Katie & Dean ~ A Classy Affair!

Kicking off the real weddings feature is a very special wedding to me, it’s only my youngest sisters and my now brother in law, so to say it was a special wedding is an understatement.

One of my favourite venues, some of my favourite suppliers, a very photogenic couple and a lovely wedding style to work with, I was smiling ALOT when discussing with Katie what she wanted the venue to look like.

I was able to show off one of my favourite styles for chair covers of the moment, stunning organza wraps with a champagne sash styled in a rosette style tie at the back. Love it and love the colours used. The tables were styled using beautiful white hydrangeas dressed into stunning antique vases and containers, gorgeous trinket boxes, lovely glassware and ornate picture frames made for a simple yet elegant style oozing with class.

Every element of the styling worked perfectly with the bridal party style and the overall wedding feel. A favourite of ours to start off what is sure to be a fab feature for our blog, we have styled some gorgeous weddings over the years and now it’s going to be wonderful that all you lovely lot will be able to check them out and read how our couples feel on their special day.

Enjoy the read in Katie and Dean’s own words about their perfect day <3

Our day was everything we hoped it would be and more. We knew exactly how we wanted it to look and the feel for the day so finding a venue was pretty simple. The most important part of my wedding day was to be married in a church it was my way of sharing our special day with loved ones that are no longer with us. Our ceremony took place at the beautiful Leicester Cathedral. It was the perfect start to our city wedding. After the ceremony we took the short walk with our guests to The City Rooms. It was a clear choice for us the ballroom is stunning and we loved being in the heart of the city.

I do love what I do and the reason I do it, so thought it was about time that I shared something very special (well it is for me anyway!) I have a lot of friends in this industry and we all know how hard it can be at times, there is someone very special to me that keeps me going and makes me smile even more when they tell me how much they love something I have made, or styled, that would be Eve, well actually Eve Lily.

At the start of the year I decided to do a photo shoot of me and my daughter in a little tongue in cheek Audrey style. This was supposed to be a 30 minute mini shoot, so I could involve Eve in what I do and show what Eve Lily is all about at the same time. This didn’t quite pan out as Eve as always just got into the spirit of things and took over, with a little encouragement from Sarah and so the timings went to pot. It was such a fun shoot and we really did get in the spirit of it all.
