Zoe & Ed’s chic 1930s-style affair
Zoe and I sit next to each other at work and planned our weddings at the same time. It might sound like a recipe for disaster, but it was actually really nice to share all the ups and downs of planning with someone who knew exactly what I was going through. We have very similar tastes (our venues were both lovely country hotels, and we both wanted a fairly timeless green and white colour scheme). Zoe chose a really striking gown from edgy fashion designer Sarah Arnett, and wore the most gorgeous shoes and sparkly hairpin from Emmy Shoes. Her outfit suited her down to the ground and gave the day an injection of 1930s glamour.
I loved the way she added splashes of pink throughout, from the floral cake and cookies by Zoe Clark Cakes to the ornate Japanese paper used for the stationery and confetti cones (for similar, try Falkiners). It took some persuasion to get Ed to wear a matching pink tie (he had his heart set on a completely different shade), but I think he looked very dapper indeed. Even the rain couldn’t put a dampener on the day: the pink and green floral umbrellas provided by Zoe’s photographer Lisa Devlin looked amazing in the photos and added a really fun element. I love the the pretty tin birds, too – buy yours from Oliver Bonas. Venue: Newick Park, East Sussex
