Steph & Andy! What an adventure we’ve been on over the last 3 years. Three wedding dates and a vision of love you beautifully cultivated. I thank god for having the most amazing couples who recommend me to everyone, the love I have for them will last a lifetime (So thank you Kelly & joe – Kim & George) for introducing us. Andy & Steph are the loveliest of people and are so clearly meant-to-be for each other.
I started lighting candles early in the week, (my usual prayer for no rain) then realised I needed to stop when I saw the 29-degree temperature forecast. It was probably for the best because we’d have melted into puddles. The sunshine was cracking the flags when I turned up at Steph’s parents’ house. It was overflowing with gorgeous bridesmaids and fabulous friends busying themselves and enjoying the relaxing run up to the wedding ceremony. Peter and Linda treated me like family, and you really could feel the love and excitement in the whole house. Steph is gorgeous, inside and out, and even more so because she is so oblivious to her beauty, it was wonderful that the big day was finally here. The time flew by so quickly, and before long, it was time to race to the venue to meet our groom Andy and his friends.
I got to The Mere Golf Resort & Spa, in Knutsford, to meet Andy, rocking up in a stunning Aston Martin, my favourite car, a surprise from his Bride. Ill be honest, I was fawning all over it for so long I had to remind myself I had a job to do. Andy was handsome as ever and very calm and collected (this is a man who knows he’s found his queen). Andy’s groomsmen were such a fantastic group of friends and everyone in stitches with their antics. They were on hand to make sure everyone was in their place for the big moment. Just as the bride arrived, the temperature gauge reached 29 degrees. The lake was in front of us, and we were under the bluest and most beautiful cloudless sky. Led by her gorgeous bridesmaids, on the arm of her proud Dad, Steph took everyone’s breath away, Mostly Andy’s.
When the ‘I Do’s’ turned into ‘We did it’, I stole the happy couple for a tour of the beautiful grounds. We took a joyride on a golf buggy and had some fun. The whole day was so magical. We’ve all been locked up for so long you could just see and feel the joy, and the love, and the happiness of friends and families, just so happy to be with each other and share in this long ‘dreamed for’ day. I think I cried about 6 times. My cup runneth over.
The happy couple had the most incredible wedding breakfast (thank you for my incredible feast), and before long, the sun was setting, and it was time to kick off those shoes and hit the dancefloor with ‘Soul Revolver Music’ Band. There were so many shapes being thrown to the beat and I loved every minute and worked until my body quit. Steph & Andy’s wedding was everything I dreamed it would be and more. I LOVE your friends and family, and can’t wait for the next wedding when I get to see you all again. Wishing you both, more joy, love, happiness, understanding and adventure in your new married lives together. You told me I was your greatest investment you made for your wedding. Thank you, you don’t know what that meant to me after such a tough couple of years. Until the next wedding my friends, Much love xxx
