Hello folks here is a very apt Wedding for you guys to peruse.
Jenny and Matt married on New Years Eve 2006 at Northcote House the lovely Jennie Middlemiss was there to photograph it all. Having known each other since they were teenagers Jenny and Matt got together at university thanks to a mutual friend.
How did the proposal go?
A nervous Matt drove us to the slopes in Italy planning to propose at the top of a mountain, the 'moment' took a long time to come as I am not the best skier and spent a lot of time moaning that I wasn't very good. He found the perfect place amongst the trees on a very easy and quiet run. I skied around the corner to find Matt on one knee!! I was so excited and skied to the bottom without my glove on so I could see the ring!!
What was your favourite part of the Big Day?
Partying with all our friends and family. Everyone looked so brilliant, we had a dress code, black tie for the boys and 'dress up and sparkle' for the ladies. It was so lovely to see everyone all dressed up and looking extra glam.
Jenny, did you have a favourite item from the day?
The dress! A sparkly Jenny Packham number.
What did family and friends say was their favourite thing of the day?
The party. Being NYE meant everyone was really 'up for a good time'. And everyone certainly did. We had a count down at midnight with Big Ben chimes, huge white confetti bombs were thrown from the balcony at the strike of midnight and then did the conga!! We had a grand piano full with glasses of champagne - perfect!
What were you most excited and nervous about in the lead up?
For me I was nervous about the ceremony, and I was anxious that everyone was going to have a good time. I felt extra pressure as it was NYE. Matt was nervous about his speech. I was most excited about marrying Matt and he was excited about seeing me walk towards him. We had a couple of surprises that we were excited about. As everyone left the wedding breakfast and into the main room 'Frank Sinatra' was singing on the stairs! I was excited to see peoples reactions! We also created a video of our guests miming lines to 'A perfect day'. It worked really well and is still hilarious to watch back.
Are there any funny stories from the day?
My mum got a flat tyre on the way to the venue and changed the tyre with my little sister on the side of the motorway - with rollers in her hair!! Also, the ceremony was about 30 mins late as the registrar was witness to a car accident and was postponed. We all got there in the end!
Have you got any hints, tips or advice for brides to be, Jenny?
Keep smiling, don't stress on the day, there's not much you can do by that point!
Now, here's to the lovely pics!
