Trevyn and Harry

It was 2 days before Christmas and Trevyn was excitedly preparing her final details and plans for the festive celebrations. Her boyfriend, Harry gleefully explained that he had a special plan for the couple in the morning named 'Project Elf' which, to Trevyn's disappointment who is a less of an 'early bird', included an early start. When the time arrived, Harry whisked away his beautiful, but rather sleepy and a little bit grumpy, girlfriend off to Haytor Rocks, Dartmoor. After a trek up the rocks, the happy couple watched the sunrise and snapped some stunning photos, when Trevyn thought they were about to leave. However, much to her surprise Harry knelt down on one knee and asked for Trevyn's hand in marriage.

The wedding was a huge success with an intimate ceremony on the first day and grand, fun filled party on the second. Set in the stunning Great Barn in Devon, the venue was picturesque and dressed in white and cream flowers. Trevyn stole the show and took her grooms breath away when she walked down the aisle. Dressed in a beautiful, embellished Eliza Jane Howell wedding gown, Trevyn looked flawless in this cap sleeve, v neck, vintage style gown. Her hair was curled with a 1920's vintage head piece that finished off a fairytale look. As she walked towards the man of her dreams, any nerves and ants were relieved and Trevyn couldn't wait to say yes to spending the rest of her life with the man of her dreams.

I was a little nervous. My go to for nerves is sugary tea and time with my mum.

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

I would have a photographer who was with us both days for the whole time. Unlimited natural photos. I got caught up in needing to provide formal photos for friends and family and lost out a little on the more natural fun photos.

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

I was terrified in the planning stages, I don't like being center of attention and the whole thing just seemed so overwhelming. On the day, none of that matters, those feelings slip away as soon as you see your groom and then the rest of the day feels like you're swept up in a fairytale. So my advice is try not to worry.

 

How did you choose your suppliers?

Mostly on recommendations from other brides.

 

What are you most looking forward too about married life?

Going on adventures as husband and wife.
