Real Bride | Beaded Jenny Packham Dress | Gold and Freshwater Pearl Vine Avery

Poppy came in for an appointment a few months ago and I really remember how relaxed and excited she was about her wedding and when she sent us this photo I think it really sums it up!

She chose our gorgeous freshwater pearl golden hair vine Avery which went so well with her beaded Jenny Packham dress. She must have glimmered in the light as her and husband Tom had their first dance to Enterlude by The Killers.

They married at the Holy Trinity Church in Stratford-Upon-Avon and had their reception at the Arden Hotel. Poppy's godfather read this wonderful advice by Ogden Nash:

'To keep your marriage brimming
With love in the loving cup
Whenever you’re wrong, admit it

Whenever you’re right, shut up.'

I think this is excellent advice to live by! With music supplied by local band The Clones and steelpan superstar Mighty Jamma they must have had a day full of dancing and joy.

'We decided to have a small wedding of 60 people. We wanted closest friends and family. It was so intimate.

Marrying Tom was just magical. He is truly the love of my life and I'm thankful everyday that I have him. We've been on a real journey to get to where we are now. I wouldn't change all our life experiences we've had together. Some have been testing and cruel but it's shaped us to what we are now. Its genuine, real love.'

Excuse me, I think I have something in my eye...

What a beautiful person inside and out, thank you so much Poppy for sharing this with us, I hope you and Tom have the best life together. Also thank you to Millie Benbow for capturing this beautiful moment

I currently live in the beautiful city of Bath with my lovely boyfriend and even more lovely cat, Mr Cheeks. I’m part of the making team here at Britten and when I’m not making beautiful things at work I’m probably making beautiful things at home or on the hunt for the best fish and chips in the land!
