26 Feb Feature Wedding – Jessica Barton and Tom Lucas
Nothing could dampen Jessica and Tom’s spirits when they got married on November 22 last year. Not even when New Zealand turned on an overcast day with wind and rain. The newlyweds smiles lit up the grey skies when they said ‘I do’ at Tom’s local church in Torbay on Auckland’s North Shore.
Followed by a reception at Mantells on the Water down on the Auckland City waterfront the newly married couple danced the night away with their family and friends.
“We didn’t want to leave!” Jessica laughed as she shares her memories of their wonderful wedding day.
I wore Michelle Roth’s “Endya” dress. It was customised for a slightly more mermaid shape to give me some curves!
I also had a raw edge finger-tip veil and a fluffy feather cropped jacket. Unfortunately our wedding day was cold, windy and rainy so the jacket came in very handy.
The girls wore navy blue full length gowns. They had V-necks with cap sleeves and black glitter. We accessorised the dresses with gorgeous pointy-toed shoes. I wanted them to be glamorous, but comfortable enough to be on their feet and able to party hard on the dance floor all night.
They were in light grey suits with navy ties and black shoes. Tom’s suit was a little darker. He wanted to stand out!
We wanted a simple but classic and timeless look. We didn’t go for any particular style. We just kept the colour scheme based on black, white and navy. Everything else fell in around that.
I had white roses with a touch of green. I didn’t want the flowers to draw attention away from the intricate detail of my wedding gown. I wanted the dress to be the first thing you noticed.
Everyone received chocolate fortune cookies with personalised messages and lucky sayings and quotes inside. I have Chinese ancestry so it was a way that I could incorporate that into the wedding.
WHERE DID YOU GO FOR THE HONEYMOON?
Bay of Islands, New Zealand. The most beautiful place in the world!
