Happy Valentines to all of our #EllisBrides – past, present and future!
We’re looking past the flowers and chocolate to the true spirit of the day. The poet Chaucer was the first to link St Valentine with romantic love in the Middle Ages. This was the beginning of the tradition of courtly love, a ritual of expressing love and admiration, usually in secret. This practice of sending love messages developed into sending special cards, usually containing sentimental verse and trimmed with lace and ribbon. These images are still used today to symbolise love and are recognised all over the world! We are so proud to play our part in the ultimate celebration of love: the wedding.
In the spirit of these sweet moments, we take a look at some of the most touching imagery from our Real Brides:
