When Becky won my recent competition, I was a bit taken aback that her date was the same as Shani's - who had booked with me some time previously! Isn't that just the way? Luckily it transpired that they were at completely different times of the day and the second one, Becky's, was really close by. So, after a very careful afternoon of planning, I decided I could do it.
But, what I love about my job is that people are so different and, as you will see both my lovely ladies wanted very different designs - which just made my time designing job incredibly stimulating and fulfilling. Here are a few pics that I took and a brief explanation of the concepts behind each of the weddings.
Shani and I hit it off as soon as she came to see me with her little daughter and her mum, Jane. Her venue was to be the gorgeous Wood Lane Countryside Centre which provides beautiful, natural surroundings and the choice of two Georgian Barns. Her dress was a Boho-style full length gown of ivory lace with crystal detail, while her adult bridesmaid would be wearing a stunning bright coral dress. Shani described the style of her bouquet as 'beautifully accidental' and asked me to include roses to match the coral colour - a real challenge. Luckily she left me a silk corsage from the Bridesmaids dress as a colour match!
