Craig & Sian's wedding took place in September in the Sage Gateshead, that armadillo-shaped glass and stainless-steel building on the edge of the Tyne, which is home to a concert venue and a musical education centre. Sian's whole family is very musical. Her and Craig have that in common too, and Craig joined the swing band playing at their reception. Music featured in almost every part of their wedding day, so it was very fitting that they said their vows in a room in the centre of the Sage building.
Sian wore a beautiful simple dress with some lace and a short train and blue shoes, while her three maids wore tea-length blue dresses with lace to match and white shoes (they had some blue Converse to change in to for the reception) Sian found her dress in a closing down sale in Wales and got it for a fraction of its normal retail price. She chose bouquets of white flowers, green foliage and flowing ivy.
Craig's sister, Anna, is a designer who owns the company Origami Fox, and she made all the stationery, table names, table plan, and even designed labels for bottles of Stewart Brewing beer.
Kerry Faucet, of Beauty Direct did an amazing job of all the ladies' make up, and was in one of the bedrooms which was used as a place to go and calm down when everything got a bit much downstairs.
Craig wore a kilt, and his men wore dark blue suits with the most amazing peacock feather print inside them. They completed the blue and green theme perfectly.
The bride arrived with her dad in an old fashioned white VW Beetle, and in spite of the worst traffic I have ever seen in Newcastle, made it down the aisle just a couple of minutes late. There is not much more that needs to be said, other than enjoy these photographs of a special day - the day Wales won in the Rugby World Cup and entered the quarter finals (this was particularly special, as a lot of Sian's family is Welsh)!
