Dave anD Tim Singapore and pink ties from new York. Tim put all the hard work into the outfits and they really did show the effort he had gone to – right down to the Ralph Lauren socks all in different colours to create the rainbow flag. With the number of guests who accepted our invitation, we ended up having to have a standing ceremony with just one row of chairs for immediate family. This worked really well as it felt very inclusive. We booked a string quartet to play before the ceremony as our guests sipped champagne, and our chosen music as we walked into the room was Somewhere over the rainbow. it was magical; not a dry eye in the room. We walked down the aisle together and we had two best men and two ushers to ensure everything went smoothly. i was a bag of nerves – and suffering from a very bad hangover from the night before with my cousin who had flown in from australia with his partner! – but the registrars made us feel relaxed and there was lots of laughter throughout the ceremony. afterwards there was more champagne and oysters while the string quartet played in the background, and everything felt just amazing. Trinity House looked stunning and Zoe and edgar from the venue had ensured everything was perfect. Louise, natalie and Carly from Louise Perry Weddings also took away the stress so we could really enjoy ourselves. We hired them a few weeks before the wedding, as although we’d organised everything ourselves, we ‘ALL I CAN SAY IS WOW!!! WHAT AN ABSOLUTELY AMAZING DAY. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR INVITING US TO SPEND YOUR SPECIAL DAY WITH YOU, WHAT A HUGE HONOUR!!’ pink weddings magazine » 73
