The Real Wedding of Louise and Nathan at Apton Hall in Essex

Take a look at the chic shots, and find out a little more about our real bride Louise.

As the nights draw in, the mornings get darker and more layers are required before stepping outside. Nothing warms our cockles more, than receiving pictures of our real brides. Seeing their happy, smiling faces on the big day can make any drizzly Monday feel almost tropical.

Recently, we got just such a warm, fuzzy feeling when we received the real wedding pics of our bride Louise, with her now husband Nathan. This stylish couple wed earlier this year at Apton Hall in Rochford. An idyllic countryside wedding venue in Essex that's the perfect blend of elegant and rustic.

Bearing in mind how refined her big day venue was, Louise needed a bridal gown that was equally chic. And we think she nailed it! Norianna from Enzoani was the gown she chose, and its sleek lines, and intricate beading coordinated with her wedding backdrop just effortlessly. Unfortunately, this gown is no longer available, but if you love the look, you must check out the other Enzoani designs.

Following their big day, we asked Louise and Nathan a few questions about their big day, and here's what they shared.

How did you two meet?

On a blind date!

How did you get engaged?

On one knee in Edinburgh

What was your favourite moment(s) from the wedding?

Brief where we were alone together for photos and dancing!

Tell us all about your wedding dress. What details do you love, how did it make you feel?

I felt so elegant and classy, yet comfortable! I loved the flow and the shape, the beading was stunning and shimmered in the sunlight, the slit was great to keep me cool and for easy dancing and swishing in the evening!

How was your Bellissima experience?

Incredible!!! A dream to work with. I could have bought any of the dresses I tried on, but I’m so pleased with the one I found. I felt the best version of myself on the day, and am so grateful to Bellissima and Amelia for all their help and attention. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
