Many years ago, we played badminton together, but didn’t get together till 2003 in Venice.
I’m 41and he’s 46.
He proposed at my house on one knee, with a bunch of red roses and a home cooked meal.
I didn’t give him an answer there and then, but at a cabaret club on New Years Eve. I had it announced by the DJ in front of 200 people!
Yes, we all went to the Grange Hotel in Thornton Hough on the Wirral
In so many ways I could not list them all.
It had so much information which gave us great choice
Yes, I bought online.
I bought my wedding dress in Chester.
My three bridesmaids wore long lavender colour dresses with small trains. The two flowergirls wore cream and carried baskets of confetti.
Larry Adams tailors in West Kirby were brilliant. The suits looked great. They wore cravats and tails, they looked so handsome
We had a religious ceremony in a small church in Thurstaston.
St Bartholomew’s in Thurstaston, Wirral.
The Kinglands Cabaret club in Birkenhead and they made us all feel so special.
We had a Horse and carriage and a full stretch Limo.
We had 200 plus.
We had a traditional and old fashioned.
We had candles on mirror tiles with star nuggets around them. There were star confetti on the tables, star cameras and favour boxes and silver garlands of stars twisted in glasses on the table.
Little bells on a card that said "ring if you want a kiss" almonds.
It was a friend of a friend. My bouquet was wonderful plum with white carnations and roses.
The venue handled the catering, which was a buffet hot meal with meat and salmon.
The wedding cake was a replica of our church we got in married in.
We had a Scottish piper at the church and live band and disco for the evening
With Marks & Spencers.
We spent first night in the Village Hotel, Bromborough then flew to Thailand. We booked with Travel world in West Kirby, Wirral
There are so many!
The photographer let us down a week before the wedding.
Try to remember that it’s your wedding, not everyone else’s. Try and take time out to enjoy the day as time will fly by.
