We met in a night club 18 years ago. We were 16.
In bed at my mum’s house.
I went to the Willows with 25 friends and Phil went out with the lads.
Because the first time around it was a small affair, he didn’t help much, but this time around he was a fantastic help in every way possible. As you have guessed, we renewed our wedding vows after 11 years. It was a fantastic day with carriage and horses, Hollywood dreams dress, bridesmaids, best men, the works.
I was never away from the website. The girls on the other side were fantastic.
I bought a Hollywood dreams dress and had some alteration done to it. I bought it in Alderly Edge, Bolton.
I had three bridesmaids and one flower girl. The bridesmaids wore two piece aqua Hillary Morgan suits with wraps and the flower girls wore ivory dresses from BHS.
Phil had two best men one being our son and the other his brother. They all wore Edwardian blue jackets, pin striped pants, gold cravats and looked fantastic.
We had the full church wedding with bells, readings done by both of our children and bubble blown outside.
We held our ceremony at St Marks Church in Worsley
Worsley Court House, Worsley.
I had a carriage and two black horses and the bridesmaids had vintage cars.
We had 150 guests for all day and night.
The colours were aqua, silver and ivory.
We had candle arrangements, balloons, cameras, and party poppers.
Yes, we had chocolates made with the date and our name on them.
I had my flowers made out of crystal and silk.
The venue did all the catering. We had two buffets which were fantastic.
My cake was in the shape of a flower head with a candle in the middle. The design was out of the wedding ideas book and it was made by my sister’s mother in law.
We had a disco.
We asked for St. Ann Hospice donations.
We stayed at the Marriott in Worsley.
When I arrived at church and Phil said a looked like a princess.
Yes, the carriage and horses were 30 minutes late.
Relax and enjoy every minute of it. Smile, cry and have fun, fun, fun!
