Claire & Dan booked us 2 years ago for their wedding and so I felt like I knew her pretty well before her wedding day especially seeing them at her friend Rachel’s wedding too 😉
They got married at Kenwood Hall – not far from where we live – the grounds are pretty amazing and there was even a squirrel to keep us entertained while Claire had her make up done. I arrived as Claire’s bridesmaids and Mum were writing her good luck messages on the soles of her shoes which is a brilliant idea. Claire looked stunning, bling on her toes, big hair and a beautiful gown. Her bouquet was made by her sister from family brooches including a locket and other personal pins.
Claire was keen to be on time so headed off through the hotel with her family. Dan was waiting at the other side of the hotel. After the ceremony guests mingled on the lawn before heading indoors for the meal.
The venue was dressed with spectacular floral displays of pinks and greens and each guest had their own little cake pop topiary tree as a favour – yum! Speeches were emotional – Dan brought a tear to many eyes. Guests listened to a musician in the evening and helped themselves to sweets.
The first dance was amazing with the sparkly dancefloor – such a great idea.
We wish you both so much love and happiness for the future. I have never laughed so much during bridal preparations – you two are fab 🙂
