Katie & Ryan’s Wedding

What a Wonderful Winter Wedding!


Katie and Ryan got married in December at Hothorpe Hall, a beautiful Georgian manor house in Northamptonshire. They met by chance on a night out in Nuneaton 8 years ago. The rest as they say, is history!


It was during a romantic beach walk in Cuba that Ryan popped the question. He had checked the beach was quiet as he knew that Katie doesn’t like a lot of attention – so cute!

The Big Day…


Katie told us how nervous she felt.


“The idea of being the centre of attention scared me senseless. Once I was with Ryan and we saw our family and friends, the nerves just fell away.”

Katie’s fondest memory of the day is singing along with the band at their reception. She remembers looking out and seeing all her loved ones having a good time.

“My dress was perfect for swooshing on the dance floor!

We asked Katie about her Dress Me Pretty experience …


“From the first phone call with Amy finding out about my style and how I wanted to feel on my wedding day, to the first appointment with Amy and Kerry, I was made to feel so comfortable and excited.

Dress shopping wasn’t something I was looking forward to and Amy settled my insecurities amazingly. She picked up on my style and found the PERFECT dress. From there Jodie found the perfect veil and was present at both of my collections. It was AMAZING to find a collection of wedding dresses with quirks and a twist.

The simple things like Amy remembering me at my first appointment in April at my end of October appointment. The genuine interest the team have in their brides is amazing, at no point did I feel I was being sold to. Everything was about what worked best for me. I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL, THANK YOU. “

Katie’s advice for brides to be…


Any stresses that may occur through the planning will all be worth it on the day. The cliché is true, it goes by fast, so enjoy every second and stay true to what you want.
