Catherine & Tim


The Big Question

After 6 years of being together I was convinced I would be able to tell when Tim decided to pop the question. Christmas Eve 2014, I came home after a busy day at work to find Tim cooking dinner. After dinner the champagne came out and Tim dropped on one knee. After I had got over the shock and stopped crying, of course I said yes.

Shop Till You Drop

From doing research I had an idea what type of dress that I wanted. After many recommendations I decided to go to Krystle Brides in Bath in hope they would have something that would be appropriate. They were really helpful and lovely, with a great selection of dresses. I came across Augusta Jones London and fell in Love. I loved the open back and the combination of satin and delicate lace.

A Perfect Day

We always planned to get married abroad and decided that the beautiful  Lake Como in Italy was perfect for us.  This allowed us to have an outdoor wedding in the sunshine and spend quality time with our nearest and dearest. With help from our lovely wedding planner Rossana (Italian lakes weddings) we had a lake side ceremony at Villa Cipressi. After we got to visit the gorgeous Villa Monestero and wonder round the stunning gardens and have photos. We had then arranged a boat trip to Bellagio, a pretty little lakeside town where we enjoyed Presseco and icecream.

Following this the reception was back at Villa Cipressi, were in true Italian style we had a multitude of courses and enjoyed fabulous food and wine. From here we were able to watch the sun set over Lake Como, with the celebrations carrying on into the night.

Wise words

Our wedding planning was completed from start to finish in less than 6 months. My best advice is not to let it become stressful and enjoy every minute. This should be a very special day for both of you that you will cherish forever.
