Today we bring you the story of Cathy & Brett's beautiful wedding which took place at the end of May this year at the very lovely City Hall here in sunny Sheffield.
When Cathy & I met at a wedding fayre last year, we talked briefly about how she wanted really pretty, soft, feminine pastels in whites, creams, apricots and blues. Once we met up for a consultation we also talked through her idea to use silver as an accent colour too. It didn't take long to choose a stylish bouquet of soft pastels, hand tied in a posy style using blue hydrangea, creamy, scented tuberose, white ranunculus, silvery brunia, white phlox and ‘Finess’ (apricot coloured) roses. We also decided to conceal the binding point with a band of silver satin ribbon with a lace overlay to pick up the 50's styling of her gorgeous ivory satin gown with a silk georgette beaded overskirt.
We also secretly decided to incorporate some really personal details in the shape of a really fab lego man in Cathy's sons buttonhole and a funky little union-jack guitar lapel pin badge into Brett's buttonhole. Just before the wedding, Cathy dropped these off with an extra little lapel pin which she asked to be put into her Dad's buttonhole. I have to admit that it made me shed a tear when I saw it and, indeed, it had the same effect on Cathy's Dad too, apparently!
Here are a few of her designs:-
Cathy sent me some of her 'official' photos too ...
Along with this rather touching and lovely email ....
