Libby and Matt were married at The Chainstore at Trinity Buoy Wharf. The inspiration for the wedding was the bride’s emerald engagement ring, which was originally Matt’s grandmothers. The also bride wore a bespoke green silk dress by Wendy Benstead.
“We had already been considering green for our main colour, but then we finally moved house and got our first garden, and decided to expand on that and make gardens the theme” the bride said. “We ended up with a gift list at a garden centre, hired trees to decorate the venue, and wild, ivy-type flowers for the bouquets and tables, as well as a garden arch covered in flowers which we got married under.”
“The most unqiue parts of our wedding were probably more the things we didn’t do” she continued. “We didn’t do favours, we didn’t have a first dance, we didn’t have a traditional wedding cake, I haven’t taken Matt’s name, I don’t wear a wedding ring (just my engagement ring) and obviously I didn’t wear white! We decided not to do anything just because it was traditional, although we weren’t against carrying on the traditions which we liked. For instance, throwing confetti seemed to really fit with the theme of the wedding, and I bought some beautiful green and white petals from The Real Flower Confetti Company.”
