There is just something about a traditional, ballroom wedding that is so timelessly beautiful. And yet, they are rarely shown off on the blogs these days. Well, I thought that it was about time we featured a ball room wedding that was ALL style, ALL gorgeousness. Photographed by London based photographer, Polly Alexandre, this wedding is pure luxury. Oh and the bride behind the affair just might be the most drop dead gorgeous bride I've ever seen.
The wedding was held at Hylands Hall in Essex, UK. The ridiculously lovely bride wore a Stuart Parvin gown (The Way We Were) and shoes by Emmy, along with a necklace by Stephanie Browne that just might be the most amazing accessory EVER. The bridesmaids wore bespokie gowns by Naomi Neoh. It's funny...even though the style behind this wedding is utterly luxurious and traditional, there are little touches of personality, of real style...sprinkled throughout the entire affair. LOVE that.
A little bit of background from the fabulous photographer, Polly...
Liz is an interior designer and drew together her contacts and skills to create a stunning, glamorous wedding with a timeless elegance. This wedding has quite a vintage feel - a kind of 40's or 50's glamour to it. Check out the gorgeous individual favours of vintage brooches for each female guest, whilst Jim, the Groom's reflected his musical background in the mini The Who badges as favours for the men. The ushers were all presented with vintage The Who signed LP's as a gift from the Groom and he later got up and joined in with the band.
Thank you so very much to Polly Alexandre for sending this beautiful affair our way. Make sure to check out Polly's blog for even more eye candy. Oh and a huge thank you to the lovely bride and groom for giving us a little window of inspiration into your day. We are obviously in love.
