PROPOSAL When, where and how was the marriage proposal?

Matthews’s proposal was just perfect in every way, we were away on holiday in Ibiza (which was the place we 1st went on holiday together when we were 16) we had a table booked at Café Mambo to watch the sunset and just as the sun was about to set he got down on one knee and proposed the whole restaurant clapped and cheered for us which was just amazing & of course I said yes! 

VENUE Why did you choose Mitton Hall?

As soon as we visited Mitton Hall we both fell in love with the venue and knew it was exactly what we were looking for.

PLANNING Did anyone in particular bring your wedding to life?

We had no wedding planner but our wedding was definitely brought to life by our suppliers who we would like to give an extra special thanks to – Creative events did all our venue dressing from chair sashes to the ailse carpet and wedding breakfast décor and it looked beautiful we were blown away when we walked into our wedding breakfast room. LA florist did all our wedding flowers for the ceremony, wedding breakfast and also mine and my Bridesmaids bouquets and they were stunning just exactly how I imagined them to be.

EXTRA'S Tell us about the little things that made your day personal?

We chose places in Ibiza for our table names as its such a special place to us with Café Mambo being the top table. We had photos on our guest table from when we 1st got together until the year we got married and placed our first dance lyrics along with them and we tried to choose songs throughout the day that really meant something to us.
