Hello there, I hope this post finds you happy, healthy and ready for some serious loveliness!

If you missed Part 1 of Kate and Gray’s stunning wedding, it’d be a crime not to go and take a peek. The photos are quite possibly the best ceremony shots ever ~ Kate was such an expressive, happy and excited bride!

Here’s some lovely touches to look out for in Part 2:

~ Kate’s cute, sparkly cardigan {an addition to her fabulous vintage inspired, fashionista ensemble}

~ Charming group shots featuring bridesmaids in black

~ All things black and white as table numbers

~ A cupcake tower of mini grooms and brides

~ A fun game of Mr & Mrs during dinner

~ Stephanie Oakes gorgeous photography

The Photographer We chose Stephanie Oakes to be our photographer and she was incredible – I am overjoyed with our photos, Steph is definitely going to be a star of the future, we were so lucky to get her!!  She has the most stunning natural eye and captures peoples’ personalities in her work.  Also some of the scenic shots are just to die for – she was the icing on our cake!!

The Decor and Details All black and white  – down to crockery and tablecloths, the favours were vintage glass Christmas tree baubles. Our cake consisted of black and white individual bride and groom cupcakes – with top hats and bow ties and veils and pearls!  They were made by the fabulously namedCamp Cupcake shop in Liverpool.

The Wedding Music We went for current music  – Sigur Ros – Hoppipolla for the entrance of the bride, All I want for Christmas – Mariah Carey, Friday I’m in love – The Cure, Elbow – One Day Like This  during the ceremony and our first dance was Adele – Make you feel my Love. We had a live music set by a band who play in Liverpool’s Sir Thomas Hotel – Unplugged and after that we had a DJ from Dave Dee Discos.

Favourite Moment Seeing the look on Gray’s face as I came in to the chapel!  It was a magical moment and I loved every second.

Advice For Other Brides Be true to yourself – go for what you really want and don’t try to please everyone.  Remember to keep coming back together and spending as much time together as a couple on that day.  Try to enjoy the build up as much as you can – as soon as the day is over you will want to relive it over and over again!

Congratulations to Kate and Gray, I hope you are both always as happy as you were on your wedding day!
