Wedding – Bette & Maxwell

Bette and Maxwell finally tied the knot after weeks of planning all came together for a perfect day.

Bette wore a traditional ‘Patricia Holt’ white scallop-tiered gown with a satin sash and white satin pumps.  She wore rhinestone earrings with matching bracelet and tiara.  Her bouquet consisted of ‘old gold’ roses, deep red roses and white rosebuds.

Matron of honour was Bette’s best friend Joan, who wore a gold dupioni silk suit with gold pumps and carried a posy of deep red roses.

There were six bridesmaids:

Gina, Natalia and Libby wore full length red silk essence dresses and carried posies of ‘old gold’ roses.

Sophie, Saffy and Kyra wore full length gold lame dresses and carried posies of deep red roses.

Maxwell wore a black suit teamed with a white shirt and red tie, and he wore a deep red rose in his lapel.   His best man was Russell and usher was Stefan and they both wore navy pin striped suits, with a deep red rose in their lapel.

The service was held at St. Luke’s church, Belgravia and was followed by a reception for 300 at The George Hotel, also Belgravia.

Bette and Maxwell stayed at the hotel overnight before leaving for their honeymoon in the Bahamas.

Wedding News

Bette and Max are getting married!!!  They have yet to set the date but Bette has been trying on dresses today, and invited me along to take photographs.  Larissa and Tamara were on hand to help out with the dress choices for Bette, and later to help with the selection of  bridesmaids dresses.  Initially the photographs were to be for Bette’s use only but she has agreed that I can share some of them. 

Three of her neices are confirmed as bridesmaids:  Gina, Sophie and Natalia, and there may be more.  No colour/theme has been decided upon yet so today was simply to get some idea’s of styles and fit etc.  I am so excited for them. 

Pictures will be available on:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/tonner_etc/

1950’s Theatre Trip

Bette is in London for a short spell and is staying in her Belgravia apartment for the duration of her trip.  Max is making the most of their free time and has arranged a trip to the theatre for Bette and a handful of their girlfriends.

Bette ready and waiting for Maxwell

They are expected to dine at one of Wimbledon’s most prestigious restaurants following the show, and security will be tight based on the current unrest in the capital.

It is understood that some of their guests include:  Joan, Alex, Gene, Anna and Tess, and Max has stated that there may be more pictures available tomorrow, on the premise that they have some privacy this evening.

Max and Bette have spent some considerable time together over the last several months, but have still not made an official announcement of their commitment to each other, though some sources suggest that news of an engagement may be imminent.
