How did you meet?
We got set up for a blind date by a mutual friend back in 2015
The Proposal – how did it happen?
Andy proposed to me on Christmas Day 2017 at my parents house in front of all my family, just after I stopped being sick in the toilet… pregnant!
Which wedding venue did you choose and why?
We decided to get married at the Alverton Manor in Truro as we fell in love with the Great Hall as soon as we viewed it, it’s very romantic and elegant and fitted in with our vision perfectly.
What was your favourite moment of your wedding day?
My favourite part of the day was as I was walking down the aisle, having everyone there we loved and seeing my husband’s reaction was a feeling I’ll never forget!
What’s one wedding planning tip you’d pass on to all brides to be?
My only wedding tip is do what makes you and your partner happy- it’s your day, no one else’s!
