It was 2004 and both Mel and Ste where out with their own friends at Wigan's favourite club night, Liquid Wednesday, £20 all you can drink!
Ste spotted Mel across the bar and went over to order her a drink. They got chatting and it wasn't long before Ste’s charms had won over Mel, this literately was ‘Love at first sight’.
November 2012, whilst on a camping trip in Australia. Ste got down on 1 knee with a bottle of 2004 Vintage Moet and armed with the ring, Ste asked Mel if she would do him the honours by becoming his wife.
Mel and Ste held their wedding ceremony at St Paul's church, Skelmersdale, Nr Wigan at 12 noon on Saturday 5th July 2014. They then went over to West Tower, Aughton in Lancashire for their wedding reception. My friend and fellow wedding professional, Matthew Fearon provide his unique entertainment during the drinks reception.
The wedding breakfast was as per usual fabulous, produced by the very talented West Tower Head Chef, Tom Stephenson and his team. Lawson Photography took the photographs, whilst Katy and Gary Byrne from Princess for a day provided the chair covers. The talented Laurie Spencer from Flowerstyle did a truley amazing job with the flowers. Myself, Steve Mitchell did the evening wedding celebration and what a party it was, an awesome evening. The short video clip above is at 8.30pm and the dance-floor remained that busy until my final wedding track at 12 midnight.
