your love story...
"rob and i met 14 years ago in an all you can eat chinese buffet up merryhill at the age of 16! (a well known place you could go for a cheeky smirnoff ice and a beer without being id'd). i was with my girls a week after celebrating my 16th birthday and rob was with a group of lads on the karaoke!
rob asked for my number and we were really good friends for years! 2013 rob and i finally got together and i honestly haven't looked back since! Nearly 9 years together, one house, 2 of the cutest sausage dogs, an engagement and finally after our 15 month covid postponement we finally married!"
the big day...
WHAT. A. DAY.
"The morning was bliss, it started with a lovely breakfast grazing platter for myself, my bridesmaids and mum. we popped open a magnum of verve clicquot and started to get ready with my hairdresser of over 10 years (it was like having another friend there) and the most incredible mua, who was - so friendly.
i felt like a princess.
One of the most magical parts of the day for me was the dress reveal, only my mum and moh had seen me in my dress. the emotions were HIGH. then it was time to walk down the aisle! i had the most amazing one-man band, simon hall singing and playing the guitar to "all my love" - george ezra, which i ended up belting out loud singing to it to hide my dads nerves! we got married outside, in the secret garden and it was perfect.
the wedding breakfast was delicious - although i actually couldn't eat a thing! we had lots of compliments, the speeches were incredible! dad, robs and his brothers darren - the best man.
the night guests soon arrived and we made our way to the marquee! i had the most amazing balloon/sequin wall/ selfie camera set up. a sweet cart, box full of flip flops and some fleecy blankets! the dj, saxophonist and percussionist were simply insane - they really got the party started and mingled through the dance floor dancing with the guests. if i spoke about everything i would be here for days. BUT it's a day I will never ever forget.
working with kirsty...
kirsty was a DREAM.
rob and i wanted colour. oranges. peaches. creams. and kirsty did just that. we designed the most gorgeous save the dates, invitations, wedding stationery and thank you cards. all matched with our décor so well. i was over the moon with the quality with reasonable prices. kirsty communicated well and came up with the most creative designs.
i trusted kirsty and i just let her run wild with the designs!
