Melisa and Josh tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at Bashall Barn Images courtesy of Fish 2 Photography An all time love Melisa and Josh met in 2018 at Valley Church. “Josh had been going there for years, but I had just joined,” says Melisa. “I saw him playing bass with the worship team and I was attracted to him right away. I loved how funny he is and that he lights up a room.” Josh proposed in October 2021 in the Lake District. “He knew of a couple who had a sailboat, so knowing how much I loved the water, he arranged to take me on the boat,” shares the bride. “It was all misty and you could see the hills and mountains in the background – it was beautiful. I was admiring the view and when I turned around, Josh was down on one knee! I knew that Josh was going to propose at some point, but it was definitely a surprise.” Read on to see some of Melisa’s favourite moments from their big day... 39 REAL WEDDINGS
