It’s a beautiful, bright and crisp winter day, the sun is shining. It’s two day’s after Valentine’s day and love is in the air! It was the beautiful Emily & Lucy’s wedding at the Marks Tey Hotel just outside Colchester, Essex. We arrived bright and bushy tailed to not just one, but two beautiful bridal parties getting ready at opposite ends of the hotel.
Lucy had opted for a fun and timeless short lace-adorned dress with beautifully detailed sleeves. Whereas Emily had been smitten with an elegant gown, sporting a short train, a lace-bodice and finished with lace sleeves. Only Emily’s Mum had seen both dresses before the big day. The part of the day that struck me most was just before the ceremony. Lucy was waiting in the grand foyer outside the ceremony room for her blushing bride so they could walk down the aisle together. Lucy’s reaction to seeing her beautiful bride-to-be, Emily in her wedding dress is one that I will never forget. The two dresses were so different and yet complemented each other perfectly.
