The saying ‘you’ll know when you find The One’ couldn’t be more true for our lovely bride Charlotte, it took her 26 dresses before she found her dream gown in the stunning Skyler by Augusta Jones.

Back detail on Skyler by Augusta Jones

Charlotte and groom George were married in April, at the country house gem Notley Abbey in Buckinghamshire. Processco and strawberries were the order of the day (Charlotte really is a girl after our own heart), with a shabby chic theme including gorgeous burlap, lace and simple flowers such as hydrangeas and gypsophilia.

Charlotte’s dress, by masters of lace Augusta Jones, fitted seamlessly with their chic yet laid back style. A full lace gown, Skyler compliments Charlotte’s beautiful figure, and just look at that incredible back….we just love it!

The couple created some lovely and touching personal details for the day, including tributes to George’s father who they lost 18 months before the wedding. Their favours, sachets of coffee in burlap bags, were made by his best friend in memory to his days working in the coffee industry, and toasts were done with his favourite cocktail, a Sgroppino – lemon sorbet, vodka and processco (Charlotte informs us they were rather delicious but ever so lethal!).

The guests were treated to beef wellington for the main meal, followed in the evening by bacon sandwiches and fish n chips, and in Charlotte’s own words ‘becoming Mr & Mrs Cheeseman meant a cake of cheese was an absolute must!’

Bride and Groom

Here are some wise words from Charlotte for all you lovely brides to be out there:

‘Don’t let it take over your life. Your wedding day is one to be cherished and enjoyed, don’t let it become hard work. Relax, on the day everything will happen and you will love it no matter what. Throughout the day take some time out as a new couple and look in at what is happening around you and relish in it – it goes much too quickly!’

A big congratulations to Charlotte and George from all of us at Ellie Sanderson, we are so pleased you had such a wonderful day!! x
