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!
Completely unique wedding stationery is becoming harder and harder to come by, and so we believe it is our duty to celebrate when we do find something, and share! Fig + Fern Studio create the most enchanting illustrations, and use all kinds of wonderful techniques to create completely unique paper goods. We think you’re going to fall head over heels, because story telling is confined to wedding photography you know, your wedding narrative begins the day the envelope lands on a doormat.
The result when a couple in love capture couples in love is always something special. Today we’re welcoming the wonderful Rachel and Christopher of September Pictures to The Love Lust List, and let me tell you, they are all kinds of Rock My Wedding cool. They both think each other is the better photographer, but they’ve actually both got it wrong… awkward. Thankfully, we’re here to tell you that they BOTH capture magic. Every shot is framed to perfection, they’ll get that all important mantlepiece shot which is going to end up in the hands of your great aunties as well as capturing that sneaky snog you thought no one saw AND they’re totally lovely to boot. I’ve already shotgunned them both as my future BFFs, sorry about that.
There’s something really special about creating your unique wedding day look with accessories and jewellery. The icing on the cake as it were. Reflecting your personality and bridal style might mean one bold, statement piece, or smaller delicate pieces to compliment your beautiful gown, but either way, the handcrafted luxury jewellery from Laura Rhodes is almost certainly going to fit the bill. If you’re not content with an item in the collection, Laura’s star in the crown (see what I did there), is her bespoke service to work with you to create something truly unique. Here comes the pretty…
You may have come here looking for a photographer, but you’re probably going to leave with a new friend. Carrie Lavers is not just a brilliant photographer, effortlessly capturing wonderful moments from your big day, but she’s a joy to be around. We say it an awful lot here at Rock My Wedding, but your dream team of suppliers will be people you don’t know, but trust completely to deliver your vision, and Carrie can be entrusted completely.
We love The Lovely Drawer. It is as simple as that. With collections and bespoke options both available, and Teri’s vast array of skills spanning watercolour illustrations and hand lettering, your wedding stationery design is in marvellous and very creative hands! Teri describes wedding stationery in the most perfect way; “putting together a cohesive set of paper ware to bring a couple’s vision to life”. See what we mean? Absolute perfection.
I’m just going to throw it straight out there. If I was getting married again (same fella, don’t fret pet), Middleton Lodge would be the one. A true gem in the Yorkshire countryside, which just keeps getting better and better – I mean there are plans for a spa… hello! Middleton Lodge has evolved into the ultimate venue with enough options to accommodate your wedding day visualisations effortlessly, and enough style to give you all the heart eyes. For the foodie’s amongst us, the Kitchen Garden is the thing of dreams, and if your guests love a party then the Old Forge Barn is where it’s at. Excited? You should be.
There’s no time like a wedding for indulgence, luxury and pampering. Set within 163 acres of lush parkland with the spectacular River Maine flowing through the estate, Galgorm Resort has a truly unique setting, which when combined with the award winning spa and their approach to weddings and the magic behind them, makes Galgorm tick an awful lot of boxes, and pretty boxes at that. I’m fairly sure that there isn’t a bride reading this who wouldn’t love the serenity of the spa; I’m thinking the day before the wedding, you and your bridesmaids, something sparkly and all the relaxing. Am I wrong?…
