Kayleigh Louise Brown, 30, married Karl Anthony Sanderson, 31, at Our Lady Queen of Peace, RC Church, Braintree, followed by a reception at Gosfield Hall on 3rd August, 2018.
My gorgeous bouquet was full of pale-pink peonies and sweet peas, complete with cream silk ribbon and pearl pins.
I wore a Suzanne Neville dress Athena. I loved the fit, eyelash-lace detail and scalloped edging. I asked for it to be made in an off-the-shoulder style and changed the under layer to a champagne satin to really make it my own. I accessorised with a Suzanne Neville traditional cathedral-length veil, Jimmy Choo Lang heels in gold and pearl earrings.
We opted for a four-tier sponge cake with six fabulous flavours, complete with matte-finish icing and pearl shimmer, along with the K&K monogram featured throughout our stationery. The designer Ann also replicated the lace detail and scalloped trim from my dress and featured this on the top layer.
Our florist Emmanuel created enchanting centrepieces. Five of our tables had tall arrangements made from white peonies, hydrangeas, herbs, white dill and beautiful garden roses, which were surrounded by a collection of gold tea lights, petals and single stems of peonies. The remaining five tables had low-level arrangements made of the same blooms with additional snapdragons and sweet peas.
Park Ward Carriage Company provided an impeccable service complete with red carpet and a champagne toast for the bride and groom directly after the church service. The quarter convertible Rolls-Royce Phantom VI Laudaulette and Daimler DS420 Laudaulette are simply stunning and we certainly travelled in style on our big day.
For our table names we chose classical poets and authors to mirror our theme, these were printed in gold leaf to match our stationery design and set in gold frames. We incorporated a famous love quote from each author which made for a romantic setting.
