I fell head over heels for their day the second I saw their photos. You’ll love them too!

“We tried our very best to find suppliers local to either our home in Cardiff or from our wedding location in Devon, as we are very keen on supporting local businesses.  We looked at wedding magazines, local wedding blogs and pinterest for most of our ideas and then found most of our contacts at local wedding fairs or via the recommendation of family and friends.”

“The venue was so exquisite, no additional styling was necessary.  All we added was a few personal touches and a vase of flowers per table, created by [our florist] Sally.  Burgh Island Hotel is an absolutely exceptional venue, with incredible scenery and exquisite décor… to have tried to add further decoration would have been completely superfluous and would have detracted from its charm.”

The English Wedding Blog Interview: Myles and Cherry 

Wedding photographer’s website:

www.lucywallacephotography.com

How did you choose your photographer?

We met Lucy at a local wedding fair and we instantly fell in love with her photographs!

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

We feel really privileged to have had Lucy capture our big day and could not be more thrilled with the results.  Lucy was a real ‘breath of fresh air’:  her relaxed nature and receptiveness to our own ideas, made working together so very easy.  Prior to the wedding, she was so approachable and even helped us to work out our timings for the day.  But it was on the big day that we were so grateful to have Lucy with us:  a friendly face and a calming influence, full of beautiful ideas for our photographs and yet so discrete and unobtrusive that at times you didn’t even notice her capturing special moments with guests.  Lucy is a real talent, an absolute joy to work with and above all a jolly lovely lady!

Tell us about the moment you saw your wedding photos for the first time?

There were tears… lots of happy tears!  We really were blown away: the photos are above and beyond our expectations.

Wedding venue:

Coffinswell church, Devon

Burgh Island Hotel, Bigbury on Sea

Wedding month:

August

Can you describe your wedding in fewer than 10 words?

Intimate, art deco inspired day to always remember

Your wedding style or theme:

Art Deco/ 1920’s

Where did you find your suppliers? (Blogs, magazines, recommendations?)

Recommendation: we tried our very best to find suppliers local to either our home in Cardiff or from our wedding location in Devon, as we are very keen on supporting local businesses.  We looked at wedding magazines, local wedding blogs and pinterest for most of our ideas and then found most of our contacts at local wedding fairs or via the recommendation of family and friends.

What’s your top tip for saving money?

Choosing a stunning venue may save you a fortune in the long run as you won’t need extra budget for unnecessary decorations.  Home-made touches like confetti cones and seating plans can also save a bit of cash.

… and which elements of your wedding are you glad you spent more on?

We were very fortunate to have been helped by our family with some of the expenses but we wouldn’t compromise on the venue, it was stunning.  Investing in the right dress and the groomsmen attire will make you feel ‘a million dollars’ on the big day.

Where did you buy or source your wedding stationery – or was making it a labour of love?

 We used a supplier from the Cardiff area called Olive wedding stationery; we were thrilled with the designs.

Did you fall in love with your wedding dress?

 Absolutely…it was only the fourth dress that I had tried on and I knew instantly that it was ‘the one’!

Wedding dress designer and bridal boutique:

 Essense of Australia

Laura May, Cardiff

Tell us about your accessories: jewellery, shoes and anything else!

 Headdress: inspired by the art deco theme: purchased Laura May, Cardiff

Shoes: Rachel Simpson ivory leather t-bar heels

Jewellery: I borrowed my mum’s beautiful pearl earrings and Myles bought me a beautiful Tiffany bracelet, with a silver and tiffany blue heart on it for my ‘new and blue’

And what did the groom wear? Any recommendations for tailors?

 Myles wore a stunning Hugo Boss tuxedo with some patent black shoes from Moss Bros.

Our groomsmen all wore tuxedos that we purchased as wedding favours from Moss Bros.

Having all of the groomsmen in different coloured socks was a really fun touch and made for a fantastic wedding photo!

Beautiful bridesmaids: what did your best girls wear?

 We had one bridesmaid, Zoe, who looked sensational in a Virgos Lounge dress in a pale apricot with embellished capped sleeves.

We also had two totally adorable flower girls, Delilah and Tangmo, who wore dresses from John Lewis, with matching shoes.

Hair and make-up – did you DIY or hire a professional?

My hair was in a chignon: we hired a professional hairdresser called Alison Zaple, who happens to be my mum’s hairdresser on a regular basis and always does a fantastic job.

I DIY’d my make up: prior to the wedding mum and I went to Lancome at a department store, I had a trial make over and then bought a number of the products to use on the big day and they’ll keep me going for the next few months too!

Describe your wedding flowers. Who arranged them for you? (florist details would be lovely please)

Our florist was Sally Harris who lives in a neighbouring village to our church wedding.  The flowers were utterly beautiful and were all white or cream, with a mixture of white roses, fresias, hydrangeas and gerberas, and all were to be in keeping with the art deco theme.

Crafts and makes – tell us about any homemade elements of your wedding… did you enjoy them?

Confetti cones… more hassle than they are worth (we spent countless hours making them when bags would have sufficed!)

Personalised couples journey photo montage… a very personal touch that many appreciated

Seating plan… easy to prepare yourself and also if there are last minute changes you can rectify yourself

Instead of personalized wedding favours we made a donation to the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

The wedding cake: what kind of cake did you choose and why?

Our cake was also Art Deco inspired and was created by Sue Nuttall from ‘Daisy, Molly and Me’.  We chose three separate tiers based on our favourite cakes to eat: carrot cake with cream cheese, chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and lemon drizzle cake with limencello cream.  The decoration was a combination of ivory icing with a gold leaf layer and two gold ‘sun-burst’ motifs.

Entertainment: any musical recommendations, surprises or treats?

My brother is in a fantastic band called ‘Emerald Hill’ who had the whole wedding party on their feet for hours.  Whilst my brother was an usher, having his band play on the day made his role even more special.

On the day tips and advice:

 Relax and just enjoy it… soak up every minute because after all of the pre-wedding hard work and preparation, it’s your chance to spend time together in the company of those you love.   Don’t be preoccupied with making everything perfect, chances are your guests will be paying far less attention to the minute detail as you are!

What’s the best thing about being married?

 Knowing that you’re going to be spending the rest of your life with your best friend.

  • Groom's view - the best things about marriage: "Looking at my ring finger every day to see the ring and what it means to us. Being able to introduce Rowena as my Wife as opposed to the girlfriend! Having the lady that I fell in love with at pretty much first glance now being my wife. Coming home after work and just talking to one another spending time as a three with our 3 and a half year old daughter."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
