Real Weddings Questionnaire

Our first date was in Durham, we went for a meal and drinks and stayed out talking and
getting to know each other until all the bars closed and we had to go home.
Tell us about the Proposal…..
Anthony proposed on Saltburn pier, we’d just been for a meal and went for a walk afterwards,
we started walking along the pier and that’s when he got down on one knee!

Our first night away together, we stayed at the Spa Hotel, we’d been to Saltburn before and
had driven past it and said we should stay there sometime, so we did! Then we just kept
coming back because we loved it so much. It was the obvious choice when choosing our
wedding venue.

Wildflowers. So everything was multi-coloured, and the bouquets me and my mam made up

I couldn’t pick just one thing! The whole day from start to finish was incredible and absolutely
jam-packed with things going on! I loved walking down the aisle to Anthony, I loved our car
ride to the hotel, seeing our families together with some meeting for the first time. The food,
the speeches, the evening of dancing…everything!

My wedding dress was a tea dress with a lace top. It is an unbranded custom made dress.
What did your Bridesmaids wear?
A Navy off the shoulder lace tea dress
And the Groom?
Anthony wore a grey tweed suit with a floral red bow tie.

We had a photobooth (Magnum Entertainment) for the evening.

Pinterest! Do your research, make up a moodboard on Pinterest and make sub sections of all
the different elements to the day, e,g. the dress, grooms suit, bridesmaids dresses, design of
cake, flowers etc. It really helps you get an image in your head of how the day could look
before you go ahead and buy anything. Also book all the 2 big things as soon as possible –
the venue and the photographer.

Absolutely, the staff couldn’t do enough to help us, Rebecca has been amazing throughout
the planning, and on the day itself. The venue itself is beautiful, the view is outstanding! We all
loved the food too, we opted for afternoon tea for our reception and I got a separate vegan
meal which was absolutely gorgeous!
