Blush pink meets silver sparkle for a touch of glamorous elegance.
Pontefract couple Adam and Kimberley Crossley celebrated their recent wedding with not one, but two, honeymoons.
The couple, who married on May 20 this year at The Holiday Inn, Garforth near Leeds, enjoyed a week on their own on the Greek island of Crete followed by a weekend in the Lake District with their two children.
Their trips away provided the perfect ending to a ‘wonderful wedding’ when everything went like clockwork to create an amazing day for both the happy couple and their guests. Despite the weather turning to rain when it was time for the photographs, nothing could dampen the spirits of the wedding party and their photographer captured some great memories of the day.
Adam, who works as a claims handler, and Kimberley, a quality assurance co-ordinator, met over three years ago. Now they are happily settled in their marital home in Pontefract with their two children.
When Adam proposed in November 2015, the couple gave themselves 18 months to organise their wedding – although Kimberley found her perfect wedding dress straight away, spotting it during an early bridal shopping trip.
“My dress was hung up in my grandma’s wardrobe for 17 months. I definitely chose it in good time,’’ Kimberley said.
Her dress certainly took centre stage at the wedding ceremony which was witnessed by 70 guests and followed by a traditional three-course wedding breakfast, all held at The Holiday Inn. One of the most poignant moments of the service was when 12-year-old son Ethan did a reading.
The bride’s ivory dress featured a sweetheart neckline, lace underlay across the shoulders, a train and was decorated with sequins and lace. Kimberley also wore a veil and carried a bouquet of pink hydrangeas and roses.
She was attended by three bridesmaids who wore dark rose pink dresses and carried bouquets of white hydrangeas. Two flower girls wore pale blush pink dresses and carried white roses and fairy wands.
The couple’s colour theme of pink and silver was continued at the reception where a fabulous four-tier wedding cake styled in ivory and silver and decorated with white hydrangeas and edible sequins was certainly a talking point.
Kimberley said: “We found many of our suppliers via the I Do wedding shows although the cake was provided by my auntie and it was just beautiful.”
“Although we had 18 months to plan, it flew by and there was always something to organise. I arranged and designed our table decor with some beautiful additions by Sasha (Fleur Chappelle) and we created a fun children’s table that went down a storm with little ones.”
“Our guests particularly enjoyed the photo booth which was the first thing we booked for the wedding. Absolutely everyone loved and had a go, even the hotel staff!”
In the evening the wedding party was joined by more guests for a disco and buffet supper.
“The whole day was just wonderful and everything went to plan. All our guests had a great time and all said how much they had enjoyed themselves. The hotel staff were fabulous and couldn’t do enough for us. We would like to thank everyone involved in our special day.’’
