How did you meet?
My husband and I originally met in school when Tom came to find me to give me my Dad’s phone as he had left it in his cricket bag from cricket at the weekend as Dad used to teach him when he was younger. Then, once we left school we came together in the same friendship group.
The Proposal – How did it happen?
Tom proposed to me at Christmas when we were putting up decorations. He attached a note to one of the baubles and I had to follow clues around the house until the last one told me to turn around and he was down on one knee popping the question with our dog by his side!
Which wedding venue did you choose and why?
We got married at St. Hydrocs at Lanhydrock Church and then we had our reception at the beautiful Pengenna Manor in Wadebridge. We choose this venue because we loved the beautiful barn lit up with fairy lights and Pengenna House was perfect for us and our family to stay. The grounds are also stunning and we just fell in love the first time we saw it! Richard the owner was fantastic!
What was your favourite moment of your wedding day?
We had so many favourite moments it’s so hard to choose! I think it will have to be after saying our vows with all our friends and family around us – after a long 15 months wait! Roger was also an amazing vicar and set the day off with the best tone and it only got better from there!
I absolutely loved my wedding day and everything about it. I would highly recommend Elaine to help you find your dress!
“Thank you SO much once again for helping me find the most perfect dress it really was the best experience I could have asked for. I tell everyone they must come and see you and they all say the same once they’ve been. There really is no other wedding boutique like you. You make every Bride feel special, I really cannot thank you enough! My wedding journey experience wouldn’t have been the same without you!”
