What a strange coincidence: I have two weddings in the space of a single week where the grooms sing an Oasis number at the reception – totally unrelated, but there’s definitely a taste of “rock n roll star” in the air this week!
Before I start curling my lip and drawing out every last syllable, on this blog post, I’ll tell you more about the wedding. This one is simple, elegant and guaranteed to make you smile. Yasmin & Darren Forrester were married at Turkey Mill in Kent, and chose Billie and Matt Photography to capture their day on camera.
Who proposed, and how?
It was on the 22 September 2011. We were on a sunset cruise off the coast of Jamaica in the Caribbean Sea. After seeing a rainbow and a school of dolphins following our boat we both witnessed the most amazing sunset. Once the sun went down Darren went onto one knee and made me the happiest girl ever.
The venue: Turkey Mill, Maidstone, Kent
Photographer: Billie and Matt Photography
We had a personalised civil ceremony, with the reading “A Walled Garden”. We wrote a personal message of Celebration which was read by a close friend and had a performance of Lifted by John Legend sung by a close friend.
The reception: highlights
The wedding party and guests performing the Electric Slide to the song ‘Candy’ and the groom taking the mic and singing Wonderwall by Oasis backed up by his groomsmen.
There are too many to mention, every minute of that day holds a different memory and feeling. The confetti shot was fun and seeing the guests’ delight at the sweet table was errrr….. interesting (those sweets never had a chance). We had a LED dance floor so the first dance was extra special. All in all it was an amazing day.
Wedding day advice:
Try your very best to enjoy every minute. During the meal try to spend a little time with your guests, each table at a time, as they will really appreciate it. Take at least 10 minutes to take a walk, or time out from the occasion, as newlyweds.
