Traditional British WeddingLindsey + Anthony: Traditional British Wedding
Posted by Blush Magazine • Posted on August 28, 2018
Lindsey and Anthony fell in love at first sight at a public philosophy lecture at the University of Calgary. They discovered a mutual love for philosophy, literature and their British heritage.
Anthony proposed to Lindsey inside of a historical building in Calgary, with the help of a little orange elephant.
The Big Day
They were married in a traditional Church of England service in front of six special guests. Anthony’s father walked Lindsey down the aisle to the beautiful music of a Casavant Fréres organ—one of the largest in Western Canada with 5,000 pipes. Lindsey wore something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue—and David even gave her a silver sixpence to put in her shoe.
After their solemn yet uplifting ceremony, they stepped into a silver Bentley as man and wife to head to Lindsey’s childhood home for their reception. Holding the dinner where Lindsey had so many fond memories created the nostalgic, intimate and romantic atmosphere they wanted.
They served an eight course pescatarian meal on Blue Mikado china that Lindsey’s grandmother had received for a wedding gift, and had their menus written in blue calligraphy to match.
Lindsey: “Getting into the back of the Silver Bentley with Anthony and looking into one another’s eyes as man and wife was such a romantic and precious moment for me. Cutting the cake with my son Anton, and our delight in eating it! ”
Anthony: “Watching my gorgeous wife step into the church nave, accompanied by my father, to the soaring sound of Bach’s Largo on the pipe organ at Knox Church – it was so humbling and lovely.’
