This crowning ceremony wedding doesn’t just look stunning… it also includes dogs. Now, we could leave it there, but, we should probably mention other aspects of this gorgeous day! All planned by Recommended Supplier, Rosie Barrett. Wanting a natural wedding in an outdoor setting, complete with plenty of foliage and flowers, Eve & Tom ensured this was an intimate day, with plenty of personal touches. Their ceremony incorporated Bulgarian traditions and elements of their life together, along with a string quartet! We just love the rustic yet elegant vibe this entire day emulates… and the dogs, don’t forget the dogs.

Crowning ceremony wedding with string quartet 

We wanted a very intimate wedding. Complete with personal elements and details that were important to us. Including custom music choices, unique decoration pieces, and a beautiful garden setting on a rare hot summer day.

We wanted a very natural wedding. A garden setting with a lot of space and a lot of foliage and flowers. We're both nature and animal-lovers! Our dogs walked down the aisle and spent the day in the garden with us. We had pictures of our parrots incorporated in the stationary design and table settings and decorations.


The ceremony was very special to us as it was entirely personalised by our Celebrant, Fan of Fanfare Ceremonies. Anecdotes from our story, elements of our life together a, and incorporating some Bulgarian traditions into the ceremony. We had also worked with the string quartet on custom music choices and adaptations of songs that were meaningful to us that featured throughout the ceremony.

We love the floral installations within the reception room complete with festoon lighting - so beautiful!

Find ways to make the day personal to you and prioritise what matters most to you as a couple.
