First names: Charlotte Murphy and James Curran
Ages: 28 and 28
Wedding date: Friday 15th July 2022
Venue: Chiddingstone Castle

How did you guys meet, tell me all?

We met during freshers week at Sussex University. After 3 years of being friends, we eventually graduated from the friend-zone and became a couple.

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

During the crazy times of covid and “travel corridors” – we managed to get away to Tenerife for a week in December 2020 – the place we first went on holiday together.

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

It was a no-brainer really. It’s a venue that we’ve spent a lot of time at during the summer months having picnics in the grounds. It’s also a location that James spent much of his childhood growing up, fishing on the estate lake with grandparents.

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

Who was it designed by and was there a particular style you were drawn too? – My dress is a very ‘Charlotte’ dress, which is exactly what I wanted… to look like me! It was designed by Mori lee

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

We really like the elegant castle theme that Chiddingstone offers, and countryside charm that is so unique.

What is your first song and why?

Will Young – Evergreen – a song that we mutually belt-out in the kitchen! 

What would be your number one tip to other couples planning their wedding?

Stick to Charlotte’s spreadsheet.
