Billie & Luke
A ceremony at the All Saints Church, Great Barford was followed by a reception at Braxted Hall on 9th June 2018 for Billie & Luke
Braxted Park is a magnificent country house surrounded by a 500-acre wooded estate, so it was easy to choose a modern, simple yet elegant theme to complement this beautiful venue.
My stunning gown, Alana, was handmade by designer Berta Balilti which I teamed with a pair of electric blue satin Charlotte Olympia heels!
Luke wore a bespoke Stephen Williams three-piece suit and on the back of his waistcoat was a picture of us as a family.
Luke’s dad also wore a Stephen Williams suit and his waistcoat had a picture of Luke as a young boy.
We also had two dogs in wedding suits!
Our focus for the whole day was for our guests to have a fun and memorable time so we started with giant garden games and a magician to break the ice.
Under each table we placed a bag filled with joke items to get the laughter flowing during the wedding breakfast.
They included ‘tattoos’ of our faces with our wedding date on, Cards About Matrimony, dental disaster fake teeth and fake piercings.
As well as a photobooth we had a photo Bride and Groom cut out (the type you see at the seaside) hand painted in a dress and gown similar to our wedding attire.
Our guests also enjoyed the Sole Bay Strings, the amazing singer Irie J and a fabulous DJ from Event Music Services who kept the dancefloor full all night.
We’d both like to thank Pretty Gorgeous Cake for our spectacular cake, Katie Cochrane for the wonderful flowers especially the church arch and hanging arrangements and last but certainly not least our AMAZING photographer, Binky Nixon.
We would also like to say every moment was special, but it goes so fast so make sure to enjoy it and take everything in!
