Pink Flamingos + Yellow Candy Anthony Dress ~ Part 1

EEEKKKKKKKKkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk i am in pure wedded heaven today and by the end of the day i think you will be too. Sarah and Craig had the most incredible yellow and pink themed wedding, which included flamingos, a yellow wedding dress from Candy Anthony {swooonnn}, those Vivienne Westwood Lady Dragons, pom poms and fairy lights {more on those later!}.

In fact it is just so wondrous i had to split it into two parts. So first up we have a gorgeous Church ceremony in Worcestershire, and as you can see the rain sure didn’t dampen down the vibrancy of this day. I think this is one of my favourite features yet, i hope you’ll agree :-)

Thanks so much to Sarah and Craig for sharing their day with {www}. The simply beautiful photography is by the lovely and uber talented Aga at photoTOM Photography, huge thanks so Aga for letting me share her work. And enjoy….

The Proposal….

We were in New York in December (it was freezing!) and had just been to Grand Central Station for oysters and champagne and then went on to a little restaurant in the Meat Packing district called ‘Fatty Crab’. We had a lovely table by the window with lots of candles and Craig proposed in there. The next morning I was leaving early so was at the airport on my own and couldn’t stop crying – I must have looked really silly!

The Vision for the day….

I had always known that I wanted an unusual wedding and people know me for my clothes – particularly bright colours! I also knew that I didn’t want to look like a ‘bride’ but I wanted to look and feel like me. I did try on some conventional long white dresses but hated now ‘normal’ they were! I was in Tokyo on a work trip and saw some giant tissue paper pom poms in yellow which I bought and this was the start of the yellow and fuschia pink theme (which are my two favourite colours ) When my best friend Clair was getting married a couple of years ago she had been to Candy Anthony to try on dresses and told me at the time that that would be where I would get my dress from. The 50s prom style was perfect and when I went to try some dresses on they happened to have a new yellow sample. As soon as I tried it on I knew I couldn’t have a white dress. My Mum thought I was mad all the way through I think but in the end thought it all looked amazing and was so happy that it was so ‘me’. There was also a slight Alice in Wonderland theme with the flamingos and cake etc.

Church Readings + Music…

We had the usual Corinthians reading (!) plus an extract from one of my favourite children’s books  – The Velveteen Rabbit. I walked in to the church to the Arrival of the Queen of Sheba and we walked (or danced!) out to Signed Sealed Delivered by Stevie Wonder.


Beautiful bridesmaids…..

I wanted them to stand out from the yellow and pink but still fit within the 50’s look so the spotty black and white prom dresses from John Lewis were perfect. Pink shoes and flower hair bands finished off the look.

The Flowers…

It was tricky with the time of year to get bright flowers but we managed to get gerberas and roses to match the theme. Bouquets were hand tied with ribbons I bought from VV Rouleaux.

Come back for part 2 {the reception} later tofay…
