Emma & James’s Real Wedding

Emma and James’ wedding ceremony took place in the fantastic Bellapais Abbey, Northern Cyprus. Keeping the service personal, they wrote their own ceremony and vows and lit a memorial candle to remember loved ones not with them on their day. Doing humorous and touching readings, James and his son Harry had the guests in tears! Later, the guests explored the historical abbey before sitting down to a delicious meal on the grounds of the venue.


The Dress

After trying on at least 30 dresses and changing her mind several times about the design, Emma began to see a style in her head: something slightly fitted with lots of pretty detail. She found her stunning Romantica of Devon gown in All Things Bride and Beautiful, Ollerton, Notts.


To add a bit of ‘Emma’ to the dress, the bridal company customised it a little by adding pink pearls, crystals and a few petals added to the flowers already on the stunning gown.

Emma’s shoes came from Faith and had pretty diamante detail coming down the front of the foot on layers of ivory fabric.

To accessorise, the beautiful bride wore a pretty necklace made by a friend and was given to her as a wedding gift. Wearing her grandma’s engagement ring added even more sentimental detail to Emma’s special day.
