We met at the full moon party, Koh Pha Ngan, Thailand on NYE 2001.
31 & 33.
We were on holiday in Langkawi, Malaysia and Simon got down on one knee in the sea and proposed!
I hired a stretch limo and went up to Vinopolis, London for an evening of wine tasting and Simon hit the clubs of Watford!
How did your groom help with the wedding planning?
I planned it all myself (with a little help from my mum!)
We are using the Confetti shop to decorate our party venue.
I wore a Shelagh M dress in pure silk with hand painted flowers running from the front of the dress down the train.
I had two mini bridesmaids (my daughter,2, and her cousin, 5) who were in matching dresses and two adult bridemaids who wore matching dresses from Oasis.
His best mate, Chris.
Faraway Villa, Lipa Noi Beach, Koh Samui, Thailand.
A private car for myself, mum and bridesmaids and Simon and the rest of the guests arrived by minibus a few hours later.
We didn’t have a traditional wedding, therefore did not keep to the traditions.
Purple and pink orchids and cream roses.
A seafood BBQ (prepared while we watched) and a selection of Thai food.
A 5 star hotel nearby. It was a vanilla sponge with icing decorated with pink and cream flowers.
Thai music (Khim) while we ate and then a friend hooked up her ipod and we danced and drank the night away!
At the Imperial Boathouse hotel, Choeng Mon Beach, Koh Samui. After the wedding we flew on to Dubai and then Komandoo, Maldives for a week for our honeymoon (without our daughter!) We booked our Thailand travel and honeymoon with Travelbag.

Nope – it all went very smoothly.
I would not change a thing. I was very nervous about organising a wedding over email but the day was perfect!
