Claire & Richard’s Palm House Wedding

CLAIRE & RICHARD’S PALM HOUSE WEDDING

Claire & Richard’s Palm House Wedding took place on the 13th of August 2016.

It was all very calm and peaceful in Claire’s apartment overlooking Sefton Park. Claire looked  stunning in her wedding gown, even she was taken back by how elegant she looked. Her bridesmaids looked beautiful in a deep shade of blue complete with a delicate lace finish. The silk flowers for the bouquets had been beautifully put together and complimented the dresses perfectly. It was so lovely to be with Claire, the girls, mum and dad that morning.

With the time I set aside before the ceremony, I headed over to find the boys and they all looked very dapper indeed with their very stylish suits.
The couple were married at St Charles & St Thomas More Roman Catholic Church situated on Aigburth road. Built on the site of the less-well known iron church, which was constructed from corrugated iron sheets and painted a nonchalant green. The St Charles & St Thomas More RCC has been beautifully maintained. This is demonstrated by its marrying of marble, sandstone and stourton stone walls which help to create a palette of light making it a joy to work with. The ceremony was very emotional with beautiful readings from close family members.

The day was full of glorious sunshine and the beautiful grade 2 listed Palm House in Liverpool’s Sefton Park made a stunning setting for Claire & Richard’s wedding. The historic Palm House was first opened in 1896, and is home to an exotic collection of plants and palm trees. Claire had taken great care and had paid such attention to detail  along with the venue to ensure it looked just perfect for a summer wedding. The evening got into full swing with a fantastic band and everyone found their party feet and danced the night away.

After Claire and richard’s first dance, I was surprised by the ‘rugby gang’ when they formed a ring around the happy couple and chanted to Sloop John B ……. So hoist up the John B’s sail!

A very beautiful wedding, with a very beautiful couple!
I wish my two friends Claire and Richard every happiness in their marriage.

WHATEVER STAGE OF WEDDING PLANNING YOU’RE AT, GET ORGANISED WITH US TODAY….TIME TO DO THE TIME-WARP! (PART TWO OF TWO)

Three Months Before

  •  Finalize the menu and flowers.
    -You’ll want to wait until now to see what will be available, since food and flowers are affected by season. Of course out-of season food and/or flowers can both be ordered but you will pay a premium for this service.
  • Order favours, if desired.
    -Some safe bets: monogrammed cookies or a treat that represents your city or region. If you’re planning to have welcome baskets for out-of-town guests, plan those now too.
  • Make a list of the people giving toasts.
    -Identify and invite those people would you like to speak at the reception.
  • Finalize the readings.
    -Determine what you would like to have read at the ceremony—and whom you wish to do the readings.
  • Purchase your undergarments.
    -And schedule your second fitting. No time like the present.
  • Finalize the order of the ceremony and the reception.
    -By staying organised it will be less likely for problems to occur on your big day.
  • Print menu cards, if you like, as well as programs.
    -No need to go to a printer, if that’s not in your budget: You can easily create these on your computer, or ask a close friend to do this as a favour.
  • Purchase the rings.
    -This will give you time for resizing and engraving, remember some resizes can take up to 6 weeks.
  • Send your event schedule to the vendors.
    -Giving them a first draft now allows ample time for tweaks and feedback. Not only does this help proceedings it will create the impression of a well organised event planner.
