An English Wedding with Afternoon Tea

  • This may be the wedding of Jasmine, a Buying Assistant for any DIY retailer, and Tom, who's an Accountant. They celebrated their marriage around 25 May 2019 inside a church ceremony and then a reception in Hampshire.

    Jasmine's dream of the dress, exquisitely cut having a full, ballgown skirt and added sparkle from the vintage belt, was by, and chosen at FeelTimes.

    "I wore shoes in silver. Marrying someone who's 6ft 4, and just being 5ft 1, I needed a shoe with height to raise me during the day. Luckily they were comfortable, but Tom had bought me a support pair of trainers personalized with my new married name 'Mrs. James', for that evening so I could dance the night time away."

    "I had envisaged myself inside a classic and timeless style dress, and I didn’t want lace or anything too fussy. On reflection, it had been such an excellent suggestion from Kelly, as I was quite stubborn in wanting something plain, but this little bit of sparkle looks amazing in photos."

    The lavender bridesmaid dresses were a bargain of the find, with 70% off within the sale, that they wore with shoes, as well as in their braided hair, gold leaf pins.

    The couple first met at college, aged 17, and through happy coincidence, the date of the wedding was the 10th anniversary of this first meeting. Tom had proposed to Jasmine near the Taj Mahal, whilst on holiday 2 yrs before the wedding.

    After the ceremony, the newly married couple drove themselves to Houghton Lodge and enjoyed some quiet time together within the beautiful walled garden. Click

    "Our wedding was a complete mismatch of our favorite things. We opted to select things we loved, instead of religiously sticking with a particular theme. I suppose our theme became a traditional English country wedding with the greenery and country flowers used, with Indian references from your engagement location."

    Tom and the groomsmen looked smart in their classic morning suits with double-breasted waistcoats Tom wore a pale blue tie having a bee print, and also the groomsmen were gifted pink elephant print ties, also from.

    Favors were mini bottles of Bombay Sapphire gin, and alongside lemonade, tonic water, and elderflower cordial, they were used for toasting.

    "We also provided every guest having a wedding day newspaper developed by Tom himself, that was a great talking point towards the day. We included many photos of people and all our guests on these phones look through and revel in the memories of the past 10 years of people being together."

    As the sun's rays set within the elegant Gothic rooftop of Houghton Lodge, drinks were enjoyed outside through the river, before Jasmine and Tom stepped out for his or her first married dance together, to My Love, by Westlife.

    "We've both said our favorite part of our big day was everyone we love uniting to celebrate us. It sounds strange, however for two people who usually stand in the background it had been very surreal to become the center of attention. We couldn't happen to be more overwhelmed with everyone being there using their love and kindness. It helped to produce a relaxed atmosphere for the day. We will cherish the whole day forever."

    Words of Wedded Wisdom

    "We were creative in how we decided to decorate things,s allowing us to invest much less than budgeted. I'm also extremely happy with our thriftiness. It also allowed us to include a lot of people in the lead-up to our day, which was extremely important for all of us. It is nice to determine guests boasting with other guests about how exactly they helped us pull everything together, knowing it had been a team effort."
