Shades of Pink, A Romantic Church Wedding: Claire & Joe
We married at St John’s Church in Buckhurst Hill, Essex. We chose this venue as this is the Church we attend weekly. It is also where we both met.

Lace Wedding Dress
My dress was by Kelsey Rose Official via Betty McCaul Bridal in Enfield. I loved the lace and low back feature of the dress. For an October wedding, I chose sleeves as I wasn’t sure what weather to expect (we ended up having heavy rain from start to finish!)
I told my florist Lyndsey that I liked a ‘wild’ look for the wedding bouquets and my theme was all different shades of pink. Other than that, I trusted her to create beautiful bouquets! We had x2 bouquets at the front of the church and then each had a bouquet for walking down the aisle. She also made button holes for the groomsmen and groom.
I walked down the aisle with my dad to my husband’s favourite music from a movie soundtrack. Seeing everyone I loved in one place and my future husband standing there waiting for me was such a memorable moment.
Our wedding colour scheme was all shades of pink and my bridesmaids wore dresses from JJ House in Mulberry, Cinnamon Rose and Dusty Rose.
Hannah Larkin was our wedding photographer – she was absolutely amazing. Very thorough and was a very calm presence throughout the wedding! I don’t like having my picture taken usually and Hannah made me feel very at ease!
Words of Wisdom
When we felt behind on planning or overwhelmed by the amount to do (as we had 3 months to plan ours), we reminded ourselves that as long as we have a venue and that people are fed on the day, it will be fine!
What a super sweet couple. Congrats Claire & Joe and thank you for sharing your romantic church wedding with WTW!
