A Lovely Love Story..

Myself and “Mr M”, met back in 2009 at my workplace, whilst he was on a volunteering scheme as part of his full time job. I was covered in glitter, and he was giving mulled wine and mince pies to little old ladies. Aww!

It’s cheesy to say, but I knew from the moment we first spoke on that day, that we’d get together!!

We kept in contact from the very next day and spoke in great lengths on the internet for over 3 months before we actually met up again, in February 2010. By mid-March it was ‘official’; many romantic dates were arranged, and I was thoroughly spoilt with meals and trips out to various places!


The Proposal..

Mr M finally (I say finally, but I didn’t really have to wait that long although it felt like forever!) proposed on Wednesday 6th July 2011 at a gorgeous place called Kynance Cove in Cornwall whilst we were on holiday.

I’ll save the full story for my wedding report, but to give you the basics, it involved me feeling travel-sick, a cup of tea, a piece of cake, a failed picnic, a trip down a cliff face and LOTS of tears!!

The Ring..

My gorgeous ring is a marquise cut diamond, set in white gold. The marquise cut was designed for royalty (King Louis XV in the 18th Century) – hence why I wanted one!!! 

Marquise diamonds are one of the least common cuts of diamond, and good quality ones can be quite hard to get hold of. In fact, with my ring itself, the diamond was only sourced two days before we were due to leave for our holiday after about a month of searching!!


The Wedding..

After a lot of setbacks, we finally set the date for our wedding; we are getting married on Saturday 28th December 2013 at 2pm!!!

I am possibly THE most excited Bride ever – I cannot wait to marry Mr M and start what will be the most amazing journey to old age together.

I am a full on DIY Bride, so expect lots of crafts and DIY projects, lots of bargain hunting and LOTS of excitement…

  1. Hi there,

    I hope you dont mind me contacting you but I am doing some research for a documentary and wanted to see if you might be interested in beng involved.

    We are looking for a couple planning their dream wedding on a budget.

    More and more Brits are finding new and innovative ways to save money; research shows that 93% bargain hunt and 10 million use online vouchers.

    We Brits take pride in getting something for nothing and we’re looking to celebrate that in a forthcoming Channel 4 documentary.

    We’d like to speak to thrifty brides and grooms to find out what they’re doing to get the best deal for their wedding.

    If you’re planning a wedding on the cheap or know somebody who is – please get in touch.

    You can send me a message on here or email sophie.mohammed@rawtelevision.co.uk

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Many thanks,
