It’s Tuesday morning and I’m the only one awake! The birds are tweeting their morning tunes like a compact audience of X-Factor wannabes and I’m up, alone, for the first time in years! Seriously! I am an Owl and cannot go to bed before 11pm every night so since having my baby girl, getting up early has not been my strong point.
This morning, the peace is comforting: I’m sipping my morning Earl and contemplating what the weather will be like but since I’m taking Boo Bear swimming, I don’t really mind though. For some reason this peace and quiet seems so profound, I have no idea why, maybe it’s just because I haven’t greeted a quiet morning for so long, but I like it.
And in my loud quiet, I have just been scrolling through the photos of Kirsty & Tim’s wedding again by Andy Pickard of Peacock
Today’s real wedding is an Allstar packed alternative (non-traditional – that word I love) wedding loaded with specially died roses, fur capes and lots of purple! Andy has captured the romance between this Bride & Groom beautifully: the photos make you want to fall in love again – or for us who are already in love – go and surprise our partners with a kiss.
An Allstar real wedding
So, on with the show…

Love the old tie-ups!!! 🙂 Beautiful, feminine shot!
The composition of this shot is stunning. The white background, the bouquet on the left – ahhh, just darn good photography!!!
When Kirsty & Tim set their wedding date for late February they were hoping for snow but instead had a crisp clear & cold day with snowdrops in the churchyard . Tim a Farrier and Kirsty a kick boxing instructor; chose a mix of traditional, unconventional & handcrafted elements for their big day. Kirsty is a converse kinda girl and they had a horse shoe and star motif running through the wedding encompassing purple Chuck Taylor Allstars & horseshoe place settings lovingly forged by the groom.
The bride wore an ultra modern silver strapless sheath gown with her Converse, her mother’s pearls & carried a hand tied posy featuring specially dyed roses. The fur capes & wraps that helped bride & her maids keep out the cold were made by Kirsty’s mum & fastened with diamante star pins. After an emotional marriage service at their local church where Tim’s, Grandad was the best man, the couple enjoyed the comfort & hospitality of the Newton Park Hotel which was transformed into a candlelight wonderland as dusk fell.
