Victoria and Ben’s rustic Ukrainian wedding with a touch of magic

Wedding: 20/10/2018

Posted by lucy | 23 April, 2019

Victoria and Ben agreed their day had to include rustic elements, a blue and yellow colour scheme as nod to Victoria’s Ukrainian heritage, and special touches of Marvel and Disney magic.

Victoria and Ben, aged 32 and 33 respectively, tied the knot on October 20, 2018 with a ceremony at St. Ambrose Church in Kidderminster and a later reception at The Mill Barns in the West Midlands. 125 guests celebrated during the day, with an extra 40 joining the newlyweds for their evening reception.

“Our rustic Ukrainian wedding was in memory of my late Grandfather and represented everything that we are: fun, unique and childish. We wanted it to be different to every wedding we had been to.”

Victoria looked every bit the Disney Princess with her incredible gown from The Dressing Rooms and Cinderella slippers from Irregular Choice.

Even the couple’s wedding cake was Disney and Marvel themed, with Italian themed wedding favours.

“They were real-life Cinderella shoes – the bows at the front lit up with every step I took,” Victoria says of her Irregular Choice slippers.

Immediately after meeting Ben in 2010, Victoria told her family she had finally met Mr. Perfect.

Ben and his groomsmen dressed head to toe in Duncan James.

The Cake Room provided the couple’s very special cake.

It wouldn’t be a Disney wedding without Cinderella leaving her slipper behind!
