For Vikki and Pete there could be nowhere more perfect to be married in than the beautiful St Wilfrid’s Church in Davenham, which Pete would often see when growing up in his rural home farm in Whatcroft, Northwhich.

This rustic setting proved perfect for the vintage style of Vikki and Pete’s elegant wedding. With deep blue bridesmaid dresses, luscious red roses from Mayflower Bloom and a majestic double-decker bus, their wedding was most certainly a grand day out!

Vikki’s Allure dress, from Aurora Bride in Cheam, perfectly suited this handsome style with its flowing lines and elegant pearl decorated belt. Her hair, by Essence, fell in flowing ringlets, whilst her make up was done, with finesse, by none other than Vikki herself.

 

She stylishly arrived to the grand church in a classic Rolls Royce, which was coloured in a handsome cream and navy blue and was supplied by Horgans. Let’s not forget Pete who, decked out in a grey, fitted suit from Moss Bros with deep a blue cravat and dark jacket with tails, stood expectantly at the alter, awaiting the arrival of his bride.

St Wilfrid’s Church, with its isle decorated with delicate bouquets matching the bridesmaid’s own flowers and Gothic Revival features, created a grand, yet delicate, setting for Vikki and Pete’s big day.

Taking a classic Navy blue Jaguar to the reception, Pete and Vikki still found time for a couple of quick snaps in the glorious sunshine and countryside around Davenham before roaring off to their next venue.

The grand Vale Royal Abbey was the site for the gorgeous couple’s reception. Built with beautiful red sandstone and engraved elegant decorations, the Abbey was a fantastically picturesque location and offered some of the best views in the Cheshire area. The high ceilings and wooden oak features of the old venue made for a warmth and intimacy to the evening. Everyone there happily ate, drank, listened to the speeches given from a wooden podium, and danced to the lively music of The Mighty Septic Tank.

The wedding cake, cut by sword no less, was a simple yet unique. An arrangement of cascading tiers each wrapped in a red ribbon and adorned with a single sprig of blossoming red roses which sat upon white fondant icing sat encircled by a wreath of twigs and leaves.

All in all, the wedding was both a deeply personal and classically handsome affair, with the happy couple pouring both heart and home into their grand day. Both bright sunshine and colorful details made the wedding one which was full of both life and joy.
