Megan and Richard
As butterflies twirled and flowers blossomed, Megan’s heart skipped a beat when her beloved partner, Richard knelt before her on the butterfly bridge in Stratford-Upon-Avon, to ask for her hand in marriage. A decade beforehand, these love-struck teenagers started a playground romance after Megan persisted, and then on August 25th 2017, the gorgeous couple tied the knot. Their dream wedding sustained the butterfly and nature theme with tints of cream and teal, replicating Richards dark grey and teal suit perfectly. After falling in love with dress instantly, it was clear to all that the La Sposa wedding gown, complemented Megan’s personality seamlessly. The stunning strapless fishtail style looked elegant paired with a lace guipure, adding an extra feature to the button-back gown. The long veil Megan wore looked flawless with her naturally waved hair and the detail of the dainty diamantes added a little sparkle. The bouquet was a natural masterpiece, flourishing with calla lilies and peacock feathers, among an earthy accent of herbs and moss. The breath-taking moment Megan sauntered down the aisle, Richard’s eyes lit up and his expression was priceless – a memory Megan will cherish forever.
Do you have any top tips on overcoming nerves the night before your wedding, Megan?
‘Yes, I was so nervous, but I kept myself distracted with my bridesmaids. We stayed ‘til late, chatting and dancing around the bedroom!’
If you could go back to the planning stage of your wedding, what would you do differently and why?
‘I wouldn’t change a thing! We took 2 years to plan our special day in order to make it absolutely right for us. I searched for suppliers endlessly and selected the ones that best suited the natural theme of our wedding.’
What is the best piece of advice you could offer another bride?
‘It’s your day it’s important to not let anyone tell you what to do or that they don’t like your ideas. Your wedding day reflects you and your soon to be husband so if someone gives you advise or tells you what to do simply smile and say ‘thank you I’ll take it on board’ but then go ahead and do what you want anyway. Also, when you’re sat at your table sitting down for food, just take a moment to look up from all the madness and take it all in; look around the room and see what people are wearing and how they look and the smiles and laughter of your loved ones that surround you. Careful because it goes by so fast, you have to enjoy it!’
What are you most looking forward too about married life?
‘I can’t wait to start a family and have kids together. It’s us against the world and I’m so excited to seize our time to create our home and plan our future, exactly how we’ve dreamt it!’
