Your East Midlands Wedding - February/March 2024 (Issue 60)

The tables had gold charger plates along with sage green napkins, table runners and candles dotted around the flower arrangements. Ryan hired a dark grey tweed suit from Andrew J Musson Ltd with a matching waistcoat, a tie and pocket square that matched the bridesmaids’ dresses. The bridesmaids’ wore made-to-order multiway dresses from Lá Closet Dé Chánel in a dark sage green. I always wanted my best girls to wear the same colour but feel comfortable wearing a style however they wanted. Each bridesmaid had gypsophlia in their hair. We wanted to include the flowers on our bake by Cake & Thistle. We chose a buttercream design with gold flecks running down the front and the flowers tumbling down almost like a waterfall effect. My dress was from Belle & Bouquet by the designer Maggie Sottero. As soon as I tried the gown on, I knew it was the one! It had a beautifully beaded bodice and a satin organza skirt with buttons leading all the way down the train. The ceremony flowers were used on the top table, and there was a beautiful long and low arrangement with champagne-coloured roses, white peonies, rosemary, gypsophila, eucalyptus and trailing greenery – our florist did a fantastic job! 38
