LOVE // CHLOE & ANGUS

We could not help but share this beautiful wedding, which was recently featured on VOGUE.com.au.  "A relaxed vibe was the order of the day for the couple, who chose the idyllic Cotswolds to say 'I do'.  Chloe and Angus initially met as a groomsman and a bridesmaid at a mutual friend's wedding.  "It was all far too clichéd for me and I bolted in the opposite direction," recalled the bride.

The story of the wedding dress was not without a few dramas; after the Tzipporah dress initially made for the bride ended up being too short, Sippe had to contact stylist and designer Natasha Goldenberg and ended up receiving the new pieces from Russia the day before she left for the Cotswolds - now that is a close call!

The bride wore her grandmother's pearl and diamond earrings in her honour, "She was very special to me, and was sadly too ill to make it across to the UK from Sydney for the wedding," 

The inspiration behind the flowers came from a friend of the bride.  "She sent me this incredible image of an enormous mass of tall white roses in different sized vases, all grouped together. That image became my blueprint," said Sippe.

The bride and her father shared a moment just before they entered the church.  "Dad and I looked at each other and started laughing - I guess it was nerves. Instead of decorating the inside of the church with flowers at the wedding, the pair filled the space with candles, which created a warm and intimate atmosphere.

The food served at the reception evolved as organically as the planning; fresh heirloom tomatoes and basil with imported Italian burrata, followed by locally sourced lamb rump and then a deconstructed Eton mess for the cake."
