Silvery frost and sparkle for Lyndsey and Ben’s, winter wonderland wedding…

An ivory rose arch mirrored the vaulted ceiling of Peckforton Castle’s Great Hall, the aisle, alternate wintery, bare branched trees and standard ivory rose bushes, twinkling candles lighting the path…

The gorgeous Peckforton Castle has been the location for films and TV, providing a medieval backdrop to Sherlock Holmes, Dr Who and Robin hood…It became the perfect location for Lindsay and Ben’s sumptuous winter wedding.

I just love this photo! So much happiness 🙂

But lets start at the begining…

lindsays wedding dress

Gorgeous lace Pronovias dress, sheer lace shoulders, moulding a fitted lace bodice, the tiny waist emphasised with a crystal applique… The skirt femininely skiming the hips then dramatically opening into a lavish fishtail skirt, with deep scallops of lace on a sheer base and stunning statement appliques.

Lindsay first contacted me in April, having seen a wedding garter we had custom made for Josie’s daughter…

Custom made for Josie cats charm wedding garter

This was made with two layers of cotton Nottingham lace, Lindsay was looking for something a little narrower, with more shimmer, to go with her sparkle wedding theme…

Custom made wedding garter for Lindsay

Again Lindsay chose Nottingham lace, but this was from a company who also made lace for Princess Diana’s wedding!

This fine ivory tulle is embroidered with shimmering rayon thread in flowers and loops, every scallop was set with a tiny clear crystal.

The two layers were brought together with a blue band, with scrolling embroidered leaves. At it’s centre a longtail bow and ‘snowflake’ style crystal, droping beneath was a silver sixpence, held in place by tiny sead beads.

Double layer lace tulle garter for Lindsay

Descreetly hidden inside, embroidered with a matching blue thread, was lindsay’s new married name…

I was amazed at how well the pattern in the layers of lace on the bridal garter, reflected the design of the lace in Lindsay’s wedding dress!

The wedding garter covered these ‘must haves’ from the traditional rhyme…

  • Something Old: The vintage 1967 silver, Elizabeth II sixpence, with it’s unique floral, design for the countries of the British Isles.
  • Something New: The wedding garter itself…
  • Something Blue: The highlights of blue ribbons, bows and embroidery… All secretly hidden beneath your dress.

Uncle Ben, here comes your bride…The aisle is strewn with a path of ivory rose petals, at the entrance a petal heart and their initials L B.
