Today’s gorgeous pair Jessica & Rhys were married at Chelsea Old Town Hall in September, describing their wedding as “a magical day surrounded by our favourite people in the world.” They both love classic styling, but most importantly wanted a relaxed affair with no stress about specific styling themes – the most important thing was to enjoy the moment with their loved ones.
1. Wear Your Everyday Gold Jewellery
Instead of statement sparkly jewels, we’re seeing brides choosing pretty layering pieces to style their big day outfit. The general trend is that brides are wanting to be comfortable and more relaxed on their wedding day and this is a great way to choose jewellery that you can actually wear again long after the day itself. The style is more modern and minimal with just a hint of embellishment such as a decorative pendant. Opt for gold, it’s more luxe and looks great with ivory.
I stumbled across Belle & Bunty‘s instagram the other day: a haven for sassy brides looking to avoid the ‘delicate flower’ bridal style and embrace something more relaxed and fashion-aware: dare I say ballsy?
Put it this way: There’s absolutely no reason why you can’t find a wedding outfit that feels like YOU. No need to change your style because the wedding industry wants you in a corseted bodice / trailing gown / fitted white lace wotsit. And if you’re also looking for an eco-aware brand with genuine ethics and a commitment to sustainability, girl you are in the right place! Belle & Bunty’s gorgeous dresses can even be made in vegan fabrics… which ticks every little box for me.
I love Kate and Andrew’s best thing about being married (from my questionnaire at the end of the blog) – they say it’s “having each other’s families“! How lovely is that?!! Their wedding report is as wonderful as the images of their day, the spectacular location of King’s College London, their creative choice of wedding readings… this is all a very special wedding blog and one I’m proud to feature!
