WPC Real Wedding: A Midsummer Night’s Dream inspired Norfolk Wedding

WPC couple Freddie and Sophy share their stunning wedding in Norfolk, full of whimsical detail inspired by A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Freddie and Sophy Bouverat let us into their stunning wedding in Norfolk

Sticking to tradition, Sophy's something old was her great grandmother's diamond tiara. The timeless design sat beautifully against Sophy's soft half-up hair.  Her something new was her elegant wedding dress and her something borrowed was her diamond necklace which was loaned by Freddie's great grandmother, the perfect partner to that diamond tiara. Finally, her something blue were the sapphires in her gorgeous engagement ring. 

In keeping with their magical Midsummer Night Dream theme, gorgeous country flowers were woven into the bridesmaids hair with a gentle jasmine trail, and perfectly complimented the girl's soft curls. 

Sophy's couture dress was made in Italy by Le Spose Di Gio. It was clasically elegant with stunning detail and structure. Her bouquet made lovingly crafted by her cousin and included a sentimental touch of myrtle, to bring good luck.

Mr & Mrs Bouverat leave their country church. We love how beautifully Sophy's dress falls, and Freddie looks incredibly dapper in his traditional morning suit. A look of pure happiness! 

Sophy's stunning bridesmaids wore beautiful bridesmaids dresses from J Crew in a stunning pale sage colour - the perfect choice for a summer garden wedding. Her flower girls and pageboys wore bespoke outfits all designed by Sophy, and made my a local seamstress in Norfolk. 

The reception was held at Sophy's family home, and guests rambled back through the village to the reception from the church service. 

Taking further inspiration from A Midsummer Night's Dream, the reception marquee had a gorgeous clear roof to allow the summer light to flood in, as well as keeping the idea of always being amongst nature. A statement urn with breathtaking flowing, romantic flowers acted as a centrepiece. 

Sophy really showed off her creative skills when it came to decorating the main marquee. Sticking to her theme, she incorporated seasonal wild flowers in abundance via her amazing Florist Mock Orange Flowers with banks of moss along the long banquet tables and suspended ladders laden with fern and flowers.

Locally foraged shells were also incorporated into the marquee decor as a nod to the nearby Norfolk coast. Place names were hand written on the inside of oyster shells. For the table names Tintin characters were used as a nod to the couple's favourite cartoon.

Their incredible wedding cake was lovingly made by Sophy and her mother the weekend after Sophy got engaged. It was a traditional fruit cake decorated with the family dogs and Tintin characters. All of the couple's favourites! 

Sophy and Freddie surely win the coolest wedding car award, choosing to exit their reception in the own 1966 Ford Mustang GT, covered in homemade decorations. We couldn't love this anymore if we tried!
