Beautiful rainbow of coloured petticoats at Emily & Jack’s fun-filled wedding…

Through the eyes of the bride herself who wore scrumptious layered coloured petticoats from Doris Designs on her big day…

“We had our Wedding in Hawkshead, The Lakes, because we had many happy memories tied to the area. We had the ceremony in St Michael and All Angels Church and used the beautiful market hall (which we heavily covered in glitter!).

Our wedding was a very hand made colourful fun event! My mum made my wedding dress and my three bridesmaids dresses. We wore Doris petticoats to tie the beautiful colours together and throughly enjoyed dancing spinning and whirling in through the fields and the dance floor in them!

My lovely hair and make up was by Maureen Walsh, the photographs are by Tiree Dawson Photography (a very fun Lake District photographer). The fab bright flowers are by Lily Lou’s Ambleside and bright balloons by Balloons in the Lakes.

My lovely ladies twirling in the field in their vintage petticoat dresses. I wore a fuchsia pink petticoat layered with an aquamarine blue petticoat. My bridesmaids wore bluebell purple petticoat, orange petticoat and an aquamarine blue petticoat.”

Wow! What a super-fun filled colourful wedding with no detail left untouched. Emily and Jack’s wedding is certainly a unique one. You can’t help but have a huge smile browsing the photos – I certainly wanted to jump right in and join in the fun with all the twirling in the field. Thank you for sharing Emily.
