Vegas to Wynyard: Alexandra and Paul’s American Dream Wedding Celebration


“It was perfect.”
Alexandra and Paul’s whirlwind romance began on a night out with work friends. Their relationship blossomed, around one week later, when Paul turned up at Alexandra’s work to ask her on a date – they’ve never looked back since!

The couple fell in love with the idea of a traditional wedding however, feeling like they had lost control over their special day, Alexandra and Paul jetted off to the USA, to tie the knot in Las Vegas.

The Venue:

After an outdoor ceremony on a rooftop in Las Vegas, Alexandra and Paul spent their night at The Stratosphere restaurant, 800ft in the air, overlooking the bright lights of the Vegas strip.

When returning from America, the couple celebrated with family and friends at the stunning setting of Wynyard Golf Club.

This luxurious venue, situated on the outskirts of Durham, was perfect for Alexandra and Paul’s wedding celebrations. Set in over 200 acres of woodland, Wynyard Golf Club promised a beautiful backdrop and a haven of tranquillity.  

Alexandra – “When we originally booked Wynyard Golf Club, it was for an all day ceremony, the thought of having drinks on the veranda overlooking the greenery was just wonderful and from the moment we arrived we could picture ourselves getting married there.
We had nothing but complements on the food, the staff and the venue itself - it was perfect.”

The Dress:

“It was the third dress I tried on, it made me feel so different to the others, I can’t describe how but I didn’t want to try any more on afterwards and I have already forgotten about those prior.

I bought the dress around six months before the wedding and kept trying it on panicking I wouldn’t like it anymore but each and every time, I fell in love all over again.” - Alexandra

The bride stepped out in a beautiful Ronald Joyce gown, fit for a queen. This gorgeous figure flattering dress with stunning embellished bodice and floor length veil, boasted elegance and beauty.

The Bride’s Advice:

“Be open to change as things go along. We started to argue because of so many people getting involved in our plans – take a step back and try not to please everyone else. We were doing what we thought we were supposed to do, rather than what we wanted.

Our entire plan changed completely and it was the best idea we could have had.”
