Tell us how you first met? Who what when where why? Give us all the dirty details.
We met in an Irish bar in Chambéry in Romain’s home town.. 6 years ago. On a Tuesday night.
Tell us about your first date?
Our first date Romain took me to a steak house where i witnessed French cuisine in all its glory.
When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?
When I had to go back to Cardiff for Christmas... 6 months after we’d met and we Skyped all day everyday and missed each other so much.
How did your partner propose?
At Peterstone court. We stayed there on Boxing Day 2015 and Romain had booked it as a Xmas present and he got down on one knee in front of the fire place in the library. That’s why we chose to get married there as it’s so special to us.
Tell us about your wedding?
Our day was the so perfect in every way possible. We felt so nervous but everything worked out how we planned.
Tell is the one thing you love most about each other?
I love what a caring and kind person he is. He said exactly the same about me.
What’s your favourite trend for weddings right now?
French chateau style, boho style.
What inspired your décor or theme?
We wanted a French theme with Romain and his family being French but something classy not cheesy. We also didn’t want a lot of colour so we went with whites, creams and sage green- nothing too over the top. It worked really well.
What’s one thing you wish you would have known earlier in regards to planning?
Not to stress as everything comes together in the end!
Besides getting married - what’s the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?
Family and friends coming together- two cultures.
