Some Kind Of Wonderful……Part 1

There is something really free spirited and unbelievably joyful about the wedding of Richard and Daisy, I can’t put my finger on it exactly to be truthful so I guess it is a mixture of the couples care free attitude and their ability to pull together such a beautiful Big Day whilst not conforming to trends, ideals or specific traditions…..

Put that easy breezy beauty with some breathtaking photography by Binky Nixon and what do you get?

Some Kind Of Wonderful.

Enjoy lovelies.

Comfortable Perfection

I did my own make-up, I felt more comfortable doing it myself. My hair was put up loosely by my hairdresser Andrew Barnett and I had fresh flowers clipped in.

A Vintage Bow

My shoes were nude coloured simple leather courts from Dune, they had a 3inch heel and vintage bow detailing to the back.

Chandeliers and Silk

For jewellery I wore a pair of chandelier earrings my sisters bought me a while ago for my birthday. I also wore a silk single tier cathedral length veil.

Love In Advance

My dress was bought at Monsoon; it was in the sale and only cost me £60! I bought it at least 6months before Richie even asked me to marry him, because I loved it so much.  

Peaches And Tulle

We didn’t have a colour theme which made things easier I think. My bridesmaids chose their dresses, the older four ended up all liking the same dress which was again, in the sale at Monsoon (I’m not a tight arse I promise, it’s what they all wanted!) It had a heavily embellished peach coloured bodice and a floaty grey tulle skirt. The little bridesmaids chose a cream coloured vintage style dress.

Further High Street Chic

The groomsmen hired their outfits from Debenhams, a grey 3-piece. Richie wore his own shirt though, a blue and white floral number from French Connection.

Um, just how flawless is the bride? Just goes to show you don’t need to spend a fortune to look a million dollars.

Come back tomorrow for all the divine reception details and super cute couple shots…. 😉

Big Wonderful Love

  1. The best wedding you’ve featured. The couple look so happy just to be getting married and I love the simplicity and that they weren’t bothered about colour schemes and all the fluff!

  2. I love the hair I love shoes I love the dress I love the bridesmaids dresses I love the groom’s shirt I love it ALL!!!

  3. This is such a beautiful and inspiring wedding, its a breath of fresh air to hear of brides forgetting about all the fluff and just enjoying the day for what its supposed to be about, becoming husband and wife!!

    I’m so jealous of her wedding dress bargain as well!

  4. Really, really, really, reeeeealllly love this wedding! Everyone looks so happy and what a naturally beautiful bride. I’m also jealous of her dress bargains and very much lusting after those shoes……

  5. Just went online to Dune to find those shoes, but can’t find them and I NEEEEEED them! If any one finds them pleeeeease tell me!

    ps beautiful bride and bridesmaids…

  6. I love her hair- I’ve got a big brown fringe too and although it’s not very ‘bridal’, I think she looks absolutely gorgeous. Vintage with edge! Really one of the nicest weddings you’ve featured. Looking forward to part 2!

  7. Wow, this wedding is so gorgeous and relaxed. I love the bride’s hair. It’s great to see hairstyles with a fringe. It has inspired me to rock a fringe for my big day!

  8. I have those shoes in Black from Dune. They had the black and the white eons ago, a couple of years maybe. They usually have them in the sale in white in most sizes – I got my black one’s for £47

  9. That is one confident bride – I would never have such a beautiful bridesmaid.
    Oh dear, I dont think that makes me a very good person.

  10. I am wearing a Monsoon wedding dress too, though mine wasn’t as much of a bargain (£200)! All looks lovely x

  11. A kindred spirit! My bridesmaids are all in gorgeous dresses that I bought in the Monsoon sale – £80 down to £25.50! It’s a great way to avoid what we call “wedding tax” – being charged double for something simply because it relates to a wedding!

  12. Ah…this is my wedding and I’m so glad you all like it, it is such a cliche but it really was the happiest day of my life (have you seen my gorgeous husband!)
    Thank you all so much for your lovely comments, what girl power, but Binky Nixon really is a photographic Marvel!
    Rachel, the bridesmaids with me in the most photo’s were my gorgeous sisters Esme and Rose…they are just too lovely aren’t they!
    Erin, my veil was made by a lady I found on Ebay.
    Wishing you all blessings for your big days
    Daisy x

  13. Love this! What a gorgeous bride and yes, am also v.envious of your bargainous dress find!! BM dresses really lovely and original looking. Am having bm dress nightmares and am now vowing to watch the Monsoon sale like a hawk in the run up to the big day. Love the groom’s shirt too, so original!
