Kelly and Richard had a wonderful spring wedding day surrounded by their family and friends. The weather remained dry throughout the day, so David from Image Control Photography was able to capture some lovely photos of them in the Gardens at Parklands.

Kelly and Richard had a civil ceremony at Parklands, Kelly wore a beautiful white traditional dress, their day had cerise theme, the bridesmaids wore fully length cerise dress, and the best man and ushers had cerise ties, the flower girls looked wonderful in their stunning white dresses with cerise flowers, so despite the overcast day, it was a very bright fun day.

Where did you get engaged and how long had you been together before hand?

“We got engaged at home, on the sofa, something we had talked about it was just a question of when he would ask. We had been together a year and a half


How many venues did you visit before you chose Parklands as your wedding venue?

“Parklands was the only venue we looked for the wedding”

How did you feel when you first visited Parklands, did you know straight away that you wanted to get married here?

“It felt right. That it was the only place that we wanted to get married. It ticked everything on my list.


What was your first step of wedding planning? Venue search, dress shopping, choosing a date etc?

“Venue was first, but with visiting we chose the date. Which we then moved a year forward!!

How many months/years in advance did you book your wedding?

“Originally we booked 18 months in advance for March 2014, but in Feb 2013 moved the date to March 2013”

What was the hardest thing about planning your wedding day?

At first it was the waiting as we had 18 months, but the hardest thing was choosing a photographer!

What were the highlights of your day?

“Becoming a Mrs. For me the ceremony was the highlight. But the whole day was just perfect.”

Do you have any advice for Bride and Grooms that are just starting their wedding plans?

“Spreadsheets!! Helped me keep track of the budget and what we had paid and when things needed to be paid!! And try and enjoy it!”
