Tell us how you first met? Who what when where why? Give us all the dirty details: We met in Cardiff when I was working as security on a bar. Kirstie asked to hold my coffee as it was cold and I obliged. When Kirstie left, she asked my name, I asked for her number and the rest is history.
Tell us about your first date?: I travelled to Chepstow to meet Kirstie for a Sunday lunch. We spent all afternoon there before I headed home, travelling back for date 2 and 3 that same week.
When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?: Kirstie told me she'd booked a holiday for us after a couple of months of dating, I knew then she was spontaneous enough to keep me on my toes.
How did your partner propose?: I took Kirstie for a picnic on the cliffs overlooking Rhossili Bay in the Gower and waited til after eating to drop to one knee.
Tell is the one thing you love most about each other.: Kirstie's loyalty and sense of adventure, and Kirstie says my chivalry and sense of humour.
If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does.: Kirstie snorts when she laughs...which makes her laugh more...the cycle continues.
What’s your favorite trend for weddings right now?: We both like the rustic themed weddings that are more popular now; more casual menswear, more outdoorsy.
Tell us about your wedding?: Our wedding was perfect, we had exclusive use of the amazing Manor at Old Down Estate in Thornbury for the whole weekend. The Friday night we had a relaxed evening with close family and friends and then the day itself the wedding was great, considering it was the end of October. Everything went great and everybody says the had a fantastic time. The staff, food and band were spot on and most importantly, Kirstie and I were married.
What inspired your décor or theme?: We both like the less formal, more intimate, rural weddings.
What’s one thing you wish you would have known earlier in regards to planning?: Not to stress, it all works out.
Besides getting married - what’s the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?: Seeing all our friends and family together.
