Becca and Trev tied the knot at the stunning Shilstone House in Devon in July 2017.
We were lucky enough to work with Becca, providing a little touch of pink with gorgeous blooms throughout the day.

This wedding had it all – I mean seriously! The Groom arrived in a helicopter and their super lovely dog was a guest!! Mix that magic with lashings of classic sparkle, a stunning wedding venue and dance choreography – this was truly a perfect day!
Becca chose a gorgeous charcoal and blush colour scheme, which provided the perfect classic, elegant theme they were going for. There was also the hint of sparkle with Bridesmaids dresses and Brides shoes all twinkling throughout the day.
Shilstone House is set in the Devon countryside just a few miles outside of Ermington. Couples can marry outside or in, with either choice providing stunning views across the rolling hills. It is simply idyllic.

Becca chose Shilstone after visiting first with her Mum, before telling Trev that this was the venue she’d fallen in love with. Thankfully he agreed! and couple were lucky enough to snap up a date in just over a year.
‘From the moment we drove down the lane and got the first glimpse of the house, I knew that was where I would get married’ Becca tells us, ‘The availability was limited, but fortunately there was still a Saturday free, which happened to be our nieces 6th birthday, so extra special and double celebrations!’
As the day fast approached, Becca and Trev made sure that they planned plenty of unique parts to their day for them and their guests to enjoy.

Trev made a stylish entrance in a helicopter! Despite the uncertainty with the weather, and last minute will they/won’t they, Trev, his dad & brother made the journey together. ‘I think Trev was keen to get his feet back on solid ground though!’
We love that Busby, the couples chocolate labrador also made a guest appearance! As he had taken part in their engagement, it was only right he came along to the day. ‘He was bang on trend with his very own silver sequin bow tie!’ – Cute!!
The couple also made sure to include friends and family during the ceremony, asking their gorgeous niece to read a during the ceremony, and asking a dear friend to sing during the signing of the register. ‘My niece stole the show with her reading! and Dannie sang Songbird, her voice is incredible and people were blown away! There were lots of tears – including Trev!’

After the ceremony in Shilstone’s exquisite ‘Ceremony Barn’, the couple made their way to the marquee.
‘It looked better than we imagined!’ Becca tells us, ‘that first moment being announced as Husband and Wife and walking into the marquee to see all our friends and family was just amazing’
It took a moment for the couple to take in all the details ‘seeing the beautiful flowers, the hanging centre piece and the hydrangea was a particular favourite’.
Months of planning by the couple had certainly paid off, ’We had set up on the Friday but obviously this was before the place settings were laid and the flowers set, so there was always that element of surprise and anticipation about how it would look, but I couldn’t have been happier!’.
In the evening, Becca’s dance teacher choreographed an amazing routine for some light entertainment, ‘Carole, has taught me for about 30 years, she choreographed two routines for me and some of my dance friends to do in the evening.  A lot of my guests had never seen me dance before and I think everyone enjoyed it!  We danced to all that jazz and did a tap dance routine  to 42nd Street.  It was so much fun!’

Becca said she couldnt pick a favourite moment from the day, it was all just so perfect, ’I was on a complete high all day. I couldn’t have wished for anything more. Even the sun made an appearance in the evening after torrential rain the day before.
‘Seeing Trev at the end of the aisle was particularly special and I was overcome with so many emotions.  Our photographer Fiona captured this moment perfectly. Seeing all our friends and family together, having a good time and celebrating with us is something I will treasure forever. ‘

Now a happily married woman, we asked Becca her advice for anyone planning their wedding day.
1. Enjoy it! I miss the planning and wonder what I ever did with my time before having a wedding to organise.  It can get all consuming, but don’t let it spoil your day and all the build up. It’s true when they say that it goes by so quickly, so don’t fret and miss out on truly special times.
2. Go with what you and your fiancé want, everyone else’s views don’t matter – it’s your day.  Don’t have any regrets about things you wish you did/didn’t do, or people you should/shouldn’t invite.  Be happy with your decisions, and the day will go smoothly.
3. Talk to each other – you and your fiancé may not agree on everything but it is both of your day so ensure you both feel you have had an input. I think sometimes the Grooms feelings, views and opinions can get over looked.  Trev is not an organiser or planner and left the large majority to me to sort, but the key decisions we made together. I wanted to make sure nothing came as a surprise on the day and that he felt comfortable with everything so he could enjoy the day too.
We could not agree more! Huge thanks to Becca for sharing their perfect day with us, and you!
Here’s a list of all those who helped make it possible …
Cake:-  Trev’s Dad made our cake, it was delicious! It was extra special to have that family touch.
Photographer:- Fiona Walsh Photography. Fiona photographed my sisters wedding 7 years ago and the photos were amazing. We had kept in touch and Fiona had photographed some shows I had been in, so it was quite an easy decision to pick Fiona really!
Hair:-  Sara Lilley. I had so many compliments about my hair. it was exactly as I had hoped. My nieces loved their hair style so much  they even slept with it in!

Make up:- Lena Key Mua – this lady is amazing.  Lena did Carly’s (my bridesmaid) wedding where I was bridesmaid, so again, another easy decision.  lena understood the look I wanted, and we were all so pleased with the finished result.  Mum wears very little make up but she was so impressed and would love to have it done again, I think that says it all! I didn’t have to worry about touch ups, it lasted perfectly.
Dress:-  My dress was from the fabulous Wedding Company in Plympton. The dress is not at all what I had envisaged, but after being encouraged by my bridal party to try it, I knew as soon as I put it on that it was my dress. I felt a million dollars.

Bridesmaids dresses:- The girls bridesmaid dresses were from Amica and my little bridesmaids had tutus and leotards that I sourced from Etsy.
Flowers:- Hannah Burnett Florist
Suits:- Debenhams
Shoes:- House of Fraser. Given the size of my dress, my feet were unlikely to be seen! However I did still opt for some sparkles to keep in with the theme.
