Pink Wedding Flowers for a Nature-Inspired Elopement on the Rocks

Our eyes have been popping out of their sockets at all the divine inspiration we’ve been treated to this afternoon by Gluecksmoment and Julia Schick. From the pink wedding flowers to the intimate sweetheart table, whiskey station and dessert table, no stone has been left unturned to ensure this nature-inspired elopement has it all. Look out for the bride’s interchangeable shoes too, effortlessly changing from kitten heel to block heel and stiletto depending on your preference. Genius.

Emily & Danny

Apparently Britain is set for a cold snap this week, so we’re loving this Spring, boho, festival themed wedding this morning. Radiating with gorgeous sunlight and love, and filled with the prettiest pastel floral arrangements and crowns.

Be sure to stick around for the epic smoke bomb capture by Kirsty MacKenzie Photography too. Coloured flares are one of the hottest wedding trend to come out of 2018, which I’m sure we’ll see continue into 2019 as well.

Beccy & Adam

This rather beautiful, wildly colourful and completely joyous wedding is going to knock your socks off. Beccy and Adam wanted to get married in Spring, when the flowers are beginning to bloom, but instead of a typical pastel palette, they’ve opted for bold and bright shades of red, pink, purple, yellow, blue and green. The final result is so striking and so different to the normal pink and white blossomy Spring images we’re used to seeing. I love it!

The pair opted for RMW favourite venue, the beautiful Iscoyd Park, which offers as much gorgeousness on the inside as it does on the outside. It really is one of the best wedding venues in the UK and you’re about to see why…

Beautiful Bouquets For Spring Weddings

Now it may be absolutely freeeeezing here in the UK, but the arrival of Spring is imminent. And with it, hopefully some warmer weather. Which can only mean one thing – flowers. It’s such a wonderful time of year to create floral arrangements as everything is so fresh and vibrant. In our book, Your Day Your Way, written by our founder Charlotte O’Shea, we created a double page spread for each season to show you which blooms you’ll be able to use for your big day. Today we’re sharing the Spring bouquets here on RMW.

Nathalie & Mark

I’ve sung the praises of The Garden Gate Flower Company a few times before on RMW, but today I’m doing it again as Becca and Maz are just SO TALENTED. Their style is so unique and so obviously theirs too, I can pick their work a mile off now and once you’ve seen it, it’s hard to imagine flowers styled and arranged in any other way. The other thing about these ladies is that they GROW ALL OF THEIR flowers on their on farm. It’s a beautiful process which I think makes their work even more special. Although they are based in Cornwall, they love to travel far and wide for weddings so do get in touch if like me, you’re bewitched by their way with blooms.

We’ve saved this Spring wedding for today as this afternoon we’ll be bringing you a special Spring Flowers inspiration post from our Love Lust List florists (Becca and Maz included)! So sit back and enjoy todays seasonal feast for the eyes…who doesn’t love the promise of Spring?

Winter Brings Spring

Does anyone else feel like Spring has been a long time coming this year? I’m still wearing Winter boots and chunky cardigans, but this shoot has given me some hope, that actually, Spring is just around the corner, because Winter ALWAYS brings Spring. The decor and styling by Rebecca Avery Flowers & Kathryn Hopkins Photography is just perfect – I love their interpretation of Spring – no blossom and pastels – just foliage beginning to turn green, delicate eggs and subtle Apricot tones.

Super talented Kathryn not only shot the whole thing on film, but also made the dress worn by the model! I know, it’s lace overlay and blush toned skirt could easily been mistaken for a Claire Pettibone design…

And that cake created by The Love Lust List member French Made, looks like it should be served at some kind of woodland party for fairies – it’s just so delicate and pretty.

Easter DIY and Inspiration shoot

I don’t know about everyone else around here but I’m just about beside myself at the prospect of the four day weekend. I’m planning some celebrations as some of my friends visit from the South and lots of birthdays coincide, along with a well deserved break. With all this in mind, the glorious weather and plans afoot for spring time festivities, when we got an email from the very lovely Lou over at Whimsical Wonderland Weddings asking if we would like to share some of her recent DIY projects, I was bouncing around like a mad march hare!

