A Summer-Fun Wedding: Katie & Chris

November 16, 2011

Katie & Chris’ cute Summer-themed wedding had a really ‘fun for all’ vibe – kids and big kids alike! I love their giant cupcake cake (made by a friend), the space hoppers (that I’m sure the adults spent more time on than the children…) and the pops of colour they injected throughout.

“Chris used to be in the army, The Parachute Regiment, and left recently,” Katie explained. “We have been through so much together, including his tour of Afghanistan, so we knew we wanted this wedding to be nothing but fun! I don’t know if our wedding was too different to many other weddings, but that’s because we never compared it to anybody else’s. It was our day, and everything was done how we wanted. One thing I learnt is that everyone has an opinion, and you can’t make them change your ideas.”

Katie wore a dress by Tobi Hannah (who she met at The Designer Vintage Bridal Show in Birmingham) and Vivienne Westwood shoes and jewellery. Her bridesmaid’s wore Vivien of Holloway dresses.

Thank you so much to Katie & Chris for sharing their wedding with us today.
