Charlie began her preparations at Bannatyne Hotel with the help of Make Up Artist, Charlie’s friend Paula and Eden Hair. The atmosphere in the room was lovely with Nana and Mum popping in to join the girls. Charlie’s gorgeous dress was designed by Justin Alexander and was supplied by Miranda Marie Bridal Boutique of Yarm. The bride and bridesmaid’s bouquets were supplied by Eliza Bloom of Duke Street, along with all the beautiful room and table arrangements.
Ian & his best man James arrived approximately an hour before the ceremony to greet their guests and check that everything was going to plan, although George from Bannatyne Hotel had everything in order and was on hand all morning for anything that Charlie or Ian needed.
The ceremony was performed in Maxines by Darlington Registrars followed by drinks reception in the gardens, where everyone really did make the most of the sunshine, before heading in to the Wilbur Suite for the Wedding Breakfast.
Music was provided at the evening reception by band South West and Charlie and Ian were joined by more family and friends to continue their celebrations. The happy couple honeymooned in Paris, the perfect place for romance
