Merry Christmas! Hope you’re having a wonderful time with your loved ones. Here at Confetti we have one last gift for you, and what a gift it is…this week’s Real Wedding!  Hanna and Billy, along with their closest friends and family travelled to Scotland for a picturesque humanist beach wedding. Julie Kim is the photographer we have to thank for giving us image after image of pure happiness. You can almost feel the cool breeze from the beach as you read through and the bond our couple have for each other and their guests is just heart warming. We really hope you enjoy Hanna and Billy’s wedding as much as we did.

Bride and Groom… Hanna and Billy

Wedding date… Saturday 3th September 2011

We met… While testing out the Carsten Höller slide exhibition at Tate Modern in 2007

The proposal… Billy proposed on the edge of Niagara Falls at sunset, during an epic 10,000 km road trip across Canada.

We knew it was ‘the one’… 10,000km together in a Car was a pretty good sign!

Length of engagement… 18 months

My dress was… A Caroline Castigliano dress. I chose it because I wanted something dramatic yet simple and understated. There was not a lot of fuss with the dress, just a simple but beautiful lace bodice and free flowing skirt. I felt that just because I got married on a rugged Scottish beach didn’t mean I had to wear a short and practical gown! I only went to 2 bridal shops with my mum and sister and tried on a total of about 10 dresses. I was pretty sure I wanted one of Caroline’s designs as her ‘made to measure service’ is second to none. The experience I had in the store, just confirmed to me that I was in good hands and the staff did everything they could over the course of that year to make sure I got the look I set out to achieve.
