A SIMPLE & STYLISH WEDDING IN SUSSEX
Lindsey & Jordan got married in Summer this year at Woodhouse Farm Henfield.
“We wanted a wedding that wasn’t too traditional looking and was really simple, bright and airy. As a wedding Coordinator, I see so many different styles, so over time I have really homed in on exactly what I like (Jordan was mainly happy with going along with my suggestions!). I follow quite a few wedding planners on Instagram, such as Sinclair & Moore, and I just love everything they do, so they definitely inspired me! I love the mix of light coloured linens and flowers, with a few pops of dark colour that they often do.
There wasn’t a specific colour theme, but we kept to mainly muted tones of green, coppers and pale pink, but brought a bit of depth in with dark burgundy flowers. We also wanted a small nod to Montgenèvre, France, where Jordan lived for a season and I learnt to ski, so our table names were all named after the ski lifts there. Essentially, the styling was made up of lots of little bits that we liked, which fortunately all worked together!”
FINDING THE DRESS
“All I knew when I started dress hunting was that the fabric had to be crepe, with a little lace. I saw the Pronovias Vicenta dress years ago and loved it, so it was always going to be something like that. My first shopping day ended in Go Bridal as I wanted to try a Morilee dress that was in the sale, I thought this would be the one, but Enzoani Mckinley dress made me think again, it was amazing! Although I loved it, it wasn’t quite the right dress for our wedding in a field, so Laura mentioned the Enzoani Juri dress that they were getting in the next month. I was planning on coming in to try Juri, but had seen the Enzoani Karter online and loved it, Laura so kindly ordered the sample on for me and when I came back in to try it on it was definitely the one! The fit was perfect, and it had just the right amount of sparkle and lace. I also didn’t want to have a traditional wedding dress, so the lace over nude bodice was perfect!”
A FAVOURITE MOMENT
“There are so many small parts of the day that were really special, like our evening food grazing table which was beautifully created by a friend. If I had to choose, I think my favourite part of the day would have to be our silent disco in the evening. We have some brilliantly talented friends who made our playlists and completely tailored them to our tastes, neither of us wanted to leave at the end of the night! Jordan particularly loved the Conga that his Brother started around the lake, charging around to Lionel Richie ‘All Night Long’, which the whole wedding party joined in with, so many of our guests commented that this was their favourite part too.”
ADVICE FROM THE BRIDE
“My advice to future brides would be to organise the big bits as quickly as you can and get a clear idea on your vision for the day. This way, over the next few months or even years of planning you can relax into it, have a little bit of time where you’re not thinking about it or talking about it all the time too! Nearer to the date, try to have the last few weeks of just doing those last minute jobs, don’t leave anything too late so that you can relax and enjoy the days leading up to the wedding as those few days before are really special too!”
