Where and how did you meet?
We both went to Lady Hawkins School, Kington and got together while we were in sixth form. Nine years later we finally tied the knot!



The wedding
At St Stephens Church, Old Radnor, followed by a reception in a marquee (supplied by Accasion Marquees) at The Knowle (Adams dads farm) which is just up the road from the church.


Brides gown
The dress was by Mori Lee in ivory satin-faced taffeta with a lace-up back and beautiful detail. It was bought from Amore Bridal Wear where the service from Laura was excellent.


Bridesmaids dresses
The bridesmaids wore Forever Yours dresses in raspberry taffeta from Amore Bridal Wear.


Suits
The classic grey tails suits were hired from Bill Child Formal Wear. The groom and best man wore cravats which matched the bridesmaid dresses, supplied by High Town Hire.



Flowers
The Flower Box, Knighton, supplied the bouquets and an impressive pedestal arrangement. Kirstys bouquet was a shower design with white roses and freesias and the bridesmaids had matching hand-tied bouquets.


Special touches
Make-up was done by Elaine from Elaines Beauty Spot and hair was done by Lucy Thompson, one of the bridesmaids.
Beautiful rose cupcakes were made by Kirstys mum and iced by Jo Cooke, a friend.

It was topped off with a fruit cake iced with a matching rose design made by Adams nan, Joan.



The day including the service
The bridal party stayed at the beautiful Little Quebb Cottage the night before the wedding and got ready there.

The bridal car was kindly provided by Marie Morgan and Andrew Searles and was driven by Steve Rickets. The bridesmaids were driven to the church by Craig Searles.

The marriage service was conducted by The Reverend Neil Weston and was made extra special by Lucy singing her version of Annies Song in the church.

Hafod Caterers provided canaps and an excellent three-course meal. They did a superb job despite having to be towed on to the field the day before!

Bridesmaid Lucy sung our first dance song Wherever You Will Go accompanied by the band, Colloosion from Ledbury. They were brilliant, performing a wide variety of songs, allowing our guests to dance the night away.

Everyone enjoyed a delicious hog roast in the evening provided by Golden Valley Hog Roasts.

We returned to Little Quebb for our wedding night.


The honeymoon
We enjoyed ten days relaxing at The Oyster Residence in Oludeniz, Turkey, thanks to generous contributions from our guests.


Precious memories
We thoroughly enjoyed the speeches which were very emotional. Adams dad produced a go-kart that Adam had made and which hed kept hidden away for the past 18 years. Everyone was in stitches as Kirstys dad read out a letter she had written to Santa when she was little! Adams speech had everyone in tears including the caterers. James managed to overcome his nerves and also delivered a fantastic speech (despite everyone stealing his lines).

The Friday before the wedding we had a months rainfall in one day. This created a few unforeseen problems with the marquee.
We would like to thank all of our amazing family and friends who pulled together and were there for us to help sort the marquee out.
Luckily the weather picked up somewhat for the Saturday, there were a few showers as we left the church, but nothing compared to the torrential rain wed experienced the day before.

Thanks to everyones hard work, not even the rain could spoil our special day.
