The wedding preparations of Mel and her bridesmaids took place at Brandshatch Place Hotel & Spa, where hair and makeup artist Emma Smisson did a splendid job of getting the blushing-bride ready for the big day! The gown, by Maggie Sottero was exquisite and as Mel slipped into her heels, placed her veil a-top her head and took her elegant bouquet by Flowers & Sparkle in hand, she looked absolutely breath-taking.

After a lovely ceremony at St Nicholas’ Church in Chislehurst, it was back to Brandshatch Place, where the reception area had been transformed and Toastmaster Barry Sims was waiting, eager to announce the happy couple, before the guests took their seats for the wedding breakfast.

The adorable table plans and more gorgeous flowers arranged by Flowers & Sparkle filled the space, with many guests smiling keenly at the gorgeous cake created by papillon patisserie.

One of the special touches of the day was Mel & Pete’s first dance routine they had prepared. Followed by the whole bridal party recreating the “I’m sexy and I know it” routine by LMFAO – complete with Redfoo afro and robot head! In no time the fantastic live music by The Somebody’s had everyone throwing some shapes of their own on the dance floor!

A fantastic day filled with romance, so much fun and laughter! Congratulations Mel & Pete and thanks a million for letting me capture your fantastic celebration! x
