State­ment styling for a fairy­tale cel­e­bra­tion

Perfect Wedding Magazine - - Real-Life-Weddings -

One of the rea­sons why we wanted to get mar­ried was to throw a party for ev­ery­one that we loved who had brought us to that point. We wanted a re­laxed, rus­tic gar­den wed­ding where ev­ery­body could come to­gether and en­joy them­selves, and a venue that would let us put our own stamp on the day.

We held our cer­e­mony in the Chapel at Gressen hall Work­house and Mu­seum, then had our re­cep­tion at Back to the Gar­den – a beau­ti­ful set­ting with amaz­ing food and a great gar­den area.

We bought all our flow­ers from a whole­sale sup­plier and ar­ranged them our­selves, com­bin­ing rus­ti­clook­ing dis­plays with amaz­ing props we hired from The Lit­tle Lend­ing Com­pany. We also de­signed all the wed­ding sta­tionery and wooden signs, while my mum made our cookie favours and a friend’s mum made our lovely tiered cake.

One of the hardest things was find­ing my dress. I tried on lots of styles but none of them were quite right. Af­ter a lot of re­search, I found a de­signer in Bu­dapest who seemed to suit my style and was very unique. The mo­ment I tried my dress on, I could tell that it was the one. When you know, you know!

I asked my brides­maids to choose their own dresses, only spec­i­fy­ing that they were all shades of blue. I loved that it al­lowed them to be them­selves and feel com­fort­able on the day, and they all looked amaz­ing.

We com­bined tra­di­tions from both sides of our fam­ily (in­clud­ing bot­tles of vodka on the ta­bles!), which cre­ated a re­laxed, fun at­mos­phere. Spend­ing such an amaz­ing day with our friends and fam­ily was the per­fect way to cel­e­brate the start of our in­cred­i­ble jour­ney – the room was filled with so much love.
