Amy and Gareth tie the knot

Wow, was this the young lady I was speaking with only a few days earlier at Waterton Park? Her hair and make-up were finished when I arrived at about 10.00am on 27th May. She looked stunning, stood in her white bride-2-be gown. Kym Hurst had really made Amy look radiant. Her dress from Confetti and Lace was hung on the wardrobe waiting to be slipped on. It was a lace up and semi-fishtail style. It looked so slender hanging there. Amy told me that she went shopping with her Maid of Honour; she spotted the dress and told her to try it on. "When I did both her and the shop assistant burst into tears. That's how I knew it was the one". The bridesmaid dresses also came form Confetti and Lace and these were in coral taffeta. The flowers arrived later brought by Mum and these were pastel roses in cream and coral to match the dresses. The bride had a teardrop bouquet, all supplied by The Flower Shack.




So off to see the chaps. Of course they were over the bridge in Walton Hall. I expected to find them in Charlie's Bar but they were being good chatting in the sunshine at the front. The best man didn't have the rings - these were being guarded by Amy - just in case! They had chosen these at H Samuel. The fellas really did look smart. Gareth looked amazing. I don't think he is used to suit and tie but the suits from Top Mark made him and the fellas look like proper gentlemen.


The ceremony went really well. The registrars from Wakefield are always so kind and gentle. Amy read a lovely piece to Gareth and there were also tear-jerking reading from Amy's Mum and her partner. Really lovely. Later to be followed by a wedding breakfast and more tear-jerking words from Amy's Mum and a few words from Gareth which truly showed how much he adores Amy. What a gentleman he is. Wedding venue lighting supplied the aisle runner, twinkling arch, twinkling cake table, swags and twinkling top table swag.
Then the party! Dancing to Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud".  "Gaz heard this song before it was even released and said he immediately thought of me so that's why we chose it" Resident DJ Shane kept banging out the tunes until midnight.


I wanted to know more about these two! Amy told me she met Gareth about 8 years ago through mutual friends. Gaz put rose petals all over Amy's bed on her birthday and then got down on one knee when she saw them. How romantic.
So how did you enjoy the day? "Waterton Park is an amazing place with lovely staff. It has been the best day of my life - a lot better than I ever imagined it would be. The food was excellent and our three children made a speech which made me so proud and made me cry."
Any advice for others Amy? "Don't stress, enjoy the planning and the run up because it flies by and before you know it the day has been and gone. I don't normally like having my photograph taken but on the day I was really at ease."
Honeymoon? "We are just having a little weekend away. Just the two of us in Leicestershire".

All of us at Altered Images wish you both every happiness and a long life together. What an amazing couple.
