This French wedding inspiration has been giving us a lot to smile about this afternoon. From the beautiful pastel hues to the picturesque setting we can’t help but scream “Mais oui, Mais oui” at every last detail and capture Peaches & Cream Weddings, and the talented Matthieu Bondon Photography have portrayed for us today. Enjoy lovely ones, it’s a goodie.
Doesn’t Ellie look so elegant? Her Maggie Sottero gown with those pretty little capped sleeves, her gorgeous glitzy hair piece and those Emmy shoes are all giving me a serious case of the swoons. As is her wild unstructured bouquet in pastel tones, which is just bursting with dahlias and roses.
And wait until you see inside the marquee – if you like blush and gold, you’re going to love it! There’s lots of details to behold, so I’ll pass you over to Ellie to explain exactly how her and James created such a lovely look…
Happy Easter lovely readers, we hope you’re enjoying the four day weekend. We’ve got a gorgeous classic white wedding to share with you all today and it’s just brimming with fabulous details to swoon over. There’s no chocolate eggs, but there IS a delicious dessert table to satisfy your sweet tooth, which includes the prettiest personalised biscuits I’ve seen many a time on Pinterest, but never in ‘real life.’ And talking of food, look out for the gorgeously presented canapés too – today’s caters Jacaranda are on our Love Lust List recommended supplier directory, and it’s great to see their work in action.
As well as the food, the decor is fab too – the floral arch in the church is simply stunning and makes an incredible back drop for that first kiss as husband and wife. And the chalkboard signs, hand drawn by a friend of the couple, look really effective too.
This is one of those really pretty weddings, that manages to be elegant and rustic at the same time – which is actually not that easy if you think about it. But Charlotte & Kevin knew that their venue Newton Hall, was the perfect place to combine those two things.
We’re swooning over the pastel flowers, which seem to be tumbling over every surface imaginable, the bone china tea cups, the jam jar cocktails, the Dessy Bridesmaids dresses in sorbet shades, and Charlotte’s subtle bronze lined gown, Penelope by Watters, which is fabulous.
The perfect gown for swooshing on the beach in, which is exactly what she did. And the light in those beach portrait images by Sarah Jane Ethan? It’s just beautiful.
This morning we’re off to a vineyard in Quebec, Canada for a seriously pretty pastel wedding with one seriously gorgeous Bride. Emilie looks absolutely beautiful in a Hayley Paige gown, completed perfectly with a rose filled flower crown and bouquet – such a pretty look.
Photographer Camille Marciano has captured some of my favourite ever couple shots, you can feel the tenderness, understanding and chemistry between the pair just radiating from the images and despite the heavy rain, she managed to capture the beauty of the venue too. I don’t know what it is, but there is just something outrageously glamorous about a vineyard.
And actually, it turns out that the rain was actually a good thing, as the French saying goes, ‘a rainy wedding means a happy marriage.’ I do hope that applies to British washout weddings too…
This morning’s wedding is like a breath of fresh air. Pretty pastels, a bright white airy venue, crisp apple green details, a gorgeous group of maids and one very beautiful Bride.
Emma was one very lucky Bride too – she got to wear two gowns. For the ceremony, she wore a demure lace Augusta Jones dress with sweet cap sleeves and a sweeping train.
Then for the evening, Emma switched to a sequinned Jenny Packham gown comfortable enough to dance the night away in.
And if you’ve never come across stunning venue Aynhoe Park before then you’re in for a treat. It’s definitely a wedding venue with a difference…a supremely elegant 17th Century Palladian house sitting in 250 acres of Capability Brown gardens and on the inside…well, I’m not sure you’ll find a unicorn, a floating giraffe and a polar in aviation goggles anywhere else!
Emmie and Geoff’s pretty pastel wedding had me swooning from the very first image. It’s just bursting with gorgeous details and wonderful ideas that you could definitely recreate yourselves.
The baby pink and blue tin cans used as table centre pieces, the photo frame table plan, the chalkboard sign welcoming guests and the wooden signs directing guests to ceremony were all made by Emmie and Geoff, and their wonderful family and friends.
I think it’s fair to say that at RMW we LOVE shoes and Emmie’s something-blue pair are seriously gorgeous. Her lace, deep V backed gown is stunning too and continues the pretty colour scheme with that beautiful dusky pink bow.
Honestly, I’ll never tire of satin ribbon tied up in a bow.
If you’re inspired to recreate any of Emmie and Geoff’s ideas, then don’t worry – Emmie explains how she did it all below. (And if anyone makes a flying saucer or marshmallow tree – please make an extra to send to RMW HQ).
And if you’re feeling creative don’t forget all of our DIY projects can be found here.
As a true girly girl at heart – I adore this morning’s wedding. The colour palette of blush pink with dusky green and golden hues is beautiful. Bride Jules out did herself in achieving the soft and romantic look she was aiming for.
Just wait until you see the dreamy dessert table piled high with macarons, the elegant floral centre pieces and the wedding party in their pretty pastel coloured dresses.
Jules’ gown is stunning too, a strapless number with ruffled layers of lace. This Bride was lucky enough to find ‘the one’ and I can completely understand why this dress made her cry.
Today’s images come from the lovely Razia N Jukes, who has captured Jules and Tim’s day beautifully. For each image, the tone is just right. Anticipation, fun, laughter, love and joy are all clear to see.
Personally, I think it’s probably the best way to start to the week…and I really hope you’ll agree.
This morning’s wedding makes me very happy indeed. The pastel colour scheme is just so pretty. It draws together two venues and their natural surroundings, and Nancy’s vintage dress perfectly. The whole wedding has a nostalgic and dreamy quality to it – yet still manages to be stylish and contemporary.
I think it’s down to Nancy’s creativity and the wonderful photography from Mr Sleeve. Nancy is a make up artist (there are lots of great product recommendations for you, don’t worry). She did her own make up on the day and totally nailed the Audrey Hepburn meets Zooey Deschanel look she was going for. And Nancy has the delicate bone structure to rival both ladies.
And if you love wild flower meadow couple shots then you are in for a treat.
