Bride and Groom… Claire and David
Wedding date… Friday 9th August 2013
We met… On a surfing trip to the North Coast of County Antrim.
The proposal… We needed to get an ID tag for our new puppy so David got one engraved with ‘Marry Me’. On Christmas morning David brought the puppy into the bedroom. While I looked at the dog tag David got down on one knee and popped the question!
We knew it was “the one”… Probably about 5 years ago when we got our dog. At that point we knew we were for forever!
Length of engagement… 7.5 months
How did Confetti.co.uk help in your big day? I found the articles really helpful. I also enjoyed reading through the ‘real weddings’ section for inspiration.
My dress was… Linea Raffaelli from Katriona in Banbridge. I had seen the dress I originally wanted in a bridal magazine, I looked up the bridal shop that was selling it and made an appointment. When we arrived I showed the sales girl the dress I had come to try on, but she also picked out a few other dresses. The first one she held out I didn’t even want to try it on, but she somehow convinced me to do so and as soon as I looked in the mirror I fell in love with it. I later tried on the dress I had originally seen in the magazine and it looked awful on me. The sales girls really know what suits you! I paid my deposit that day and didn’t look at any other dresses. My mum and two bridesmaids came with me and we all ended up having a little cry when they saw me in it.
