Bride Emily is a professional ballet dancer currently performing in The Phantom of the Opera, and Groom Dayle is a singer\/actor who\u2019s played parts in Les Mis, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and more recently The Jersey Boys. Their wonderful tent wedding took place in the gardens of Great Ote Hall in Sussex where they were blessed by the sun and so much joy. Dayle and his Jersey Boy co-stars put on a special performance for Emily with her reaction to the surprise caught perfectly by Holly Rose Photography, not to heartfelt mention so many more wedding day moments. \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWHAT MADE OUR DAY UNIQUEE\r\n"I am from Australia and my husband is from here in the UK, so we wanted to mix the two cultures together, bringing the laid back outdoor lifestyle to a very English picturesque setting. The whole wedding was outside with a sit-down BBQ as the wedding meal serving a selection of typical Aussie food like shrimp and kangaroo! We are both performers in London\u2019s Westend so there was a surprise performance from our friends who are all singers in Musicals in the Westend. The whole day was non stop singing and dancing!" - Emily & Dayle\r\n\r\n\r\nPronovias Wedding Dress\r\nI love a Pronovias wedding dress, I was a Pronovias bride myself! They always seem to design the most exquisite gowns in stunning silhouettes, including delicate lace, embroidery and embellishments to make each one truly unique. Bride Emily's Vicenta gown is no exception with its illusion neckline and fishtail design suiting her down to the ground. Her finger wave hairstyle and lace-edged veil billowing in the wind finishes off her glamourous bridal look beautifully.

Our main priority was that all of our guests had just as an amazing day as we did. There was live music from the ceremony right through till the end of the evening, unlimited drinks, BBQ, pizza van, a quiz game and a photo booth. The dance floor was full the whole night! We wanted the outdoors to carry on in the sailcloth tent, so we used eucalyptus (which also linked in my Australian background as its native to Australia) and lots of green foliage as our main source of decoration. All the colours were very neutral and although we wanted an outdoor relaxed vibe, we also wanted it to be classy!" - Emily & Dayle\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nEmily & Dayle handmade almost all of their wedding decorations, including their table numbers, welcome sign, seating signs, table plan, wedding arch, invitations, menus, and bridesmaid coat hangers and robes.
