Candy carnival brights made Amy and Adam’s red and blue wedding extra cute! Disney songs to dance to and sweet treats for the guests helped make this wedding bright and beautiful.
When Adam insisted on taking Amy out for dinner one evening, she was reluctant. “I wasn’t looking my best after a long day at work,” she explains. “But when Adam got down on one knee after the meal and pulled out a ring box, I screamed with excitement before finally saying yes!” The whole restaurant applauded and the couple on the table next to them bought them champagne!
The bride’s outfit
Amy’s stunning dress and bolero was by Ronald Joyce, which she purchased from Hinxworth Bridal in Bedfordshire. She’d always wanted a short dress and tried on 10 before finding this two-looks-for-one number, which suited her so perfectly that everyone cried when she first put it on. Not wanting anything too ‘bling’, Amy kept her accessories to a minimum, choosing a flower crown from Rock ‘n’ Rose and shoes from Next!
The groom’s outfit
Adam’s suit was also from Next, his shirt was from Hugo Boss and his funky spotty bow tie came from River Island.
Amy was attended by four bridesmaids who all found their lovely aqua blue skater-style dresses in Dorothy Perkins. Accessorising with matching red shoes, red clutch bags and red flowers from Claire’s.
Unfortunately, it started to rain just as Amy was due to leave for the ceremony, but it didn’t dampen spirits! Giant umbrellas were used to keep the girls dry as they walked round the lake and Amy’s dad walked her down the aisle, which is where she noticed Adam was really emotional. “When I reached him, he whispered to me ‘you look incredible!’, it was the most amazing moment.” remembers Amy.
The couple’s guests were treated to a choice of three BBQ meats, followed by Eton Mess, which is a favourite for the couple. Disney songs played throughout the wedding breakfast, causing guests to burst out in song. Some even got out of their seats to dance! “It was brilliant!” says Amy.
A team of 10 of the couple’s nearest and dearest spent the day before the wedding running round, preparing Minstrel Court for the big day. Decorations included pompoms, bunting, balloons, popcorn boxes filled with flowers for the tablecentres, and pretty jars filled with stunning gypsophilia. Amy and Adam used Sarah Dempster from the Flower Hut in Stotford as their florist, and the fab three-tier cake was by Sylvie’s Cake Creations in Biggleswade. Co-Jones from St Albans entertained guests throughout the evening, including playing the couple’s first dance to Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours by Stevie Wonder. Amy’s grandad even made a kissing booth, and each guest received a sweet personalised bag of jelly beans, which looked great on the table.
Amy and Adam enjoyed a two week break in Florida, where they met Mickey and Minnie. “It was the best two weeks of our lives!” Amy says.
