at Talmine Beach
Reception Venue – The Craggan Hotel, Melness.
A month later we continued the celebrations by having a marquee reception party with all our family and friends at Amber’s parents’ house (Nr Preston, Lancashire)
Photographer – The super talented SDM Photography.
Florist – I didn’t have flowers as I wanted to hold my children’s hands as we walked down from the house. The buttonholes from the Artisan Dried Flower Company.
Hair stylist – My bridesmaid Camille did her own and helped me with mine. My friend Sunny ‘curled’ the girls’ hair.
Make-up artist – Camille and I went to Bobbi Brown a few weeks before the wedding and bought some make-up. We wanted it to be a simplistic ceremony without any fuss.
Wedding dress – Bought from Halo & Ellis in Preston. I was going to go for a red dress, so I was ‘unconventionally conventional’ to Gary.
Shoes – Irregular Choice
Accessories – GA necklace of my two girls’ fingerprints which I had made when my youngest, Ella, was born.
Groom’s outfit – Slaters, Preston
Bridesmaids’ dresses – Debut, Debenhams; Flowergirls – Monsoon
Cake – The cake was created by Emmie, Ella, Poppy, Phoebe, Jazzy and George (the 6 children with us). It featured a sea scene and a pig (Ella’s contribution!) Amber managed to drop the whole cake on the floor at the reception. Miraculously, it landed upright!
Transport – Our feet! Our friend, Brad, in his 4×4 transported the boys to The Craggan prior to the ceremony. He then drove the wedding party there afterwards. Following the celebrations at The Craggan, Tracey (a fantastic member of staff from The Craggan) drove us all home.
