Afternoon Lovely People,

I hope you all had a great weekend.

We have a very calm and spiritual wedding to share with you today.

Held under a grand old oak tree in the heart of the Sussex Countryside, Bella and Dom’s beautiful wedding was a day of reflection, awareness, community, love and giving. Each part of their wonderful wedding carried a spiritual meaning that invited their guests to bond and connect in someway. Whether it be through their blessing held around a stunning large quartz rock or through the mantras, rituals and dances they all performed throughout the day. There were songs, music, prayers, meditation and yoga and even Bella’s bespoke wedding dress held a personal and significant spiritual meaning of being true to yourself at a time of great change.

It is clear from viewing their photos and reading about their day that Bella and Dom not only wanted to celebrate their deep spiritual connection with each other but also to build on and encourage their connection with others by creating a wedding that was completely inclusive in every way.

Look out for their ‘dance of peace’ held after the ceremony, their simple yet very pretty decor and the stunning large quartz rock surrounded by flowers.

Bella and Dom talk us through their day…

Glastonbury and an immediate connection….

Bella and Dom met in a muddy Glastonbury in 2007 during one of ID Spirals festival within a festival and formed an immediate connection.

Bella and Dom are the co-founders of ‘Inspiral‘ Bringing together organic raw vegan health products, an optimum nutrition vegan café (running on green energy) and an uplifting music / art / events venue with organic bar in Camden London

Rustic Zen….

Basia Wasiek, my head bridesmaid did most of the decor for our wedding. She put in tireless effort in the couple of months leading up to the wedding with styling and sourcing the decor for the event. It was all natural in feel and in a style she coined ‘rustic zen.’ Basia is now considering going into this as a profession and I couldn’t recommend her enough! She has a great work ethic with an incredible artistic and sensitive eye.

50% Hemp and 50% Silk…..

I had my dress bespoke made by Blanka at White Leaf Boutique in Trafalgar street, North Lanes, Brighton. It’s an eco dress made from 50% hemp 50% silk. The gold appliqués were sourced by myself from Berwick street, Soho, and the hanging pendant attached to the lace neckline is a 24ct gold-plated Merkaba / Star Tetrahedron. The meaning of this sacred geometry shape is “The Merkaba Star Tetrahedron is an amazing and powerful tool, especially during these current times of shifts and transitions. It can assist in the connection between the physical and ethereal bodies, allow us to see the psychological patterns and programs that may limit us, and is a constant reminder to remember our true, loving and divine nature. By meditating on the Merkaba Star Tetrahedron we are able to merge with Source, the Divine, All that is.

Handmade Rings from Ethically Sourced Gold….

Dom and I wanted ethically sourced gold, but also that had lots of meaning woven in so we took a trip to Ibiza to a lady who runs jewellery making workshops. we arrived there with a handful of gold pieces donated to us by many members of both our families. we melted them down together, along with some hair from our heads and we made blessings into the molten gold before shaping into one long flat piece which we cut into two. As a result both rings fit perfectly together – i proceeded to make Dom’s ring for him, and he made my ring for me – it was our first jewellery making project ever so the rings are quite ‘rustic’ and very heavy!’

Organic Vegetarian Food….

All our food was organic, vegetarian, egg-free and gluten-free with vegan options – designed and masterminded by our very own Enzo Di Marino of inSpiral, with help from the rest of the inSpiral team, e.g. Eddy and Gee (heading up the bar). An extra shout-out to Enzo here who insisted on not accepting any payment for this mammoth task, wishing it to be his wedding gift to us! Epic!
