The bride wore blush pink, the groom navy blue, complete with a romance-luxe theme – this gorgeous wedding was very on trend.

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 Chandler married Max Newiss on 26th September, 2014, at Adlington Hall, Cheshire.


Oh-so stylish: Image 2aWe loved the history of Adlington Hall. It was grand, full of character and provided us with outside and inside entertaining options, whatever the weather.

The dress, I went for was the first one I saw. I think I tried on five more but I knew it was the one. It was a really unusual colour and suited my skin tone – and I'd never seen anyone wear this colour before.


Oh-so stylish: Image 4aMax wore a bespoke royal blue three-piece suit from King and Allen, accessorised with a crisp white shirt and dusky pink tie.

Oh-so stylish: Image 4 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.

Hollie was my maid-of-honour, and my bridesmaids were my friends Anne, Naomi, Heidi and Laura. They wore long navy dresses which suited them all.


Oh-so stylish: Image 6aThe cake was in the shape of a birdcage in dusky pink and blue hues – everyone said it tasted lovely.

Oh-so stylish: Image 6 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.

Asha from Motivstudio Photography is a friend of mine and I love the style of her and her husband Radek's work, so they were the only choice for me.

My hair and make-up stylist Nancy has been a friend for more than 10 years and we've worked together on various photo shoots. She's amazing and offered to do it for me as a wedding gift which was a generous surprise.


Oh-so stylish: Image 10aWe 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.

Oh-so stylish: Image 10 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.

The best man was Max's friend Peter, and the ushers were his brother Sam and friends Bod, Dave and Mike. They wore grey suits with blue ties to match the groom.
