About the Wedding.
Our wedding took place in the beautiful Cotswolds, England on Saturday 31st March 2018. The ceremony was held in the historic St John The Baptist church in a quaint and idyllic little English village called Colerne. The reception then followed at the stunning and unique Lost Orangery at Euridge Manor.
Tom proposed to me underneath the Faraglioni Arch on the island of Capri in August 2016. We have always loved Italy and have spend many summer holidays there together, so it will always have a special place in our hearts for many reasons. This is why we fell in love with The Lost Orangery as soon as we went to visit, it’s unique and European influences both in terms of architecture and interiors created the perfect setting to capture our love for the Mediterranean.
As a wedding planners and stylists ourselves, my sister Nancy and I were so inspired by the unique Italian feel of the venue which was reminiscent of another time altogether and had an unusual look of the rococo. Our styling evoked the Mediterranean feel of The Lost Orangery by incorporating shells (which were embedded into the architecture of the orangery), linens, silk and the timeless marble which was a beautiful feature. Stunning flowers were designed by Bloom Fleuriste with elegant silver toned foliage, hints of olive branches and beautiful cappuccino and blush roses throughout.
My dress designed by Calla Blanche was also reminiscent of European style with heavy lace embroidery and a magnificent train which captured the drama of wedding itself. I wore this with a pair of rose gold Sophia Webster heels, a delicately embroidered cathedral length veil, statement jewellery and a beautiful rose gold hairpiece. A stunning and delicate rose gold bracelet from Monica Vinader was a last minute addition to my wedding attire (it was a surprise gift from Tom on the morning of our wedding).
