Natalie and Lee’s colourful wedding instantly caught our eye in our group. We had a little chat with Natalie to tell us everything from proposal to big the day…
How did he ask?
Myself and Lee have been best friends since high school. 10 years later while teaching me to drive, we finally fell in love. After 5 years together Lee proposed and of course I said yes! We were on holiday at Disney World in Florida, and was dining at the California Grill restaurant, who’s rooftop terrace overlooked Cinderella’s castle at the Magic Kingdom park. While standing outside watching Disney’s `Wishes` fireworks, Lee asked me what my wish would be. While I was thinking of an unselfish answer, Lee took my hand and turned me around. He was down on one knee, holding an engagement ring telling me that his wish was that I would be his wife!
How did you decide on your theme?
I have always loved Disney and knew that I wanted it incorporated into our wedding, discreetly without it being too tacky. I had a few funny looks when I told people what I was planning, but I’m glad I stuck to my ideas and had the most perfect day. A vintage Alice in Wonderland theme was decided with a touch of Disney Pixar’s ‘UP’ and our wedding theme was green as that is Lee’s favourite colour.
We love all your little details – tell us about them?
One of my best friends Shellie made our beautiful teapot centrepieces and I added my own creative touch to our guestbook, cake knife and guestbook. We even used our own handprints to make an ‘UP’ themed post-box for our wedding cards. I had a beautiful coloured bouquet made to represent the balloons from the film. We also had ‘drink me’ shots and Mickey Mouse shaped bottle openers as our favours.

Whats your most memorable moment?
My most memorable moment was sitting at the top table with my husband by my side, thinking I had never been so happy, looking around at all our friends and family together under one roof, all so happy laughing and enjoying themselves.
Awww – what a lovely day. Wishing this special couple a lifetime of love and happiness. YWH x
