A RING cushion made from family wedding dresses and christening gowns was given pride of place at the wedding of Stuart Saxon and Katie Dannatt, who were married at Northbrook Park, Farnham, Surrey.
The bridegroom, an IT recruitment manager, is the son of Mr Kenneth Saxon, of Glasgow, Scotland, and Ms Eileen Ryder, of Guildford, Surrey.
The bride, a contributing fashion assistant at Marie Claire magazine, is the daughter of Mr and Mrs Kevin Dannatt, of St Boniface Cliff Road, Shanklin.
The bridge wore an ivory silk tulle gown and her mother’s veil, and carried a bouquet of pale pink and cream peonies and antique roses.
She was attended by Adrienne Wroath, Georgina Randall, Nancy Borratt — who played the violin during the ceremony — and Mia Dannatt, 11 (bride’s cousin), who wore knee-length pleated skirt dresses in dusty pink chiffon and carried smaller versions of the bride’s bouquet.
She was also attended by flower girls Jennifer, five, and Emily Dannatt, three (bride’s cousins), who wore cream tulle dresses and carried bouquets of pink hydrangeas.
The best man was John Gavey and the ushers were Richard Croaker, Nick Berry and Ricky Lowther. Registrar Eric Bather officiated.
Following a reception, also at Northbrook Park, the couple honeymooned in the Maldives.
They will live in Epsom, Surrey.
