I’m so excited to share Tegan and Ian’s wedding with you today. I love this couple and I loved helping them make their wedding day so special. It’s one of my favourite set-ups ever!
Wedding date: 31st March 2017
Wedding venue: Magnolia, Al Qasr
Bride + Groom: Tegan & Ian Fern
When did you get engaged and how? We got engaged Christmas day 2015. Ian took me on a beautiful Christmas walk in my local woods near my Mums home in the UK. With it just being the 2 of us, he got down on one knee and proposed!
How did you plan your wedding? (Did you use a wedding planner?) Joelle was our lifesaver! Although she isn’t a wedding planner, she helped with ideas and contacts for all of the other things!
Tell me about your dress? I knew I didn’t want a white puffy dress! I always had an idea of the kind of dress I wanted but it was very hard to find. My dress was from a small shop in Jumeriah. The dress was originally strapless, however, the owner of the shop, Anne, put the straps on for me. She adjusted the dress so well too.
The Décor: (what was your theme, style?) I really wanted to have lots of candles and low lighting. I showed Joelle a few ideas I had and then she took them and elaborated on it to create a whimsical garden theme! It worked beautifully in the venue.
What’s your advice for couples getting married? Don’t stress! Everyone is there to see you, the rest will fall into place.
Did you have any entertainment? We had a band followed by a DJ.
If you could do it all again, would you change anything? Honestly, having the band! If you’re on a budget it’s a big expense and even though we loved the band, we are not sure it was worth such a big spend.
The high light of your day? All of it! If I had to pick one, it would have to be getting off the abra and walking into the reception dinner.
Vendor credits – Feel free to rave about the people who made your wedding day so special.
Joelle and all of the vendors she used!! – I should probably remove this but I won’t because I love my vendors! 😉
