I was absolutely thrilled to be part of Nikki & Catherine’s special day in May at Matfen Hall in Northumberland. The couple are huge football fans and chose a black and white colour scheme for their wedding to celebrate their love of Newcastle United.
Nikki’s dress & and the bridesmaid dresses came from Mao Couture Bridal. Donna Ganley from Powder and Pin Ups in Sunderland did the make up for both brides.
The wedding bouquets and centre pieces were from floral expert Jean Hepple. they chose white gerberas to match with their black and white theme.
By Wendy Unique Stationery created the table plan, names and menus, in a Gatsby style. The tables were name after the ladies favourite drinking places!
Catherine & Nikki had a lovely tiered cheese cake from Churchmouse Cheeses, topped with their homemade fabulous wooden peg doll toppers, even featuring their cats.
Both Dads made lovely speeches, and their maid of honour, Roisin made a fabulous speech featuring props, lots of funny moments and even a message from Alan Robson from Metro Radio!
Catherine wrote a poem for Nikki which she read out. All the speeches were fab, funny and moving!
After the meal we popped outside for some photographs in the beautiful evening light.
Instead of a traditional first dance, Nikki & Catherine chose ‘500 miles’ to dance to with all of their family and friends joining in and freestyling.
