Dan wore his grandfather’s gold pocket watch in his waistcoat, with a new pair of gold Aspinal of London cufflinks engraved with his initials. The groomsmen and fathers wore two-piece dinner suits with bow ties from Dobell, and braces attached. The bride tribe were dressed in sage green, floor-length, multi-way dresses, which they wore in a Grecian style. “My bridesmaids all ranged in dress size, so I needed to find a style that made them all feel comfortable,” Emily explains. WORDS OF WISDOM Having celebrated their love with the day of their dreams Emily and Dan have shared with us some of their top wedding planning tips: “Spreadsheets are your best friends! They’re great for keeping track of your spend and budget, as well as items that need ordering or making. On the day, be sure to enjoy every single second. You’ve spent months or even years planning, and now it’s time to make the most of it all. Factor in time for the two of you throughout the day. You could ask your wedding planner or master of ceremonies to take you away just to be alone together for five minutes.” 42
