Chris and Lisa

Heart pounding, palms sweating, adrenaline pumping. Chris was overwhelmed with excitement as he stood patiently waiting for his bride to be at the registrar’s desk. Dressed in a dark blue suit with a white shirt and red tie, (he was very specific about wanting a red tie) Chris looked handsome surrounded by his groomsmen. Little did he know, admiring from a far, Lisa was peeking through the entrance door, in order to calm her nerves by seeing her prince charming. After, what seemed like a lifetime, Lisa took her final deep breath and stepped into the Sheriff’s office in her sparkly, open-toed, ivory heels, towards her future. The aisle was dressed in meadow flowers of blue, red and yellow, which resonated in the theme and colour scheme of this intimate wedding. Lisa looked breath taking as she walked down the aisle, in her Stella York wedding gown, with her hair tied up to show off the intricate details of this stunning dress and paired with a mid-length, ivory veil. In awe, Chris welled up with sheer happiness, triggering Lisa’s incredulous emotions and the pair shed a tear each as they said ‘I do’, to their soul mate.


Where was the wedding?

We were married at Nottingham Registry Office in the Sheriff’s office and held the reception in a marquee in one of Chris’s fields

How did you choose your suppliers?

Chance, I think really! We found the caterer by doing a local search on the Internet, the flowers came through visiting the bridal shop and the photographer through the photography group my dad is a member of. We also came across the marquee company through a local search on the Internet and they also supplied tables, chairs etc. We were lucky and we would definitely recommend all the suppliers we used.


How and why did you select your florist?

Mary had been so brilliant with me with the selecting of my wedding dress that it seemed perfect to go with her for the flowers too. The bouquets in the picture album she showed us looked beautiful and we felt the prices were very reasonable.

Do you have any top tips on how to get the most out of your photographer?

First top tip is to use Screen Photography as your photographer! Paul was brilliant with us and put tremendous energy into our day. He worked brilliantly with the long list of formal photos I gave him and he’s come up with lovely informal shots too. I would also suggest spending time with the photographer going through what you would like and explaining the feel of the wedding.

If you could go back to the planning stage of your wedding, what would you do differently and why?

We underestimated the work required to putting on a wedding reception on our own turf. If we could back to the planning stage, we would probably enlist more help much earlier in the process.


What is the best piece of advice you could offer another bride?

Do everything you can to minimise wedding preparation stress. This is far too a precious moment to allow yourself to get stressed. All that matters are you and your partner declaring your love for each other, the rest is merely details.

What are you most looking forward too about married life?

Being together forever.
