The romance of the countryside is felt in every one of Daisy and Matt’s wedding day photos. It didn’t hurt that they chose a stunning estate to host their nuptials, complete with an ancient chapel. Daisy’s wedding gown — a lace Berta Bridal gown with a structured peplum — was the perfect match for such an elegant venue. We love the way they included their wedding guests in their vows, as well. Such a personal addition to an emotional event.
Daisy + Matt | September 14, 2014 | Somerset, United Kingdom | Dress Listing: Berta Bridal 13-88
The Ceremony Our ceremony was set in a candle lit, flower filled 15th century stone chapel, led by our close friend Chris. We wrote our own heartfelt vows and had loved ones recite their experiences in marriage — a dear friend married five years spoke of the importance of laying solid foundations. Matt’s grandfather, happily married and in love for the past 65 years explained how to succeed decade upon decade.
The Reception We then had cocktails & canapes on the terrace, overlooking the estate’s lake and countryside, before dining in the beautifully adorned manor house’s ballroom. There we had a delicious four-course meal, laughed and cried at incredible speeches and then moved to the Orangery where we danced all night while binging from the sweet cart and devoured our wedding macarons.
Daisy’s Dress Search I tried on countless dresses and evening gowns, because I wanted something truly special; a dress that made me feel like the most beautiful me I could be. In truth, my heart was set on my gorgeous Berta dress, well before I tried on any other! I’d spied it on Pinterest and then hunted down a stockist in Toronto, Canada where we were living at the time. After securing my spot at their Berta Bridal trunk show I begged them to bring over a sample of my dress, but unfortunately it wasn’t included in the touring range coming to Canada. When I tried on their other gowns, I fell in love with the label, but my mind could not move past that first dress. So, much like the bride that will one day wear my dress, I took a chance, followed my heart and I ordered my dress without trying it on or seeing it in person … I just knew.
How Daisy Felt in Her Wedding Dress Glamorous, elegant and sexy.
Why Daisy Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress My decision to sell my dress was made simply because it’s far too beautiful and unique a style to be locked away! I met my husband online (thanks match.com) and picked my dress online, so it only seems fitting that another bride should find and love my Berta Bridal gown online.
