A Nice Day for a White Wedding

Hey pipsqueaks
So following on from my previous post...once I had had my pearly whites shined at the dentists and my bouffant fluffed at the hairdressers, it was time to jump in the jalopy, little brother in tow, ladened with Red Bull, and begin our road trip up 'Norf' to attend my cousin's wedding on the Friday.
The wedding was in Chester and the reception was in Northop, just a hop, skip and a jump over the Welsh border.
This Essex gal had never been to this area of the UK before, but I have to say that I thought Chester was a gorgeous, vibrant and intriguing city and was worth the four hour trek up there, and the reception venue, Soughton Hall in Northop was simply breathtaking. 
The weather on the day was just glorious, which was blooming lucky as a long dress and puddles would not have equated to a happy Milly.
Soughton Hall was spellbinding...it was like something out of a Jane Austen novel with its picturesque sweeping drive, enchanting landscape and manicured gardens. 

And so a Wedding OOTD for you all...
♥ Dress - Debenhams (about 5 years ago!)
♥ Gold sandals - Accessorize
♥ Twisted gold arm bangle - Accessorize
♥ Clutch - erm....Accessorize! :)
♥ Butterfly bracelet - Miss Selfridge
♥ Antique-esque earrings - H&M

THE MUG




I didn't want to get too slap-happy with my makeup as it was going to be a long day, and I didn't fancy looking like a grease ball as I hot-footed it onto the dance floor!
So I used...


♥ MAC Studio Fix Fluid NC30


♥ Benefit Erase Paste No.2
♥ MAC MSF Natural in Medium+
♥ Benefit Dallas to bronzed and contour
♥ Benefit Coralista on the apples of my cheeks
♥ MAC Rubenesque paint pot
♥ Covergirl Lashblast Mascara
♥ Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Zero
♥ Lips - MAC Myth with MAC Viva Glam Gage dabbed over the top

BEEHIVE BARNET



For my hair, I just pinned it back randomly with kirby grips and created a bit of a beehive on top. Unfortunately these photos were taken at the end of the night so the hair is not looking so hot!

And now for some cheeky snaps from the splendid day...
The beautiful couple



My mother, her exquisite dress and wonderful man




Pretty petals in Chester

Time for a toast




Roses and sparkles makes for a perfect bouquet




Champers and chatter




Personalised love hearts :)




Mmmmmm..







I just love a good wedding! :)
