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

HOLLYWOOD GLAM Inspired by the old Hollywood style, Nadine visited an independent designer whose work she has admired for many years. The bride tells us more: “I wanted something timeless and classic over something trendy. My design was a combination of Elizabeth Taylor’s first wedding dress when she married Conrad Hilton in 1950 and the design of Aurora’s dress in Walt Disney’s 1959 Sleeping Beauty.” The groom wore a classic royal blue Ted Baker suit, and instead of a waistcoat to match the groomsmen, his was sky blue. Since they were due to get married in May 2020, the groomsmen’s suits were several seasons old and out of stock by the time they were finally able to wear them in July 2021. Thankfully the staff at Slater Menswear managed to track them down in time saving the day. The bridesmaids’ gowns were custom made and made the girls wearing them feel confident, comfortable and glamorous. They were pale blue, Bardot style and floor-length. For a final touch, Nadine’s dress designer added some pale pink lace appliqués to the waists to tie in the colour palette. FEELING GOOD James Wedding Singer performed during the wedding breakfast. “We love Michael Buble and the classic crooner style of music, as well as being huge country music fans. James went out of his way to perform all our favourites and even arranged to have George sing to me during his wedding speech. He brought such a good atmosphere with him and had our guests up dancing between courses.” THE DREAM MAKERS Venue and catering, Crewe Hall, | Photographer, Creative Images Photography, | Dress, Anna Sanders Atelier, | Jewellery and accessories, Eden Luxe Bridal, | Hair stylist, Louisa Coltman, Make-up artist, S.E.T Makeup, | Suits, Slater Menswear, | Cake, Dawn Gagg Cakes and Cupcakes, | Flowers, The White Orchid Floral Boutique, Transport, Horgans Wedding Cars, | Horse and Carriage Masters Ltd, Stationery, The Paper Doll, | Wedding rings, Ritz Diamonds, | Venue styling, Lincolnshire Prop Hire, | Entertainment, James Wedding Singer, 45 REAL WEDDINGS
