Shiny, Happy People – best wedding speeches ever!

Smiles all around at Astley Bank Hotel

I start this blog post with an apology.

I try to put a selection of images on the blogs so people can have a sneak peak into real weddings and gain inspiration for their own wedding. I try not to put loads and loads of images in and carefully select which images we love.  The thing is, with this wedding, I simply could not cut down these images, especially when it came to the speeches.  So for that I’m sorry!

We always look forward to the wedding speeches. The laughter, the smiles, the tears of joy and of sadness. And there’s always one person who has everyone in stitches. Well, for this wedding all 3 speeches were amazing. The best we’d ever seen. The photos clearly show this and the room was in constant laughter.

Vicki and Richard both work at Minerva Crafts, alongside Vicki’s Mum and Dad.  It’s their family business and we can clearly see why when we discovered Vicki’s mum made all the dresses including the wedding dress.  You can read all about the dresses in Vicki’s own blog.  It was also the first time we had worked with Freezeframe Productions and apart from being a great team to work with on the day, the highlights video from Vicki and Richard’s wedding is lovely to watch.

This wedding is simply about fun, family and friends. As we turned up in the morning it became very clear that the wedding would feature lots of laughs, giggles and amazing smiles. It’s fair to say we had such a fun time and are only sorry it finished.

Moments that stole the day:
  • The girlie gossip in the morning. Archie may have blushed a few times!
  • The amazing dresses designed and made by Vicki’s mum.
  • The unexpected response when telling the groomsmen to ‘freestyle’. Not one remained standing!
  • And obviously, the speeches. We haven’t laughed so much in ages. They have clearly set a benchmark now.

Check out the amazing cake from Darwen Deli.  It’s absolutely gorgeous.
