Hello folks, here's a little wedding to see you in to Thursday evening. Sarah and Nick tied the knot on 14th September 2014 at Buxted Park Hotel in East Sussex. The couple had met on a blind date almost 3 years earlier and were engaged for 9 months before they tied the knot. They wanted a traditional wedding with vintage and homemade touches. Pale blue has long been one of my favourite colours and it's lovely to see it utilised to elegantly by way of those beautiful bridesmaids dresses from Ghost too.
"I wore a Lusan Mandongus dress that I purchased from Teokath in Wimbledon. I loved the design of this classic dress – it had beautiful back detail that I added a vintage brooch to – an heirloom that had been passed down through Nick's family. I did however change in to a cream maxi dress in the evening so that I could enjoy the dancing."

"Our Florist was Pollen Flowers – we chose vintage roses in muted peach and pink with lots of natural loose flowers and rosemary and flowering mint and mismatched china and glassware on the tables for an eclectic, ununiformed feel.
"We used lots of accessories from our own home to decorate the room – mismatched cake stands for the cupcakes, lots of different tea light holders and candles mixed in with the flower displays, bird cage table planner, old wine boxed with wedding favours inside… we really tried to use our own vintage style on the venue to make it feel a little bit like home and personal to us."
I adore these elegant pale blue silk dresses by Ghost that Sarah's bridesmaids wore. Ghost design such feminine dresses – beautiful choice Sarah.
“Our photographer Lydia Stamps was amazing! She caught natural (un-posed) shots of Nick and I, as well as all of our guests having fun! She really caught the special moments and was very discrete on the day.”
"My dad walked me down the aisle to the sound of Canon in D by Pachelbel. We then had a ceremony with classic Catholic church vows – and I cried through them all!
Our reading was 'Love', by Roy Croft. The words in Love really summed up our relationship and were similar to what we would have said if we had written our own vows, so it felt very personal; 'I love you, because you have done more than any creed could have done to make me good, and more than any fate could have done to make me happy'."
Words of Wedded Wisdom…
“Don’t worry about the weather! Pick somewhere where there is an indoor option and then don’t think about sunshine or rain… it won’t even cross your mind once the day starts because you will be enjoying it all so much! Oh and let people help you on the day so you can enjoy the lead up and excitement without getting stressed… pick your bridesmaids carefully as they are the people with you the night before and on the morning!
It's hard to pick a favourite moment from the day, but entering the wedding breakfast as husband and wife and being applauded by all of our closest friends and family and of course, the party in the evening – the whole thing really was the best day of our lives!"
Thanks so much to photographer Lydia Stamps for sharing this wedding. And congratulations Sarah and Nick, I hope that your first year of marriage brings you much joy.

Love the bridesmaid dresses! I’ve looked on Ghost website & can’t find them? If anyone can provide a link or style name – you’d make a bride to be very happy indeed! xx
Claire, the style is called Taya. They’re on the Ghost website, just search for the style name. They’re dye to order too so you can get a range of colours! These were very nearly my bridesmaid dresses, simply gorgeous in person, but my maids fancied something strapless 🙂
Hope this helps!
Claire, the style name is Taya. It’s on the Ghost website, just search for the name. It’s a dye to order dress too so comes in lots of colours! They’re lovely dresses, really gorgeous in the flesh! Nearly had these for my bridesmaids but they chose something strapless in the end. Hope this helps!
Oooh I hope we get a response here for you Claire! Thanks for leaving a comment xXx
Ah, thanks so much for sharing this gorgeous wedding Annabel. I’ve asked Sarah to dig out the info Claire so hope we can help! 🙂 xx
Hi Claire… I am glad you like the bridesmaid dresses! They looked gorgeous on the girls on the day. They are the Taya style in Sea Green x
I like your reception venue! The ambiance is so peaceful and solemn!
Stunning images – what a beauty of a wedding 🙂 x
I love how bright and fresh the photos look. Sometimes the small details that brides some time find get overlooked, the photographer’s captured loads at this wedding which looks great. 🙂
This Wedding is amazing, the attention to detail is just mind blowing. I especially like the floral jugs that were on a table with flowers in. Does anyone know who they are made by? There are simply stunning pictures that I’m sure will be cherished forever
