Hannah & Jamie's Pretty In Pink Wedding

Hannah and Jamie's real life wedding at Rivervale Barn | CHWV

Hannah and Jamie’s September wedding at Rivervale Barn in Hampshire was fabulously pretty in pink with a hint of shabby chic. Hannah lived every brides dream by wearing not one, but two absolutely stunning wedding dresses on her big day!


How it all began

"Jamie and I are from the same town and met five years ago when I was working behind a bar. Jamie proposed in Las Vegas under the Eiffel tower! I was very surprised and had no idea at all. 



Choosing a wedding venue

We chose Rivervale Barn as our wedding venue because it took our breath away. It has a very intimate feel and a beautiful romantic atmosphere.



Wedding dresses

I was lucky enough to have two dresses for my wedding; the day dress was a beautiful full skirted princess-style and a figure-hugging fishtail dress for the evening. I wore a handmade hair vine headdress that was very delicate and pretty and diamond drop earrings to match. My flowers were classic pale pink roses.


Bridemaids and Ushers

Jamie and his two Ushers wore pale blue suits with stripy ice cream coloured ties. My two Bridesmaids wore pink Grecian floaty dresses.



Styling the day

The Reception Barn was decorated with many handmade touches, lots of butterfly fairy lights, fresh flowers and Cath Kitson bunting. We also had a cupcake tower and sweet shop which gave it a very shabby chic style. The table centrepieces were bay trees decorated with butterflies, roses and fairy lights.


Top tips

My advice for other couples is to relax and enjoy every second because it will be the best but the fastest day of your lives.


The best bits

My favourite part of the day was Jamie’s speech, which absolutely blew me away - it was perfect.”
