Sometimes there are those weddings that come across your desk and you just fall in love. Cross-Jones Photography really captured Welsh couple’s Heather & Pete’s classic wedding held in the beautiful city of Bath. Its a fun and relaxed wedding that brought friends and family together. Sit back and enjoy this little beauty with a coffee and a welsh cake. ~ Kate
How would you describe your wedding theme?
We wanted a classic and fun wedding.
What was your favourite part of your wedding?
Tell us about your Wedding Dress
My mum booked the wedding dress shop and my sister chose the dress!
I went with my mum, sister, gramma, mother-in-law and one of my two Auntys.
It was a fun day, with my energy sustained by gramma’s chocolate stash!
In the first shop, my sister pulled a dress off the rack and said try this, and that was that, I loved the first one I tried on. We still went to the other appointments so I could make an informed choice – but I knew that I’d already found one I’d be happy wearing.
Who did you pick as your bridesmaids &/or best man and why?
My lovely little sister, Charlotte, was my bridesmaid and Pete’s best man was his brother, Phil.
We are so close to our siblings and as we were having a simple wedding it was enough to have one person each for support on the day.
Why did you choose your venue?
Tell us about your photographer
Cross-Jones Photography were my only choice as we are lifelong best friends!
How did the proposal happen?
Christmas Eve 2014 – Wandering through beautiful Bath on our way to a meal in our favourite Thai restaurant, Pete stopped by the river side (suspiciously also by Bath rugby ground!) and simply asked me to marry him – 7.5months later and the job was done!
What was your first dance & why?
We decided to have a first dance about 2 weeks before the wedding. Our tastes in music differ greatly – in 6 years we have only agreed on one song; CeeLo Green’s ‘I want you ‘ …. so the choice was easy!
In hindsight, was there anything you would have done differently?
Do you have any advice for future couples?
Although I was tee total on the day (I wanted to remember it all and was already on a high), we both felt like we had massive hangovers the next day. I think the adrenalin, excitement, emotion and dancing wiped us out. I couldn’t imagine having to travel to a honeymoon destination that day.
