Kim & Mac

Kim & Mac’s wedding was held at Harts Hotel, a stunning contemporary 4 star boutique hotel with stunning views over Nottingham.

Over to Kim to tell you all about her big day and her experience with Harts Hotel

“We got married at Harts Hotel, in our opinion, the best hotel and restaurant in our wonderful City of Nottingham.  We wanted an intimate, stylish wedding with amazing food and service and that is exactly what we got.

At the planning stage, we envisaged an elegant wedding with a big emphasis on quality and were looking to celebrate in an intimate way with our closest friends and family. We also wanted to ensure the day flowed comfortably for guests without any large gaps of waiting around time and Sally, the wedding planner at Harts, was always on hand to advise and to help ensure we achieved this.

We have three grown-up kids who played a full part in our day. Francesca, my daughter, was bridesmaid and Nathan & Jake, Mac’s sons, were his two best men. In addition, Nathan did two readings during the ceremony, Francesca sang acapella, ‘How do I’ by Leanne Rimes, after the ceremony and Jake played an acoustic guitar set and sang our first dance ‘Crying out Loud’, Ed Sheeran. Our nephew, Lukasz, was the super-cute pageboy!

We made full use of Harts’ beautiful garden which overlooks The Park and the City, with fizz and canapés to bridge the gap to the wedding breakfast. The talented magician Roy Bond enthralled and astounded our guests. We also enjoyed music from a New Orleans jazz trio, which included my dad, Harry, on double bass.

A three course wedding breakfast was served to guests, including Prosecco, quality wines, with coffee and chocolates to finish.  The food and service was amazing, there were so many compliments after the meal.  Harts provided us a comprehensive menu, enabling us to offer guests a choice of three starters, mains and desserts, together with a vegetarian option.

I’ve always loved a close-fitting, fishtail dress style.  As soon as I saw the dress I loved its beautiful lace, sequins and crystal sparkle. The style was high-fishtail which meant I enjoyed unrestricted movement during the day.  The White Wedding Lounge found me a matching lace bolero and their talented seamstress trimmed it with sparkles to compliment my dress. My daughter, Francesca, is a bridal make-up artist and she did my make-up on the day. Hairdresser Kelly Beedham came to Harts and did a great job with my hair, finishing the style with fresh orchids.  I chose simple jewellery and a killer pair of heels to finish the look!

It’s really important to decide as a couple what the important things about the day are for you and it helps to keep reminding yourself of those things as the pressure mounts!  For us, an intimate wedding was key so that really helped us keep our guest list trim and prioritise what was important to us.”
