Wash Away The Blues.

This wedding really should come with a nudity warning… During the speeches Paul decided to reveal arguably slightly too much about himself. I’m not really sure why, but some things are best left unexplained 🙂

However, it’s not the flesh on display that’s referenced by the “blue” in the title to today’s wedding… It’s the casual and relaxed classic blue colour scheme, lifted with the occasional accent of green and yellow.

Gill and Paul married at St Maty the Virgin Church followed with a reception ot The Olde Bell in Hurley. Photography is by the super husband and wife team Jordan and Innes from Source Images.

Dress Number 2

My Wedding dress was by Suzanne Neville – Manhattan, with a Sassi Holford lace top. I knew it was “the one” when I realised I preferred it to the first dress I’d bought! (An expensive discovery).

A Sassi Veil

My veil was fab and was from the same company, Sassi Holford. I bought it from Ellie Sanderson in Beaconsfield.

Something Old

I wore my most-favourite-of-all-time (and a bit worn) Kurt Geiger pink satin peep toe shoes with a snakeskin mega heel – awesome! )

Genie In a Bottle

I had my hair put up with loose ringlets: A bit Christina Aguilera of old. My make-up was by Lauren Dunn from Channel 4’s 4Beautyteam. She was brilliant and gave me bright blue eyes.

Blue Blooms

I adored the flowers. We had blue hydrangea bouquets; blue agapanthas; delphinium and hydrangea. Wendy from Sonning Flowers in Reading was brilliant.

In The Navy

For our Groomsmen and we bought navy suits with blue ties and blue/lime green buttonholes.

Dressed To Kill

Paul wore a tailor made 3 piece suit from Dress2Kill. He looked trim and fab (until he got his red cabbage tattoo out in the speeches).

A Perfect Day

Jodan and Innes from Source Images were amazing and they were brilliant people too. The images are beyond my dreams and a perfect record of a perfect day.

A Bit Cheesy

We decided to have a cheese cake (Literally) with tiers of cheese from La Fromagerie in Marlyebone. PJ helped us choose it all and found the heart shaped camembert to it. We served the cheese with bottles of port to finish the night off.

Loud And Proud

We used a local DJ to provide entertainment. There was a strict decibel limit at the venue which we kept exceeding. This was an amusing near-disaster!

A Very First Dance

Our first dance was to Human by The Killers. It was the first song we ever danced to (aaahhh!!)

Boutique Chic

Jo and Andre De Jong, awesome event experts, themed the entrance and link room with quirky candles and boutique chic glass candelabras.

Up-lit with blue and green lights it absolutely transformed the ‘weaker’ area’s of the venue.

An Amazing Team

Alanna Mells at The Olde Bell is the best wedding organiser I can imagine and James and the team were amazing with the food and service.

Frankie Says Relax

My one piece of advice would be just try to be totally relaxed about the whole day, then nothing will disappoint you and you will have an absolute ball.

Gill says to relax, that might be easier said than done for some of us – but if you can manage it, it’ll really show though on the day and in your photos. Of course it helps to have a great photography team on standby and Source Images never fail to produce classic and timeless imagery with comfortable and natural looking portraits.

  1. Beautiful bride, beautiful day! I especially love the blue bouquet and the vintage looking pearl necklace. Where is this from please? I must know!! X

  2. Love the flowers and the lace jacket is amazing! Do you think I could get one made to go over my dress? lol I love the idea of having it on for the day then taken off for the night :o)

  3. I think it is a bracelet as she is not wearing a necklace.

    Gorgeous wedding – I am going the blue hydrangea route too 🙂

  4. I just ordered my Sassi Holford dress from Ellie Sanderson – how lovely is it there! Spent ages trying on both SH and Suzanne Neville, both such amazing designers!

    Looks like a gorgeous day – and that the speeches were highly entertaining!

  5. @Mimi and Olivia – I have the same question! I also originally thought it was a bracelet as I couldn’t see a necklace on Gill, but I thought it looked a bit long… After looking at the pictures in more detail, I *think* Gill wears a necklace in the evening once she has taken her lace top off…

    Either way, I also want to know where it’s from please!

  6. Beautiful wedding and fab make up! Where are the bridesmaid dresses from? I love the shade of blue and they have photographed really nicely.

  7. Ha Ha I noticed the lion!

    Beautiful W-day, so classic yet so pretty. And I am a huge hydrangea fan…especially the blue variety.

    Also I love how people notice the lion but no-one seems to have noticed the half naked man..

  8. We’re politely not commenting on the half naked man. Except – a man who matches his underwear to the colour scheme (watch for the blue waistband!): respect!

    Love her dress – and the lacy bolero even more. And the funky flash of blue eyeliner? WAY too cool for skool – just lovely.
