This wedding really should come with a nudity warning… During the speeches Paul decided to reveal arguably slightly too much about himself. I’m not really sure why, but some things are best left unexplained 🙂
However, it’s not the flesh on display that’s referenced by the “blue” in the title to today’s wedding… It’s the casual and relaxed classic blue colour scheme, lifted with the occasional accent of green and yellow.
Dress Number 2
A Sassi Veil
I wore my most-favourite-of-all-time (and a bit worn) Kurt Geiger pink satin peep toe shoes with a snakeskin mega heel – awesome! )
Genie In a Bottle
I had my hair put up with loose ringlets: A bit Christina Aguilera of old. My make-up was by Lauren Dunn from Channel 4’s 4Beautyteam. She was brilliant and gave me bright blue eyes.
I adored the flowers. We had blue hydrangea bouquets; blue agapanthas; delphinium and hydrangea. Wendy from Sonning Flowers in Reading was brilliant.
In The Navy
For our Groomsmen and we bought navy suits with blue ties and blue/lime green buttonholes.
Dressed To Kill
Paul wore a tailor made 3 piece suit from Dress2Kill. He looked trim and fab (until he got his red cabbage tattoo out in the speeches).
A Perfect Day
Jodan and Innes from Source Images were amazing and they were brilliant people too. The images are beyond my dreams and a perfect record of a perfect day.
A Bit Cheesy
We decided to have a cheese cake (Literally) with tiers of cheese from La Fromagerie in Marlyebone. PJ helped us choose it all and found the heart shaped camembert to it. We served the cheese with bottles of port to finish the night off.
Loud And Proud
We used a local DJ to provide entertainment. There was a strict decibel limit at the venue which we kept exceeding. This was an amusing near-disaster!
A Very First Dance
Our first dance was to Human by The Killers. It was the first song we ever danced to (aaahhh!!)
Jo and Andre De Jong, awesome event experts, themed the entrance and link room with quirky candles and boutique chic glass candelabras.
Up-lit with blue and green lights it absolutely transformed the ‘weaker’ area’s of the venue.
An Amazing Team
Alanna Mells at The Olde Bell is the best wedding organiser I can imagine and James and the team were amazing with the food and service.
Frankie Says Relax
My one piece of advice would be just try to be totally relaxed about the whole day, then nothing will disappoint you and you will have an absolute ball.

Gill says to relax, that might be easier said than done for some of us – but if you can manage it, it’ll really show though on the day and in your photos. Of course it helps to have a great photography team on standby and Source Images never fail to produce classic and timeless imagery with comfortable and natural looking portraits.
