What is your first name?


Who is the groom?


When is your wedding?

4th June, 2011

How and when did you meet?

Rob and I met online, through, three and half years ago. We chatted through messenger, then by phone for a couple of months before finally meeting in a Cafe Nero. We clicked straight away and coffee soon turned into drinks at a local bar… Our relationship started out long distance whilst I was at University and we went through ups and downs as stresses of university work and distance put pressure on our relationship. However, we survived and four months after I graduated he moved in with me and soon after we got our handsome dog, Bertie…

How old are you both?

I am 23, Rob is 27.

Where, when and how did he (or you!) propose?

Rob proposed to me with a champagne breakfast at home in bed. He woke me up with a kiss and handed me a tray with champagne, scrambled egg and smoked salmon. Our dog was asleep at the bottom of the bed – the perfect proposal!!

Did you have hen and stag celebrations? If so, what did you do?

Yet to be planned!

How did your groom help with the wedding planning?

I run all decisions past my Mum, then him.

Are you having bridesmaids? If so, who did you choose and what will they wear?

Yes, my oldest friend, Chloe who I have known for ten years – havent picked outfit yet.

Are you having a civil or religious ceremony?


Where will you hold your ceremony?

St Martin’s Church, Ryarsh, Kent

Where will you hold your reception?

Parent’s garden

How many guests will you invite to your wedding, and do you have a separate evening guest list?

90 for ceremony – 130 for evening.

Will your reception have a particular theme in terms of colour or style?

It will do – still under debate!
