How did you meet and get engaged?

In our Irish hometown 11 years ago via a mutual friend. Got engaged in Rhodes in 2017 after 9 years together!

Was there an overall theme to your day?

1980’s Wedfest! A celebration of 80’s movies and music.

How long were you planning it for, and what was the best bit?

A year, with some last minute cramming. Best bit – getting our wedding ring tattoos a couple of weeks before the actual wedding!

How was your day unique to you?

We had a tractor to transport our guests to the stone circle ceremony, tattoos for wedding rings, and a pizza wedding cake. Need we say more?!

How did you meet?

Both of us come from Somerset, but weirdly we didn’t meet there. We actually met at Italia Conti Drama School, where we both trained as actors. 

How did you get engaged?

We got engaged on a trip to Loch Awe, in Scotland. Sonnie had booked the holiday, so I had the perfect cover. It was pouring with rain during a trek up to Avich waterfall and I almost delayed, because it was so stormy, but the waterfall is stunning and I went for it. As I went down on one knee the rain stopped and the sun came out. Magic!

Was there an overall theme to your day?

We played with ideas around Shakespeare’s plays and locations. All the tables were locations and all the guests had their own character. Our favourite was casting our 1yr old Nephew as Falstaff, a belching drunkard. 

Everything else was set around A Midsummer Night’s Dream. We tried as much as possible
