Hight Quality Replica shoes: Pretty Candy Pink Pastels Wedding

Romantic Candy Pink Pastels Wedding http://kerryannduffy.com/

Pretty pretty pretty all the way this morning, with this delightful pink Summer wedding day.

Pastels was the theme and it was executed to perfection. Think seasonal bright blooms, chic bridesmaids in tulle skirts and birdcage centrepieces. They really wanted their loved ones to enjoy themselves and came up with some really great games to entertain during the meal.

WWW readers Lauren and Gary tied the knot on the 7th August 2015 at The George in Rye in East Sussex. Rye is the loveliest market town and created the atmosphere that Lauren and Gary dreamed of (I’d really recommend a visit!). In fact they partied with their guests until 4am, how fun?

Lauren wore the amazing Vaudeville by Ian Stuart, what a statement gown. Wow. Meanwhile the gents looked amazing in their Jack Bunneys attire, very dapper.

Thanks so much to Kerry Ann Duffy for sharing these fresh and happy shots.

THE PROPOSAL | Gary proposed on a beach named Portrush in Northern Ireland on the 20th July 2013. Gary took Lauren to Northern Ireland for her 26th Birthday as her family are all from this area and she spent a lot of time there when she was younger.

Gary actually flew out to Ireland in secret the week prior to find see the engagement ring he had found. This meant a lot to Lauren as Gary is actually terrified of flying and has never flown on his own before. He had told Lauren he was going to Sheffield for work, which wasn’t unusual.

THE VISION | We only had one rule we wanted to stick to with our wedding and that’s that we didn’t want it “regimented.” We just wanted it to be a really fun atmosphere for all the guests involved. That’s what lead us to The George in Rye – although it was incredibly beautiful to us as a venue, it was also on a high street and had a full bar/pub atmosphere. This is where it all began for us. We had visions of the whole wedding party carrying on the celebrations in the 24 hour hotel bar into the early hours – which came true. Gary loves the classic Gentleman’s look but we didn’t want the traditional Morning suits. We found a tailor named Jack Bunneys that provided Gary and the Groomsmen beautiful suits. We wanted everything else to follow pastels from the bridesmaids to the flowers and decorations.

THE PLANNING PROCESS | I wouldn’t say there was a particular process we followed. I think once we found the venue everything else started falling into place. I would say we looked at all the essentials first – venue, photos and flowers.

THE VENUE | St Marys Church Rye and The George in Rye.

THE DRESS & ACCESSORIES | My dress was directly from Ian Stuart’s Blewcoat store in London. It was named a Vaudeville and I fell in love with it the moment I saw it.

I wore classic Jimmy Choo court bridal shoes.

In terms of accessories I kept it rather simple as had a lot going on with my dress. I wore simple diamond earrings and a matching bracelet.

My hairpiece was from ASOS.

FINDING THE DRESS | I struggled for a long time to find the right dress. I went to Pantiles Bride in Tunbridge Wells which is where I first discovered the Ian Stuart collection. I fell in love with all the styles and particularly liked a dress named the Coco Rico – however, it still wasn’t quite the one. I went home and looked through the Ian Stuart website and found the Vaudeville. I knew from the moment I saw it online that’s what I wanted. Then I needed to find it. I contacted Ian Stuart’s blewcoat store in London and they told me they would get the dress brought in for me to try. The employees at the store were the most incredible ladies I had met. Full of incredible knowledge and so helpful. The second I tried it on I knew this was the dress I wanted. I wanted something slightly different but nothing too crazy and this was perfect for what I was looking for.

GROOM’S ATTIRE | We found Jack Bunneys online and loved their different styles of groom suits. We didn’t want the traditional morning suits. We felt their style and colours perfectly matched the ideas we had for the wedding overall. They had a bespoke/hire service which allowed us to have Gary’s suit completely tailor made and rent the groomsmen suits.

We decided that Gary would have a grey Superfine Pure Wool Flannel in a Prince of Wales Check – Blue Overcheck and the ushers would have Navy suits with matching waistcoat to Gary. This meant that Gary could stand out as the groom but still be matching his groomsmen. We also added a pocket watch and Jack Bunney stag boutonnières to each of the groomsmen ties.

We ordered all shirts from Charles Tyrwhitt with each of their initials sown into the cuffs – mainly so we could tell which shirt was which! Gary wore a blue CT shirt with a pink tie and pocket hanky. He also wore a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Boutonnière instead of the stag. This was only because we have a dog of this breed named George who we wanted to be a part of the day in some way. Gary wore burgundy Barker brogues.

THE READINGS & MUSIC | We held our ceremony at St Marys Church in Rye. Our chosen reading was Solomon 2.10-13; 8.6,7. We didn’t have any hymns during the ceremony but did have a lot of music playing – I have detailed all below.

Bride Entrance: Christina Perri – A Thousand Years

During Ceremony: Eva Cassidy – Time after Time

Acoustic Truth – Cant Help Falling in Love   – was just a cover on YouTube

During the register signing: Birdy – Wings (acoustic)

Mairi Campbell – Auld Lang Syne

Kings of Leon – Use Somebody

Exit of Bride & Groom

Coldplay – Sky Full of Stars. We had this as our last song because we wanted to “dance” our way out the aisle.

