A surprise honeymoon of a Mediterranean cruise and four days in the Spanish city of Barcelona rounded off a perfect fairytale wedding day for Ossett couple Tom and Kezia Corley.
The holiday, a wedding gift from the bridegroom’s parents, was the icing on the cake of a truly memorable day for the couple, who said their vows in front of all their family and friends in a ceremony at the picturesque St Michael and Our Lady Church in the grounds of Nostell Priory near Wakefield.
Tom and Kezia, who have set up their marital home in Ossett, met through the online social networking website Myspace nine years ago. Tom works as an operations manager in Dewsbury and his wife is a customer services advisor.
For the ceremony, Kezia wore a taupe Ian Stuart designed Thai silk gown with an encrusted bodice and a Cinderella-style hooped skirt with a long train. She carried a bouquet of pink and white roses.
The bride travelled in vintage style to the church in a cream Beauford Tourer.
Her two bridesmaids wore pale pink dresses and carried baskets of roses. The flower girl wore a matching dress to the bride.
Kezia said: “Although everything went to plan, I was 20 minutes late for the ceremony. Time just ran away with us and I was ‘fashionably late’.
Following the service, their 65 daytime guests joined the bride and groom at 315 Bar & Restaurant at Lepton, near Huddersfield, where they all enjoyed a delicious three-course wedding breakfast while looking out at the fabulous Yorkshire views for which the restaurant is renowned.
A string quartet was also on hand to entertain guests at the church.
In the evening, the wedding celebrations continued with a hog roast for all the guests.
Kezia said: “It was a great day but it all went past so quickly. Everything was so perfect and we even had a surprise video speech from me which included an emotional piece on my dad who passed away in 2013. Luckily we had a fine day with no rain but it was quite chilly.
The day itself was as perfect as a fairytale with the addition of quite a few surprises. It was a wonderful celebration of our love which included all our family and friends.’’
The overall colour theme for the wedding day was blush pink and gold which continued through to the reception venue and for the three-tier wedding cake which was decorated with pink flowers and ribbon.
Tom and Kezia enjoyed a wonderful honeymoon and are now settled into married life.
