The sun is out, the garden party marquee wedding is prepped and the bridal party are looking fierce in navy bridesmaid dresses and lace gowns. What more can you ask for on your wedding day?

What Made Our Day Unique

With our wedding being held at my family home, we feel this added a personal touch to our day. It gave the guests a glimpse of where I grew up and where Will and I have enjoyed time with family, making memories and spending weekends in the countryside over the years. With music being such a big part of our lives, we had a big focus on live music and entertainment. From the Choir and String Quartet in the church to a jazz singer, live band with Sax and DJ late into the night.

Navy Bridesmaid Dresses

We've said it once and we'll say it again, a bevvy of beauties in navy bridesmaid dresses is such a heavenly choice for your best girls. Suiting all skin tones and silhouettes as well as wedding seasons and colour schemes. Bride Jessica chose the gorgeous ASOS, Maya, sequin and satin navy bridesmaid dresses for her ladies and we love them. Together they are #squadgoals and ticking serious bridesmaid trend boxes.

Garden Party Style

We wanted our wedding to be personal to us, with a marquee being a blank canvas we wanted the style and day to reflect us. We were set on a summer wedding, with lots of greenery, with the flowers being unstructured, ethereal, and wildflower. We wanted the colour palette to be quite neutral, with blush, whites and greens. With the location of my family home is set in the countryside, we wanted it to have a classic English summer vibe. Will designed the whole marquee layout, and helped design all our stationery too!!
