Real Wedding: Rebecca and David's Glam Country Wedding

Rebecca and David’s British country wedding in November was held at the picturesque Dewsall Court in Hereford. The setting was magical and the autumnal scenery added a rustic ambiance contributing to a truly memorable day. We were blown away by the amazing photographs by My Beautiful Bride, which captured the atmosphere of this traditional and glam wedding perfectly.

The Venue

The venue was hired for the whole weekend so their guests could enjoy sharing some quality time with them. An intimate civil ceremony took place on Friday evening at the house attended by close family and friends. They then had their main ceremony on the Saturday afternoon in the quaint church within the grounds of Dewsall Court, where proceedings were officiated by Rebecca’s father, a retired vicar.

The Couple

It was love at first sight for us when we saw Rebbeca’s dress, check out the pic below to see we weren’t the only ones who were smitten! Rebecca found her gorgeous dusky pink Mischka gown on Net-a-Porter. The groom´s look wasn’t far behind in the style stakes either, with a rather charming blue Alexander McQueen tie and Hugo Boss suit. The vintage inspired bridesmaids dresses from BHLDN also had us crushing big time.

The Catering

The couple kept a focus on quality British food and drink, so rather than go for canapés they allowed their guests to indulge in mini afternoon tea with finger sandwiches, scones and cake made of 2 tiers of chocolate and salted caramel atop a layer of a traditional sponge cake. For the wedding breakfast which was held amid the warm glow of candles in the evocative surroundings of the Wainhouse Barn guests were served posh sausages and mash, gourmet burgers and toasted marshmallows over a fire pit. We loved the sure hit idea of the create your own Bellini bar with mixers and champagne.

The couple got their guests to write them messages to mark the occasion, written on the back of a series of selected classic Penguin book cover postcards instead of in a guestbook to ensure there was no last minute queue for their loved ones to pen their best wishes. Their quintessentially British wedding was breathtakingly romantic and throughly enjoyed by everyone attending leaving them with a wonderful day to remember.

Raise Your Voice: 5 Reasons Brides Make Great Speeches
For months, sometimes even years, brides across the world plan their wedding day and then, when the day comes, the groom stands and thanks the party on behalf of the happy couple. Nevertheless, current trends show that more and more women are taking the floor, breaking convention and making a speech for themselves. Who says we should leave it to the boys? As we celebrate International Women's Day on March the 8th, why not ignore tradition, raise your voice and leave your audience in awe as you, the bride, utter the words "on behalf of my husband/wife and I..."?
