Local couple Terri and Rob got married last month at Wychwood Park, in the Cheshire countryside on a gorgeous sunny day. "It was the perfect choice... and the day went seamlessly."
It all started about 6 years ago for Terri and Rob, who met through mutual friends, on a Grand National Day. Our bride says: "Rob turned up a little late because he had been out watching it in Nantwich!" But they hit if off from there, and a few years later, Rob proposed in London on the pavement outside the Gordon Ramsay restaurant (The York & Albany). He had initially planned to propose in Regents Park, which was over the road, but had to improvise on the moment because they were late for their reservation due to the tube running late!
The theme for their wedding was very vintage. And they also had some (unintentional!) hints of Alice in Wonderland sneaking in, with lots of colours: lilac, gold, light pink and navy. In keeping with the vintage theme, Terri had her headpiece custom-made by Blue Lily Magnolia - double combs with fabric flowers, joined by draping freshwater pearls. The bridesmaids also had matching hair combs made.
As customary, on the night before, Terri stayed over with her bridesmaids. But the super organised bride-to-be felt that she had to double check her venue rooms before the big moment, so she sneaked down at 6am before the girls were up to check it out! She needn't have worried, and even the weather was in their favour on the day. The lucky two got married outside, on a glorious sunny day, under a wooden gazebo.
After the ceremony, Terri and Rob ran off to their car and did not stop for anyone. They were driven around in a vintage car through Crewe and Nantwich, sipping champagne and enjoying some quiet time alone together. When asked about other special moments about their big day, Terri remembers fondly: "The chief bridesmaid drove the golf buggy between photo locations (she had passed her test but had never driven before), Rob and I have never felt so scared for our lives!" The first dance was also a big moment: "I was so looking forward to our first dance as Rob had picked the perfect song but when it actually came round we were counting down the minutes until it ended (whilst trying to look smily) as we were surrounded by all the wedding party with their cameras for the longest 4 minutes of our lives!"
Terri's beautiful lace dress was by Mori Lee and her bouquet was from Flowers On the Cobbles in Sandbach. Photos kindly shared by the bride were taken by guests. Many thanks to the happy couple for sharing their story with us, and a huge congratulations to them both!
Terri's unique custom-made double hair combs were created after she sent over her ideas using inspiration from other headpieces that she loved. The bridesmaids hair combs consisted of a similar flower with pearl bead dangles, but without the chains.
