Where to begin with this purple wedding? Let’s start with the rich colours and show-stopping floral moon gate which I’m sure you’ve pinned even before you’ve finished reading this sentence! Next, there’s a gold patisserie station full of individual treats that look, and I have on good authority, tasted divine. Plus the cutest cockapoo ring bearer and wedding party that totally rocked their Jesus Peiro and Needle & Thread dresses. When we deliver, we deliver, don’t we… You’re welcome.
We see lots of gorgeous fashion coming through Rock My Towers on a daily basis. We’re lucky to work in an incredibly creative industry where we have fantastic suppliers, such as those on our handpicked supplier directory, The List, coming out of our ears. But there is nothing quite like the squeal you might hear when the team are eyeing up Needle and Thread dresses.
As of today, Needle and Thread are one of our approved suppliers on The List, and so to celebrate we’re sharing with you the new A/W ’19 collection ‘Fallen for You’. Needle and Thread dresses are known for being exquisite, incredibly crafted with feminine embellishment and this new collection is the perfect example of that.
My heart always soars when I spy a London wedding, especially when I hear their budget was only £5000! Gorgeous Australian bride and groom, Lara and Josh, certainly made the most of North London’s offerings with an intimate ceremony at Islington Town Hall, followed by a foliage-filled, champagne-fuelled reception at the uber cool Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings. Photographed by Olivia & Dan – members of our handpicked wedding supplier directory The List – their big day is a picture-perfect story of love, laughter and happily ever after, not to mention a beautiful beaded Needle & Thread dress that looks like it was made just for Lara.
Valentines Day has just passed but we’re still feeling the love and absolutely smitten with this incredible Spring Equinox inspiration at Thorpe Manor by Sian from Revival Rooms. The floral arrangements have completely taken our breath away, and as for the mosaic bath and edible flower wedding cake, that’s every girl’s dream ‘me time’ right there isn’t it… apart from perusing Rock My Wedding of course!
Having a woodland wedding is always a little bit risky, but luckily for lovely Sarah and Jamie the sun shone down on them all day long, meaning they could enjoy their G&Ts in the warmth. Sarah looks like a mystical woodland fairy in her embellished Needle & Thread gown, which Jo from Enchanted Brides has captured beautifully. The dappled light under the trees is just gorgeous…
The lovely Leila and David had a mash-up of all the things they love and the results of this rustic, boho, outdoor summer garden wedding at Herons Farm are amazing. They incorporated lots of DIY decor, including a hoop table plan and a chalkboard unplugged ceremony sign. Plus wooden crates, family portraits, and a whole lot more for you to pin and swoon over.
Leila wears the prettiest sequin and tulle Needle and Thread gown with a flower crown, and David ops for Chinos, braces and a bow tie. Seriously it doesn’t get much cooler than that.
Capturing the magic was Carla Blain, who is one of our wedding supplier directory members and is fast becoming one of my favourite photographers. Her portraits are always full of emotion, as you’ll see below. Take the epic woodland smoke bomb pics for example, which as you know from a recent post team RMW wrote on Smoke Bombs I’m a HUGE fan of.
When you’re planning a wedding, it’s SO easy to let the budget run away with you and spend spend spend like there’s no tomorrow. This savvy pair knew they wanted a beautiful wedding from the off, but also wanted to make sure they didn’t bankrupt themselves in the process. Between them and their amazing wedding guests, they’ve pulled off a gorgeous wedding, for less than 5k. Yep, you read that right, less than £5000. Want to know how they did it? Read on for the low down…
Super competitive couple Charlotte and Ben run marathons in their spare time, so naturally their wedding day was high energy, with a couple of contests thrown in for good measure. From wedding bake offs, with actual medals, to the tug of war, the whole day was about everyone getting involved and having fun. And it’s clear from everyone’s faces that they had a wonderful day!
As well as Amy Fanton’s dreamy images, the couple chose This Modern Revelry to film their big day. According to Charlotte the wonderful Laura & Alan made them ‘feel like the lead singers in our very own music video.’ Which is surely exactly what you want from your wedding film?! It’s a lovely day, with beautiful styling and fabulous fashion choices (including Needle & Thread bridesmaids dresses), so I think it’ll be right up your street…
The lovely Lyndsey Anne Photography was inspired by the beautiful Scottish highlands natural tones, beautiful scenery and tranquility and fused all this together to plan and photograph a gorgeous highland bride elopement shoot.
The brides needle and thread floral gown, oversized bouquet and flower crown look incredible against the woodland setting, and the dappled light breaking through the trees looks magical. This low key inspiration really does prove that sometimes less really is more.
