Wedding Wednesday – Behind the Bride – Kelly 

This week I had a chat with Kelly from Nature Mum Blog

Hi Kelly, congratulations on the engagement! When’s the big day? 

We are due to marry on the 7th August 2017. 

Tell me a bit about yourself and your partner. When and where did you first meet? 

The first time I met my partner was actually at my sisters wedding. He was the Usher and the Grooms brother. He is actually my sisters brother in law. So we met in a church.

How did they propose? Or was it you who popped the question? 

He took our son and I to the top of Carreg Cennen castle in Wales. We were meant to be going for a casual walk but once we stopped for a rest he took the ring from his pocket and popped the question. It was a truly beautiful moment as our son was with us too.

How far into the planning process are you? 

We have booked nearly everything now. I just need to get flowers, bridesmaids dresses and gifts. I am doing the flowers myself so I really need to research how to do them! Oh we also need rings. I would love ethical white gold but they are way out of our budget. I really don’t like the idea of marrying with rings which aren’t for life but I can’t see any other option.

Tell me a bit about your big day. Where are you getting married? Do you have a theme or a colour scheme? 

We are getting married in a beautiful Welsh manor called Newton House Dinefwr, in Llandeilo. We are getting married in their gardens over looking their deer park. It is a very romantic and historical setting. Our theme is nature.

What’s been the best part of wedding planning so far? 

Finding my wedding dress. I am a curvatious lady so I wasn’t sure if I would find one that suits. I have actually found the most amazing dress that shows off my hour glass figure. I hated taking it off at my last fitting.

Have there been any low points or things you have found harder than you imagined? 

Yes quite a few. I really wanted to elope. We have a lot of complications in our family so I wasn’t keen on a big family wedding. I have found that certain family members aren’t so keen on our wedding because they think it has cost a lot of money, purely because of the location. But it was much cheaper than any of the weddings in my family. But I guess that is families for you.

Thank you so much for taking part in Behind the Bride. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness!

    Weddings make me so excited. I love that they’ve met at a wedding themselves too I think that’s sweet. And yay for the right dress, I’m exactly the same, pretty curvy so too worry if I’d find ‘the one’
