Our Love Story

How did you guys meet?
 
In the bar at RAF Cranwell!
 
Tell me a bit about the two of you, what do you guys do? How do you spend your time?
 
Sam is a civilian flying instructor who works for the military to help train military pilots who are completely new to flying – through their initial flying training course at RAF Cranwell. He has been a flying instructor for 11 years and has worked in the civilian industry previously, training commercial airline pilots.
Louisa is an RAF Officer and doctor – months away from qualifying as a GP – after 11 years of training! She met Sam from being on a course at the same unit as he worked and lived…the rest is history.
We have been together just over 3 years, and have very similar interests. We both enjoy flying, have a keen interest for classic cars, motorbikes, skiing, diving and cycling. We’ve holidayed skiing and walking/cycling. Louisa is a diving instructor and travels around the world teaching injured service personnel how to dive.
 
How did the proposal go down? (all the gushy details, I love this bit!)
 
During a skiing holiday with our friends. Although not at the top of a mountain – in our room whilst getting ready for dinner – although very personal and lovely!!!
 
How did you choose your wedding venue(s)?
 
Louisa had always wanted to get married at Halton since first visiting in 2004 as an RAF cadet and returning for courses since, you’ll understand when you see the surroundings!
 
What sort of experience do you want your guests to have?
 
A fabulous time, laughing and enjoying themselves in a wonderful location with fizz and glamour.
 
Can you describe some of the details and stylings, does your wedding have a theme?
 
Traditional- Downton Abbey – style wedding
Beautiful church for our ceremony followed by Country Mansion surroundings for the reception. Big and Bold, and certainly not understated!
 
What was the hardest decision during the planning?
 
Keeping the cost down!
 
What advice would you give to couples planning a wedding?
 
Expect the unexpected and don’t worry about the small stuff, remember what’s important about the occasion.

30th August 2019 Katy & Stew wedding video | Buckinghamshire videographer

 

Our Love Story

 
Tell me a bit about the two of you, what do you guys do? How do you spend your time?
 
Stew is an IT Systems Engineer (Geek). His hobbies include xbox, martial arts, drumming and land rovers.
Katy is a podiatrist and her hobbies include cross stitch, other crafts and jewellery making, baking and gin. As a couple our favorite things are Mavis (our cat) and spending as much time in our camper van ‘Bongo Jerry’ as we can. We enjoy touring the UK and hope to head over to Europe next year.
 
How did the proposal go down? (all the gushy details, I love this bit!)
 
We had been on holiday touring in our Camper and I had seen some lovely rings in an Antique shop in York. Stew had purchased one and then when we returned home he suggested we go for a walk at Waddesdon Manor. We walked around the grounds and sat in the rose gardens for a while. He produce a box and asked if I would do the honour of becoming his wife. Obviously I said yes and we celebrated with a round of tea in the manor!
 
How did you choose your wedding venue(s)?
 
We chose the Five Arrows as we have been there before and loved the place. We spend a lot of time at Waddesdon Manor and the fact we could have a small relaxed and fun wedding at the Five Arrows and have some photos taken at the manor meant we never really looked anywhere else. We knew it was the place before we even visited.
 
What sort of experience do you want your guests to have?
 
Fun, relaxed and enjoyable. With Sylar (magician) to help entertain the guests and get everyone chatting and have provided garden games. We don’t want anyone to feel the need to be formal
 
Can you describe some of the details and stylings, does your wedding have a theme?
 
Sunflowers and rustic. Katy and her friends have made lots of bunting to decorate. We want to bring happiness and sunshine into the room.
 
What was the hardest decision during the planning?
 
The guest list. Its impossible to invite everyone and we found it very hard to stick to our numbers. It did make us realise how lucky we are to have so many amazing people in our lives.
 
What advice would you give to couples planning a wedding?
 
Don’t worry about the small stuff. It will all come together and keep your wedding party (bridesmaids etc) small. Less arguments and more fun!

29th August 2019 Hannah & Mark wedding video | Oxfordshire videographer

 

Our Love Story

How did you guys meet?
 
We met through Plenty of Fish. We came away from our first date with our faces aching from smiling so much. We then saw each other every day for the next week and have been inseparable since.
Tell me a bit about the two of you, what do you guys do?
 
How do you spend your time?
 
We spend most of our time outside, either out on the family farm, walking the dog or playing with the horse. We also enjoy scrubbing up and going out for nice meals at new locations. We are also quite crafty and enjoy making things and happy to have a go at anything. All the wedding favour candles are handmade by us.
 
How did the proposal go down? (all the gushy details, I love this bit!)
 
Mark planned a surprised trip to Verona. We went on beautiful tours of Verona, little to me knowing he was looking for the most romantic spot to propose. One evening we headed to the Castelvecchio Bridge after dinner as had been told it looks beautiful at night as is all lit up. We walked down towards the edge of the river with the bridge in the background. He had learnt how to say Will you marry me in Italian and popped the question. He has great taste and ring is perfect, couldn’t have chosen better myself.
 
How did you choose your wedding venue(s)?
 
We always envisaged ourselves having a church wedding and with most of Mark’s relatives having gotten married or buried at the Charlton on Otmoor Church it was an honour to follow this tradition. Being so outdoorsy it only seemed right to have a Marquee reception in one of fields on the farm.
 
What sort of experience do you want your guests to have?
 
We want our guest to have to memorable day to enjoy us getting married and being entertained by elements most people won’t have expected by us
 
Can you describe some of the details and stylings, does your wedding have a theme?
 
We don’t really have a theme. But we have been described as classic with a modern twist and a rustic element.
What was the hardest decision during the planning?
Table planning very difficult with separated parents
 
What advice would you give to couples planning a wedding?
 
Make sure you are both involved with the planning, we have thoroughly enjoyed planning together and having each other support. Always such a shame when the groom doesn’t know what is happening on the day.
