Standing nervously in front of a full length mirror Rachel looked perfect. Her hair was styled up elegantly, with a mid-length veil pinned at the back. An image of loveliness, she wore a stunning white lace wedding dress with a long train. Her trailing bouquet of white calla lilies added to the breath-taking beauty of the bride.
Jon met the groom for his pre-wedding preparation in one of the local pubs. The groom and groomsmen – including two best men, wore calla lily button holes to match the bride’s bouquet. Touches of a pale orange in the buttonholes matched their ties and pocket squares. As friends and family arrived the best men helped Tony check that everything was in place and the wedding began.
