Real Weddings | Tara & Kevin

1st Dec 2018

We take a look back to this time last year when Tara and Kevin tied the knot in their Winter wonderland themed wedding in December 2017.

The Proposal

My husband proposed to me at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, London whilst sitting on a ice sculpture in the shape of a throne. It was safe to say I said yes! Who wouldn't?

Why did you choose Careys Manor Hotel for your wedding?

The hotel had a sentimental meaning to me as I used to visit there often with my late mother for our indulgent spa days. Nothing better than a mother and daughter day at the spa to relax and unwind.

The Dress

Tara got married in her dream dress - a Disney dress by Alfred Angelo . The dress was called "Snow White" and was white. Her husband to be bought her a beauty and the beast Pandora bracelet to wear on her wedding day with a charm saying "to my amazing wife".

The Groom's Outfit

The groom got married in a gorgeous navy blue moss brothers suit with a red tie, with a little piece of his personality included  - a Thor hammer button hole to match his Thor socks, The Bride bought him a Armani watch for his wedding gift, which was engraved with the wedding date 10th December 2017 and he wore this on the special day.

The Bridesmaids

My sister Tammy and best friend Katrina were bridesmaids and they wore floor length dark red gowns to compliment the flowers with their hair up in braids.

The Ceremony

We had a lovely winter wedding in December at Careys Manor, with a woodland, forest theme by candle light. We had a saxophone player playing while I walked down the aisle  to the sound of "A thousand years".  On the way walking out of the room we had "rule the world playing".

The Reception

We had a snow white theme. In the evening we danced our first dance to "better place" by Rachel Platten, to a choreographed dance, it was amazing.

The Flowers

I had a bouquet of red roses. My favourite flower that signifies love.

How do you feel the day went?

The day was amazing, better then I ever dreamed off.  It was so magical. I wish we could do it all again as there was so many precious moments I would like to relive.

Any particular memories that stand out that you would like to share?

I got to spend the day with my best friend, my soul mate, my husband and all my close family and friends. Also the amazing speech my husband gave, there was not a dry eye in the house!
