Natalie and Alex had a Game of Thrones themed wedding celebration at Notley Abbey on the 7th April, 2015
About the couple
Natalie and Alex met at Bodega Bar in Watford whilst Natalie was on a night out with the girls. After a whirlwind romance, Alex proposed down on one knee in Scotland at the top of Craigendarroch Hill overlooking the mountains. He had chosen a perfect engagement ring and asked if Natalie would make him the happiest man in the world. She, of course, said YES!
Natalie’s stunning wedding dress was designed by Sincerity and featured a sweetheart neckline and cap sleeves. Natalie teamed her gown up with an elegant veil featuring sparkly diamanté made and designed by Natalie’s mother-in-law. She also wore a pretty silver headband and a necklace from Tiffany & Co. bought by Alex and given to Natalie as a wedding gift. The bride also received a Pandora bracelet from a friend as a wedding present which she wore on the day. Her sparkly silver sandals were bought on the high street.
Natalie wore soft and subtle make-up on her wedding day and when it came to her wedding hair style she wore it up in a twisty plait, clipped with a silver headband; it looked simply gorgeous.
Natalie and Alex’s unique wedding theme was Henry VIII meets Game of thrones castle. Their inspiration and wedding ideas came from Game of Thrones, The Tudors, visits to stately homes and castles along with the one and only PINTEREST! Their wedding colour scheme was different shades of pink and sage green; perfect for a wedding in the spring.
The bridal party
Natalie chose four of her best friends to be bridesmaids and they each wore baby pink coloured dresses that the bride chose herself.
Alex wore a navy blue, slim fit suit with a waistcoat that matched, a pink tie and brown shoes. He also wore a silver pocket watch that Natalie bought him as a very special wedding day gift. Alex’s best man and ushers wore the same blue suit but without the waistcoat.
Natalie and Alex looked at three wedding venues in total when they were doing their search, as they were looking for the perfect venue due to their love of Henry V111 and history. They fell in love with Notley Abbey due to its history, grounds and beautiful barn. Plus, the fact that Bijou offered use of an online planner made organising a wedding fun and easy.
