A Northamptonshire wedding with a classic colour scheme

21 Oct 2019

Keeping it simple and elegant, Emma Rutherford and Thomas Plant's traditional church wedding was a timeless occasion

How did you meet?

In Stamford, on a night out.

Tell us about the proposal.

We got engaged during a weekend away in the Cotswolds.

What was the theme for the day, and did you have a colour scheme?

Simple, classic and traditional. We chose all natural colours and had lots of lovely white flowers including peonies, roses and hydrangeas everywhere. It was timeless.

What venue did you choose and why did you choose it?

We had our ceremony at St Mary's Church in Bainton and our reception at Rushton Hall in Kettering. We had been to Rushton Hall a couple of times for the weekend and loved it.

When did you know when you’d found ‘the’ dress?

The first dress I tried on was the dress. I then tried on about eight more just incase. The designer was Dando London.

What did the bridesmaids wear?

I had two bridesmaids, my sisters, and they wore Maid to Measure bridemaids' dresses. I also had two flowergirls, my niece and my cousin, who wore dresses from John Lewis.

What did the groom wear?

His military ceremonial uniform.

Often the aspect that makes a wedding original to the couple is the detail – tell us about the details of the day.

We chose E&T mini chocolates for the favours. We also had a selfie mirror and saxophonists.

How did you feel as you walked down the aisle?

Excited

How did you make the ceremony personal to you?

We selected lovely readings, great hymms and walked out of the church together to Natalie Cole – This Will Be (An Everlasting Love).

What was the most challenging aspect of planning this wedding?

All the little details.

What song did you choose for your first dance, and why?

Tom Walker – You and I. This was the one thing we struggled to decide on, so we went with Tom Walker as we liked the song.

Where did you go on honeymoon?

We went to the Seychelles and we went three days after the wedding.

Do you have any advice for couples in the planning stages?

Relax and enjoy it! Make sure you do what you want to do as it's your day.
