Well would you believe, today was our Western Gazette – Win a Wedding – day and the lucky couple

Karina and Mark were the bride and groom who received a host of prizes from wedding suppliers to give them the most fabulous wedding day and all for free – how lucky is that.

Mark & Karina invited approximately 100 guests to witness their wedding at The Shrubbery Hotel, Ilminster, Somerset.

The Shrubbery has been a hotel in Ilminster since 1932 and was awarded a Quality Award from Best Western in 2012. I have to say that the Shrubbery did a fabulous job and I love it’s new look.

Dress code for the day was formal with the groomsmen and Page Boy dressed in grey tails and matching waistcoats with pink accessories matching the colour theme for the day.

Karina asked her Sister Nicola and Sister in Law Sarah to be her Bridesmaids and her daughter Ffion to be her Flower Girl.

Karina wore a traditional full length white A line wedding dress with an empire waistline and strapless ‘v’ shaped neckline. A lace overlay formed a wide over-the-shoulder bodice and straps. The dress had a short puddle train and Karina decided not to wear a veil. The Bridesmaids wore full length pink dresses, which was strapped with a bateau neckline.

Mark asked his friends Matt and Paul to share the duties of Best Men and a great job they made of it as well.

The weather started out slightly overcast but as the day went on the sun came out but remained a little nippy.

Lovely day with two fabulous families and friends – hope everyone enjoyed this fabulous prize.
