The couple married on the 26th August 2016 at Ramster Hall in Chiddingfold in Surrey. As Mina and Brett were only engaged for ten months, Ramster Hall was the first and only venue they viewed. ‘I went with my dad as Brett was unavailable at the time,’ says Mina. ‘I booked it without him viewing it, he had of course seen the website. However, I knew it was for us as soon as I saw it. It is grand yet intimate with a lovely piano (we have pianists int he family). I knew it was meant to be. Brett is a big history lover too and Ramster is steeped in history.’

Mina and Brett first met at work. ‘He was then a manager of the planning department and I used to do his accounts,’ explains Mina. “He would invent all sorts of reasons for needing to talk to me!’

Brett proposed to Mina on Halloween. The couple were out for a meal at The Shard with a small group of friends who all knew about Brett’s planned proposal. ‘I had tried to book the meal myself as it was for Brett’s birthday, but he insisted on doing it himself,’ says Mina. ‘Someone suggested we have a photograph taken. As we were standing to have our photograph taken, Brett suddenly dropped to one knee and proposed!  I was stunned and once I said yes, the whole restaurant exploded with applause.  Our friend who was taking the false photograph had switched to video, so the whole thing was filmed. This was lovely for our families to see.’

When it came to her wedding dress for the couple’s pretty summer wedding, Mina knew that she wanted a big skirt. ‘I wanted the type of dress I would only ever wear once and nobody could mistake as an evening dress,’ says Mina. She found her Ambar by YolanCris dress at London Bride Couture. ‘The team at London Bride Couture were lovely and really helped make my dream come true,’ explains Mina. ‘As the dress wasn’t white. I was worried I wouldn’t find a veil to match.  Lucky they had the perfect veil at the boutique and when the dress arrived with spare lace cuttings, these were used to trim the veil and so it matched perfectly.’

Isn’t the colour of Mina’s dress stunning?

For the evening, Mina changed into a Supertrash dress from ASOS, this meant she could dance freely.

A big part of Mina and Brett’s pretty summer wedding were the gorgeous flowers. Caroline at Cherfold Flowers was their florist. ‘Caroline is so incredibly talented and creative,’ says Mina. ‘I just loved the flowers on our wedding day and I have started planting the same flowers in our garden so I can have a living wedding bouquet.. From the start, I was clear about the colours; muted blues, creams and blush. I showed Caroline fabric cuttings and pictures of the dress as it wasn’t white and it was important the colours suited my dress.’ Mina was keen on hydrangeas, Caroline suggested the rest of the flowers, these included roses, sweet peas, delphiniums and dahlias.

The bridesmaids blue Biba dresses couldn’t have been more perfect for the couple’s pretty summer wedding. Mina’s stepson and Brett’s son was the ring bearer. Hs suit was hired from Anthony’s Formal Wear. The two best men wore Hugo Boss shirts and their suits were also hired from Anthony’s Formal Wear. Brett wore a Hugo boss suit, shirt and tie.

As Mina is half Iranina, it was important that there were some Iranian elements at their wedding. The canapés were by a company called Persian Canapes. Mina also found an Iranian sign from Sara Pisheh on Etsy. ‘I now get to look at every day on the mantlepiece,’ says Mina.

Mina and Brett’s pretty summer wedding was photographed by Emmie Scott. ‘Emmie was full of invaluable knowledge and advice,’ says Mina. ‘I am in love iwth our wedding photographs and will cherish the memories they have given us forever.
