Katie & Andrew

We met 6 years ago on a crazy Queen's Day weekend in Amsterdam where we were introduced through my brother.  The first 2 years involved lots of driving between London and Birmingham, before Andy made the move to London.  As Andy said in his speech, its been a bit of a whirlwind, or a blur depending on how you look at it, we've had a lot of fun together!
5 years after we met under the guise of a concert in Amsterdam, we happened to be walking over a memorable bridge from the weekend that we met.  Andy was suddenly on his knee with a ring in his hand.
Andy wanted something classic, and took himself off to Hatton Gardens to purchase it.  Its perfect with 3 emerald cut stones.  I had no idea what I would have wanted, he borrowed one of my rings and took it to the jewellers to get the right size.


I went to a couple of wedding dress shops and found the process very daunting and not very personal.  I quickly realised that I wanted something very simple and Sharon from 'Go Bridal' helped me try on countless dresses! Sharon was so patient with me, and made me feel really at ease and made the whole process really enjoyable. Eventually I found Ali from Augusta Jones.  When I had my fitting i even wanted to chop half of the train off. Gladly Sharon managed to convince me to keep it and she was completely right about it! It was a beautiful wedding dress just as it is!

My advice to brides-to-be is don't worry about it. Everyone is there to have a great time.  Things will go wrong -  the traffic was hideous, we forgot the order of service, the wedding cake got dropped 2 days before the wedding, but it really didn't matter.  We sorted it out and just enjoyed it all and now these are all stories that make up the wedding!
