Charlotte and Ben’s first attempt at planning their wedding ended up being an exercise in pleasing other people, which didn’t work out as you can’t ever keep everyone happy. Sadly, they decided to cancel the wedding. However, not to be defeated, they gave it a second bash, and this time jetted off to Las Vegas with their closest family. The bride said, “It was a tough call, but ultimately the right decision. And this time around, we just did whatever we wanted. No overthinking or worrying about other people’s opinions. Our true inspiration was to get away from the stress of reality! Where better than Las Vegas!” Add in an Elvis officiant in a gold jacket, and I say where better indeed!?
Their intimate ceremony was at the Neon Museum’s Boneyard: Where Las Vegas’s historical neon signs are rescued and restored. Charlotte said, “It was just a small group – my mum, her partner, our two children and us. We were given the main boneyard in the Neon Museum because the North Gallery, which is the usual wedding venue, was under renovation and the work had overrun. Worked out well, as I loved the Moulin Rouge converted ‘In Love’ sign. It was the perfect backdrop for our ceremony.”
