A very special wedding
I recently went to a very special friends wedding and it was as gorgeous and sophisticated as I imagined it would be, so I wanted to share some of the special details with you. It was simple, yet elegant. It didn’t try too hard to be “special” which made it all the more special. The more I looked at the different aspects of the wedding, the more I saw the hours of thought that must have been put into making the entire theme consistent in every detail. From the birdcage table plan to the birdcage used on the tables. From the love heart bulldog clips on the table plan to the love heart drop box frame, wherever I looked I could see touches of the overall theme.
Let’s start by talking about the princess of the day, or should I say queen! The bride looked divine! She wore a traditional white wedding gown with a flowing a-line full skirt overlaid with netting. It had a love heart neckline bodice which was overlaid with lace and gentle dropped lace straps across her arms. Her long dark hair was loosly tousled down her back and she wore a flower headband that matched the flowers in her bouquet. She looked beautiful!
The ceremony was one of joy and laughter, a perfect representation of the couple themselves.
When I arrived at the reception venue I was greeted by a much needed drink, a choice of Pimms and lemonade, orange juice or a little bit of fizz. Everywhere I looked it had a very Disney/ Maid Marian feeling that filled you with a soft and fluffy feeling inside.
Hung on the wall in the corridor was a birdcage table plan, framed with flowers, for guests to see what table they would be sitting at for the dinner, each table was named after a delicate flower, bluebell, daisy, Lilly and each plan clipped to the birdcage with a love heart bulldog clip. Underneath the table plan was a simply laid table with a ‘beauty and the beast’ style rose under a jar along with a candle and a simple message to all guests, ‘be our guest.’
I love weddings so much. It’s the start of something special, it’s a time that you can unapologetically be all lovey dovey and fairytale and this wedding provided it all. Such a special day for a special couple.
