They credit their amazing wedding to their planner
Katrina Otter, who broke the planning down into manageable sections and ensured everything was done in good time. “At no stage did it feel overwhelming, and we were able to relax and enjoy the process of planning our big day.”
Odette and Craig held their wedding at Chippenham Park in Cambridgeshire. Their wedding planner, Katrina, of Katrina Otter Weddings, suggested the venue and the couple knew it was the one as soon as they drove down the tree lined avenue.
Prior to their reception at Chippenham Park, the ceremony took place at St Mary’s Church in Bury St Edmunds. “It’s a very large church so if we’d decorated all of the pew ends, columns and windows we would have completely blow our budget!” says Odette. “Instead we focused on enhancing the intimate and romantic aspects and added candles and a statement pedestal urn.”
“Our wedding colours consisted of soft blush, peachy pinks, shades of white and touches of black with gold accents,” says Odette. “For me, this palette perfectly complement our venue, creating a timeless and romantic feel.”
The top table was decorated with pretty pink and white wedding flowers in gold vases atop a glittering rose gold table cloth.
Gold edged plates and place names gave the top table an extra glamorous feel.
We love these bride and groom chair signs.
The table numbers were purchased from Pudding Bridge and add an extra injection of glamour to the day.
Odette and Craig’s floral table plan by Friend of Faux stole the show on the day – imagine having this as a photo backdrop!
Inspired by a whole host of brides, from Kim Kardashian to Kate Middleton, Odette opted for this gorgeous long-sleeved wedding dress by Pronovias, named Princia. The dress has a mermaid skirt and a pretty sweetheart neckline. “Once I had decided on the dress, the rest of my look fell into place,” explains Odette. “I love the length of my hair so I knew I wanted it down.”
Craig looked dapper in a tailored white tuxedo, courtesy of Trotter & Deane. “My look was inspired by Odette’s Pinterest board named “white tuxedo jackets”,” admits Craig.
Craig and Odette hired florists Wild Poppies to create their vision. “We kept things as classic and consistent as possible, with peach, pale blush and crisp white and cream roses,” says Odette.
Odette and Craig didn’t want a traditional tiered wedding cake, instead opting for a masterpiece of cake pops and a traditional cake, covered in sequins and shimmering chocolate.
