When today’s real bride was planning her big day, she made the unusual move of buying her shoes before she’d even stepped foot inside a dress shop. But who can blame her when the shoes in question were a pair of electric blue jewel-encrusted Sex-and-the-City style Manolo Blahniks?
This super-classy wedding is full of super-pretty details, from white roses and blush peonies to on-trend rose gold accents. The navy/ivory/blush colour scheme is effortlessly chic, and the quaint red-brick charm of their reception venue makes for countless exquisite photo opportunities.
Get ready for some serious gorgeousness, guys.

jane says: We got engaged on 4th June 2016, in Tatton Park, Knutsford. It was a sunny day and Tom suggested going for a picnic. We found a spot by the lake, Tom put some music on, opened a bottle of champagne and the next thing I knew he was on one knee asking me to marry him!
We married on 3rd June 2017. We picked this date as it was the same weekend we got engaged, so it was a special weekend for us already.
The ceremony was at St Wilfrid’s Church in Mobberley, and the reception was at The Church Inn pub just over the road. We picked The Church Inn as it was our local pub – in fact, we had our second date there. We have lots of good memories of the Inn from over the years. Once we’d picked the reception venue, we decided to have a look at St Wilfrid’s church and fell in love with beautiful, so it was an easy choice for us.
We didn’t really have a theme; we just wanted the wedding to be very relaxed and for people to enjoy the day. Colour-wise, however, we went for blush, rose gold, ivory and navy. I’d always had an idea of how I wanted our wedding day to look and it was based on these colours.
I had a ‘traditional’ wedding dress designed by Pronovias. I bought it from Eternity Bridal. Unusually, I picked my dress to match my shoes as I’d chosen my footwear first! I saw my dress online and knew it was the one. It had everything I wanted: a v-back, long train and could be changed for the evening do.
On the day of the wedding, I used Maxine Smith as a makeup artist. She was fantastic and I would definitely recommend her. My hair was done by Unity Hair Studio. David and Paula did a fantastic job – there was a lot of us who needed our hair doing!
Tom wore a suit from Whitfield and Ward. It was three-piece and navy with a grey waistcoat. Our groomsmen wore the same as the groom but they wore plain navy ties as opposed to a spotty one.
