A Vivienne Westwood Dress and a Paul Smith Suit – Finola and Stewart’s Intimate Family Wedding

Hello and welcome along to this fine Tuesday! Today I have an Intimate wedding for 24 brought to you courtesy of Jacqui McSweeney. I do love an intimate wedding, having had one myself (35 of us in total) I do appreciate the fact that with a smaller wedding you really do get to share it with all of your guests, no pressure to work the room, to miss anyone out! This wedding is cosy, warm and full of big smiles.

It’s the wedding of Finola Inger & Stewart Kendall who were married on 27th February at The Town Hall in Rye with the reception at The George in Rye with 24 guests. The couple have been together for 10. Finola and Stewart describe their day as ‘We wanted it to be a day with memories we will treasure forever, we wanted it to fun, relaxed and memorable’

Jacqui told me a bit more about the day
‘This whole wedding was very intimate. Finola and Stewarts little boy Flynn was very much included in the service. He and his Daddy met Finola at the door of the ceremony room and all 3 walked in together as a family which was beautiful. The town crier was a lovely touch, he walked the wedding party through the cobbled streets of Rye back to The George. At The George The party had an intimate meal gathered round one long table in The Benson suite.’


Finola wore a Vivienne Westwood dress and Stewart wore a Suit by Paul Smith

Potted bulbs and snow drops (Finola is a stylist and decorated the table herself on the morning of the wedding)

Personal touches
I think the whole wedding was quite DIY with a low key service and an intimate lunch for close family and friends

Make it as personal as possible, it’s your day
