Natalie + Sam

How did you meet?

When we were 15. We went to school together but then had our first date after he had left school. It was a warm July evening when he asked me if I wanted to go out. He turned up the next day to take me out and forgot the bus fare. Which he still owes me

When did you know they were the one?

We did lots very young. We welcomed our first beautiful baby girl in the January of 2009. We now had our lives to work out and the life of our beautiful Ava. Watching him become a father, it was only ever going to be him

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner? 

His face 🙂
His ability to push me on and be my biggest fan
And the way he is a father to our three amazing children

Who proposed and how? 

Sam did. We had been together for 15 years and no sign of a ring!
He then July 9th, 2022 took me to one of the most beautiful beaches in Devon, Instow. This had taken a lot of thought and research and was ironically where my family originate from. It was beautiful. Like something out of a movie. The beach could have been miles and miles away from here and looked like the Sahara. As he powered off into the distance being driven by his nerves. I needed my inhaler to keep up with him wondering why he’s walking so fast. He then got down on one knee. And we just laughed

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

I found the beautiful blonde model on one of my insta feeds. July 17th, 2022. From that moment there was never ever any competition

What was the best moment for you at your wedding?

The whole thing. It was so well organised and came together in just 15 weeks. We had the most amazing pianist who had everyone up dancing and it was so lush to be surrounded by so much love

Walking down the aisle was amazing to see everyone so emotional and see how much it meant to them as well as to us

What were your favorite details?

My dress
My hair and make up.
My beautiful children and the bridesmaids
And the flowers which I did all myself

What advice would you tell other brides?

You can do much more than you think you can
Relish every moment
Do what YOU want to do
What’s tradition? It’s YOUR wedding

Any Standout vendors?
