As soon as we met Chloe, we knew she was a Claire Pettibone bride. A true romantic, Chloe wanted soft lace and a dress she felt free in for her wedding at the stunning riverside venue ~ The Master Builders ~ on the Beaulieu Estate.
Queen Annes's Lace was the chosen dress and some gold glitter Jimmy Choo's the super stylish choice of footwear. We styled the gown with a silky tulle veil and some golden shade crystal hair pins by Polly Edwards for the evening.
A lovely and unique touch to their wedding was their 'First Look'. Chloe and Paul had decided they wanted to see each for the first time alone on a small beach near to their venue. After some time alone and a quick iced coffee, off they went back to the Master Builders for their heartfelt ceremony.
After the ceremony the sun shone and guest mingled on the lawn playing giant chess and outdoor games. The it was into the reception for a fabulous picnic dinner, with luxury hampers containing scrummy food goodies on the tables. We can't help but laugh out loud at the hilarious inspiration behind the table names too....
"I really can't praise you and Natalie (and your wonderful seamstress) enough for your superb service and support. You were all so sweet and understanding, and very patient when it came to my last-minute requests, including the fantastic sleeves (don't they look just perfect?!). I felt so comfortable and happy in my dress, and received so many heart-felt compliments - I think I glowed from the inside out all day! Our 'first look' before the ceremony, on a small (windy!) beach just outside Lymington, was especially memorable. The photographer captured Paul as he turned to see me for the first time and the expression on his face is priceless: it seems he liked the dress a lot, too! Thanks to you all for helping to make that extraordinary moment possible." Wishing you all the very best for the future - I'm sure Exquisite Bridal Couture will continue to have all the success it deserves."
Thank you Chloe for your lovely comments. Your wedding is a vibrant mix of love, laughter and general merriment and thank you for sharing these very special images with us!
