Pauline and Matthew’s wedding

12 November 2015
/ / /

Pauline wanted various wedding hair accessories : a cute and small heapiece for the flower girl, headpieces for the bridesmaids that would match the wedding’s color theme, and a fascinator for herself for the reception.  The bride chose the Ireland design for her bridesmaids, a special version for the maid of honor, and a custom piece but still similar for the flower girl :

The bride decided to wear different accessories for the ceremony and reception. We worked closely to fashion a delicate, feminine and chic headpiece, custom to look like the lace details of her dress. The result was a custom-made Capelio bridal fascinator made of a lace piece on a headband with hand-placed rhinestones :

The wedding

The bride and groom decided to have a Doctor Who-themed wedding, with royal blue as its main theme color. As well as incorporate elements from their favorite TV show, this adorable couple included various elements from the bride’s culture, as her family is from the Philipines.

Pauline and Matthew exchanged vows in front of their families and friends at St. Basil’s Catholic Parish, at the University of St. Michael’s College, in dowtown Toronto. The reception took place at the Old Mill Inn, also in Toronto. Many guests had come from other cities in Ontario and Quebec to be part of their special moment!

Of course, as it was a Doctor Who-themed wedding, there was a T.A.R.D.I.S.!

Following an ancient tradition from the culture of the bride, the newlyweds entered the room under swords :

Another tradition was to include little charms with ribbons in the cake. The single ladies of the evening could all each pull a charm from the cake, and the one who had  the ring charm is supposed to get married within a year!
