Today I am thrilled to share this beautiful misty vintage inspired Winter Wedding with a House of Mooshki Dress.
Emma & Billy were married at the Mountains County House in Kent on the 15th of November 2014.
Mountains Country House, a magnificent 19th Century Grade II listed mansion set in acres of stunning Parkland in Hildenborough, Kent.
Images were captured by Laura Campion of Lollypop Photography.
Laura says of the couple and their day….
“Emma & Billy’s Misty Mountains Country House Winter Wedding was just lovely!”
“They had put so much effort into making so many of the decorations, from the Mr & Mrs signs to the table centres, that it all looked great together.”
“Billy and his groomsmen had very cool button holes, each sporting a star wars Lego man, Billy of course had Luke Skywalker.”
“Emma got ready at her Mum’s, but on-route to Mountains Country House they had a little problem.”
“It was raining quite heavily and as they were driving down the motorway, one of the wipers just flew off!”
“They solved the problem and just arrived a little later than expected.”
“But their luck changed as the weather turned sunny just as the ceremony ended and everyone could enjoy their drinks outside in the beautiful grounds.”
“Just before we were going into the marquee for the wedding breakfast, the most amazing mist rolled in over the fields at the front of the house.”
“It was so pretty that we couldn’t resist a few extra shots before dinner.”
“Adam from Adam’s Magic did a fabulous job of entertaining everyone all afternoon and also told us that he had been waiting for years to meet a William and Emma as they are the names of his kids and are tattooed on his arm.”
“The day just flew by and all the guests looked like they were having a blast (especially on the dance floor!). Before we left we did a little shot of the House lit up at night. Something you just can’t do in the summer.”
I now hand over to beautiful Bride Emma to tell the couples story…
How did you meet?
“We have mutual friends and kept bumping into each other on various nights out.”
“On one particular night out we started talking and found we had a shared interest in the same bands and had gone to the same festivals.”
“The next time we met and after way too much wine I made the first move and asked him out.”
“Our first meeting wasn’t particularly romantic and Billy confessed he was terrified of me but it worked out well in the end.”
When did you get engaged?
“Billy surprised me on my birthday nearly two years ago when he got down on one knee at the top of the Shard.”
Tell us about your wedding planning journey
“I knew straight away that I didn’t want a long engagement and wanted to get married as soon as we could.”
“We initially planned on a wedding overseas as we didn’t want to spend a lot of money and didn’t expect any financial help from our families.”
“We started to look at Greece and Cyprus as wedding options until our parents offered to contribute towards the funding to which we were both extremely grateful.”
“We are both pretty impulsive when it comes to making decisions and only viewed two venues prior to our venue, Mountains.”
“We instantly loved Mountains as it had a vintage interior and an outdoor marquee which was a blank canvas for us to make it our own and more importantly the venue was in our budget.”
“Once the venue was booked the rest flowed at a good speed, we knew what we wanted and what we didn’t. I discovered a lot of different blogs and pinterest was very helpful.”
When did you get married?
“We were married on 15th November 2014.”
What was the best bit of your day?
“Standing outside the room with my Dad and hearing the song that we had chosen for me to walk down the aisle was a really exciting moment for me, followed by seeing the look on Billy’s face when he saw me walking towards him.”
What advice would you give to couples getting married?
“Plot your route. Driving to the venue we got lost and then the wedding ribbon on the car ripped the wind screen wiper clean off, we had to stop and try and find it!”
“I was half an hour late arriving and the whole thing just made for a hilarious start to the day!”
“Don’t stress and enjoy every moment from start to finish, color schemes and matching accessories really don’t matter, what matters is that you are getting married.”
