21st September was the wedding of Amanda and Damien, which took place at Cooling Castle barn. Amanda and I met on and off for just over a year whilst the theme and styling all came together. The brief was to be elegant and romantic with a slight vintage feel brought through with the lace look.
Amanda wore a beautiful lace fishtail dress with a long flowing veil to match her hair style. The brides dream was to have peonies in her bouquet, but it is always tricky as you reach the later summer months. The three weeks before there weren't any but as I arrived at the market earlier in the week before the wedding, there they were! I teamed these with blousey roses, lisianthus, bouvardia and scabious which had the perfect "lacy" look.
The bridesmaids wore navy blue floor length fitted dresses and held similar version to the Bride. Three beautiful little flower girls scattered faux petals down the aisle... So cute.
Full and dramatic arrangements sat as a backdrop to the ceremony, setting off the whole look. Whilst the flowers on the table were statement pieces that filled the room. White covered chairs, sashes, fairly lights, lace and crystals all featured in the reception styling and all I could say once finished was "ooh sigh" x
