We love the soft hues and delicate details in this gorgeous spring wedding. Heather shares her story…
How did Anthony propose?
“He proposed in Australia! We were travelling down the East Coast in a campervan, starting in Sydney. We stopped off at a campsite on the beach, and at sunset he gave me a book filled with all our memories, and at the end it read: ‘I bet you think this is a perfect setting for the perfect question?’ I turned the page and read: ‘Only joking!’. Then the last page read: ‘Maybe you should turn around…’ and he was down on one knee!”
What dress did you wear?
“In my mind I wanted a lace, sleeved, fitted dress, but when I tried on this style it just didn’t suit me. The final dress was just perfect – strapless with loads of layers and lace by Pronovias. I said yes to the dress at Dotty Bridal in Holmfirth. They’re an amazing shop, they made my experience so special.”
And the accessories?
“I bought a veil from Dotty Bridal and wore a Tiffany bracelet and necklace.”
What did Anthony wear?
“Anthony wore an ASOS suit with a Next shirt and dickie bow ties from Slater’s.”
How did you feel when you saw him up the aisle?
“When I walked down the aisle and saw my husband-to-be, it was a mix of emotions! I was thinking I’m now not going to be a Jones anymore, and I’ve had that name for so long, it’s rather emotional with your dad walking you down the aisle. But on the other hand I was so excited to marry not only the man of my dreams but my best friend. I was very emotional and couldn’t believe how lucky I was when I saw him in his suit looking so dapper, and the smile on his face said it all.”
Who were your bridesmaids and where were their dresses from?
“I had six bridesmaids – my sister Hazel, best friend Jade, sister-in-law Laurinda, and cousins Rachel, Lorna and Hayley. They wore dusky pink dresses from TFNC.”
What was your theme?
“The venue is incredible so it doesn’t need too much decoration. I wanted a rustic feel – simple but effective.”
What was the highlight of the day?
“My highlights included getting ready in the morning at my mum’s with all of my bridesmaids, and seeing my dad driving us all to the church in his VW Campervan. He was a very excited big kid!”
