The proposal

“We had been planning a trip to Italy for some months and the proposal took place while we were in Venice,” smiles Lowri. “Sean knows how much I love number patterns, so he popped the question on our two year, two month and two day anniversary. It was the perfect moment for him to ask,” she adds

“When I put on my real wedding dress for the first time, I felt like a million dollars. It perfectly complemented my shape, and the way it caught the light was simply beautiful. I knew it was the one when I saw my Mum crying – we bought it there and then,” smiles Lowri. The dress was by Essense Designs and featured a detailed bodice of Italian lace, silver stitching and diamanté

The accessories

“My beautiful hair comb was by Olivier Laudus. The team there were ever so helpful, and were able to advise me on the perfect accessories to suit my gown,” remembers Lowri. “Also, as a petite bride with only size one feet, I was incredibly worried about finding bridal shoes to fit. Luckily I found Dolcis, where I chose a lovely pair that matched the belt on my dress perfectly,” she adds

The groom’s outfit

“Sean chose his own outfit, and the Prince Edward suit from Greenwoods 1860 was his preferred choice. He liked it because it still looked handsome and traditional but wasn’t as fussy as tails,” explains Lowri. He topped off the look with a silver waistcoat and ruched tie, which helped him stand out as the groom

The bridesmaids

“The bridesmaid outfits were, by far, my best buy for the wedding. I was lucky enough to get both the dresses and matching boleros for just £180 from Debenhams,” recalls Lowri. “Also, instead of bouquets, I decided to have them carry a silver handbag, making the whole outfit something they really would wear again,” she adds

The ceremony

“We were privileged to have two ceremonies on our real wedding day,” remembers Lowri. “The first was a civil ceremony at Owston Hall Hotel, followed by a wedding blessing at All Saint’s Church next door”

The flowers

“My flowers were arranged by my bridesmaid and sister-in-law Polly,” says Lowri. “She tied in all the colours so that it felt Christmassy.”

The reception

To tie in with the couple’s winter theme, they hired eight candelabra as an alternative to table flowers. Additionally, table crystals twinkled alongside to represent snowflakes

The cake

The amazing cupcake tower was baked by A Little Slice of Heaven. A shower of snowflakes were the perfect finishing touch

The honeymoon

“We had a mini moon to Paris straight after the real wedding, however our main trip will be Canada for two weeks. We have lots of exciting activities planned, organised through our Trailfinders wedding gift list,” recalls Lowri.
