Girl crush girl crush girl CRUSH!
Bride Roma is just the cutest, and what amazing fashion choices – a W-day gown from Spitalfields Market that was £30 (!) and then changing into an evening gown that she had treated herself to from Matthew Williamson 9 years previously….but never worn.
You see she was waiting for a really special occasion, and what could be more special than the day you say “I Do” to your future life partner?
The venue is truly spectacular too, Petersham Nurseries in Richmond, chosen for its similarities to Roma’s family home and the locality to where Max grew up. They also do amazing food – plenty of detail about menu choices included in the text folks.
And the car?!?! A Mercedes 300 SEL in turquoise blue…..I die.
Roma The Bride:My husband lived on the Farm (which is next to Petersham nurseries) during his 20’s and has spent a lot of his life in the Richmond area so it was important for him to get married in surroundings that held a lot of nostalgia. I have always loved going to Petersham Nurseries, it is so beautiful and a very reminiscent of my family’s home, so it seemed the perfect location for both of us.
They don’t normally do weddings, so for us, it was a true honour to have the privilege indeed!

Details details details…. this W-day is full of ‘em. And they are beautiful. Officially the prettiest “cheese” cake I have ever seen and the marquee interior is something else, think giant butterfly motifs, chandeliers and an abundance of blousy blooms.
And if you are a small-and-cute dog fan then Polly’s pooch will make your heart melt.
Oh and there is a second dress. And some you-will-want-to-steal favour ideas.
I know. We are so spoiling you today people.
Spread The Love
Rob and I made Raspberry Jam with labels that said ‘spread the love’. We also gave each female guest a mini birdcage which holds a tealight – which doubled as table decorations! We wanted everyone to have a memory of our day and also a token of appreciation for coming to Frome to share our day with us.
A Running Theme
I spent months planning the decoration. I found a company that lines marquees with linings with enormous butterflies on, as well as providing stunning chandeliers that you don’t normally find in a marquee. Butterflies, and birds then became a running them throughout the décor.
Setting The Table
Each table had a grey tablecloth (in keeping with the colour scheme) covered with yellow butterfly confetti which Rob and I punched out ourselves. The flowers were presented in white washed ceramic plant pots and alternating place settings had small grey birdcages on them, with yellow ribbon.
Each place setting had a card on it which gave a fun and random fact about the person to their left and to their right, to break the ice.… View the full post.
