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

COME TRUE Dreams Nadine and George’s big day was a fairy tale inspired by Cinderella Images courtesy of Creative Images Photography As a little girl Nadine had seen a black and white photo of a man on one knee proposing to his love, with the Paris skyline behind them. When she began dating George, aged 17, she came across the image again and told him that it was her dream to experience that same kind of magic one day. Lo and behold, a few days before her 21st birthday, George surprised her with a trip to Paris and proposed there, beneath the Eiffel Tower. “He’d remembered that photo for all those years and without saying a word to anyone about it, he made my dream come true,” Nadine tells us. The couple looked at wedding venues all over the UK from Scotland to Stratford-Upon-Avon and saw so many stunning places, but eventually decided on Crewe Hall in Cheshire. “As soon as we saw it we fell in love with the architecture, décor and gardens,” Nadine explains. They had their heart set on saying “I do” in a church, but not being from the area they turned to Crewe Hall’s wedding planner, who Nadine describes as “an absolute angel,” for recommendations. She advised them to take a look at St Mary’s in Nantwich, which turned out to be the perfect match. The wedding’s colour palette was blush pink and pale blue. Nadine explains, “The colours reminded me so much of Cinderella, my favourite film growing up.” Once this was settled, the rest fell into place.
