Marianna + Ben | Bringing traditions together for a stylish blush wedding

Photographer: Amanda Forman Photography

A wedding full of stunning picturesque moments, bringing together two family traditions Marianna and Ben celebrated their wedding at Greetham Valley following a gorgeous service at Greetham church.

A colour scheme of gold, dove grey and rose pink was simply beautiful, all initially pulled together by Marianna's extensive research on Pinterest creating a 'dream' board which was presented to her amazing suppliers to help bring her vision to life through the styling of the big day. One of the starting points was translating the look into a bespoke stationary suite lovingly designed by In The Details, with a mix of pink and greys sat alongside floral elements, enclosed within a gold bellyband with a foiled monogram of the couple's initials. Of course there was the added challenge of creating a Hungarian version as well as the English for both evening and day guests. The monogram was incorporated on the day itself for a personal touch.

The day begun with bridal prep taking place at the Fox and Hounds in Exton, bringing the Bride tribe together made for a lovely morning of preparations and celebrations. A great team of multiple beautifiers pulled together and worked their magic on making the whole bridal party look amazing! Marianna's stunning dress was from - and oh wow what an amazing gown it was with its intricate lace. It was customised with the addition of a big volume overskirt which Marianna had dreamt of, later removed after the service for a completely different look. A second red dress for the evening marked Marianna's family Hungarian traditions and made a lovely impact for the evening. With Jimmy Choo's being the shoe of choice and aren't they simply gorgeous! If you can't have Choo's on your wedding day when can you!

Their amazing florist flew over from Hungary to make the truly unique bouquet and flower arrangements for the day, featuring orchids and roses. The flowers made such a statement thought the day from the pillars decorating the church entrance to the table centrepieces. What an impact they made!

Ben's family car business is well known across Rutland, so what a better excuse than to include some amazing cars in their big day including a Maserati for the bridal car and an Aston Martin DB11 for the wedding car. Making a stylish arrival for the couple..

Stealing a moment after the ceremony the newlyweds escaped for photos at the beautiful Barnsdale Gardens, it was full of such pretty florals and greenery, making it perfect for some intimate photos. Which we're sure you agree are insta-perfect!

The day was lovingly packed with special details and moments, the brides father being Hungarian passed his speech to Marianna's adopted grandad to be read out in English, and to honour her thanks to her father Marianna included a traditional father daughter dance, making it truly special. Day features included personalised bridal team hangers, a memory wall and photo booth area, along with Hungarian favours which were a traditional aperitif, which we're sure went down well with their guests!

Enough of us telling us you all about it now, as the saying goes the pictures speak for themselves. Congratulations Marianna and Ben!
