It’s been full on this week, with the finishing touches being made to our home renovation project (you may have seen snippets on Instagram stories), Rachel headed to the Debeers Christmas event (ohh the sparkle) and what feels like 101 things to check off our to do list. Talking of events though, Rachel will be popping along to some amazing soirées so do keep your eyes peeled on our Instagram stories for all the happenings.
We have a jammed packed weekend ahead, with parties galore. And finishing off our bedroom/bathrooms so we can hopefully move back in. I can’t wait to unpack and sort out before we embark on the next project… gulp. I am also off to see my therapist for the first time in years, I really hope this marks a positive upward change in my mental wellbeing, as it has been a little out of whack recently.
I’m not sure if I have mentioned before or not, but my VERY fave wedding trend this year has to be the flower arch. As a total flower addict they just satisfy and add to my love of the bloom. So of course when I clapped eyes on WWW readers Jessica and Tamsin’s wedding I was smitten. These two have buckets of style, so much love and you’re going to adore their fun loving happy wedding day.
They chose to tie the knot on the 8th July 2017 at Tamsin’s family home in South Wales. The couple live in Australia and so much of the planning happened from the other side of the world. No mean feat by any means but they pulled it all off to perfection with the help of their family based in the UK. The garden was a real treat for guests, which was abundant with lush green trees and space for majestic tipis. So the flower arch they decided would take centre stage to their décor. The florals all looked so wonderful in pink, red and purple hues for a decadent and luxe colour palette.
Then there were the dresses! Jessica chose bridal separates by Theia, with a sequinned long sleeved crop top and tulle skirt. Tamsin’s gown was by Daughters of Simone and featured delicate lace with a low back. How beautiful did they both look? Breathtaking.
Oh I do so love a wedding held at one of the lucky couple’s parents’ houses and we’re in for a treat today, with WWW readers Matthew and Fiona’s big day held on the 27th May 2017. They chose to do the legal bit ahead of the main event with just family, leaving them free to plan everything just as they wanted, including a stunning outdoor ceremony. I just love the flexibility that a wedding at home allows our lovely couples, and this pair really took advantage by making lots of the décor themselves and of course using the help of their generous family and friends.
Matthew and Fiona also made sure to use local suppliers and seasonal products where possible. Aren’t the flowers including Fiona’s favourite peonies simply stunning? There are so many brilliant homemade details to enjoy here but I think one of my favourites has to be the personalised bar, and what a touching tribute to name the beers after grandparents who couldn’t be there.
Everyone happens to be turned out rather nicely too. Fiona kept her Maggie Sottero dress a secret from everyone except her Mum and don’t you just adore the gorgeous hair vine she chose to go with it? Matthew was a French Connection groom with a special Scottish touch, which was also carried through to the darling page boys. It goes without saying that the bridesmaids looked beautiful in their ASOS numbers.
This ethereal and plain heavenly day just radiates love and happiness through these mesmerising images by Darek Novak Photography. There isn’t much not to love about this couple and their homely and intimate country house wedding.
Jane and Ian were married on the 22nd May 2017 at Rathmullan House in Ireland. The venue is situated by Lough Swilly with outstanding views and scenery, which their photographer really made the most of for their dreamy portraits. The house was also perfect in atmosphere for their comfortable and relaxed wedding. They decorated and styled their celebrations sympathetically and focused on a muted colour palette, which included delicate fluffy blooms, wooden details and personal DIY touches.
Music was at the heart of their day, with a musician playing and singing during the ceremony to a compilation of meaningful songs and their party had a live band come evening. One of my very favourite things about their day though, just has to be, that DRESS. Jane chose the Divine Atelier Aimee gown, which suited her bohemian style perfectly. The lace fabric is just exquisite and she looked stunning. Her maids certainly upped the style stakes in their blue pleated satin skirts while Ian wore a dark navy suit with stylish accessories. Perfection.
