In An English Country Garden
Fran and Duncan have got the balance of rustic AND glamorous just right. The combination of gorgeous wild flowers, candelabras and pastel tones for the wedding party alongside the simple interior of the barn and the beautiful Hampshire country side is perfect.
It’s romantic and whimsical but also sleek and stylish. And looks effortlessly so at that.
I’m so pleased that it was important to Fran to have a dress that was sexy and unusual – and her gown is definitely both. It fits her like a glove and she shines out from every single photo.
When it comes to first dances, Fran and Duncan have hit that nail on the head too. I’ve always thought I’d be too shy to have a choreographed first dance, but the images of this lovely pair have made me re-evaluate my opinion – Duncan and Fran look so elegant and lost in the moment, despite all of the watching eyes.
All of this fabulousness was captured forever by Guy Collier.
The Middle Of Nowhere Feel
Fran The Bride: We got married at Holy Cross Church in Binsted, Hampshire, before moving on to the Barn at Bury Court in nearby Bentley for the reception. When we first started looking for a venue we wanted a barn that would give us a blank canvas in terms of decoration but also had great food and a “middle of nowhere” feel.
Bury Court was the first place we looked at and we knew immediately this was “our place”. We looked at two more venues just to make sure, but we’d already lost our hearts to this beautiful location. We loved the warm feel of the barn and its beautiful gardens, plus it was very near to where Duncan’s mum lived. While I am from Germany, we were sure the wedding should be in the UK – and having it near Duncan’s Mums gave us the feeling we had a connection with the area. View more ….
Australian Wedding Film With A Gorgeous 1950s Bride
So put the kettle on, put your feet up and get utterly lost in this beautiful wedding film by Australia based creatives The Story Of Us who describe their films as being ‘designed to look and feel like memories’. (And boy do they deliver!)
There is so much to love about Kate and Graeme’s vintage homespun affair in Kangaroo Valley, Australia. I’m particularly obsessed with the tartan touches in homage to the groom’s homeland, Scotland.
While Kate is one of the most stunning and stylish brides I’ve ever seen.

Okay onto the film – it’s filled to the brim with love, laughter, a rad soundtrack and guests tearing it up on the dancefloor! View more ….
Fire In My Heart
James and Debbie married at the stonkingly gorgeous Treasurer’s House in York earlier this year. And when I say gorgeous I’m talking history infused flagstone floors, gothic chandeliers and panelled doors set off by majestic oil paintings.
I’m also a little bit in love with Debbie and James’ bespoke stationery and Debbie’s dress which is ethereal glamour at its very best.
And that’s not the only reason that Team RMW are a little bit excited (read wetting their pants in glee) about this morning’s wedding. Because beautiful bride Debbie is the first EVER bride to appear on these pages wearing something from the Rock My Boutique collection. And cor blimey does she show it off to perfection.
