The most amazing day a bride could ask for
Amazing day.. Everythin was beautiful all in yellow and white and blue.. may wedding spring turning to summer new beginnings and fresh colours on the trees what more do you want when getting married out doors.. the morning started with a wonderful woman coming to the house and did my hair all classic vintage I felt like a movie star.. then all my brides mades had rolls and curls absolutely beautiful all in yellow . Lemon and daffodil. My morning dress was white lace with a dimontie brouch sash. Train that felt a mile long.. my mum and made of honour helped me in (lucky ) as all pearl style button back. My something blue next my husband to be bought me my earnings and necklace which was blue diamonds.. and my present to my partner was a pocket watch engrat saying meet me at the end of the aisle for 12 oclock . (Time we was getting married) my something borrowed was my veil from one of my brides maids wedding which until I put in I was ok with not nervous till then and I cried the house down it was coming to real. My new was a beautiful hair slide vintage feather.. my something old I cried all over again it was my late Nana's Chanel number 5 I was complete.. my mum then passed my flowers which where white and yellow including daffodils Lilly's roses and wild flower the three generations favourite flowers wrapped in pure silk ribbon with a locket on the end having my Nana and grandad in so I knew they was there on my big day.. then we heard a noise the car arrived we arrange for the wedding it was a campervan a reminder of me and my husband past ( we went to a campervan festival) nerves kicked in again as everyone in the street was stood at the door to see me off .. arrived to kings croft hotel located in Pontefract there was yellow ribbon every where.. my step dad walked me down the aisle which felt like forever was horrified he made me giggle though as he tripped on my dress .. we Wales slowly behind my brothers and brides maids to the song my girl. Got to the end it was a lovely glass dome surrounded by water and flowers and ducks.. my family all looking at me my husband looking amazing in his blue tails suit. We said our vows which we both wept through. Had stand by me song on reminder for my Nana. Went in to the room where we was seated for our food.. all white linen and flowers and candles every where looked like a fairly tale.. we had our four course meal and the speaches which my husband couldn't complete as was to emotional for him. Once that was finished everyone went out in the sun shine and had drinks and appetizers and cupcakes .. while I got in dress number two very similar but tea length long sleeve Lace . We walked back into the room where the evening was setting up. Candy floss candy cart. Chocolate fountain. And pop corn. And in the corner was a lady that was face painting. All the evening guests arrived as we then cut the cake which was four layers my mum did for me. Chocolate. Fruit. Sponge and red velvet.. dressed in flowers and ribbon and the top was asiluette of dancers. (Reminder of me and my husband going for lessons for our first dance) ready for our dance as everyone standing around all eyes on us we danced to she's like the wind (dirty dancing) the first show we was in London together I was so embarrassed as my veil fell of as he spun me around. Eyes every where looking at us tears from those you dint expect. Soon as the dance finished my mum grabbed me and said I f###ing love you it was so funny. Second dance we did the waltz with couple of the guest from our dance class to tale as old as time (beauty and the beast) it went smoothly this time.. as everyone was on the dance floor it was time to get cheesy and doing the macarana and YMCA and the rest. We sneaked out for photos 100s later I felt like a movie star surrounded by paparazzi. We went back in as the night was drawn in. Had a final dance with my other number one man on my step dad as we danced to my girl. Everyone around up clapping and everyone dancing with there loved ones. The night finished what a beautiful day it was kissed everyone good bye and good night couldn't be any happier with all the guests and gifts two families brought together I couldn't been any happier marrying my best friend that I have known half my life xx

Lovely venue brilliant staff
We had a fantastic day due in part to the brilliant staff they were professional friendly and couldn't do enough for us. They set the tables up for us perfectly and the master of ceremonies guided us through the day and was always on hand if we had any questions we couldn't of asked for better staff. The food was amazing so tasty, good sized portions and all the food looked lovely everyone commented on how good it was . Would highly recommend this venue.
