Julie and Ashley got on the 20th of June 2013 at Silchester house, Berkshire.
We chose the venue because we fell in love with it before we even walked through the door; it is set in such in such beautiful surroundings and is just a stunning house that we felt so comfortable in right away.
I fell in love with the dress straight away, it was the first one I tried on, the lady in the shop picked it out and she was spot on, although I was very lucky and managed to find mine second hand as it was quite expensive. It was from the Tom Flowers range and called ‘Beth’. My veil was the one my Mum worse 31 years ago at her wedding – so it also doubled up as my ‘something old!’
My flowers were actually faux - they looked amazing and so real. I got them from a Facebook business called ‘Flowers by Sara’ it was a wonderful experience and I was so happy with the results.
The bridesmaid dresses were brought from house of Fraser. I spent ages trying to pick the perfect colour for my girls; I wanted purple but I couldn’t find a colour that really made me smile.
