#weddingwednesday Intimate Marlborough Occasion
Julia and Patrick were originally going to elope but then decided on a small family wedding. The day before the wedding was torrential rain, giving Julia a few heart flutters but on the day the clouds parted and provided a wonderful moody backdrop for photos.
Coming to Astra Bridal Julia and a friend had a list of options, but the first gown that caught her eye was on a mannequin. Newly arrived we hadn't seen it on anyone, so with some encouragement Julia tried it on so the Wellington team could see it on someone.
Julia decided to try Nicole first, to get it out of the way, before moving on to the others she had on the list. But in Julia's words "My friend Emily and I were both in shock how it suited me and the feeling I wanted for my wedding day so well. Every dress after that felt too structured and formal - we said before I wasn't going to choose the first dress I tried on but sometimes things just happen for a reason!"
