Samantha & Silvia’s Real Wedding

Samantha and Silvia originally married in New Zealand on top of Queenstown Hill the previous year, but renewed their civil partnership in Norfolk in front of 53 guests. They were joined by 140 for the evening reception and plan to celebrate again in Silvia’s native Brazil during 2013.


The Bridal Party

Silvia and Samantha had three bridesmaids at the renewal of their civil partnership. Samantha’s sister Nicola was a bridesmaid, as were Camilla and Ellie, a couple they became friends with whilst in New Zealand. All the bridesmaids wore long, pale pink dresses and Samantha and Silvia presented them with silver heart necklaces and earrings to wear.


They all chose the dresses together so it was a mutual decision everyone was happy with, and the bridesmaids were able to opt for styles that suited them and they felt comfortable in.

Samantha’s nephews were also involved in the wedding party, and looked handsome in soft pink shirts and ties.
