There's magic between us

Leah and Sam met during a night out in 2012.

 "We were both with our friends," explains Leah. "He asked me to dance and we ended up swapping numbers.

Couple kissing We stayed in touch and months later, he finally plucked up the courage to ask me out on a date. Two years later, he asked me to be his wife, and the proposal was a huge surprise."

Here the bride shares some of her favourite moments from their big day...


We loved Ansty Hall as soon as we saw it. It was perfect for us, and the staff were super helpful and friendly. They were above and beyond for us and were incredible.


My maid-of-honour and I made the artificial flowers, but Sam wanted real buttonholes, so we asked CZ Handsaker Floral Designs Ltd to provide them.


For our centrepieces, we chose a mixture of Disney and Harry Potter-themed designs.


Hay's Bakes and Cakes provided our cake, which had hidden Mickey Mouse ears incorporated into the design.


Sam and I gave our guests hangover recovery kits as favours.


To decorate the space, we chose lanterns and a beautiful arch.

Bride I chose a gorgeous A-line sparkly dress which I accessorised with a belt, Charlotte Mills shoes and a cathedral-length veil.


Sam wore a blue suit with a burgundy tie and grey waistcoat provided by Peter Posh Formal Suit Hire.


The bridesmaids opted for burgundy Ever-Pretty dresses, and my maid-of-honour chose a different design to help her stand out.


All of the speeches were wonderful. People were surprised that I didn't divorce Sam by the end as he told everyone I had an accident on holiday, which was mortifying but so funny.


The best man surprised us with signing waiters at the end of the speeches, who were incredible! Later in the evening, we had a DJ and photo booth from Vibe Entertainment.

Honeymoon Our wedding was the best day of our lives. We went on a mini-moon afterwards to Portugal for a week, which was lovely. We're planning to go to New York in December 2024 for our honeymoon.
