Marriage is a time honoured institution and
the wedding ceremony itself is full of symbols and traditions that come down to
us from the ages - sometimes from unexpected sources.
While white has always been the
colour of choice for wedding parties in Japan, in Europe and North America, the
white wedding gown was first worn and popularized by Queen Victoria in 1840.

It doesn’t matter where you get the
inspiration for your own wedding ceremony or traditions, what matters is that

to flowers and décor - goes with everything else.
