Here at Georgina Scott Bridal we love nothing more than hearing stories from our brides and grooms, whether they be funny, sad or soppy! We love them all! We get to meet our couples in the middle of their journey together, so we become curious about the beginning; such as how they met and how the all important proposal went!
We get to know our brides so well, many become friends, and some of their beautiful stories bring us to tears. Happy tears of course!! And we wanted to share some of them with you. Whether you smile at them, cry or just have comfort from them, hearing from brides themselves that weddings can be full of ups and downs but all in all there is no need to stress… it all works out perfect in the end.
Here is the story of the beautiful Steph & Matt…..
“We met when we were both teenagers on the dance floor of a local nightclub! We went on a few dates and decided to make it official. The teen romance lasted and we have now been together for 13 years. Matt proposed when we were on holiday in Kefalonia in September 2016. We hired a small boat and spent the day going between small secluded beaches that can only be reached by boat. One of the beaches is where a famous scene was filmed for Captain Correlli’s Mandolin, so when we reached it, Matt anchored the boat and then surprised me with a ring!”
“All 3 of my best friends had their own wedding dresses from Georgina Scott. They said it would be fate if i also found my dress there. When we met Tracie she was so helpful and patient. Each time we went back Tracie was friendly and we always enjoyed a chat! Although it took me a while to finally decide on my dress, ‘The One’ was waiting for me at Georgina Scott. My alterations were perfect and I absolutely loved wearing my beautiful Pronovias dress on my wedding day. I have had so many comments on how stunning it was!”
The wedding… 29th May 2018
We fell in love the Mill Barns from viewing the plans and booked it when it was just concrete in the ground. We knew they would create a beautiful venue and when we saw it completed we couldn’t believe how stunning it was and we felt so lucky to have booked it for our big day. After booking the venue, we had 19 months to plan our wedding day. We booked all of our key suppliers early on in the process so the structure of the day was sorted. I then concentrated on choosing a dress. Once I had my lovely lace dress, we looked for bridesmaid dresses to complement it and then chose a hessian and lace theme for all of the little details to tie in with my dress.
Mum was a big help in the months before the wedding as she made our table runners and helped with lots of our other DIY decorations and last minute shopping trips. Family and friends helped a lot with the little details as it got closer to the day. Luckily everything went to plan and we had no hick ups! The key is being organised early, having lots of lists and a spreadsheet!
Our day was perfect and we both loved every minute of it. I can’t think of anything I would change. My advice to other brides is to relax on your wedding day and try to take it all in from the moment you wake up to the last dance of the night! You want to be able to capture the special feeling you have on the day and remember it for the rest of your life!
