An intimate wedding celebration and a Lace Bridal Gown

Anna and Jon married at Kings Chapel in Old Amersham in April 2021 and due to the restrictions in place they had to change their plans at the last minute. Their beautiful venue which is nestled in the old town was able to accommodate their needs with an outside reception. For many of the couples wedding suppliers, it was the first wedding of the year so was charged with lots of emotions.

Looking back we were the luckiest people! We had the most glorious sunny day (blue skies zero clouds) and the day was honestly magical. 

A Tea Length Wedding Dress

Anna already knew she wanted a tea length wedding dress so travelled from High Wycombe to visit our boutique in Bexley. Knowing she didn’t want to be restricted on her wedding day with a huge dress we set to work. She found the experience stress free and although the first few short wedding dresses weren’t what she was looking for she soon hit upon the one! Anna chose Molly Mae, Brighton Belle by True Bride and once on, she didn’t want to take it off.

I loved it!! Once I’d got it on I was ready to go…I never saw myself in a long dress with a big train.

With it’s beautiful illusion neckline and pretty lace detail it allowed Anna to feel comfortable. The three quarter length sleeves were covered in lace as was the bodice and skirt. The polka dot tulle full 1950s style skirt swished as she moved and the whole look was brought together with some t-bar wedding shoes.

Anna wore her hair in a low bun with a pretty bridal vine hairpiece and carried a stunning bouquet of pink roses and peonies.  Jon wore a navy suit and a baby blue tie with a rose buttonhole which tied in with Anna’s flowers.

I REALLY loved my dress and got lots of compliments, especially the back! I want to wear it again!!!

An Intimate Wedding Day

The couple had some of their photographs taken, with their photographer Leela, in Amersham High Street. They got lots of attention and congratulations from locals who were happy to see some good things happening around them.

It went SO so fast but I honestly wouldn’t change a thing looking back, just brilliant. 

With only 15 guests present, it was a relaxed and intimate wedding celebration that allowed the couple to let go of the past stress. They were able to fully enjoy the magical day. With the sun shining on them they had a wedding banquet filled with love and family.

Some special touches were the video messages from guests who unfortunately weren’t able to celebrate in person and speeches made by close family. The couple also received a surprise gift from their bridesmaids in the form of a collection of interviews with guests that they’d put together which meant a lot to them all.
