How did we meet

Plenty of fish dating app

What about your proposal, how did it go?

Haha, not very romantic, Carl asked me for a serious chat whilst on our balcony on holiday in Alcudia, August 2022. I didn’t see it coming but was over the moon when he popped the question.

Tell us about your venue?

Sandburn Hall in York. We attended a wedding there in 2018 & I fell in love with it then. When we went back in October 2022 I knew it was the venue I wanted to get married in. It was our first & only venue we viewed as I knew it was the one.

What was your wedding style/inspo?

I knew the colour scheme I wanted to go with & thought it was very fitting for Sandburn Hall. I knew I wanted sunflowers & roses as part of the styling & in the bouquets. Carl chose his suit which was also very fitting for Sandburn Hall. We just went with what we liked & thankfully it all paid off.

Tell us about your dress!

My wedding dress ended up being the complete opposite to what I thought I’d go for. Holly was amazing when I came in for my first appointment. She put me at ease & her knowledge on all the dresses was amazing! Both Holly & Kim have been fantastic at every appointment I had after saying Yes to the dress. Nothing was too much trouble for them. I felt a million dollars on my wedding day.

What was your favourite part of your wedding day?

Saying I do. The ceremony was great, the build up of nerves, tears (happy ones) & once I walked down to carl I felt relaxed. Even though we were in a room full of people it felt like it was just the two of us. The evening reception, everyone was in great spirits & danced the night away. The whole day was just amazing.

Any changes? (Things you wish you’d done or wish you hadn’t!)

No, we wouldn’t change anything & we want to do it all again!

Any tips for brides to be?

Be organised, get your suppliers booked in early as the good ones are in demand & will be snapped up quickly. Make lists, get yourself a wedding book to keep a check of everything & even make a spreadsheet to keep a track of costs. Enjoy the day & soak it all up cos it flies by!
