Michelle & Ross: Real Bride Story
Morilee Bride, Michelle, tells us about her plan to wear her wedding dress on every anniversary following her beautiful autumn wedding.
How did the two of you meet?
Ross and I met when we were younger in a local nightclub. We were both there with separate groups of friends, but we hit it off straight away and have been inseparable ever since.
How did he propose?
We went on a fabulous holiday to Jamaica about 7 years after we first met, and one day at the beach Ross got down on one knee and surprised me with a ring. It was such an amazing moment.
Tell us about your dress shopping experience, how did you know you had found the perfect dress?
I was getting frustrated after trying on lots of dresses at various shops. I knew what I wanted but just couldn’t find it. As soon as I tried on style 5462 dress from the Morilee Blu collection I knew I had found the one.
To be honest I didn’t really take to the dress when it was on the hanger, but my sister persuaded me to try it on and once it was on I realised it was exactly what I had been looking for. I’m so grateful she persuaded me to try it on!
I loved everything about it, it is so elegant and suited our theme perfectly. It’s a gorgeous fitted style with a flowing skirt and just the right amount of sparkle without being over the top. The back of the dress is to die for.
Tell us all about the big day
We had or ceremony with 89 of our closest family and friends at The Coniston Hotel in Skipton and our beautiful outdoor reception was celebrated in the gardens of the venue with over 150 guests celebrating with us into the evening.
We laughed from start to finish and both wish we could do it all over again.
I can’t wait to wear my dress again and plan to wear it on every wedding anniversary.
