the couple’s five-year old daughter jumping to catch confetti on the steps of Old Marylebone Town Hall. Picture perfect.
If you listened to this week’s Rock My Wedding: The Podcast, then you’ll have heard that the average spend on wedding dresses by Rock My Wedding readers was £1,574.76*. (And if you haven’t listened yet, why not? Get thee over to iTunes/Acast/your usual podcast provider and wrap your ears around this week’s episode, which is all about The Dress). So this week I have made it my mission to hunt down some affordable high street wedding dresses for you: all the gorgeousness of a boutique buy but at a fraction of the price.
Roxy and Liam are outrageously good looking and their gorgeous York city centre wedding is every bit as aesthetically pleasing as the couple themselves. Roxy wears a Phase Eight wedding dress which fits her like a glove and is a great reminder never to discount the high street when it comes to bridalwear. We’ve featured lots of Phase Eight brides over the years, and I have to admit they always look spectacular (check out Philippa and Lucy for further evidence)…
The couple chose the fabulous Middletons Hotel to host their big day, a gem of a venue hidden in the heart of York. If you like stylish, city weddings with a touch of history and lots of flowers, then this wedding is definitely for you.
We’ve featured many a gorgeous wedding at dry hire wedding venue Trinity Buoy Wharf in London, you only have to search our archives to see all the fabulous ways our couples have decorated it.
Kiera and Adam used the whole venue, having their civil ceremony in The Electricians Shed and their reception at The Chainstore. They filled both spaces with an abundance of fairy lights, floral garlands, and fabulous decor with everything planned to perfection by Utterly Wow.
Giving us all the feels with her captures is the lovely Claudia Rose Photography, who Kiera & Adam found on an RMW feature. Plus you’ll never guess where Kiera got her stunning bridal gown from…
This has to be one of the sweetest weddings I’ve ever seen. A bold statement I know, but there is an undeniable sentiment that just oozes out of this intimate wedding captured by Bai & Elle Wedding Photography that you can’t deny.
Laura’s love for the book The Secret Garden lead to the gorgeous venue in Kent and also became the theme for their day. A whimsical outdoor ceremony and conservatory setting full of DIY decor, collected trinkets, wild flower arrangements, and a delicious looking afternoon tea wedding breakfast.
And possibly the most shocking considering its beauty is this gorgeous wedding cost less than £5000!
This is such a lovely wedding to end the week on – especially given that we had such a positive response to our posts on ignoring wedding trends on Monday. Ellie and Nick certainly didn’t adhere to any trends. They didn’t have a day filled with decor and DIY, they had a day filled with family and love. They did the traditions that were important to them. Ellie wore a high street dress (and looked beautiful). And everyone had an absolutely lovely time.
Also after a bitterly cold week here in the UK, it will provide you with a very welcome warm moment – those Greek skies are just so blue. I’m dreaming of basking in that sunlight. Only three months left ’til Spring! Happy Friday everyone 🙂
