Ringing the bell at the Glass Pavilion as newly-weds! Plus, quirky shots like these showed off the couple’s fun personalities.

A simple bouquet of beautiful matthiola flowers.

“We had a sweet and elegant fairy-tale celebration – all pink and white with icons and display pictures of Cinderella and Prince Charming, as well as miniature horse carriages on the photo display and dessert tables.

The bride looked stunning in a romantic ballgown with a lace bodice and tulle skirt from White by Vera Wang for day, and an elegant Tiffany-blue embellished creation from Dang Bridal for the dinner.

There were lots for guests to admire and indulge in.

The occasion was romantic and whimsical, thanks to the theme. Everyone enjoyed the good food and love songs from the live band. Some even dedicated songs to us.

The exchanging of our vows was the most memorable moment for me as we’d written them ourselves. I was so touched when Gary promised to love me wholeheartedly and to protect me with the best of his abilities.

Despite the bad weather, we were happy and satisfied that our wedding went well. I felt like I was the luckiest woman in the world to be married to Gary!

My tip: I would advise brides to plan ahead and work within their budgets. Do a price and quality comparison with different vendors and suppliers.”
