Alex & Mike’s Magazine Story:
Alexandra Dyson married Michael McNally at Knowsley Hall on 23rd April, 2016. Their day followed a neutral colour palette, and was captured by www.matthewrycraft.co.uk
“I wanted to incorporate a slight Parisian theme as Mike proposed to me under the Eiffel Tower,” says Alex. “We had small bronze Eiffel Towers on the tables and frames which held my favourite quotes about love. Also, as we love macaroons, each guest had raspberry and white chocolate ones as favours.
“For flowers, we had roses and peonies as I wanted a classic but vintage feel. On my bouquet I had two small pictures, one of Mike’s dad and also my nan, as they’d passed away.”
“My favourite memory was when we were pronounced as husband and wife,” says Alex. “Mike held me, dipped me back and kissed me – just like the movies! The priest was funny and thoughtful, making little comments like ‘you’ll never walk alone’ in reference to Mike being a massive Liverpool fan. He surprised us by playing the Harry Potter theme tune on the organ and talking about the magic of marriage – the priest knew I loved the books. All our guests commented on how fantastic the service was!”
