Wedding Bells (East) - - DETAILS REAL WEDDINGS -

FROM VANESSA: Our wed­ding look was vin­tage English gar­den with a boho vibe. I wanted ev­ery­thing to feel fresh, beau­ti­ful and ef­fort­less—noth­ing that seemed too forced or posed. I was ner­vous about the ac­tual cer­e­mony. I was so grate­ful to see ev­ery­one I love in one place. Rob walked down the aisle with his mom to “Juicy” by No­to­ri­ous B.I.G. (yes, you read that cor­rectly!); I went more tra­di­tional and walked down the aisle with my dad to “Ho Hey” by the Lu­m­i­neers. Tak­ing pho­tos with Rob be­fore the cer­e­mony at my par­ents’ house was very spe­cial; the lo­ca­tion means so much to me. It was also nice to get some of the por­traits done early so we could en­joy the cock­tail re­cep­tion. When it came to de­tails, I was def­i­nitely ob­sessed with my flow­ers. I es­pe­cially loved the mix of pretty, soft colours with a few more in­tense hues, which my florist cre­ated in­stead of hav­ing one strict colour pal­ette. Our cake was an English layer “naked” cake dec­o­rated with fresh fruit and flow­ers, and it tasted ev­ery bit as good as it looked. As a fash­ion editor, I had a pretty spe­cific dress in mind. I loved how my be­spoke gown came to­gether, and it was a dream to wear. It was light and com­fort­able, and I was par­tic­u­larly in love with the flut­ter sleeves, which went down in the back to cre­ate an al­most cape-like ef­fect. I also used a piece of my mum’s wed­ding-day head­piece in place of a bar­rette on my veil. It was the per­fect way to in­clude a bit of the past.
