Lucy & Tom Tie The Knot
Posted on June 18 2018
Lucy and Tom never let distance become an issue when they met seven years ago on a night out with friends. Romantic Tom took an unsuspecting Lucy to her favourite city – Paris – for her birthday and proposed with the sparkling lights of the Eiffel Tower as the perfect backdrop. We wanted to know more, so we asked Lucy to share some other special memories from her wedding day…
“My husband Tom and I met seven years ago and I think we both knew we had found someone special. We spent a few years travelling back and forth visiting each other; I was living away at university and Tom moved all over the country with his job.
Finally, two years ago, Tom took me to my favourite place, Paris for my Birthday and popped the question!
We got married at our local church which is just across the road from where we live. I walked over the zebra crossing to the church with my bridal party, we were really lucky with the weather and it was an Abbey Road style moment as we processed across the zebra crossing to meet Tom at the altar! Our reception was at a rustic barn close by which we filled with plenty of fairy lights and beautiful flowers.
I purchased the Amelie shoe in duck egg blue. I really wanted something a little different for my wedding shoes and when I spotted the Amelie shoes in a small bridal boutique in Altrincham I knew I had to have them. They were beautifully elegant and girly with the lace up detail but also a little quirky being blue! The beautiful soft leather made them extra comfy so I was able to wear them all through the day and all night on the dance floor!
My wedding dress was from a small bridal boutique called Lulu Browns. It was the first dress I tried on in the shop and instantly I knew it was the one. The dress was designed by Dutch bridal designers Modeca. It was elegant and fitted and I opted for a lace Justin Alexander jacket which just happened to match perfectly which I wore in the day, and took off for a different look in the evening. I had a full-length cathedral veil too.
I also had a beautiful hand-crafted hair comb from Miss Clemmie bridal accessories which was really pretty and for my little something blue I had my gorgeous Rachel Simpson shoes!
My flowers were a mixture of roses, peonies, sweet peas, love in the mist and forget me nots (to tie in the blue with my shoes).
Our day was filled with lots of personal touches, I am a graphic designer so I absolutely loved getting creative and designing all our wedding stationery and adding lots of little touches to make the day extra special for our guests. Tom did an amazing job at making a D.I.Y Photo Booth too!
We were really lucky to borrow a friend’s classic car and Tom drove us to the reception venue after the church service, it was so nice to have a special moment together to chat and take everything in- even if we did get a little windswept!
We love that some of our brides choose our shoes for their something blue. What did you have for yours? Did you follow the tradition? It seems to be one that has really stood the test of time. Why not have a look at all our blue shoes, we have something to suit all styles.
