We are utterly obsessed with this magical matrimony, which truly is romance made real. The Riding School at Calke Abbey, a National Trust property in Derbyshire, is a stunning no corkage wedding venue with high ceilings and exposed brickwork, which Megan & Kurt style superbly with soft drapery, fairylights, pretty florals and the pièce de résistance: a moon gate altar. Megan’s must have – ghost chairs – have set our hearts aflutter here at RMW (we totally get why they were top of her wishlist), and just when we thought this wedding couldn’t get any better we spy leather jackets, a doughnut wall and a glitter bar. Do not miss groom Kurt with a sparkly blue beard!
When Abbi from Save The Date magazine sent over her wedding, I literally let out a squeal of joy – it’s THAT good. The level of detail is just unreal, the flowers are incredible, the styling is spot on and the dresses, well let’s just say you’re totally spoiled on the fashion front too. Abbi and Ash have created the most incredible day, full of surprises and delights for guests and I have a feeling you’re going to LOVE it. It’s brining all of those cool Aussie vibes we love to lust over and this lucky pair were fortunate with the weather too!
They chose the incredible pairing of Matt Horan and This Modern Revelry to capture their day. I’ve included a LOT of images in this feature as I think you need to see it all, from every angle 😉 and make sure you watch the fun film from This Modern Revelry too as it put a huge smile on my face. This is one hell of a wedding guys, so buckle up – you’re in for a ride!
I’ve been looking forward to blogging this gorgeous wedding for a while. As soon as Matt Horan sent over some sneak peaks I knew it was going to be something special. Sharing the images with the team and judging their reactions, it was clear that it was going to be more than special – this wedding is truly extraordinary. Karen and Jonathan filled their venue with cherry blossom and the result is nothing short of spectacular. Throw in some serious attention to detail on the decor, a bronze hued Watters wedding dress and some stunning florals and you’ve got yourselves a dream wedding day.
As always, the images from Matt Horan are beautiful – all the light and love captured in such a magical way. And bonus points to Karen and Jonathan who discovered Matt via Rock My Wedding and flew him out to California to capture their big day. It was worth every penny, as you’re about to see…
Bride Holly made full use of all her family and friends, asking them to sew, bake, craft and even create her gorgeous autumnal dahlia and ranunculus bouquet. The talent is overwhelmingly fabulous and adds a wonderful, sentimental and personal touch to this beautiful vintage inspired Buckinghamshire Railway Centre ceremony and village hall reception.
She even knows the wonderful talent that is Matthew Horan Photography, which RMW literally can’t get enough of at the moment. He has such a fantastic eye for capturing all the emotional and candid moments, as well as all the details and inspiration in such an artistic way that it makes you feel you right there with the gorgeous couple celebrating with them. And boy do I wish I was at this DIY wedding.
If you are still searching for floral inspiration then I think your search may be over when you see the stunning creations by RMW recommended supplier Mrs Umbels. I just couldn’t resist sharing all the pretty florals for you to pore over. From big bloomsey wild bouquets, to single stems in vases, not forgetting the delicate flower crown and wrist corsages for the little ones. All in the sweetest pastel shades using seasonal spring blooms of ranunculus, grape hyacinths, roses and eucalyptus, and all looking incredible.
The fashion is also spectacular. Bride Kitty allowed her bridesmaids to pick their own gowns from Look Book members Ghost, which although in different hues and styles compliment each other perfectly. Then there is Kitty who is the picture of elegance in Charlie Brear. Opting for a Haliton dress with Catroux lace skirt. It couldn’t have been a more perfect choice for their idyllic classic country wedding at Norwood Park in Nottinghamshire.
Matt Horan Photography has captured all the details as well as the emotive story of this wedding in such a beautiful way. The last portrait in the slider above literally made my heart ache, my eyes well and my face beam.
Every detail of this wedding has a personal touch or is bursting with sentiment.
I adore Bride Kayleigh’s gown, especially as it was handmade by her Mum, talk about talented. The gorgeous lace and that open back are simply stunning, and If anybody would like to gift me a pair of Valentino Rockstud’s that’s more than ok by me…..
I love that there was only one place for the marquee reception too, that being Kayleigh’s parents farm, with friends and family rallying around to bake cakes and craft DIY decor to create the perfect rustic haven to celebrate.
This fabulous wedding just goes to show you can have a truly beautiful day your way whatever your budget.
This is one of those weddings where I really, really, REALLY struggled to select which images to feature, as they are all beautiful! From start to finish, everything about this Italian destination wedding is just perfection…
The fashion, the venue, the flowers, the decor, the photography – honestly, it ALL has me weak at the knees. We feature incredible weddings on RMW but this is one of those that has stolen my heart, it’s the gorgeous atmosphere captured in the photographs as well as how stunning everything is of course!! I think from my total lack of eloquence you can tell that I’m not sure where to begin with describing it to you, so I’m just going to let you enjoy the images from Matt Horan and let Heather tell you all about it!
Enjoy this absolute cracker of a wedding lovely ones.
