Kelly & Dave got married and the beautiful Dodford Manor back in November 2016. Kelly planned a beautiful rustic affair and did lots of the decor herself which included lots of gypsophilia and romantic fairy lights.
Kelly’s Love Story….
Dave and I met on a night out in Rugby town. I remember talking to his friends and not seeing Dave until the next club. Then after i walked off, Dave asked his friend who I was and his friend told him ‘just a girl I know’.
The next day he added me on facebook, we messaged him and that is where it all started. The power of facebook!!!
His friend from back then was his best man at our wedding, and he was who I used to hang around with years ago, just never with Dave! Such a small world.
We have been together just over 6 years now. Got engaged just over 2 years ago on a beach in Majorca, which is where Dave grew up! So romantic!!
We have 2 fur babies – Macho and Buddy. Dave is literally my best friend and I could not be without him.
I did not want anything strapless, I already knew that. I could not imagine pulling my boobs and dress up all day!! I wanted something that came out in the right place, that did not cling to my hips or belly area as i’m a bit self conscious.
When I went to the Sammie Lou Bridal Couture to try on dresses ‘Belle’ was the 2nd or 3rd dress I tried on. I just felt so gorgeous in it. Loved all the sequins on the layer underneath the lace. They were not in your face, but could imagine it twinkling with all the fairy lights we had planned to put up at the venue.
‘Belle’ as Sammie had called the dress was a White Rose Bridal Gown. It was such a gorgeous dress and I loved all the lace which just fitted our rustic theme and Dodford Manor Barn just perfectly. Kelly teamed her gown with a beautiful pearl and crystal belt by Amanda Wyatt.
Most Memorable moments of your day…
I cant really pick one moment, as the day was just perfect for us both.
Crying on the phone to my Grandad on the morning after just having my makeup done, as he could not make it after having an operation, was one of the things I will never forget.
My dad first seeing me in my dress and crying.
Looking through the little window at Dave waiting for me, giving me such big butterflies.
Me and Dave getting things wrong in our vows, and laughing about it!!
The whole day was just magical. Wish we could do it everyday!!
Thanks for sharing your story Kelly. I love looking at your pictures the love you have for each other just shines through.
Wishing you and Dave a very happy marriage! xx
