We met over 5 years ago when I booked a holiday in the travel agents Nicky worked in. We then met later that night in a local club.
He proposed Xmas Day, but was hung-over and could hardly speak! Not romantic at all!
I went to Brighton for the weekend and did karting and went to bars in the evening. I also had a local hen night.
Nicky went to Southampton with 20 friends and they did paintball, karting & clubbing!
He helped pick the flowers, the first dance and ceremony music.
Yes, I spent a lot of time on the message boards getting lots of advice!
Yes, sweets for the favours and a few presents, all ordered online.
My dress was by Dzage. It was a 2-piece and very simple which I loved.
Yes, I had my four sisters. Kelly and Lisa wore scarlet 2-piece dresses which I got in Debenhams in the sale for £25 each! Toni and Jodie had ivory dresses.
His two brothers John & Billy. His ushers were James & Jamie and his brother-in-law Leighton.
Stock Brook Country Club, Queens Park Avenue, Stock.
My uncle drove my mum, dad & me in his Jag.
116 to the day and another 20 in the evening.
Yes we had scarlet & red. In the evening we had pumpkins as it was the day before Halloween!
The table linen was ivory, the favours were scarlet & ivory and so were the flowers.
Yes, the ladies had chocolates and love heart sweets. The men had chocolate footballs and love heart sweets and we had personalised gift bags made for the children. These had chocolate and toys in.
My bouquet was made up of red & ivory roses and lilies. The lilies were so I could remember my nan on the day as her name was Lilly. The bridesmaids in red had ivory roses and the ones in ivory had red roses.
Potato & leek soup, chicken chasseur & profiteroles. I’m vegetarian and picked cheese & onion potato tart for the veggies. We also had an evening buffet and our guests still keep telling me how nice it was! The catering was all done by Stock Brook.
Our cake was made by Janet Brewer. The bottom tier was vanilla sponge, the middle tier chocolate sponge & the top was lemon.
DJ in the evening.
No, as we have been living together for a few years. People gave us money.
The Ivy Hill hotel for our first night. We went to my uncle’s villa in Portugal for 10 days.
I have a few!
My friend did a reading in the ceremony and we both started laughing and couldn’t stop!
The DJ played ‘I’m forever Blowing Bubbles’ as I support West Ham. We had half the room singing and dancing and the other half booing us!
Of course being pronounced husband & wife!
No, the only problem on the day was the photographer didn’t take all the photos I asked for.
No, we loved the day. Just enjoy every moment of it!
