REAL WEDDING

"Happy Wife, Happy Life!"

Having met 10 years ago through work, Kayla and Sam reconnected after coincidentally bumping into each other in a shop. As is life, these little moments have prevalence, and the couple began a love story which saw them reach two huge milestones within two months – having a lovely little daughter and getting engaged.

Rich in Romance

Despite having to cancel their initial wedding day, Kayla and Sam Riches tied the knot on 24th July 2021, at the renowned Clarion Hotel in Boldon. Resplendent in grand furnishings and wonderful private gardens, this four star venue oozes an informal and relaxing vibe – perfect for Kayla and Sam’s vision of a laidback love-in with all their friends and family.

 WE LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THE CLARION. THE SUPPORT AND HELP FROM THE STAFF IS SECOND TO NONE, SO WE JUST KNEW WE HAD TO BE MARRIED THERE.

KAYLA, THE BRIDE

Adopting a lilac and grey colour scheme, Kayla and Sam’s reception was a joy-filled extravaganza with smiles emanating from every corner of the room – perhaps a sign of the relief that this duo were finally able to get hitched. 

Get the Luxe:

Kayla looked incredible in her sleek fitted gown from Guest List boutique Amore Brides. A scooping neckline, incredible full length embroidery and a sweeping train were enough to have Sam counting his lucky stars. 

Topped with a subtle headband and beautiful glowing makeup from Jodie Lee Atkinson.

 

Q&A 

Most cherished memory? 

Saying I do with our daughter in our arms. 

What was your first dance song? 

James Arthur- Falling like the stars.

Presuming you’ll have a honeymoon once travel restrictions are lifted, where will you go? 

We haven’t really thought about it as we have a 3 year old and would not want to go anywhere without her, maybe Paris then a trip to Disney so our daughter can come too.

Biggest word of advice to newly engaged couples?
