For this #InOurVeils blog, we feature Candice who wore a Joyce Jackson veil for her wedding to partner Ryan last July. Their special day included a pink, white and silver theme at the Carlton Park Hotel in the heart of Yorkshire.
How did you and your partner meet?
We first met at my place of work – a salon where I cut his hair. For many years it was a “Hello how are you?” sort of conversation and he asked me to go for a drink at the pub, which I refused lol, but years later we saw each other at the ice skates and from then we started talking and then dating until we became a couple, he only waited five years but was all worth the wait.
Tell us all about your proposal – where, when and how?
On Christmas day 2013 he spoilt me rotten, but there was this one present I had to carry round with me all day till we got to my mums, and then he said you can open it now and in a wrapped up shoebox was this little box with a beautiful ring inside, and in front of all my family, he asked me to marry him.
When and where did you get married?
21st July 2018 at the Carlton Park Hotel in Rotherham.
Did you have a specific theme or colour scheme?
Pale pink, white and silver
How did you feel when you said yes to the dress?
Overwhelmed with happiness! I got my Cinderella dress I always dreamed of
How did you choose your veil?
I saw it straight away and knew it was the one before I even tried it on, I felt a million dollars in it!
What was your most favourite and memorable part of the day?
Our first dance. We sang to each other and cried all the way through. It was magical
Do you have any advice for brides to be?
Enjoy every second and let the guest approach you, don’t waste time making sure you’ve got round everyone they will come to you, I danced all night with my husband and friends we were hardly apart, so treasure it, don’t waste it.
