The Beginning

“We met during a night out whilst at university.”

The Proposal

“During an anniversary trip to the Titanic Spa in Huddersfield.”


The Love

“I love that we are the best of friends and that we share the same love to have fun and spend our days laughing like we just met.”

The Dress

“I visited a number of shops before choosing ‘the one’. As soon as I walked into Knutsford Wedding Gallery the quality of the dresses was on a different level.  I fell in love with the feel of my dress and when I put it on it suited my shape perfectly. I knew I would be comfortable in my dress from the ceremony to the last dance. I wanted to be able to enjoy every minute of our day and I did!”

The Venue

“We chose the location because Cheshire is where I grew up and with Ben originally being from Switzerland meant the Airport was an easy distance for family who were traveling in for the wedding. We took Ben’s mum to view the venue and she walked in and burst into tears because she knew Ben’s dad would have loved it if he could have been there to see it. We didn’t need to look anywhere else after that.”

Yummy Details

“Our favours were personalised cookies. Our cake was a simple white 3 tier with roses and peonies to tie in with the wedding flowers and wedding style. We added a sparkle top tier to add a little something and had x 3 different flavours for each tier – vanilla salted caramel, Chocolate and Vanilla and Raspberry. to suit our differing tastes and ensure something for everyone.”

Trends & Themes

“We always knew we wanted a small wedding with a romantic laid-back feel. We didn’t want any harsh colour schemes or anything over the top to take away from the beauty of the venue and the reason why we first fell in love with the venue in the first place.”

“The bouquet was a mix of Ivory, blush and champagne avalanche roses. The bridesmaid bouquets were full head to head white hydrangeas.

We chose a long top table with assorted glass vases and floating candles interspersed with flowers to suit our romantic wedding feel. We then chose round tables filled with floating candles and glass votives filled with clusters of matching bridal flowers.”


Personal Touches

“I gave Ben a box of personalised items on the morning of the wedding and a new Tom Ford aftershave so we could always be reminded of the wedding day by the scent. I also surprised Ben with a cream land rover to take the groomsmen to the venue and a saxophonist came out to play our first dance.”

Bridal Advice

“Enjoy the planning and the day – it all goes so fast.”
