Summer’s Dream

Summer in England can be unpredictable and 2019 saw one of the rainiest Junes in a long time.
However, this team of wedding creatives didn’t let a bit of water wash away their commitment to get together and just go for it!
With 4 Berta Privee gowns from Knutsford Wedding gallery ready and waiting and model Ella Ravenscroft travelling to be there, it was game on.
Mat and the Red Floral Architecture team arrived early with an abundance of summer blooms, including the most beautiful pink, full blown peonies and set to work dressing the huge, white iron gazebo.
Setting the trend, large gold geometric stands were used to display the florals, giving the whole scene a modern and luxurious feel.
Phoebe, from Flossy and Leigh Makeup Artist Company, lives for styling brides and the dresses and accessories were the inspiration for the looks she chose.
The hairstyles were largely contemporary, staying with the current trends of L.A. inspired waves and flowing locks to the London urban styled topknot and then straight sleek hair.
Makeup was all about flawless skin with glow and definition and smoky eyes to complement Ella’s famous brows!
Suzanne, from The Frostery, designed the most beautiful wedding cake.
Carefree astilbe, with it’s feathery flowers blushing in pink, were hand painted onto this four tier wedding cake.
Handmade sugar flowers were created to complement the backdrop of the abundant summer blooms.
The accessories were all handmade by Ann of Eleventh Heaven and designed to complement the different looks, gowns and current trends.
A rose gold star crown, an outrageous feathered headpiece, Swarovski hair clips and ultra sleek Swarovski chains were used for the hair and statement earrings to add drama.
Managing to mask the fact that there was only a 2 hour window of dry weather, Jeff Langhorne was behind the lens, capturing everything in his own unique, detailed way and Tony & Sara from Marry Me Films filmed everything with their usual skill and flair.
