The Perfect Traditional English Wedding
If you’re after the perfect English wedding, then look no further.
Denbies Wine Estate will capture your heart, and have you inspired from the moment you arrive.
Situated on the outskirts of Dorking in Surrey hills, the expansive Denbies Estate feels like an English fairy tale. With acres upon acres of rolling vineyards, the tranquil rolling hills, and vintage feel lures you in and captivates you.
This is exactly what happened for Linda and her new rugby-loving husband, James.
With the perfect backdrop to their special day, Linda began her day the traditional way. Surrounded by her bridesmaids in the antiquated Denbies hotel getting ready.
Hair and makeup, by Olivia Mills MUA, was kept stunningly simple, yet elegant. Loose, wavy curls with a side sweep for the bridesmaids and a soft half-up do for Linda allowed for her fine veil that ran down the length of her back.
Linda’s dress was just as delicate. By Luv Bridal, Sydney, the floral sheet lace fell over a silky charmeuse, making it the perfect mix of vintage and chic. With thin, lace shoulder straps, the perfect low back, and a short, but exquisite train, Linda looked every part of the English fairy tale.
The bridesmaid dresses were gentle hues of sage green and soft blue that complimented the frosty greenery in the bouquets. Flowers by Elaine did an exquisite job, with the flowers bringing the entire look together. Soft creams and off-white roses contrasted the greenery and small pops of soft purple.
From the vintage Denbies hotel, Linda and her girls made their way to the Garden Room ceremony where James was waiting. Perfect Words Ceremonies, by Nikki Wood, guided the couple through a beautiful, tailor-made ceremony that reflected Linda and James perfectly.
Now married, the bridal party headed into the vines for some photos. Contrasted by the green valley were the dried vineyards, which made for the most stunning images. James’s steel-coloured jacket against the white of Linda’s dress, and frosty colouring of the bouquet was magic against the setting of the afternoon sun.
The evening was held in the Conservatory Atrium where guests were welcomed by a flowing central fountain and tropical plants. The romantic venue was filled with fairy lights that met at a point in the middle of the clear ceiling, making them look like glittering stars against the night sky.
The bouquets continued to be the centre point for the evening, placed on each table within lace lined vases, and sitting atop a piece of wood. The theme continued to the cake, with a strikingly simple design that reflected the entire wedding.
The celebrations continued into the night accompanied by the band, Miracle Cure, who set the mood and made for a memorable wedding.
