Real Wedding - Kirsty & Brad

I met Brad on the 08/08/08 at West Cornwall Hospital where I was working as a staff nurse. He phoned the ward to admit a patient but due to his Yorkshire accent I didn't understand him, so rudely said I would get the details when I saw him as I couldn't understand him.

A few minutes later I heard his accent again but this time he was standing in front of me. I was a little embarrassed but saw he was smiling so it soon settled. We worked together all weekend and by the Sunday had become 'Facebook friends' and he had sent me a message.

Basically, we have been together ever since.

We had our daughter in January of this year and a few days later while I was going through the baby blues he asked me to marry him. As soon as I knew we were getting married I was straight on weddingscornwall.co.uk and found the site amazingly useful. The site was really straight forward and user friendly and that's where we found the majority of our wedding contacts.

We got married on the 7th August 2010, just before our second year anniversary, at Lands End Hotel. The service there was excellent, especially from Vicky the organiser. We couldn't visit Lands End the day before as arranged as my son was in hospital, but my mother-in-law Cathy had luckily just come down from Yorkshire and went in our place and between her and Vicky everything was arranged, I didn't have to worry about anything. She organised all my table and room decorations the morning before the wedding which looked fantastic. She looked after everything all day even offering to look after our baby!

Lands End is a beautiful venue and as I grew up in Porthcurno and Sennen it was a perfect location for me. We looked out onto the Longships light house as we said our vows, it was great to focus on! Lovely views for our photos.

During our photos we had complimentary punch served outside. It was all perfect, I couldn't fault a thing.

My eldest son Leon gave me away, while my other son Luke was the ring bearer. I had lots of bridesmaids, including my sisters Terri and Mercedes, Brad's sister Kirsty, my God daughters Jess and Daisy, my niece Robyn and my little princess Lucy.

As there were lots of children at our wedding we hired a bouncy castle from Claire's Castles. That was the best thing we did! We hired our disco from Perfect Party, our DJ was called Enigma Discos, and he was great. He took a play list from us and basically tailored the wedding to our particular tastes.


As with most young families we tried to do our wedding on a budget and everything we did was great value for money. Our wedding cakes were from Marks and Spencers, little cup cakes and Cathy made us a giant matching cup cake so we still had a cake to cut, we kept that bit for ourselves and it was gorgeous! They were really tasty, loads to go round and not too expensive.

My bridesmaids dresses were red for the older ones and cream for the little ones, all from Very.co.uk. Cathy hand knitted cardigans for my niece and daughter, they were red with little ivory rose buds on.

My dress was lace from Phase 8. My mum added a sash around the middle and Cathy altered the length for me. The men hired the suits from Moss brothers, that was a little more complicated however they all looked great and the price was reasonable.
My photo's were amazing and done by my lovely little sister Mercedes, you can find her at http://mercedescurnowphotography.blogspot.com

Now the honeymoon is over we are expecting our latest and last addition to our family in May next year.
