Today’s enchanting wedding is from the lovely Paula and Adam, and features two of my absolute favourite wedding delights; festoon lighting and a dessert table, be still my beating heart!
The whole day was conducted under clear Georgia skies, in the grounds of Ashford Manor where Adam was working when he first met Paula. There is just so much gorgeous greenery, not only from the elegant trees framing the ceremony, but also reflected in the bridesmaids all-green bouquets and the amazing decorations that extend the length of the banquet tables. The wooden backdrop for the ceremony and board for the table plan incorporate the surroundings beautifully, with golden accents adding a subtle shimmer to complete the scheme.
Then there’s Paula and how radiant does she look! Her engagement ring is a real show-stopper (watch out for the close ups – wowser!) and her light, ethereal gown is complemented perfectly by the bridesmaids’ mismatched mink dresses. The girls’ burgundy nails perfectly pick out the deep wine colours in Paula’s bouquet as does Adam’s floral tie with gold clip to match Paula’s delicate belt. I know you’ll just love Sowing Clover‘s photography, particularly those first-look shots (hankies at the ready!)
Hello lovely WWW readers! Time is continuing to fly by for us, and we now have a mere twelve weeks to go until our big day! We are busy as always and our to-do list seems to be getting bigger by the day. Eek!
Despite the ever growing to-do list, we have ticked a few biggies off these past few weeks. Back in the middle of June we had our planning meeting with our venue, which was really exciting! The director of events, Andy was great at advising us on our menu choices and helping us select the right wines to compliment our menu. We had a fab time discussing the timings for the day and sharing our vision for the wedding with the team at Rockbeare Manor. It was great to have the opportunity to ask the questions I’d had in mind for a while, and I feel really relaxed about the day running smoothly as I totally trust the event team at our venue.
Good morning and happy Friday WWWers. I hope you have a lovely weekend planned? Before you head out of the office to enjoy the sunshine (hopefully) let me share with you this super pretty Spring wedding day.
Jade and Chris were hitched on the 15th April 2017 at Priory Cottages in North Yorkshire. They chose the venue thanks to it’s ample accommodation, barn and the marquee, which gave them a wonderfully blank canvas to really make their mark. With a chic grey and lilac colour palette they went all out with soft pastel décor, the results really were stunning. Hanging lanterns in the marquee, blended with fairy lights and wooden and hessian touches galore… Featuring a wooden sign post, personalised wooden coasters and a ladder seating plan to name a few.
One of my very fave elements from their day though has to be the cake table. It is nothing short of a masterpiece. A ruffled grey cake takes centre stage surrounded by intricately decorated cupcakes and cake pops. Oh my!
The couple and their wedding party really looked the part too. The boys were suited and booted in check grey tweed suits and bow ties, the maids wore flowing dresses and Jade fell for a lacey low back number, which fitted like a glove. Let’s not forget those sparkly Jimmy Choos too! Oh YES.
Becky and Dan’s experience of planning their wedding was fun and stress-free, and I think this really shows through. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t just loads of gorgeous details to feast your eyes on, these nuptials have style in spades! The pair wed at The Gardens, Yalding on the 5th April 2017 and you really get such a sense of the outdoors being brought in, in both the ceremony and the reception tipi. They struck a perfect balance between elegance and a rather wild feel and the result is pure beauty.
Becky’s stunning Justin Alexander dress suits the elegant simplicity of the day brilliantly and I just love the delicate flowers she wore in her hair along with a veil. Blousy pink and white flowers in her bouquet with trailing ribbon finish the look perfectly. The beautiful floral theme continues through the whole wedding and just the right amount of greenery sets everything off. Of course Dan looked similarly elegant in his M&S suit.
Enjoy, and don’t miss the delicious wedding cake alternative… yum!
I love how this couple started their engagement. Louis proposed to Steph by booking a viewing of the venue that Steph had always dreamed of as their own wedding venue. How lovely is that?
They then went on and booked Irnham Hall to host their day and Steph and Louis were married on the 20th August 2016. They envisioned an elegant country garden wedding complete with afternoon tea, games on the lawn and live music. It really was idyllic set in the walled gardens, with the sun beating down, children playing and guests drinking Prosecco and Pimms. Inside the hall the pair opted for a pink and white scheme, with hanging paper lanterns, long tables dotted with blooms in jars and tea pot table names. There was a superb naked cake tower, which was gluten free too, covered in fruits and placed upon a log stand.
Now let’s talk outfits seeing as they are totally lovely. The boys were lucky to be kitted out in WWW faves, Swagger and Swoon blush ties, which complimented the bridesmaids dresses perfectly. Meanwhile Steph chose a beaded Justin Alexander dress and sparkly bow heels by Kate Spade. Then there was her bouquet, which by the way was a total triumph. It was filled with Proteas, succulents, Roses, Astilbe and foliage. So very pretty.
