A Backless Gown, Infusing Greek, and Portuguese Style

Meet our couple, Sally, who works best for EY, taking care of one of their graduate programs, and Zac, who works best for the Bank of England. They were married on 26 May 2018 in Frensham, Surrey; a beautifully restored barn venue having a light, contemporary feel.

"We chose to style the marriage around our heritage. Although greatly born and raised in London, Zac is half Greek and half Portuguese, therefore we had elements to entwine this, alongside my super English heritage! This featured throughout our stationery suite, with Greek olive branches, Portuguese tiles, and English peonies."

Sally finds the old Hollywood glamour in the backless, cowl neck 'Iona' dress, together with having a simple, classic veil. I love the facts on this dress – elegant, subtle Art Deco scalloped detailing in the waist and back.

"It was beautiful! I didn't think I'd choose something so slinky; I had plenty of lace in my mind, however, it just felt so right when I used it on. The open back, the incredible fit, and also the delicate detailing were all just perfect."

The bridesmaid dresses wore the aptly named 'Mykonos' dress, inside a concrete shade, through the brilliant.

Loved ones gathered within the garden at Millbridge Court, to have an outdoor ceremony in front of the venue's lovely, rustic arbor adorned with flowers and foliage.

Sally and her dad walked down the aisle together, towards the classical piece, Canon in D by Pachelbel, among several favorite moments of the day.

"Even though I was breathing heavily and nervous, it had been just the most incredible moment, holding my father close, and seeing my husband-to-be smiling wider than in the past."

"Zac and I met around the graduate scheme that I now help run in September 2011. We're both proper Londoners who bonded over tequila and indie music; a workplace romance, which grew legs quickly. He proposed within the September of 2016 whilst in Devon, overlooking the sea on the clifftop walk."

Everyone enjoyed drinks outside in the sunshine, following a ceremony, with live acoustic music from the trio. This was another favorite part of a brilliant day for Sally and Zac.

"The drinks reception – it was the bit I was mostly getting excited about, also it was brilliant. Wandering Hands were so entertaining and moved about our guests, fulfilling their requests. Lots of congratulations, hugs, and bubbles."

After an excellent meal, and touching speeches, a cocktail hour had arrived. Sally and Zac each had 'his and hers' cocktails for family members to enjoy – pomegranate fizz for Sally, and rum Old Fashioned for Zac.

"Our first dance was Eric Clapton – Wonderful Tonight. We just like it, also it's meant a lot to us for a long time. My uncle also loves Clapton, and my uncle means a lot to me, so it had been a little extra nod to him, that they loved."

Cocktails were followed by lots of dancing, with DJ getting everybody up and to the dancefloor.

"Being carried off towards the lodge at the end of the evening was another favorite moment – and achieving leftover cake within the roll-top bath before the early hours."

Words of Wedded Wisdom

"About doing things differently – the only real tiny thing I'd change is fitting in throwing the bouquet. Time flew by and we missed it. Otherwise, it had been perfection!"