Last week Lou celebrated her blogs 1 year birthday and instead of sitting back and counting her successes, she went all out and completely DIY’d her own little Spring inspiration shoot. Flowers, Favours, table runners, cake display, the lot.

And boy is it Pretty with a capital P.

Every single item you see here is budget beautiful and lovingly crafted by Lou’s own fair hand. Even better Lou has been kind enough to give you all instructions on how to re-create some of the elements she slaved over. Obviously this is perfect Wedding Inspiration, but you know what… I am totally planning on re-creating some of these bits and pieces for my Easter table and celebrations! (I’ll send you the pics Lou!)

I’m particularly in love with that little cake topper and her ideas for RMW – customising the egg cups 🙂

Genius!

So without further ado, I’m going to hand you over to Lou and her DIY tutorials… please make her very welcome ladies!

Hi Rock My Wedding readers!! I’m Lou from {www} and I’m so very excited to be guest posting for you today.

Cake Topper DIY Tutorial

There is a trend at the moment for simple, rustic, homemade-style cakes in the wedding industry and cake toppers are BIG news right now. It’s an easy, cute and quirky way to personalise your day.

There are so many toppers out there to choose from, but this one is very easy, you can completely personalise and adapt it to your taste and wedding theme.

What you need:

Assorted coloured paper

Two paper straws

Thread/Twine

Needle

Template

Scissors/Craft Knife

Print off your selected words in your preferred font, preferably on card.

Draw around your letters onto the paper and cut out using scissors or a sharp craft knife.

Tie one end of your twine or thread to one straw, and start threading your letters onto the thread. Be sure to choose the same height to thread and thread through twice in each letter to ensure the letter lays flat. Be careful, the paper is delicate. You can use card if you wish but it may be harder to make the holes for the thread.

Once the row of letters is in place tie the other end of the thread onto the second straw.

When you start on the next rows of lettering, make sure the thread is shorter; you want the straws to be closer at the bottom and wider at the top for full affect. Also find out the diameter of your cake to make sure it is in proportion.

Now insert the straws into your cake. {Make sure you store the topper safely until your wedding day, a box is best, as it’s very delicate.}

Don’t worry if it’s not perfect, it all adds to the ‘look’.

DIY Tin Can Centre Piece Tutorial

I thought for ages about what inexpensive way I could present my flowers in for the shoot. In the end I came up with tin cans, which given a lick of paint are given a whole new lease of life. They are the ultimate eco-friendly, budget and gorgeous centrepiece concept.

What you need:

Assorted Tin Cans

Paint {gloss}

Brush

Ribbons

Collect tin cans, different sized cans together look best.

Remove the labels and give them a good wash.

Start painting the cans in your chosen colours or patterns. Warning: I used acrylics and the cans started to rust, we ended up using some gloss paint we had.

Tie around mismatched pretty ribbons and fill them with gorgeous seasonal blooms.

DIY Egg Cup Favours Tutorial

Choosing original and fun favours that your guests will treasure is tricky, but I have the perfect solution for those Spring and Easter weddings…. Egg cups of course!

What you need:

Wooden Egg Cups

Paint {I used acrylics}

Paint Brush

Sandpaper

Twine

Felt or Fabric

Thread

Needle

Scissors

Lightly sand your egg cups, so that the paint sticks well to the cup.
Choose your colours and get painting; a contrasting colour on the inside makes it look really vibrant. You could even paint patterns such as the RMW polka dots!

For the name tags, get some felt or fabric and mark the initial lightly in pencil. Using your needle and thread, create a running stich along the initial. Cut to size. I like the little flag effect at the end, or choose another shape.

Get your twine and fold in two, thread it through the top of the tag and pull the ends through the loop.

Tie around your egg cup. For an extra cute finish why not put a flower head or some sweets in the egg cup?

I put my egg cups on mismatched fabric napkins with doilies on top of my plates to finish, for an extra touch tie some pretty ribbon around the cutlery. Layering really adds to the effect.
And voila, your guests will remember your big day each time they tuck into their boiled egg.

Top {www} Tip: Grab your egg cups cheap from eBay or craft shops.

Have fun and get crafting… your wedding day will have a personal touch, you will save money and of course it will look just divine 😉

Much love

Lou xoxo
