Elaine & Stephen’s Real Wedding

Elaine and Stephen met at a mutual friend’s birthday party, and hit it off. A Christmas Eve proposal led to a 16 year engagement, before Elaine’s grandmother’s ill health spurred them on to planning a wedding in just two weeks so she could share their special day.


The Perfect Dress

With such a short space of time to find a wedding dress, the pressure was really on for Elaine! A lot of places needed to order dresses in and at this point there was less than two weeks to go until the big day!


Elaine went dress shopping with her maid of honour and her husband-to-be’s cousin. She tried on seven dresses before she found the perfect one in Monsoon. The dress was simple and floaty, with beautiful embellishment across the neckline and bodice. The maid of honour also found her dress in Monsoon, an olive coloured, floor length gown. When the maid of honour saw Elaine in her dress, she burst into tears! That was how they knew she’d found the one.

The flower girl looked adorable in an ivory coloured dress with a silver star wand and an ivory gerbera.
