It’s January, it’s cold outside and we’re all rather poor after too much holiday fun so we thought what better to cheer you up that some images from a glorious summer wedding!

Our beautiful bride Laura, married her handsome groom Jonathan at St Mary’s Church, Stowe followed by an English Country reception at Courteenhall, Northamptonshire.

Laura wore the totally exquisite Mariposa by Claire Pettibone, a modern fishtail gown with intricate embroidery and stunning silk butterflies and flowers. From the minute Laura tried on Mariposa in our Oxford boutique we knew it was a match made in heaven; a true Claire Pettibone bride – totally stunning!

Laura took inspiration from pastels with a touch of gold, mixing in a Northumbrian tartan to reflect Jonathan’s roots. The day was filled with a traditional Ceilidh and finished off with a sparkler run!

In Laura’s own words; “I have so many favourite moments! I loved the church service; arriving at Courteenhall and joining the party on the lawn – Jonny fired a bottle of champagne from the top of the steps like he’d just won a Grand Prix!”

And Laura’s advice for other brides; “We briefed the ushers and bridesmaids with all the timings, lists of group photographs and details for the day – eg ensuring the playlist for dinner was put on etc – and we told the suppliers to contact them with any issues/queries, so we could just sail through our day. It worked a dream and I would definitely recommend doing it; make your bridesmaids and ushers work for the privilege!”

It was a pleasure having you in our store Laura, and you made such a beautiful bride! Congratulations to you and Jonathan and we hope you are enjoying married life!
