We met working in a local pub about seven years ago. We became friends and we both knew straight away we were meant to be together. We went on a date and never looked back since. I’ve never been this happy. Didn’t think it could quite be true.
I’m 29 and my hubby is 27.
We had been going out for three months and Dave had scattered flowers all over the house with candles lit everywhere. He had made me a lovely meal and then afterwards he just asked really.
Yes we did my hubby went out for few drinks and I went out for a meal and few drinks.
He didn’t really. He just agreed with everything I said mostly.
Yes gave me lots of ideas.
I wore a Alan Hannah dress called Seville made of duchess satin in ivory. It was a two piece, A-line skirt with train and bodice with beading.
Yes the children wore ivory dresses with net/petticoat skirts with rose petals on and the adults wore Dessy pink 3/4 length, 50`s style dresses.
He chose a very close and dear friend who we have both known for years and has known us since we first got together. The usher was Dave’s brother.
Albright Hussey Manor, Shrewsbury.
Yes, a vintage Rolls Royce which was cream and lovely.
36 to the day as that`s all we could fit in the room and 80 to the evening.
Yes we had pink and ivory as a colour theme and also butterflies as our cat could not be there which is most loved by the both of us and he absolutely loves chasing them so it was to remind us of him.
We had potted plants with pink butterfly pots and butterflies wired to the side, butterfly wired to sides of goldfish bowls, butterfly stationery and for favours we gave out butterfly flower seeds. I wore a butterfly bracelet and brooch and put blue butterfly stickers in my shoes for something blue. The bridesmaid wore butterfly wings and had butterflies on their shoes and cardigans. We also put butterflies within the flowers.
Yes, butterfly flower seeds.
We had goldfish bowls with glass beads filled with a little water and pink peonies with floating candles. Button holes were grape hyathiniths and potted plants too. My bouquet was pink peonies.
We had broccoli and stilton soup, turkey with trimmings and apple crumble.
My aunty made our wedding cake. Three tiered with flowers to the side and flowers sticking out of the top with grass and three ivory butterflies flying out the top too.
We just had a disco in the evening.
Yes at Debenhams.
We stopped in the hotel we had the reception.
No, not really. Had problems with the bridesmaids and trying to please everyone really.
Yeah, I would of had different bridesmaids. You certainly find out who your friends are planning a wedding. Would have changed my hair dresser as she made such a mess of my hair – not what I wanted at all and probably would have got married at Rowton Castle so we could of stopped the night before and just be in one place for the whole day.
