Tell us how you first met? Who what when where why? Give us all the dirty details: We first met online where we started talking for a few weeks. We went on a couple of dates and the rest is history!
Tell us about your first date?: I asked grace where she wanted to go on our first date. Because she lived in Spain since the age of 10 she asked to go to Barry Island. We went there where I bought her a slush and then we went to Cardiff bay where we sat and talked for hours. I got sunburn then fell over right in front of her. You could say it was eventful!
When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?: After a couple more dates I decided I wanted to become “official” and get into a relationship with grace. The rest is history! We became official on the 30th July 2016!
How did your partner propose?: I took her back to Barry island where we went on our first date! I proposed to her as the sun set on the 17th August 2017.
Tell is the one thing you love most about each other.: Andrew loves the fact that grace supports him in all his decisions and she brings the best out in him!
Graces loves the fact that Andrew is affectionate and makes her laugh!
If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does.: Andrew likes to wind grace up even past the point that she is shouting stop it! He doesn’t have a limit!
Grace likes to announce she’s going to the toilet just to make sure everyone has done what they needed to first! It commonly happens when she gets in from work!
What’s your favorite trend for weddings right now?: Our favourite trend would be to grab different ideas from wedding fares and combine them to come up with something different! We like to create things that are unique.
Tell us about your wedding?: We got married on the 2nd August 2019 at NewHouse country hotel! We had 100 days guests and 190+ evening guests. The day was sunny and hot and everything was perfect! We loved that we could celebrate with all our family and friends! We had people come from as close as England and as far as Spain and even Australia!
What inspired your décor or theme?: We went to many wedding fares to gather thoughts and ideas for our day. We combined Graces favourite colours with the ideas we found to create something unique for our day.
What’s one thing you wish you would have known earlier in regards to planning?: If there was one thing it would be not to stress as much as we did.
Besides getting married - what’s the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?: Grace was looking forward to being pampered and having her hair and makeup done. She couldn’t wait to put on her dress and see everyone’s reaction when she arrived at the venue. Especially Andrews.
Andrew was looking forward to the big reveal of the dress and seeing all his friends, family and soon to be extend family all together to celebrate our special moment. He also looked forward to having the moment where it was all about the two of us focusing on each other and being in that moment together. The photos of his emotions will show this! Haha!
