Maddie & Lewis got married at Twixmas – 28th December- in between Christmas & New Year.
Lewis is in the navy and had been away for around eight months prior to the wedding. It was therefore an extra special celebration to have everyone together at last.
My last wedding of 2014, and what a day it was!!
They chose the beautiful Ellingham Hall, near Alnwick in Northumberland as their fabulous wedding venue. Winter weddings here are extra special, with all the Christmas trees and trimmings.
Maddie chose a blue colour scheme to the day with touches of silver and snowflakes. I’m not sure if she had it in mind, but I felt there was a subtle ‘Frozen’ theme to their big day!
For the bride’s something blue, she wore the shoes made famous by Carrie Bradshaw in Sex & The City – Hangisi blue Manolo Blahnik heels. Wowza!
Her dress came from First Glance in Sunderland. Her stunning bouquet featured touches of blue and silver as well and was rather unusual. The bridesmaids had white roses and gypsophila.
It was very emotional when Maddie’s Dad came in to see her dressed up, it was clear they share a close bond and there were a few tears all round.
Their AMAZING four tier wedding cake was made by Dawn from The Master CakeSmith based round the corner in Ellingham. It had touches of sparkle and snowflakes and really tied in with the rest of their wedding.
Maddie surprised Lewis by hiring light up letters from Coco Luminaire . They really made the room!
Guests braved the cold to wave some sparklers around!
What a fantastic way to end 2014, and for Lewis & Maddie to begin 2015 as husband and wife.
Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Nelson and thank you so much for having me as your photographer.
