Ring the (‘kissing’) bell as we have one hell of a city wedding for you to pore over today. There are palm fronds, moss and succulents in terrariums, plus delicious sharing platters, a doughnut wall and signature cocktails to satisfy your appetite. Taking care of your fashion fix is Bride Alex’s stunning ‘Cassiopeia’ Jenny Packham wedding dress. We’re completely smitten with its soft hues and delicate embellishment, and think you’re going to love it too.
We love gorgeous bride Laura because she wore an elegant, heavily embellished Jenny Packham gown to her laid back, barn wedding. There’s a weird myth out there that you have to match your wedding dress to your wedding venue, which is pretty nuts if you ask me. Wear what you want, you’ll look and feel better for it!
Laura and Alex stuck to a fresh colour palette of greens and white, just adding a sprinkling of fairy lights to make things sparkle. Luckily Nick from Parkershots was on hand to capture all of the magic…
Lainston House is the backdrop for an elegant, sophisticated traditional wedding. We have featured this lovely venue before here. The bride shines in Jenny Packham and the Groom and his Groomsmen look fabulous in morning suits and grey waistcoats from Buckleigh of London.
Everything is connected beautifully, from the brick of the stunning venue and the blush rose gold details in the flowers and stationery. The style of the bridesmaid’s gown, the bride’s gown and the suits compliment each other and remain on the theme.
Jason Mark Harris is an RMW recommended supplier as a member of The List and has captured the day perfectly. In fact, this wedding features other recommended suppliers Dan Dolan Films and Alive Network. We love reading such lovely words about suppliers we chose to list in our exclusive directory if you are planning a wedding you really must stop by.
I always love a London wedding – Lizzie and Jamie’s gorgeous wedding day is no exception. The pair managed to convince the team at Bourne & Hollingsworth buildings to let them hold their reception there, and we’re SO glad they did. The space is just beautiful, so light and airy, filled with plants and vintage furniture. Top tip – chose a venue that looks as gorgeous as this one, and you’ll have so much less to worry about! The decor is all done for you. All Lizzie and Jamie needed was a little more greenery and some blooms from the amazing Worm London florists.
Lizzie dazzles in Jenny Packham’s Dixie gown and keeps things relaxed with a chunky braid in her hair, such a pretty look for brides and it suits Lizzie perfectly.
Images come from the lovely Through The Woods We Ran duo, who always capture the sense of fun in a wedding day, these photographs are just bursting with joy and I have a feeling you’re going to love them…
‘You are my sun, my moon, and all my stars.’ by E.E Cummings.
What a wonderful quote to base this nocturn inspiration shoot on.
From the purity of the twinkling stars in the crisp white and perspex outdoor ceremony set up, right through to the inky night sky and majestic tablescape in Godwick Hall‘s great barn. The Little Lending Company has curated a truly beautiful concept for us to swoon over.
Captured by the wonderful Agnes Black & The Wild Bride, this is definitely a shoot with so many achievable, gorgeous ideas you’ll want to bookmark and look at again and again, as well as recreate for you own big day. Enjoy.

Bridal collaborations don’t come much better than this. With an elegant, timeless presence on the high street, L.K.Bennett is our go-to for luxurious and feminine style, so when they joined forces with Jenny Packham, renowned for her embellished, romantic and ethereal gowns, we just knew the results would be gorgeous.
As well as sharing the collection with you all today, we also have a fabulous competition to win bridal shoes and a bag from the L.K.Bennett x Jenny Packham collection, along with four bridesmaids dresses from Jenny Packham x Dessy too…
Our fabulous couple today are not only bloomin’ adorable they are the epitome of cool too. Their Croatian destination wedding is both relaxed and elegant, with palm trees, stunning views over the Adriatic Sea and Dubrovnik’s ancient Old Town, and delicious details matching the surroundings perfectly.
Also making me swoon is their fabulous sense of style. Bride Cristina looks heavenly in a Rime Arodaky gown, with a lace back that is simply jaw dropping, add her dashing groom James who dons a pale blue Hugo Boss blazer and bow tie, and completing the bridal party are the bridesmaids in crisp white lace dresses. Together these gorgeous humans will have you rethinking your squad style in a heartbeat.
Capturing this fun and memorable wedding is the talented Jere Satamo. Be sure to look out for the coastal, golden hour portraits too as they are absolutely breathtaking.
There really is nothing I love more than a beautiful bridal look book – I’m all about the dress. The bride should be the star of the show and showcasing bridal wear in a way that truly highlights the detail and shape of the dress is really important. So this latest look book from White Mischief Bridal is right up my street. And not only are the dresses totally swoon worthy, but the whole shoot takes place on the beach. It’s utterly beautiful. The light, the simplicity, the elegance, the subtle sexiness, the freedom – I wish we could bottle this atmosphere and sell it to brides-to-be across the land.
Images come from Jason Williams, who has truly captured some stunning shots here. Enjoy beauties and if you haven’t found your dress yet then perhaps one of these might just be the ONE…
Anyone who reads this blog regularly will know that I really like dark and moody wedding styling (see here)…so when Carrie Lavers sent us over this dramatic inspiration shoot, my heart skipped a beat. I love how luminous the blooms from Lily Lupin, the stationery by Geri Loves Emi and the sparkling Jenny Packham gown look against the dark interiors of the venue, there’s still plenty of light to be found in this shoot. And there’s no lack of romance here either – with an abundance of flowers including some of the most gorgeous peonies I’ve ever seen!
The whole team behind this shoot are some of our favourites, so if you’re on the hunt for talented, stylish and seriously lovely suppliers then do get in touch. After you’ve swooned over all this pretty of course…
