Katherine and Anthony married in June at Upper Court, Kemerton.
Traditional influences combined with contemporary touches and imagination make this simple and effectively styled wedding a timeless classic.
I’ll pass you over to Katherine for all the details…
The Height Of Fashion
My shoes were sky High! My husband is 6ft 3 so I have 4 inch heels on, and kept them on all night!
Make up I did myself after a vital lesson with some MAC advisors! My hair was done by a local hairdresser from Cheltenham to be sure they would turn up on the day as I cant do my hair myself!
We had the most beautiful flowers and were put together by Broadway Florist. They gave us so many ideas on other things to do with our wedding that they practically became our wedding planners.
Our florist gave us an idea for our colour scheme of midnight blue! Suits were hired from Moss Bros.
Anthony was in a suit from Moss Bros. Sounds corny but I only noticed him smiling as I walked down the aisle, it wasn’t until afterwards that I noticed how smartly turned out he was.
Richard Jones was our photographer, he was recommended by a friend and I knew he was our man the minute I saw his website. We could not have been happier with the photographs, he captured our day perfectly.
We went for cup cakes to avoid our caterer having to cut the cake up, we got the idea from a friend and it was loved by all. We had some chocolate and some vanilla.
Pop, Rock And Cheese
We had a DJ, one of the important parts of our day was the music and because our guests had to leave at 11.30pm we wanted 3 hours of dancing, and thats what we got! We wanted pop, rock and cheese music and thats what we got – I knew we had made the right choice when he played “We built this city”.
The One For Us
It was Olly Murs, Dance with me. We were keen to have a song to dance lively to that could get the crowd going. This was played when we were together on NYE and we looked at each other and knew it was the one for us. So cheesy I know!
For Favours we went to fortune cookies which had a funny message inside to provide a talking point amongst guests over dinner.
A Beautiful Venue
The venue was so beatiful that it kind of spoke for itself, we didn;t feel the need to add any additional decor or decorations.
Enjoy Every second
My husband is South African so the fact all his nearest and dearest travelled over was very special. My best piece of advice would be to put your dress on about 45mins before leaving the house so that you can get some “before” photos.
This will be the only day you get to wear it so dont leave it until the last minute, enjoy every second.
