Your Hampshire and Dorset Wedding - September/October 2023 (Issue 100)

My beautiful bridesmaids wore ice-blue dresses with lace fronts and cowl backs. We loved our white and blue cake, which consisted of chocolate, Bakewell and lemon flavours. White and blue hydrangeas made up our flower arrangements. I remember feeling emotional and excited after getting ready. We had to postpone our original date due to Covid and tied the knot while I was six months pregnant so, I couldn’t wear my original wedding gown. I picked a lace dress to accommodate a growing bump! Byron wanted an old country house with history while I was after a modern and contemporary look; Balmer Lawn Hotel has a perfect mixture of both! 32
