Bride leaning on groom's shoulder

Do you remember Carrie Bradshaw’s Vivienne Westwood wedding dress from the first Sex and The City movie? Of course you do. Well today we are featuring the fabulous wedding of super cool couple Sashy and Dashy, photographed by Anna Hardy Photography, and Sashy wore the Vivienne Westwood dress.

We love everything about this wedding, from the amazing dress (of course) to the beautiful brooch wedding bouquet, the male ‘flower girls’ in shorts to the abundance of gold.

We know you’ll love this week’s fun and quirky real wedding.

“My mum and I have always loved over-the-top gold gilt, so when planning there was an obvious golden finish to almost everything! As our wedding was at the Crab & Lobster, a venue that is already so beautifully decorated, there was a slightly nautical feel throughout. All our stationery had anchors on and the favours were displayed in scallop shells that we’d spray painted gold, to give a more glamorous Louis XV feel.

“The main inspiration for the wedding was the outfits I had picked out. I’m a big collector of Vivienne Westwood clothes so I was excited to dress my bridal party up in them! I actually fell in love with the gown I wore when I was just 17 years old, so the first thing I did, before even proposing to Dashy, was buy the dress! The shape of the hemline on the dress reminded me of a scallop shell, which seemed to work so well with the venue. The print on the bridesmaid dresses is Westwood’s iconic Salon Print, a photograph of the opulent interior of a stately home. The print worked as a beautiful colour palette and inspiration for all things gold gilt!”
