This couple enjoyed a beautiful summer wedding with an eclectic, rustic glamour look. Bride Katie tells us more…
How did Adam propose?
“Adam proposed at our home in London the day before Valentine’s Day. It was just the two of us and we were exchanging cards when he surprised me with a beautiful platinum ring that he had designed for me.”
What dress did you wear?
“I wore a multi-layered ivory lace gown by Justin Alexander. Friends Andrew and Rob own a gorgeous bridal shop on the South Coast near Portsmouth called Creatiques, and when I saw their stunning range, I knew I’d find my perfect dress there.”
And the accessories?
“I wore a simple vintage hair slide, which was a gift from Andrew and Rob at Creatiques. I also wore a pair of blue tinted Swarovski earrings and a simple pendant necklace that I borrowed from Adam’s mother.”
What did Adam wear?
“He wore a three-piece bespoke suit with a pair of double monk strap shoes. His suit was made of navy herringbone and he teamed this with a white shirt, ivory tie and pocket square.”
How did you feel when you saw him up the aisle?
“Seeing Adam looking very dapper and handsome I couldn’t wait to marry this man.”
Who were your bridesmaids and what dresses did they wear?
“My bridesmaids were all my best friends from school. Three of them were pregnant so I had to be considerate of their changing shape and I wanted each of them to feel comfortable. I decided on lightweight, floor-length navy gowns from Virgos Lounge.”
What was your theme?
“We both loved the idea of implementing summer festival elements, so we had a BBQ and our reception was in two tipis with a bonfire. The colour scheme was natural and earthy, however I wanted to add a touch of glamour so I included navy and scatterings of gold.”
What was your best buy?
“Our wedding cake. My good friend Renu and her husband Pardeep run a cake company called Sweet Hollywood and they made us a huge four-tiered Victoria sponge cake covered in hand-painted petals.”
