| Kerry & Chris
Keeping with the Winter theme today we thought we’d take you up North for a rustic Scottish wedding complete with Christmas carols and an impromptu sing a long by all the little children to Disney’s Frozen ‘Let It Go’. I must confess I wouldn’t have been able to resist joining in too!
Everybody was then transported by vintage bus to a fabulously decorated hall full to bursting with DIY decor, vintage trinkets and homemade treats all lovingly put together by family and friends the day before. All of these little details added to the overall creative, fun vibe of the wedding day.
I love Audrey Hepburn and now I love Kerry! Both are absolute style icons in my eyes. Kerry’s bespoke vintage inspired Audrey wedding dress and Vivienne Westwood Melissa shoes. Are. Just. Gorgeous! The Bridesmaids look very chic too in their 50s inspired navy dresses and faux fur stoles and how can I forget the Groom paying homage to Scottish tradition and rocking his tartan kilt!
Gillian & Brian
There is some seriously sexy atmospheric goodness going on in this morning’s wedding. So gorgeously dreamy that even Cathy and Heathcliff would be a tad jealous of this smouldering pair captured by Christopher Currie Photography.
Gillian and Brian married at the end of last year, on New Year’s Eve Eve, under a canopy of twinkling lights at the rustic heaven that is Kinkell Byre. There are tweed suits (always guaranteed to make me go weak at the knees), quirky centrepieces, a smattering of pink, pastel rose bouquets and a whole heap of DIY goodness. Please do take the time to peek at the gallery – there are so many ideas to steal for your own big days.
And the matching ‘I love him’ and ‘I love her’ tattoos are the sweetest!
Sarah & Richard
As soon as I opened Sarah & Richard’s submission adorned with the bunting graphics used at their wedding I thought this is going to be EPIC and full of fabulous details and styling and I most certainly was not disappointed.
I love the rustic elements and deep pink florals. Those chair back vines in particular are just amazing! and then there are the disco balls, bunting, light up letters, vintage china tea cups and more, SO much more! The attention to detail is overwhelming and Sarah has been the most helpful bride & listed all her suppliers for you.
Both are dressed in to to-die-for outfits by Suzanne Neville and Saint Crispin Bespoke Tailoring and completed there looks perfectly with plush velvet bow ties, dazzling wedding bands and killer shoes!
But you have to stay tuned to view the perfectly captured images by Claire Penn Photography of the YMCA Best Mans speech and the oh so romantic video by Simon Clarke Films.
| Ruth & George
Doesn’t Ruth look elegant? She had her heart set on being a Jenny Packham Bride from the start and so she worked HARD to save up for her dress. And it was most definitely worth it. ‘Esme’ is such a stunning dress with all of that embellishment and it fits Ruth like a glove. I’m also loving her pretty plaited up-do and THAT sparkly head piece (another Jenny Packham beauty).
It’s lovely to see a navy and silver colour scheme, I feel like bronze and coppers have dominated of late on the metallic front – just wait until you see the glittery cake made by Ruth, and I’m sure you’ll agree.
And not only did Bride Ruth make the cake, but she made most of the decor too. Weddings are such a great way to unleash your creativity, and Ruth literally has it in abundance!
We don’t often feature suits on RMW, but when we do – we like to show you the best options out there. Over the years, wedding style in general has become more and more adventurous, so it follows that suits would become more style and trend led too. Often the Grooms in the gorgeous real weddings we feature put as much time, effort and money into finding their outfits as the Brides do!
If you’re looking for a well established British company to provide smart attire for your big day – then look no further. Jack Bunneys have been making and hiring suits since 1958 and are still going strong today.
And it’s because they do things differently. Using finer materials, different colours, slimmer fits. They tried losing the fancy waistcoats, then reinventing the fancy waistcoats. They tried introducing different styles. They invented new services and new ways of looking at the industry. In short, and according to Marc, they did what they ‘wanted and to hell with what the industry told us we should be doing.’ Now THAT sounds like our kind of thinking…
