Real wedding: A gold and dusty pink themed day with an Oleg Cassini wedding dress
Kat wore a gorgeous strapless wedding dress by Oleg Cassini, complemented with sky-high glittery wedding shoes. The metallic theme appeared elsewhere at the wedding too, with an impressive ombre wedding card postbox.
Kat designed the wedding stationery herself, creating chic, minimalist invites that wowed the guests.

The Hampshire wedding venue
Kat and Elliott held their wedding at grand venue <a href="https://www.hitched.co.uk/wedding-venues/the-elvetham_1050.htm" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">The Elvetham</a> in Hampshire.<br /><br />Kat had attended a Christmas party at the venue previously and was wowed by the beauty, so it was an obvious choice for their wedding. <br /><br />The English charm of the venue was also a deciding factor, due to Kat's German family coming over to celebrate. <br /><br />"Our German guests were able to experience some old English heritage," says Kat.<br />
The colour scheme
Kat and Elliott went for a rose gold and dusty pink colour scheme for their wedding day, decorating the ceremony chairs with chiffon chair sashes. <br /><br />"We wanted the theme to fit the style of the venue, and to look elegant," explains Kat. <br /><br /><a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/ideas/mood-boards/19-totally-pretty-rose-gold-wedding-ideas/21358.html" target="_self">READ MORE: 19 pretty rose gold wedding ideas</a>
Pink and white wedding flowers
"We opted for dusty pink flowers, accompanied by berries and greenery," explains Kat.<br /><br />"Our wedding was in October, but the colours were quite spring-like, so we wanted to marry together both seasons."<br /><br /><a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/planning/flowers/24-pretty-pink-wedding-bouquets/22909.html" target="_self">READ MORE: Pretty pink wedding bouquets for your big day</a>

The most memorable part of the day
"We absolutely loved every single second, it was the best day of our lives," says Kat.<br /><br />"What really stood out for us was the atmosphere – half the people were from Germany, the other half from the UK and they all got on so well and enjoyed the day with each other."
