Michelle and Ben – Dusty Rose and Gold Theme
Michelle and Ben met outside a nightclub while enjoying a night out, where Ben told Michelle that her shoes didn’t match her dress. Obviously it was just an excuse to talk to her (super sweet). Soon after, the couple became friends and a few months later started dating. The proposal was the biggest surprise, according to Michelle. Ben planned it while the couple were on holiday and they had just returned back to the room after dinner. Michelle walked in to find candles and rose petals everywhere! It was private, extremely romantic and just perfect.
In November of 2015 the couple made it official at St Mary the Virgin Church in Hurley. The wedding reception was hosted at The Olde Bell, Hurley and they had a beautiful dusty rose and gold theme. While drinks and canapes were served at the reception, a guitarist played a selection of the couples favourite songs to entertain the guests.
The couples wedding favours were their favourite; Reese’s peanut butter cup and Oreo brownies handmade by one of their closest friends and individually wrapped by the girls at Michelle’s the night before the wedding! They apparently went down a storm.
The wedding breakfast was a traditional three-course meal in the day followed by a hog roast in the evening. The couple said, unfortunately, they didn’t get to eat any of their own wedding cake – there was none left for them by the time they got round to it, so it must have been very good! A DJ entertained the crowd throughout the evening with a selection of music, including African songs added in as special requests for Michelle’s family.
Favourite moment: ‘It sounds so cliche but it was definitely arriving at the reception drinks; holding hands as husband and wife to be greeted by all the people we love in one room. It was a pretty special feeling for us.
