Mike & Amy
Im sat here writing about Mike & Amy's wedding a couple of months after the big day and the one thought that keeps cropping up is 'ADOPT ME'!! Seriously... if I could be a part of any family it would be this one...! The location being the family home could not have fitted this wedding day more perfectly.
The day itself was just a huge celebration of Family & Love with Amy's brother actually marrying them too... add in copious amounts of prosecco and you have a day to remember.
SOME WORDS FROM AMY...
THE DAY : The vision was a garden wedding, full of flowers and candles. Very family orientated and as relaxed as possible. Which is exactly what we got! Since being a little girl, I had always wanted a marquee wedding.
When we moved to The Coach House, Mum and I would sometimes get a glass of prosecco and wander round the garden "measuring" it, to see if it would fit one. I was thrilled when Mike said he liked the idea.
Choosing bridesmaids was easy - my two nieces and best friend. But Mike's honorary nieces had to be too! Was so happy to ask my brother to give the wedding talk and marry us. All very emotional. My mum and dad were amazing, organising everything just the way we wanted it to be.
Flowers were stunning and we did a lot of them ourselves too - my Mum worked endlessly on them, deadheading margerite's at 6:30am every day!
For me it was such a relaxing day (after the initial nerves) filled with fun, laughter and love. Highlight being the amazing secret project that my brothers and sisters set up. Loved every minute of it.
