Cindy and Thomas’ beautiful copper themed wedding took place at the stunning Coworth Park in Ascot. I’m sure many brides-to-be dream of a wedding venue with beautiful gardens, and Cindy and Thomas made the most of the fabulous grounds with an intimate outdoor ceremony.
As you’ll know, copper is a big wedding trend. The copper styling Cindy and Thomas created works so well with the backdrop of the venue. They used cute copper wire letters of their initials and copper painted picture frames to style their guest book table. Their wedding cake included a copper tier, they placed a copper favour box on every other ceremony chair, and their place names were a gorgeous copper bar tied delicately to the menu card. Everything was copper… who knew you can get photo booth props in copper too? Even the inside of Cindy’s gorgeous Ted Baker wedding shoes were copper – I have serious shoe envy!
Cindy and Thomas really thought about their styling details and made sure that every little detail was just so. I hope you enjoy this magnificent wedding, captured by Masha Unwerth, and get loads of inspiration for styling your own copper themed wedding.
“Thomas and I met 10 years ago when we were both working in the same hotel. I had just started and he was very persistent in getting me to go out for a date with him… I finally agreed and we have been together ever since!
“Thomas is French so we ended up having two weddings, not even a week apart. Our immediate French family travelled to the UK on the Monday for our wedding at Coworth, and then we travelled to France with my family to do it all over again on the Saturday with the rest of our French family and friends.”
“I only had one day to find my wedding dress as my mother made a five-hour trip to visit us up north so we could go together. After trying on over what felt like 20 dresses and almost walking out the shop twice I eventually found my perfect dress. The lady who was looking after me on the day ran up to us when we were nearly out the door with ‘my dress’ in hand, begging me to try it on just in case we’d overlooked it before. I felt like a princess in it, and even got to wear it twice!”
“Coworth Park has copper styling throughout, so we chose a copper themed wedding with ivory details to work with this. We made all the boxes and name tags for our favours, which were delicious meringues from our favourite French pub. I also made all the orders of service, menus, place cards and photos on our gift table.
“Our flowers were soft, romantic designs of ivory and copper roses and ivory hydrangeas. The arrangements were loose and informal – naturally beautiful.
“A friend we used to work with made our three tier wedding cake, which gave it extra sentimental value. The top and bottom tiers were ivory and the middle copper to match our theme.”
“Our pianist Richard Sully played for us during our ceremony and reception. He holds a special place in our hearts as he played in the hotel where we first met, and we always said we wanted him playing at our wedding.
“Our photographer Masha and I used to work together at Coworth Park. I followed her career and loved her work, and I couldn’t imagine anyone else capturing our day. My favourite picture his of Thomas and our son before our ceremony started; they both looked so cool!
“Our wedding day was a whirlwind but was such a privilege to have all the people we loved in one place at the same time. The love and appreciation you feel on the day is overwhelming. We are so thankful for all our loved ones and what they did to help us to make it a dream come true.”
