Andrew and Yvette decided to have a religious ceremony at their local church in Morland. After the sad death of Yvette’s brother in 2003, he was laid to rest in that church, so the couple felt that their ceremony would be a fitting tribute to him.
Yvette arrived to the ceremony in true vintage style in a 1949 classic car hired from Cars of Distinction. She was accompanied by her dad who had the proud honour of walking her down the aisle.
Andrew and Yvette wanted their ceremony to be filled with a romantic medley of classical music, so Yvette walked down the aisle with her dad to the traditional ‘Canon in D’ by Pachelbel – made even more special as it was performed by live musicians.
The ceremony was an incredibly emotional moment for not just the couple, but for all their friends and family too.
Yvette felt overcome with emotion when she reached her soulmate at the end of the aisle and also whilst reading her vows – in particular the part ‘in sickness and in health’, as the pair could really relate to this after everything that they had been through.
Luckily Yvette foresaw that the ceremony wouldn’t be leaving a dry eye in the house, so she thoughtfully put together packs of tissues for each lady and included a pretty floral Kath Kidston tissue! The labels read: ‘For your tears of happiness’.
When the happy couple were announced as husband and wife they were over the moon with joy! Andrew had chosen a sleek and simple palladium wedding band, whilst Yvette picked out a platinum diamond ring.
