If you’re looking for a modern day Cinderella tale, then look no further than the gorgeous wedding day of model Vanessa Cheung to footballer Kyle Lafferty.
From Vanessa’s crystal encrusted Louboutin peep toes (with pairs in matching metallic for the ‘maids) to the bespoke wedding gown designed just for the bride, this wedding had glitz and glamour stamped all over it.
Jordana Events, renowned for her showstopping room decor and gorgeous florals, took this wedding to another level with a classy and elegant white theme, punctuated with sparkle.
Hear what the bride had to say about her special day, captured beautifully by Julie Lamont Photography…
“After our first date, Kyle gave me a bracelet that matched his – he is really romantic. For the proposal, he hired out a restaurant with a candlelit table for two and the whole floor covered in candles and rose petals. We had been together just over five months; we don’t like to waste time!
We had a few overnight stays at Gleneagles and loved it. We felt it would be perfect to have our wedding in such a beautiful venue.
After no luck trying on dresses in London and Liverpool, I went back to Eleganza Sposa in Glasgow, where Anna Cirignaco designed the dress of my dreams!
My sisters and nieces all stayed at my house the night before. We wore matching pyjamas and dressing gowns, pampered ourselves and drank Prosecco.
In the morning, I was first ready so Julie could spend time with me taking photographs. I then got photos with my family and we popped open a bottle of champagne.
We had a Christian ceremony with traditional vows. Walking down the aisle, I couldn’t stop smiling. When I saw Kyle at the top waiting, I couldn’t have felt happier.
Jordana Events were absolutely amazing. They transformed the venue into a fairytale – every detail was perfect!
Each of our cake’s six tiers were designed to be different and unique, including detailing to match my dress and our initials etched on. My flowers were white orchids with a crystal set in the middle of each flower.
This I Promise You by Ronan Keating appeared in my YouTube suggestion list – we played it and just knew. Ronan sent us a lovely message congratulating us, which we played on a big screen before our first dance.
We went on honeymoon about five weeks later because Kyle was playing in the Euros and left on the Monday after the wedding. My parents and one of my sisters came over to France with me to support the team.
We finally got our honeymoon and went to LA, Bora Bora and Las Vegas. It was so relaxing, and having Kyle all to myself for two weeks solid was complete bliss.
