Thomas and Emily’s Pretty Pastel Gaynes Park Wedding by Ilaria Petrucci

As we reach the mid-point of the week, I am already looking forward to the weekend, how about you? Today we are heading across to Essex for this beautiful Gaynes Park Wedding, courtesy of Ilaria Petrucci. Emily and Thomas chose a pretty pastel theme for their day, mixed in with a few bohemian accents and the results are this gorgeous, laid back day filled with amazing flowers and pretty details. I just love Emily’s hair at the end of the day, her flowing blond locks look amazing against the low sunlight.

The best day of our lives. Everything we’d ever dreamed of!

Emily and Thomas were married on the 26th March 2017 at Gaynes Park in Essex. ‘We loved the fact it was all in one place but in different locations. The wedding in the orangery, the reception in the mill Barn and then the evening food in the gather barn. We also both loved the accommodation and the beautiful long walk and walled gardens. It was everything all rolled into one. We had 78 guests and the wedding took 16 months to plan.’

Ask the Experts: 10 Wedding Myths Busted from Carmela Weddings

In a digital world where there is information flying at your from all angles, it’s easy to get confused or overwhelmed with what to expect about your wedding. The dos and don’ts, should and must haves are always different for people and so there are lots of opinions to wade through whilst doing your research! So today, we have invited one of our in-house wedding experts to shed some light and do some myth busting! Carmela Weddings are here this afternoon with some absolutely brilliant advice, so make sure you read this before getting carried away elsewhere!

Whether you’ve just bagged the bling or if you’re in the middle of wedding planning, you’ll discover tonnes of wedding myths that can leave you feeling overwhelmed, out-of-depth or downright confused. But don’t fret, ladies! We’re here to debunk those wedding myths so that you can get on with planning your wedding day, your way…

  1. 1) One of the most common wedding myths is that you’ll cry, a lot. From the moment you get engaged, choose your wedding dress or even as you walk down the aisle, it seems that people expect you to cry! But don’t worry if you don’t – it doesn’t mean you’ve got cold feet or that your heart’s not in it. It just means that you deal with it differently. Many bridal boutiques say you know you’ve found the perfect dress when you can’t stop smiling, looking in the mirror or twirling around!

2) Many people say that one year is the perfect amount of time to plan your wedding day, but in reality, there is no ideal amount of time to plan your wedding nor is there the right amount of money to spend – you’ve got to do what suits you!

3) On the other hand, you’ll hear lots of people saying “It’s your day”. While it definitely is your day, and it should reflect both you and your hubby or wife-to-be, make sure you take into account your friends and family. Many guests will be travelling hundreds of miles and forking out money for accommodation and new outfits, because they want to spend the day celebrating with you. So, consider timings, food and entertainment when it comes to your guests to ensure they’re happy.
