Maggie Bride Helen’s natural woodland wedding took place at the Cain Manor on the Hampshire-Surrey border. The couple fell in love with the venue for its gorgeous oak beams, charming wooden floors and its sentimental value. Russ surprised Helen with a romantic proposal in the New Forest by laying out stones to spell, “Will you marry me?”.
While planning the wedding, Helen tried to incorporate this special moment in as many decorative details as possible.
Helen looked gorgeous in Britannia by Maggie Sottero. After a day of dress shopping with her mom, trying on a lot of styles, Helen found “the dress” at the final shop of the day. “As soon as I put it on I knew it was the one,” says Helen. She loved the sweetheart neckline, low back, and unique coloring of the ivory to pale gold ombré.
