An amazing wedding at Crowne Plaza with a trip to Speke Hall.
Lauren and Phil; Their Story.
Planning your wedding is no easy task. From choosing your venue, your dress, the suits, who will be bridesmaids, best man, the cake, will it be chicken or beef, all way right down to the little details of which font will go onto the place cards for the table plan!
I like to send out a few questions to my brides and grooms about a month before the big day to get to know them a little and to find out which lovely suppliers they’ve asked to help make their day so special.
Lauren and Phil tied the knot at the former Liverpool John Lennon Airport Terminal, Crowne Plaza, before heading to the historic Speke Hall and then going back to Crowne Plaza to celebrate with family and friends.
A truly fabulous day, filled with so many happy moments, fun with lots and lots of laughter.
