Well Something New is now one year old! What a wonderful year it’s been. Featuring brides from all over the world, plus so many beautiful engagement shoots! I want to kick off our second year with a stunning wedding shot by award-winning photographer Mick Cookson.
Faye has kindly shared her day with you all. And doesn’t she look incredible in her Ronald Joyce gown from Edith & Winston Bridalwear. Liverpool was the setting to this beautiful wedding and I absolutely love how Mick captured the Liver Building behing the newly married couple. What a brilliant way to kick off Something New’s second year! Enjoy!
Faye, can you tell us a little bit about you and Ryan and how you got engaged?
We met in 2008 when Ryan came to fix my computer in work…..fast forward 7 years and Ryan proposed at ‘our beach’ in Anglesey, Wales. He said he had it all planned out, I would take a picture of the sea (like I always do!) and when I tuned around he would be on one knee and ask the question. But not that day…..I sat down and tucked into the picnic we had brought with us. He eventually got down on one knee as I was tucking into my tuna wrap 🙂 I think he panicked!! haha
What would you say was your favourite part of your big day?
I would say the highlight of the day was seeing Ryan at the alter. I remember standing at the back of the church with my dad and feeling like my heart was going to burst out of my chest. I looked down the aisle to the alter, saw Ryan and immediately felt relief. Being the centre of attention is daunting but seeing him grounded me and my nerves were replaced with happiness and excitment.
Everyone told me to enjoy every minute of the day and I now know why, it flies by and before you know it you are waking up the next morning a Mrs! I remember the band getting me and Ryan to dance in the middle of the dance floor and our family and friends circled around us. I looked around the circle and felt surrounded by love! Everyone was there to celebrate with us and the feeling was indescribable but I will remember it forever.
Do you have any advice for any nervous brides reading this?
My advice to nervous brides is on the day no one will care if your veil is a little creased, the curls in your hair will probably fall out and everything might not go to plan but the moment you stand at the back of the church and look to the altar, your eyes will meet you won’t care!
