We’re totally in love with this breathtaking, classic white wedding. Bride Jodie tells her story…
How did Matt propose?
“On our six-year anniversary, Matt took me back to a place we visited on our first Christmas together and proposed. Bewdley will always hold a special place in our hearts.”
What dress did you wear?
“My wedding dress was a beautiful Augusta Jones design, which I purchased from Georgina Scott Bridal in Stourbridge.”
And the accessories?
“A vintage-style hair clip, a veil from Georgina Scott Bridal, and my kitty shoes were a gift from Matt, by Charlotte Olympia.”
What did Matt wear?
“He wore a three-piece grey tail suit from Peter Posh in Wolverhampton.”
How did you feel when you saw him up the aisle?
“Total excitement, I couldn’t wait to get to the end of the aisle!”
Who were your bridesmaids and what dresses did they wear?
“We asked my two cousins Tara and Corin, Matt’s younger sister Daisy and our friend Laura to be our bridesmaids. Their dresses were a bespoke design, made by my auntie.”
What was your theme?
“I could never decide on a colour scheme, so we decided to make a classic white wedding our theme, based around the flowers that we wanted to use.”
What was the highlight of your day?
“There were so many! The church service, reception venue, cars, seeing all of our guests – we just couldn’t have asked for more.”
What was your best buy?
“We rented a self-drive red Jaguar E-Type. Matt had always wanted the opportunity to drive one and we thought, if not now, when? It really did look gorgeous – even if squashing my dress into the passenger seat wasn’t the easiest!”
What’s your saving tip?
“We actually made all of our wedding stationery ourselves and only had certain items printed professionally. It ended up saving us a lot of money and meant that we could make everything that little bit more personal. If you both have time to do it, it’s really quite fun to put everything together.”
