After years of being friends and meeting at university Hayley and Andy finally started dating. Years of strong friendship led to a bond that was unconditional love which was sealed with the perfect question, popped on a holiday in Crete. On a cliff top walk under the stars after a wonderful dinner Andy asked Hayley to be his bride, which to her was a total surprise. What a beautiful story.
This lead them to start planning their big day which was held at the Statham Lodge Hotel, in Warrington, Cheshire. A beautiful building with wild flowers cascading down the walls. An absolute dream. They chose a classic theme of white and navy, the groomsmen and bridesmaids in navy, allowing Hayley to stand out and turn heads all day long in her stunning Maggie Stottero gown. This classic theme was truly complimented by the surroundings of the greens of the gardens and the classic building.
Every bride has her favourite moment and we loved Hayleys, "Walking down the beautiful church ailse decorated with roses and lanterns and seeing all the people I love altogether on such a wonderful day" sometimes it really is the raw love and atomosphere of the day that makes it truly unforgetable.
For Hayley's wedding we were touched to be her florist and even happier to know that on of her stand out moments of the day was her bouquet, "The beautiful O Hara roses in my bouquet-the most gorgeous roses Ive ever seen!" It was all wonderfuly beautiful and we are so happy it was everything Hayley and Andy wanted for their wedding day.
To help future brides we asked Hayley what tips she would give to future brides and grooms. "Plan everything a long time in advance and leave enough time for things e.g dress fittings 6 months before etc,do your wedding invite list early to avoid stress later on", and we couldn't agree more.
What Inspire Hire did for Hayley and Andy, "Lots of help with the flowers,church and venue decoration,making sure everything ran in a seamless fashion making it all stress free and fantastic and adding great artistic flair to the whole day."
We wish Hayley and her lovely new husband Andy all the best in married life and a huge congratulations on their wonderful wedding.
