We got married on 22nd October 2011 at 1.30pm at the Holiday Inn East, Newport Pagnell. We chose this hotel following attending a wedding there several years before, we had been so impressed with the venue and the pleasant staff that when we came to have a look for ourselves we were convinced it was a great venue for us. The front of the hotel is also stunning, the Georgian building provided a great backdrop to our pictures.
My wedding dress was Dion by Maggie Sottero, which was a stunning dress draped in satin with gorgeous overlay on front and sides with a lot of beading detail, it also had stunning detail on the back where it was corseted.
I had my Wrapor made to match my dress, I had seen Wrapor being raved about on the wedding forums so I looked it up for myself and I knew that it was what I was looking for. I needed something that would be perfect for my October wedding but not detract from my stunning dress.I went with the chiffon shrug with Swarovski crystals scattered on top.
When it arrived, it matched my dress totally which I was so pleased with, I was also very impressed with the service from Kay, when I needed the Wrapor let out a little she was more than happy for me to send it back to be let our a little, and in the end it fitted me perfectly and I was so happy with it on my wedding day. It made me feel extra special and gave me that added confidence.
I also wore a tiara and earrings by glitzy secrets, both of which added a little sparkly to my outfit, and tied in well with the gorgeous crystals on my Wrapor. The wedding colours were pale pink, chocolate brown and ivory. I wanted to tie the pink and chocolate in as much as I could as I felt that these two colours look so lovely together.
The flowers came from Silk Blooms who I found on line, and after seeing their great reviews, and once I talked to them about what I was looking for I knew I had made the right choice.
Mara from silk blooms worked with me to make exactly what I was looking for and they turned out perfectly. The bridesmaids carried all pink and I had pink and ivory roses, which where then mimicked in the ceremony table flowers. These looked so vibrant in the pictures and even better I can now keep my bridal bouquet forever.
The groom wore chocolate and ivory vest/cravat along with the best man, and the bride’s grandfather, and then the ushers wore baby pink with their suits.
The ceremony room and the pillars restaurant are both gorgeous light rooms, and in the pale cream colours that make adding your personal colour scheme very easy
For the reception room the chair covers where alternated between the tables, I wanted the room to sparkle and glisten so went with candelabras for the tables and we had the pillars decorated with organza and lights. Which with the sun shining so brightly really made the room look amazing.
I assembled the wedding favours myself, the mini chocolate bars came from Green and Blacks, they were then wrapped in chocolate brown ribbon, and the home made name tags were then attached with a small silver rose to each favour.
I also made the table numbers & the menus which sat on the tables, as well as taking on the task of setting up the candy bar the morning of the wedding.
The ‘just married’ sign, I had this sign made originally to be used for us to pose with for the picture for out Thank-you cards, but our photographer was great and she slipped it into a few more pictures which came out fabulously.
Our wedding photographer was ‘Lisa Reeves Photography’ who is based in Bedfordshire, she provided an excellent service on the wedding day, and it was truly like having one of my friends taking our wedding pictures.
Many thanks for sharing your big day with us Jane, you look fabulous!!
