  • “Take a few moments on the day to just look. I made sure at certain points I tried to take everything in and make a mental picture in my mind. I specifically remember how the light looked shining through the tree’s just after we had eaten and Andy came over and gave me a kiss on the forehead and that moment I hope to remember forever. Also spend as much time with your groom as possible – dance, laugh and kiss – the time will fly by."

  • This lady's dress has caused rather a stir on Instagram today (swipe to see). But we all need to take a moment to appreciate her bouquet too - she and her maids bouquets were all DIY'd and whilst simple (a handful of hydrangea stems), they were extraordinarily beautiful and looked fabulous in the images.
⠀⠀⠀
The maids (swipe to see) were asked to wear whatever they like, providing it fit in with the colour scheme 🙌🏻😊

  • “I absolutely loved everything about the dress but perhaps my favourite element was the fabric. I was sure all along that I wanted a fabric with a beautiful texture to it – I was the most difficult customer. But Angela found the most insane silk-wool cloqué that had to be especially made to order from a mill in France. It was just so beautiful; it had that classic bridal silk feel but with an unexpectedly modern twist – the dream. I was completely obsessed with the detachable train element of my dress. The actual dress was quite a slim cut, but the train added such a sense of occasion for the ceremony. It fastened to the dress with the most beautiful little buttons, that Angela covered in the same fabric by hand. Being quite intimidated by even the thought of wearing a dress I Initially wanted the length to be much shorter, but Angela said more is more – and I’m so so pleased she managed to persuade me of this! I loved the train so much I didn’t take it off until gone midnight.”

THAT DRESS. Oh my, crafted by a retired dressmaker and family friend and modelled to perfection by @lucymaythomas, image by the very talented @lucysugdensmith.

  • “I fell in love with my Temperley dress instantly. It’s so unique with gold and white embroidery and is bohemian but with a glamorous twist. A touch vintage with modern geometric patterns, it felt romantic, floaty and utterly unique! Alice Temperley is a local Somerset designer, so it felt like it was meant to be.”

  • “When planning, the choice is pretty overwhelming. At first Pinterest boards helped to narrow down styles and designs we liked, then we quickly decided that we wanted to go with local suppliers as much as possible, for example by using Etsy suppliers to create bespoke designs. We tended to go for suppliers who lived in areas of the country we had connections with (e.g. Devon, Bristol and London)."

  • “We both love classic elegance that is simplistic, so we knew we wanted a wedding that followed this style. We married in a vineyard in France, so decided to bring the colour of the red grape into the styling. Gary and I decided upon Bordeaux as the weather is excellent, in fact it was 40 degrees on our wedding day! We also love red wine and great food, so it was a no brainer.”
