Laid Back Lilac & Pink Real Wedding at the Matara Centre: Lily & Phil
Lily & Phil were inspired by the things they love and their unique wedding venue, the Matara Centre when it came to how to style their big day. Lily looked radiant in her elegant, Eliza Howell wedding gown carrying a simple bunch of carefree wildflowers.

I wore an Eliza Jane Howell wedding dress, it was absolutely beautiful.
We married in July at the Matara Centre in Kingscote Park, Near Tetbury.
We couldn’t have asked for anything more from our photographer. Before the wedding he organised a free engagement shoot, so he could get to know us.
We were a little nervous about this as it is not something that either of us would usually do, but Dale made us both feel so at ease. The photos were also perfect which made us feel a lot calmer about the day itself.
On the day Dale was everything you would want. He simply blended in with the day itself. He had asked in advance which organised shots we wanted, which he also organised with ease and no stress.
We chose to have relatively few organised shots, as we wanted him to spend more time capturing the day itself.
We were very happy with this decision as the photos captured perfectly the joy and happiness of our day.
We didn’t really have a theme for our wedding, we just chose things that we loved, including wildflowers.
A friend made our wedding cake. We had a naked cake also with wildflowers.
Walking down the aisle was definitely one of the most memorable moments of the day.
Our advice about planning a wedding and getting married? Don’t get too stressed about the little things. See it as a celebration and enjoy it.
