Tom & Verity

Tom and Verity married on New Year's Eve 2019. It was one of those perfect cold bright winter days with golden evening light. They married in St. Aiden's Church in Bamburgh, Northumberland and held the reception in a marquee at Verity's parents' house. Their photographer was the excellent Dan, from Nineteen90 Photography. Verity wore an Opal Faux Fur Jacket and her bridesmaids wore matching Stoles from the Helen Moore Wedding Collection.

Tell us in one sentence or paragraph about the big day:

It was such an amazing day, we were so lucky with the weather with it being in the middle of winter and it made our New Year's Eve so special.

What inspired the design and theme of the day?

We didn't really have a theme in mind, but we wanted a winter wonderland with lots of fairy lights and candles, as it was such a special time of year.

When did you start planning your dress and accessories?

I found my dress in September 2018, I had a style in mind and found the perfect dress in the first shop I went to, it was the first dress I tried on too!

Where did you get your dress?

Kavelle in Edinburgh, it is such a beautiful shop and the ladies are so friendly and helpful.

Why did you choose to wear faux fur?

It was going to be pretty chilly in the north especially in December, so I wanted something for myself and my bridesmaids to keep us warm! Luckily the weather was amazing and the sun shone, but the fur looked beautiful

Did your bridesmaids wear faux fur?

My bridesmaids wore the Opal Stoles and I had a matching jacket

Did we help you in any way to make sure your faux fur accessories were perfect?

Gill and the whole Helen Moore team were so helpful in finding the perfect fur, I received numerous samples to match with the bridesmaids' dresses so that they were just right.

What have you done with your faux fur accessory since the big day?

I wore my jacket on Day 2 of our wedding with a casual dress, and I will be wearing it again and again, it will go with so many outfits.

Congratulations Tom & Verity!
