How would you describe your wedding theme?

We wanted a classic and fun wedding.

What was your favourite part of your wedding?

Marrying Pete. After 6years together I already felt committed to him for life so I was surprised by the strength of my emotion when saying my vows and hearing him return those promises.Heather & Pete-164

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.Heather & Pete-40Heather & Pete-45

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.

Charlotte’s partner Chris was also a great help to us both on the day, you could say he was a spare bridesmaid/groomsman!Heather & Pete-79

Why did you choose your venue?

The Bath Cricket Club fitted our needs… spacious, located in the centre of Bath, short walk from the Guildhall, and most importantly-reasonably priced.

Oh, and Pete is cricket mad!Heather & Pete-217Heather & Pete-1

Tell us about your photographer

Cross-Jones Photography were my only choice as we are lifelong best friends!

It’s a good thing Pete and I have always loved their work and we absolutely LOVE our photos.Heather & Pete-422

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!Heather & Pete-180

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!Heather & Pete-456

In hindsight, was there anything you would have done differently?

No. I had no expectations or dreams about the day, apart from to end the 7th August 2015 married to Pete. This mind set unintentionally allowed us to have a perfect day.Heather & Pete-304

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.

I would advise giving yourselves a day of rest immediately after the wedding day just to chill and take it in…. and then go on hols!Heather & Pete-275

What was your favourite thing about planning a wedding?

Seeing the excitement it gave my family and friends.Heather & Pete-482Heather & Pete-423
