Max proposed on a trip to Turkey in October, 2013, on the couple's second anniversary of dating. “I'd fallen pregnant in June, 2013, and Max wanted to make our family official,” recalls Kellianne. “It was very romantic; he'd hired a private boat to take us out on and propose while we were at sea. Unfortunately, due to the laid-back nature of the boat company, they were late and we missed the sunset. However, it was still amazing, and the most perfect proposal.”
The happy couple booked the wedding for 11 months later, which led to a busy year for Kellianne. “I had our daughter Daisy Grace in February – a busy summer season, as I'm a wedding photographer – and planned our September wedding!”
Kellianne tells Your Manchester Wedding more about their big day...
We loved the history of Adlington Hall. It was grand, full of character and provided us with outside and inside entertaining options, whatever the weather.
Daisy Grace was our flowergirl and it was wonderful for her to be a part of it.
Max wore a bespoke royal blue three-piece suit from King and Allen, accessorised with a crisp white shirt and dusky pink tie.
The florist did an amazing job with the bouquets and the room decorations. I wanted a mismatched look so flowers were displayed in varying types of vessels.
The cake was in the shape of a birdcage in dusky pink and blue hues – everyone said it tasted lovely.
I really like blue thistles and dusky pink roses, so they were the basis of my bridal bouquet, combined with pink baby's breath and other flowers. The bridesmaids carried smaller versions.
“I wore a lovely Art Deco-style headband to add a bit of sparkle to my outfit.” – Kellianne
“Toys and a ball pool kept the children occupied.” – Kellianne
We hired Dance Lady Dance for our evening do. Jayne and Dee are good friends of ours and we both enjoy the music they play – it was a no-brainer.
Our guest book was a big framed print of us that people signed on the day – we now have that up in our hallway. We had a Polaroid camera in the dressing up box, and have the pictures from these also hanging up at home.
