A Love for Caring ...

Tuesday, February 15 2022

We're so proud of this beautiful couple who met at a local hospice caring for patients. But it was many years later they discovered their love for each other. Marylyn wears our Alie Street Arabella Dress with matching Faux Silk Sash.

Where did you both meet?

Col and I first met 11 years ago at our local Hospice where we both worked, myself on the nursing side and Col on the physio side caring for people with palliative care needs. Circumstances meant we lost touch until we bumped into each other 4 years ago while shopping. We went for a coffee and never stopped talking! A couple of weeks later we went on a proper date and the rest, as they say, is history. We got married on 3rd September 2021.

Where did you marry?

We now live in Lytham in Lancashire and we chose The Clifton Arms Hotel as our wedding venue. It is a lovely hotel on the front at Lytham overlooking Lytham Green and the Ribble Estuary. We wanted a venue where we could have the ceremony, the Wedding Breakfast and the evening do - it is also just 5 minutes from our home! It was a perfect choice for our perfect day, thanks to our guests, the Registrars and the hotel staff.

Tell us about your dress!

I didn't want a traditional wedding dress. I wanted a short but floaty dress that looked bridal. As a more mature bride it wasn't easy to find one until I came across Alie Street. So many lovely dresses to choose from. The first dress I ordered wasn't the right size for me and I returned it. I was so impressed by the returns service I was encouraged to order again. After emailing the customer service team I discovered that I could order more than one dress so that I could choose the style I preferred. I chose the Arabella Dress and a long satin sash for a bit of extra glam! It was perfect and I felt like a bride. Our wedding guests were so complimentary about it too.

Any advice you can share with other brides?

Give yourself plenty of time to make plans and arrangements. If you're not satisfied with any aspects don't be afraid to change things - it's your day. The day goes so quickly, try to take time to enjoy every minute and take it all in. We decided not to have a video (because we are more mature) but the day was so perfect we wish we had.

Fun Facts!

Our first dance was "Dance for Evermore" by Si Cranstoun which nobody had ever heard of. We made up our own dance to it and by half way through the crowd was rocking! Look it up and give it a listen on You Tube - wonderful words and a happy tune to start the rest of our lives together.

Get The Look

A subtle scoop neckline and full skirt give this Alie Street wedding dress a lovely 1950s feel. Cut just above the knee in premium corded Ivory lace with subtle stretch for comfort and the perfect fit.

A Love for Caring ...
