I have to admit that I’ve never actually watched an episode of Game of Thrones myself, but I knew as soon as I saw Laura and Paul’s June wedding that I had to share it! They were married at Meols Hall in Churchtown.

“The inspiration for the wedding was a mix of a number of concepts”, explained Laura. “I would describe my personal style as ‘contemporary Nordic’ so I love furs, antlers, skulls, slate and wood. I think that one of the main things that made our wedding unique was ‘Dave’ our deer head. Paul and I have a number of animal skulls in our house but Dave is one of our favourites so the wedding wouldn’t have been the same without him!”

The bride’s incredible dress was made for her by Legend Bridal Design. “The inspiration for my dress derived heavily from Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones. I absolutely knew I wanted leather in my dress and the heart back was a take on dragon scales. A year’s worth of inspiration and collaboration with the ladies at Legends culminated in a dress that we are all very proud of. We also tied the antler theme in to my bouquet, with material and leather flowers to add a feminine touch.”

“We actually didn’t tell anyone about our wedding plans before the big day. We wanted everything to be a surprise so my mum didn’t even get to see my wedding dress! It was really hard to keep everything a secret from our families as we are really close but we wanted it to be a surprise. My Aunty commented ‘It was just the right side of different’. I think everyone was shocked most by my dress!”
