Have you fallen in love with a dress before you've even confirmed the venue? If so you're not alone. Tamzin and Karl are a couple from Doncaster, South Yorkshire who have 2 beautiful daughters. There wedding was 2 years in the planning and had a romantic, girly feeling which was based on Tamzin's princess style dress that she purchased from Be Envied Bridal Wear. Building a theme around the style of a dress is an unusual way of doing things but as Tamzin shows us, it can tie together elements of your wedding and give focus to your choices.

With a Princess style dress Tamzin chose soft, pastel pink and grey tones that flowed through the flowers, bridesmaid dresses, cake and gentle hues in Tamzin's make up.



Tamzin chose statement Vivienne Westwood shoes as a bold design choice beneath her princess dress. Bold shoes have definitely been a huge statement feature for brides over the last couple of years. Her daughters carried flower wands designed by Emma at Ruffles Bouquets, a simple nod to the Princess theme and wore dresses from Next.



Thornhurst Manor is a countryside wedding venue in Doncaster. The outside space comprising of private wedding grounds, romantic bridge and wooden gazebo alongside a child friendly atmosphere ensured it became Tamzin's number one choice. They catered beautifully to Tamzin's theme with a full decor package including twinkling light curtain, tall elegant vases, glamorous sequinned table runners and mirrored centre pieces. This was all brought together by the outstanding work of Fondant and Frills. The cake, which incorporated sparkles with soft, romantic tones tied together Tamzin's ideas beautifully.



Tamzin and Karl enjoyed beautiful, sunny weather for their special day and as a result, the majority of the time was spent enjoying the vast outdoor space. Tyson Cars provided traditional cars to the venue for the bridesmaids, Tamzin and her father. Karl and his five groomsmen, decked out in Jeff Banks attire of soft grey and pink, waited patiently for their arrival. The heat of the afternoon sun meant that many of the photographs were taken in the early evening, giving a warm glow to the images which I feel compliments the whole day.



A huge congratulations to Tamzin and Karl. It was a really beautiful day form start to finish. Tamzin's soft, romantic Princess theme certainly fitted the countryside venue and heat of the day.

A big thank you to Tamzin and Karl for having me. Lisa x
