How did you guys meet?
We met through online dating, probably when it was a bit less cool. Less swiping but much more fun.
How did you get engaged? Is there a cool story?
We went on a boat holiday to Greece with another couple. Sam was very ambitious with the proposal. Whilst bobbing around in the water, the key to the boat floated past us. I quickly grabbed it, scared it would sink. Turns out the ring was on the keys and I turned to Sam and he asked me to marry him. Apparently, he tried to do this the previously in the day and managed to come away with some pretty severe sunburn having followed me around all afternoon.
What Made you choose your wedding venue?
Surrenden is Sam’s family home and it is beautiful. Both Sam’s brothers got married abroad, so he was keen to make sure at least one of them got married there.
What was the inspiration / theme of your wedding?
The inspiration was simplicity, focusing on getting everyone fed and watered is the key!
Where did you get your beautiful dress?
Hayley Elizabeth Bridal, Orpington. - @hayleyelizabethbridal
What was your first song and why?
Cyndi Lauper - ‘Time After Time’ - It’s a tape that Jo had as a 6-year old and wore out listening to it. But we also planned on coming in to the reception tent to Bastile, as that was the first gig we went to together.
What would be your number one tip to any other couples planning their wedding?
We initially thought that looking to make the wedding super personal was tricky, but actually the choices that you make on the standard stuff makes things ‘very you’. You may not need to invest lots of money into gimmicks. Also, just relax on the day, people feed off of your energy!
Where where your suits?
Sam had his suit make at Whitcombe Shaftsbury
