This week we’re sharing Elena and Peter’s Real Wedding by Studio Without Walls. Elena is definitely our type of bride, not only was she inspired by our work, which brought a smile to our faces, but she also designed her own dress. Picking what she liked from different dresses and creating one that is unique just like her is a stroke of genius. We’re also very impressed with the monochrome theme. It’s clear to see the black and white theme added sophistication and elegance to their big day, something the guests will always remember. Enjoy!
Bride and Groom… Elena & Peter
Wedding date… Sunday 25th August 2013
We met… In 2008 at my leaving do, I was moving to Cyprus. We stayed in contact and became friends while I was abroad. In 2010 I moved back to London and we started to spend more time together. After a few months things started to change and the casual social gatherings turned into dates.
The proposal… He took me to London Bridge where we walked alongside the Thames. He was acting quite nervous and after a while he plucked up the courage and got down on one knee.
Length of engagement… 18 months
How did Confetti.co.uk help in your big day? It helped me to choose my theme and got some unusual ideas.
My dress was… Tailor made. I struggled to find a dress that I liked; there was always something not right about the dresses I tried on. I visited a number of different shops with my mum, by the end of it I was fed up. I decided to take bits off different dresses that I liked and have the dress made for me. I was nervous each time I went for a fitting wondering if I had made the right decision, but I’m glad I did it. I also got my bridesmaid dresses made as I wanted something unusual and different.
Our bridesmaids were… 4 of my closet cousins and friends.
