Cheryl and Michael

On the 25th April a stunning bride floated down the aisle in a beautiful church to a handsome groom and they emerged Mr and Mrs Askell! I knew I was going to enjoy this wedding as both Michael and Cheryl are down to earth, fun loving people who planned a very informal relaxed day. There is a lot to be said for deciding against a formal sit down meal - it's becoming very common and you can spend the £££££ you save on a luxury honeymoon instead!

Cheryl and Michael were married at St Mary The Virgin Church in Ponteland and after a lovely ceremony (where the Vicar spoke a lot of wise words about marriage) we hit the Quayside for some Bride and Groom alone time. Well I say 'alone' however we had a few people congratulating the newlyweds!

Afterwards it was off to The Copthorne where their guests were waiting to welcome them as husband and wife and the drinks and canapes were flowing freely....which is always good at a wedding!
What was lovely about this wedding was how many people played a special part. For example, Cheryl got ready at her Aunties house and their 15 year old nephew played the piano during the drinks reception (and he was VERY good) and many little girls played the part of bridemaids or confetti girls! The whole day was fantastic and the newlyweds jetted off the next day to the States and, after a slight hiccup getting to Mexico (involving a guest appearance on Look North!) they ended up in Barbados.

I wish you both all the happiness in the world x
