From a simple "hello" to "I do." Gerri and Liam tie the knot in the gorgeous Hampton Manor in Arden. Romantic with a hint of glamour, these memories turned to photo will be forever timeless. We're loving these gorgeous train shots and intimate moments caught between the bride and groom.
The love story – We first fell for each other in a club called the Colosseum (not the classiest of places but hey!) Liam and I knew each other beforehand, but something was different that night. From that night onward we hit it off, a Blonde, 6ft 2, hunk swept little 5ft 5 me off my feet!
We were in a long- distance relationship for over 3 years, which at the time felt like forever. Liam proposed to me on a ski slope looking over Morzine in the French Alps whilst we were skiing with family and friends.
I had no clue, was totally shell-shocked but of course, said YES! We then moved to London which was a dream being able to see each other every day. We now live in Leamington Spa closer to loved ones as Mr & Mrs Brennan…and the rest is history :)
Most memorable – Our most memorable memory from the day was our first dance, to ‘I don’t want to miss a thing’ by Aerosmith. Liam swooped me off my feet like something out of a movie, everyone was cheering and screaming as he dropped me backwards sealed with a kiss.
He then picked me up and swung me around the room it was the BEST moment pretending for a second we could dance! We danced the night away to Ibiza House music all night long accompanied by Sarah Sax who was sensational.
Advice to other brides – Make sure to take a step back and allow for some time out as Mr & Mrs / newly-weds on the day.
We loved greeting our guests into the Wedding Breakfast, so we had a chance to say hello to everyone. Make sure to have a napkin ready for tears at the speeches, totes emosh!
I always knew I wanted a statement train just like my mums when she got married, a fit and flare silhouette was a must shape for me.
Thankfully I found the style ‘McKinley’ by Enzoani on Instagram and fell in love, my best friend also tagged me in this dress just as we got engaged which was very spooky! I checked the stockist and booked an appointment at TDR Bridal store to try it on.
As soon as I had the dress on, I knew it was THE ONE despite being too big I fell in love with the cup chain diamante straps, low back detail and super-duper train!
