A Pastel-Themed Stately Home Wedding with a Pronovias Gown

Take one Princess-style gown, sprinkle it with confetti, and add an elegant chignon, and you've got the recipe for a beautiful bride. Everything about this lovely shabby-chic wedding is romantic, from the white vintage car, to the incredible stately home venue, and the mint-green wedding cake. I've fallen head-over-hells for Heather's stunning Pronovias wedding dress - you'll want to add it to your must-try list. And her bridesmaids' strapless Coast dresses were a great buy! Enjoy these Getting Ready and Ceremony pictures by Firsthand Photography - look out for the inspiring Reception shots in Part 2, later today.

We celebrated our wedding at St Edmund's Church at Holme Pierrepont, with our reception next door at Holme Pierrepont Hall.

At the beginning, we didn't have a definitive theme, however it slowly developed with the help of online blogs. We explored lots of ideas, and created our own wedding scrapbook.

We ended up with a kind of rustic, traditional feel to the decorations. Pierrepont Hall is an amazing venue with beautiful gardens surrounding it, and we were really lucky that the weather held out.

I got my dress from Beautiful Brides in Nottingham, it was a Pronovias design which I still love!

I created our wedding invitations. Initially we sent out Save the Dates with an illustration of Holme Pierrepont Hall that Lee drew for me. I then designed the invitations, which were a collective set of cards - invitation, RSVP and directions / accommodation options. I tied them all together with some simple twine.

Lee wore a set of Ted Baker tails from Moss Bros. He added a silver-grey waistcoat and cravat, and a pink rose buttonhole.

My bridesmaids' outfits came from Coast. They were strapless, Grecian style gowns in mint green. They wore silver shoes, and they all had their hair up for the day.

Mrs Umbels was our wedding florist. They were absolutely fantastic - such a talent and very patient with us. Once we met Sarah in her little hut in the countryside, we knew she was the florist for us.

We chose lots of different pastel colours for our wedding colour palette, and they all came together beautifully.

We chose the traditional Wedding March for walking up the aisle, and our first dance was 'Grow Old with Me' by Tom Odell.

Our wedding photographer was Jack at Firsthand Photography. She was fantastic - we hardly knew she was there, and have had so many people comment on how great she was since our big day. 

Funnily enough Jack lives just around the corner from us, so she popped round one evening for an introduction, and we instantly felt at ease.
