The Bride's Elegant Long-Sleeved Wedding Dress

Every bride dreams of the perfect wedding dress, and Kadie certainly found hers at Castle Brides. Her wedding gown was a masterpiece of sophistication and charm. With its long sleeves, the dress exuded elegance while keeping her warm on a chilly winter day. The figure-hugging design accentuated her silhouette, making her look like a true winter princess.

The dress was a touch of timeless romance with beautiful detailed sleeves and neckline which really did tie in with the winter feel almost giving a gorgeous snow flake vibe, and the train trailed behind her like a flurry of snowflakes, leaving guests in awe as she walked down the aisle. Kadie truly looked radiant and stunning as she stood beside her groom, Will, who was dawning the most dapper tux ever.

A Cosy But Yet Spectacular Festive Delight

The guests were thrilled to see the beautiful vintage tractors displayed at the entrance of the reception whilst being greeted by festive canapés and fizz. Inside was magical, the most gorgeous room perfect for Christmas decor. There was fairy lights hanging from the ceilings, along with baubles, mistletoe and so much foliage.

As guests arrived at Kadie and Will's winter wonderland wedding, they were greeted with a delightful surprise – hand-painted glass Christmas baubles as wedding favors. Each bauble was a unique work of art, showcasing festive designs and personalized details that reflected the couple's love story.

These baubles not only served as beautiful keepsakes for guests but also added a touch of holiday magic to the entire event. They could be hung on Christmas trees for years to come, serving as a reminder of the joyous occasion and the love shared by Kadie and Will.

What Kadie & Will Had to say

VIX IS AMAZING!!! Don’t even hesitate booking her as your wedding photographer- just do it! In the months leading up to the wedding Vix was really helpful and super organised. She went above and beyond the role of a wedding photographer- helping with our wedding timeline, along with lots of top tips and helping the day to run as smoothly as possible.

Vix provided a pre wedding photo shoot as part of her package. This was a really great opportunity to work with her before the wedding. She really put us both at ease and the photos are absolutely stunning.

In terms of wedding photos they are simply beautiful. Everything we had hoped for and more. Photos are so natural. Vix made the group photos easily. Nothing seemed a chore or took too long either. She really has given us the best wedding photos to treasure forever.

To top it all off Vix is one of the kindest and funniest people we know. She is magic ✨ Can’t wait to work with her again sometime again in the future.
