PHOTOGRAPHY: Lauren Campbell. Drawn to her photography given the pure nature of her style. Candid and natural. Lauren managed to capture not only our beautiful wedding but us as people. Our personalities really shone through in the images.

BRIDE’S DRESS: French designer 'Balensi'. Purchased from Gio Moretti located on Via Della Spiga, Milano (one of my favourite boutiques on my favourite street) Luxury bohemian. Classic and elegant. Relaxed yet super chic. 

BRIDE’S SHOES: Gucci platforms 

BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES: Zimmermann. Dusty peach colour in silk with front split. Formal yet relaxed. 

BRIDESMAID’S SHOES: Giambattista Valli. Nude stilettos with 3 straps across the front. 

 WEDDING RINGS: Made by Fedeli jewellers. (my uncles.) Nick's band is white gold and my band is rose gold with alternating diamonds and black diamonds. My engagement rings are two eternity bands with diamond claw setting around each band.

GROOMSMEN ATTIRE:  Zimma tailors. Simple and classic. Good quality navy blue cotton with a bevy blue lining. 

HAIR: All out and wavy. How I always wear it. 

MAKEUP: Very natural. I didn't want to look like I had any makeup on at all. 

STATIONERY/INVITATIONS:  Invitations were made by "The Distillery". Very classic. Simple colour palette. Great quality paper. Beautiful personalised calligraphy. Invitations really set the scene for the wedding. 

FAVORS/BONBONNIERE: bomboniere were made my "Cakes by Cliff". Cliff created 4 completely unique chocolates designed in different shapes to represent jewels. He also created a marble like effect throughout the chocolate. They were beautifully packaged with clear tops so they really stood out. 

FLOWERS & BOUQUETS: I absolutely love natives so that's what I had decided on combined with hydrangeas. I chose these flowers as I wanted to created a mystical rainforest in the room and these worked best to achieve the look. Bouquets for bridesmaids colour wise really worked with their dresses. The colour palette for all flowers were soft pastels and lots of dusty greenery. The flowers were magic. 

VIDEOGRAPHY: Our short film really captured the day as a whole. We wanted a film that reflected us and the love that we shared on the day. It was natural and candid. Absolute overall perfection. 

PREPARATION: I was lucky enough to enjoy getting ready in the bridal salon provided on the estate. I got ready with my bridesmaids and my mother. We enjoyed breakfast and champagne. It was definitely worth having some place beautiful to get ready in. 

CEREMONY DÉCOR/ RECEPTION DÉCOR: An upmarket enchanted forest with a hint of Italian elegance. 

WEDDING PLANNER/ STYLIST: The owner, Rosie was essentially my wedding planner. She was brilliant. She assisted me with absolutely every single detail of the wedding and executed it nearly to perfection. 

CAKE: A 4 tire lime coconut naked cake with cascading flowers 

WEDDING SONGS: Ceremony song was "dream a little dream" by Nina Simone and first dance was a cover of the old school classic "so into you" featuring Ashanti. 

ENTERTAINMENT: We had Master Blaster for our wedding band. They were amazing! They played songs throughout the entire reception and after the dinner my brother who is a DJ got on the decks. My brother chose the playlist and pretty much nailed it. He played primarily current hip hop/trap/rap/rnb

FOOD & BEVERAGES: We had a sit down dinner consisting of 3 courses plus the wedding cake. We had vodka for all the tables and for wine we did beautiful Italian wines. A soave for white and a valpolicella for red. Pre dinner drinks consisted of prosecco and the canapés were served on large logs of wood. Antipasti, fresh oysters etc

HONEYMOON: Italy 

GIFT REGISTRY: A Wishing well

CELEBRANT: Victoria Eustace. She was lovely and really understood what we wanted out of our ceremony. 

ANY OTHER SPECIAL DETAILS:

SOURCES OF INSPIRATION: My wedding planner was quite helpful in recommending ideas and contacts. I knew in my head exactly what I wanted so I drew inspiration from Pinterest and created mood boards. I found this very helpful in the process.

A MEMORABLE MOMENT: There was not one memorable moment but the entire day was. From the speeches, to the food, to the first dance, to the singing waiters to my husbands speech. It was a magical day. 

ONE THING I WISH I KNEW BEFORE I STARTED MY WEDDING PLANS… Nothing really. It was all smooth sailing and everything went to plan. It was a perfect day for sure. 

IF I COULD GIVE OTHER BRIDES TO BE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE… Don't stress. Enjoy every single moment because it goes by so fast. Have fun!
