Like so many awesome couples these days, Vivien and Nick wanted a wedding to reflect them – and that meant going against what a lot of their friends and family thought! When people expressed disapproving words that the bride would be wearing black, she ignored them! She knew it was the right choice for her, and thank goodness she stuck with it because doesn’t she look SPECTACULAR?!
“The wedding theme was our take on Victorian elegance… meets metal!” began Vivien. “Our colour scheme was black and cream. I initially dreamt of a ‘black-out’ wedding, where EVERYONE present would be dressed entirely in black. I still think that would have looked amazing, but as word spread around family, friends and colleagues that I would be wearing black it became apparent that many don’t share my enthusiasm for the shade! I faced a lot of pressure to change my mind, and wear ANYTHING other than black. It was actually ridiculous. I’m so, so happy now that I didn’t compromise on what I wanted just so that others would feel more comfortable.”
