FROM NATOSHA: Our wed­ding colours were vi­o­let and blue. I wanted bright colours, and pea­cocks were my in­spi­ra­tion. I re­ally love the jewel tones found in their feath­ers, plus they roam around the grounds of our venue, Hat­ley Cas­tle, so I think it fit quite well. The fl ow­ers were so beau­ti­ful and aro­matic, I could not stop sniff­ing my bou­quet. Lynda Marie man­aged to give me the last three pe­onies of the sea­son for my bou­quet, and it was so gor­geous—there was so much tex­ture. The cen­tre­pieces were also so fra­grant; the en­tire room smelled like a flower gar­den. One of the most spe­cial mo­ments was our fi rst dance. My brother-in-law is study­ing mu­sic ther­apy and of­fered to per­form our first-dance song. He prac­tised end­lessly for the last few weeks lead­ing up to the wed­ding—that meant a lot to us. Our fam­ily did so many mean­ing­ful things for our day. My sis­ter-in-law de­liv­ered the toast to the bride. Since Bryant and I had been to­gether for 13 years, she pretty much grew up with me in her life. She de­scribed how she never wanted a sis­ter, be­cause tech­ni­cally she al­ready had one. It brought tears to my eyes!
