The Wedding Party

Katie - The beauty

Coming soon

Chris - The Geek

Neil - Bestman

Chris’ younger brother. Neil is going to be desperately missed on the day due to taking part in a 33 week intensive RAF Officer training to further his RAF career. We wish him all the very best and will send him many, many pictures!

Mikey - Bestman

Mikey and Chris have been friends since toddler years. A close friend of the family, he'll be sure to provide plenty of embarrasment for Chris in the bestmand speech!


Natalie and Katie have been friends for quite a few years now. Katie is godmother to Nat’s son Dexter. They are both renowned for falling asleep at parties, singing badly and dancing madly along with the Wii console.


Debs is Katie’s friend from past days of pulling pints at the Bourne Poacher. Towards the end of many shifts they’d be running around in their heels collecting the last few beer glasses, in between topping up make-up and getting the hair straightners out ready to hit the town.


Katie and Michelle went to high school together way back when. They spent numerous nights at the delectable establishment that was the Broadway in Fleetwood followed by the very classy night club - Planters!

Holly - Flowergirl

Daughter of Joanne and Paul (Katie’s older brother and fianc┼Ż). Holly is a cheeky, intelligent little monkey and is going to be helping Auntie Katie by looking after the little ones in the bridal party.

Hannah - Flowergirl

The oldest daughter of Neil and Vicky (Chris’ brother & sister in law). Hannah is a little cherub and will be making her daddy proud on the day as he unfortunately isn’t able to attend.

Dexter - Pageboy

Son of Adam and Natalie. Dex is an absolute gem but don’t let his initial shyness fool you! His favourite thing to play with at Katie and Chris’ house is the A-Team van which actually belongs to Chris!
