Tamsin and Peter

We’ve come to the end of our wedding week and I’m a little sad, but thrilled to bring you today’s dramatic wedding! Today’s wedding is the wedding of Tamsin and Peter who met at Tamsin’s brother’s 21st birthday party! The couple chose a Gothic theme for their wedding day – using black, red and white. The drama of their choice was reflected at their church which featured a large organ.

Peter’s daughter acted as flower girl and carried a posy of red roses with a crown of red roses in her hair. All of the wedding flowers were by Nati Bros Rose Farm. Tamsin wore a Peter Trends gown and pearl earrings from Bijoux.

Tamsin’s five best friends stood beside her on her wedding day. Each wearing a different floor length black gown. The best man even flew in from Colorado to be there for Peter’s wedding day!
