Wow! This wedding will leave you absolutely speechless! Courtney's Emma Beaumont tulle princess wedding dress is something we'll be talking about for a while. Having been a bridesmaid 7 times and working in weddings and events for over 20 years, Courtney had dreamed of her wedding day, which totally exceeded all her expectations. The couple wanted music to be essential on their day with a Diana Ross set, the cast members from Motown The Musical and a 6-piece band! Set at, Recommended venue, Old Gore Barn at Yard Space, this wedding is simply stunning.

Try not to get hung up on tradition or other people's opinions - do it how you want to do it.
 Try and get all the little final bits done the week before the wedding so you can enjoy the build-up. I enlisted the help of a good friend from work to be there throughout the day to be the point of contact for all the suppliers and ensure everything looked how it should and happened when it should - this was a godsend and allowed me to completely relax and enjoy the day.

Tulle Princess Wedding Dress

Courtney & Dan used local suppliers as there are so many fantastic ones in the Cotswolds! Their photographer, videographer, cake maker, florist and DJ are all based around the area - even their guest book and favours were Cotswold-made! Thanks to Rock My Wedding and our real wedding inspiration, Courtney had found Emma Beaumont a few years before and knew she wanted one of her dresses. Courtney decided on a stunning tulle princess wedding dress. In terms of styling, they kept it simple. Used across the bridal party, stationery and tables, the navy and mustard colour scheme is perfect. The brief for the flowers was a Cotswold meadow, which looks incredible with lots of gorgeous foliage in the bouquets and the bud vases on the tables. 

Food & Entertainment

Food and entertainment were big factors for the wedding as the couple wanted their guests to have the best time. Fun and relaxation were the order of the day. From their favourite movie theme tunes playing as guests arrived and the surprise, Diana Ross set during dinner, to the cast of Motown The Musical, to finishing with a party set from the 6-piece Aston Band. The surprise wedding reading performed by Courtney's brother was a highlight! He started to recite the lyrics of ‘I Say a Little Prayer’ before pulling out a pair of lobster claws and waving and everyone joined in. If you've seen the movie, 'My Best Friend's Wedding', this might be familiar to you! The cake mirrored the theme with lots of texture and looks almost too beautiful to eat!

We're obsessed with the party vibes at this wedding! 

It sounds cheesy but literally, every minute was incredible! If I had to narrow my favourite moments down, they are seeing Dan and walking down the aisle
 to him. Dan's speech was amazing and so was putting my slippers on and having a cuppa with a slice of wedding cake after our first dance!
