We met in a nightclub in 2001.
He got doen on one knee in my dad’s house on St Patrick’s Day.
21 girls went to Nottingham. We spent the day shopping, went to the Hard Rock Cafe and then went clubbing. Darren went with nine other guys to the horse races.
He helped with everything (except my dress of course!)
My dress was a gold Mon Cheri design with a cathedral length train.
I had four – my two sisters and two best friends. They wore baby blue strapless dresses.
Darren’s best man was his best friend Andy. They had frock coats, pin striped trousers, and cravats to match the bridesmaid dresses.
We had a religious ceremony.
St Joseph’s Church in Luton, Bedfordshire.
The reception was in St Joseph’s Social Club, next to the church.
We had a Mercedes to take us to the wedding.
We had 154 guests, and 60 more to the evening.
Our colour scheme was blue.
We had blue favours, blue napkins and blue tablecloths.
I had a shower bouquet with ivory roses.
We started with soup, and then had turkey, ham, roast potatoes and vegetables for the main course. For pudding, we had apple pie.
Our cake was a four tier novelty cake make in the shape of love hearts with blue sugar flowers to decorate.
Yes – we had a disco in the evening.
We spent it in the Glen Eagles Hotel in Harpenden – it was amazing, really romantic.
Walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing Darren’s face.
Yes – the dressmaker took too much off two of the bridesmaid dresses a week before the wedding. Thankfully, they were able to fix it.
Just enjoy the day – it goes so quickly. Our day was amazing.
