Katie & Robert’s Real Wedding

Robert and Katie met in 1997 when the pair started secondary school together. Fast forward a few years and the friendship developed into a six year relationship, which led to a romantic Christmas day proposal. The couple had a ten month engagement before tying the knot at Northbrook Park in Surrey.


The Floral Cake

Katie fell in love with a Peggy Porschen wedding cake, but sadly it was too expensive, coming in at over £1,000! So the clever bride decided to make a replica of the cake she loved. The tiers were made from polystyrene, which she iced and decorated with the help of her nan. The finished product looked amazing and it fooled all of her guests! They topped the cake with roses from her grandparents’ garden, and as a rose had flowered from her mother’s favourite bush, that took pride of place on top.


The newlyweds shared their first dance to ‘So In Love With You’ by Al Green, before the party started with a DJ and sparklers.

After the wedding, Katie and Robert jetted off to Puerto Morelos in Mexico with British Airways for a luxury honeymoon to enjoy quality time together as man and wife.
