Ellen and Ben’s Packington Moor wedding is going to blow you away. Firstly, just look at Ellen’s Maggie Sottero dress – wow! Then there are the shoes, oh the Jenny Packham shoes! We also adore the soft pink embellished bridesmaid dresses that really complement Ellen’s stunning wedding dress. Ben and the groomsmen are rather dapper in their Moss Bros suits with traditional tails too.
Ok, well if you think the bridal attire is amazing, how about the styling details… this wedding is so pretty. From the fabulous flowers and pretty floral ceremony arch, to the elegant wedding cake and seating plan.
Everything about this wedding oozes romance and elegance. You are going to love these beautiful pictures by Helen Howard Photography.
A Romantic Proposal
“When Ben proposed I was in the Bahamas completing medical school training. I was extremely homesick and missing Ben desperately. He kindly booked me in to a lovely hotel for a weekend to allow me to escape the dreadful accommodation I had been staying in.
“Before dawn on the first night I was at the hotel I was woken by a room boy who was very insistently banging on my door to deliver a card. The card told me to go down to the jetty. So after pulling on a dress I ran down to the jetty to find Ben. He had secretly flown over to the Bahamas and was waiting as the sun came up over the sea to propose. He stayed for only 36hours before flying back to the UK.”
Timeless With No Regrets
“We didn’t plan on having a wedding theme, but we knew we wanted our wedding to be timeless. We didn’t want to regret anything on the pictures when we showed our grandchildren in fifty years’ time.
“As time went on, and my dress had been chosen, a subtle 1920’s theme came through with the typeface on the table plan and place settings. In terms of colours we stuck to classic ivory and blush pink, which again felt timeless and pretty.”
“For my birthday Ben took me to Floris, a London perfumery where we spent a wonderful afternoon creating a bespoke fragrance which I wore for the first time on the wedding day. It is so lovely to wear it now as it brings back all of the wonderful memories of our day.”
