Kerie was getting ready at King's Croft having her hair and makeup done by Nikki and Raya of Nouveau Hair and Beauty from South Elmsall. The dress was hung at the bottom of the four poster bed. A pure white princess dress, with layers of net and a long, long, long cathedral veil. Kerie spotted the dress in Wed2B and it was the first one she tried on but she fell in love with it straight away. It was a full dress and Kerie would recommend to other brides to try something lighter and not too big as she found sitting uncomfortable and had to stand most of the time. After buying the dress Wendie from Perfect Fit Bridal Couture completely transformed it, adding soft and romantic tulle sleeves. Wendie works miracles so if you need a seamstress she is the one to look up. The bridesmaids dresses all had individually named hangers and were hanging from the window pole. They were light-weight in dusky pink with steel grey sashes; obtained from Coast. The flowers had just arrived, hand delivered by Georgina from Mrs Bouquets. The bride had a beautiful bouquet of cream and pink roses set among gypsophila and would really complement the dresses. The bridesmaid were to carry bouquets of gypsophila - my favourite!
A few finishing touches for the bride and her girls and it was ready to go.A few tears from dad, Steve, and mum Lynn and then Bill, toastmaster stroke master of ceremonies, from Kings Croft gave the knock. He is so down to earth and a real gentleman - making sure the whole event goes like clockwork. It was so cold but thankfully no rain.
The meal came and went. Followed by really heart-felt speeches from the chaps. Ewan conveying his endless love for his new wife. The cake was so emotional - in tiers. It was made by Lisa of White Rose Wedding Cakes. All pink and lovely! This led onto a few more photos - these are proper Yorkshire folk - a bit of a chill would not beat them! Then is was all systems go for the reception. Kerie said it was so hectic looking back. It was a non-stop day and there is just not enough time to take it all in.
The final words to others planning a wedding: Plan, plan plan! Try to do as much as possible early as you will find you quickly run out of time.
