Beautiful Bride Emma says of the couples Country House wedding day…

 

How did you meet?

We met at work, we were both working part time at Sports Direct during our final year at university. I had to train him on the till, the rest is history.

Tell us about the Engagement…

We’d talked about getting married for a while but I left it to Dan to decide but he proposed on 18th December 2019.

He took me to Costa on my lunch break and gave me a box to open while we were in the car.

As I was opening the box he decided to eat a pork pie as he was hungry, but he didn’t realise I would open it so quickly. ]

I pulled out the ring and waited for him to ask, which he did with a mouth full of pork pie.

Not the most romantic but definitely memorable!

Tell us about your wedding planning journey…

We planned most of our wedding during the pandemic so it was a very stressful time.

Luckily we didn’t have to change our date because the restrictions eased just in time for us to go ahead with the full day.

However there was so much uncertainty throughout the whole 18 months and we did have things go wrong with certain suppliers in the lead up to the big day, but we tried to have a back-up plan for most things, just in case.

We didn’t get to go to many wedding fairs or have a proper hen/stag do (for example) but there were a lot of enjoyable aspects.

We spent a lot of time deciding together on the music, which was really fun to do, and I loved going dress shopping with my bridesmaids, even if we did have to wear masks.

Because of the pandemic, a lot of the smaller problems that tend to occur didn’t seem that bad because we’d gone through the worst already.

It definitely made us a lot more easy going with things.

What was the theme / colour palette of your Big Day?

We chose dark/emerald green and white. I really loved the floral/foliage style and how emerald green and white looked together.

Dark green is Dan’s favourite colour and it goes really well with my hair as I’m a redhead so I knew pretty much straight away what theme to have.

I did manage to persuade Dan to let me have my Doctor Who figurines on the tables as well, as I’m a big Doctor Who fan.

I thought having them subtle throughout the decoration worked really well as all our guests noticed and thought they were really cute.

What was the best bit of your day?

I really struggle to choose a specific part because the whole day was absolutely amazing.

The best feeling I had was after we walked out of the ceremony room, into the courtyard area, and we were handed a drink by the venue staff.

I looked at Dan and smiled because we’d done it, we were finally married and it felt amazing.

What advice would you give to other couples getting married?

Shop around and stick to your agreed budget. I got my dress from a retailer that supplies designer dresses that are off the rack, so they are a lot cheaper than bridal shops.

I got a lot of things from Etsy and Ebay, as well as using Facebook Marketplace for decorations.

If you’re going to splurge on anything, make sure it’s on your photographer and venue.

Once the wedding is over, your photos are the only thing you’ll have to remember the day, so hire a talented photographer who is easy to work with and who’s shooting style you like.

With your venue, see if they do packages that include decorations, food, entertainment and/or a cake. This saves so much time and money if it’s included in your venue fee, and normally you can pay a little extra to change things to suit your style without breaking the bank.

Above all else, make sure the day is about you and your partner. Unless you have someone else paying for the wedding, this is your special day so don’t try to please everyone or have things that you don’t like for the sake of your guests.
