Rebecca and Dan shared with friends and family a heart-warming and exciting wedding day at Thornton Manor in the Wirral. They dazzled their guests throughout the day with the many talents they both share.
They tied the knot in St Mark’s church in the gorgeous village of Saltney. The church set the scene perfectly for these two love birds to get married and held the epic confetti tornado that followed the ceremony.
After the church wedding ceremony Rebecca and Dan along with all their guests made the journey down to the exquisite 19th century Thornton Manor Estate in the Wirral, England.
Rebecca sparkled throughout the day in her luscious, sparkly and elegant gown with Dan almost sparkling as much in his dapper suit. From hair to make up Rebecca was flawless and her bridesmaids were looking unreal to and let’s not forget the mother of the bride who well and truly slayed!
The day was going amazing but the surprise of a choreographed dance from the father of the bride and Rebecca surely did amaze. This flowed into the sassiest salsa which was a first dance for Rebecca and Dan that they and their guests will always remember. The romantic song that followed sang by them both written by Rebecca for Dan definitely topped of the day. I am really excited to share with you a collection of photos from the day as they capture a day that will always be remembered. Hope you love the photos xx
And here is thier story…
How you met –
We met at a salsa party in Connah’s Quay on bonfire night 5th November and were introduced by our mutual friends Cat and Arthur who has just started dating and are now married too. The proposal – We were in Croatia on holiday. I’d been travelling for 2 months and we’d not seen each other. Dan had just competed in the Island Games in Sweden and I persuaded him to come directly to Croatia instead of going home first. Little did I know he had a ring at home and he was planning on proposing. On our last day in Dubrovnik we went for a meal and then came back to our apartment where he proposed with a pair of Swarovski earrings which I wore on my wedding day. Back in Wales we went for a walk in Anglesey over the headland and afterwards he got down on one knee and proposed again this time with the ring.
Wedding vision –
We chose Thornton Manor as our wedding venue as it is steeped in history and the manor house is magical which beautiful gardens and lots of open space. Our colour scheme was a deep purple which is our favourite colour and grey to contrast. We decided to go with a more rustic theme with hessian runners, tea lights, candelabras, lavender and beautiful purple flowers in jam jars on each of the tables as well as honey pots and seeds as favours due to our love of honey. Both of us are passionate musicians and dancers so our cake was music themed and our guest book was a white guitar. We performed bachata and salsa for our first dance with a special father daughter choreographed dance also. We also played a set in our duo Affinity where I played a white piano.
