An ethereal feel was just perfect for this Norfolk bride

Bride Tori and husband Paul wanted a small intimate Norfolk venue – the temple nestled in Holkham Hall woods was perfect.

An open fire and no electricity gave just the right setting for their relaxed wedding.

They organised it in two months for 20 guests, with life long best friend Karena as Maid of Honour and Tallulah their cocker spaniel the ring bearer.

The wedding theme was warm, cosy and relaxed, with the log fire and lots of candles the centrepiece.

The colour palette was soft and muted in shades of blush, creams, dusty pinks, sagey greens and metallics to create a gentle, ethereal feel.

A fan of all things vintage, Tori tracked down lots of old cut glass candlesticks and mercury glass votives in various silver shades. She found all sorts of treats and accessories at one of her favourite shops, Vintage Home & Garden in Thornham, including an old vintage ‘Bar’ sign for the champagne table.

Flowers by Love Blooms included memory land roses and hanging amaranthus in the bridal bouquet, plus a hydrangea garland on the mantelpiece and two garland rings for the temple pillars. Big branches of magnolia were striking next to a vintage bench, and, loving big bundles of hydrangeas, Tori filled the basket of her Pashley bike with a good armful to create a fun parking sign. Mini milk bottles holding a rose and some sage had hydrangea themed tags as pretty place names.

Tori loved Jenny Packham designs and found the ideal wedding dress at her flagship store in Mayfair. The first she tried on, its beading and slight blush colour created a really flattering tone.

Hunting chandelier earrings she discovered a Lulu Frost design at Whistles. Continually drawn to the natural, ethereal look of flower garlands, she was not sure about wearing one but found instead a gold plated garland crown by designer Avigail Adam.

She did her own hair in her usual lightly pinned up style, and used Love Moi Makeup.

Karena wore a Coast cocktail dress with antique gold sequin and a drape detail while Paul looked handsome in a dark blue, slim fitting suit with a silver-brown tie.

The wedding dinner was at their local, the Hoste Arms in Burnham Market. Having a small party meant everyone could order their own choice from the menu, served with plenty of champagne and lovely wines.

The couple also held a cocktail party in London with those who couldn’t be at the ceremony.
