WFML Real Bride: Aimee
There are many traditions that surround weddings yet in our experience, those who stray a little away from the norm and personalise their day tend to have a more enjoyable one. This was certainly true for WFML couple Aimee and Matt. The pair celebrated their big day atop Mount Sunday, a stunning location known for it’s inclusion as a backdrop of Lord of The Rings.
“I don’t think any day runs without a few slight hiccups but those mean nothing in the end – all I can remember is being so filled with happiness I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face!” recalls Aimee.
The couple wanted their vibrant personalities to shine through the ceremony whilst also keeping within a the themes of Autumn, vintage and goth, with some not so subtle nods to their favourite series Harry Potter. How sweet!
“We definitely didn’t go too traditional, which I am certain is clear with my choice of wedding gown. My dress fit my theme perfectly, I always wanted to get married in purple but keep my dress ‘traditional wedding dress’. In my head I always thought I’d have a big tulle gown with a corset style…that changed when Vanessa gave me a fit and flare style gown to try and I loved it!”
Aimee wore a bespoke version of our Isla Gown and chose to have the lace dyed purple.
“If I could wear my wedding gown every day for the rest of my life I would. It captured my personality and style so well it just felt natural to wear.”
The pair collaborated on Matt’s suit. Matt wanted to wear a three piece suit, which he did, and Aimee wanted him in all black with the matching purple tie, which she got!
“The ladies from WFML were great and super accommodating, I always felt like a special guest every time I visited Don’t let anyone tell you what you should or shouldn’t wear for your wedding day. It’s your day and you should let your creativity and imagination produce the dress you love. That’s what I did! The parts of our wedding that is most talked about and well remembered are the ones that were out of the ordinary and unique to us as a couple. We didn’t play by any rules and it was the best day of our lives!”
