Jennifer & Robert's Real Wedding

After a glorious 10 month engagement, Jennifer and Robert shared their vows in front of 80 close family and friends at St. Mary’s Church in Westow; the very same church Rob’s parents were married several years before.  Nestled in the heart of the Yorkshire countryside and with stunning views, it was the ideal beginning to their elegant, classic and vintage themed autumn wedding day. 

Robert & Jennifer-The Newlywed Couple

Three and a half years after meeting at their workplace Robert surprised Jennifer with a weekend away to Windsor.  On the last night of their fun-filled mini-break, the couple enjoyed a romantic dinner for two followed by an evening stroll along the River Thames.  Getting down on one knee on a jetty, Robert popped the question, presenting Jennifer with a ring inherited from his late grandmother. 

Purchased in 1948 in New York City, Robert’s Grandparents were married for 50 years, meaning the antique was not only a family heirloom, but also a sentimental symbol of good luck.

Jennifer and Robert asked guests to celebrate with them by sending out beautiful aubergine and ivory wedding invitations; designed by the couple - including their custom typography - and made by a friend.  As there were only day guests, evening invitations were unnecessary.
