A romantic tale

Natasha and David enjoyed a classic romance and even ended up tying the knot in the venue where they enjoyed their first weekend away.

You never know when or where you're going to meet the love of your life and for Natasha, it turned out her future husband had been there all along. The pair met through mutual friends and despite hitting it off right away, they remained pals before they started happily dating.

Fast-forward another three years and the lovebirds decided to take their relationship to the next stage when David proposed.

“He'd spoken about getting married for a while but I can be funny about jewellery so he was unsure what to get me,” remembers Natasha. “I'm also not keen on public displays of affection, which made it difficult to surprise me.”

However, one night the pair were winding down on the sofa and watching the TV show Two Pints of Larger and a Packet of Crisps. In this particular episode two of the characters got engaged. The couple then started talking about their future plans and David asked her to be his wife! As it turns out he'd been trying to find a way to ask for a while but never found the right moment – the very next day they went out together and chose a ring.

Here, Natasha tells us details of their dream day…

The venue held very special memories for us, as it's where we spent our first weekend away. We couldn't have got married anywhere else.

David chose all the clothes for the guys. He wanted to add little accents so he and our two boys stood out.

It was difficult to find a dress that all my bridesmaids liked, but we got there in the end and everyone loved the final selection and their shoes.

I remember feeling very nervous and excited on the big day. Neither of us like to be the centre of attention and it was quite hard during our ceremony; but we really enjoyed ourselves and felt so relaxed.
