Cecilia and Matt’s Magical Wedding Day

If you have ever thought what a stylish yet laid-back wedding would look like, you are at the right place – Cecilia and Matt’s magical wedding day from August 2017 is the perfect example. It couldn’t have gotten any better, as the warm weather represented the couple’s characters in the best way possible. Cecilia shares that she “will never forget how magical the day was”, from reception to wedding breakfast and dancing the night away..

The day started within All Saint’s Church, where Cecilia arrived in a gorgeous dress with a bouquet of white roses from Flowers by Kirsty.

Following the church ceremony, the newly married couple made their way through the beautifully green Walled Garden, where a simple but lovely archway showed them the way to the Palace’s Tudor Courtyard, where their celebration with closest and dearest was awaiting.
