There are weddings and then there are WEDDINGS and this massive party at Trinity Buoy Wharf definitely falls into the second category. From start to finish it’s clear that everyone is having a ball, Kerri’s smile doesn’t leave her face for the whole day! Exactly as it should be.
With a large number of guests and lots of logistics involved, including boat travel, a fabulous wedding coordinator was needed – Always Andri was the perfect woman for the job. The day ran without a hitch and looked utterly beautiful too. Let’s get started shall we? There’s lots to enjoy…
This morning’s wedding is very close to our hearts. Our lovely real bride Emma got married over the summer and it was such a treat to share her planning journey with you all. Emma is truly a beautiful person inside and out who has been a RMW reader since the very, very beginning. Like me, she’s wedding mad and is genuinely just all about the love, which makes her wedding even more special.
As you’d imagine, like a true RMW couple, Emma and Dean’s wedding day is full of details that are personal and special to them. Their DIY gin bar is just the best idea. Guests were asked to create a bottle of flavoured gin to bring along, these were then added to their pretty display cabinet and guests could sample them, before voting for their favourite. This needs to become a wedding thing – let’s make it happen people! Not only does it get guests involved in a bit of healthy competition, but it’s also a great way of saving a little bit of money on the bar tab too 😉
So without further ado, let’s enjoy Emma and Dean’s wedding day. It’s an absolute cracker of a day so get comfy, start scrolling and leave some love for this gorgeous pair at the bottom of the post…
“Once you’ve got some clear ideas on what you both want, make decisions, and crucially, pick very good suppliers. Good suppliers are invaluable.”
We couldn’t agree more with Bride Tara’s fabulous advice, and it’s lovely to see she included many of our our very own, The Love Lust List, and Look Book, recommended suppliers to make her gorgeous blush pink, white and gold vision at Aynhoe Park a reality.
From the show stopping blooms to the refined gold flatware, I’m sure you’ll agree everything looked absolutely stunning. Non more so than our gorgeous bride and groom in their fabulous wedding attire. Tara’s Suzanne Neville gown fits her like a glove and James couldn’t be more dapper in his DKNY black tie suit from Moss Bros.
The wonderful Lucy Davenport has done a sterling job at capturing all the elegance and love, so enjoy every delicious detail.
Suzanne Neville is the one name in British bridal design that I always associate with pure elegance – her gowns are so striking but in a truly beautiful and timeless way. There’s something instantly recognisable about a Suzanne Neville gown too, which I think is testament to her iconic style. But at RMW, we love embracing trends too and adore it when the bridal and the fashion world collide. We know that while you want to feel like a bride on your wedding day, you always want to feel like yourself! And that’s why this collection from Suzanne is my favourite yet. It’s classic Suzanne Neville, but with a stylish, contemporary twist. This collection takes Suzanne’s stunning gowns to a whole new level.
Of course there’s the classic clean tailoring, but with lots of romantic floral and sequinned embellishments, dramatic necklines and sleeves to die for. If you’re looking for a gown that will make a statement, but in a classy, feminine way, then allow me to introduce the Belle Epoque collection…
Sophie and Louis are simply adorable. Both of their facial expressions as they are getting ready are priceless – anticipation, nerves, excitement and joy – there’s nothing quite like the melting pot of emotions that is your wedding morning! Sophie looks like a Princess in her stunning Suzanne Neville gown. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, it’s always worth trying on a style of dress you hadn’t considered before. Sophie’s stylist at her boutique suggested this gown and I have to say, it’s perfect for her!
Images come from the lovely Mary & Maurizio at Quattro Studio who you’ll find on our Love Lust List. If you’re planning an Italian wedding too, then we’d certainly recommend their dreamy style.
Oh and one final mention – THAT incredible lighting! The evening festivities look simply magical – a fitting end to the day for our Princess bride.
Today is Valentine’s Day, the day of love, and you can certainly feel the love radiating from the pages of this dreamy country Cotswolds wedding.
Bride Sarah’s creative background in graphic design and Groom Simon’s background in vintage lighting helped set the tone for all the delicious decor. With Sarah designing the gorgeous floral stationery and signs and Simon taking care of all the hanging industrial and fairy lights that adorn Hyde House barn. Complimented beautifully by the blush blooms in various jars and spray painted bottles it really is a picturesque place to celebrate.
Sarah’s keen eye is also reflected in her wedding attire opting for many of our Look Book designers. If like us you can’t stop swooning over her Naomi Neoh Loretta gown or stunning Suzanne Neville belt then you should definitely take a peek and see what else they have to offer.
The whole wedding is warm, rich and decadent without feeling over-complicated and captured beautifully by White Stag Wedding Photography. Are you ready to swoon and sign?
Lauren’s blush pink ‘Ballet’ gown by Suzanne Neville is just dreamy and perfect for a pretty pastel wedding filled with metallic details. We love that Lauren started out with a purely pink theme, but the ‘allure of sparkly things’ got to her and she couldn’t help but throw in a sprinkling of gold. I mean, let’s face it, we’ve all been there 😉
I’m also loving the idea of guests putting notes into bottles for Lauren and James to open on future wedding anniversaries. They could chose between a few years away, or as far as 25 years down the line! What a great idea and how wonderful will it be for the couple to open these and reminisce over their wonderful day?
How utterly elegant does Grace look in her Suzanne Neville gown? It fits like a glove, and along with her Britten veil, she looks every inch the glamorous Bride.
As well as the great fashion and lovely styling, the incredible food from Love Lust List recommended suppliers, Pickle Shack will have you drooling – if you’ve not discovered the kind of amazing food you can have at your wedding day (rather than a bog standard three course soup, chicken and apple pie) then you MUST check out the caterers on our list. And look out for the foodie shots from this wedding too Pickle Shack just have the best presentation and if it’s good enough for restauranteur Groom James…
