Featured Bride Anita's Hobbitton Wedding
Simon and Anita got married in Hobbiton. Anita chose the Maggie Sottero Victoriana and looked incredible. The couple wanted a traditional day and made the most of their unique outdoors location. They used emerald green and gold as their colours which blended in beautifully with the nature of Hobbiton. To keep with the Hobbiton / Lord of the Rings theme they also had Hobbit hole place cards and little Middle Earth gift bags for each guest with quirky gifts like the One Ring, and a card with their names translated into Orc, Hobbit, Elf, Man and Dwarf.
Their amazing photos were taken by one of my favourite photographers Tinted Photography.
Favourite wedding day moment:
Walking up the aisle towards my husband, with Ellie Goulding’s ‘How Long will I love you?’ playing, whilst holding on to my dad’s arm
Advice for future brides:
Enjoy every moment. Don’t stress on the day because a lot of things will be outside of your control. Planning your wedding day is between you and your partner – make choices for yourselves, not based on what others want or think.
Your wedding in one word:
Why did you choose your dress?
The dress felt right on the day I went dress shopping. I’d tried on others but this dress just encompassed everything I’d envisioned. I knew it would look stunning outdoors at Hobbiton plus it just felt so comfortable. It had the look, the feel – the only surprise was the colour. I had ordered it in Pearl Rose which I hadn’t actually tried on in store as there weren’t any, but it was the right choice in the end.
