In our latest blog post with the adorable couple, we helped Sophie & Dave recreate their proposal story. So for their wedding day, we wanted to ensure they had the perfect wedding jewellery for the bride, groom and all the bridal party.
We caught up with Dave to hear his beautiful wedding story and his favourite memories from the big day, while Sophie shares her top five tips for planning your wedding. Pen and paper at the ready brides and grooms, you don’t want to miss this.
What Happened On The Day
”I spent the morning trying to take my time and stay relaxed by having breakfast with my best man. Hilarity ensued as we all began to put on our kilts later that day!
It was a little more hectic over with the ladies. The reception venue was decorated with flowers and candles first thing in the morning and then makeup began at 9:30am. Bouquets trimmed and tied with ribbon and then everyone getting dressed.
“When Soph entered the room with her dad walking her down the aisle she took my breath away. The moment everyone talks about, the love of my life walking down the aisle towards me, it’s indescribable.
“The ceremony was beautiful - when Sophie read the vows that she had written for me, it took everything I had not to become a blubbering mess! Even the lady performing the ceremony and the registrar got a little emotional.
“I don’t think that either Sophie or I have ever felt so loved as we did in that room full of all of the people closest to us who were having a great time celebrating our love for each other. It was everything I could have hoped for and so much more!”
The Wedding Jewellery
Sophie chose these 9ct White Gold Freshwater Cultured Pearl Drop Earrings for her bridal look. “I really loved how they complemented my dress in a simple, but beautiful way.”
We love the snowy-white finish of these pearl earrings, matched with carefully selected cubic zirconia for a stunning sparkle. The timeless style makes them the perfect finishing touch for any wedding dress.
Nina, one of Sophie’s bridesmaids, loved her 9ct Gold Bead Bracelet. Sophie said “it looked beautiful with the gold sequins in her dress.”
We love the simplicity of this design with its sleek gold chain. The 9ct gold polished balls add a contemporary twist. This beautiful bracelet will look ultra-stylish layered with more bracelets after your wedding day.
This triple strand bracelet was the perfect choice for one of Sophie’s other bridesmaids. “The Silver Rose Gold Plated Triple Strand Bracelet complemented the embellishment on Ceri's dress perfectly.”
We love how Sophie has thought about the details on her bridesmaid dresses and tied everything together perfectly with matching accessories.
This layered look is ultra-fashionable and the rose gold plated silver finish makes it even more fashionable. This bracelet is perfect for brides planning a rose gold wedding theme.
For bridesmaids Becca and Lauren, Sophie chose the Silver Ball Bracelet. “It looked so lovely with their pale pink dresses.”
This style is classic and perfect for a wedding look, but will look just as stunning worn after the special day dressed up or down.
The perfect finishing touch, Sophie chose these 9ct Gold Cubic Zirconia Stud Earrings for all of her bridesmaids. “We chose different dresses for all of the girls, so having matching earrings really tied all of the different looks together.”
We love the glimmer of gold from these must-have earrings, matched with glistening cubic zirconia that’s been chosen especially for their breathtaking sparkle.
“An extra special bracelet for my maid of honour and sister Jess. She was beyond thrilled with her 9ct Gold Slider Bracelet.”
Treating your bridesmaids to beautiful wedding jewellery on your big day is the perfect way to thank them for all their help. Our selection of slider bracelets will look beautiful on your big day and beyond.
This stunning bracelet features a sparkle cut chain to create a glistening effect as you move. We love the on-trend slider fastener that makes it easy to adjust and fit you perfectly.
All of the groomsmen were given a stylish pair of Men’s brushed Stainless Steel Cufflinks that Sophie and Dave wanted them to wear on their special day and also treasure forever. “We thought cufflinks would be the perfect piece for them to remember our special day.”
The combination of a fine-brushed finish with a polished finish gives these classic cufflinks a modern twist. The minimal feel will ensure you’ll love them forever.
Five Top Tips For Planning Your Wedding
Sophie and Dave’s wedding day came together beautifully. We all know planning a wedding can take a lot of time and effort, so we asked the happy newly weds for their top tips on planning your wedding day.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help
Your family and friends love you and will want to help in any way they can.
Enjoy the few days before
Have as much finished at least three days before as you possibly can. Those last moments should be spent relaxing and enjoying the time with your family and friends.
Make time for each other
Take some time to be together on the day. It’s so important to get some alone time and enjoy the experience together.
We did our own flowers and it turned out to be one of the best decisions we made! The house being filled with flowers the night before and my mum and sisters making my bouquets is one of favourite memories.
Trust your instincts
Trust your instincts in the planning stages - it’s so true when they say it’s impossible to please everyone.
