There is nothing more special about your wedding day than celebrating with your loved ones and that is how our real bride Lucy set the rhythm of her day.
Lucy started her day by getting ready in a gorgeous home surrounded by her family and bridesmaids, with her little cousins having fun in the swimming pool and the occasional presence of some little wet noses and fluffy tails of the family dogs helped complete the perfect family occasion.
As the nerves started setting in, Lucy started getting all the finishing touches in place to create her perfect bridal look. In a beautiful lace Mikaella 2016 dress, Lucy finished her look with our Barely There wedding veil Skylar in Ivory floor length which complimented and showed off the beautiful detail in her hair and dress.
"Feeling really nervous walking into the church and then suddenly feeling calmer when I saw Steph waiting for me at the end of the aisle"
Thank you so much Lucy for sharing these beautiful pictures of your amazing wedding day and to Jun Tan Weddings for your incredible photographs of the day.
I'm so so happy to be able to share with you these images of the gorgeous Jo on her wedding day.
For their city wedding in Marylebone she wore an incredible pleated satin midi dress by Charlie Brear which was complimented beautifully by our fingertip cut edge veil Niacae. Her shoes were courtesy of a footwear buyer friend of hers who had them made by one of her Italian suppliers - isn't it great when you have friends like this?! I am especially in love with her pom pom earrings which were from J Crew.
They got married a 4pm at the Asia House Registry office and Jo says one of her favourite memories was how she couldn't stop grinning when she walked down the aisle towards husband to be, Paul. She also told us that her sister had some words embroidered onto a handkerchief that she imagined their Father would’ve said to her had he still been alive. She kept the hankie in the pocket of her wedding dress and it read
‘My darling daughter, of all the walks we have taken this will be my favourite. I will be by your side every step of the way. Let me wipe away any tears that may fall. Love you always, Daddy x’
What a moving present to have made, I'm sure this will be treasured forever.
After the ceremony they were walking around Marylebone with their photographer to get some photos and people kept stopping them in the street to congratulate them! She said that flagging a cab down in her wedding dress on Marylebone High Street felt like she was in a movie!
For their dinner in the evening they went to The Grazing Goat nearby. They didn't have a traditional first dance or dance-floor but Jo said that they had 'You Make My Dreams Come True' by Hall & Oates as they left the ceremony, which she tried (and failed!) to get Paul to dance down the aisle to!
They went to Greece for a week after the wedding for a mini honeymoon before their main one in January where they're going to Sri Lanka for 3 weeks.
Thank you so much Jo for sharing these gorgeous memories with us and to Annelie Eddy for your fantastic photographs.
Mingyi captured her incredible day at a picturesque location of Dodford Manor in Northhamptonshire.
Her stunning dress was found in at Blackburn Bridal in London who help many brides find the dress of their dreams, she finished of her dress perfectly with our single tier cut edge Niace veil and customised shoes from Shoes of Prey! It's every girls dream to design their own wedding shoes!
"I absolutely loved the veil. It was the perfect accessory for my dress. I couldn’t imagine a better veil!"
Mingyi absolutely fell in love with their wedding venue and drew inspiration for her wedding style from a number of her favourite blogs, Instagram accounts and some of the top bridal magazines.
"We loved the venue so much we decided to have minimal décor except the flowers. My husband and I both like the colour blue and yellow so we stick with that colour scheme and let the florists and the venue team do their magic. We were really relaxed during the whole preparation and put really little effort into the whole thing. The result was way beyond our expectation thanks to all the amazing suppliers."
Their florist Field Gate Flowers and Dodford Manor did an amazing job of making their day absolutely perfect!
Mingyi's Memorable Moment
"I couldn’t stop crying when I was walking down the aisle! I looks like a reindeer in all the photos taken during the ceremony"
From the gorgeous photos we have seen Mingyi was far from a reindeer on her big day, she looks incredible and so so happy whilst looking into her husbands eyes.
Thank you so much Mingyi for sharing moments of your special day with us and to your photographer Carrie Lavers for capturing their most special day.
Colette got married at Boswell's Coach House set in the Auchinleck Estate in Ayrshire and her day could not have looked more perfect!
Her gorgeous lace dress by La Sposa was finished off beautifully by our silk style Isabella veil and a pair of Valentino Rockstuds (we're not jealous at all!) Also as we make our own accessories I probably shouldn't mention her stunning earrings which are by Australian designer Christie Nicolaides but I'm going to anyway as I think they're so great! She also had her Mum's wedding band which I think is such a lovely touch.
