Kerry & Max…

Today we share with you the AWESOME colourful wedding of Kerry & Max. Kerry and Max recently got married at Poplar Farm, Sutton on Sea and it was a true colour explosion! With an amazing Couture Company dress, bright felt wedding bouquet, a rainbow tiered cake and some enormous balloons, this wedding will knock your socks off!

The photographer was Laura from Babb Photo, a Mr & Mrs Unique supplier, so Im super chuffed to share these images with you.

Here Kerry the bride tells us all about her day and what inspired them…

Tell us how you met…

We met on an internet dating site. Sick to the teeth of drunken  leering men on nights out me and my best friend signed up to Plenty of Fish as a laugh… I never expected to marry the man I found on there.

How would you describe your wedding theme…

What was your main plan for the day…

Myself and Max love to be outside. We have a modified caravan and spend many weekends travelling the UK.  We both fell in love with Sutton on sea after family holidays there.

I am rainbow mad and Max is very tolerant of my ways. Max likes things quirky and different but leaves the creativity up to me. We didn’t want one set theme as such we just combine the things we enjoyed… the seaside, rainbows and camping.

Our main aim for the day was for it to be fun. Neither of us do formal particularly well so we opted for a relaxed approach. We incorporated our seaside location by having fish and chips for our dinner and candy floss and popcorn in the evening. We added colour and rainbows wherever possible.  I love to make things and be creative so I made and planned as many things myself as possible.

What was your favourite part of the day…

Being able to soak up the sea breeze with everyone I love. Having our wedding at a seaside location it was important to me that we experienced the beach at some point. So after our fish and chip dinner with mini donuts for pudding we went for a wander on the beach front with ice lollies and champagne.

The beach makes me happy and we had such amazing weather it was beautiful. My oldest friend also devised an old school garage set for the disco. It was amazing and i felt like i was 18 again bouncing around the dance floor.

What was your budget…

Around £7000

What was your biggest expense…

The transport and my dress. I had always said I’d buy a nice simple and reasonable dress but I attended the EWE wedding Fair in Birmingham and saw this dress and before trying it or any others on I knew I had to have it.  I knew that the Couture Company would be able to work with me to get a unique and personalised dress.

How did you save money…

All of our evening entertainment was donated to us by friends and family. The band were max’s Dad’s band which was fantastic. To have people close to us perform at our wedding was really special.

We also ran an honesty bar. Our venue didn’t have an alcohol licence so we bought wine’s and beers and asked people for donations at the Bar. Hiring a bar would have cost us £300. We spent about that on alcohol for the evening and got a lot of that back to put towards out honeymoon. It also made it cheaper for our guest who had travelled a long way and paid for accommodation etc.

I also made all of the decorations myself (With a lot of help from friends and family). I think a lot of people were worried about my ideas… I couldn’t describe my vision very well, but I could see it in my head. The day before the wedding everyone pulled together to set up and it was a perfect explosion of colour. I told everyone that this is what the inside of my brain looks like!!

Advice to any couples about to get married…

Something my mum said to me was “If something doesn’t happen right the only people to notice will be you. So don’t worry and go with the flow” This was so true. I had ideas of how things would pan out in my head. lots of things didn’t quite go to plan but they still worked just differently and know one knew any different.  
Accept help. Being a little bit of a control freak I really felt like I wanted to do everything myself, and that no one could do it like I wanted. I wanted to make things create things and generally get my craft on.

I have fibromyalgia and other chronic illnesses that affect my health, energy levels and cause me a lot of pain. I was so poorly in the lead up to the wedding lots of things I wanted to achieve didn’t happen. Fortunately my amazing friends and family rallied around to help me and once I had accepted I needed help it worked really well and it was much more fun working on my creations with others especially with a glass of wine to help.

If any other brides or grooms have chronic illnesses make sure you plan for them. As much as we don’t want these things to affect our special day the chances are they will. Make sure you are comfortable and that you can take breaks if needed. Most importantly that word all chronically ill people get sick of hearing – Pace! Pace yourself. Some people were worried about our choice to have our wedding ceremony so early in the day but I knew this would be best for me, as it would give me the chance to take it slowly and have a break if needed. Lastly give yourself time to recover.

Thank you so much for sharing this pretty EPIC wedding with us… all the best for your future together Xx

    We loved working with Kerry & Max every step of the way with their felt and button bridal order. The brief was colourful and we created our most colourful bouquet to date. Love this Rainbow Wedding so much. Congratulations again! x
