Caroline and Angus - The Photos!

I love this photo of all the maids helping Caroline into her underskirts, it's exactly how it should be!

Caroline's birdcage veil made from the fabric of her dress as something new, the veiling from my own wedding veil as something borrowed and a vintage 1950's brooch as something old and blue.

All three bridesmaids dresses together. We made Libby the youngest of the bridesmaids dress too with turquoise edging. 

The very first glitter bags were commissioned by Caroline to match her shoes for herself and the bridesmaids.

If someone said this was Audrey Hepburn I would totally believe them, but this is our bride with definite old Hollywood star elegance. 

Caroline's Mum and ladies from the church made these beautiful matching Liberty print flower holders. These details make such an impact all together. 

All of the dresses had a bow at the back, Caroline's dress had a huge matching bow, the bridesmaids had detachable bows and Libby the youngest has a pink glitter bow for the back of her dress.

I made the veil after a few tries at getting the bow shape just right so that it kept the elegant style of the dress without it becoming distracting. A long flat single pleat bow was a success. 

The Kurt Geiger 'Anna' shoes will always be my favourite style and shape for a long time, they have the heel height and shape, pointed toe and overall design of any shoe. I wish they would bring them back! 

Flower petal Confetti makes the best photos and I love that all the guests wore bright colours. Helen (Caroline's Mum) looked fabulous in her rich blue purple and violet outfit.

Carrot, Guinness and Elderflower cup cakes with sugar sweet peas.

Bright fabric flowers made at the Hen Party workshop taught by Anna. 

At last I can share the amazing photos from Caroline and Angus's wedding shot by the fabulous Assassynation.
There were hundreds of wow factor photos to choose from and I have whittled it down to this handful of my favourites. It looks like it was an incredible day, full of colour and when you listen to the soundtrack it gets even cooler.
Caroline really was a perfect bride in a very non 'perfect bride' way. A joy to work with such a smiley lady and I will very much miss the twirling round the studio and all the excitedness. And yes she is the spitting image of Audrey Hepburn in looks and demeanour which was like Funny Face in real life :)

Thank you to Carloline and her super lovely maids Clare, Ellen and Libby and to Helen for finding me in the first place.

Congratulations to Caroline and Angus wishing them a Very Happy First Christmas as a wedded pair! xxx
