The Bride wore a beautiful beaded dress with veil by Lusan Mandongus . She teamed this with a gorgeous pair of sparkly Jimmy Choos. Poppy’s Weddings designed the floral arrangements, including the bouquets. These included bold yellow sunflowers, white roses and freesias, gypsophila and a splash of green with eucalyptus and ferns.
The bride got ready at her home where she was helped by her bridesmaids. The Maid of Honour who was a qualified make-up artist and did the bride’s make-up for her. Gemma at the Events Studio created the beautiful updo. A pretty pearl hairpiece accessorised.
The Bride arrived for her Rockbeare Manor wedding with her father in a gorgeous powder blue 1959 Cadillac.
A Heartfelt Rockbeare Manor Wedding
The ceremony took place in the drawing-room, looking out over the resplendent gardens. A family friend made the rings for the Bride and Groom to exchange with each other.
After the ceremony, the couple exited to a traditional sword salute. Then it was a few formal portraits of the bridal party before the couple sneaked off for their own portraits. In the meanwhile, the naval contingent changed into their military evening attire.
Heaven Scent Springtime Florals
The couple took time out to enjoy a few moments to themselves. Enjoying the carpet of bluebells that were out. As well as the meadow of wildflowers that led down to the lake.
The table plan reflected the couple’s love of travel. A map of the world with each table pinned to the map by luggage tags with guests names. Farrah’s tinned travel sweets were at each place setting as wedding favours for guests. Military traditions continued with Port to toast speeches.
Upbeat Evening Entertainment
The evening kicked off with another military tradition. The Bride and groom cut the cake using the Groom’s sword. The talented Cherry Blossom Cakes made the stunning 3 tier-cake with yellow sunflowers. Then they enjoyed their first dance together. Before guests hit the dancefloor to join them in partying the night away with Mafia 4.
