Intimate family affair at Langdon Hall | David & Tarana

Langdon hall was the incredibly beautiful and perfect backdrop for David and Tarana’s intimate wedding. After discussing what they wanted for their wedding, they decided that they wanted to keep it small and have family only.  With family and friends, amazing weather and a summer colour palette, they were able to have the exact wedding they were dreaming of!…

Bride & Groom: David Correia and Tarana Persaud

Wedding Date:  July 21st, 2018

Ceremony & Reception Location: Langdon Hall (langdonhall.ca) “We loved the history and architecture of the building with its beautiful gardens. Because our wedding party was small, the red room was a perfect fit for a venue for an intimate wedding. We also heard many positive reviews about the head chef and the on-site restaurant. We decided this would be a great opportunity to have a fine dining experience that we could share with our close family. The entire wedding party totaled 14 people so the space was equal parts cozy and elegant.” – T&D

Colour Palette: Pastel, light pink for the bridal bouquet, light blue for the groom’s suit

Theme: “It was minimal and nature focused. We kept everything simple and let the venue do most of the talking for us. Our vows were exchanged in the conservatory so we were surrounded by greenery, and the bridal flowers were a statement piece. David wore a boutonniere that was made of greenery and had a small-patterned floral tie. The décor was also just photos framed in white and two additional floral arrangements. The cake had real flowers as well to tie it all together. A lot of our photos were taken outside in various parts of the garden.” – T

Flowers: Living Fresh (livingfresh.ca) “Colours were pale and blushy pinks with pops of bright pink and heavy focus on greenery. Flowers included ranunculus’s, roses, sweet pea flowers, dahlia and greenery.” – T

Décor: “Didn’t hire anyone for décor. Used 2 floral arrangements and brought 2 photos in white frames. The cake had flowers on it as well and was on display in the dining area.” – T

Fav décor element: “My bouquet!!” – T

“This wedding is quite uncharacteristic due to its size! It was just our parents and siblings and their spouses, so it was entirely a family affair of 14 people. We were able to share a beautiful meal together in a wonderful space with great service. Because it was a small wedding, I opted to do my hair and makeup myself. I kept it very simple and natural, which worked well with the overall theme that unfolded with the wedding. I chose a maxi style wedding dress and it epitomized simplicity and summer for me. We wanted to have a stress-free wedding where we would be able to enjoy our time with our family. Keeping it small and simple made that happen successfully.”  – T

Invitations/stationery: Vistaprint (vistaprint.ca)

Cake: The Cake Box (cakebox.ca)

Groom’s attire: “David wore a light blue suit with floral tie and brown shoes” – T

Bride’s dress and accessories: “My dress was from Asos (asos.com). Earrings were from Anthropologie (anthropologie.com), hair pins from Etsy (etsy.com) and my sandals were from Aldo.” – T

DJ: Spotify playlists!

Wedding Planner: “Tiffany is an Event Coordinator at Langdon Hall and she assisted us with the wedding day details” – T

Photographer: A Nash Photograph (anashphotograph.com) “We looked for photographers in our area online that had well produced photos without charging an arm and a leg. We met with Amy from A Nash Photograph for coffee to discuss what we had in mind for photos and she was so easy going and comfortable to chat with. Even when we voiced some silly ideas she was on board to try and make it happen. We liked her instantly and decided right away to book her as our photographer. Working with Amy and her husband was a breeze. She came prepared with props and knew what scenes to capture. For us, the best part was that she gave really good instructions and directions on how to pose and where to stand, this worked especially well for our large family who got distracted a lot. I loved the pictures of the moments that were captured in between the poses, and some of the impromptu photo shoots – they didn’t miss a minute. I also loved the post editing – they were not overdone and all the photos looked natural.” – T&D

Biggest challenge: “We had to really evaluate what we wanted in our wedding and what our wedding day meant to us, which meant having a very small, family-only guest list. We ended up making lots of pros and cons lists!” – T&D

Fav wedding memory: “The first look! I was so nervous and it was that moment that it hit me that I was getting married. When I saw my husband-to-be, that’s when everything felt real” – T

Advice from one couple to another: “It’s easy to get swept away with the details and go beyond your budget; keeping that in mind helped us with planning our wedding. Also, its your day! Don’t bend to other people’s expectations if it’s not something you want for your special day. You spend lots of time planning this special occasion, enjoy it! Don’t worry if tiny details don’t work out.” – T&D
