Your North East Wedding - March/April 2023 (Issue 55)

My bridesmaids wore forest-green gowns, as it’s one of my favourite colours and complemented our theme perfectly. Our magician, Martin Duffy, was a hit. He had the kids mesmerised – as you can see in this photo! A memory I’ll never forget is when the photographer and videographer took us, our bridesmaids and a few friends to some nearby fields to sing, dance and run about with smoke bombs! For the evening we also hired the band, Big Red and the Grinners. I saw them at a festival and fell in love with their style and professionalism. As my son walked me down the aisle my two-year-old grandson, Max, followed in fast pursuit! The photos of him standing with us as we’re about to get wed are hilarious! We hired a fantastic string quartet, who began 15 minutes before the ceremony and played the entrance song, register signing and exit song. 39 REAL WEDDINGS
