We used to work at the same place and got together about 5 1/2 years ago at a pub in Fleet.
37 and 34.
Between Christmas and New Year of 2004, we went to see The Lion King and he took me to Tiffany’s.
I had three, a weekend in Brighton, and two in Fleet. Dave had one and went to Newcastle for the weekend.
He arranged the honeymoon and sorted out the disco, photographer and helped with the reception.
I used the website for ideas which was very helpful.
I visited the store and bought a table plan, favour contents and Confetti for the tables.
It was an Alfred Angelo dress in covered satin with lace, pearls & sequins, a strapless, princess-line gown with a semi cathedral train. I also had a crystal tiara and veil edged with Swarovski crystals.
I had two bridesmaids, Linda and Carole, who wore Alfred Angelo strapless dresses in Victorian lilac with matching crystals on the bodices and matching tiaras. I also bought them a necklace and earrings with the colour of the crystals on the dresses.
Best man Leigh, Ushers Ed and Rich and they all wore morning suits with the cravats the same colour and material to match the bridesmaids.
Christ Church, Crookham.
Classic 1950′s Blue Bentley.
There were 98 guests invited to the day plus a further 80 invited to the evening.
Pink and lilac.
Favour boxes with lilac ribbons and pink roses, pink, lilac and silver confetti sprinkled on the tables. The flowers also incorporated these colours.
Yes – favour boxes with chocolates in the middle.
Freesias, roses and calla lilies with lime green incorporated into a spray, all arranged by a Florist member of the family.
Melon and raspberry coulis, chicken in a white wine sauce with a selection of vegetables followed by a strawberry Pavlova for desert.
We had a square 3-tier cake with calla lilies and roses which was made by a friend of the family.
Disco in the evening.
Trailfinders and Debenhams.
First night at Farnham Castle, honeymoon in South Africa and Mauritius booked through Trailfinders.
Arriving at the church and the actual service.
Only some members of ebay ripping me off for orders of service and table plan.
Get married at 1pm, not 2 – the day goes so quickly and we didn’t get a lot of time to chat because of photos etc.
