Kimberley and Nathan instantly bonded, in a friendship that grew over many years. "We eventually realised it was true love," says the bride. But Nathan's proposal still came as a surprise. Nathan had suggested a walk up the hills where his grandmother's ashes were scattered, and at the top he proposed – and a photographer was waiting to capture the moment he got on one knee. Here, Kimberley tells us more about their big day...
The location was perfect and we loved the view over the lake.
I wore Dana by Maggie Sottero. The shoes were personalised Converse trainers with Swarovski crystals on. I wore my mum's tiara, which my sister also wore on her wedding day last year.
I had an Aston Villa garter made especially.
Nathan wore a three-piece navy suit and a grey waistcoat to stand out.
My bridesmaids wore long baby blue dresses, with up dos and natural make-up.
For the centrepieces we had large cards printed with verses and real flowers in them, as well as wedding bingo cards for the speeches.
We had a floral arch, a flower wall, as well as blooms on stands along every row during the ceremony.
The first dance was one of the highlights for us, and afterwards the DJ got everyone up on the floor, dancing.
Words can't describe the happiness and love we both felt but also the calmness as everything just felt right and we knew this moment was just the beginning of our lives.
