Beth and Dennis’s October wedding at The Gardens in Yalding was just perfect. Surrounded by family and friends, as well as their 4-month-old, these guys had such a fabulous wedding day. Check it all out here.
First names: Beth & Dennis
Ages: 26 & 25
Wedding date: 21/10/2019
Venue: The Gardens, Yalding
How did you guys meet, tell me all?
We met when I went on a weekend away with one of my friends to visit his friend (Max our Best Man) when he was at uni and Dennis was one of his housemates. We went on a few nights out together and after the weekend, Dennis text me to see if I’d got home okay and we’ve spoken every day since. We did long distance for about 6 months until he finished uni and then he came down to Kent to live with me. 5 years, too many house moves and a baby later, we’re getting married.
How did you get engaged, is there a cool story?
It was a really simple, very ‘us’ proposal the day after our anniversary. I was working from home and Dennis had the day off, he’d just finished folding all the washing (after doing it without being asked), I turned around to find him on one knee in the door to my office. Being just us and at home made it very special as I’d always said I’d say no if he proposed in public!
What made you choose your wedding venue, did you look at many?
We only looked at two venues but The Gardens felt so warm and inviting that it was easy to envision getting married there, so it had to be the one!
What was the inspiration/theme of your wedding?
Burgundy with an autumn feel to match the season.
What is your first song and why?
Our first song is ‘Say you will’ by Hearts & Colors. They are one of our favourite artists and the words just fit perfectly with our day.
What would be your number one tip to other couples planning their wedding?
Try and prepare as much as you can before it gets too close to the day, avoid having a baby a few months before (very stressful) and don’t move house a month before the baby is due (also very stressful). And lists, write all of the lists!
