Written by    Last updated: June 27, 2014

Aspen Photographic have given us this wonderful opportunity to share Kirsty and Marks’ gorgeous real wedding. Their New York themed fuchsia wedding is stunning; the vibrant pink proves you don’t have to opt for a traditional pastel shade, a bolder tone can be just as elegant and memorable. Hope you enjoy this week’s real wedding just as much as we did!

Kirsty and Mark's Real Wedding

Bride and Groom… Kirsty and Mark

Wedding date… Saturday 8th March 2014

We met… At a work event, where we were introduced through mutual friends.  The nursery I work at was holding a summer BBQ and Mark came along to help with the food as he was friends with my manager and her husband.

The proposal… Mark proposed on Bow Bridge in Central Park on a holiday to New York.  It was very romantic and I loved the fact it was a surprise, I had no idea what he was planning as we had only been together 16 months.  I felt a bit guilty afterwards because he had to drag me to the bridge as I wanted to go to the Central Park zoo!  I had no idea why he wanted to go to the bridge so badly!

I knew he was ‘the one’… Straight away! I know that sounds cheesy.

Length of engagement… 2 Years

How did help in your big day? I loved looking at the real weddings page for inspiration.

My dress was… From Alta Costura Bride in Maidstone. I only went in to try on a few dresses to get an idea of what I liked and what suited me but I ended up finding my dream dress.  The dress was strapless so the lovely seamstress Isabella worked with me to make some beautiful straps, making my dress a one of a kind!

My bridal accessories were… A diamanté tiara and veil from Alta Costura Bride. My necklace and earrings belonged to my nan who couldn’t make it to the wedding.

Bridal make up…. Was done my Gemma Pass the make up artist.

Our bridesmaids were… My best friends Vicky and Sarah. My sister Hannah was Maid of Honour.  I knew I wanted the girls to wear the same dress and I have always liked long bridesmaid dresses.  We chose the dress between the four of us, I wanted to make sure the girls all liked the dresses and were comfortable wearing it.

Our best men were… Shane, Pete, Matt, Iain and Alex, they all shared the role and did a really funny best man speech together. Mark couldn’t make a decision on who was to be his best man so he chose 5!

Our wedding ceremony was… Held at Cooling Castle Barn. We had a simple ceremony with 80 guests and two readings; the first was the lyrics to the song Life’s a happy song from the Muppets movie and the second was a poem called ‘On Your Wedding Day.’ The groom waiting for the bride The bride making her way to the ceremony The bride making her way to the ceremony Wedding guests at Cooling Castle Barn  Wedding ceremony at Cooling Castle Barn The bride and groom at the ceremony The flower girl in a white dress and tiara The first kiss as husband and wife   Fuchsia pink gerberas in mini fishbowls Guests throwing confetti to celebrate the marriage
