FROM SHIRLEY: We loved our pa­per­crane-themed cer­e­mony. Pa­per cranes sym­bol­ize good luck and long-last­ing love, so we thought the theme was ro­man­tic and el­e­gant. With the cranes hang­ing from the beau­ti­ful tree arch, the venue felt like a lovely en­chanted gar­den. En­ter­ing the cer­e­mony by white horse car­riage felt like a fairy tale come true. We complemented our co­ral colour scheme with shades of blush, gold and ivory. The “Free Spirit” rose was the main flower we used in our decor, and its co­ral colour worked per­fectly. We also thought the flower was a good rep­re­sen­ta­tion of my per­son­al­ity. I re­ally felt like a free-spir­ited bride wear­ing a beau­ti­ful dress while I was walk­ing down the aisle to­ward my Mr. Right. The dessert ta­ble was one of our favourite de­tails. We loved the idea that guests could min­gle and en­joy some sweets af­ter the cer­e­mony. Since the wed­ding was so in­ti­mate, this was im­por­tant. The ta­ble also cre­ated a nice back­drop for pho­tos. Af­ter six years of be­ing to­gether, mar­ry­ing Arthur felt so un­real. We talked all the time about promis­ing our lives to each other, but ac­tu­ally look­ing into one an­other’s eyes and ex­chang­ing vows is a mo­ment I’ll never for­get.

THE DESSERT TA­BLE WAS ONE OF OUR FAVOURITE DE­TAILS.
