Our Wedding: Flowers

I had a lot of fun picking out all the flowers for the wedding. My bouquet and the bridemaids bouquet were the only ones we had made professionally. The rest of the flowers in the church and at the reception my mum made herself in a flower frenzy the night before the wedding. We probably did save money but I’m not sure my mum would agree the stress was worth it!

I would love to tell you all the flowers that were in my bouquet but to be honest I can’t remember! I asked for deep reds and dusky whites and wild flowers. I also gave the florist a strip of blue velvet fabric from my coat which she wrapped around the stems and pinned in place with pearl pins.

I asked for blue anemones for the bridesmaids bouquets. The florist was reluctant to use them as they tend to droop within a few hours of being out of water but I have to say these stayed beautiful for the whole day and looked amazing.

I feel very lucky to have married the most handsome and caring husband any woman could wish for.

Our Wedding: The Coat

I think I enjoyed wearing my coat as much as I enjoyed wearing my dress. At what other time are you going to get the opportunity to wear floor length blue velvet? My mother-in-law did an amazing job on the coat and I’ve heard velvet is a very tricky fabric to work with. We both had great fun going to all the fabric shops in Berwick Street in London to choose the velvet and silk for the coat. The plan is to snip the train off the coat so I can use it for special occasions. That will leave quite a lot of velvet to make something out of. What should I do with it do you think? Any suggestions?

 

Our Wedding: Hair

I found an advert in a wedding magazine where the model had just the hair I was looking for – semi-formal but romantic and wavy (I have naturally straight hair) and that’s what I went for. The vintage bridal headpiece that I have blogged about previously and I wasn’t sure what to do with became the decoration in my hair. We carefully unclipped the wax flowers from the wiring and entwined them into my hair.

Our Wedding: Boots

The Victorian boots I bought were really scuffed so I scoured the internet to find London’s best cobbler (no easy task). I went to one of those recommended and he examined my boots and then told me that the leather itself had discoloured and the only way to get them white or cream was to paint over them! It seemed obscene to me to paint over 100 year old leather so I went to another cobblers to get a second opinion. It happened to be just around the corner from where I was living at the time and I’d read that they mended shoes sent to them by the major fashion houses. They took my boots promising to clean them but with no guarantee as to how they’d turn out. A nerve-tingling week later I went to collect them and hurrah they were like new!

They were one of my favourite things to wear at the wedding (and super comfortable) and I was so glad we managed to resurrect these beautiful boots.
