Gaynes Park wedding with Hannah and Bradley

How did you guys meet, tell me all?

Good old TINDER! We both swiped right, and the rest is history…

How did you get engaged, is there a cool story?

Originally Brad was going to pop the question in Mexico, but this was during Covid and a few days before Mexico went on the red list! 

So, a last-minute change to Lanzarote, Brad had to change his sunset dinner in Mexico to something new! He booked a little set-up on the beach for us and told me that we should have some photos with our friends before dinner by the hotel sign…I should have known then as he doesn’t love taking photos!

As we wondered down (me oblivious) our friends encouraged us to take photos on the beautiful little set-up on the beach, I said we couldn’t as it looked like someone had set it up and what if they come along…

They got me in there, and as we were having our photos taking Brad got on one knee and popped the question. Also, because of all the changes, we ended up getting engaged on Friday 13th!

What made you choose your wedding venue, did you look at many?

We were planning to get married in Santorini, and we viewed one other venue in the UK before Gaynes Park. 

When we viewed Gaynes Park we just knew it was the one. Even if we get rain (hopefully not), we felt the orangery was the perfect place to get married and with the beautiful long aisle! It was a venue we loved no matter the weather in the UK!

Tell me about your dress? Who was it designed by and was there a particular style you were drawn too?

My dress was my wild card choice, nothing like I imagined I would ever pick. Brad will see this so I may have to email you separately…

What was the inspiration/theme/styling of your wedding?

We really wanted something classic and timeless if we could create that, something we wouldn’t go off over time and would always love the photos.

We have gone for nude and champagnes tones.

What is your first song and why?

When we got engaged Brad was meant to give them a song to play for us and he didn’t, Ed Sheeran Perfect happened to play so it has always reminded us of that moment. But we didn’t just want Ed Sheeran as it has become quite popular, we found the version with Andrea Bocelli (who we both love!) so it was perfect for us.
