Sharon Bennett and Alex Keddie
29, Royal Exchange Square, Glasgow
Sharon and Alex were married on Saturday 29th May 2010, at the aptly named 29, a gorgeous private members club, occupying 2 floors of a stunning 19th Century blonde sandstone premises in the hub of Glasgow’s vibrant cosmopolitan city centre.
The Bride looked absolutely stunning in a Berkertex white gown. It’s skirt deviated from the traditional and was undeniably pretty with full layers of falling, fluted tulle. The bodice was a slim, pleated asymmetrical shape, with a gorgeous sweetheart neckline. She perfected the look with a stunning jewelled headband, complementing her soft waved hair.
The theme incorporated white orchids, with splashes of coral and pink. Hurricane candles, mirrors and marble pillars all complemented the traditionally restored architecture of the venue .Tables had tall silver candelabras with trailing ivy and lush menus and place cards with subtle sparkle, designed by Wanderlust cards.
With the weather being on the couple’s side, many photos got taken outdoors on the terrace, as well as some fun contemporary shots outside stores such as Agent Provocateur.
The couple had a scrumptious 3 tier cake cake – chocolate, carrot and fruit – decorated with white chocolate ganache from the famous Harry Gow bakery in
Guests were treated to Mediterranean Vegetables and Mozzarella Salad to start, Scotch Beef and Yorkshire Pudding or Chicken with Mushroom and Shallot Jus for their main, and a Vanilla Cheesecake with Ice Cream and Toffee Sauce for dessert. Guests then tucked into tablet, left by the couple as their favour. The boys were especially delighted that there was not just wine on table, but also a bucket with mixed beers.
Sharon and Alex had their first dance to Hungry Eyes by Eric Carmen (from the film Dirty Dancing – great song choice!), following this with Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison. DJ
Thank-you for delivering our dream wedding...everything was better than I could ever have imagined!!
