On the blog today we have the wedding of Samantha and Keith. This is a real treat for anyone who loves a theatrical style wedding.
Samantha and Keith got married on 9th April 2016 at the rather trendy Houchins Barn. This is a relatively new venue on the block but I have heard nothing but positive feedback about it.
When Samantha first came into the boutique, she explained to me that she is an interior designer and has her own design company (Morph Designs Ltd). So she was looking for a dress that was something a little different from the normal and as soon as she mentioned the words "Helena Bonham Carter style" I knew there was only one designer for her. The one and only Ian Stuart.
Samantha fell in love with the Pracatan dress, and as one of my all time favourite dresses I was truly jealous she got to wear it! I think the only way to describe this dress to someone is "think Carrie Bradshaw - Sex in the City". Ever the designer, Samantha wanted a few custom changes to the dress which were to remove the sparkle detail off the corset bodice and also to have a corset tie back put in. It was really important to Samantha that she could have different accessories that she could change throughout the day. In the end, she had 2 different boleros, a veil and a stunning hat (the hat was made by the same lady who helped Vivienne Westwood with the costume design for Tim Burtons "Alice in Wonderland").
Keeping with the Vivienne Westwood theme, Samantha had some gorgeous Vivienne Westwood shoes.
The photographer for the day was Jayne Heather, so a big thank you to her for her beautiful images.
Samantha's flowers were absolutely gorgeous. I love the mixture of blue and purples and they are such a stand out feature. Throughout the day Samantha and Keith put in some amazing touches to the make the venue look beautiful.
The wedding cake was made by Hunnybun Bakery and looks gorgeous, again the colour theme is stunning. The love letters were from My Big Fat Wedding and all the other props and screens were provided by Morph Designs.
The Grooms and Groomsmen had suits from Anthony's Menswear. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone looking for their suits. They have modern styles and are top quality in the cut and make. The guys that work there are really helpful too.
Samantha and Keith had a female choir preforming on the day which sounded amazing (I saw a video!).
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Wood, we loved being part of your special day xx
