Boutique Beauty

Boutique-Beauty-1Sarah and Michael review the Hyatt’s five-star luxury boutique hotel, Andaz Liverpool Street during their mini-moon in the city of London.

After two years of planning I finally walked down the aisle in June and the day was everything I had hoped for. My husband - I still can’t believe I can now call him that - had been putting up with a total bridezilla for the past few months, so I really wanted to spoil him with the honeymoon; his dream has always been to sail around the Caribbean. However, with the summer months being more prone to hurricanes we decided to put off our trip until later in the year. To tide us over I booked us a surprise mini-moon to London. London is one of our favourite cities in the world; I don’t think there is anywhere else like it. As we stepped off the train at Liverpool Street Station, we bumped into a large group of women who were dressed like adult Victorian dolls.

The Tables are Turned

the-tables-are-turned-1Award winning British bridal designer Charlotte Balbier and her partner Edward Bedford celebrated their marriage in December 2013 in the idyllic Shropshire countryside. At the recent White Gallery bridal exhibition, Features Editor Amber O’Shaughnessy snatched a bit of time with the famous designer for an exclusive chat about her big day.

Creating Wedding Fashion is your daily business as a bridal fashion designer. Nevertheless, was it something special for you to create your own wedding dress?

I created a couple of dresses for my big day. The day dress was a silk organza full ball gown skirt with a deep French lace trim. The bodice was fitted and boned with a sheer tulle neckline and three-quarter sleeves.

Love from Scotland

love-from-scotlandRomana and Reece combined family tradition with an element of the new for a unique day of love.

Our Love Story

Reece and I met 11 years ago at a friend’s house in Glasgow. There was an instant attraction; I loved his sense of humour and his whole outlook on life. I’ll be forever thankful to my friend for introducing me to the man that would later become my husband.

The Wedding of Any Year

the-wedding-of-any-year-1Ian Radford, Chairman of the majorly successful Sala Group, and his long-term partner, Claire Strutton pulled out all the stops for a beautiful British summer wedding with their closest family and friends.

One Day at a Time

I had been living in Marbella just over a year when Ian and I were introduced at a work related meeting. At the time, I didn’t know many people in Marbella but I knew straight away that Ian and I would be good friends, and we were. Those first few years weren’t particularly easy; as a single parent I was working all day and going home in the evening to look after my son. I wasn’t sure if I was even going to stay in Spain but Ian was one of the few people who made my day brighter. He has an infectious giggle and even though I joke that he has Angry Tourette’s, you won’t ever meet a kinder, fairer person. He was one of my best friends for the two years before we became a couple and most definitely kept me sane!

Sealed With a Kiss

sealed-with-a-kiss-1Louise and Andrew’s wedding was a truly international affair

The Love Boat

Andrew and I met in 1996, while working in the casino on-board the SS Atlantic cruise liner sailing around the Bahamas. Our departure from port had been delayed due to Hurricane Bertha, so we had our first date at the Atlantis hotel, Nassau. It was very romantic.

Shortly after moving to Suriname in South America we met up with friends for a rum-tasting evening when, out of the blue, Andrew felt the time was right to get down on one knee and ask me to marry him. After I accepted his proposal we celebrated till dawn and sat by the side of the huge wide river and saw the sun come up, giggling to each other about what we had just done. It was a lovely time.

Endless Amour

endless-amour1The French Connection

David and I are high school sweethearts. When I was 14 my family and I moved to Sotogrande from France. I met David in Sotogrande and we started dating when I was 16. David is from Gibraltar and I am French. We both attended university in different countries and used to meet every summer. We lived together in London for a few years before David proposed in 2009 in Gstaad, Switzerland while on a skiing holiday with friends. This was a very romantic but unusual proposal on a ski-lift with beautiful views of the Swiss Alps. Three years on, David and I are now the proud parents of a one year-old boy called Matthew.

An Infinite Love

an-infinite-love-1Vicki and Keiran brought a hint of Scottish style to their Spanish wedding celebration.

Eyes Wide Shut

Kieran and I met on a blind date. One of Kieran’s colleagues, who was a client of mine at the time, set the whole thing up. After a happy five years together, Kieran took me completely by surprise and proposed to me on a gondola in Venice. The hopelessly romantic setting of Venice was the perfect place for Kieran to ask that all-important question and I, of course, said yes!

From Scotland to Spain

Kieran’s sister inspired us to get married in Marbella after she chose it as her wedding destination eight years earlier. Weather was also a huge factor for us - Scotland doesn’t often offer cloudless skies whereas the Coast boasts all-year round sunshine. We visited Marbella a few times before the wedding and

Make Your Heart Sing

make-your-heart-sing-3Mike and Shelley married in a Scottish inspired wedding at the majestic Marbella Club

Going the Distance

Mike and I met in Sketch Bar in Mayfair, London. I was out for dinner with my best friend and Mike was out with clients. He approached me after dinner at the bar and before we knew it, we were having a great night out together with both sets of our friends. I never thought anything would materialize from it as he was living in New York at the time. He was travelling a lot between New York and London with work and the next time he was in town, he asked me out for a drink. We had a great night together and both instantly felt something really special. It became apparent in the early stages that we both had strong feelings for each other. The only problem was that we lived in different countries!

Crazy in Love

crazy-in-love-2The Beach House owners Guy and Lucy McCrow had a dreamy white wedding at their own restaurant for a day that was close to their heart

Our Story

We got together in 2002 having met the year before. At the time Guy’s sister and my brother were dating and we got to know each other through their relationship.

Foolish Love

In 2010, Guy proposed to me in Dubai in a lovely restaurant called Pier Chic. As anybody that knows Guy will tell you, he doesn’t take life too seriously and is a bit of a joker, so the proposal, of course, was not without a bit of buffoonery! I knew that Guy was going to propose at some point during the holiday so, when he told me we were going to Pier Chic on what was the penultimate night of our holiday, I guessed the time had come.

You are my Rock

you-are-my-rock-1Childhood Sweethearts

Daniel was my first boyfriend at the young age of 15. We were together for about two years then decided it was best to go our separate ways; we were very young and neither of us was ready to take things to the next stage. Daniel moved to the UK to find work and we both went on with our lives without any contact for 20 years. I started work in Gibraltar and life went on; however I always felt that it was not the end between Daniel and me. Twenty years later, I was still living on The Rock, when I received news that Daniel had returned to Gibraltar. I instantly felt butterflies in my stomach and couldn’t wait to see him. After about a week we bumped into each other and...let’s just say the rest is history as we are now happily married with a six-month-old son, Oliver. I couldn’t be happier!

Love always wins

love-always-wins-2For Sophie and Bart, the decision to marry in Sotogrande was an easy one and they were even able to arrange their wedding to suit the bride’s carefree, bohemian style!

Love At First Sight

We met four years ago in Dubai when I joined the company that Bart was working at. After a lot of sneaky glances at each other and a few dates it was clear to both of us that we were serious about each other. One day early on we stayed in bed all day watching DVDs and I actually called my best friend that night and said I’ve met the man I’m going to marry - and four years later we did!

Childhood Memories

We chose Spain because my parents have had a place in Sotogrande for years. It’s such a magical place; every summer I would spend July and August there as a child and it’s where so many happy memories have been made. When it came to choosing a venue and location we knew right away that Cancha II was the place we wanted to tie the knot. We were look-ing for a more relaxed feel to the
