Olivia and Martin – An Elegant Winter Wedding
Amazingly, Olivia and Martin worked together for seven years before becoming a couple. “I couldn’t believe my soulmate had been there the whole time!” says Olivia. After 18 months of dating, Martin proposed with a stunning diamond and sapphire ring, in the grounds of the church where Olivia had been christened.
The couple didn’t waste any time – their beautiful February wedding was planned in just six months. “Neither of us wanted a long engagement, and due to our dream venue’s availability, it ended up being an even shorter engagement than we thought!” says the bride.
Beautiful bride Olivia visited Ellie Sanderson to find her dream dress, and ended up picking something she never thought she’d like in her modern Francesca ballgown from Jesus Peiro. The high neckline with plunge cut and bow detail at the waist was the perfect match for the elegance of the wedding day.
Olivia and Martin’s wedding venue was the dreamy Hedsor House in Taplow, which the couple decorated with an elegant colour scheme of muted pink, gold and cream shades to complement their winter wedding date. They tied the knot in the light and airy Great Hall, before going on to celebrate their reception with a delicious meal by caterers Caper and Berry.
Top tip: Olivia and Martin’s luxurious honeymoon to Jamaica wasn’t for a few weeks after the wedding, so immediately after the big day they spent a romantic minimoon in a cottage in Weymouth. This is a great option for brides with children, on a budget or with delayed honeymoons!
