Laura and Chris Griffiths were married at Peckforton Castle wedding venue in Cheshire– on Friday the 13th.
From the bride: Chris and I got married on Friday 13th March 2020.
We did this for a couple of reasons; one the suppliers were more readily available due to superstition around the date and two we wanted to represent making your own luck in life and we believe we were extremely lucky to find each other.
Friday the 13th wasn’t where our wedding started, but it was where it came to life and we had the most amazing day.
I have always loved Maggie Sottero dresses but never envisaged myself in the dress that I chose. I knew from the second I put the third dress on that it was the one, I always thought it was a myth that you just knew but it really isn’t.
I loved everything about it – particularly the classic style as I didn’t want it to date when we look back at our pictures and video for years to come. I just knew that I would never ever regret my dress choice.
Because it was quite simple, I opted to add a belt which finished it off beautifully and I also got a crystal-embellished veil to tie in with the crystals on the dress.
One thing I wanted to be sure of was having enough to keep our guests occupied as you often hear of the ‘lull’ between the daytime and evening reception.
We wanted something a little unique so we had outdoor mini-golf and games such as jenga which were a massive hit, we had a mind-reading magician who was amazing with very current tricks using Netflix and mobile phones so it really gripped our guests and we had a photo booth in the evening.
I went with seasonal flowers in creams and dusky greens – they were perfect. I had a teardrop bouquet which I wanted to have as it was slightly different to the round bridesmaid bouquets as opposed to just being a larger version of their bouquet.
