Words of wisdom from the beautiful bride Lizzie Seman.
Our wedding theme was a classic style wedding with blush pink and white Peonies. I love Lace and pearls and also wanted to incorporate them into the wedding day.
The wedding took place on 27th of March 2015 at Stock brook golf club in Essex. We travelled around Essex and Kent looking at a number of different venues, but we loved the warm feeling we got once we walked through the doors at Stock brook Golf Club.
The wedding took us fifteen months to plan and millions of lists!!! I found the most stressful part was making sure you got everything done within your normal working day. “People would not believe how long it takes to plan a wedding”.
My dress was by Madeline Gardiner New York. On the day I chose Hair by Victoria Jarrett and make up by Sian Sayer to create the look I was looking for. I chose ‘Designer Flowers’ to create the bouquets and venue flowers. I had looked at lots of images before I went to meet ‘Designer flowers’ at their studio.
With a little help I knew I wanted blush peonies for the Bridal bouquet finished off with ivory pearls and French lace. For the bridesmaids I chose ivory hydrangea bouquets. For the top table I chose a mixture of blush pink roses, hydrangeas and peonies which I loved. The stationery was by Lucy Lolas, and all the pictures below are from our photographer Derek Anson which I loved.
Little things made our wedding truly special like saying our vows to each other in front of all our friends and family. Also one of my best friends surprised me with a touching speech to me and Ben written by my sister and brother-in-law, who are in Australia and couldn’t make the wedding, I also made personalised wine charms for all the lady guests, which seemed to go down well.
To all the new brides and grooms out there who might be reading this, my peace of advice would be, not stress about the little things before the wedding because everything is perfect on the day and it will be the best day of your lives. xxxx
