You know we love a wedding story here at AOW Towers. What can be better than a tale of love with a happy ending? Well, one with just the right amount of drama, of course! Throw in a farcical member of the clergy and I’m sold. Hook, link and sinker.
A big thank you to Kristelle and Dan for sharing their London wedding with us, beautifully illustrated by the talented Custard Cream Photography. I adore the vibrancy in Kristelle’s photos. They’ve really captured her spirit and her sense of fun. I love that she and Dan managed to laugh their way through things that would have caused many a bride to crumble into a mess of snot and tears. K, I salute you! May your positive approach be forever present in your marriage.Beautiful Kristelle. Image courtesy of Custard Cream Photography.
I’m not sure how to begin so will just say 23 June was the most memorable and amazing day of my life! I married the man I love, with friends and family around to love and support us.
We got engaged in December 2010 and I started planning straight away. Think ‘To Do’ list, Excel spreadsheets, wedding books, magazines and fairs! During this time some other lovely ladies I met got married. They all told me don’t panic over the small things, you won’t even notice if they go wrong. Oh boy, did things go wrong for us ( although I am proud to say these were none of the things I planned *smug grin*)! So much so I did notice, but it didn’t spoil or taint the memory of my day.Custard Cream Photography.
Here’s a brief synopsis;
The woman I had paid to decorate the venue had previously confirmed she would be on hand all day to help out. The night before she then said she would simply set up the room and leave. I almost fainted in the morning while having my hair done. The priest dropped BOTH our rings down the church grate, my husbands was found within 5 mins but I ended up getting married with my mum’s ring. When we left the church it started to rain so we didn’t get any group pictures. I popped the back of my wedding dress when I sat down in the car from the church and, just when we thought nothing more could go wrong, when I arrived at the reception the venue decorator had set up the wrong sideshow despite my (what I thought was) fool proof instructions.Thanks to Custard Cream Photography.
Despite all of the above I wouldn’t change my day for anything. Oh, and they found my ring and bought it to the reception about 1 and a half hours after we got married! I married the man I love and that’s all that mattered. Yes, there were some tears but there were a hell of a lot more smiles and laughter. So many people said it was one of the best weddings they had been to.Custard Cream Photography.
We ate, drank, laughed and rocked the dance floor until 1am. I was on such a natural high all day! When we got to our room we stayed up for a couple more hours (get your mind out the gutter!) we were talking (well for some of it ) about how great the day had been and how much we loved each other.Custard Cream Photography.
I know this isn’t your usual report but I just wanted to let others know that although things may go wrong, your wedding day will still be the most amazing day.
Here’s some pics for ya (now you tell me if they show any trace of the drama that went before them!).Custard Cream Photography.
