The Bride's outfit
I had a 1950s inspired short dress with a train. It was Classic, elegant and suited the wedding to a tea.
The Groom's outfit
Military 1's. Traditional formal and smart not everyone has the chance to show off such attire and what a day to do it.
I had 9 bridesmaids, 6 adults and 3 children. The 6 girls were from all walks of my life, 2 sister in laws, 2 best friends from school and 2 best friends from University. They wore 1950s floral print dresses by Lady London Vintage, all in different in colours. The 3 younger bridesmaids were my nieces from Australia and my step daughter. They wore tutus made in Australia and floral capes made locally by a lady in Lymington.
Perfect in every way, un-rushed and beautiful. The staff at The Montagu Arms dressed the room to perfection with hand gathered flowers presented in glass vases, bunting hung and candles lit made for a very romantic atmosphere.
The staff and chefs could not have done anymore or gone out of there way anymore than they did. Not once did we have to ask for anything, things were done before we could even blink. The food is outstanding and served in a traditional manner.
Vintage styles, homemade bunting, made from lace and embroidered material by family members past. Cut glass vases filled with Spring flowers sat on wooden logs for the table decorations. We used an old suitcase for cards and a vintage singer sang for the reception, setting the atmosphere and scene perfectly.
How do you feel the day went
No words could describe how well the day went. It was perfect; an extremely happy day filled with family friends laughter and love. The whole team at The Montagu made our day special from the planning to the morning after; they went above and beyond expectation. We had people come from as far as Dubai and Australia who said they had never been to a wedding that was so well presented, organised and beautiful. We also have a little surprise who will be with us very soon...9 months from The day... xxx Thank you.
9 months and 2 days after their wedding, Katie and Jeanne had their first baby. They called him Montagu.
