Inspiration

It's the last bank holiday of the year, so make the most of it by treating yourself to five minutes with this off the chart adorable wedding in the Cotswolds. Our beautiful bride dazzles in a beaded wedding dress, the wonderful wedding day moments will warm the heart, and the rustic decor and foliage floristry will have you rethinking your own theme. Enjoy.

Advice

I don’t think we followed specific traditions necessarily, but there were some important personal touches we made that were really special and made some great memories; and I’d recommend to brides to think about personal/unique touches that you could make to your day that would mean a lot to your friends and family (and therefore create more of a surprise, memory and keepsake rather than a expected tradition)…

Laura & Matt

Beaded Wedding Dress

Bride Laura would've never imagined choosing a beaded wedding dress, but she fell in love with the exquisite Jenny Packham Dallas gown the moment she tried it on. We can totally see why. The impeccable design and embellishment sparkled throughout their country wedding, especially those golden hour portraits. Sarah-Jane Ethan Photography also captured a wonderful moment during the outdoor wedding ceremony of Groom Matt lovingly glancing at his bride that literally made my heart burst.

Laura & Matt
Laura & Matt used to enjoy many a weekend in the Cotswolds, it was on one of their trips Matt decided he was going to propose to Laura. He also couldn't wait to share his choice of venue, the wonderful Cripps Barn, moments after he popped the big question and she accepted.
