Dan and I met via Tinder, and for me it was the classic case of “if this guy isn’t the one then I’m giving up”. Sure enough he was the one – it just felt natural and as if I’d known him for years. We went to Iceland in 2017 and I was certain he would propose on the trip, but he didn’t! Over a year later in November 2018 he popped the question in Copenhagen in the Tivoli Gardens. He must have been nervous as he got down onto one knee by the river under a lovely arch, but was stood back up before he even finished asking the question!
“I chose my wedding gown the day I found out I was pregnant! I had been putting off dress shopping just in case I did fall pregnant and would then have to consider breast feeding and any weight gain. However, after a visit to Victoria Robson Bridal with my mum, I knew it was the one for me immediately so I ordered it anyway.“
“The Fig House at Middleton Lodge was just perfect. We loved the exposed brick walls and the gorgeous light from the arched widows looking out into the gardens.
The venue was so romantic and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. They were clearly very passionate and precise about what they did. They were so efficient and discreet, I felt like they weren’t even there.
The whole Middleton Lodge team were always smiling and mixed in with our guests so well. I know everyone probably says this but every team member was truly amazing.”
“Michael from CARRO Studio is a friend of a family member, and after meeting his at his studio and looking over his previous work we were certain we would book with them.
I loved how Michael just blended in on the day. He captured everything we asked him to and nothing was too much trouble for him.
The one thing I really regret is not opting for the video package that Michael offers. We absolutely love the wedding photos, but really wish we could watch the day in video too.”
Details & Styling
“We had a neutral theme, with creams and sage green, which matched perfectly with the venue and my dress. We booked Jean from Elise Wedding Flowers and simply advised her of the colour scheme and trusted her amazing floral talent to design our flowers. As you can see the flowers were absolutely gorgeous. Jean also decorated our wedding arch.”
“Try not to be a bridezilla! If you stay relaxed and happy it will be a much more enjoyable day. So many people commented on how laid back I was on the day so that was nice too.”
