Lucy and Anthony had a truly spectacular wedding day, so if you’re looking for wedding inspiration for your special day, look no further! Anthony & Lucy edit-253

Lucy’s favourite memory of her and Ant’s time together was when he whisked her away for a two night stay in the London Bridge hotel, after they’d been dating for just three weeks! But it was when they were holidaying in Dubai that he finally proposed… This thoughtful groom hired out a private yacht while they were there to take a tour around the Palm, he then got down on one knee and proposed to a very shocked Joanne.

This bride opted for a beautiful mermaid style dress from Ellis Bridals, bought from Bellissima Weddings. Ivory with lace shoulders, buttoned back and covered in diamonté to add that bit of extra sparkle. She accessorised with a J Richards necklace and bracelet and her silver low heel sandals were by Debut at Debenhams.

Lucy’s four bridesmaids all wore dresses by Ashley Roberts, with the final finishing touch of a fresh flower in their hair. The groom chose a lovely navy mohair three piece suit which was tailor made by Anthony’s in Billericay. It was finished off with an ivory coloured waistcoat and cravat that matched Lucy’s dress! A professional hairdresser and makeup artist gave Lucy her stunning wedding day look. Using an airbrush foundation that Lucy had never used before, her look was flawless and super natural.

The speeches were brilliant, thoughtful and personal – Ant’s speech in particular made Lucy really proud. This beautiful couple went for a modern and stylish theme. With the help of Lacey’s Events Services they didn’t have to worry about decorating their venue, everything was taken care of by Lacey’s! They had a beautiful array of flowers including a cherry blossom tree adorned with hanging candles and flowers. A fantastic sweet cart was provided by Sweet Tree Essex, and the cake? A stunning five-tier white chocolate ruffle masterpiece by Vanilla Patisserie!
