We were completely spellbound by Claire and Kev's beautiful summer wedding at the Albright Hussey Manor Hotel; a magnificent Tudor country home with a moat and glorious landscaped gardens just outside Shrewsbury, Shropshire.
Owner, Paul Sabbini, gave Claire a wonderful piece of advice just before her wedding "He told me to stop at the end of the aisle and just look and take it all in, I'm so glad he told me this as I will remember that moment forever."
The Albright Hussey Manor Hotel
Claire and Kev's wedding was a real family celebration bursting with love and emotion on all levels. Talented photographer Matthew Everington from Backlash Photography captured the soft tender moments perfectly; I love how he shows Claire as not only a beautiful bride but mother, daughter and partner too.Backlash Photography
Bridal Jewellery and Bridal Headpiece
Claire found her stunning Romantica 'Sapphire' wedding dress at Trisha's in Oswestry; which she highly recommends for their very personal service. The beautiful soft tulle overlay and hint of vintage styling with the pretty lace embellishment on her bridal gown was utterly gorgeous.
Claire was looking for a pearl bridal headband with a delicate scattering of diamante and sparkle to go with her wedding dress. She immediately fell in love with the Chloe headband when she visited me for an accessory styling appointment. To complete her elegant bridal look she added a Charlotte Necklace with a matching Charlotte Bracelet and a pair of Olivia Earrings.
"My jewellery and accessories were definitely the best x"
Claire asked us to make two smaller Charlotte Bracelets for her bridesmaids so they were the same as 'Mummy' and had keepsakes of the wedding. This is such a touching thing to do and the little girls were thrilled with their bracelets.
Aren't Claire's two bridesmaids utterly cute and adorable? Her young daughters looked so pretty in their soft dusky pink floaty bridesmaid dresses with delicate chiffon rose detailing which was also on their matching shoes and headbands.
Bride's Top Tip
With the summer having been one of the wettest on record Claire had been worried about a rainy wedding and we love her top tip to other B2Bs planning their own weddings. "Don't stress about things ... the day will be perfect whatever happens, I got caught up stressing about the weather when there was nothing I could do about it, in the end the sun was shining for the outdoor ceremony and even though there was a heavy thunderstorm later it really didn't matter."
Everything about Claire and Kev's beautiful summer wedding is just perfect; we love all the little details. Thank you for allowing us to share your wonderful wedding and we wish you a long and happy life together as Mr and Mrs.
