Jenny Jenny Jenny, what a beauty!
This amazing image sums up jenny, she has the most infectious smile and was just a constant joy to be around. Today we have the pleasure of sharing her wedding story with you….
How did he Propose?
Seb is french canadian and originally grew up in quebec, we had travelled out in January to go see his family. On the last night of the trip we were walking back to the hotel to find a horse and cart waiting outside. We went for a scenic ride around quebec in the snow and then a walk through a park all lit up with fairy lights. It was very romantic.
Where did you get married?
We got married at my grandmothers cottage in wales, it has always been out hideaway. Hiden in the middle of nowhere in wales near a beautiful tiny seaside town of Aberdovey. My nan has been un well in recent years and was living back in coventry to be looked after by family so it seemed like a good idea to create something magical in our favourite place.
The whole week leading up to the wedding was a challenge we had torrential rain, strong winds, I was having to buy event shelters for next day delivery. We were all continuously nervously watching the forecast for the weekend. We planned to have a bonfire and the neighbours burgers on the friday night as everyone settled into there bell tents and camping area. Then the saturday have the ceremony on Aberdovey beach followed by the wedding picnic and party at the marquee at the cottage. Unfortunately the weather Saturday morning was looking a bit questionable so we opted for plan B and everyone got stuck in to reset the marquee for a ceremony.
As I stepped out the old chapel where we were getting ready and put my arm around dad the sun broke and it stayed dry for the rest of the day. We were so lucky! We even got to do the first dance in the grass (Ed Sheeran – perfect ) followed by a proper knees up in the marquee with live band Isambards wheel who were incredible. The whole day felt magical.
During the first dance everyone was stood around watching us, I called then all to join and it was just amazing watching everyone slow dance with there partners as the sunset and the firepits and lights glowed it will be an image that will stay with me forever
It picked me! I wanted something floaty but also suitable for fields. I had to swallow as I took some of my first steps over a muddy path to get to the marquee but the dress was perfect and the layers actually hid the mud well
There was so much love, sebs family had flown from canada, others from all over the world. We were just in awe of the whole day and impressed that we had actually managed to pull it off. A DIY wedding in the middle of nowhere! Not an easy thing to organise but so worth it as I feel the pictures speak for themselves.
How did you accessories your dress?
I had borrowed my sisters earings which i had bought her for her wedding, they were bought in the bahamas where seb and i met (working on the disney cruise ship)
The necklace was a seaglass pendant which i had made myself, the seaglass i had collected over years of dogwalking on the cornish beaches we live by. (I had the great idea to make seaglass pendents for all the ladys as a favour, took a while but turned out as such a lovely gift to everyone)
Shoes? I had a nightmare! Pearl footless sandles, small floral wedges, flip-flops and wellies!
But my sister had decorated some lovely white wedding wellies and hand drawn designs similar to the wedding cake which looked amazing so I lived in them most the night.
5 bridesmaids living very far apart. One in Australia, so I tasked then with a colour scheme and a style and sent then on there way. The first time we put them all together was in the morning getting ready. We were sooo lucky that they complimented each others so well! They all looked stunning.
What did the Groom wear?
His suit was from Asos. He demanded it be blue and left the rest to me
