Emma and Neil married earlier this summer at East Close Hotel. This boutique hotel has long provided a place for relaxation and inspiration for it's guests. In fact, one of them, author Lewis Caroll is rumoured to have created his tales of a certain young Alice after hearing of her adventures in the enchanted walled garden, on the croquet lawn and under the giant beech tree. This beautiful setting set the scene for Emma and Neil's special day.
Emma is a true fashionista and a fabulous shopper. Always on the lookout for a stylish new outfit Emma was extremely excited when she first visited us on the search for her perfect wedding dress. Emma came inspired by glamorous Hollywood A-listers such as Hilary Duff and Khloe Kardashian. Her chosen dress from Exquisite was an elegant and sophisticated fishtail by Mikaella. As soon as Emma put this dress on and made her way to the front of our boutique to show her mum, we knew that was it. Emma glowed and oozed class, sophistication and style. We finished the gown with a satin edge double tier heart shaped veil.
Emma styled the venue with some lovely touches, soft ivory pom poms lining the aisle, eat me and drink me nods to the Alice in Wonderland history of the venue and a monochrome ivory iced rose cake made by a very good friend of hers....Cakes by Katie.
Emma and Neil make the perfect couple, warm, caring, good fun and just lovely people to be around. We wish you all the best for the future and have a great honeymoon in NYC!
