74 wedding guests were invited to the wedding ceremony and breakfast, and a further 75 friends were invited to celebrate during the evening. The wedding reception was decorated with ivory linen with aubergine chair ties and napkin ribbons to match the dresses and ties. Pearls and diamantes were also added to the reception tables for extra detail.
As wedding favours, Laura and Stuart bought the men lottery scratch cards, but the women received ‘Pearl of Wisdom’ charity pin badges to raise awareness of cervical cancer. They were attached to an information card and placed in white organza bags. Laura supports a number of cancer charities and raising awareness is something that she feels strongly about. Seeing as pearls were quite a strong feature during the day, Laura thought that supporting the ‘Pearls of Wisdom’ charity would be the most appropriate.
