Gill and Chris- Their wedding success story!

Gill and Chris did it! They married on the 3rd October 2020.

They had so many ups and downs in their wedding planning process that their wedding day was gladly welcomed when it was allowed to go ahead. They had it tough; lockdowns, changes of venues, and having to decrease their guest list from 30 to 15 the week of their wedding.

I loved these two when we first met! Well actually I met Chris first with his mum and mother in law to be at A Wedding Less Ordinary as Gill was away working so Chris was told to go and find suppliers! When I returned that night and drafted emails to all the couples I met, these stuck in my mind as they were so lovely. I then met Gill when she came for her flowers consultation. From the beginning, Gill had an idea of what she wanted but we planned the flowers together based on the ideas of flowers I suggested. I was so pleased a protea was to be included!

Due to the restrictions on weddings in October 2020 Gill and Chris had 15 guests. Small and intimate. Their venue was The Secret Tower in Newcastle, and WOW, honestly its beautiful!!! I thought it suited the small and intimate wedding perfectly. The views over the Tyne are amazing and the windows are surely to be talked about by all guests.

The amazingly brilliant photographer Ste at 'Fallen Star Photography' took some fantastic shots of those windows, views and the beautiful couple! His photography style is stunning and I'm so excited to be sharing these pictures with you of Gill and Chris's big day.

Gill really is a beautiful person inside and out. When I delivered the bouquets to Gill on the morning of the wedding at The Hilton in Gateshead I was excited to see her and was over the moon she loved them!

Delivering the bouquets is always one of my favourite moments as a florist. Although we were all wearing masks and at that time couldn't share our good luck gesture with a hug, there was smiles all round and the room was buzzing with hair and make up in full flow.
