Dan & Gemma’s Wedding At The Grasshopper Inn
Hey Folks! Today’s blog is all about Gemma and Dan’s Rustic Wedding day which was held at The Grasshopper Inn, Westerham.
Gemma and Dan went for a shabby chic/rustic feel with lots of hessian and lace used throughout their day. To add an extra personal touch, they decorated jam jars, handmade their invitations and name place cards.
‘We got married at The Grasshopper Inn in Westerham.We chose this venue before it was the first one we had seen that we both liked and could see ourselves getting married there. We loved the tudor style which was perfect for the intimate wedding we wanted.
‘ Gemma and Dan chose grape purple, cream and pastel pink as their main colours. For their flowers they had pale pink and cream roses, dark lisyanthus and cream Colombian hydrangeas. The button holes were purples spray roses.
Gemma’s dress was a strapless ivory fishtail dress which was covered in lace. From the waist down there was a layer over the top which was embellished with lace around the bottom. Gemma loved how completely different it was compared to anything else she’d tried, and it immediately made her cry which she knew was probably a good sign! To complete her bridal outfit, Gemma’s hair was curled with half of it pinned back using a sparkly and pearl clip. Make up was kept fairly natural as she’s not a huge make up wearer day to day, so didn’t want anything too drastic that wasn’t ‘her’.
The bridesmaids wore grape purple, floor length dresses with one shoulder strap, accompanied by gold strappy heels and gold/pearl bracelet and earring sets. The Groomsmen wore navy suits, with grape ties and pocket squares to match the bridesmaids. The Groom wore the same but with a waistcoat, which made him stand out against the others.
‘The whole day was perfect, we couldn’t have asked for a better day. It was full of happiness and laughter and we want to do it all over again. Truly the best day of our lives! There are loads of memories we could share with you but one I can share, is Dan’s brother who was one of the ushers, spontaneously beat boxing just before he was about to introduce us in to the wedding breakfast, we were not expecting it and we loved it.’
