Ashleigh and Sam were married in June this year at The Manor Hotel.
I asked Ashleigh all about the proposal…
“We went to Birmingham in between Christmas and New Year for a few drinks and a stay over at The Edgbaston Boutique Hotel. When we got to the hotel there was flower petals and champagne waiting and he got down on one knee. It was perfect.”
Where did you meet?
“At our local pub- he walked past me multiple times before he finally came to speak to me.”
How did you feel on your big day?:
“I felt amazing (and very hot- it was 34 degrees!)”
What is your special memory of the day?:
“Driving to our reception venue from the church, with the roof down in our wedding car, with my new husband- I was on cloud 9”
Any advice you would give to future brides-to-be?:
“Don’t stress. If anything goes wrong nobody will know!”
Tell us about your Dress Me Pretty experience and finding your dress:
“Had the most amazing experience at Dress Me Pretty. I had been to a number of bridal shops and always left disheartened. I’d not long given birth so found I didn’t feel too comfortable in any dresses. My experience at Dress Me Pretty was the complete opposite, Jodie was fantastic and picked out a number of dresses for me, along with dresses I picked with the help of my mum. I felt so comfortable from the moment I walked in and Jodie and Amy really do make you feel incredible.”
