OK….enough of the rain!! I’m in serious danger of growing gills and fulfilling a secret desire to be Ariel from The Little Mermaid. So today, I am going to add a bit of sunshine to your day by sharing the loveliness that is Laura and Sion’s wedding. Back in August last year this lovely couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at St. Lawrence Church in Napton, Warwickshire, followed by a rather glamorous and fun reception at Dodford Manor in Northamptonshire….yep a wedding across two counties!
Laura decided to get ready at her mums house and choose one of my favourite wedding dresses from Justin Alexander
Now those of you who know me will understand just how excited I get when faced with a pair of Jimmy Choo (unfortunately they wouldn’t fit in my camera bag 🙁 )
Laura managed to combine a really clever mixture of styles into the day…there was a very definate vintage feel that ran throughout the wedding with classic touches of country garden and a large dash of glamour. Her flowers captured this beautifully with classic roses and a hint of sparkle from the talented Suzanne Evetts Florist in Warwickshire.Laura chose the lovely and ultra professional Rochelle O’Brien to do her make-up on the day.Melanie Rhodes from The Bridal Hair Stylist was on hand to do Laura’s beautiful hair.I am so lucky to spend a lot of time at some of the most gorgeous barn venues throughout the UK and Dodford Manor has to be up there as one of my favourites. It’s elegant, bright and the staff are some of the most friendly and accommodating that I have met. The reception room is simply stunning with huge windows overlooking the green fields outside. Laura and Sion are huge film fans. Their table names were such fun, each taking the name of one of their favourite films accompanied by a fab quote from it….love Top Gun!!!
The yummy cupcakes were made by a very clever family friend and added a fabulous blast of colour in to the room!
I’m showing 2 pictures of the desserts as they were like mini works of art!
Ah…the difference between the boys and the girls after a few drinks!!! A huge thanks to Laura and Sion for being such an amazing couple and to their guests for being such good fun xxx