During the ceremony they had a reading from Captain Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis De Bernieres:
Those that truly love, have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.
They also had music played by Sedona Park who are a guitarist and violinist who do modern songs, they played a version of Biffy Clyro's 'Mountains' and The Macabees 'Toothpaste Kisses' as they signed their marriage certificate - what a lovely way to remember such a special moment with a song?
They had yet more music in the evening from ceilidh band The Tatties, if you've never tried ceilidh dancing then you are missing out! They must have had so much fun swinging their way through the evening.
The gorgeous couple spent their honeymoon in Dubai followed by Mauritius of which Colette said "it was wonderful to chill out after such a busy few weeks."
Thank you so much Colette for sharing your memories with us of your wedding day and thank you so much to Steven Gallagher for these incredible photographs, Colette told us that Steven was the most amazing photographer and that all of their guests couldn't stop telling them how highly they thought of him!
I hope you and Fraser are happily enjoying married life together.
Our real bride Kathryn is a beautiful example of a bride in a pure white wedding veil! She's also proof that you don't need a long veil to make an impact, the train on her stunning beaded Umbriel dress by Eliza Jane Howell was the real focal point and the veil blended in so well. Fingertip length veils are perfect for dresses with lots of detail as they don't detract and as they're short you can keep them on all day long if you want to!
Our Isabella veil made of silk soft tulle is perfect for a classic vintage look like Kathryn and the material feels so beautiful to wear.
Thank you so much Kathryn for sending us these gorgeous images and thank you to Ian Southworth at Peartree Pictures for your lovely photos.
I hope you and your husband had an amazing day and that you have a wonderful life together!
When Jayne sent us these photos it really made my day! She chose our classic single tier ivory veil in a church length called Niacae for her stunning church wedding. The beaded detail on the back of her Luciana dress by Jenny Packham must have sparkled so beautifully under those incredible lights!
"I just wanted to write to say thank you for my beautiful veil that I ordered for my wedding day! I ordered online, your images were so helpful and really showed a true reflection of what I had ordered! It came in literally a few days in the most beautiful packaging and I did just want to thanks because it really did just finish off my dress perfectly!"
Thank you so much Jayne for sharing these with us and thank you to Picturesque by Mr and Mrs M for your wonderful photography and capturing such a romantic day.
I just had to share this gorgeous photo from our real bride Lucy who wore a bespoke blush pink Luna headband on her wedding day and our Juliet cap veil, Jules. I may be biased because I love juliet cap veils and Luna is my name but this has to be one of my favourite combinations! I always love it when brides incorporate a little bit of colour into their look and the soft pink complimented her stunning bouquet beautifully. Doesn't she look radiant?
Thank you so much Lucy for sharing this lovely image with us and to Pete Cranston for your photography skills.
Receiving images of happy brides is such a joy and I'm so happy I get to share them with you!
Our bride Juliet was another lucky lady whose perfect veil was named after her. Our juliet cap veil Jules in a ballet length was such a perfect choice to wear with her gorgeous Rose dress from Whistles, its bardot neckline was perfect for a classic vintage style and she looked completely radiant! The whole day was so full of smiles and everyone looked like they were having the best time.
Thank you so much Juliet for sharing your pictures with us and to Liberty Peal Photography for capturing some amazing shots. I hope you and Simon have the happiest life together!
We absolutely loved receiving images from our bride Cate on her wedding day, she looked incredible in her classic A-Line satin dress with a beautiful sweetheart neckline. She finished off her look on the day with our two tier satin edge veil Sandy which complimented her dress perfectly.
"I just wanted to say thank you! I loved the veil and it was perfect for my dress! We finally got the official pictures and I wanted to share some with you!"
Thank you so much Cate for sharing pictures of your big day with us! We couldn't resist sharing them with our readers. Thank you to David Bastianoni for your beautiful images.
A great start to the week is receiving emails from our brides over the weekend with pictures of their special day. I love my Monday mornings and seeing these pictures make it that extra special!
Our real bride Jade looked absolutely amazing and finished off her look perfectly with our barely there veil Skylar in a floor length and off-white. The perfect veil to show off the detail throughout the back of her beautiful fitted wedding dress. Her and her husband look like they have had an amazing day and super happy day!
"I absolutely loved my barely their veil, it finished the dress off perfectly without distracting eyes from the back detail of my dress."
Thank you so much for sharing these with us and putting a smile on all of our faces and thank you to Barnaby Aldrick Wedding Photography for your beautiful pictures.
