HE proposed in front of thousands – and now Michael Frost has married sweetheart Georgiana Brice in equally romantic style.

The happy pair got married at the Square Tower, Old Portsmouth, with a lavish 1950s theme setting the tone for their big day.

Michael made the headlines when he asked for Georgiana’s hand while performing at last year’s Southsea Carnival with his band The Silhouettes.

The crowd erupted into applause when she said ‘yes’ at the gig on July 23.

Georgiana, 27, stunned guests when she emerged from a 1959 Ford Zephyr wearing an authentic white wedding dress on Saturday.

Michael, 28, who is lead singer and ukulele player with The Silhouettes, wore a 50s style suit.

Guests also dressed in outfits from the era.

The couple, who live together in London Avenue, North End, said the day was perfect.

Optician Georgiana said: ‘It was lovely – it really was everything we imagined it would be.

‘There were lots of people there who are really important to us, and all our family made it, which was great.

‘And everything went really well which was a bit of a relief.’

After the service at the Square Tower, the wedding party enjoyed a few drinks in the sunshine at the Spice Island Inn before heading off to Merchistoun Hall, Horndean, for the reception.

In keeping with the theme, guests there enjoyed a show by 50s band, The Phantoms, and swing dancing, followed by a ukulele set by groom Michael.

The musician, who also works as a gas engineer, said: ‘We really like everything about the 50s era.

‘The music is great and really good to dance to, and the clothes are much more stylish and fashionable than modern clothes.

‘It’s really nice to do something a bit different – we’ve had a lot of fun with it.’

The couple plan a short break together in London tomorrow before enjoying a longer honeymoon next spring.

Georgiana added: ‘We’re not sure where we’re going to go yet, but it will be somewhere nice and hot.

‘Having a bit of extra time between the wedding and the honeymoon means we can save up more money to make it a really special holiday.

‘We’ve had a lot of help from the family, but it’s been so busy preparing for the wedding that we’re both really looking forward to having a bit of time to relax in the sun.’
