Real Weddings: Vintage Pastels – Kate and Mark.

Today’s real wedding comes from the heart of Manchester. This beautiful couple fell in love with their venue at a close friend’s wedding and knew it was the one for them. They chose the Manchester Marriott Victoria & Albert after being married at St Luke’s by Mark’s dad, who is a deacon at the church, making it a very special occasion.

After such an easy decision to find the perfect venue, finding a colour scheme was not as simple. Kate knew she wanted vintage pastels, but once she found the colour of the bridesmaids’ dresses, the rest followed. Including her beautiful bouquet by Dotties Pantry.


With the men dressed by Slater’s, it was just left to Kate to find her own wedding dress. After searching the internet for plus size dresses, Edith & Winston Bridalwear was the first shop she went to. Kate said she felt so welcomed, and so at ease. She tried on about eight dresses, before falling in love with a Callista gown called London. Becca, the owner of the boutique, had chosen it as something a little different to for Kate to try and instantly Kate fell in love with it. She also chose a Rainbow Club veil to finish her look.

Kate said: “It fit me so well, and being conscious about my arms, the matching jacket was perfect and covered them and yet still looked so elegant”.



Kate and Mark chose the wonderful Rebecca Wade Photography to capture her special day. To see more please click on the images below.
