Another year has come to an end - and for us here at Confetti, this year brought some of the best Real Weddings we've ever had! As is fitting on…

On a very drunken evening whilst I was working as a children’s entertainer at a camp site – oh the romance!
25 and 26.
On a beach in Antigua on our last evening together!
Of course! Dave went to Brussels and I had two – well you only get one shot! I had a weekend in a cottage full of pampering and then a meal at a lovely restaurant in Plymouth!
As we got married abroad there wasn’t a lot to do but he helped out with the reception for when we got back!
The website was fantastic – I met loads of people who had got married abroad and they answered all of my questions! It was great sharing all of our different ideas as well.
Kind of! I’m still trying to sort it out!
Yes, through the Confetti online store.
I got it from BHS! It is a very simple dress that looks like a two-piece but was only one and the back had lace going up – stunning!
As we got married away he didn’t have one but my dad wore the same colour shirt as David.
Civil in a gazebo over the beach!
At the Sandals Halcyon in St Lucia, Caribbean.
Derriford Health and Leisure Centre in Plymouth.
A helicopter transfer from and to the hotel!
We had immediate family to the wedding so six guests and 130 to the evening.
Well I had to include my favourite colour, which is pink (but that did match Dave’s shirt!) and then we had some beach themed bits.
As it was an evening reception which was very informal we decorated all of the tables with starfish, palm tree confetti and just some other silly little bits!
Yes, my sister made them all!
I had flowers freshly picked from their gardens which were beautiful! I think they were orchids.
We had a five course evening meal in a restaurant overlooking the sea, Dave had mainly fish courses and I had chicken!
We bought our cake from Lawsons and my mum and sister decorated it; we kept it very simple with pink ribbon, three pink roses and then an orchid to stay with the Caribbean style.
During the evening we had a DJ who was fantastic!
No. When people asked, we told them we were going to be putting in a new kitchen so most people gave us money or vouchers.
In St. Lucia!
Standing with my dad looking down into the gazebo where Dave couldn’t see me and to see him with a smile absolutely beaming! Oh and us all going on the rings which get pulled by speed boats 20 minutes after the wedding (I had to get changed first!)
Did you experience any ‘nightmare’ moments in the run up to your wedding or on the day?
Nothing, it went absolutely perfectly!
Relax, enjoy and remember it’s your day so make sure you spend time together as it can get very hectic in the evening!
