Inspiration

Bride Emily is a professional ballet dancer currently performing in The Phantom of the Opera, and Groom Dayle is a singer/actor who’s 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.

What Made Our Day Uniquee

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’s 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!

Pronovias Wedding Dress

I 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. To see more RMW Brides wearing Pronovias wedding dresses search our archives.
