Venue: Lympne Castle 

How did you guys meet, tell me all?

We met in a nightclub on New Year’s Eve in 2014, I wasn’t even meant to be going, it was very last miniute.  I thought paul looked like Ben haynow (who was on xfactor that same year) we exchanged numbers, but it took a further 10 months for me to finally agree to go on a date with paul, I don’t know what held me back for so long, but im a true believer everything happens for a reason, and from that first date, the rest is history!! 

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

We were on holiday in Kos, it was our second night and after dinner paul asked if I would like to take a walk along the beach, as soon as my feet hit the sand, paul got down on one knee and asked if I would marry him, I don’t think said yes for about 15 minutes as I couldn’t believe it was happening.

We had been away to Thailand – where I thought paul may have popped the question, followed by new York but still nothing haha! So when he finally did, he was so nervous we didn’t even make the beach walk.

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

We both always wanted the traditional wedding in a church, we had looked at a few venues before, but as soon as we looked around Lympne castle and st Stephens church, we fell in love with the space, views and privacy. Everything about it was what we were looking for.

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

My dress is designed by Justin Alexander, I had this particular style in my head before I went dress shopping, but I did try various styles on just to make sure it was the one, I feel it suits the venue style and hopefully, Paul loves it too!

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

I always wanted something I could look back on in 10 years and still love it just as much as I did back then, something timeless and classic, simple yet elegant. 

What is your first song and why?

Our first song is Miguel – adorn, I spent a very long time, listening to various wedding songs, and nothing really felt right. The words are very meaningful, yet its quite an upbeat song which is what we wanted, to enable our guests to join in with getting the party started!

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

Choose your venue first, everything else will come from that, themes, dress style. 

Keep a running spreadsheet with payment details and dates so its easy to look back on, theres lots to do so any way of making things easier helps!.
