Sophie + Michael
How did you meet?
In high school at aged 14 and married 13 years later!
When did you know they were the one?
As we got older and grew up together we knew we couldn’t be without each other, even after living long distance for 3 years at university
What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?
His positive outlook on life and any difficult situation
Sense of humour
Who proposed and how?
He did on my favourite local beach on Boxing Day 2020. We went for a long walk before the UK was put into another lockdown. We were the only ones on the beach and I started to walk ahead for a minute, when I turned around he was on his knee.
Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?
At Halo and Wren. I tried on 6-8 MWL dresses and adored them all but Louie Flowy felt so me. I loved the pretty blossom detail, it felt so romantic and perfect for our countryside wedding. I had been to 3 dress shops before it and hadn’t seen any style like that before
What was the best moment for you at your wedding?
Being surrounded by all our favourite people for the day
We also loved a moment after the day when everyone had left/ gone to bed and we went for a stroll together through the grounds and chatted/reflected on our amazing day
What were your favourite details?
A Polaroid guestbook
Our table centrepieces and flowers
What advice would you tell other brides?
Try to remain calm during the process and at all times of the day – just enjoy it
