After working alongside each other, as paramedics, Kirsty knew from the get-go that Paul was the man she was going to marry, unfortunately however it took twelve years for him to realise it too!
In May 2017 they finally got back in touch and after a long wait, Kirsty finally got the proposal she waited for and so they began planning the biggest day of their lives…
With a rustic and glamorous theme in mind, the couple had their hearts set on a natural style with added hints of glitz and glamour.
Originally on their way to view a different venue, by chance, they passed Rockcliffe Hall and instantly fell in love.
Nestled on the outskirts of County Durham, this luxurious hotel, Rockliffe Hall, played home to the romantic wedding of Kirsty and Paul. With views of the stunning coastline and North Yorkshire moors, the hidden treasures of Rockliffe Hall promised a perfect setting and picturesque backdrop.
“It was set up exactly how we wanted, with the colours and theme I had looked at. The Orangery was simply beautiful and I knew straight away it would be perfect – we would definitely recommend this venue to anyone, it’s amazing.” – Kirsty
The captivating reception room was fitted with statement chandeliers and bursts of rose gold colours, adding glamour and opulence, while the rustic centrepieces and pink blossom trees created a sense of character and authenticity.
With the help of all the team at Rockliffe Hall, Kirsty and Paul were able to plan the wedding day of their dreams.
The Dress Of Her Dreams:
Kirsty – “I found my dream dress in Destiny Bridal in Middlesbrough – I had tried a few others on, in difference shops, but they just weren’t right. I kept going back to the same dress over and over and when I tried it on again, for the second time, I cried… that’s when I knew it was the one.”
To Kirsty’s surprise, this stunning Modeca ball gown stole her heart. Enhanced with floral lace applique and an elegant v-neck, Destiny Bridal made Kirsty’s dress shopping experience one she would never forget.
The Bride’s Words:
“The best advice I could possible give to any couple would just be to relax and enjoy it.
It’s your day; don’t worry about anyone else and who cares if the flowers don’t match the cake, as long as you’re both there, getting married, that’s all that matters.
