Emily and Jonathan first met through Emily’s mother, who was a client of Jonathan’s business and the cupid who introduced the two lovebirds together.
From then on out the couple worked hard to maintain their growing relationship. “We built trust through being honest, and not being afraid to speak your mind – you have to be comfortable being yourself as you’re going to be spending a lot of time together!”
Their relationship eventually blossomed into something beautiful and Jonathan got down on one knee to pop the big question to Emily in the garden of London’s Goring Hotel.
When it came down to the finer details of the big day, Emily only had one dress in mind.
“I knew I wanted a Temperley dress, as I love her quintessentially British aesthetic. I only tried on 5 dresses and I knew I’d found the perfect one when my grandmother got so emotional!”
The wedding itself was traditional and ethereal, a picture perfect day for the bride and groom in Newton Hall. Emily’s vision for her wedding really came to life with the hard work of all the professionals and her trust in them left her with a magical night she would never forget.
“The day was perfect. If I could’ve wished for anything else, it’d be to have been able to enjoy it for longer. It all just went by too quickly!”
