    Our Wedding Report

    20th September 2010

    We both wanted a small, relaxed wedding with special family and friends present. Although it was small and I had only five months to organise our day I still wanted it be special.

    I loved planning and organising everything and even though I thought I was very unartistic I thoroughy enjoyed making our stationary and favours and designing and decorating our room.

    The venue we chose was the first and only one we visited. As we were only having 25 guests I was worried they would be lost in many of the venues on offer but when we visisted Shrigley Hall near Macclesfield two of the smaller rooms were perfect for our ceremony and our wedding breakfast.
    The Boardroom where we held the ceremony had fantastic character and despite only ever seeing it laid for meetings it looked perfect on the day and seemed fitting for our ceremony.

    Shrigley Hall

    The Woodford Suite looked fantastic I cannot take credit for the chair bows but everything else was put together by me.

    Wedding Report Part 2

    We had a lovely evening on the night before our wedding as all of my family were staying at Shrigley Hall with me so the room was decorated and then we had an informal dinner and then Andy left me there as he was staying at home.

    I didn't think I would sleep but managed a few hours on and off and then met everyone for breakfast. I was very nervous so just tried to take each step at a time: get up - simple, have some breakfast - easy, but my heart was pounding and it was hard to relax.

    I was looking forward to Rachael my make-up artist arriving as I had changed my mind since my trial and was keen to see what she could do. I was not disappointed - I was so pleased with my hair and my make-up.


    My flowers arrived and they were gorgeous too as were the boys buttonholes.

    Part 3

    We weren't getting married until 2 o' clock but before I knew it my hair and make up was done and I could see the men having their pictures taken outside so it was time to put my dress on for my turn.

    By now the registrar arrived and soon it was time to make my way downstairs to my wedding - I couldn't wait but was also so nervous.

    Our ceremony was absolutely lovely, made extra special by our lovely registrar and my son for his poem he read - he had nearly everyone in tears.

    Signing the register

    That all looks fab. Well done for all the hard work you've put in. Where did you get the Mr and Mrs sign? It looks lovely, and I'd love to get something like that myself.
