31st January 2014 |By | 1 Comment

Just want to thank Finesse Photography for giving us the opportunity to share Amy and David’s beautiful Real Wedding! And what a wedding it is! Amy’s Maggie Sottero dress is absolutely stunning with its delicate pearl and lace detail; you’ll also fall in love with the gorgeous Alfred Angelo bridesmaid dresses, the striking martini centrepieces and of course the happy couple themselves, with their beaming smiles and love for each other you can’t help but love them.

The Happy Couple

Bride and Groom… Amy & David

Wedding date… Friday 12th July 2013

We met… Back when we worked together on the same team.

The proposal… David proposed on the weekend of the Queens Jubilee, which was 2nd June 2012. He had picked a spot on the edge of Lake Windermere whilst visiting the Lake District.

We knew it was ‘the one’… When we went on holiday together to Tenerife.

Length of engagement… 13 Months

How did Confetti.co.uk help in your big day? My bridesmaids used Confetti to help them plan my hen party.

My dress was… a Maggie Sottero gown and the veil was by Joyce, I bought them from Bliss Bridal Centre in Bolton. The dress was strapless and had a lace up back, patterned with pearls and diamantes with a Swarovski crystal belt. I went shopping with my sister, mother and mother in law and knew as the dress was being fastened that it was the perfect.  My sister and I got emotional when I came out from behind the curtain as we both knew it was the one!

Our first dance was… The wonder of you by Elvis Presley

Our favourite part of the wedding was… Taking a drive in the car with a glass of champagne immediately after the ceremony. It was just the two of us and gave us a chance to take in the day. The weather was also perfect, it was one of the hottest days of the year; the sun shining really made our day.

Our wedding was unique and special because…  We had live music all day. A string quartet during the day and a band at night and even though this was more costly it was something we always wanted. We also bought a cask of Ale brewed locally in Bolton for our guests to enjoy.

For our honeymoon… We stayed at the 9 Muses hotel in Skala, Kefalonia. It is a stunning island and a beautiful hotel and we would highly recommend it.

What is your advice for other brides? Start early and get organised. We were really organised and everything flowed so smoothly towards the last few weeks. Don’t keep changing your mind, once you pick something stick with it. Know your budget and plan what you want around it; also have live music as opposed to CD’s or a DJ
