Introducing Our Most Curious Real Life Brides!

Our Most Curious Wedding Fair Fashion Shows always go down a storm, and this time our Norwich show has a twist - some of our beautiful models are real life brides to be!  Wearing gorgeous vintage dresses from Vintage Deli, accessories by Mystic Magic and Argentum, our brides to be are going to be getting their finest strut on, as well as getting in some wedding-dress practise for the big day! The first fashion show featuring our gorgeous real life B2B's is at 12pm sharp, and our bridalNEXT! show, featuring our up and coming talent is at 1pm, with the contest winner announced at 2pm (you can see a full running order for the day on our facebook page).

We asked our betrothed beauties for the lowdown on their imminent nuptials, their wedding plans and how it all came to be....

SOPHIE O'ROURKE engaged to CHRIS WATKINS
When's the big day?
August 2014, with a bit of luck and finger crossing!
Tell us how you got engaged.
On his birthday Chris lured me to the Sealife centre under the guise of it being a birthday treat for himself - what I didn’t know is that he’d been to visit them a month before to set his proposal up! We were allowed in before anyone else so we had the place to ourselves and he proposed to me in the shark tunnel (I love sharks) and then they let us feed the sharks afterwards as a special birthday/engagement treat. I cried like a massive girl!

Quirky, colourful, origami, sealife, hectic!



SIOFRA CONNOR engaged to PETE BEACOCK
When's the big day?
We haven't set a date yet as we've only been engaged for about a month. Hopefully sometime in 2014.
Tell us how you got engaged.
It's a long story involving a trip to the dump on our 13 year anniversary, a broken down car and lots of rain - basically the car broke down at the dump and we were just talking about things and decided it would be a good idea!
Describe your wedding plans in 5 words.
A geeky vintage hippy party.




KATE COLLISON engaged to WILL GATES
When's the big day?
The 15th of June this year
Tell us how you got engaged.
Will was my first 'serious' boyfriend back when we were 17 and 16 and at 6th form. I moved to London, we split. 20 years later, I found our names written in a visitors book in a church near where I grew up whilst on a visit to my parents. On a whim I copied down his address and sent him a card and in December 2011 he took me back to the church and proposed on one knee in the middle of the path (having taken me to the wrong church first of all!)

Chaotic, confused and last minute!



HANNA FLEUR PRESTON engaged to BURT BIRCHAM
When's the big day?
2014 - exact date TBC.
Tell us how you got engaged.
After 3 years of believing he would never marry me EVER!! It was on the 14th December after a lovely meal at The Last - he did it down by the river and I didn't believe him so got down on his knee twice! Poor lad.
Describe your wedding plans in 5 words.
Ethereal, simple, fun, natural and country. I hope anyways!



JULYANA NASSAR RUMSEY 'officially married' to SKY VIKER-RUMSEY now planning the Brazilian party!
When's the big day? ( And when was the big day!)
Our English wedding was the 20/09/2012 - and our Brazilian wedding is going to be late 2014.
Tell us how you got engaged.
I met Sky randomly in Brazil 2 years ago and we were 'just friends' until a few days before Sky had to return to the UK.  We carried on being good friends (God bless the internet!) until I decided to come to England on holiday to meet him one year later - we got together and as soon as I returned to Brazil we decided to get married. He went to Brazil intending to propose to me but he, as clumsy as he is, hadn't got a ring. I moved to the UK a few months later after the "non-proposal" episode - he took me to the beach, waited for me to go swimming and as I was leaving the water he went down onto one knee in his very clumsy but cute way and proposed. With a ring.

Farm + white tent + barbecue + music + sunset
