A Black Tie + Scandi Inspired Barn Wedding

It happens in the early summer sunshine in the English countryside in a beautiful barn, and it is filled with luscious pastel peonies and roses, accents of gold, and a lot of softly flickering candles. The couple also took their inspiration from the bride's Scandinavian heritage, weaving it thoughtfully and elegantly with the day. Helene and Tom were married on 15 June 2018 at Chicester, occur beautifully landscaped gardens.

"We planned everything ourselves. I have a great adoration for interior and styling, therefore we knew just how we wanted it, but also the team in the venue was fantastic. Also my mum Gunn was helping me with the whole process and together I was the best team. She was always around the other side from the phone when I needed her for advice."

Helene's showstopping fishtail gown with intricate lace was chosen from the Australian label.

"The lace, body, the long train, it had been perfectly elegant and flattering."

Helene carried an ideal bouquet; a seasonal variety of huge peonies and garden roses in fresh shades of lemon yellow, white, and pale pink with a lot of lovely eucalypti.

Tom decided to wear a classic, smart black tie, having a suit from having a crisp white pocket square, as well as a rose gold watch and personalized gold cufflinks – both gifts from Helene. The Best Man and groomsmen wore complimentary black suits and ties, each having a personalized gold clip.

Helene have been traveling for 4 months together with her mum (who Tom says may be the coolest!) when she first met Tom in Thailand where he lived and worked at the time.

"Tom has been working with Norwegian people and funnily enough used some Norwegian pickup lines to talk me up! We had our first date around the beach then traveled back and forwards for any year between Norway and England to see one another, and the rest is history."

"Tom is extremely romantic and planned probably the most magical proposal which took him months. For my 25th birthday, he planned a secret trip. He required Dorset and booked us in a beautiful cottage (like something from my favorite film, The Holiday). He had made a video…of my friends and family in Norway wishing me a happy birthday – it had been quite overwhelming along with a complete surprise."

"He then added a tale of our journey to date into the video, showing all of our amazing memories. The video ended with Tom saying how excited he was that our journey is just beginning… Next thing I know I turn round, he's on a single knee and asks me to marry him!"

Helene's bridesmaids walked on the aisle first, wearing pretty blush pink maxi dresses with their very own footwear and rose gold earrings – gifts from Helene and Tom for that wedding day.

The couple exchanged their vows and rings and signed the register before a stunning floral display on the wooden frame decorated with softly billowing white curtains, made for them by florist Kimberley Walsh.

Following the ceremony, there have been fun and games in the sunshine, and Helene and Tom cut their wedding dresses cake, too. Danni made an amazing four-tier development of carrot cake with chocolate and caramel layers decorated with white icing and hand-painted gold detailing.

Words of Wedded Wisdom

"Don't get too swept up on small details, nobody notices them also it causes more stress than is required. Enjoy the process, we'd a great time planning and worked like a team to delegate different jobs and share the burden."
