<3 Mr and Mrs Smileyfaces: 7th February 2016 <3




So so so so SOOOO excited to be making my very own Bride To Be/Wedding Planning Journal

Okay so, we have been together for 4 years next month but we have been close friends for 9 years! We had spoken about engagement over the last few months and we agreed we would be engaged very soon! He asked me to show him which ring I liked so I did and he went and bought it. The proposal was sooo unromantic and he just told me how much he loved me and wanted to marry me and got down on one knee in the living room of course I said yes!

Straight away I wanted to start looking at wedding stuff and planning as much as possible and so far we have the venue booked and have a consultation on tuesday evening with the photographer we want so hopefully that will be booked then. I will do separate with the details of the venue etc!

I shortlisted three venues that I really liked and that were within our *relatively small* budget. We went to view all three and we both fell in love with the last venue we viewed which is Mytton Fold in Blackburn It is in such a lovely rural location, so quiet, very impressive to look at both inside and out and the gardens/grounds are lush. We went for a february date as it is the cheapest but we had already said that we would be happy with any month except summer as we dont cope well in heat haha!

We get 60 day guests and 100 evening guests and loads of extras for £2116 which is great value!

Will upload some piccies now

Photographer will be these guys: www.eighthavenue.co.uk They are friends of mine and have done several shoots with Oscar when he was younger and I have known them for a few years so would be very comfortable with them doing it for us We have a meeting with them on tuesday evening to look at packages and discuss a few things then hopefully can get it booked.


Colour scheme will be pale blue, like a powder blue? Love the colour of these bridesmaids dresses:



Will have just white flowers for bridesmaids and my flowers will be white with a teeny bit of pale blue in there somewhere.

Bridesmaids have been asked and so have best men (hes having two )

Will update more as and when I have exciting stuff to post Sit back and get comfy, we are here till 2016!

Hi!! My first stalker yay!

We live about 30mins drive away but we really loved it! Didn't look at Mitton Hall: we looked at Leasowe Castle which is on the Wirral (liked this one but the inside was a bit 'dated', could have done with cleaning up a bit) and also looked at Lancashire Manor (didnt think much of that at all). We just loved Mytton Fold as soon as we drove up the driveway!

Its sooo quiet round there, you are very lucky!
