Roxanne and Marco were married on 1st July 2017 at Hengrave Hall in Bury St Edmunds.
How did you meet?
At our friend’s (Matt & Patrizia Betts) wedding. Marco was a friend of the groom and I was a friend of the bride. First time I went on a date with Marco I told him that I wasn’t looking for a relationship – his charm won me over.
How did the proposal happen?
We went away to Rome with two other couples one being Matt and Patrizia. They all knew what was going to happen except for me. On the first day we were so busy that at night I didn’t want to go out, but Marco and the others had other ideas – We went to a beautiful restaurant called Imago that over looked Rome and the rest is history!
Where did the wedding take place?
The stunning Hengrave Hall in Bury St Edmunds Brownie points to Marco for finding this hidden gem.
What did the bride wear?
My dress was from Ronald Joyce called Antonia. When I saw the name of this dress I knew it was the one, not only did it look beautiful, but the name meant so much more. My dad’s name is Antonio and my Nonna’s Antonietta both have passed away and thus it was like they were both there in spirit.
What did the rest of bridal party wear?
Sophie my Maid of Honor wore a navy Ronald Joyce dress and Lianna and Olivia both wore sliver sparkly dresses.
What was your theme?
Our theme was sapphire blue and silver with a touch of sparkles. What girl doesn’t like bling? We got the theme from my engagement ring as I have a sapphire stone.
Describe your cake:
I went to Love of Cupcakes with an idea and some flavours and she did the rest it was amazing! I wanted about six tiers and ended up with eight! Four of the tiers were dummy and the others were salted caramel, champagne and strawberry passionfruit and lemon and white chocolate and raspberry.
My something blue was my ring and matching earrings
What were the highlights?
It’s hard to say as everything was just so perfect, but if I had to choose I’d have to say our first dance, which started with a slow song, where we covered in confetti, that flowed into a fast song with everyone coming onto the dance floor.
How did it end?
I didn’t want it to end; I wanted it to go on all night. Marco and I retired to the bridal suite with a bottle of Laurent Perrier Rose Champagne and wedding cake and sat reminiscing about the whole day.
