This weekend saw Lindsay marry her best friend Dave at Newton Hall in Alnwick, Northumberland. Every wedding morning I get to spend with a bride, her maids and family reminds me what a privileged role I have. But this bride and this wedding in particular felt very special to me. Lindsay first booked my services on recommendation from Nikki Foster at The I Do Touch over a year ago. Ever since we met at her trial earlier this year we have chatted back and forth about all sorts of things and got to know each other really well – particularly her knowledge of skin primers!
A very early start saw me and my partner for the day Emily Hawkes knocking on Lindsay’s bedroom door at 6am. From then onwards the very busy morning was filled with fun and laughter, tears of joy and lots of homemade juice drink!
The brides tiara and bridesmaids hair pins were made by the very talented Gillian Million, they looked like tiny bubbles exploding just gorgeous. The dress, oh my goodness the dress was a divine champagne coloured Jenny Packham design which was topped by a silk finger tip veil. The shoes, by Love Art Wear Art from Liberty in Love fitted into the whole theme just perfectly. Lindsay wore a silver sixpence in one shoe and her Grandad’s ring fastened to the ankle strap of another.
The bridesmaids looked like they were sweets with their delicately coloured green, pink and lilac dresses from Maids to Measure. Added to this the beautiful blooms provided by the team at Horti-couture made the room smelt gorgeous and the ladies looked sunning.
As we waved them off, I wished we were joining in with the fun and festivities that they were going to experience as this was a truly beautiful bride and a lovely lovely family. Dave you’re a very lucky man. Congratulations and have a fab honeymoon xx
