Today’s real wedding is a contemporary affair with just a touch of vintage. Laura and Matt decided on a mix of modern and classic styling when bride Laura found her dream dress: a beautiful ivory lace gown by Mori Lee.

Stunning views, a vintage ride and possibly the most photogenic tree North of Watford – this wedding really has it all!

laura says: We got engaged during a surprise trip to Prague. Matt presented me with the tickets as my birthday present. On the evening of my birthday, Matt and I went for walk down a pier in Prague which overlooked a river. Then he got down on one knee and proposed!

Our wedding was on the 6th May 2016. We felt that May would be a nice time of year to get married and we were lucky to get warm, dry weather on our wedding day.

Our venue was Heaton House Farm at Rushton Spencer. We wanted to get married in a modern barn conversion and looked at several venues but Heaton House Farm blew us away with their professional team, beautiful venue and stunning grounds.

We didn’t have a specific theme in mind at the beginning – however, after choosing a lace gown, we kept to a contemporary style but added some vintage touches.

We selected a lilac/lavender colour scheme simply as a warm colour. We’d originally planned to place lavender on the tables to complement the vintage touch, although we actually decided against this in the end.

I wore a beautiful ivory lace full-length A-line gown by Mori Lee with a sweetheart neckline (style 2674). I purchased my gown from Brides of Bakewell. It was only the fourth dress I had tried on but I knew instantly it was for me. The dress was exactly what I had pictured wearing on my big day and I felt it suited my personality perfectly.
