Love Story

Natassja, a lawyer, and Conrad, an airline pilot, married in their local village church, Cuckfield, West Sussex on 2 June 2018, having a summertime reception afterward within the grand but relaxed setting of, Horsham. Their day would be a true summer celebration, having a classic English countryside theme along with a dainty color pattern of blush pink, white, and silver. Just divine. The couple met in 2013, and despite a preliminary attraction producing a happy ‘swipe right, their relationship was slow to begin.

“We went for white and blushed pink flowers to choose our color theme. I love peonies so chose white peonies; our florist said hello and was touch and go on whether they would be accessible at this time of the year and luckily these were, coupled with pale blush pink sweet avalanche roses and deeper pink Miranda David Austin roses (for that bouquets).”

I love the elegant, pure lines flow of their skirt using the illusion, appliquéed bodice and shoulder detail – so modern and sexy having a timeless vibe that’s so special.

“I saw the lace wedding dress in the shop window and instantly fell deeply in love with it. It was precisely what I had pictured wearing; sleek, figure-hugging, classy, delicate lace detail around the bust along with a long train. When I used it on I felt so comfortable inside it and it just felt enjoy it was made for me.”

Natassja’s selection of blush pink for the bridesmaid dresses is really elegant; they wore floor-length halterneck gowns, worn using their shoes along with pearl or silver earrings.

“We always wanted a church wedding and ideally a reception venue under fifteen minutes away and fell deeply in love with it when we visited it. The grounds are stunning and also the staff amazing therefore it was instantly sold to us. We have stayed at Pennyhill Park Spa Hotel, South Lodge’s sister hotel, numerous times and like it, so knew whether it was anything such as this it wouldn’t disappoint.”

“The moment whenever we walked in the aisle and out from the church as a couple with all our guests cheering and also the bells ringing stands out as a moment which will forever possess a place in my heart. The sun arrived on the scene in full force just once we stepped outside also it was wonderful, it was precisely what I had hoped and pictured. Also away from church whenever we did the confetti walk, you can just feel all of the love from your guests.”

“We provided miniature bottles from a nearby homemade liqueur maker near us which I sampled at the Wealden Country Fair. We had alternating elderflower gin and blackberry vodka bottles, which I have been advised transpired very well. We had tags made saying ‘we tied the knot, now have a shot, and for that non-alcohol drinkers gave heart chocolates.”

The newlyweds began their wedded life together in splendid style, by having an evening packed full of entertainment.

Words of Wedded Wisdom

“Try and revel in every bit of planning and don’t wish it away, even when your wedding feels as though ages away. I remember thinking in the start I wish the wedding would be quick and I just couldn’t watch for it, but attempt to enjoy all of the planning because that’s a part of it so when it’s over you will likely miss that.”
