From The Beginning
For Holly and Jamie it all began at their local craft centre. They worked there together for some time and formed a connection through their love of creativity. After spending six wonderful years together, Jamie popped the question and Holly of course, said "yes"! They planned their wedding over the space of 12 months, resulting in a day that perfectly suited their creative style and reflected their joint appreciation of country music.
The Wedding Looks
Holly walked down the aisle in an exquisite Enzoani wedding dress from TDR Bridal Birmingham. The gown has a stunning fit n' flare silhouette and features a beautiful all over intricate lace design. The bride added a number of unique touches to her look to suit the theme, including a white stetson and delicate hair feathers in white and natural colours. Her look was completed by a pair of Dingo cowgirl boots, which, after a detour via Mexico, found their way to her in the UK.
Jamie, on the other hand, exuded cowboy charm in a Twister cowboy hat from Wild Wild Western Wear. He accompanied this with cowboy boots, collar tips, and a striking belt buckle. His outfit was completed with Levi 501 jeans, a pin stripe jacket, waistcoat and a feather buttonhole from Etsy UK; this was certainly the perfect finishing touch that really elevated the theme.
The bridal party looked absolutely stunning alongside Holly. Lucy, Holly's twin sister, was maid of honour, while nieces Lottie and Millie added sweetness to the celebration as flower girls. Lucy's dress was adorned with floral shaped details made with sequins and bead embellishments. They found this gorgeous dress from Coast and of course completed the look with a pair of cowgirl boots.
Jamie's nephew Oliver also took on the important role of being the ring bearer. He embraced the cowboy style with enthusiasm, complete with his own toy guns!
