OH GOSH WHAT CAN I SAY WHERE IS THE TIME GOING! I HAVEN'T BEEN HERE FOR AGES! HAVING SMALL CHILDREN AND WORKING OH AND PLANNING A WEDDING IS QUITE A CHALLENGE.
ANY WAY MY STORY SO FAR IS THAT AFTER BOOKING OUR LOCAL CHURCH OVER A YEAR AGO, WE HAVE NOW BEEN TOLD THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO WED THERE! IT SEEMS THEY WERE WAITING FOR FUNDING TO CARRY ON WITH WORKS WHICH NOW THEY HAVE RECEIVED AND HAS DELAYED THE SCHEDULE AND THE CHURCH WILL NOT BE READY FOR US TO WED!! I HAVE BEEN VERY UPSET AS THE CHURCH IS IN THE VILLAGE WE LIVE IN AND HAS FAMILY TIES. WE HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT WE CAN WED IN THE OTHER PARISH CHURCH WHICH IS A FEW MILES DOWN THE ROAD, WHICH AGAIN IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL CHURCH WHICH I AM GRATEFUL FOR BUT WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR MIND SET AND HAVE GIVEN OUT SAVE THE DATE CARDS OUT WITH THE ORIGINAL CHURCH ON IS QUITE ANNOYING! MMM
WE HAVE NOW SORTED THE SUITS FOR MY MAN AND HIS FELLOW MEN WHICH ARE STUNNING! WE NOW HAVE TO GO BACK FOR FITTING BEFORE CHRISTMAS.
I AM GOING THE THE FLORIST AND THE HOTEL THIS WEEK TO SORT OUT OUR MENUS LIGHTING ETC.
I WILL BE POSTING SOME MORE PHOTOS SOON! BUT I'M STILL ON THE LOOK OUT FOR MY SHOES!!!! AS MY THEME IS PURPLE I WANT PURPLE SHOES BUT MY HEEL CANNOT BE HIGHER THAN 3 HALF INCHES.
I have just chosen my dress! and I'm really excited now, to excited considering I have 7 months etc to go! ha
The owner has given me discount off the dress too which was amazing as he wants me to model for him in his wedding shows! Huw Ress is well known where I live as he is our local welsh fashion designer with a television programme. He is such a lovely man.
This the the 'Huw Rees boutique'
Huw Rees has been in the public eye for more than 18 years, appearing weekly on S4C as the face of fashion here in Wales and recognized throughout Wales as Huw Fash.
His career started in Carmarthen at the highly respected Dyfed College of Art. A fashion degree in London quickly followed and this opened the door to the Royal College of Art.
Collections followed for Max Mara in Italy, Harvey Nichols in London and the well known high street brand Warehouse.
“This expertise I have drawn upon whilst dressing household names such as Shirley Bassey, Charlotte Church, Katherine Jenkins, Gavin Henson, Ryan Giggs and many more.”
They fitted me all up today and will ring at around Christmas time when the dress is made.
I will try and post some pictures of the dress if I can soon. I have lots more to put on my pages but there is just not enough hours in the day! I'm sure it will all come together in time.
We are getting married at our local church, photo's to be taken at our beach just down the road, we live in a harbour village and have some beautiful spots locally.
Our reception will be at the Stradey Park Hotel
Stradey Park Hotel has been awarded 'The best Wedding venue' in our region by the Wedding TV channel if you missed us on the programme you can still watch it by clicking here
We have around 87 guest in the day totaling approx 150 at night.
We will be having crystal chandeliers on the tables with garlands of flowers around the room, I'm not a massive fan of huge bouquets of flowers. Its going to be a very romantic room with lots of candles and crystals and cherub candle holders.
My table centres (similar)
Colours will be vintage purples, lilac, mauve's with creams
I adore cherubs and i'm having a fantastic cake made similar to this
We will be donating money to 'Breast Cancer' Charity instead of giving wedding favours.
My Name is Sharon and i live in South Wales UK. I work in a office at a local joinery firm. My Partner and i Gavin have two children 7 and 2 and are very excited about getting married next year! He is an engineer and is a site manager on a power station.
We met out one evening when with friends, we had been living in the same town, but our paths had never crossed, I'm so glad they did that night as we have a fantastic relationship and are very much in love! Even though the kids are killing us! ha
We got engaged October 1st 2009. It was something that we had discussed for a while, and went out looking for rings, but even though i knew we were getting engaged he still managed to ring my dad and ask for permission and get down on one knee under the stars and asked me to marry him! He is such a gorgeous man, i broke my heart.
We are getting married on the 15th April 2011.
