Anthony & Collette’s Laid Back & Timeless Wedding

June 29, 2011

Anthony & Collette were married at South Farm in Hertfordshire. They wanted their day to be laid back and timeless, so a matchy-matchy or strong theme really wasn’t for them. “We took our inspiration from a few different sources,” the bride told me. “We wanted it to be quite understated but not boring.”

“We didn’t so obviously want to have a things match or have a recognisable theme.  We did, however, want everything to complement each other. Kind of like how my wedding ring and engagement ring contrasted but complemented each other – a traditional white diamond engagement ring with a black diamond ‘eternity’ wedding ring.”

Collette wore a dress by Temperley which she found in the flagship store in Notting Hill, London. It was ready to wear but she had the sleeves shortened to suit her more. She accessorised with Chie Mihara shoes which she had sent over from Spain (as she couldn’t get the colour she wanted in this country) a hair clip from Anthropologie in Kings Road London and a beaded Vintage bag from antique fair held at Hammersmith Town Hall.

Beautiful! Thanks so much to Anthony & Collette and their photographer Emli Bendixen for sharing their wedding with us today.
