Claire & Chris’s Wedding

The Most Perfect Wedding Day at Bosworth Hall.

After postponing their wedding for a year, Claire and Chris were finally able to marry in August.  Following the initial disappointment of having to change their plans, Claire told us she felt quite overwhelmed in the morning of her Wedding Day. They’d postponed from September 2020 due to Covid and it was only confirmed that restrictions were lifted a month before the wedding so she couldn’t believe it was actually happening. Claire also lost her mum and grandad in 2019 and 2020 so it was sad not having them there. But once she was ready and in her dress she felt so excited to finally be walking down the aisle to marry her fiancé. Then the rest of the day she just felt happy!

How They Met

Claire and Chris met in The Terrace bar in Leicester just after midnight on New Year’s Eve. Chris was with a friend who had just started dating Claire’s housemate.

The Proposal

They have always loved walking in the Peak District. Chris took Claire to the Peak District for a walk just after her birthday. Their eldest son was with them in the sling he was 1 at the time! Chris was acting weird the whole walk. At one point he went ahead, called Claire’s name she turned around and he was down on one knee holding a ring and said “Will you marry me?” Claire said yes!

Claire’s Dress Me Pretty Experience

“I’d visited 3 dress shops previously and had worked out I wanted a dress with about 6 must haves and didn’t think I’d ever find one. Then I saw my dress on the Dress Me Pretty website and it ticked every box so I rang and made an appointment to try it on. I tried it on and it was perfect. I also tried on quite a few other absolutely beautiful dresses but nothing compared to ‘my’ dress. So I bought it there and then!”

Claire’s Special Memory of the Day

“My eldest son (Albert aged 5) walking me down the aisle and seeing my husband to be looking at us.”

Claire’s Advice for Brides-to-be

“Just enjoy every moment!! I found the planning and the last few weeks quite stressful but looking back every part was so special even the stressful bits. And ultimately remember why you are doing it – to marry the love of your life which is just the best feeling”
