Your Cheshire and Merseyside Wedding - March/April 2022 (Issue 62)

Jesus Martin on the sax. “They were both incredible and made the night. Everyone loved the music and the dancefloor was full all night,” Abbie remembers. MEMORABLE MOMENTS Abbie says, “Greg was fairly calm before the ceremony, but was extremely nervous about his speech. Once the music began and he stood at the end of the aisle waiting for me, he became overwhelmed with emotion and can’t remember anything from that point on!” Greg says, “Abbie didn’t manage to sleep much at all the night before, which only made the nerves worse in the morning. It was emotional for her getting ready with her bridesmaids and family, but as soon as she was with her dad, Cliff, she felt calm and ready to walk down the aisle.” The speeches were the part of the day that stood out most for both bride and groom. They weren’t originally going to have any as both groom and father-ofthe-bride knew how nervous they would be, but in the end their humour and genuine emotion shone through and they felt pleased with how everything went. “We’ve never seen so many men cry in one room,” Abbie laughs. The duo are incredibly grateful to all of their suppliers who were unbelievably helpful and made the day so special. Thanks go out to Alicia and Paul from Talhenbont Hall. Abbie says, “Even though we had to change the date due to Covid all suppliers were happy to make things as easy as possible for us and saved us so much stress. We can’t thank them all enough.” Before parting ways, the bride shares her top tip, “It’s easier said than done, but don’t let the stress and nerves build up before the big day, because once it arrives it’ll be the quickest day of your life and you’ll realise there was literally nothing to worry about. Everyone just wants the best for you, no matter what happens.” “We feel blessed to have been able to have the wedding of our dreams, with no restrictions, as this hasn’t been the case for everyone.” – Abbie 27 REAL WEDDINGS
