Cornish Themed Wedding of Laura and Andy at Marco’s Hoylake
..of course there had to be ducks…..but let’s begin several years ago when Laura and Andy were toddlers…
Laura and Andy have kindly guest written this blog for us…thank you, its refreshing to have a personal touch.
Andy: My aunt is Laura’s god mother so as toddlers we mixed at various birthday parties and it was decided in the late 80s that we (my Mum, Dad sister and I, Laura’s Mum, Dad brother and her and my aunt uncle (my mums sister / brother in law and Laura’s mum n dads friends) and cousin) would all holiday in Cornwall. I think we did this two consecutive years and then things slowly drifted apart however myself and my family have always had holidays in Cornwall since. It wasn’t until late 2012 early 2013 my parents reconnected with Laura’s mum and dad and then through the joys of Facebook I got talking to Laura again. The rest on that score is history as they say lol (we have had two Cornwall holidays in 2 and a half years though haha).
We got engaged in Bruges next to lovers lake in December 2014 and the parents gate crashed that one as well but it worked out nicely.
As for wedding we had planned I don’t think we really knew, all we knew is we didn’t want a church so we had a look around and Holiday Inn, Marco’s New York Italain Hoylake ticked the boxes. As for suppliers majority of flowers came from the excellent Cornish sells everything shop that is Trago Mills and where customised by my mum. Laura’s dress was from wed2be. Bridesmaids dresses from bridal secrets and butterflies in Ellesmere Port, table centres made by my mum (recurring trend that isn’t Cornwall haha) the ducks however did come from Cornwall, we had seen them on holiday last year and my sister sneakily picked some up. Hair and make up Sue Hhazlehurst shimmer shine and Claire kendrick and obviously the worlds best photographers.
So this lovely couple really had known each other since toddlers and holidayed together, not a straight path to this day, but from their obvious joy and happiness you can see they were meant to be! It was a special day with their families. There were giggles in the ceremony as Laura was pre-empting the vows, the childhood stories, popping up in the speeches, with pictures of course, a trip to the beach at Red Rocks – thank you for braving the wind guys. We got some golden light shots before the evening started and Andy was captured air guitaring during the dancing.
A personal and memorable day for Laura and Andy’s wedding at Marco’s New York Itailan. We are so happy this lovely appreciative couple had a fantastic day and we will continue to follow their story as we keep in touch xxE njoy your honeymoon guys – so fitting that a aport of call will be Bruges.
We asked their favourite moments: “All of it? Haha different bits for different reasons. Laura says walking down the aisle but can’t choose, Red Rocks was an excellent escape for 20 minutes. Seeing people we hadn’t seen in a while and the laughs had. I suppose my favourite moment was when I could call the girl of my dreams my wife ” (brownie points Andy!)
Having an “escape” on a wedding day is a great idea just to be with each other, so much time can be spent with family members and friends and general busyness of the day which goes at lightning speed., so having that time just to connect with each is so important and something we always try to factor in on a wedding day.
Just a few pic highlights above ..but please enjoy this little slideshow video of the day
