Nicola & Graeme’s Real Wedding

Nicola and Graeme finally tied the knot after a 14 year relationship and 2 adorable children, Callum and Mikey. They spent their time choosing the perfect venue, Clearwell Castle, and invited 90 guests to join them in the day and a further 50 friends to celebrate with them during the evening.  Nicola used the website throughout her wedding planning for inspiration and support.


Cadbury Purple Bridesmaids

Nicola had 5 bridesmaids to support her on the big day.  Her sister was chosen as her Maid of Honour and the other 4 bridesmaids were best friends of the bride.  Together they searched high and low on the high street for something perfect to wear, and eventually came across pretty Cadbury purple twisted bandeau style dresses from Debenhams.


The bridesmaids teamed their dresses up with fuchsia pink peep-toe shoes from monsoon and bespoke jewellery that had been made by a friend of Nicola. Nicola’s niece was the flower girl and wore a white floaty dress, which also came from Debenhams and featured a purple sash to match the older bridesmaids.

All of the bridesmaids, and the bride, carried gorgeous bouquets that had been created by Lavenders Blue in Mitcheldean, not far from Clearwell Castle.  The florist came highly recommended by the venue and was excellent when it came to advising the best flowers to match the over all wedding colour scheme and theme of the day.
