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!
