Lindsey and Matt married in a classic and traditional wedding, with a light blue colour scheme that was fresh, pretty and perfect for a Spring wedding!
Love blossomed between Lindsey and Matt when they met at a work Christmas party. “I really liked him, but he was only meant to be working in Norfolk to six months,” Lindsey recalls. “Luckily, after a few dates he decided to stay.” Matt popped the question at Lindsey’s favourite restaurant. “He surprised me by booking a suite, and while we were having champagne in our room before dinner, he got down on one knee, ” Lindsey says. “He definitely caught me off guard!”
The bride’s outfit
Lindsey wore a beautiful strapless fishtail gown in lace with pearls and diamantés from Ellis Bridal. “Although I didn’t get emotional when I tried it on, I knew I didn’t have to look anymore,” explains Lindsey. Once I’d had the alterations and it fitted perfectly, I knew I’d picked the right one.” Lindsey added a blue topaz and diamond necklace, diamond stud earrings and shoes from Jimmy Choo. “I fell in love with them when I saw them,” she smiles.
The groom’s outfit
Matt wore grey tails with a platinum tie and pocket square from Slaters. “He looked very smart – I was so excited to see him,” Lindsey remembers.
The three maids’ gowns were designed by the bride and made by a local dressmaker Marie Hamilton. “The girls all have different styles so I knew I wouldn’t get them in the same dress,” explains Lindsey. “I designed each dress and made sure everyone was happy with them before Marie got to work.”
The couple were married in a civil ceremony at Kimberly Hall. “I walked down the aisle to Edelweiss, which is from my favourite film and is also one of my late grandpa’s favourite songs,” Lindsey says. “We had a jazz singer and pianist playing while we signed the register, and we walked out to Signed, Sealed, Delivered.”
Lindsey and Matt opted for a classic wedding theme with a white, ivory and pale blue colour palette. “We decorated with flowers and candles, and I made a decoupage Mr & Mrs sign for our card table, and displayed old family wedding photos,” says Lindsey. The couple made strawberry and vanilla jam and spicy tomato chutney to give as favours, while the children were given jars of M&Ms in the wedding colours. “We also had lawn games and a photobooth, and hired a local band, Captain Scarlet, who got everyone on the dancefloor,” Lindsey adds.
Lindsey and Matt treated themselves to a twin-centre honeymoon, spending 10 days exploring Canada before travelling on to Antigua.