BEAUTIFUL BRIDESMAIDS | I really struggled to find bridesmaids dresses I liked and spent hours on pinterest for ideas. I started to look into the idea of skirts rather than dresses. I found some tulle skirts online and fell in love. However, all my bridesmaids were different heights – a skirt that fit one drowned the other.

I contacted a dress maker that my sister had used for her wedding years before and she designed and made the tulle skirts for me in a pastel pink. I found their tops online from an Australian brand named Forever New and had them delivered. Their shoes were from ASOS.

THE FLOWERS | I am terrible with flowers and honestly don’t have a clue about all the different kinds. We met our florist at a wedding fair held at The George. She was amazing and understood how we wanted everything to look and helped us with the details in terms of the flowers we needed. I requested that the flowers be colourful with different flowers and different pastels. We said we didn’t want it simple, I think we actually said we wanted them to look a bit messy rather than a perfect bouquet.

The bouquet end up being a slightly trailing hand tied bouquet with different pastel shades of pinks and blues with roses, peonies, nigella, trailing clematis and jasmine. We also filled our centrepieces, which were bird cages with the same multi coloured flowers. The Flower House had also provided us the birdcages.

THE CAKE | We decided quite early on that we didn’t want a traditional wedding cake and we are both huge lovers of cheese. So we decided to have a cheese tower for our main wedding cake instead. Decorated with flowers and accompanied by breads and chutneys. The guests loved this as part of the evening food.

YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER | The Bride’s sister (and bridesmaid) had heard of Kerry Ann Duffy via one of her friends. I had looked through her website and the photographs were beautiful and exactly what we were looking for.

Kerry Ann was amazing throughout the whole day and looked after us in so many ways. She had searched out great places to take the photos and lead us the way. Would recommend Kerry Ann to anyone.

THE DETAILS & DÉCOR | The ballroom itself at the George already so many beautiful aspects that there was no need for too much decoration. The room was filled with large chandeliers and painted walls. We added birdcages to the centrepieces to tie in with the birds and branches painted on the walls. We took the flowers from the pew ends we had already used at the church and placed them throughout the main ballroom as well as the second room we had in use at The George which was called the Benson room. We also laid the tables with candles and used wine bottles with the original corks to display the table numbers.

We provided a bag and envelope on each table for the guests. The envelope read please do not read until after the speeches. The envelope basically included the “rules” of the table which we had created ourselves. We wanted all the tables to be loud and having lots of fun so we had basically created a couple of games to get everyone in the party mood. The rules of the table included the rules to the games –

The bag included, random trivial pursuit cards, a captain armband – the table all had to select a “captain” for one of the games toward the end of the wedding breakfast. The captain had to keep the armband on at all times. Disposable cameras, funny face masks/mats and advice for the bride and groom sheets.

The first game was that every table had to give their own table a name and write it next the number. The bride and groom would select the winning table and give them a bottle of champagne.

The second game was where each captain had to represent their table in a knock out round of trivial pursuit which was ran by the best man. If they got the question wrong the table would be knocked out, if they got it right they could pick another table to knock out. The winner would get another bottle of champagne

We purchased a vintage mirror online and wrote the table plan on this with a glass pen. It meant we could change it regularly without having to order anything new. We used luggage tags for the place names which we hung off the back of the chairs. We purchased a vintage suitcase for our cards which tied in with the luggage tags. We added vintage bunting to the suitcase also we had a large Mr and Mrs Light sign at the back of the Benson room provided by a small company named De-lights.

We created our own wishing trees for the guests to sign their messages and hang on the wishing tree. Gary made these by collecting branches whilst walking our dog George. We purchased pots from Homebase and secured them in the pot. Decorated the pots with stones and some of the confetti. We surround the wishing trees with photographs of the bride and groom in different frames.

THE HONEYMOON | We tried to combine city and relax in our honeymoon. So we went to Rome for 3 days and then flew onto Santorini for a week. A perfect combo of the two ready to relax after touring Rome.

MEMORABLE MOMENTS | We absolutely loved every part of our wedding day. It was everything we hoped it would be and all of our guests enjoyed themselves throughout the day.

Some of our memorable moments were the quiz and the wedding breakfast. Everyone cheering and shouting to win the games.

Lauren was so touched by they way Gary had proposed that she had spent the entire engagement saving in secret to get him his dream watch for the wedding day. Gary received a vintage 1960s Omega, which Gary was so pleased about.

Being in a hotel we were lucky enough to have the majority of our friends, family and wedding party staying in the same hotel. We basically had a wedding “Afterparty” in the hotel bar and the party didn’t stop until approx. 4am. It was so wonderful being with everyone we loved recalling the whole day.

ADVICE FOR OTHER COUPLES | Table plans can be an absolute nightmare. So my advice would be, don’t stick to having the same amount of people on each table. It is so much easier having friends with friends or family with family and not having to separate others just to fill a table. We had some tables with 9 people on and other tables with 7 people on.

We created a website for all the information the guests needed – this meant that we could save a lot of money in terms of printing all this information on the invites. It also meant people could check their mobile phones on the website throughout the day or the run up to it easily.

We asked for all the RSVPs to be included in the website too. There are so many free versions that it only costs you your time.

Try to relax and think about how you would both like your day to go. Not what others expect it to be.

Pinterest, Amazon and eBay should become your best friends in planning a wedding.
