Geraldine & David
Gerry & David married at St Andrew’s Church, Girton on the 31st of May, 2014 and held their reception in a marquee in the garden of Gerry’s family home.
Having lived and grown up in the village (and met in the local pub Girton!), it meant a lot to us to get married at our village church especially as my parents got married there as well.
My mum’s house is just a 30 second walk to the church so I walked there with my bridesmaids accompanied by my parents.
I wore a beautiful La Sposa off-the-shoulder fishtail gown from Burr Bridal, Cambridge and David wore a herringbone navy blue 3-piece suit.
The ceremony was one of our favourite parts of the day, specifically for David was the moment that he lifted my veil.
During the ceremony we had a string quartet playing and we treated our guests to drinks outside the church which went down a storm!
My parents bought our family home when I was very little and have completely renovated it and it meant so much to me and my family to be able to hold my reception there.
We wanted a personal, informal and fun theme but added a touch of class with purple and silver decorations.
A lovely surprise was the three best men’s hilarious speech with a “true or false” quiz that required audience participation.
Rather than traditional wedding favours we donated to Cancer Research and Alzheimer’s society on behalf of our guests.
Our catering was provided by Toms Kitchen, Oakington who did a fabulous job.
The tasty late evening kebabs were a complete hit!
The fun Photo Booth provided us with some lovely, silly memories.
Daniela, our photographer, was a brilliant photographer and got all the shots we needed without being intrusive or demanding. Photography: http://www.danielakphotography.com
