Charley + Tom

How did you meet?

Online! in a coffee shop and he was half an hour late – I almost gave up waiting!

When did you know they were the one?

He is my best friend, my ‘other glove’ – and always tries to make my life that little bit easier 

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

His kindness, his ambition & his dimple smile.

Who proposed and how? 

Christmas 2017 – He proposed, the ring was hidden in a bauble on the Christmas tree, it took me about 5 minutes to find it, he kept saying ‘you’ve missed your main present!’

What was the best moment for you at the wedding?

When we arrived back at the marquee after our wedding ceremony it was just the two of us and were able to relax and take it all in and have a glass of prosecco before any of the guests arrived

Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?

Coco & Kate in Warwickshire, I knew I wanted a MWL wedding dress and they were the closest stockist to me with the biggest selection, it was between Tommy and Sienna – Tommy was beautiful and I loved the lace detailing on the skirt which made it that little bit more special, I think it helped my future husband was called Tom so felt like it was meant to be!

What surprised you most at or about your wedding?

How fast the time went and that the whole day felt like a dream!

What advice would you tell other brides? 

Enjoy it, take it all in and don’t stress about the little things.

What was one thing you did differently for your wedding?

We had a wedding through Corona Virus – we stuck to our original date of 5th Sept 2020 and held out that things would go ahead. We were allowed 30 of our nearest and dearest – we felt so lucky as the following week they changed the number back down to max 15 guests or only for extenuating circumstances so felt like we were blessed to have our wedding as close to our original plan as possible and aside from a smaller number of guests that were permitted and our guests having to wear masks in the church – we wouldn’t of changed anything !
