Jade & Sam
We meet on a night out at our favorite pub - Jack Dugan's where the music is loud and the Irish whiskey is flowing.
One unexpected day...
Even though we had picked out an engagement ring together I still wanted there to an element of surprise, so Sam held onto the ring and when i least expected it; he dropped down to one knee while we were at home one afternoon and asked me to be his wife. Of course I said yes!
The planning process...
We both really enjoyed planning our wedding as we both had similar ideas of what we wanted. We both wanted a country style wedding with an elegant touch. What made the planning even more interesting was that we were also expecting our second child and it was due to be born around 5 weeks before our big day. We had a vision for what we wanted and we made it happen thanks to our family and wonderful suppliers. It was a very busy time but was so rewarding.
The highlights of the day...
The highlight for use was definitely 'The First Look"! It was a last minute decision but it was the best decision; such a special moment with just us two that we will both treasure.
We loved how our ceremony was very family orientated with our four children and to symbolise the union of our new family we did a sand ceremony which was super special. The beautiful coloured jar sits proudly in our family home.
Our reception was so amazing, filled with additional friends and family. We then shared over feast style grazing boards and main meal which we all loved.
Something to remember...
"Take your time! Do your research, find out what you both want and work with suppliers that can turn your dreams into a reality. We got a lot of inspiration from Pinterest.
