Heather Fantham from Stourbridge, who said yes on Friday 18th March 2016
As many of you may already know, once you are a TDR Bride, you join our family! We have our private Facebook group for TDR BRIDES ONLY, we chat every single day, we laugh, we cry and most importantly we support each other along every single step of the way and it is just beautiful!
So, to get to know our brides and their fiancé’s a little more, we asked them to share their proposal story and many of them, so kindly did! And WOW…we were definitely brought to tears with some of these stories, they are absolutely beautiful and we would LOVE to share them with you!
Heather’s Proposal Story…
I was coming to the end of my first year at Cambridge University. For weeks I had been looking forward to ‘May Week’ (a huge tradition in Cambridge where each college holds a formal ball for students to celebrate the end of the year), my mum and I had gone dress shopping for a knock out outfit and I couldn’t wait for what was set to be a magical night.
My fiancé, Jon, travelled down on the morning of the ball and surprised me by telling me that my parents had booked us a room at this beautiful hotel in Cambridge! When we arrived, the receptionist gave us a bottle of champagne and we even had strawberries in the room, explaining that it was part of the deal that my parents had got, I felt so lucky. We got ready for the ball and arrived in style. I felt a million dollars, however Jon had fallen decidedly quiet. He was barely eating, had nothing to drink and said he had an awful headache, I was devastated that he had fallen ill on such a magical evening!
Just before midnight, the main act of the night, James Bay took to the stage and Jon asked if we could stand at the back, away from the crowds as he was feeling ill. However, during James Bays set, Jon got on one knee and popped the question! I was absolutely overcome with emotion and could barely get my words out through the tears of happiness! We phoned around our family (who had know about the WHOLE thing for over 4 months – hence the fancy hotel and champagne!) And danced the night away, Jon’s mystery illness soon disappeared (definitely brought on by nerves!).
The next day, when we returned to my uni digs, my friends had left bridal magazines and chocolates under my door, EVERYONE had known except me (still something that impresses me to this day 😂). It was a magical, unforgettable evening, and one that I will never ever forget. My boy did good ❤
Thank you SO much to each and every one of our brides for sharing your beautiful stories with us. We have absolutely loved reading them and we are SO excited to continue with you on this magical journey from Miss to Mrs 💓💓💓
