A beautiful Essex Wedding at The Lawn with pretty navy and gold detail

Today I am thrilled to share this beautiful Essex Wedding with a Sophia Tolli Dress at The Lawn with pretty navy and gold detail.

Jenny and Joes day shines just like the celestial nature of its theme and has a natural elegance.

Images were captured by Julia and You Photography.

How did you meet?

It took a while!

I (Jenny) had spotted Joe at a party at university and thought he was rather good looking!

Turned out he knew one of my best friends and she promised to introduce me.

She did – two years later!!

The Engagement

We went away glamping for a weekend in Wales (Joe’s home country) to celebrate our anniversary.

We went for a walk up to a mountain called the Cat’s Back.

I wanted to call it off and we got lost three times, it hailed twice and I slipped over and was covered in mud.

But we eventually made it to the top where Joe went down on one knee.

Our Wedding planning journey

I really wanted to get married in the church my parent’s married in so everything was planned around the location of the church.

Theme/colour palette

The theme was the night sky – so the colours were dark blues, whites, silvers and golds.

We chose the night sky as Joe has always loved science fiction and I love astronomy and the night sky.

I used to look at the stars with my dad before he died so it felt like a way of including him.

What was the best bit of your day?

Joe – The first dance was really special.

Jenny – Looking from the top table at dinner and seeing all the people who mattered the most to us in one room.

What advice would you give to couples getting Married?

Accept you can’t control everything. If it’s what you want and makes you happy then that makes it a perfect wedding.
