9th April 2009
We meet in 2001 at the seaside resort of Tenby in South Wales. Adam was on holiday with his family and I was on a night out.
I’m now 25 and Adam 34
We visited Tenby on our 6th anniversary (October 2007) and Adam wrote in the sand “will you marry me” but the tide came in and washed it away so he had to do it 3 times!!!!
No neither of us wanted one ‐ too much hassle!
Adam made all the stationery (he has much more patience than me!). Other than that I narrowed choices down and he got to “help” to make the final decision.
Yeah ‐ everything got used, in particular the forums!
Yes, we visited the Leeds store!
I had a Benjamin Roberts 705 and bought it at a shop in Swansea but I had it altered elsewhere.
Yes, I had two flower girls who are Adam’s nieces ‐ they were 6 and 10. We got the dresses from Monsoon‐ fell in love with them! I also had my three best mates ‐ they wore Dessy dress and I loved them!
Adam didn’t have a best man as he couldn’t choose! We had our brothers as ushers and Adam’s oldest friend as our third usher. We hired the suits from Dyfen Menswear ‐ fab!
King Arthur Hotel, Gower, Swansea
We hired two Beetles to match my bridesmaid’s Beetle too ‐one old and one new! Lovebug ‐it was fab!
We had 80 guests but on the day 69 came ‐ the travel from Leeds to Swansea was too much for some guests.
Yes ‐ we went for black & ivory with a hint of gold/daffodil yellow
We had a simple candle on a black place mat ‐ stylish and simple.
We had white roses (Yorkshire flower ‐ Adam is from Leeds) and daffodil (my fave and its the Welsh flower). Our florist was Elizabeth Gordon ‐ she was fab!
We wanted simple‐ leek & potato soup for starter, welsh beef & yorkshire pud and broccoli & cream cheese parcel for us veggies and then guests had the choice of apple & blackberry crumble or raspberry cheese cake! All was very nice!
We had a 4 tier fruit cake which was made by my mum’s friend ‐ it was so lovely!
Yes,we had a magician & casino ‐ it was very good!
We had one with Trailfinders as we are hoping to return to Australia where we visited in 2005.
We stayed at the hotel for the first night and then went to Bath for two nights by using Tesco clubcards ‐ so didn’t cost a penny!
The whole day!
Yeah ‐ major dress issues, I didn’t like it and it needed major alterations ‐ plus the shop went bust! On the day the registrar wasn’t very professional and upset me so much that he spoilt the ceremony!
