Although the idea of planning a wedding in a year, or less, may seem completely bonkers – it can be done and is perhaps more common than you think! There has certainly been a recent trend for shorter engagements, Megan Markle and Prince Harry for example, who were married after 7 and a half months. They did, of course, have a budget fit for a future king and queen, but planning a wedding within a shorter time frame does not mean breaking the bank.
Kelly met Stephen when she started her new job in 2011.
After their first date to ‘La Tasca’ in Manchester, many more followed over the next five years. In 2016 they enjoyed a romantic meal served outdoors on the final night of their holiday to Mexico. Returning to their room later, Kelly found champagne, chocolates and a cake which read ‘Happy Birthday’. Confused, she turned around to find Stephen on bended knee!
Rebecca and James met in 2008 whilst attending a maths workshop at University then, eight years later they booked a weekend away of rest and relaxation. James had prepared a montage of photos including a special picture of each year that they’d spent together. He chose to upgrade their room to a suite in order to choose this special time to propose to Rebecca. Coupled with a custom-made diamond ring, James’ framed picture was a truly romantic gift and of course Rebecca said yes! The couple heard of West Tower through Facebook and Instagram and decided that they had to visit the Lancashire venue. The setting and layout of the house was perfect for how they pictured their summer wedding.
