We’re getting Monday off to an incredibly pretty start with this stunning Cheshire real wedding.
As huge fans of pastels so we’re totally in love with all the sweet & sugary tones incorporated into the décor, blooms and attire.
The bride and groom certainly steal the show (as they should!) with Jonathan opting for an alternative light blue suit and peach tie, while Nicola looks every inch the model bride in a fitted fishtail gown #hot!

nicola says: We got engaged at home in June 2014. The proposal came just before we were leaving for the airport to go on holiday to Egypt.
We set the date for 15th August 2015 as it would fall in the school holidays. We were also hoping that we would be in with a chance of sunshine at that time of year and we were keen to go on honeymoon in September.
Our venue was The Bowdon Rooms in Cheshire. We really liked the style, size and location of the building. The wedding planner there was also amazing from start to finish.
We chose a vintage theme for the wedding in line with the stunning venue and incorporated lots of flowers into the décor. Our colour scheme was pastels of peach, mint, powder blue and blush pink, which again went nice with the venue and also suited the time of year.

This afternoon’s real wedding is a true fairy tale romance, with the bride and groom basing their celebrations on the well-known love story of Cinderella, which initially brought them together.
We love that bride Jessica Jayne embraced being a princess for the day by wearing a stunning ball gown style dress, travelling by horse and cart and celebrating in a grand hall along with her new hubby!
Judging on the images below, these two are destined to live happily ever after…

jessica jayne says: We got engaged on 15th November 2014. Andrew had apparently decided that he would ask my father’s permission before asking me and I don’t know whether he said something that made him think he already asked me, but as soon as I saw my dad he said congratulations and spilled the beans!
I was over the moon! We had planned to spend the day Christmas shopping so on our way out Andrew had placed a scroll on the passenger seat of his car, he told me to read it out loud and as I got to the end (through tears) Andrew was there on one knee to ask me to marry him. We cancelled Christmas shopping and celebrated the whole day, and as they say, the rest is history. It just goes to show that even if not everything goes to plan it can still be romantic and maybe even more memorable!
Our wedding was on 10th October 2015. We both love autumn with all the beautiful colours and my brother had got married in October 2014, which gave the month more meaning. As it turned out our wedding day was a beautifully sunny, it seems that October nowadays is an Indian summer!
We got married at Our Lady and the Apostles RC church, in Shaw Heath, Stockport. It was very special to me and my parents as they had got married there 31 years ago. My dad was so emotional before we walked down the very same aisle he had walked my mother down, we both had tears in our eyes and had to catch our breath when the organist started to play the wedding march. Andrew and I both wanted a traditional church ceremony and because it was so personal it made it extra special.
For the reception we chose Capesthorne Hall. We both fell in love with the venue at first sight, the entrance to the grounds alone is just magnificent. It is a truly stunning venue!

With all the chocolate we’ve consumed over the weekend we’re all Easter-ed out and so are turning our thoughts to other bank holiday celebrations today, as we relive the wonderful Christmas wedding of Jo and David.
Following a festive engagement, today’s bride and groom decided December would be the perfect month in which to take their vows too. As a nod to the season, their romantic big day featured twinkling fairy lights, glittering baubles and shiny accessories, resulting in some super sparkly celebrations.
In case you’ve not heard, we will be hosting one of our fabulous Luxury Wedding Exhibitions at The Bowdon Rooms on Sunday 17th April, giving you the opportunity to see the fabulous venue for yourselves.

jo says: David proposed on Christmas morning 2014, it was a complete surprise. I had to follow clues around the house which led to different presents (including a jigsaw of the world and a Manchester City gnome!) and further clues until I found my engagement ring under the tree.
Our wedding was on 27th December 2015. It was 12 months following our engagement and we wanted a Christmas/winter wedding, so the date was perfect!
We were married at St Vincent’s RC Church in Altrincham. The wedding breakfast and reception was then held at The Bowdon Rooms. It was the only venue we looked at, and loved how it was one big room with a stage for the band. Also, the room could be decorated to suit whatever style we wanted.
When it came to the theme we were both very easy going – we just wanted a Christmas wedding and for the venue to be decorated for that time of year. To fit the season we chose a décor colour scheme of red and gold.
