The story behind Nikki Stark’s ethical bespoke jewellery is nothing short of special, and when picking suppliers for your wedding day beautiful stories always feel much more romantic, don’t they? In 2019 not only are couples seeking out more and more ethical options for their big day, but the notion of going bespoke is going absolutely nowhere. If you can have something no one else has, then why wouldn’t you?! We adore the beautiful ethical bespoke pieces that Nikki lovingly handcrafts and we’re certain you will too, which is why we’re so proud to say she has joined our handpicked and verified supplier directory, The List.
There’s a good reason that RMW readers are the best, in fact, there are quite a few good reasons, but one of them is they love a good party. You know the kind I mean, heaving dancefloor, amazing live music or epic playlist, your great granny being spun around by the best man… all the fun times. One of our passions is connecting you with the best suppliers to help you pull off that party of a lifetime for your wedding, and if you’re after some authentic vintage swing which makes you feel like you’ve fallen down a roaring 20s rabbit hole then it is your lucky day. Today we’re introducing you to Bootleg Boogie Band who are the perfect live entertainment act to transport you and your guests to the decadence and razzmatazz of the Jazz Age. You’d better grab a cocktail…
If you’re a long time reader of Rock My Wedding you’ll already know that we encourage every single couple planning their day to stay true to themselves and have the day that they really want. Not the day that your mum wants (controversial!), or the day a glossy magazine is telling you to have because… “trendy”. We want you to do all the things that will make your hearts sing and most importantly, be looked back on knowing it truly was YOUR day, your way. We’re also advocates of seeking out the very best suppliers to help you achieve this dream, and for some of you that will be a bespoke planning and styling support service. Today we’re introducing you to one of our epic, handpicked Planning & Styling suppliers, Helaina Storey, who will literally take your vision and ideas and help bring them to a not only beautiful crescendo of loveliness, but in a seamless yet fun way too. Helaina Storey Wedding Design’s ethos is so perfectly aligned with that of RMW we just know you’ll achieve wonderful things together.

There is no denying it, no matter how much you stick to your guns, stay true to yourself and plan the wedding of your dreams, there is always an element of stress. It is just part and parcel of wedding planning, but the perfect antedote to this is the fact you’re about to throw one hell of a party (and marry your perfect partner, obvs). And you know what makes a party go off? An incredible wedding DJ. Luckily we’re pretty well equipped at helping you find the perfect wedding entertainment; our handpicked wedding supplier directory The List has a plethora of live music acts which will blow you and your guests socks off.

Thank us later.
Wedding gifts can be tricky these days, with us all living together in our pre-marital bubble, there’s no need for the canteen of cutlery, or dinner service (though Le Creuset should definitely still be on your wishlist). So, we are here to help by nudging your guests in the direction of The List member Hartnack & Company. These beautiful, individually handcrafted and bespoke Wedding Albums, Keepsake Boxes and Wedding Guest Books of heirloom quality will fill you with joy as you’re looking back on your day in years to come.
We are sure you will agree that these Keepsake & Memory Boxes make the perfect gift to give and receive, so take a peek and drop those subtle hints to any guests looking to deviate from the gift list, or indeed ask for one out right. Don’t ask, don’t get!
If you’re looking for the perfect personalised wedding gifts you’re going to need to stop by our approved supplier My Icon Story. These design-led, storytelling prints are a fantastic present with the sentiment you can’t find off the shelf.

We support individuality from our brides, grooms, bridesmaids, readers and suppliers from our handpicked supplier directory, The List, so we are absolutely delighted to introduce you to such a unique brand.
The initial search for your wedding photographer often turns up lots of different styles of shooting and editing, some of which you may have encountered before, and some you’re not so familiar with. Either way, you will often end up radiating strongly towards one particular style, and falling hook line and sinker. I predict that is going to happen for a lot of you today when I introduce you to Carla Bonnet. A destination photographer who captures weddings and elopements in the most magical and timeless way, there’s a lot to love about Carla’s work. Just scroll down and imagine those epic captures hung on your walls for years to come. I know! Thank me later.
The wonderful reviews that Independent Picture’s clients have written about them probably say all that is needed for this little introduction. Do you know what you want from a photographer, aside from the epic photos? Probably some of these feelings, we would guess… “You made us feel like the most important people in the world“, “completely unobtrusive“, “fun to be around“. Independent Pictures are right at home amongst our host of incredible destination wedding creatives, so if you’re planning a wedding in Europe, or further afield, you may want to take a peek!
