Ashton and Dave had a beautiful, fairytale wedding with touches of Disney magic! And Ashton’s dress is simply amazing…
When Ashton started talking to Dave she knew he was the one, and since then they’ve had so many fun memories together! At one of their first dates Dave had spaghetti with tomatoes and as he put his fork into one, it squirted all over Ashton, “I just remember us laughing so hard and it really broke the ice!” says Ashton.
This stunning bride had told her groom about a wishing well she’d gone to when she was young, and that’s where Dave chose to propose! He told her to make a wish and throw a penny in the well, moments later she was looking at the most beautiful ring. Ashton ordered her amazing Ian Stuart gown from Mimi Toko in Duffield. The blue and silver silk garza bodice had pink pearls added to it and the beautiful, huge skirt was in cream taffeta – exquisite! The bride accessorised with shoes from Irregular Choice and silk elbow-length gloves, so she felt just like a real Disney princess.
Dave wore a tweed jacket from Harris Tweed so he had something he could wear again after the wedding, while her two bridesmaids wore 1950s dresses handmade by local dressmaker Bella Figura. This couple opted for a civil ceremony at Warwick Castle and Ashton’s dad walked her down the aisle, even at one point whispering “slow down” to his daughter. The gorgeous menu was smoked haddock fishcake for starters, beef loin and dauphinoise potatoes for main all topped off with a chocolate orange tart!
To match the castle venue, Ashton and Dave wanted a Disney theme for their big day, keeping the décor simple as their venue was stunning on its own. This thoughtful couple wanted to stick to the Disney theme right down to their favours, so they gave everyone personalised Mickey and Minnie Mouse sweet-filled bags as a treat! Sticking with the fairytale Disney theme Ashton and Dave had their first dance to Tale As Old As Time from the film Beauty and the Beast – perfect!
