Straight Out Of A Romantic Fairytale Wedding
Once upon a time in January 2009, two people met through mutual friends and a romance developed. And then one day Andrew proposed marriage to Vanessa at sunset on the shores of St. Lucia—and she knew her fairytale prince was here!
The couple couldn’t wait to plan their wedding. Vanessa, who had long held a vision of her ideal wedding, selected an enchanted fairytale ballroom theme. “We asked the harpist to play our favourite Disney tunes during the ceremony and cocktail hour,” said the dreamy-eyed bride. “And I felt like a real princess in my Cinderella-inspired wedding dress.” Their first dance was a coordinated ballroom waltz/rumba dance to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” replicating the ballroom dance in the song’s music video. The bride made sure that everything from the invitations to the Cinderella wedding cake had a touch of fairytale magic. “The table centrepieces had Beauty and the Beast candelabras and each table number had a Disney quote,” Vanessa said.
“And, of course, our honeymoon simply had to include a visit to Disneyland!”
