How did you two meet/How long have you been together?
We have been together for almost 10 years but actually met in school and have been best friends for many years before that
How did you or your partner pop the question?
He did it on New Year’s Eve, well at about 1 am New Year’s Day knelt down in our kitchen with our lovely cat in one hand and the ring in his other, I didn’t realize what was happened at first I thought he had just taught her a trick, then I spotted the ring! It was such a nice moment
What was your favorite moment(s) from the wedding?
The actual ceremony itself, seeing the way he looked at me and holding his hands. Moments I’ll never forget
Did you see each other before the wedding? If not, did you like waiting or would you rather have done it differently? Tell me why or why not!
No we didn’t, it was difficult but we just about managed it! Especially as we were both traveling there at the same time and he had the money for the cab, there was a lot of texting and careful logistical planning! Couldn’t have done it without Jessie and Angie!
Tell me about your dress. Where did you find it, how did you choose it, how did you know it was the one?
I had tried many dresses on, all of a similar style which I thought I liked, then one Saturday morning, when the shop was quiet the girl helping me, asked if she could suggest a different style, she said she could see my figure and knew what would suit me. I wasn’t sure when I saw it on the hanger but the second I tried it on and looked in the mirror I knew it was the one.
Please list any vendors here and your experience with them!
Angie was amazing, she really did make it special. The photos by Jessie were obviously perfect and we loved the florals by Veronica too. We are grateful to everyone that helped us on the day
DIY-ers….tell me what you made for your wedding! How was your experience putting your personal stamp on your event? Would you do it again?
We made our own vows, it was the night before after a few beers. We’re procrastinators hence why it was done last minute but we said exactly what we meant, and have already started holding each other to these!
What’s one piece of advice you would give to other couples planning their own wedding?
Do whatever makes you happy, don’t worry about other people as you will never please everyone and it’s so easy to get caught up in trying to please everyone else and forgetting who the marriage is actually about.
