Belinda & Dan’s – Rustic Wedding

Huge thank you to our lovely Bride Belinda for sharing these stunning images of her wedding by Johnny Draper Photography, and an extra special thank you to Brides up North for featuring us on their fabulous blog.

I remember as if it was yesterday when we got the call from Belinda’s mum Gill, it was just five weeks before the wedding and sadly Belinda had fallen out of love with a gown she had already chosen. With her wedding date, so close time was ticking and the pressure was on. We opened late especially to fit Belinda in and ensure she had a calm and welcoming experience to help her find the dress of her dreams.

When she arrived, she was very nervous and worried we might not have a gown to suit her, we chatted over a glass of bubbly about her perfect vision and what she wanted on her big day. She was looking for a simple understated gown, and wanted to feel like a bride without too much fuss. To ensure that this was what she wanted we tried almost every shape, fabric and style.

We worked the rails together and Belinda fell in love with Cassidy by Maggie Sottero and she instantly knew she was the one. As an additional touch we chose a full length Italian tulle veil to compliment the gown perfectly.
