Real Brides: Amy

We've recently been in touch with Amy, another one of our lovely brides, to catch up on how her wedding day at Hogarths Hotel, Solihull went!

Opting for the gorgeous Hogarths Hotel to celebrate their big day, most of their wedding needs were planned and provided by the venue itself, making planning a little easier for the happy couple. With the big things under control, this couple took the smaller details into their own hands and opted for a DIY approach. This is a trend we are seeing more and more of with many brides nowadays taking the same approach, drawing their inspirations from things like Pinterest which provide different ideas for those that want a more hands on approach to their wedding. Not only does this help to keep those ever growing wedding costs down, but also allows a truely personal touch to your wedding celebration.

Amy made a grand entrance in a vintage style lace, Benjamin Roberts 2707 wedding dress but decided to have our seamstress customise her gown by removing the train, to give the dress more of a glamourous evening gown look, and we think she pulled it off perfectly!

Amy and James decided not to hire a photograpger and instead opted to utilise the photography skills of the guests at their wedding. This allowed them to create a really personal collection of images from all parts of their celebration and to get some lovely, intimate shots of their day.
