WHO: Kimberley and David

WHERE: Charlotte House, Lincoln

WHEN: May 2011




The proposal

“I knew from the moment I met David that I would spend the rest of my life with him,” smiles Kimberley. “For our first date, we actually ran away to Cancun in Mexico. It was the most impulsive, crazy and romantic thing I’ve ever done, but so worth it!” she adds. David popped the question during a break in the Lake District. “We were in a little rowing boat at the time – I nearly fell out from shock!” she laughs

Kimberley’s vintage-chic gown was from Charlotte Balbier’s Summer of Love collection. “I fell in love with her pretty and feminine designs, and the ‘Natasha’ gown was my one and only choice – I just had to have it,” says Kimberley

The accessories

Kimberley completed her real wedding look with a stunning hairband bought by her younger sister Catherine – the maid of honour. She also wore a vintage pearl necklace and her Grandmother’s gold leaf brooch clipped to her bouquet

The groom’s outfit

David looked smart in his dark-grey suit with an ivory waistcoat and cravat. The outfit was from David Jason’s of North Lincolnshire

“I walked down the aisle to Mumford and Sons – it reminds me of our engagement”

The bridesmaids

“I wanted my girls to wear really bright, spring-like colours that would work perfectly with our dusky-pink colour theme,” explains Kimberley. The four girls’ turquoise, strapless dresses were bought from Coast

The ceremony

“I walked down the aisle to Mumford and Sons’ Winter Winds, because it reminds us of the playlist we listened to when we got engaged in the Lake District,” recalls Kimberley. “My Dad walked me down the aisle and he was so nervous! I was a bit worried he might pass out,” she adds

The reception

The couple’s gorgeous three-tier ivory cake was made by a family friend. The couple and their guests enjoyed a rustic Lincolnshire hog roast with all the trimmings. Then later a disco was organised through the hotel. “We decided not to give any favours, but instead made sure there was lots of good food and wine to keep everyone happy!” remembers Kimberley. Floral decorations were provided by Lisa’s Oops-a-Daisy, who also created the bouquet

The honeymoon

The newlyweds chose to have a late honeymoon and visited Thailand in August. We hope they had fun!
