Fairy tale weddings don’t come much more lovely than this one – St Donat’s Castle in Wales is literally a dream location and Annie & Jason make a truly gorgeous couple. The story of how they booked their photographer, Steve Gerrard is pure fate, definitely one you need to read for yourselves! Steve was clearly meant to photograph this wedding and we’re absolutely thrilled that he sent it our way. With the pretty pink and gold colour scheme, Annie in a stunning Stephanie Allin gown and a proper raise-the-roof party to finish off the day – this wedding has Rock My Wedding and ‘Your Day Your Way’ written all over it…
Botanical weddings are seriously of-the-moment and I have to admit, I think this may well be the prettiest one I’ve ever seen…
The details are elegant and beautiful and the foliage is just in complete abundance! Joanna is a loyal RMW reader and we love that she took inspiration and found suppliers for her own wedding from lots of others featured on these pages. In fact, Joanna mentions the wedding of one of her friends, who was also featured on RMW, it’s a wedding I’d forgotten all about, but OMG it’s stunning – make sure you check it out after enjoying this feature. (You’ll find the link in Joanna’s text). How stylish must the girls friendship group be?! Seriously?
Images come from the lovely Nick Murray. Oh and look out for the epic cake, made by another one of the girls insanely talented friends! Enjoy!
I have a LOT of love for this wedding. So much so that when I saw gorgeous Bride Camilla on The Mews Bridal’s blog, I just knew we needed to feature her big day on Rock My Wedding. For starters, Camilla is wearing a combination of two of my favourite designers, Stephanie Allin (best of British, feminine and lacy) and Laure de Sagazan (French bohemian loveliness). She’s also sporting a totally unique antique wax crown by Rosie Weisencrantz, which is just so effortlessly stylish. Then there’s the Bridal party in white – my favourite look for Bridesmaids. And the whimsical bouquet by The Blue Carrot – simply stunning.
And finally, just when I thought I couldn’t love it anymore, the whole wedding is by the ocean in Cornwall, my favourite place in world!
The images are beautifully atmospheric – Andy at Harrera Images has such a distinctive style that somehow both brims with fresh creativity and yet produces a strong sense of nostalgia. The wedding itself, and the capture of the day, has stolen my heart and I hope you enjoy it too.
The Kingscote Barn just looks like such an idyllic place to get married – beautiful rolling countryside, big blue skies with fluffy clouds, with only the sheep and your wedding guests for company. We LOVE venues like this!!
We also love Marshal Gray’s dreamy photography style, with nothing forced or staged, everything just unfolding as it happens. Emily & Simon look so happy and like they’ve had the best day ever. And Emily’s Stephanie Allin gown, with a detachable lace top is just swoon worthy!
We’re in bouquet heaven. Seriously. We’ve be transported from this miserable winters day to a place of hazy sunshine, with beautiful gowns and stunning flowers and we really don’t want to leave, thank you very much!
The styling in this shoot from Bo Boutique & Ashlee Taylor is just gorgeous, the colours and textures are soft and girly without being overbearingly pink and the oversized flower heads are just so striking. We’re also loving the dewy make up looks – the models both look flawless.
The venue for this shoot is the magical Larmer Tree Gardens in Dorset, where that rather fabulous fresco can be found.
When we receive outdoor weddings to feature, I always have my fingers crossed that the weather held for the lovely couple…so you can imagine how happy I was that this outdoor wedding in Scotland was filled with sunshine for Lauren & Glen.
How they’ve styled the aisle is particularly pretty – colourful posies on white seats and a stunning floral arch are perfect for a Summer wedding.
Now this folks, this is how you do a marquee-in-the-garden wedding. Laura and Will have, in my humble opinion, only gone and nailed the most perfect laidback garden wedding. There are lots of signs for cocktails (at last someone who loves the beverage as much as I do!), supersized balloons waving gaily from wooden fences, some epic ‘dance floor rules’ (lunges anyone?!), happy maids clutching white bouquets and one of the prettiest table plans I ever did see.
But perhaps my favourite part of the wedding, apart from the Choos and of course the loving is the table decor and marquee styling. It’s fresh, it’s green and by heck I’ve never seen anything like it before. There are ditsy, floral, mossy green napkins, cratefuls of blooms, oodles of sweet peas, blowsy hydrangeas and actual trees dispersed along the tables. It looks so modern yet so pretty at the same time and I adore it.
Laura and Will…I take my hat off to you.
Look at that sky! You know when you go on holiday for a while and then you come home and are reminded just how beautiful the UK is. Well these images by Photography34 have had that effect on me… If ever there was a perfect day for an outdoor celebration then this is it. Abby and Andy must have been over the moon.
With a Stephanie Allin dress, stunning natural wood marquee and exquisite DIY florals there is something here for everyone. Did I mention the brass band?…
No, these are not the lyrics from a late 1960s Beatles record… This is the wedding of Laura and Max. Sun, canapés and free roaming sheep with wild flowers and a tipi too. This wedding has more ‘free love’ than a Californian hippy in a campervan. In a good way, obviously.
