A classic day followed by an epic party at this Kirtlington Park wedding. The couple thought about every little detail, wanting everything to reflect them as individuals and as a couple, so little things were important! The day began with a classic, romantic ceremony in the stunning stately home, where the bride wore a Liz Martinez wedding dress and the groom looked handsome in a tuxedo. This was followed by an amazing party where the bride had an outfit change and put on her second dress of the day, a glamorous Galia Lahav dress that she got from Brides Do Good, and the groom played the opening set on the decks. The atmosphere was electric and the room was definitely filled with love and laughter!
As The Beatles famously said, “We get by with a little help from our friends” and this is never truer than at a wedding. Hannah, our bride today, was in the very fortunate position of having a mum who runs the GORGEOUS Rustic Rentals but she also says that their wedding wouldn’t have been a success were not for the extraordinary generosity and talent of their family and friends. Isn’t that just lovely?! From the incredible flower hoop to the prettiest maids in cornflour blue, there are so many elements to love about this wedding.
Oh, and remember, if you’re on the lookout for your team of epic wedding pros, make sure you take a look at our handpicked supplier directory, The List.
We are utterly obsessed with this magical matrimony, which truly is romance made real. The Riding School at Calke Abbey, a National Trust property in Derbyshire, is a stunning no corkage wedding venue with high ceilings and exposed brickwork, which Megan & Kurt style superbly with soft drapery, fairylights, pretty florals and the pièce de résistance: a moon gate altar. Megan’s must have – ghost chairs – have set our hearts aflutter here at RMW (we totally get why they were top of her wishlist), and just when we thought this wedding couldn’t get any better we spy leather jackets, a doughnut wall and a glitter bar. Do not miss groom Kurt with a sparkly blue beard!
There are some weddings that simply make your heart soar, and this London summer wedding – filled with beautiful family moments and a fantastic floral arch – is one such celebration. I won’t give anything away, as bride and groom Chloe & Ben tell the story best in their own words, but suffice to say you might want your hankies out for this one. Let’s just say, you’re never too old to find love!
Ooh, la la! There’s nothing more romantic than a French destination wedding; it is the country of love, after all. Aby and Joe’s gorgeous day in Normandy is a dreamy mix of local traditions and personal touches, with homegrown flowers, fabulous French food and a DIY foliage altar. Aby looks très belle in her intricate lace and long-sleeved dress by Catherine Deane, matched by her beautiful boho hair, styled into a loose fishtail plait with gypsophila woven throughout. Oh, and keep an eye out for the croquembouche cakes studded with sparklers. Mouth. Watering.
