Real Weddings – A Family Celebration

A Family Celebration – Short Wedding Dress with Sleeves

We received absolutely stunning images from Debbie and Richards wedding last week and couldn’t wait to share. Their day was all about love and family and although it rained, the sun shone through in the end. Debbie looked absolutely stunning in her short wedding dress with sleeves.  The couple married on Friday at Houchin’s wedding venue in Colchester, Essex. This is a beautiful venue that is so versatile with traditional farm buildings converted with a modern twist.  Their wedding was photographed by Kerrie Mitchell Photography.

I knew I was after a tea dress as it fitted our style of dress and it was quirky.”

It was a wonderful family moment as Debbie’s son walked her down the aisle and her daughter was bridesmaid. Richard wore a bright shirt, a blue three piece suit and kept his look casual without a tie. Debbie wore her hair down with an exquisite crystal hair clip accessory. She kept her accessories classic and wore a pair of elegant 1950s style heeled Mary Jane’s with a beautiful detailed flower motif.

 “It was all about love family and celebration with those who mean the world to us.” 

 In choosing her dress, Debbie already knew she wanted a short vintage style wedding dress. So she visited Cutting Edge Brides for a one to one consultation where she could relax and try on as many dresses as she wanted. The dress she chose fitted like a glove and she knew it was the ‘one’. The couple had rain on their wedding day and this is where a short wedding dress with sleeves comes into its own. With changeable weather, sleeves are a must in a short wedding gown.

“My dress received some completely amazing comments. I felt wonderful in it”

 The couple chose beautiful country style flowers for their day, with roses and lots of foliage featuring in the brides bouquet. The button holes were a single rose which was with keeping with the relaxed vibe that the couple were aiming for. This is one of the best reason for wearing a vintage style wedding dress because it fits in with any theme and detail on your wedding day.
