First names: David & Alison
Ages: Both 29.
Wedding date: 11.08.18
Venue: Winters barns

How did you guys meet, tell me all?
We met just over 10 years ago in Amadeus nightclub.

How did you get engaged, is there a cool story?
So, Alison loves horse riding, but due to commitments, she hadn’t been in a while. For 3 months prior to the engagement, I (David) had been having horse riding lessons without Alison knowing. I took her out after work one day to have a quick ‘hack’ at the local stables. I then surprised her with being able to ride and joined her on the ‘hack’. Before the ride, the guys from the stables and I set up a picnic with candles, bunting and fairy lights within a meadow along the hack. We stopped here to have some lunch and after some desert, this is where I popped the question.

What made you choose your wedding venue, did you look at many?
We looked at lots. Winters Barns was immaculate, well laid out and the people who run it seem very organised!

What was the inspiration/theme of your wedding?
Not so much a theme, but Alison wanted a slightly rustic and chilled out feel.

What is your first song and why?
Higher Love – James Vincent McMorrow. We like the original (and the other cover by Whitney!), but it was too lively for a first dance, so this is a great alternative.

What would be your number one tip to other couples planning their wedding?
Plan everything as soon as possible so you can enjoy the build-up before the big day!
