Getting Married at Home, Laura Tan and David Ring ‘s Wedding

Laura Tan and David Ring is getting married at home, both 31 years old.

We chose a green and
white palette so everything would feel fresh and elegant. I did
start to doubt the choice at one point as so many people kept
asking why we weren’t using colour! But I was so pleased with how
the decor turned out.

Our big day was a family
affair. Both our mums made our cake, while a close family friend
decorated it. My dad also made our place mats and menu stands out
of wood from the garden, while we created all the apple place

My mum and I arranged
most of the marquee flowers – a mix of English seasonal blooms and
orchids as a nod to my Chinese heritage. For the marquee, our
florist created two large sculptural hanging pieces with branches,
orchids and moss – they looked sensational.

When some friends, the
very talented Hannah and Alice from Belle & Bunty, offered to
design my dress I obviously said yes! We created three separates –
a short-sleeved lace jacket, a silk maxi skirt with a train and a
silk camisole. It meant everything was beautifully fitted but I
also felt so comfortable during the day.

Don’t underestimate what a big task it is to do all
your decor yourself. It was enjoyable, but fairly stressful too!
