1st October 2021
Tell us how you first met? Who what when where why? Give us all the dirty details.
We met in a club in Cardiff on a night out and instantly hit it off!
Tell us about your first date?
We went on our first date about a week later, Dylan came to meet me in town while I was with my entire family! Bless his heart I have never seen someone look so nervous, talk about throwing him in the deep end!
He took me to The Cosy Club for a meal and drinks and tried not to laugh when I ordered steak and eggs without the eggs LOL, we then went down to the bay for more drinks and then he paid for my taxi home like the true gent that he is!
When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?
Dylan worked offshore when we met so any time together was valued greatly, he was away for weeks at a time but phoned me and messaged me every day! I knew he was the one! About 3 months in I was 3 months away from turning 21 and Dylan surprised me when he got home from being offshore with plane tickets to Malta and a week's stay in a 5* hotel for my 21st birthday. Nobody has ever treated me like such a princess!
How did your partner propose?
Dylan Introduced me to Ed Sheehan music early on in our relationship and we also bonded over a love of the TV show first dates. He will never admit to this but he loved it! Around my birthday 4 years into our relationship he surprised me again with tickets to an Ed Sheehan concert at Wembley with a meal booked beforehand in the first dates restaurant in London! It was here that as we were finishing our meal and moved over to the bar for a drink, he asked the manager to take a picture of us together. Little did I know that he had asked him to film as he got down on one knee with the most beautiful diamond I have ever seen in a box with a voucher to design the ring myself for the diamond to be placed in. It was the most beautiful moment and in such a public setting we got a round of applause and cheering from well-wishers, it was just beautiful! We then went to the Ed Sheehan concert and danced the night away!
Tell us the one thing you love most about each other.
Easy! Dylan is the most protective, handsome and loving man I have ever met! He looks after me and has definitely worked on the lovey-dovey side of things which he knows I love, there are just so many things I love about him to narrow it down to just one!
Dylan has always said that there is not just one thing, he has always loved who I am.
If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does.
We often laugh about the differences we have in our personalities, Dylan is very black and white whereas I see the grey areas in situations, it drives us both bonkers in certain conversations and disagreements however this often ends in us laughing at each other for being so awkward!
What’s your favourite trend for weddings right now?
We both love the trend of a rustic yet minimal feel.
Tell us about your wedding?
Our wedding was the most special day! After being postponed 4 times due to covid we finally got our magical fairytale. The day was beautiful from start to finish. From the madness of getting ready to finally see each other at the end of the aisle, words cannot describe that feeling of finally getting to the end of the aisle and committing ourselves to each other in front of family and friends. After a beautiful ceremony, we had a delicious meal and then had drinks and danced until the early hours of the morning. I would love to live that day all over again!

What’s one thing you wish you would have known earlier in regards to planning?
Not everything needs to be perfect!
Do not stress the little things as they really aren’t important, the day will be so special even if the little things are not right! Just enjoy!
Besides getting married - what’s the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?
The one thing we both were looking forward to was the idea that this was almost like the first official day of the rest of our lives! The wedding was beautiful but it’s just a day whereas after the wedding you get to do life together and that really is the most beautiful feeling, knowing that your soulmates and can just do anything you want together!
