My proposal story

Matt booked a surprise weekend away in Coniston and proposed on a jetty over the lake.

Wedding style

We got married just after Christmas in a castle. It was a fairytale wedding!

Shopping experience

Shopping for my wedding dress was perfect! I loved every second of it. I want to do it again!!

How did you choose 'The One'?

I loved so many dresses but the one I choose was just perfect!

Tell us about your experience at Emma Louise Bridal

Emma Louise Bridal is a gorgeous shop with so many beautiful dresses. Everyone is so lovely! I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a dress.

What are your favourite memories from your wedding day?

Every moment was just perfect!

If you have a honeymoon planned - where are you going?

We went on a minimoon straight after the wedding to Titanic Spa and then to York which was so relaxing. We were supposed to be going to Mauritius yesterday but this has obviously been cancelled. We will hopefully have our dream honeymoon one day!

Do you have any advise for other couples planning their wedding?

We got engaged in February and got married in December! I’m so glad we didn’t wait any longer, it was the perfect amount of time.
