I swear, to my American ears, everything sounds a bit more lovely in a British accent. So my heart melted a little extra wax when the groom made his toast to his bride. But accents aside, there’s beauty bursting from everywhere thanks to help from Bow Occasions and every draped fold in the bride’s Monique Lhuillier gown. Just take a peek at this video from Wedding Film Studio and prepare your feet to be swept.
From the Bride… Oliver and I met almost 10 years ago when I was living in Dubai and he was on holiday visiting a mutual friend. To my good luck he decided to move there a few years later and it didn’t take long for us to become great friends and then something more. We got engaged in the summer of 2012 and moved to London shortly after.
Planning the wedding was a dream for me. With the help of my amazing parents and my wonderful in-laws, we were granted everything we could have hoped for for our big day. The first thing we decided on was the venue, Oli’s family home in Kent, Little Bedgebury Farm. We fell in love with the idea of having a chic country wedding at a place that felt personal to Oli’s family and mine. The rest was a breeze, from finding our wonderful photographer, Sophia Hanbury, to choosing Simon at Wedding Film Studio to document the day, to Oli’s favourite part of the planning process, deciding on the cake!
The day itself couldn’t have gone any better. The weather was perfect, we had our closest friends and family around us, and the setting was dreamier than I could have ever imagined. Simon did an incredible job in capturing all of this and more. Our families have watched the DVD of the wedding more times than they can count, and every time Oli and I watch it, we get transported back to the best day of our lives.
