Nicole and Elliott were originally set up on a date by Nichol’s best friend, Chloe. The couple clicked straight away and a simple, at home proposal sealed the deal.

“I was sure that I must be married in a church as I believe that our marriage should be in the presence of God. The Anglican Cathedral was beautiful, the ideal location, and the Dean was fantastic and made us very relaxed throughout the ceremony. We chose Waterford Castle because we loved the idea of having a castle on a private island to ourselves. The thought of being able to take our closest 90 friends and family away for a full weekend was a real treat and the lodges on the island allowed this to be a reality. I had a vision of a relaxed colour scheme of pastels and added button details to give the day a vintage feel,” explained Nichol.

The couple had a huge bridal party which included ten bridesmaids! The girls wore pastel toned dresses in various shades, which were detailed with lace. The little ladies each wore ivory lace dresses designed and created by Guinevere’s Dream in Sheffield and pretty floral crowns in their hair.

Nicole teamed her Essence of Australia wedding gown with gold Louboutin’s for the ceremony and then changed into a pair of glittery Jimmy Choo’s for the nights dancing!

“The ceremony was so memorable. We had two beautiful readings by Elliot’s Mother and my sister, Toni. We sang ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ as the weekend commemorated the Bradford City FC disaster which is close to our hearts,” added Nichol.

The impressive wedding cake was decorated entirely from chocolate! “I loved the fact that Choccywoccydoodah use chocolate for all of their designs – I really do not like icing! Their designs are such show stoppers. The theme was vintage pastel tea party with birds to link to the bird cage designs on the stationery,” explained Nichol.
