Laid Back Bristol Wedding with a yellow wedding dress held at The Mansion House

Laid Back Bristol Wedding with Epic Bridal Style

We love it when a couple buck a couple of the obvious wedding traditions but non more so than an alternative-to-white wedding dress. Charlotte’s choice; a sunshine yellow Outline dress and statement shoes, made our heart sing!

Charlotte and Jack held their laid back May wedding at The Mansion House in Bristol, captured beautifully by our very own Mr & Mrs Unique supplier Kate Jackson Photography!

Over to the couple to tell us more about their day…

Charlotte & Jack…

How did you meet and get engaged?

We met on Guardian Soulmates (old school online dating, before Tinder!) in Autumn 2012 – he took me to a romantic pub in Croydon for our first date and watched Sky Sports over my shoulder, obviously things improved after that.

We had our little girl in 2017 and got engaged in August 2018 when she was six months old. He took us on a walk in our local cemetery (trust me it’s beautiful) and asked me; ‘what do you want to drink with your tea tonight?’. I thought it was a bit odd but I replied ‘maybe I’ll have a G&T or something?’ to which he said ‘well would you like some champagne, and to marry me?’

Of course I said yes but he was so nervous he hadn’t

Moroccan Inspired, DIY Wedding at Chelvey Court

What a wedding to share with you on Valentine’s Day!

When we heard that Indi & Pete had named their celebrations their ‘phatty wedding’ we knew it would be a corker, and it didn’t disappoint! Theirs was a weekend full of fun, colour and community, all centered around a pair of amazing Moroccan tents supplied by our very own Mr & Mrs Unique supplier The Fantastical Tent Company!

Over to the couple to tell us more about their day…

Indi & Pete…

How did you meet?

We met when Pete was at university and I was visiting a mutual friend. We became clubbing/partying buddies as a group and hung out as friends for a couple of years, before randomly deciding to go India together, where we spent 24/7 with each other. It was only on our return when we missed each other did we start inadvertently dating until we finally got together (apparently it was obvious to friends months before!).

How did you get engaged?

We went back to India about 3 years later and Pete lead me into the ocean, got down on one knee and proposed before nearly getting swept away by a wave! Luckily I said yes as the ‘Delhi Belly’ I thought I had at the time was

Was there an overall theme to your day?

The idea behind our wedding was for guest to feel like they were at a family party with good food, good wine and good music. We wanted the atmosphere to be relaxed and fun.

How would you describe your day?

Our day was about celebrating our relationship with our family and friends. The day was full of laughter, tears of joy and euphoric dancing.

How long were you planning it for, and what was the best bit?

After being together for 13 years, we wanted to get married as soon as possible so we got married a year after getting engaged. We really enjoyed

How did you meet?

Both of us come from Somerset, but weirdly we didn’t meet there. We actually met at Italia Conti Drama School, where we both trained as actors. 

How did you get engaged?

We got engaged on a trip to Loch Awe, in Scotland. Sonnie had booked the holiday, so I had the perfect cover. It was pouring with rain during a trek up to Avich waterfall and I almost delayed, because it was so stormy, but the waterfall is stunning and I went for it. As I went down on one knee the rain stopped and the sun came out. Magic!

Was there an overall theme to your day?

We played with ideas around Shakespeare’s plays and locations. All the tables were locations and all the guests had their own character. Our favourite was casting our 1yr old Nephew as Falstaff, a belching drunkard. 

Everything else was set around A Midsummer Night’s Dream. We tried as much as possible

An intimate Devon elopement… Amy & Will’s perfect wedding at Millbrook Estate

Intimate Elopement at Millbrook Estate…

Have you ever considered dropping the big wedding plans and perhaps elope instead? There are obviously those who would like to throw a big blow-out wedding surrounded by family and friends; but there is also a growing number of couples that would like to hold a small intimate wedding with just a few of their nearest and dearest, or even a romanic ceremony for just two.

Either way, the decision of how you get married should be down to the you. There are many reasons why you may consider to elope… romance, anxiety, family issues or maybe budget, but the end result is still the same; that you become legal partners and say those all important vows to one another.

Today we share the gorgeous elopement of Amy and Will who decided to have a very personal ceremony with just the two of them…

How did the couple find you?

Strangely, a wedding fair. I say “strangely” as I never do wedding fairs. Maybe I should do more? They were initially looking for a photographer to cover a wedding party they were throwing for a few days after their elopement. When they mentioned “elopement” I asked if they had a photographer for that. They hadn’t yet, and the rest is history.
