This gorgeous couple enjoyed a magical country wedding in Spring. Bride
Sunny tells all…
How did Danny propose?
“It was our four-year anniversary and I had surprised Daniel with a stay at Crazybear in Beaconsfield (and blindfolded him all the way there in the car!). With help from my mum and sisters, Daniel actually hijacked my surprise and when we checked into our room, he had put champagne, roses, gifts and candles in there already! I found a note in the roses addressed to me and by the time I turned around, Daniel was on one knee with a ring in his hand!”
What dress did you wear?
“Cinzia gown by Watters, from London Bride Couture in London.”
And the accessories?
“Links bracelet from my bridesmaid, diamond earrings borrowed from my mum, little gems in my hair and a silk cathedral-length veil.”
What did Daniel wear?
“A tailored suit with a tailcoat and paisley silver waistcoat with cravat and a white rose as the buttonhole. The suits were hired from The Wedding Gallery in St Albans.”
How did you feel when you saw him up the aisle?
“I was on cloud nine! My dad was on my arm, tears in his eyes, and as I approached the aisle and Daniel turned around, he was crying, too! He looked so happy and so handsome. It was a very surreal and proud moment; such an amazing feeling to know everybody there was so happy for us and so excited to be with us on our special day, about to watch us marry.”
Who were your bridesmaids and what dresses did they wear?
“My two younger sisters, Daisy and Beau, and my best friend, Sophie. Their multi-way dresses were from Debenhams.”
What was your best buy?
“My dress! I also loved our little personalised silver confetti on the tables. The flip flops went down well, too – by the end of the night, most of the ladies were wearing them saving their sore feet so they could dance all night!”
What’s your saving tip?
“Keep a budget planner because weddings can soon become very expensive and when it is written down, it helps to control the spending. Also, accept help from friends and family. My sister made our cake, my mum put together all of our flowers, bouquets and buttonholes and my cousin made our order of service, menus and table plan. If you know anyone creative, ask them to help you with anything like this as their wedding gift, and it will save you £££s.”
