Wedding Anniversary

Today is our wedding anniversary, Alan and I have been married for 3 years. Here are a selection of pictures of the beautiful and wonderful day we had. It was a hot and sunny on that day.
Tiara I wore with a veil, Pearl Heart locket necklace and little light silk and antique lace jacket if I felt cold (It didn't get much use as the temperatures were quite high on that day)
I bought the necklace from BASIA ZARZYCKA, Sloane Square, London

Her shop is wonderful to walk around in and explore, jewellery and vintage things here there and every where. It is small and compact but there is so much too look at! Everything is so beautifully displayed. I love that shop. The instant I set my eyes on this necklace, I knew it was the one for me.

The tiara, I bought at an antiques market in Bath

For my bouquet, I wanted some flowers that you would find in a garden to give it a more natural look, there were roses, hebes, various herbs, honeysuckle and some blackberries at their green stage. I was so pleased with it, the scent was heavenly.

The happy couple in Church.
It was a joint Church of England & Catholic wedding ceremony.

My dress was made with a mixture of new and old.. All the lace used was antique. It was fun designing and chosing the fabrics etc. It was made for me by a bridal shop in Wells. The lady who made the dress for me very quickly tuned in to what I was after and came up with a selection of antique lace for me to choose.

My lovely bridesmaids (my sister and my niece), flower girls (Phoebe far left and my sister's daughters and page boy (My sister's son). They were all fantastic and really helped make our day a special one.

Phoebe loved the flower petals confetti (We used dried delphiniums)

Alan and I on our way to Marston House, nr Frome where the reception was held.

Getting ready for some photos, we were all very hungry by then...

Marston House is a great setting for a wedding, we loved it there.

We haven't looked back since! Happily married and enjoying life together.

A bientôt!

Oh Suzy, what a wonderful day you had. Everything looks so perfect. I think the bouquet is the loveliest one I have ever seen. I love the fact that your dress was made from antique lace that you were able to choose yourself. The necklace and tiara are stunning. Your taste is so fine and full of grace. Everything suits you so well.

Hi ISABELLE, I just realized that I called you Suzy. Sorry.

Your necklace is stunning.

Here's to you and many more happy years,

How beautiful! Happy Anniversary. I was giggling to myself, because you are also married to an "Alan," which, as MY Alan would say, is the RIGHT way to spell that name.

(grin) Have a wonderful week--what's left of it!

Carole~Maynard Greenhouse said...

Belated Happy Anniversary....late as always.
WOOOOWWWW!!! How beautiful was all that....I don't know where to start. I've never seen a more beautiful wedding and the two of you are just look stunning together. The dress is exactly the kind I would have pictured you in and the jewelry matched perfectly. What lovely pictures to remember the day with.
So happy to have you back Isabelle,

Alicia ~ Time Worn Style said...

Hi Isabelle!
Such a beautiful wedding - Congratulations on your Anniversary!

I'm visiting everyone who showed an interest in Afternoon Tea. I have provisionally booked The Bath Priory for 4pm on Friday 17th July. Can you let me know if this suits you? I will need to confirm numbers with the hotel one week before.
I shall post a short blog entry just to make sure everyone has the details!
Have a super weekend.

Dear Isabelle

Happy Anniversary to you and your husband! It looked like such a wonderful day!

I wanted to write and say thank you for your message today, it meant alot to me. I did not realise you were self employed too - what is it that you do? I can also imagine the culture shock of moving from a vibrant place like Cannes to a sleepy place like Dorset, despite how pretty it is! However, Im happy you are settled now and that life suits you!

Sending love, you are a dear soul and Im delighted and touched that I might have inspired you with your crochet.
