We’re starting the week with this really rather wonderful wedding celebration, which is filled to the brim with love and romance. It doesn’t really get better than than does it?
WWW readers Jonny and Nadia were married on Monday 21st November 2016 at the stunning Le Petit Chateau in Northumberland. They had 19 weeks to plan the day of their dreams, as Jonny’s mum had terminal cancer. Their priorities of course were to tie the knot as soon as possible to ensure that their nearest and dearest were able to be there with them. Their wedding planning was a breeze, thanks to their out of season wedding date and fuss free attitude. It also helped that they chose some superb wedding suppliers including WWW faves Prezola, who supplied their guest list.
With a whimsical theme in mind, the couple styled their wedding with sublime abundant florals, stylish engraved wooden details and divine outfits. Nadia chose to wear a lace Benjamin Roberts dress accessorised with dreamy Christian Louboutin gold glitter heels, just wait until you see them! Jonny went for a navy tweed suit with orange colour pop accessories for a modern yet classic look. Amazing.
Huge thanks goes to Katy Melling Photography for sharing these fabulous fine art images with us.
