Happy Friday! This week’s Real Wedding comes from Jeannie and Peter who teamed up with our new friends Best Wedding Away to create one of the most stunning lake side wedding we’ve seen in a long time. Our lucky couple said ‘I do’ at the stunning Malcesine castle in Italy and wowed their guests with picturesque views and an unforgettable boat trip. Don’t believe me? Have a look for yourself!
Bride and Groom… Jeannie and Peter
Wedding date… Monday 26th August 2013
We met… In Cyprus at a friend’s wedding.
The proposal… Peter planned to propose in a hot air balloon, but it got cancelled due to the typical English weather. Luckily we were going to Cape Verde a week later and he proposed there.
We knew it was ‘the one’… Jeannie, “sounds cheesy but I never thought he wasn’t the one!”
Peter, “I think I knew pretty much straight away, from our first date.”
Length of engagement… 22 months
My dress was… An Ian Stuart gown. I visited a lot of wedding shops, which made me realise I liked so many different things from each dress and the thought of getting one made and getting it right was scary. Bellissima wedding shop was amazing. Kay and Doris helped me to get the perfect wedding dress. I wanted a lace dress with a low back and a halter neck. The original Ian Stuart dress was adjusted with Doris’s skills to create my perfect dress.
Our groomsmen were… Pete’s best friend Lee and Pete’s brothers Gary and Tony. We also had 2 Ushers Ray and Scott.
