Weddings in Wales: Couple’s wedding day ‘full of love’


If you tied the knot like Charlotte and Antony, we'd love to share in your celebrations .

To take part, just fill in the simple form at the end of this story. And if you're from the South Wales Echo area, you will be featured in our newspaper, too.

It doesn't matter where you married, as long as one of you is Welsh or you live in Wales.


The couple

Antony Kerslake, 30, from Tonypandy, and Charlotte Kerslake (nee Dupplaw), 27, from Maesteg.Antony works for Edwards Coaches and Charlotte is studying to become a nurse.

The venue

The ceremony took place at City Hall, Cardiff, on October 21, before a wedding breakfast and reception at Canada Lodge and Lake

How they met

The couple met in May 2010, when they were both working for Bridgend Ford.

The proposal

Charlotte had been hinting to Antony about what engagement rings she liked, even sending pictures to his phone so he couldn’t get it wrong.

Antony then bought Charlotte a ring and proposed in her bedroom before going out for a meal on October 5, 2013.

Charlotte said: “Antony had planned to do it later on during the meal but could not hold in his excitement and burst out with the big question.”

Soon after, the couple travelled to Paris to clip a “love lock” on Pont Notre Dame.

The wedding

Charlotte said the morning of the wedding was “chaos”.

All of the women were trying to get ready using only two bathrooms, Antony got a flat tyre when starting his car to collect his father-in-law, while many of the day’s flowers were lost when being transported to the venue in an open-top convertible.

But after those brief setbacks, everyone arrived safely at the venue and Charlotte said the day was “perfect”.

She added: “The speeches at the wedding breakfast were very emotional and full of love, particularly from Antony’s stepfather Simon and my brother Ross. Food and drinks were flowing and the party atmosphere building for the evening party to begin.”

More guests then arrived to end the day on a high, and the couple’s first dance was to L-O-V-E by Nat King Cole.

She said Edwards Coaches and the staff at the Canada Lodge and Lake were “very kind” for everything they did for the couple on the day, and photographer Philip Warren was “so flexible” working closely with CF40 Hairdressers, following the girls around from early morning to late at night making sure he caught every moment.

Charlotte added: “We’d like to say thank you to everyone who attended the wedding and evening and those who helped us arrange it and make it so special.”

Duggar Family: Ready to Film Jinger's Wedding?!


For obvious reasons, the Duggar family's second TLC reality series has been surrounded by controversy.

The Duggars' first show, 19 Kids and Counting, was canceled in response to the Josh Duggar sex scandals, and many former fans were justifiably outraged that the network was so quick to give the disgraced family a second shot.

Declining ratings and bailing advertisers have led to talk of Counting On getting canceled, but for now at least, it looks like the network that made the family famous is still all-in on the Duggars.

Insiders say the Duggars are currently filming Counting On Season 3, and as predicted, it will reportedly feature an entire episode devoted to the Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo wedding.

In fact, it will likely feature several episodes that revolve around the upcoming nuptials.

As fans of the show know, producers basically got an entire season out of Jinger and Jeremy's courtship and engagement.

The proposal itself was teased for several weeks, and viewers got to see Jeremy pop the question only after a bizarre bait-and-switch clip show.

Jeremy and Jinger

So you can bet the folks behind Counting On are planning to get a lot of mileage out of Jinger and Jeremy's wedding, as well.

A leaked production schedule led to rumors that Jinger and Jeremy would get married over the weekend.

That didn't happen, but the family was spotted filming scenes at the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade.

The show generally takes place chronologically, so we suppose it's not surprising that the Jinger and Jeremy wedding isn't taking place right away.

It stands to reason that producers would want to film a few episodes about the build-up to the wedding, because as so many irritated fans pointed out over the course of Season 2, they really don't have much else to go on in terms of storylines.

Sure there's Jessa Duggars second pregnancy, but Duggar births are like Trump scandals:

It feels like there's one every week.

The importance of Jinger's relationship has led to some interesting accusations, as some fans believe Jinger and Jeremy are getting married for the ratings.

We doubt that's true, but the quickness with which they've rushed through the courtship process does seem to indicate they had some additional incentives.

Of course, given the fact that Duggar kids are prohibited from having any sort of premarital sexual contact, they might not need any additional incentive.

You can now buy Bella Swan’s ACTUAL wedding dress


When Bella Swan and Edward Cullen finally tied the knot, who didn’t swoon over that stunning forest wedding – and Bella’s incredible Carolina Herrera Twilight wedding dress.

We totally bought into the romance of it all and so did Kristen Stewart apparently, who previously spoke about how her onscreen marriage to Robert Pattinson felt like a ‘real wedding‘.

Twilight Wedding Dress

And with the amount of time, effort and money that was spent bringing it to life, it’s no surprise. The bespoke Carolina Herrera dress was reportedly valued at an eye-watering $35,000 and was paired with shoes by Manolo Blahnik. Pretty swanky, don’t you agree?

So when the news came out that you can now buy the Twilight wedding dress, we got pretty excited… although it wasn’t exactly the dress we had in mind. Because instead of the Carolina Herrera dress, it’s actually the one from Bella’s nightmare which is up for sale.

Up for sale in both the bloodied version (for those who are into the ombre look) and non-bloodied version (for the traditionalists out there), both dresses are sold with the veil and are both estimated to sell for between $1500 and $2000.

Both dresses are being sold as part of the Twilight Saga Auction, which will take place on 19th and 20th November 2016 and sell over 900 original pieces from the five film franchise, making it pretty much a Twi-hard gold mine.

As well as the Twilight wedding dress, there’s also the chance to snap up Bella Swan’s engagement ring – you know, the one which belonged to Edward’s mother? Yeah, that one. Listed as containing 69 cz diamonds in an oval pave setting, the ring is predicted to sell for between $3000 – $5000, making it one of the pricier lots in the listing.

Meanwhile, Team Jacob fans can buy the charm bracelet he gave Bella that featured a little wooden wolf he’d carved himself. Or some of those shorts he’s so fond of bursting out of, if that’s more your bag… #justsayin.
