Tania and Matt

The bright blue sky, and striking snow-covered mountains set the perfect backdrop for young skiers, Tania and Matt who fell madly in love on their ski season in Whistler, Canada. Their romance has only since blossomed, epitomised when Tania’s every dream came true and her prince charming knelt-down in front of the striking, orange sunset on a rooftop in Marbella and asked for her hand in marriage. 7 years later, with her dusty pink rose bouquet in her hands, diamond engagement ring glistening, Matt watched in awe as his picturesque bride drifted elegantly down the aisle towards their future together. Matt wore a three-piece, dark grey, wool blended suit; he’d always known he would marry his dream woman in style. The bridesmaids looked flawless at this intimate wedding, wearing navy gowns with a variation of styles and shapes to individually suit the character and style of each bridesmaid. But it was Tania who excelled everyone’s expectation of beauty. In her La Sposa, St Patrick wedding gown, the bride looked effortlessly gorgeous.

Did your wedding have a theme or colour scheme?

With handmade cushions and bunting, we followed through with a natural theme. The cake was decorated like mountains, we had home potted plants for the centre pieces, decorative wooden hearts and water jugs full of meadow flowers.

How did you choose the style of your hair?

I searched the internet for images of natural hair styles of long hair that had been styled up. I knew I wanted to show of the back of my dress and didn't want my hair to hide it once I had removed my veil.

 

How and why did you select your florist?

Our florist for the bouquets was my mother in law! She had a bit more spare time on her hands around the run up to the wedding and she offered to do it. She took lessons, practiced and communicated with me a lot about what I wanted. It was lovely, as it meant she was very involved with something. Matt's parents live down south so it was great to have them as involved as they were.


Did you have a dress budget, and did you stick to it?

Yes and Yes! I purposefully disregarded any dressed that exceeded my budget - you have got to have a budget or the whole wedding can get out of control!

Were you nervous the night before your wedding, if so, how did you overcome the nerves?

I didn't have time to be nervous, to be honest. The two days before the wedding were filled with prepping the marquee and the club and by the time Friday night rolled around I barley even had time to wash my hair! My bridesmaids all popped over and dropped off their dresses so I was distracted chatting with them until late! It suddenly all hit me at the church!

 

What was your favourite moment of your wedding?

Walking to the reception from the church with Matt, behind all our guests, and having a breather and a moment alone.

 

If you could go back to the planning stage of your wedding, what would you do differently and why?

If I thought about it long and hard there were would probably be a few things that I would change but at the end of the day we both had the best day and it all went really well!

 

What is the best piece of advice you could offer another bride?

Enjoy the planning and try not to stress about it. It really does all come together at the last minute. Research and trust your suppliers. I found it really helpful that Matt was so involved with the planning of the wedding, it really helped in the long term and on the day it was our creation and suited us both perfectly. Have a plan, this helped me and the bridemaids be on time for the church and have a vague plan of how you want the day to proceed so the best man can prompt you both throughout the day...you'll find you get lost in the moment and time whizzes by. Try to soak up as much of the day as possible as it goes by so quickly.

 

What are you most looking forward too about married life?

Spending more time with Matt, travelling, spending time with families and settling down a little.

A Bride's Eye View

David and Trisha

The icy windows condensed as logs burnt and crackled in the fireplace; the flickering flames complementing the Christmas tree lights that twinkled in the corner. The living room floor was covered in wrapping paper, that had been torn open just moments ago. As Trisha began to tidy up her parents living room, now the chaos of present giving was over, one chilly Christmas morning, David pulled her aside and insisted she took a seat on the sofa. With glee and anticipation on her boyfriends and her parents faces, Trisha grew anxious until suddenly David dropped down to his knee and asked for her hand in marriage. The rest of the day was filled with joyous smiles and tears as Trisha’s disbelief shook her.

Trish would never have guessed that after a chance meeting in a club, late one night, that eventually David’s persistence would prevail and one first date would lead to the rest of their lives together. The loved-up couple tied the knot at their magical ceremony at Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre in The Oak Room before all 100 of the evening guests filled the beautifully decorated Tipis at Inkersall Grange Farm. This laid-back wedding focused on all the guests enjoying a fun filled day, celebrating the love between Trisha and David.

 

The bride took everyone’s breath away in her stunning Eliza Jane Howell wedding gown. The flowing A-Line dress created a flowing and naturally beautiful style to Trisha’s wedding attire, complemented flawlessly by the full-length embellishment and loose cap shelves that worked effortlessly with her loosely curled, half-up hair do. The floral arrangements were sublime.  A combination of pink, peach, garden green and lavender to coordinate with the gorgeous bridesmaids who followed Trish down the aisle, dressed in heavenly lavender gowns. David’s paisley coloured bow tie and pocket square topped of the colourful and avant-garde wedding outfits. The couple looked magnificent as they cruised off in their vintage wedding car after a magical day of celebrations before jetting off to honeymoon in Santorini, Greece.

Did you wear a veil, if so, what style?

I was reluctant to wear a veil but my mum bought it anyway, she kept saying, 'see how you feel on the day'. It turns out, on the day it just finished off the look perfectly! It was a fingertip length veil by Rainbow Club. I’m so pleased my mum prepared!!

 

How did you choose the style of your hair?

A lot of hair trials! I would definitely recommend you must be clear and precise about what style you are after. I tried up, down and half do's until deciding what suited me best.

 

 

Were you nervous the night before your wedding, if so, how did you overcome the nerves?

I surprisingly wasn't too nervous. I had spent the entire day before at the tipis decorating them all day long and it was pouring with rain so naturally we were all exhausted. It didn't feel like the wedding was actually ever happening and I surprisingly I managed to sleep really well! I was more nervous in the morning but seeing my best friends looking stunning as bridesmaids, my family looked so happy and of course a glass Bucks Fizz helped.

 

What was your favourite moment of your wedding?

My favourite part of the wedding was the ceremony! This was the part I was most nervous for, but it really was amazing, and so fun walking out together as husband and wife.

 

What is the best piece of advice you could offer another bride?

If you find yourself getting stressed during planning, I found it helpful to write down a list of what's left to do, and tick as you go. It seems much simpler written down on a piece of paper and makes it feel so much more manageable. Also, remind yourself of why you are doing this, it’s not worth all the stress, just enjoy a magical day celebrating your love.
