Your Kent Wedding - Page number 46 - May/Jun 2021 (Issue 96)

Due to restrictions, we were limited in what we could do for an evening reception, but we had 26 guests and we all had a great time. We just wanted to get married. In the end we didn’t care about having the big party with 140 guests, we just wanted to be husband and wife. We had the best day with the most important people there and we wouldn’t change a thing We’d originally booked a honeymoon stay at Walt Disney World Florida for two weeks, but the pandemic had different plans. Instead, we went to Rhodes, Greece, and stayed in a beautiful hotel for 10 nights.

The place names were small wooden plaques engraved with our guests’ names. Having our pictures taken outside the castle in the dark with nobody else around was so surreal! “The highlight for me was seeing Lauren walking down the aisle, and it was great to be able to celebrate with our closest friends and family around us.” – Dexter “Concentrate on what you both like. It’s your day and you don’t need to please anyone else.” 46
