WWW readers Nicole and Tommy tied the knot on the 14th March 2014, holding their ceremony at the Guildhall Northampton followed by a reception at the Tithe Barn Wellingborough. They had a vision of a fun red polka dot wedding with a budget of £3000 to achieve it.
These two had so much fun all day long.
They had cute and kitsch red home made décor, with quirky stationery, sweets, fairy lights, balloons and felt bouquets.
Nicole looked amazing in her custom made custom made polka dot dress, red bow shoes, name necklace and red lips, while Tommy donned a hounds tooth suit with fab red bow tie. Brilliant.
Thanks so much to Steven Anthony Photography for sharing his amazing photographs today.
