WPC Real Wedding: An English Country Wedding for Eddie and Celina

Eddie and Celina held a stunning wedding in the Kent countryside, full of unique and creative DIY decor.

Rustic, pretty and informal, we love this beautiful Kent country wedding.

Celina's stunning full-lace wedding dress was made by a local seamstress Angela Webber. Celina designed the dress herself and sourced her lace from Berwick Street, London to create a truly one of a kind dress that was her 'Something New'. Her veil was a family heirloom from her mother's side of the family and is over 200 years old, making it the perfect 'Something Old'. Her 'Something Borrowed' was a stunning diamond necklace lovingly loaned to her by her mother. Finally her 'Something Blue' was her beautiful sapphire engagement ring which Eddie designed himself with the help of bespoke London jeweller Kinvara Law

Celina's theme was 'country wedding' with blue being her underlying colour theme. A hint of blue in her gorgeous bouquet beatifully complimented the bridemaid's lovely duck egg blue dresses, lonvingly handmade by Celina's mother. 

Celina and Eddie were married in their local church, the same church Celina's sister was married in a few years beforehand. 

Their reception was held back at the bride's family home, with a stunning marquee in the garden. Celina continued her blue theme in the marquee with striking chinoiserie fabric tableclothes adorning her banquet style tables. The table tops were decorated with various pots, vases and candlesticks all sourced by Celina from local car boot sales, filled with gypsophelia, white roses and daises by Celina and her bridesmaids. Height was added via an eclectic mix of candle stick holders and ivory taper candles. Guests place names were miniature terracotta pots planted with pansies and painted with blackboard paint for the name place. A truly unique idea that also served as a lovely favour for guests to take home.

A truly unique seating plan, Eddie and Celina spent house sourcing individual pictures of every guest and printing them out as a polaroid, which they then attached to an antique tractor using magnetic tape. Another wonderful keepsake for guests to take home, and an ingenius way to make use of the tractor! 

Celina's grandmother made her wedding cake, sticking to tradition with a classic fruitcake. They have saved the top tier of their cake to be used at their first born's christening, a lovely tradition. 

Arriving to their reception in style, Eddie drove himself and his stunning bride into the marquee in the 1950's antique Fiat 500 - talk about making an entrance!

The dancefloor was never empty, thanks to incredible wedding band 29 Fingers. Famed for their energetic and interactive performances, 29 Fingers are a firm WPC favourite!
