Agnese & Ludovico

Everything about Italy is simply breathtaking. Take the romantic church this gorgeous couple chose to marry at for a start, gorgeous stonework, stunning architecture and picturesque views that go on for miles. The reception at the family home isn’t too shabby either ????. The table scape and decor of the reception perfectly mirrors the surrounding beauty and natural elements, think greenery, berries and rustic wooden calligraphy signs all culminating in the chicest of celebrations.

Bride Agnese looks like a modern day princess too in her Luisa Beccaria gown. There is nothing this dress doesn’t feature; pleats, lace, a gorgeous silhouette, it’s no wonder she’d fallen in love with the designers work before she was engaged. I have included lots of images of both the dress, styling and views by the very talented Matteo Crescentini Photography so you can swoon over and pin. Every. Last. Detail of this authentic Italian wedding day, because believe me you’re going to want to!

Matthew & Adam

These fabulous grooms and their contemporary wedding are so incredibly stylish I honestly don’t know where to begin…

Lets start with their sleek Tuxedos, both complimenting each perfectly but ensuring they reflect their own personalities. Then there’s their magical ceremony at The Epstein Theatre. The atmosphere must have been absolutely electric surrounded by those twinkly lights and vintage vibes, and how cool are the urban portraits captured by DSB Creative Photography with the bright graffiti wall backdrop.

After all the epic-ness above you’d think there wasn’t room for any more surprises, but then a red bus comes along and whisks guests off to the breathtaking Sefton Park Palm House for a reception surrounded by the botanics. With all its smiles and love this wedding will set you up for weekend beautifully.

Nina & Jesse

OMG this wedding!!! So many things I want to tell you about, but I think I’m going to let the beautiful pictures from Melissa Beattie do the talking. The flowers! The Dress! The CAKE!!!! Gahhh it’s just all too much. Nina and Jesse are one seriously stylish pair and they executed their Aynhoe Park wedding day with major flair…

Very proud that the couple found Melissa via RMW too – we love it when we help to connect you with suppliers you love! Especially when the results look like this!!!

Kate & Bobby

Kate and Bobby’s wedding has put a huge smile on my face, their joy is just infectious. Both are clearly head over heels for each other and it radiates from the images. The couple run a stationery design company together, Telegramme Paper Co. so naturally their wedding is wonderfully styled too.

Kate wears Phase Eight and has customised her mint green Jimmy Choos with the happiest of props – the humble pompom. For those of you thinking about avoiding flowers on your big day, for cost or allergy reasons, this is a gorgeous example of how to add colour and vibrancy in other ways. Namely balloons. Lots and lots of balloons. Images come from the lovely Joanna Bongard, who you’ll find on our recommended supplier directory, The List.

Wedding Aisle – Beautiful And Unique Ways To Decorate It

One of the many reasons I picked The List members Iscoyd Park as our wedding venue back for our October wedding was the amazing space they called their ceremony room. With floor to ceiling windows and swooping arches and glistening chandeliers, I knew that very little was needed to make this space truly sensational on my wedding day.  That said, it hasn’t stopped me from creating my own Pinterest collection devoted to lots of wedding aisle decor inspiration nor drooling over all the gorgeous images on the Rock My Wedding boards either. I also know that had I married somewhere else with a ceremony room that had less impact then I would have gone all out on the wedding aisle style side of things. So today’s post is dedicated to exactly that… How to make your wedding aisle the perfect backdrop against which to say your big day vows.

Let’s get started!

Kirsty & Vern

Apologies in advance if you have flower envy whilst viewing this Deswell Court rustic barn wedding, as they are utterly immense.

Kirsty wears a stunning flower crown and holds the most beautiful bouquet. I LOVE, love, love the pictures captured by Phillippa James Photography of her in her elegant Elizabeth Stuart bridal gown with those colour popping blooms. Then there’s her radiant smile which is so infectious and will have you beaming through these inspirational pictures. They may also have you getting a huge lump in your throat when you see the image of Groom Vern waiting at the altar for his bride to enter. Talk about off the chart adorable.

Say hello to the green eyed monster for me when you eventually clock the bridesmaids in their gold sequin Sorella Vita gowns. He’s been rearing his ugly head the whole time I’ve been putting this together for you lovely lot. I’m mean, come on, how fabulous are those frocks? And how beautiful does everybody look?

With glamour, sparkles, lots of romance, it’s hard not to LOVE this wedding. Did I mention the beautiful blooms…? Enjoy!

Eleanor & Rob

Ribbon decor always sets my heart a flutter, and the fabulous altar backdrop at this outdoor woodland ceremony looks utterly immense. As does all the other DIY decor adorning the rustic barn reception, which the Bride did herself I might add.

I have a feeling Shutter Go Click Photography’s job was made very easy with the picturesque surroundings of Camp Katur. Each image looking so enchanting and pretty. Telling the story of Eleanor and Rob’s romantic and fun filled wedding day perfectly.

Laura & Will

Laura & Will’s intimate French chateau wedding has stolen my heart for many, many reasons. First off, the couple had to overcome their original venue cancelling their booking and rearrange the wedding at a totally different place (although given how stunning Domaine de Ribaute is – we think this was entirely fortuitous – if a little stressful). Then, their celebrant didn’t turn up on their wedding day, meaning that one of their friends had to step up and read the entire ceremony from an iPad (again, this turned out for the better, their ceremony looks truly intimate and heartfelt).

Secondly it looks beautiful – elegant but rustic decor, simple branding throughout and the most gorgeous aisle lined with petals. For me, it’s exactly what a destination wedding should look like – the venue, location, and that incredible light do all the talking.

And thirdly – the photography is just dreamy. I think everyone getting married in France should book Susie Lawrence as their photographer. It’s raw, it’s candid, it’s honest and it’s beautiful. If I were Laura & Will, I’d have ALL of the images printed and framed, adorning the walls of my house and I’d stare at them all day long.

It’s a gorgeous wedding lovely ones and it’s such a pleasure to share it with you all this morning…
