Today’s military groom Kyle proposed to the gorgeous Sophie before he was posted to the US for three years and the couple organised their wedding in less than three months. Respect, guys.

Nothing in today’s pictures, however, betrays the fact that they were up against the clock. This seriously chic city wedding scores countless cool points, from Sophie’s edgy ASOS bridal dress, those Oriental-style violet silk shoes and stunning urban backdrops.

This wedding gives us all the feels. Who knew that being photographed in front of a lift could look so – well – completely and utterly perfect?

sophie says: Kyle popped the question over an Indian takeaway in our new home. Kyle’s in the Royal Navy so he’s often away but is mainly home at weekends. We’d recently bought our first home together and moved in October 2016. Shortly afterwards, Kyle broke the news that he’d received his new drafting and would be going away to America for three years in January 2017. Then, casually while eating our takeaway, he said, “Sooo, will you marry me?”

Our wedding date was Saturday 7th January 2017. We were married at On The 7th at Manchester Media City. We weren’t looking for a traditional church wedding venue and, both being from Manchester, loved the idea of having a Manchester backdrop for our photos. As soon as we arrived at the venue we knew this was the one. It suited our quirky characters and we loved the laidback feel. It’s a fantastic place and didn’t need much decoration. We did, however, hire some lights spelling out “love” from Love Lights The Way.

The groom and groomsmen all wore navy suits with burgundy accessories and tan shoes. The colour theme was minimal with the flowers being mainly white with a hint of light blue fuchsia and blue thistle.

My dress was a cream, crochet-style lace dress from ASOS bridal. It was down to the ankle, with a shorter underdress and a slit up the back. It had a high neck with small capped sleeves. I wore statement blue floral shoes, which were my favourite part of the outfit – I received so many compliments on them!

My hair and make was done by Nicky Selvidge and my nails by Rare Beauty.

Kyle wore a navy Ted Baker suit with a slight check detail and matching waistcoat. He had a paisley patterned pocket square with a burgundy tie and a pocket watch. The groomsmen also wore Ted Baker in navy.
