We chatted to with Fross bride Staciie to find out all about her beautiful Mediterranean wedding in a mermaid-style wedding dress by Ashley & Justin!
How did your partner propose?
On my 28th birthday (2years ago), our daughter Dottie was just born 3 days ago and Jamie, Myself and Frankie (our son) and Dottie were all in bed chilling out. Whilst I was feeding Dottie, Jamie & FJ went down to get some breakfast and tea in bed. When they came back upstairs, there were cups of tea and cupcakes on this tray that Jamie had bought up for us all. Whilst Dottie had just finished her feed and was looking at her, Jamie had asked what cupcake I would like off the tray, as I turned round in between the cupcakes was a box with this most gorgeous ring! My face just said it all, but Jamie then asked the question I had been waiting for!… ‘Will you marry me?!’ He said! I couldn’t believe it!!!! I was so shocked, and gob snacked I just gif my face with the spare hand I had and cried! I obviously said yes!!! And after that moment everything just felt so strange and magical for the rest of the day!…Then few days lately that’s when the wedding planning commenced! Lol
What’s the best piece of advice you received in the run up to the big day?
Just to stay calm and positive, I was very lucky that everything went perfect on the actually day but just have to go with it with whatever may happen if it does!
How did you go about finding the perfect wedding dress?
I was following a few bridal shops on Instagram and ‘Fross’ was obviously one of them and was my first one too I visited and found ‘The One’!
How many dresses did you try on before finding The One?
Oh god!!! Mmmm about 5/6 then my actually dress was just there front of me on display. I chose a wedding dress from Ashley & Justin, which was strapless, with beautifully beaded lace embroidery on a mermaid silhouette gown, with ruffles.
What made you fall in love with the dress you chose?
The way it felt on, the look and style of it! Was just perfect!
What bridal accessories did you choose?
I chose a beautiful long 2 tier veil with diamanté’s on it. (It finished my dress off beautifully!)
Tell us about your wedding day.
We got married in Cyprus on the 9th May 2019 and was perfect! Married outside a chapel with family and friends to share our special day, we said our ‘I do’s’. Then we had a cocktail reception with nibbles and variety of cocktails! (which were amazing!)
Then we had our sit-down dinner in this enclosed area called the ‘Secret Garden’ with a beautiful water feature on the middle with tables either side and Jamie & I at the top on our own table! After the delicious meal, we danced the night away with everyone and was just the most perfect night we both and everyone will never forget!
What was your favourite moment from your big day?
Marrying my best friend and having our family and friends there to witness every moment!
What theme did you pick for the wedding?
We had a very pretty and glamorous set out and our theme colours in the end was dusky and rose gold pink.
What advice would you give to other brides-to-be?
Just to enjoy every second you have! as when people said to me it goes quick it really does!

We haven’t been yet!… but hoping to go to Greece Santorini!
