What inspired your wedding style

I loved the combination of gold and maroon, so that motivated the colours. We both felt that they were bold colours that represented royalty. With regards to style, we wanted a simple but elegant feel. Simple doesn’t mean boring or common, so we solved that by having a lot of personal touches included in our wedding details and this included items such as a personalised aisle runner, banners with family images and a hand drawn family portrait with hubby and my son.

Bride’s cherished moments

Being able to walk down the aisle with my dad to meet my best friend and soon to be husband.

When my hubby read his vows, more specifically the honest emotion I felt as he read them.
