Wow! What can I say?! Shell & Dan’s wedding at Leaf on Bold Street in Liverpool was SO much fun!
This travel-loving couple originally planned to get married in Hawaii, unfortunately the events of 2020 got in the way, so after a small lockdown wedding, they decided to get their friends & family together to have a bash in Liverpool instead.
They chose to have a laid back, non-traditional wedding. Shell loves Disney, and Lil0 & Stitch in particular, and even walked down the aisle wearing her Stitch backpack. Dan wore an authentic shirt from Hawaiian shirt shop.
Dan’s Dad conducted their ceremony, incorporating some Hawaiian traditions. He even surprised the couple by stripping off his traditional suit at the beginning of the ceremony, as he was wearing some more fitting attire underneath, it was a really funny start.
Instead of the usual wedding presents, the couple asked their guests to take part in a Taskmaster style challenge, and the guests were tasked with bringing something blue to the wedding for their gift table. The guest who brought the most interesting thing was rewarded with a trophy.Wow their guests were imaginative! Everything from kids games, to bath mats to blue sweeties… the winner was a guest who bought a donkey adoption on their behalf, called Blue! NB. The donkey wasn’t invited to the wedding but I get the feeling if he was, he would have joined in the party for sure!
Another important thing to Shell & Dan was to pop next door to their favourite restaurant, Mowgli for a cheeky chat bomb….We also snuck out for a few couples photographs in a VERY busy Liverpool.
The amazing flowers were actually made from paper! By the very talented Rebecca from Paper Bouquets UK
It was a brilliant celebration from start to finish, and I was so lucky to be part of it!
Here’s some highlights……
Cheers Dan & Shell (Sheldan) and all the best 🙂
