We wanted the most casual and fun celebration of our love possible. We didn’t want anyone to feel rushed or strained. Fancy taking off your tie or heels? Go for it. I think the party began at about 6 am when we arrived to get ready. The suppliers and guests alike all enjoyed it because of this. It was a perfect party, from dusk til dawn.

Illusion sleeve wedding dress

Illusion dresses have the enchanting ability to captivate attention and evoke a unique sense of wonder. These wedding dresses are crafted with delicate sheer inserts or underlays, along with daring cutouts, resulting in an exquisite visual effect. Chantelle's wedding dress exudes luxury and is captivating in every way. Those illusion sleeves? Chef's kiss. The gown showcases a mesmerising combination of floral and Chantilly lace, adorned with a dazzling array of hand-beaded embellishments. A magnificent yet graceful tulle train, accentuated with intricate lace detailing at the hem, beautifully complements this breathtakingly romantic dress. Match an illusion wedding dress with the right bridal accessories and trust us, you're onto a winner. Chantelle's dress seamlessly harmonised with both her chosen theme and the wedding venue, exemplifying the innate power of a truly exceptional wedding gown.

Barn wedding venues exude warmth and cosiness as well as luxury and style.

We have two favourite moments of the day. Walking out of the wedding barn to “I Believe In a Thing Called Love - The Darkness” with hands in the air and laughing in a huge belly aching way. And the second, our private dance in the fairy lights of the barn while our guests dance the night away.
