“We are very lucky to have met each other at such a young age and have been together now for 11 years!! My other half proposed in 2011 in Florida and we got married 2 years ago at the stunning Cranage Hall in Holmes Chapel. Most of our wedding budget went on flowers as I wanted those to be the show stopper. We used the wonderful Jane at Flower Design Events and I can’t recommend her enough. Our wedding cake was a simple Marks and Spencers 4 tier wedding cake. My mum and I added the ribbon and brooch. Flower Design Events decorated it with small posies for a finishing touch.
My wedding dress was a Sophia Tollia design – Susan Y21263 from the lovely Bridal Couture by Josephine. Ladies, if you want the special treatment like in the movies, this is the place to go!! I had been to quite a number of wedding dress shops; my mum and MoH were beginning to lose the plot, but no dress gave me that special feeling. Turns out I had my heart set on a dress that did not compliment my shape! Josephine gave me 5 coloured hangers and told me to choose 5 dresses to try on. The first 4 were easy but Josephine insisted I try on 5 for luck, so I walked up to the front of the shop and put the 5th counter on the first dress because it had a pretty detail on two sections of the dress and said I wanted to try it on first to get it out of the way. Little did I know when I slipped on that Sophia Tolli dress I was going to fall in love. The other 4 just didn’t compare and that was the one!

Michelle looked spectacular in her Sophia Tolli strapless satin ball gown with a pleated wrap-style bodice and midriff and accented with crystal brooches. The Susan dress is no longer available, but for a similar look you will also love Sophia Tolli Maysilee (Style No. Y11320) and Mynah (Style No. 11562).
